**Summary Page Updated!**
So i got a bunch of new stuff that i finally got put on the truck. first, some new 265/70 tires to go a little better with the leveling kit...i would really like to go with some 285/70's...but i'm not sure about all the extra work that entails... (almost wish i went there tho...now i have to wait for these tires to run out)
i put y step bars back on for the wife to get in and out a little easier. not sure if i'll leave them...i got used to how high it made the truck sit...maybe i'll just lift the front another notch. =D
I was able, with the help of Ben Bacher, to convince my wife of how awesome a roof top tent would be! (Thanks Ben). So here's some shots of us camping in it for the first time this weekend. (Alaska has been pretty nice this week, but it was still like mid 20's last night, lol)
Sweet spot! the river was almost too loud for me to fall asleep...

We got a little buddy heater and put it on the ground in the annex. worked great! went through like 3 bottles that evening and into the night, but it worked awesome. Even my wife (who's from the south) liked it. I wish i had a picture of us getting our dog up there with us though, lol. but then getting her down was almost impossible. we ended up opening the side window and letting her climb down via the roof, windshield, and....unfortunately, my hood. (i don't think she scratched it though because she was sliding on the frost...) My dog is such a chicken.
Now i need to get my 4 leaf pack put in...she's looking pretty saggy. Bumped my hitch on my way into our campsite. That little extra weight of the tent and bed rack (maybe 300 lbs?!) is enough to noticeably make her sit down. silly soft springs... that will definitely be the next project
Hopefully more to come soon!
