My primary use is long distance travel, transporting my two search dogs on paved roads. The truck does see some off road, from snow covered farm roads in the Mid-West to dessert in the South-West.
There ride is still great with the lift and eight ply tires. 4Wheel Parts did the lift install and after 2000 miles, it's been trouble free. I hardwired in a Garmin RV GPS mounted on a Built Right F150 dash mount, and use a Pro-Clip IPhone mount. Trailer towing has been trouble free, except I needed to get a hitch with a 10" drop.
The DeeZee box fits perfect between the middle seats and still allows the back seat passengers to make any climate and sound system adjustments.
I get a lot of positive comments from other Search and Rescue personnel, Law Enforcement, and as one of my younger neighbors said "Pretty fly for an old guy!". So far (25000+ miles) the only issue I have is that the Apple Car Play doesn't work every time. I found that if I drive a while stop the truck and plug it in again, it works fine.
The combination of DeWalt fan, rear window open with square hole hatch, and windows cracked with AVS Ventvisor Deflectors, keeps my rolling kennel very comfortable for the dogs. I'm ordering a second Dewalt fan, just in case.
The GSDs are Honey - Air scent wilderness, and Odin - Cadaver. FYI this is their truck, I'm just the chauffer!
Do any of you have experience or recommendations for heavy duty roof rack bars/system or a roof rack mounted awning? I'm also looking additional off road lighting options / recommendations.
We are a no-charge, all volunteer, non-profit organization. I'm looking for best bang for the buck. Thanks!
