How does it pull? Looks weird with that fifth wheel way back there. I guess the Roxor balances it out when comes to towing.

Pulls fine. Have gone across country several times without issues. The truck is a 5500 and hardly feels the weight. I figure it only has about 7000 on the rear axle and is rated at 18500 so it just smooths out the ride.

I can move the plate forward if not loaded.

I love the set up but not enough room for snacks in a single cab for me. My back seat looks like a convince store on cross country drives.

Since we’re posting up unusal tow rigs here’s mine circa early 2000’s. Had to tow the Jeep back for a new set of gears Had it regeared and the rear started whining on my way to work. Ring gear was pitted and the paint burnt off the diff cover. Gears were warrantied and second set was good to go. So I did the only thing I knew to do. Load it on my truck and haul it back home. Don’t want to do that again at todays diesel prices.

Will do when I get there. I sent you a pm awhile back regarding hitting some trails together.

That is an impressive set up, that truck is doing some serious work. I live in Utah and can not wait to get my Roxor down there also. Have fun and be save!

My best bet will be lock out hubs, a draw bar and flat towing at 55MPH I do belive. My 5th wheel is about 42'. I'd sure love to make a week trip some time. 1st choice would be Moab, 2nd would probably be some where on the East coast or PA somewhere.

Gonna trim the bumper and those tube extensions that stick plastic the frame. Box in the bumper and probably trim the front fenders in a week or so. Was gonna start today, but it's 29, the wind wind is blowing at about 25mph and I'm not as tough as I used to be LOL.
