Just picked her up.

Headed home to install levelers and sway bars. Change out 15 inch 2500 pound factory to 16 inch 3500 pound. Will post pics after change out.

As I have the crew cab combined with the 8ft bed I'm setting right at 64 ft....but I had to triple tow with my fiver (golf cart or utv). I'm gonna be about 8 ft shooter than before...and 6000 pounds lighter. Golf cart or RZR now fits into bed.

My rig is about 75' if I pull the boat behind the fiver, but I have two pivot points. Without the boat I'm at about 52'. 64' with the single pivot must be a heck of a rig to drive. Looks great btw.

Yea, I figured out on the way home today...I need lottttttssss of room for turns. I'll get used to it though.
On a sad note I had never had a flat on my 2012 fiver....on the way to the dealer, 5 miles left, to do the trade ...I had a flat...had to buy new tire to complete trip and make trade.

Nice rig! I hope you enjoy!

I used to drive a Tundra that I had to trade in for a more economical sedan because of five years of LONG commutes. Never wrecked it unless you count hitting that parking pylon and putting the requisite dent in my bumper. On the way to trade it in, some lady ran a yield and hit my rear quarter panel. Didn't do much damage, but I was so furious, I couldn't even talk to the lady, I had to make my wife get her info...

Two tires changed.....when it 100 outside and your almost 70 years old...it's tough.....need a break. I like the new look and no fitment problems. About two inches closer between tires.


Old tire look.


Two more waiting.
