@Lee Is that an LBZ? Definitely a sharp truck, very clean too. That soft top looks awesome.

It is actually a lq4 truck with a few mods. Thanks it is a fairly clean, unmolested truck I picked up a few months ago. Soft topper is for sale, would look good on yours !

That a gas truck or an L5P? Curious to know how it did on gas/fuel.

Diesel.
Got a calculated 16.6 going out there with the empty trailer running an honest at least 5mph over the speed limit including running 80 when speed limit changed to 75 in Texas.
Averaged 14.x coming back loaded running the speed limits. Probably would have been slightly better without stopping all the time like we did and hitting rain starting in OK and off and on all the way home. I was pleased with the mpg especially the way I drive.

A set of headers, a Trailblazer SS intake manifold, and a 92mm throttle body will wake those up a lot! I'd be all about that soft topper if it wasn't for my gooseneck trailer and the toolbox in the bed of the truck!

@Silverado_Express That's not too shabby! I'm sure it could be even better once they get tuning out for those.

Well hell...while I'm here...there's a couple from earlier today. I was dragging the box blade around and knocking the high spots down behind my house.

My only complaint is how low the jack feet hang down. It sucks...a lot.

It squats the same amount whether the trailer is empty or loaded. The almost 300k rear leaf springs could use a hand from some air bags one of these days. It's really not squatted THAT much though...something like an inch and a half.

For now, I dropped the neck one hole and I'll see how that does. Thus far, the trailer has been level when loaded. The jacks really do just hang down extremely low. I could have easily moved them up another 2-3" if it were me, but that's not how they build them for some reason.

Picked these up for a buddy at work. Dropping the neck to the next hole did the trick and I like how it pulls better. I think the adjustments are 2" apart. This was my first chance to use my new B&W hitch too!

The jack on my 20ft 15k hangs down almost as low. Not sure why Kaufman does it that way.

The jacks on my old gooseneck hung down low too. I drug it threw some big ditches and never drug them

It's MUCH better now that I dropped the neck and got the front of the trailer a hair higher. There were some railroad crossings that I'd drag if I wasn't careful before and I can sail right on across them now.

Well I finally found a decent deal on a 6.7 that wasn’t ragged out.

Did great towing this little load today.

Picked up a parts jeep and some one tons.

My truck, not my trailer. I hope to never own a short bed truck again. Had to fab a 12" offset hitch so I could turn more than 25 degrees...
