      I have one coming for my 87 K5 Blazer. Since I built up the truck with the one ton axles I have grabbed my new plate. It has been three months and waiting so far. Freaking DMV

      MOAR.

      I only bump now as apparently there are people out there who legitimately get a kick out of my videos. I think it is similar to watching a car accident..... but clicks are clicks. lol

      so, with the 100Lb struts at each corner, I was able to get the rack to lift over 370 lbs cleanly. Two adults are required to make sure it goes up great, but not completely necessary. Also the...

      well there are limitations to where I can take the trailer, but I definitely will be pushing the limits as to what I can do with it. That is the objective. That said should I damage a strut I do...

      I am not worried about it raising with the tent on it. With the Humvee tires we were able to get it up easily and I doubt the tent can be that much heavier. The trick is my wife stands on the...

      got the struts working. These will work a lot smoother when there are two people operating the pop pins but it works great now.

      - the annex becomes the area where the kids play, we change, clothes etc sit. The tent becomes the sleeping area. All the dirt the kids track...

      well as much as I like the idea of the actuators and it would be pretty cool to control them, the simplicity of the gas struts is nice. I just went out with the wifey and checked out whether we...

      I really like the idea of the linear actuators. I think that if these gas struts don't work that is the way I will go. Heck I might just do those anyway. I like the idea of them all extending or...

      You know that is the $1000 question. When I pop the pins it does start to come down. Throw one or two of my kids up there and we are in business. I was more concerned about it not raising with the...

      so the tent will fold up for travel and open for camping. The platform will be lower for travel to reduce drag and secure contents of the trailer. The roof top tent is nice as it just clamshells...
