I hear you on the trailer tags. In AZ, you could get "permanent" plates for certain trailers in certain circumstances. But up here in ND, no dice. Annual tags.

Oh I think the dent is simple enough to pound out with a dolly and a hammer. Plenty of room behind the dent for the dolly. They're pulling the bed for the repainting and the reclear coating of the...

Well I had to take an hour off work today, in the middle of the day to go down and get the appraisal done. It was the shop Progressive works with, and they quoted me a 3 day job and just north of...

On the front end tie downs, I go around the lower A-arm or the outer axle housing if it's a 4x4. On both front and rear points, make sure you're not wrapping the strap around where a brake line goes...
