I was a bit skeptical until I saw the roof mounted spoiler. Go for it!

i guess the 8.2 diesels don't have such a great rep.

so only took 2 months, but got it done. the guy was a pleasure to deal with, let me customize it however I wanted. I ultimately went for a new axle, new rims, rear receiver, 42" deck, and the Lock & Roll hitch. Pretty happy with it, and the test run this past weekend went well. those trailer tires are 30x9.50 r15.

I did notice the added weight going over the passes though, and got about 10mpg all weekend. Guess that's the tradeoff with bringing a lot of stuff with you. It's a little low on the tongue side, but a new rear bumper on the 100 should raise that an inch or two, if that's not enough I can always lift a little more, or go air bags or something. Or just not worry about it.

Flip your receiver hitch tongue over so instead of dropping down it goes up. That is usually good for moving the tongue up a couple of inches.
