Also, does anyone know how the cab clearance will be without a slider? The Cameo has a 5th airborne and I have no problems due to the turret setup. Any information would be appreciated by this newbie RW owner, THANKS.
To all the guys who have a DRW "YES" I do agrees a DRW is the best but due to my parking and lifestyle at present I could not go to a DRW. So i have a Duramax SRW 350 with airbags--on board compressor and air tank so I can adjust the pressure any time I want. Also Goodyear has a Kevlar tires that by going one size larger it has about a 200lb more carry weight per tire. Also I have the lippert pin box with the shock that I upgraded to a double shock. From there Titan disc brakes with the Lippert air bag suspension. The only difference between the 250 and the 350 is I have more leafs.
With yours being 250 it has about a 600 lb lighter tab than mine.
I have clocked 2 trips to Florida and back to Canada and multiple short trips.(say 10k miles) My redwood dealer uses the same truck as mine to deliver Redwoods and does not have a slider where I do. I have never felt any danger when towing.
If I was you I would put on the airbags and tires.
Yes would it have been cheaper to buy a DRW instead of all my upgrades probably yes but it was not in the cards.
