That makes sense. While I have your ear John, one thing I would mention being of benefit to customers and would certainly helps sales, would be to have the option of Goodyear G614 load range G tires. Many guys like me take their brand new trailers in as soon as we get them to get these put on and it certainly would be something I would have ordered from the factory if available. Now, technically, I have to buy two sets... (Although, I'll sell the ones that come with it on craigslist...) I know Heartland finally listened to their customers about this and it's now an option on their haulers. Hey, you all would make the money on selling the tires instead of my local tire shop and save me the work. It's a win for both of us... Just something to mention to the higher ups at the water cooler when gossip is slow...

New Guy in Town with an XLR

That has been an option for at least a few months or longer that I know of. We offer our regular brand in "G" rated as an option.

In 5 minutes he emailed me back and told me you all said sure, let us know what the customer wants and we'll get it done! I was pretty surprised and jumped on the opportunity. Mine is going to be two Ford colors I really like. Ingot Silver metallic and Magnesium metallic. I skipped the black and just used the Magnesium both where the XLR gray was and where the XLR black was. Silver stayed where it was. I preferred not having black for a couple of reasons. First, it shows dirt and scratches more than any other color. Second, it will soak up the sun more too. My old saying was, black is the best looking color on a vehicle bar none when it's clean. The problem is, it's never clean... Anyways, can't wait to see it. Ford's metallics have real depth so I'm sure it will be eye catching...
I'm going over your order and it is calling for an LP quick disconnect? Where are you wanting it located. We will have to special order parts for this.

Bob, on my past Road Warrior it was door side front under the slam baggage area. In looking at a picture of a 395AMP it looks like ideally it would be anywhere from the pair of slam baggage doors forward. Does that work?

Speaking of the G614 tires, will they fit on the stock rims?

I have the 8 lug, 16x6.0JJ rims with ST235/80R/16E Westlakes on them. Would like to put the Goody year G16's in LT235/85R/16G on those rims.

I cant find any info on what type of rims they are and if they can handle 110 psi.

It's stamped on the back of the rim. They make you work for it.

I crawled under there and couldn't see anything on the backside of the rim.
Guess I didn't look well enough.
