    Pretty sure 3.55. Also should probably drive a whole tank commuting for the week before I make judgement.

    The door sticker has an axle code that will tell you for sure. Mine's L9, I think, which translates to 3.55 with the E-Locker.

    Did you end up with the 36 gallon tank? I absolutely love it. I have a 50 mile round trip commute and can go two weeks between fillups.

    That tank size is worth the price of admission, especially if you tow.

    Yeah, I wish I had the big tank, next truck. Mines the 3.55 non-LS.

    I didn't realize that you could get the max tow without the big tank. Seems like an odd thing to leave out.

    Someone ordered this truck in a strange config. It's a Lariat but only 500a, but heated/ventilated seats and full perimeter sensors. I'm not sure it has max tow to be honest, I might be confused with how many trucks I have driven in the past 2 months. Whoever had this truck before definitely didn't tow because the charge circuit isn't installed.

    I'm going to the dealer today, they owe me some things, and I will get them to print me my window sticker/build.

    Yeah I don't understand bashing another company in that way. Obviously sell your brand but I'm also not someone who responds well to just shitting on something for no real reason. I've been thinking more and more that when it comes time to get another vehicle I'd rather try to go somewhere like CarMax or something and hopefully avoid that. But I don't really know of any around here so I'd probably be off to a subrau dealer...

    So I’ve been prepping for camping season. Designing and building a camp kitchen. Here’s my drawing and what I’ve got so far! Whatcha think? Should be done by the end of the week if I can get my ass in the workshop and finish sanding.

    Good to know! I haven't explored or paid much attention in that area much. Usually go to Harbor Freight, BJ's, then home.

    Back in high school when I was in boy scouts we had something like that made up. It was like the ark of the covenant in Indian Jones. BIIIIIIIIG heavy bitch but it was essentially a full kitchen. Doors dropped down where the grill/griddle would go. both sides had spices, shelves, etc. ends had "counters" that folded down and we set up one of those shower bags for cleaning dishes. Was pretty cool, the legs were what was used to carry it then stood the whole thing up. Thing was the size and weight of a small/midsized office desk. We had a smaller one made up too with a similar design.

    That thing's f'in sweet! And then there's me - precook everything and vacuum seal it, chuck it in a cast iron over a fire. Otherwise, you're eating it cold :rofl: I go for a spartan meal setup when I'm traveling. I'm actually even looking to downsize my cooler. I have an ozark trails 52QT right now and I'm looking to downsize to the 26 instead. I've seen a few videos on youtube of people putting drain plugs on them, so at that point I'm basically sold. Might try to actually use the drain setup off the 52qt so that it's "normal". It doesn't have a runoff cutout like the 52. BUT when it's just me, the 52 is mostly all ice and like, 2 sandwiches. It's nice when I have 4 people and a bunch of beers but, that's very infrequent at best.

    I'll probably get the 26 and keep the 52 for now, but realistically I'll be pitching it after this summer if I don't use it a lot.

    I like the pre-cook or par-cook method too. It's much easier and i'd rather spend my time chilling than being instafabulous. I usually just bring my stove, a cast iron skillet, and my jetboil.

    That cook setup is pretty dope though.

    Max tow was only available on the 3.5. It probably has the regular tow package.

    My 3.5 has regular tow and all the extra options of max tow added separately. It's stupid and only inflated the price.

    That's right, I remember that you need the 3.5EB for the max tow. I may tow a lot but I in no way need max tow, everything I tow is light.

    I don't have the stove setup yet, but I might soon. I want to get a way to secure my grill propane tanks in the bed, mostly to be overkill for driving 2 miles down the road to get the tanks filled for cooking. If I'm doing that, might as well do that and set up a stove next to it, 20# tank would definitely get stuff cooking on the tailgate! We'll see how this year goes, so far I've been happy just using a campfire to cook over :notsure: they're pretty cheap, as long as the fittings work for my tank I might look into it.

    Since I've been camping on the ice and need to cook in the house/tent I learned that pretty much everything I need to cook should be something I can do with hot water. No frying burgers unless it's a beauty day and can do it outside on the grill. No bacon or sausage or god forbid fish fried in the tent or it will smell like that for about a year.

    My favorite is omelets in a bag. I make that for breakfast AND dinner a lot!
