Man 'O man is that chick HOT! (assuming by the jeans...if that is a dude....I retract my statement)

I think the first MOD to my trailer is going to be to take the "any attachment to this bumper will void the chassis warranty" sticker off. Then I'm gonna build a rack on the back with a 2" rec under it for my little 4' x 10' trailer to pull my ATV on .

About the only thing I can say about that is GOOD LUCK and take out a lot of insurance on the 4x10 trailer and the ATV.

I like 'em factory stock!
No mods for us except for the screen door handles and the oxygenics shower head. Otherwise factory is great.

When I get this mega cab frame stretched and the 8 foot bed put on it that I have in the barn waiting.....I'll just put the ATV in the back of the truck. This 6.5 ft bed ain't good fer nutin'....'cept ice chests and fish guts.

I have that truck and that bed....I just need another 20" (insert "what she said" joke here) of frame to put them both together like the one below.

Does taking out the factory paper towel holder and trashing count as a mod?

I suggest a second mod to be a recording video camera pointed at the trailer. Best case you can keep an eye on things back there (you will be pretty long); worst case it will make a great upload to the forum!

I already have cameras everywhere. I've also hacked the OBDII port on the Dodge and have all my engine parameters as well as data logging, cameras, family photos, etc displayed on a flat screen. Background found here.

ECM Programmers ?? and Secret Squirrel Chit - Competition Diesel.Com - Bringing The BEST Together

Skip to the end and go backwards. The first dozen pages are where I did it on my old 2002 dodge. The 2009 was a whole new bowl of wax. (hope it isn't frowned on here to link to another forum). If so, mod's delete.

I have two IR camera ports in my bed. Both cameras are magnetic mount.





Hooking on to either gooseneck or bumper is a breeze in the pitch dark.

Good idea and if it has a time recording, he will have a good idea as to when it came loose.

Not to worry. Your links are broken since your forum requires membership (like ours does) to see pictures.

Now set those pictures up to display on a LARGE outdoor screen....repeatedly.....24/7 at your next campsite.

You'll be the hit of the campground! Trust me.

Wait a minute....

I have two IR camera ports in my bed.

Missed that. Nix the outdoor display screen.

Edit: *totally* snagged your gif avatar from that forum!

And I'll 'fess up...that's ALL I got outta there...the rest of it is just bucket-O-bolts gobble degook to me.

But I *do* know what a cam shaft is! That's the outer parameter of my mechanical knowledge. Anything else I gotta ask OC 'bout.

It's just a suspicion, but I'm thinkin' Mr. 4X4 searched the forum and found the biggest hot button topic here, then decided to push it.





DH is prone to doing that; hmmm nice button, lemme push it and see what happens.

Sure. Bought one of these today, turns out one of my favorite local parks has twin 30A service at each pole that's out of phase thus is separate service. I'll have twin 30A service instead of twin 50A service, but I should be able to run both my AC units.
