my old man had the same wonderlodge...he actually put a body lift on it so he could stuff a bigger motor in it...does yours have the the music layer on the dash...i remember everytime as a kid he would leave or arrive somewhere he would play music through the loud horn. great memories...

one time at lone rock, lake powell he put it in a 4 wheel slide trying to get it down to the beach through the soft sand...that was a wild ride...:D
This rig is a 1975 it has the tiny dash and the radio is overhead. Every place we go there is always people wanting to check it out, it has a lot of character. This rig needs to be repowered bad it has a non turbo Cat with a whopping 160 hp and smokes like a freight train.

I'm probably forgetting something somewhere but that isn't what this forum is about..

Now to the good stuff

Boat: 2010 Schiada 24' Mini offshore
Power: Boostpower marine 900sci

The boat belongs to my father who is on this forum as "slippery". He currently tows it with a white 2015 Chevrolet 3500 with the 6.6 duramax. The 1/2 ton actually tows it just fine despite being unusually heavy for a 24' boat. I gave the boat a bath one day and couldn't resist from taking a few pictures, hope you enjoy.

Here's the new rig. 2014 Tundra Crewmax and 2001 Ultra 247xs. I upgraded from an Excursion V10 to the Tundra. I have to say it...the Tundra pulls better. It's the new technology 6 speed trans vs the old 4 speed in the Excursion.

The boat has been through hell and back....... If it could talk it would be begging to be put out of its misery.

I have always had 4wd and would never own a 2wd truck. The peace of mind knowing I can turn a knob and be out of "oh-shit ville" is priceless. And yes, I've had to use it a few times on wet ramps, especially if the trailer tires drop off the end of the ramp.

I have a 4 and a 2 diesel. I use the one for boat/work and the 4wd for the trailer. I didn't want the extra maintenance of the 4 and insurance. But to do it again I would have got 4wd. Even though I already have one
