Dropped my 5th wheel on the bed :mad: all things considered, it could have been much worse. Still getting used to my new air ride hitch

Diy.... Think i have about 90 bucks in it. I could do it for a few less now. Order a 4 inch pipe from ebay a 4 inch silicone sleeve i ordered new clamps but the old ones can be used. Then a 6637 and the prefilter. I had to cut both sides of the pipe
I couldnt find the pipe anywhere. I see it now. Did you use the intercooler pipe?


I got to remember to switch my tailgates next time mom and dad take my truck pulling the camper! Makes me nervous! haha

Then if you search 6637 you can get a filter and find the prefilter.
I used clamps from ebay but the stock ones will work. I also noticed dryer vent clamps are cheaper at a home improvement store.

Now if I could lay off the gun habit, I could add a lil more juice to the trucks :D

Tried to pull out from under my old 5er with the tailgate up on my old super duty.
Ouch, luckily I had the 5th wheel tailgate on, so rather than crushing the bedsides, it just pushed them out, pulled them back it with a ratchet strap, now i have to figure out how to keep them from springing back out.

Juiced Coupe, where are you in NC? There is a guy over in Denton that had some OBS parts listed a while back on Clist. He may have a tailgate for you.

Pull them in further that straight so when you undo the strap they spring back straight

Is your filter clamped down at all or just sitting there?

Kris I'm kinda suprised you've never pulled that crunched fender off and half a$$ pounded the cave in out.
