RE: 2023 GM HD 505hp/1085tq

There are no loads a regular license can pull that *need* 505 hp. 505 hp / 1085 lbft of torque would come in handy pulling a 20,000 lb toyhauler up a 6% grade.

RE: Spouse left behind after death at a Campsite, what to do?

I think my wife would simply tie me to the roof and carry on with her vacation.

RE: 2023 GM HD 505hp/1085tq

^^^^I think if and when Ram gets back into the competition you'll have to trade that old billy goat in for some real horsepower. Next February I will be out of warranty. If I want more power it will be easy to obtain. We just had a Kenworth deleted ….. left the power alone as it was the unreliability of the def system that was causing us grief. Another unit was a little short on getty up so we had it deleted along with a serving of 100 hp. Up here the pickups are cheaper to replace than keep which removes much of the incentive out of deleting. Looks like I’ll have to make do with 475 Hp.

^^^I wonder how long the cooling system is going to keep the sweat of those 505 ponies when they have to pull hard up a long steep grade.

RE: 2023 GM HD 505hp/1085tq

I hope the rumor proves to be, but it reminds me of when TFL was reporting ford will be first to break 1000 lbft of torque and 500 hp... Ram beat them to 1000 lb ft and now GM might beat them to 500 ponies. Click and click

RE: 2022 HD trucks delivery date

I had adaptive steering on my previous F350. For 2021 the adaptive steering was optional and I didn't think it was anything I'd miss so I ordered mine without. I really don't notice any difference from my 2017 to my 21... certainly not something I'd be willing to pay $1250 for.

RE: Ram 3500 issue

Are you sure it is coming out of 4wd? Jack up one front wheel and see if it spins freely. Should Ram front hubs free wheel when in 2wd? (ie Does Ram use a auto lock hub like Ford or a constant locked hub like GM?) Ram's 4wd system disengages the front axle completely when not in use unlike the Ford system which keeps the front axle spinning at all times, but locks the hubs when power to the wheels is needed. The Ford transfer case does not transmit power in 2wd but the hubs Auto unlock as well. So with the Ford you can manually lock the hubs but you are still in 2wd until you shift the transfer case to 4 hi or 4 low. Chevy does not have hubs that disengage … the front axle and diff rotate in 2 wheel as well as 4 wheel drive? I think Ram is like Chevy but I don’t know?

RE: 2022 HD trucks delivery date

When I ordered my 2022 they said it would be in by the end of August. Now that we are into September I called to see where my truck is and they don’t have a build date for me yet ….. so it turns out I’m going to have to do a oil change on my 2021. Make sure the dealer added your email to the order. Also, did you order with Adaptive Steering? That option is on indefinite delay. I cancelled it off of my order and finally got scheduled. No I didn't order Adaptive Steering. I don't remember exactly but I think the truck was ordered about May .... My '21 was 2 months from order to built.

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

I priced out a new motorcycle and set up the way I’d like it came to $46,000 ….. makes $85k for a loaded diesel Super Duty seem like a good deal. Yikes! A lot of money for a motorcycle! In 1985 I bought a new Honda V45 Magna. I don't remember exactly but seems to me I paid about 4500 - 4600 for it. One tenth of your price, wow. Depends how you look at it. If in '85 a Honda V45 was about 1/2 the price of a nicely equipped truck? And if now a fully loaded Indian Roadmaster is only a little over 1/2 the price of fully loaded diesel ..... the price of motorcycles is falling.

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

It would be interesting to know how many weeks income it takes of, say a school teacher, to equal the cost of a 4x4 crew cab pick up now vs in 2000. Regardless for many people the older they get the wealthier they get and the easier it is to purchase a vehicle. My first vehicle nearly emptied my piggy bank.

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

^^^^ What kind of numbers would you be looking at now if you were to trade in your truck for a 2022? (You’re probably hoping/waiting for Ram to put a ZF 8 speed behind the Cummins?) Do you still have the ‘14 or did you trade it for a ‘16? Nope, still have the 14 and it will be the truck my son drives in the coming years when he is old enough. Don't plan on getting rid of it anytime soon. Only looked at the trade in value in 2016 to compare values for the gaser versus diesel spreadsheet I had. If anything I will just get a new truck when I hand it down in about 4 years. After all, it has been paid off since 2018 and the $900 payments I used to pay have been going to growing some investments since then. And Shiner probably changes his oil and air filters and stuff, so his truck should last a long time! LOL It'll be interesting to see how long it lasts once he hands it off to a 16 year old.:B My son is very much like me. While he and I don't care about how it looks or how dirty it is, we take very good care of the mechanical portion of things. My brother and wife are the opposite. They keep their vehicles spotless, but will go way over their maintenance intervals. If my brother and I were selling our mostly identical trucks today, most people would buy my brother's due to how spotless it is not knowing that he would go thousands of miles over his oil change interval, forget to put on his air filter clamp so it was sucking in unfiltered air for 30k miles until I found it and quickly replaced it, never greases his driveshaft, never changed his diff/trans/transfer case oil, and so on. He is the reason why I don't buy used vehicles based on how "spotless" they are. I’m not saying your son will follow any specific pattern:) but my perception of things is that young men pay a lot more for insurance vs young girls because they tend to be terrible drivers. It seems as though the more the boy loves his car the more likely he is to crash it. Many of the kids I know with lifted and tuned trucks are a lot more likely to wreck their truck than the girl who fails to follow the proper maintenance schedule.

RE: Towing with a 2022 Ford F250 7.3L

^^^ The F350 SRW is about $300 more than the F250 with high capacity tow package .... Although the two trucks will be identical other than badging, the f350 will give you considerably more payload, if you are at all concerned about the number on the door sticker.

RE: Who would of guessed

Very old video, and yeah, proves friction wins tug-o-wars, that's about it. Out a 3.5hp Briggs into a loaded Cat mining truck, gear it properly, would out pull a 4400 hp GE locomotive. Friction wins tug of wars is true but there is some interesting dynamics going on there. For instance when the pick up starts rolling coal and spinning his tires faster he actually gains considerable traction because the harder the pick up pulls the more traction the Pete will gain ….in a way the pick up is pulling against himself. My guess is that if even 1000 lbs were to be placed in the bed of the pick up and 1000 lbs were placed over the tandems of the Pete, the Pete would drag the pick up all over the place. In the same way if you were to take a hose and wet the pavement I believe the pick up would be the clear winner.
