    Why??? That is over tightening them. Fatiguing the studs and lugs eventually they will break, now they are 12mm and you are only going 15ftlbs over spec so itll take a loooooonnnnnnngggg time to break them.

    Here is a pretty decent one SK tools is good stuff

    I’m pretty sure they all do. I was so damn comfy with mine last night. Was mid 20s and I was in my cheap Coleman sleeping bag in my boxers and a t shirt. The cot was clutch as well.

    Yeah I sold my RTT after only a couple trips. Sold it for what I paid for it, so that’s good! Anyways, I just have a cheap $40 Coleman 3 person tent, that I sealed the seams on. It’s held up great so far for rain and snow.
    You’re welcome

    Thoughts....If we were not wheeling rausch I’d have sliders rear swing out and IFS/Transmisson aluminum skid and that’s it. Maybe a hidden winch mount on standard bumper. Ideal situation would to build a Ranger Goat like TAV! That truck is beast af

    Do it and take the PG trails or just be the camp cook. Problem solved.

    *Edit you getting visuals of @EatSleepTacos in his boxers with sealed seams is a little disturbing

    *Edit #2 Good Morning btw

    Just wasn’t for me. I think I overhyped it, and was expecting it to be the best nights sleep I’ve ever had and the quickest set up and tear down. Honestly it’s no easier to set up than my ground tent IMO and now I can set up camp and continue to drive around.

    Setting up camp and driving around doesn’t suck

    It’s pretty nice. I swung by my campsite yesterday and pitched my tent and then drove around some more. That way I didn’t have to pitch it in the dark.

    Oh yeah, and the fooking ladder. I hated that thing and having to climb in and out.

    get your truck on a diet! Mine already feels heavy with all the armor. I can't imagine what yours is like.

    I always pitch my tent in the dark

    Yeah but yours is so small that it’s easy. Mines huge and requires a second set of hands.
