I would hope, but I'm not convinced, the designers use consumer input when designing floorplans. I think designers should be forced to live in a mockup of their plans before they're sent to...

Without researching it, my recollection is to remove the negative cable, but I don't know if it really makes a difference.

OP asked about a short bed. He may or may not need a slider depending on his FW nose cap. I didn't think I needed one until I did. I made a tight turn that included a rise in the pavement, the FW...

Yes, you're correct WRT to car/trailer comparisons. OTOH, if a tire mfgr. (Sailun, for example) provides an inflation chart showing a range of 80 to 110psi depending on the carried load for its ST...

80a is not too much. It was recommended in the Lippert bulletin, and I've not heard even one complaint or warning that the circuit burned up.

I upgraded to Sailuns from Ranier (already had 110psi wheels), but I have a much heavier FW than you. If you have 6000lb axles with 80psi wheels, you can continue to use E-rated tires, but try to...

I don't think you are over-analyzing at all. I am maxed out with a SRW 2005 F350, and if I was going to upgrade to a new truck today, I'd absolutely go with a DRW, preferably Ford, but I wouldn't...

And if you do have a bit of a ragged cut, just hand sand with a sanding block. I think 120 should do it.

Simpletire.com usually has the best prices if you can't find Sailuns locally. They also partner with local installers and can deliver the tires to them instead of you.
