Rotopax idea sounds awesome. If you can get it to work, I'm sure some people from the forum (me) would be interested in them.

I do miss my dodge tho, it was bad a.
Pulled my 4800lbs pre runner + trailer thru The canyons with 5 cylinders when it blew up.
I still haven't decided 100% what I want to do. I may sell off everything and buy a brand new one. Or I may keep the WK to DD and get a slightly used one. Will definitely keep an eye out for what you are talking about. Thanks!

I want to do it, just depends if that area can handle the weight. And also, rebel offroad has a patent pending on the idea so I don't want to get slapped with a law suit. But this is near the bottom of the list right now.

Ummmm... no, unless you want to replace it if it doesn't work.

Working on making one. And my beadlock rings have some good scratches so they aren't that easy to clean and/or polish. It would be funny to watch you try.

After our talk on fbook I decided to wait and look for an 06-07 GMC Classic with the LBZ.
Are you thinking about a new cummins or dmax?

Right now I am only thinking about a new cummins because if you belong to treadlightly, you get 1% off invoice on any Dodge, Jeep, and Chrysler plus an cash/financing off. It really all depends on work next year.

The reason I may go Dodge too is because of the megacab. I am tall and hate having to move my seat forward for someone to sit behind me. The megacab is awesome for interior room which is really what I need. Although my gf's dad has a new GMC 2500 and it is pretty slick but so are the new dodges and I like the way they look a lot.

I wouldn't lift it, it will be a tow rig so that is what I would set it up to do but that is a nice truck.

And I have a d-max and really like it and the IFS makes it ride nice. I don't care if it is IFS or solid axle as long as it rides good. Like said above, this won't be lifted, it is a tow rig and I want it to be as comfortable as possible when hauling my jeep to the trail. If I want to drive something lifted, I would just drive my jeep.
