    https://youtu.be/kAXXc1HPUZk I thought this was a cool idea... and a cheap and easy way to have an ice shelter. A friend of mine has been talking about building one for next year, and I am going to recommend this to him.

    Park at the train tracks, almost immediately after the first gentle turn you will come to a fork. Its the left trail and there is a sign that says "river". Also you will be able to tell that one road is ploughed and the one to the river is not. I went there pretty blind and found it no problem. Caught lots too

    To check your final ratio, you can drive with a hand held gps in your truck. Read your speedo, and gps at 100 km/hr on your truck. Look at the GPS. Take the difference as a percentage and multiply that by your 3.92 ratio. That will be your final ratio.

    When pulling a trailer, you may want to make sure of a couple things. Check the owners manual for your truck to see the max towing weight, and tongue weight. The towing capacity is greatly affected by axle ratio (and changing to larger tires really reduces your towing capacity because it makes your overall gearing equate to a lower gear ratio thus less pulling power). A common differential ratio is 3.55:1, but for pulling trailers, a 3.73:1 or a 4.11:1 are much better choices, and some trucks have a 3.43 or a 3.23 which gives you greater fuel mileage but end up with poor pulling capacity. When you are pulling a trailer, a rule of thumb is tongue weight is about 10% of total trailer weight. So if your trailer is 5000 lbs, you should have 500 lbs on the hitch. Make sure your truck can handle this. You can buy a 1/2 ton with towing capacity of 10,000 lbs and one that looks exactly the same that can only pull 5000 lbs. This is set by GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating). I have a 1/2 ton dodge with a 5.7 and a GVWR of 7700 lbs. My buddies looks exactly the same as mine, same tires, same engine, different trans. and his GVWR is only 6900 lbs. It is worth doing a little research into your truck (your dealer can help a lot if you are not sure) before you buy a trailer. Once you know your limits, you can comfortably buy a trailer that will not tax your truck. it would be a shame to get a nice trailer only to find that your truck will not safely pull it. Just because someone says they pull their 28 ft trailer with a 1/2 ton, that means nothing....what is the GVWR and what is the towing capacity. Also you may want to consider extra transmission cooling.
