  1. http://www.berkley-fishing.com/berkley-tools-and-equipment-rod-management-berkley-fishingear/berkley-twist-lock-horizontal-rod-rack/1285941.html#sz=16&start=17 these are the ones I have used
  2. Berkley makes a nice ceiling mount one that has cams on one end so your tips don't fall out of them when traveling I have them in my topper too
  3. From what I've read regular drill 1/2" chuck brushless is best and at least 4.0 amp batteries and low speed
  4. Do you have any information on your roof interested in how u did it
  5. What amp battery of the dewalt were u using also was the drill brushless or regular I have 1.5-5amp batteries but I have the first generation of the drill non brushless
  6. Anyone use other drills other than the Milwaukee
  7. Looks awesome I'd be interested to see what yours VS LipRipperGuy will end up on finished weight. Similar builds but still apples and oranges I like the awning too!
  8. I would suggest at least a 500 machine not saying the others can't do it but the 500+ machine will do it better generally a wheel house has a fair amount of tongue weight so either a solid axle or some suspension blocks will help out if you don't use a dolly or ski unit all makes are good but sometimes a manufacturer can have some problems, bigger tires adds stress to axles but will help with clearance and the aftermarket tires are heavier which gives u a stronger tire and sidewall for towing some factory's are subject to a max weight for the import process so tires are a way to save weight I.E. Yamaha Suzuki Honda there machines are generally bulletproof but there are a lot of Polaris and Arctic Cats out there too best thing is to sit on a few and see which one feels the best for you I don't think u can really go wrong with any of them
  9. Yes I have had grizzly and suzukis with now issues but the cat I'm looking at is just set up better for ice fishing I'm not trail riding it
  10. neither is Yamaha
  11. Gonna take a look at a couple 2012 /2014 700 EPS TRV any pros or cons for this machine want it for ice fishing mostly
  12. Scheels SM lithiums are reconditioned if it matters
  13. The Towing capacity will be determined on the rear end in the truck 3.73 will have the highest tow rating (worst milage) in that truck but they also have 3.55 and 3.21or3.31 I believe which will get better day to day milage but less tow capacity
  14. I think you could get by with 3/16 stringers especially if using 3 skis my guestion is how are you attaching hdpe screws rivets won't they eventually just shear off most of the aluminum houses I see are less than 1/8" material for there structure also the units I see with three skids generally are just short ones under the V not sure a third is totally nessacery look at most skid houses even 12' width they have just 2 just my .02 I think you could get by with 3/16 stringers especially if using 3 skis my guestion is how are you attaching hdpe screws rivets won't they eventually just shear off most of the aluminum houses I see are less than 1/8" material for there structure also the units I see with three skids generally are just short ones under the V not sure a third is totally nessacery look at most skid houses even 12' width they have just 2 just my .02
  15. Looking good, Whats the hole in the siding for under the window??
