Where the beer flows like wine...

Hello from 8750'. Hoping to personally stalk the forum and get some sage advice on setting up my truck for some heavy haulin. Now that SuperCruty and Rattlesnake pointed me over here I thought I should introduce myself here as well.

Got my truck a couple years ago after reading some solid testimony on here about the "bulletproofing" of the 6.0

I don't know how the forum feels about Bill Hewitt of Powerstrokehelp but I personally loved his series and laughed myself to tears during parts of it. I've put close to 35k on the truck since then and have been very happy with the results.

Going to HH for the first time this summer with a 5th wheel toy hauler of some variety (looking for 2011 and newer if you know someone) and uP + DOwn Eisenhower is as extreme as it gets.

Here is the link to the thread I threw up in Suspension:

Upgrading 4" BDS for Heavy Hauling

Looking forward to hearing your personal experiences towing heavy at altitude!

Hello and welcome to the org!

What part of Colorado are you in?

Send me a PM with your email address and I'll get you added to our roster. Feel free to add our logo to your sig.

I've towed over Eisenhower and Rabbit Ears many times. Brakes are MUCH more important than power. Going too slow is boring, but going too fast can be really exciting.

Gene, THAT ^ is the sage advice I was talking bout! Made me already re-evaluate my priorities of the build. Back to stock tire sizes (or close) for towing, and looking into the Cyro-slotted and Hawk pads I've seen people raving about.

What part of CO am I in...I'll tell you where. Someplace warm. A place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I'm talking about a little place called Aspen.

By the way, I love the title of your intro thread. I saw where the beer flows, and as the rest of the guys will tell ya, I love beer and had to see what all the talk was about.
