No problem with the tool box. All clear. Yes, ready to roll to California for a week then home and get ready for my big drive to Branson MO for the FROG Rally. We have plenty of space at the campground.

Hit your refresh button. It may take a moment as it is large and has to be down sized a little.

Iggy, I agree with Chap. You are going to hit that puppy sooner or later if you don't watch during large turns and hilly ground. That is the DEFINITION of the KOA at Kingsport. I saw more camper, truck, and motor home damage due to tough hilly terrain and sharp turns into the spots there than anywhere I have been so far. Fort Bragg, NC a close second.

I have more clearance than it looks like in the picture.
I've had that box on 2 trucks now and have over 15,000 trailer miles and have never had any situation like you mentioned.
As you say their are many unlevel campsites but you won't find me there.

Thanks Lou

Nice Iggy. Is that the 6.2L in that truck? I don't see the diesel badge. How does it pull it? That is a great looking rig.

Yes it is the 6.2L gasser. Pulls my 5th as easy as my Powerstrokedid. I'm happy expecially not that diesel has exceeded $4.00 a gal.

My observation in reading some of the posts to the OP is "If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all".

probably me - i guess he didnt see the humor in the cummins diesel comment.

If he finds it offensive then please remove that post cause it was just a joke and no harm was meant by it

Me too most likely. I love the truck. A real beauty.
Best of luck with it!
Course not while driving.
