    Looks great! I'm pretty heart set on finding a hallmark camper for mine, next option would be a four wheel camper. So another trip to Colorado is in my future, good campers are hard to find any closer for me.

    Next time you do a back glass, buy yourself a "cold pull knife", they are somewhere in the $10-20 range and you can pull most of the glass from the outside on these trucks in about 10 minutes.

    I actually bought one of those, but it was China Junk form Ebay. The blade wasn't hardened enough to do anything, it would just bend. Looked like a good tool. I complained and they sent me a second, and I bent the blade with my fingers and tossed it in the trash.

    Even out in Colorado, the Hallmark campers are not that easy to come by. And the older ones like mine often need some help... Mine lived outside it's whole life, so there's quite a bit of rot, even though it was in a fairly dry climate. Find one that was stored inside, and you're much better off.

    Baja was awesome! We were planning to go again this spring but bought property and we're building instead. Want to go next April?

    Haven't done much to the truck aside from a set of 255/80R17 STMaxx's and more miles. Oh, and lots of mud inside from working on our property... good thing it doesn't have carpet!!
    245k miles. Hour meter reset again. It was about 6000 the first time + about 2000 this time, so 8000 hours... Just getting broke in.

    Sorry I missed your response.

    I would love to, we'll have to see how next year looks.

    That is awesome on the mileage. I'm at 151k and it runs perfectly. I love this truck.
