Op,

Yes, can't emphasize enough, that the shorter the trailer is the HARDER it actually is to back up. Short trailers change direction really fast, and can be a real bugger to back straight....

Overfilled shouldn't cause the pan gasket to leak. Are you sure it's leaking from the pan gasket seal, and not somewhere else? Overfilling can cause the front/rear seals to leak.

How much did you...

My sticker says 75 front, 80 rear. I run mine at 65 all the way around if I'm not loaded or towing. This keeps the TPMS sensors from tripping.

I fail to see how this is in any way a problem.

I would just wait until you get it apart and can measure your cylinder taper. If you have blowby and 200K miles, I don't think you're going to have to worry about finding .010" over rings. Hopefully...

I'm not sure on that older model, but on my hitch, the torque for the draw down bolt is 60 lbs. Not 40 lbs.

Did you torque the draw down bolt?

I can understand how it can seem intimidating at first, since you haven't done this kind of thing before.

Honestly, 6% is really nothing to worry about. I seriously doubt you will have to drop...

If one of your first questions that comes to your mind when looking at trucks like this is, "What kind of mileage..." Then this probably isn't your truck.

If you drive it like a great grampa, you...

I replaced my original set of BFG A/T KO's at 46k miles. I was going to wait until fall to replace them, but I had a belt let go and start to separate on one of my tires. Still had ~5/32" left on...

I don't know of anywhere I've ever camped that dumping grey water is "allowed". If you are caught, you will be fined. That's BLM, National Forest, state or county land. If you're caught, you're not...
