    Is there anything left to grab and try to unscrew it? Generally they are replaceable

    I've broke at least 3 of them off against rocks.

    Usually it's super easy to drill what's left of the old one out, and just screw a new one in.

    Some of my best thinking was done driving home from work every weekend. Bend Oregon to Spokane after a 10 hour days aren’t fun.

    Why are they so noisy all of a sudden? You must have changed the rolling direction. :stirthepot:

    Hell, my new STT Pros are noisier that the old KM2s were.

    Mounted some Rotopax up in the bed of my truck! Super happy with the end result. I just got their mounting plate for the 2nd and 3rd gens, and drilled a hole into the bed side for it.

    Is it okay to bend back my pinch weld where my slider mounts are touching it? After ripping apart the interior to no avail, I have determined my annoying creaking noise to be coming from my sliders where they touch the pinch weld. A test of violently shaking the truck while standing on them semi confirmed my theory.

    I've done a mod or two
    I wasn't alive when tires were made out of whale fat and horse hair so I don't know if that was an issue back in the day. But during the past 60 years or so it has been advised to change direction to even out wear. The bent rim makes the noise kinda soothing haha, that'll all stop when my new rims com in on monday.

    Belts separating. It was when radial tire designs became the mainstrean. And yeah, you weren't around in the 70s either.

    Got a new trailer! Whoever says these trucks can’t tow are terribly wrong.
