Yup, has one battery.

It needs new shocks. Time to decide to level it, hmmm.

I love it! Detailer got it looking like new.

Tow our new ST270BH home tomorrow!! I'll post pics up in a new thread.

Beautiful! Detailing it before bringing it home was a good idea!

Wow,

That truck can probably tow TWO trailers in tandem!

Cute kids too!

Have had two super duties, both diesels, but both need help on the rear end for the HEAVY 5'ers I had...
I got rancho 9000 adjustable shocks and airlift wireless obne in cab controller for my bags.... HIGHLY recommend that if you needs bags...


But, I'd wait and see what you need before 'assuming'

Glad to help in any way I can and got lot's of SD stuff for sale !

Hated to get rid of either of my SD's, but traded it in and think we done good

(Amazing how small those tires look - they come up to my waist almost!)

Mine has 18 inch rims and I can just barely see over the hood.

Yeah, the rear needs help. All the shocks are blown. I'm replacing those. Will figure out what to do with the rear next week.

I have an Equalizer hitch. I didn't set it up, camping world tech did. I'm going to spend a hour and set it up myself. Rear went down 1" and front stayed about same.

Here is how it sits:



Not sure on exact tongue weight. Two full 30# tanks and fresh water is 2/3 full, a few feet from front.
Truck has the 6.2 V8 gasser.

Are air bags my best option? I definitely want Bilstein 5100 shocks on all 4 corners. Keeping truck stock height. Also need a new steering damper, will go Bilstein as well. Will get some larger wheels/tires eventually.

From the photo (and I'm no expert!), the TT looks level enough, maybe just a tad down in front. But the TV is stooping in the rear. Perhaps one more notch up on the WDH? Shocks only help the bounce, they don't carry the load - EXCEPT - I did get a pair while traveling on my old TT, the shocks with overload springs. They go untouched until the shock is squeezed to a point, then the springs assist. Helped me out a lot! Got them at a Goodyear station on the road. You're almost there - keep tweaking it!
Also, another thing I did after my CW guy set it up initially, before gas and water were added.... I had a guy raise the WDH by one notch on the receiver, the thing with the multiple mounting holes. A 10 min job, moved the hitch up one screw hole, and we're all set!
