A friend of mine who wrecked his 80 has a twain system. I might get that.

I am sure more people will chime in later. I would think we could fill a hauler with some 40's and or mini's. I would ask him the cost for a full load and then we can go from there.

The system I have is the full R&M system. I have had it for quite a while as it was planned on going into the 40 at some point. I have the exchanger installed but just need to install the Sureflo pump and hardware and get the quick discos added into my front bumper.

I'm still planning on this trip. If the car hauler becomes an option, I'm up for that, otherwise I'll be driving the 40. My TC is sounding pretty bad and I'm hoping to upgrade/rebuild prior to Moab this year. Problem is finding the time to do it myself or the $$ to have someone else do it. I'll keep you posted. If the TC doesn't get some attention soon, Moab may be out.

The Twain is the heat exchanger, I would need to get everything else,

Cool Car Hauler for Rubithon

[quote=mtncrsr;64715]I will try to find out pricing on the car hauler. I know the price is dependent upon the number of vehicles. If there are enough to fill the hauler, I'm sure that it will be cheaper but I will check into that.

Well I called on the car hauler from Denver to Placerville. Holy Cow! For an open carry truck they want $5900 one way! Ouch! The problem is that they think that only 3 maybe 4 vehicles will carry on one truck due to the lift kits and oversized tires. They don't think that any rigs can be placed on the top level as it will break the maximum height restrictions required by DOT. It would be a bummer to scrape off the top of a rig going through one of the tunnnels. Sorry guys I thought that I could do better than that. So who all is driving out or towing their rig and is it possible to tag along?
