Hate to say it ~ but she needs what you sold me ....... Will finish putting the SMI Brake system into the Focus tomorrow along with the Battery disconnect and taillight wiring. Baseplate goes on this weekend when I have a friend coming over to help with getting the front facia off and muscleing the baseplate into position.


Not going to take it to Florida ~ the Carolinas and Florida are not known to be doubles friendly. Will pull it to test when I get back later in February if its not 12 degrees and snowing LOL

No. Most parks were booked and our days were too full to go check it out, we stayed at Durango Riverside north of Durango on 550.
Nice little park and we backed up to the creek/Animas river.
first pic is right behind coach (our rear actually hung out over the river)

And we HAD to listen to the babbling brook the whole time Nice - especially after leaving 107 degree DFW !

here's a few (bad) videos of us running up the LaPlata Canyon trails just east of Durango

The only thing missing in that video was Sasquatch stepping across that trail. I love running trails like that.

If you need a base plate for towing, I have a blue Ox that fits a Chevy for sale

The pics don't do it justice... MOST of that was first gear, BIG uphill grades up to about 10k feet or so... but the passengers were 'skeered', especially when they made me turn around and I had to two foot it to hang the front over the edge to have enough room - glad I had an auto tranny - clutch, accelerator, and brake would have been 'taxing' !

You should have just left it attached to the Chev! I'm sure the next guy will need it.
