After posting about my truck crane install in the HFT thread .

Figured I better brag about my 5th wheel rear stabilizer build.

Real pain in the foot to get bolted up but made a big difference.

Corvair content...apparently PhilSide2 is good for something! thumbs up

Nice fab work!


I also have a Grand Design 5th wheel. It usually is the only break from working on cars.

Ours is a 2016 Momentum 350M...how about yours.

All Grand Design units are top drawer coaches.

I ended up buying the one my wife wanted. cool smiley

Lets hope Winnebago doesn't screw it up.

Real glad mine is a pre-merger product.

My truck has 820 foot pounds stock from Ford.

Tom's is better...late Cummins 12v's are monsters.

I have compound turbo's can get 60psi of boost, could you imagine a spyder with 60 psi? eye popping smiley

This puts out 1200 foot pounds if needed. I have upgraded the whole truck to handle the power, 2013 6 speed with steel girdle around it so it doesn't flex. Suspension, rear end etc.

And they had no computer to mess things up!

I kinda figured that TorqueFlite was gone.

My Dad put 310K on an 02 Dodge with ISB and TF.

Changed fluid using Chrysler ATF every 25K miles.

Guy that bought it was happy put another 300K on it.

Been driving my dad's '04 Cummins about a year now.
Over 377K on her.
90% of those were pulling 40'Alfas.
Just took a week off and ran down to Portland.
She pulled my trailer down and back without blinking an eye.
