In storage until I put my building up, I don't have power. So this will be my battery tender. Batteries these days are already trash and expensive. So hopefully it works well

the renogy is supposedly a good system but you can get 100 watts with the same controller for under 200 on ebay.

toss a cab on it and it would be about perfect for me

if you are trying to increase load and ride quality perhaps air bags?
I am no expert but i have heard good things about air bags for varying loads coupled with the newer variable rate springs.
and again i am no expert but that seems the most likely to give you all you want for your ride
perhaps someone more knowledgeable than I can either confirm or contradict this theory.

[QUOTE=john galt;16277265]

No, im refreshing the suspension. ordered a track bar/ balljoint and ordering the axle and radius arm bushings. while im at it, im replacing my front springs and rear leafs + adding F350 blocks and adding Timbrens. Airbags im sure are nice..... but its more $ than i wanna dedicate right now.

My track bar joints are shot and im tired of feeling like im trying to control a boat when driving so why not refresh the suspension while im at it.

Il prob just buy OEM 05-07 leafs + shackles i just figured if see if anyone had a "better option" I dont have a shop RN that i have time to drill holes and mountnew mounts etc LOL i need to just swap the parts i have in and out LOL

if you want to go stock i forget if it was c code or a code springs that are supposed to ride nicer.
there are a lot of good aftermarket options one off road i believe makes a leveling spring with minimal lift that might be a good fit you can check it out anyways. i have a track bar bracket and 2" blocks i probably dont need the 2" blocks were on my 350 when i got it.
and my thought on air bags was you can adjust for the weight you are towing. also pretty sure you can add them later and from what i understand they aren't that expensive.
you might be able to shop around and find a deal on something that will really work for you.
now i have gotten side tracked so many times i don't even remember what the real point i was going to make was
carry on

Would this work only the signature series Amsoil is available here;




For my daily drive we bought a Nissan Xterra 2015, an extended warranty came with it. The only way to keep the extended warranty is to have the vehicle serviced ONLY at the dealership and you must do every single service interval. They charge a ton for parts, they want $58.00 for a $17.99 filter!

That adds about another 5K to the price, but it is an option!

If you spent $700 on freakin plants, you are not frugal

Good luck and hope you enjoy.

I thought I'd remake myself once I got out, and I tried teaching elementary school for two years. I hated it. A civilian contract job opened up that is very close to what I used to do and I hopped on it. A lot of people are happy once they popped smoke, but I missed it. I was not Army, but I spent the last year assigned to an Army unit. For me it was a novelty living in a "circus" tent with hundreds of people or living in a room full of 15 bunk beds in a cabin. I can understand if that was your whole career how that could get old.
