Matt we can install that multi pro R1 setup real easy!

Also have a nice big compressor, torch, table grinder, etc. Setting up my own little shop :)

I need all new bushings too and if I were going that route, I'd want to get Passat LCA's and spindles.

Also my fav tow rig ever was a 2005 1ton ford van gasser. It got 9mpg but I could go 75 with 12,000 all day.

Craigslist is dangerous got a 24 foot enclosed in june for a steal. Set up a bench at the end, have to work on some other storage, has a winch, awning, wired for power (i set it up to be fed by an inverter), etc.

Parting and selling the penismobile, will racecar the vette (had been gfs good weather daily). Need to cut back on cars. Ironically eliminating the depreciating penismobile will make car stuff cheaper.

This also is like adding a garage bay.

Old work truck (1/2 ton hemi, single cab, short bed) did not like the new trailer at all. Towed the trailer home unloaded with it. Truck was noping out the whole time stability wise, power wasnt terrible... but the trailer didn't have a car in it yet.

Plus that truck got abysmal mpg towing maybe 7 max.

Cleaned it up spotless, got basically what we paid for it 2+ years ago against a discounted 3/4 ton single cab cummins.


Ss if i reset the trip meter and do a highway trip will show 24-26.

Otherwise 19 is the combined running average.

Truck was seeing 20+ combined before I started pulling with it. Been trying not to baby it though so thats dropped, and pulling.



I like low spec trucks, not adding 20k for the interior of a work truck/hauler. Ecoboost advertises about 12k pulling... my old truck claimed 9-10k pulling. It was bullshit. Goal on this one was to have the claimed towing rating be nearly double what i'd actually be pulling.

So far, mission accomplished.

Much more stable, pulls what i need it to like a champ, and overall mpg is way up, towing mpg even moreso. 8ft bed is also handy work wise.
I understand the low spec truck thing. But you're not an old man(60+) and retired. This will probably be his last vehicle he owns, and will do anything he needs it to do. And he road trips it.

Also, aren't the Ecodiesel and ecoboost competitors in a sense. I haven't looked at numbers but aren't they pretty equal in power? I know the ecoboost claimed an awesome mpg but actually sucked dick, so there's that. I'd still rock an Ecodiesel if I had a use for it.

Trailer is sweet as fuck, nice snag on that one. Also, good call on the penismobile sell. The vette will like that I closed trailer a lot I'm sure!
