I just don't wanna pay twice for an alignment in another month

Same here. But it's worth it since I can do it anywhere in the US like after a wheeling trip, etc.

Cut down some trees with the brother- and father-in law on my day off. Cut 'em up, split 'em, and hauled them to his house. It was fun.



Brother's-in-law truck is the single cab. I bought mine a month (to the day) after he got his. I like both models a lot!

I used firestone on my last truck and it was hit or miss when the alignment was done. This time I am using sullivan tire. Same deal lifetime alignment and have been happy so far.

Had the day off from work, but didn't have any mods that needed installing. So I figured I would relocate the horns. I know there is probably a dozen ways to this, but this is how I did it. Only had to extend one wire for a horn.

Kodiak Travel Trailer

Pulled the trigger on a 2014 Dutchmen Kodiak Express 166E hybrid travel trailer. $16500 OTD, the price included taxes, Equalizer WDH w/sway control, Tekonsha brake controller, dealer prep, door-mount mirrors, wheel chocks.

3100 lbs dry weight, sleeps 5-6, has the leafspring suspension so I can do an axle flip and get another four inches of ground clearance for those rough roads we all love.

Thanks, and best of luck with your purchase. I was looking at the Jayfeather hybrids, apx the same price for the fiberglass sides, maybe a couple thousand cheaper for the aluminum sides.

The R-Pod 178 was a nice value for a narrow trailer, I think it's 7-foot wide vs 8-foot for the traditional travel trailers, less amenities and sleeping room, lighter, one propane tank vs two. Well, best of luck to you . . . .

I was trying to reduce the purchase to a "per-foot cost", and didn't have much luck, too many variables. The Jayco hybrids had a smaller fresh water tank, aluminum sides vs fiberglass, I was getting kind of lost. Jayco has a 24 month warranty vs 12 month for the Kodiak. Starcraft has a nice hybrid, but some dealers don't carry that brand. Best of luck to you.

Rolled 100k pulling into my driveway tonight.
BTW: That's about 270 miles so far on the tank. I'll gas up on the way home tomorrow.

Old TRD OR shocks compared to new Billy 5100s with 887 coils


Fronts installed. Definite bro lean. Didn't have time to put on the 2" HD AAL pack from Wheelers because I threw out of my back. It seems like the front tires are awfully close to the UCA- there maybe an inch of room. Hopefully that will change once it's aligned. Thanks again to Yota Dan for helping me get this package together.
