  1. Nollie's Reggie Build

    Well, for me, my stinger CB antenna definitely has a much better SWR than my short antenna, as the ideal CB length is 102", but I was able to get my JBC800 (8" antenna) down to about a 2.0 SWR reading at 1 OR 40, and then the rest settled about 1.4-1.8 on the SWR readings. I could not bring both...

    Well...a big one turned over this weekend...just passed the 30000 mark! Still zero regrets on the truck, and extremely happy! But I believe that is now the end of the full Bumper-to-Bumper warranty! Still going strong though and can wait for another 30k to be put on it!
  5. What are you guys towing?

    Got a new trailer for the Ranger the other, and finally my own trailer! It's a 7'x16' Aluminum MMT trailer with a wood deck! Got it to tow the Jeep to trailheads and allow me to have more fun wheelin' with not having to worry about how to make it home if I break something! Trailer is nice and...
  6. What are you guys towing?

    So we have now moved all out to our new place and made a few additional trips as well! I have at least 1000 miles on this setup and have been seeing about 13-15 MPG through mixed driving conditions and weight. About 40%-50% of the timing I was towing fully loaded in the trailer (I estimate...

  8. What are you guys towing?

    I wouldn't say that I drove it enough yet to give a good idea! And really only between 45-60 MPH so far! I will update once I have driven it a bit more!
  9. What are you guys towing?

    Working on moving to our new house! Borrowed a 14'x7'x10' cargo trailer! Tandem axles with trailer brakes, so finally got to try out my Redarc TBC as well! Truck towed it great! I am very happy! Will be making a few good trips back and forth with this trailer! But should cut down on how many...

    Did some towing this weekend and pushing 26000 miles now on the truck! Towed probably 300-400 miles in the last week or so with this little 4'x6' v nose! Borrowed from the in-laws! Even fully loaded, the truck doesn't even know it's back there! Nice and smooth and great help as we are slowly...

  14. Transporting Downhill Skis, 5' Bed

    My Bars are the Large (68") bars. Most stick a bit smaller, and if you plan on doing any tight trails and harder off-roading, I would recommend a smaller size, as these do stick out a bit, and in off camber situations, you could hook something. But for those types of trails, I have a Jeep! In...
  15. What did you do to your Ranger today?

    I did install the cover myself, and it is definitely a bit of a process. It is possible to remove if absolutely needed, but I really would not recommend it on any short of regular basis. There is a good bit of alignment needed to keep the tracks even and straight to allow the cover to roll...
  16. What did you do to your Ranger today?

    I have now run this cover for almost 2 years and 25k miles, including with kayaks, skis, SUPs, etc. up on the rack and items on the bed cover (can hold 200lbs on the cover itself in the version I have) so I have definitely put it to the test. I love the convenience of opening and closing as well...
  17. What did you do to your Ranger today?

    The most popular cover to work with this rack is the Retrax Tonneau covers with the t-track side rails. This are also sold from Ford under the rebranded Embark name. I have the RetraxOne XR which is the polycarb cover version and is slightly cheaper, but still great quality. The more expensive...
