You will be missed. BTW,ds,how in the hell do you have anything to do to your TH? The damn thing is brand new!!! I give it another year before you trade it in on something yet again................ :m  If you traded in a wife everytime it wasn't perfect you'd be on what? number 15???? :m I guess that must mean you got lucky and Denise was perfect right from the beginning. You need the same luck with toyhaulers. ;) ;) ;D ;D rofl :m

so this toyhauler is brand new. i named it the cfu toyhauler., custom fixxer upper.  :nw  the roof leaked on the last dune trip which was the  1st trip. the water pumps back flow check ball is stuck partially open. filled my 100 gal fresh tanks over the course of 3 days.  the winch failed and i know why now. i also found out they lag screwed the winch to a 12" long 2x8 and lag screwed that to the floor. the lags started pulling out as i winched my rail in last time. i know this as i swapped the winch out for a 4500 lb vs the 3500 lb they "installed" . a custom installationi paid extra for to have it permanantly mounted not lag screwed! i did get a steel tool box (48lbs empty) installed on the tongue for more tongue weight. have not moved the spare tires yet for better balance. i have made several repairs that just shouln't have been. i wont bore anyone with details  kick

you may win that bet fabr  LMAO   

i like to think i got lucky with my wife. only been 20 years so the jury is still out  LMAO

well david that sucks you cannot make it either.

i have some more work to do on the truck as well. i replaced the injectors with brand new ones. thing idles far far better then it did before. also has noticeably a bit more power, who would've guessed that one when only 4 injs weren't right lol hell 2 weren't even working at idle.  so now that it is running at the power level it should've been at 5 years ago i am experiencing axle wrap. it's not horrible but now noticeable empty where it was only noticeable loaded before. i ordered some parts to reduce this effect and yes i know when one doubles the factory power level their leaf spring pack design sort of becomes obsolete.

to be honest, i expected some issues especially with brand new. i didnt expect the pile of issues that i recieved and have had with dune sport as a company.  the customer service issues should've never happened at all.   they need some quality staff members for actual qc , that would go a looooooong way to cutting wasteful mistakes. the owner micro managing all dept's needs to stop. he is the root cause of several of my issues. took a number of email and a couple heated calls but he finally admitted it. doesnt mean he cares that it happened  kick he should not be speaking with customers either imo.

But it still needs a intercooler and at least (1) O2 sensor.
