    I’ll definitely need to check that out. Hard to find trails around the Bay Area.

    You could probably find one cheaper than a new rtt. Wildernest's are another that are no longer made with a similar concept. I've seen them as low as $500.

    Yeah all depends on the condition. Considering you can't buy a replacement tent.

    What do you use to put the new axle seal in?

    I'm about to redo mine, I put a new one in several months ago but it's leaking pretty bad again. I couldn't get it to go in with a seal driver so I just let the axle drive it in, had read that that method would work fine ...but apparently it didn't for me. Have a feeling it got pushed in unevenly.

    Any reason not to use the shorter trans filter?

    I took the family camping. I towed a small trailer for the first time in the Texas Hill Country. Driving up hill was not fun but the rest of the trip was.

    I see that you have the fox 2.5's with the DSC resi's. Got any more pics of how you have them mounted?
    Any rubbing on them at full flex/stuff? I had to get creative with the mounting of mine because the factory hose length was too long

    Haha I was trying to avoid showing them. I need to get new hoses (these are waaay too long but I don't want to spend another 300 just yet) and maybe relocate the resi. I've just rebuilt them and back on so not 100% on how they will fly in their current state. Previous shocks were ads.

    There's a flippac for a 6' bed for sale here in CO for like $1,800. Looked pretty solid.

    Is it just that pic or is your driver side coilbucket about to explode?

    I was hoping that would work when I did it but about 6 months later it was puking oil again. Must've gotten damaged when the axle pushed it in or maybe it went in unevenly, IDK.

    We'll see if I can get it to actually go in with the cheap seal driver kit I got for next time, if not I'll do the axle method again and hope for the best.
