    I'm down for helping on the other side of the welder.

    My truck is at Auburn OffRoad getting new spindle bearings, at least that is what I think is toasted.
    They already said that the Camburg uni-balls are trashed.

    I used half a gallon. That’s two coats sprayed in the bed, fender flares, rear bumper plastic and front bumper valance and trim.

    I was concerned since the backing plates gets pressed in between but I guess not for the disc setup?

    Anyone ever heard of a flipping the receiver? Does it work with any hitch or nah? I’ll crawl under my truck when I get back to pavement, just curious right now

    Rust, dents, miles, extra metal.
    When you mentioned it the other day I went and looked at mine. I think its specific to the factory ones on first gens maybe. The bolt pattern on either end of the receiver is a nice symmetric triangle so its flip able. Most receivers that I've seen are welded there instead.

    @Fernando , I think this is what you’ll hear from a lot of the dudes I tagged. The Atlas is super spendy and isn’t exactly bolt-on, but it does everything that duals will do and then some without a lot of the hassle.

    I can’t speak from experience, but that’s what I’ve picked up on in the SAS BS and Crawl Box BS threads.

    What's considered 'light towing' when breaking in new gears? I have a 6x10 wood bottom utility trailer and a 7x16 tandem axle trailer I could use to break in the gears for towing... Don't know which to use, I just don't want to over load the gears.

    It’s got a seperate plate so you can slide it over. It’s designed so you can cut the old backing plates and install these without pressing.
