    I did not like Dolan either. Went once for an oil change. They did not even change the oil. Rotated my tires said oil doesn't need to be changed till 10k. I asked for it to be done though, I was pissed.

    Made an appointment to swap tires and have my 40k mile service when I showed up they told me they didn't have time. So I drove an hour to get nothing done. Cussed the service guy out in the service bay and had 3 other people all come out of the woodwork and back me all saying how incompetent and fucked Dolan Is and they are all never going back. Pretty sure if I wasn't saying I'd never go back they would have kicked me out.

    Why would they make an appt if they don't have time it's not like I didn't tell them what I wanted done. If this were my business I would pay guys overtime to provide the service I said could be done

    Tonight is Drainplug's last night in town.
    He's been stalking our thread for ages. Let's get a good look at him so we can pick him out of a police line up
    So who's all going?
    When?
    Where?

    Lots of new Taco goodies arriving soon.
    2 x 100W solar panels https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071JQQL84/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    200Ah Deep cycle gel battery https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01KN7K48W/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    2KW inverter solar charger/controller https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B077HHFDZV/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    80L Dobinsons Dual fridge/freezer (55L/25L compartments controlled separately) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LY5YG9F/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    32" monitor to hook up to the laptop (possibly mounted to roof of shell) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00L3KNOF4/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    Bose Solo 5 soundbar https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01AWLPUAG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    All the solar stuff arrives tomorrow, monitor Monday, fridge 15-17 May (backorder)

    I went with the Dobinsons for several reasons.
    Great reviews https://www.bestrefrigeratorcentral.com/auto-refrigerator-newest-rugged-12v-portable-fridge-freezer/
    Danfoss compressor (ARB stopped using them)
    Dual zones means 25L & 55L can both be fridge, or freezer, or one of each.
    Smaller footprint (for 2qt larger)
    Costs less

    Doing a 8K - 10K trip later this year as kind of a test run for some future overland trips.

    FYI Don't believe your tape measure!
    If you downsize tires 33" to 31" (& 60lbs lighter) (not doing all that driving ^ on 33"s with a 4Banger) your tape will tell you you lost 1" of ground clearance & 1" of overall height.
    This is NOT true!
    From any angle you look at your truck it's 2"-3" shorter

    I don't think so. Wrong direction. I got back from Reno around 3:15-3:30

    I could meet at Great Basin in Reno at 4:30 but would have to be out of there by 5:45 or I could meet at Craft on Martin St around 5:15 and could hand out longer. The downside to Craft is parking can be a pain but its a cool little spot that has a solid selection (its a beer/wine/spirit shop that you can drink at).

    Here's what the trip looks like so far.
    B, D, E, F, H, I, K & N are family or friends
    Still need to find a place between PA & FL to stop for the night.
    More may be added

    The added weight would be the equivalent of cutting my body into several unequal pieces and putting them in different places in the back of my truck

    My experience with them has been hit or miss, but majority miss.

    Trying to buy a truck= insulting
    1st & 2nd service= nightmare
    CPS issue= worthless, had to replace it myself
    3rd & 4th service= decent
