I've been pondering about this a bit too - I'm wondering if a roof rack off a subaru wagon would fit.

Re: Minnesota III

I'm coming to the meet! This Ranger hasn't made it to a meet, just my old gold one. When the weather improves tomorrow I can start cleaning the truck up for the meet. Today's weather sucks.

Hey guys, just checking in. Squatted 250 x5 a few days ago, 145lb BW. Probably about 18-20% BF right now, want to get down around 15-17% this summer. Started at 135lbs and about 25% last September.

If I have to leave the ebrake on in my truck the drums in the rear will get stuck. Banging on them with a hammer will pop them loose.

Yes on loctite in the bolts, too much vibration on the wheels to go without. I don't know on the torque specs, might be the hanes manual for the truck. (best $20 you'll ever spend)

Instead of adding a leaf I put heavy load shocks on the back. They double as shock absorbers and extra support for the leaf springs.

Brew in a bag, it's all grain without a mash tun. You use a large mesh bag for steeping grains, like a paint strainer bag. It can be very affordable.

Re: Towing a Travel Trailer?

Good luck!

And if you need any tips adding a brake controller to the truck, let me know. I think I've got some notes and a few pictures somewhere.

I would wrap a grocery bag around the filter once I got it loosened, then sort of wrap it around the filter as I finished detaching it. A little less messy coming out of the wheel well then.

When I had a 3.0 I got to the oil filter through the wheel well. Took the wheel off the first time, from there I just turned it all the way and could still access the filter just fine.
