That's a pretty good guess. Funny as hell, but I can assure you the wife would never let me get rid of the F9 unless something else came out that she thought was cooler and got us more mall crawler cred .

Speaking of which, my rear axle sold, and now I am just waiting on the final pieces of the front RA9 axle to be figured out (steering), then that can go on order.

Actually, you are the reason I canceled my 24' trailer order. I made a noob towing mistake with the original trailer order- while I selected one long enough to tow two TJs similar to yours, it wasn't near stout enough (7000lbs- realized you had a much stronger equipment hauler). After that, before re-ordering, I did some more research and basically concluded that I was getting into semi-truck trailer length and decided it was just too much. So I went with a 20' that should be long enough for a TJ and a UTV for the wife.

Believe it or not, I actually prefer pulling my 25' goose neck over my 16' pull behind. It is a much smoother ride, even with 2 Jeeps on it. The length isn't a big issue either, turning radius is still decent with the goose neck. Plus you have the option of splitting fuel with a friend when hauling 2 Jeeps.

Hoping this makes the long hauls a bit easier:

Tundra CrewMax 4x4






XD 810 20" wheels and 34" Nitto Grapplers arrive on Tuesday and Fox coilovers arrive on Wednesday. Predator rock sliders should be here Wednesday as well. Should be a fun 4th of July getting these on for the weekend Myrtle Beach trip. First car I bought for myself in 8 years, I'm pretty pumped .

I'd like one of those. I don't want a loan so it'll never happen

It weighs the least.

This is all for the Tundra? Haha it's a badass truck but why does it need coilovers?

Couldn't you replace the word "truck" with jeep and ask similar questions? Haha. Nice set up. Now you can tow yourself to the next KOH and not have to worry about a ride.

True Mall crawler status means I can't lift it with spacers. It's my poor man's Raptor.

I looked at 2500 Duramax GMC and Chevy, also looked at the F250, they just didn't do it for me. I test drove a Tundra and made up my mind right away, the wife also loved it, so that helped. It has twice the interior room as her H3 too.

And that is 99.99% why I got a truck.

Nice Jay! My good buddy has the same truck, loves it. Get's good gas milage for what it is, and has a lot of power. His truck is just as quick as my reg cab hemi ram and pulls his 4 runner around like it's not even there. The space in the back is crazy, and perfect for the kiddo and a bunch of other stuff.
