I don't want to get too heavy or too light of metal.
As mentioned a couple of times in the thread, IIRC it's 3/16
Just returned from 8 days in Utah hiking Zion, Bryce, Canyonlands and Arches National Parks. The camper and tow rig worked great.
I did run it across a certified scale at a truck stop... total weight 20,200lbs!
Saw some beautiful country, and had a great time.
I'm really hoping to get the Bronco up to the Moab area next year... maybe when the Phoenix guys go. Still need to beg, borrow, or buy an open trailer, as it won't fit in the enclosed trailer. Also, I think I'm going to replace the turbo on the Dodge. It pulled fine through the trip, but it doesn't spin as freely as it should, and it appears to be the original at 230k miles. I'd like to upgrade it to lower EGTs for those long grades.
First, gotta finish the engine swap in the race car. Hopefully I can squeeze in some fab time on the Bronco.
Too many projects... not enough time or $$!
