Having 3 girls make you a softy. I do still like the classic wall tent when I go with the guys.
I only have my '01 F350 right now for a hunting rig. It's big as hell and rides like a buckboard wagon. I sure miss my '98 Chevy, sold it a couple years ago when times got tight. Hope to get another "hunting rig" again someday. We have a '72 Blazer but it's a paved road only rig. The middle daughter has a '88 Toyota 4X4, she loves that thing!
Did you install the custom rack you fabricated for the stolen one into the new one yet KIC? I built one my self this winter using pictures of yours as a guide. Works great, and now I can carry all my stuff, cooler,gas & water jugs and a spare tire & jack with ease.
Along with 2 Kolpin 6.0 gun boot transports for my rifles.
