Timbren DR2500D Rear Springs Height Adjust

 

 

Back in June I installed these Timbren DR2500D auxiliary rear springs on my Hallmark flatbed camper outfit, and they have been working well for my application in conjunction with TufTruck heavy-duty rear coils.

I’ve tinkered with the ride height, both up and down 1-inch a couple times, including last week when I lowered it an inch again so the truck sits level instead of slightly high in the rear. The last two slides show the before and after ride height difference. Pretty obvious and quite level again now.

Timbren has a similar but different spring kit, the DRTT3500E, that also fits my application, stay tuned, as I’m going to give those a try soon.

Tire Puncture Plug Repair Overview

Tire puncture repair overview while traveling and attending the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

I carry the tools, know how, and plugged the tire after the show in the convention center parking lot before a dinner meeting on Wednesday evening. Thanks to Extreme Outback Products (Ultimate Puncture Repair Kit and ExtremeAire Magnum 12V Portable Compressor), Wagan Tech (Brite-Nite Wayfinder LED Light), and Hallmark Campers (bright, side eyebrow lights), and the mild weather for making it an easy job.

Initially I thought the puncture was a rock from the rough road I traveled to my camp between days of the show. However, it was an inch-long, 1/4″ bolt that I probably picked up on Highway 95 heading to camp after the first day of the SEMA Show. I don’t blame Cooper Tires for the puncture. Some tires are more rugged than others, but road hazards are real, and all tires are just balloons that can be punctured.
