    What size? I remember dad buying military surplus tires for the power wagon, utterly useless on hard/frozen ground but dig like crazy in the mud. Seems like he went through a few before getting ones he was satisfied with but they kept on sending them. Sidewalls stiffer than wedding day prick. 

    No military surplus tires. TSL Super Swampers. Had to stick with a narrow tire to fit down the corn and bean rows still. Couldn't go much taller than stock for tire clearance.

  2. In the wind crank up the gas a little. Piece scrap plywood for a windblock helps a bunch. Rust and paint i just hit with the cordless grinder quick.

    i think if you had over 400 lbs hanging off your belt buckle you would fall flat on your face too.  weights go on the rear . if needed.

    All those tractors with loaders will meet the same fate? Pretty sure it has more to do with age and usage buddy....

    Makes sense on the one ton...

    But would when i was looking at new trucks the bed delete only saved 400 dollars....and you lost the spare....

    Could you get a bed and sell as a new take off but brand new pristine beds are not cheap.  

    Just throwing out ideas...

    Cab and chassis has a slightly longer frame. Depending on what kind of body/equipment is going on that could make a difference.

    On my 18 Ram 1t dually CC i would have to cut the frame and move the fuel tank to put a box on. 53 gallon fuel tank where the spare would normally hang. With a dually you already have 2 spare tires on the back axle. Single one out if you need a steer tire in a pinch.

    Thanks for fact checking this. I stand corrected. At least they aren't made over seas (yet still close) and have a life time warranty.

    Quick internet search found this. "Typically between 1-3% of the raw material to make wood pellets is made up of a binder when making wood pellets."

    Quick internet search says smoker pellets use food grade soy oil for a binder. Heating pellets use other products for a binder. I don't think I will lose sleep over the pellets.

    I have had a Green Mountain Grill for several years, 9-10 I believe.  I've had really good luck with it.  Mine sits out side, with a cover, year around.  So some of the none stainless parts are starting to get a little rusty, especially the legs.  I've been kicking around the idea of getting a new one but this still works so haven't done that yet.  I don't use it as much as I used to but have been very happy with the GMG brand.

    I have a friend who has a Green Mountain. He likes it so far. My brother just bought a Rectec? Neither have had theirs for long so cant say how they are long term.

    Trager pellet grills work really well. Some are even WiFi connected. Set them and go mow your lawn. You can adjust them from mower seat if necessary. They have small ones and large ones and everything in between.

    Do you have one? Have you had it a long time? I know the name.  Have heard good and bad about them.  Looking for real world experience. I will be buying a larger model probably for larger get togethers.
