Thats not a dually, its a 6x6, but the GVW may be an issue.

This morning I started the dually to move it and the marker lights on the right side weren?t working.  That drives me crazy because that?s how I can tell if it?s running after remote starting from the house.

Then remembered that I had Superbright LED markers that I never installed.

Fixed that lickety split

Pressure washed the bed of the dually this morning. Seems to have gotten most of the dirt off. Will reinstall the fifth wheel hitch and put the stock wheels and spare parts in the bed.

Gonna take it home today and get the front wheels balanced again. Those Exo Grapplers are hard as a rock and hard to keep balanced. Would
Not recommend them. They wear well but just too finicky to balance

Got the fronts balanced and made a huge difference. Used to have a vibration about 55-60. Now smooth.

Well this thread is coming to a close.

Tomorrow I deliver the dually to MrWoody?s friend south of here for MrWoody to pick up in a week or two.

Today I had it clay barred again and waxed. Carpet shampooed and inside and outside detailed. Filled it with fuel and loaded the bed with all the miscellaneous parts and pieces I had hanging around. 

I know it?s going to a good home. It served me and my family well.....sniff....sniff

That was really a nice truck. Not just a great truck because of its inherent capability, but a nice one as well. Tasteful modifications that don't stray to the extreme maintain the sophisticated "Something more than factory, stock look." It looks better than new and would make anyone proud to own it.

Now shooting hogs sounds like fun. Bet A 300 Blackout would do well.
