Something new for the Tow Vehicle

Okay so this isn't a MOD to the 28RLS but, this is an important mod to my 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD!

My truck is up there a little ways and it's hard as heck for me and the wife to get into the back.
This is when I really miss my Avalanche and the bumper steps.

Anyway so I installed one of these Traxion 5-100 Tailgate Ladder

It was super simple to install (Other than the screws they give you SUCK). 
It works really well and makes getting in and out of the truck bed so much easier.

Extra Jack Stands to Reduce Bounce

We're going to be going camping soon and my Son, his wife and my new grandson will be joining us.
Now my wife and I are good with the little bit of bounce in the trailer when we walk around, but let me tell you, my son is a Big Guy and when he walks in my house I feel it move.

So I bought a pair of these Eaz-Lift 48860 Telescopic Jacks off Amazon.

Each can handle 6000 pounds
And they are adjustable from 16" to 30"
They work sort of like a regular jack stand in that you use the pin to get it close in height then spin the top and crank it up tight.

I tested them in the driveway last night putting them midway between the stabilizers (right in front of the wheels) to reduce the overall bounce from the suspension.
WOW what a difference it made.
