RE: Dealers lots are filling up

:)There are a few advantages to being old. Seriously, what happened to 36 months and buying within our means? 36 month terms made more sense when vehicles were $20,000 and mostly worn out at 100,000 miles. Considering prices are now 3x - 5x that, and vehicles easily go well beyond 200,000 miles, longer terms make sense. Especially when interest rates are low (and 5% is still very low historically speaking).

RE: SoCal to Denver in December?

The main potential problems on that route after Albuquerque would be I25 over Raton, and then between Monument and Castle Rock. While snow could be a issue, more often than not, the roads will be clear and dry. If there is a snowstorm, wait a day or two and you can be on your way.

RE: Help needed. moving a 5th wheel with badly cracked frame

I lost a wheel assembly on my 5er many years ago. I called around and found a tow service that had a semi and a lowboy trailer they used to move the trailer (and truck) to the nearest repair facility (which was about 60 miles away).

RE: All 2024 GM HDS get the 10 speed Allison.

What difference does it make if the GM tranny is made by Allison or licensed from them? I have never heard anything negative about it’s performance. I can’t say the same about the two antiquated transmissions in the RAM HDs……

RE: 2023 Ford 40k towing, 500hp, 1200tq

While I agree with the last sentence, I feel as we approach semi-trailer weights, more weight on the driver is needed for traction. At 10% (4k lbs) pin weight, starting on a steep wet hill may be an issue. At 20% / 8k lbs, it'll be much better. A single axle tractor towing a 40k trailer (Pepsi trailer, etc.) would have close to 20k on the drive axle. When bragging about maximum tow capacities, manufacturers are NOT concerned in the least about "real world conditions." All they care is if the truck can move it on a flat dry road. Pretty sure they all follow SAE J2807 towing protocol for ratings….

RE: Dealers lots are filling up

Maybe it’s a regional thing, but our local auto dealerships certainly are still very short of inventory. And I’ll call BS on the 2500 gasser comment. I’ve seen reports in the past from RAM that an astronomical % of their sales were Cummins. And you can see it driving around too. Regardless of brand, if it’s a heavy duty it almost always has a diesel in it. There was a time when almost all Ram HD trucks were cummins powered, but in the last few years I've seen an increasing trend of Ram trucks with the Hemi badge on the truck and there's no denying that and now I see several every day. I spoke with the guy who was driving this cab and chassis truck about his hemi powered truck. He said that his company was transitioning to hemi's. You can call BS but we now know Cummins is coming out with gas engines and it must be for a reason. https://i.imgur.com/HVMhgP8l.jpg His statement wasn't that there are more gasser HDs sold today than in the past. I wouldn't argue that. His statement was that gassers outsell diesel in 2500's "by a long shot". You are going to claim that as well?

RE: 2023 Ram Reveal

Does it come with the ZF8 speed Grit has been promising? You must be referring to someone else? It’s 2022 now, almost 2023 and I don’t recall posting anything promising for a couple years now. Or did you mean “hoping” for, not promising? I've actually been hoping you were right.

RE: Ram 1500 owners…Hemi & 3.92s?

I’ve been on the waiting list for recall on the cam phasers for over a year. Add that to being without the Expedition for 8 1/2 weeks this summer due to no parts to rebuild an axle that failed at 30,000 miles, I’ll take my “chances” with MOPAR problems any day.

RE: 2023 Ford 40k towing, 500hp, 1200tq

Impressive numbers. I bet it won’t be long before you see a bump in published numbers by GM and RAM. I’d like a report from someone comparing the standard output vs Hugh output. I wonder if you can tell the difference by the seat of your pants?

RE: Ordering a ‘23 Powerstroke

^^^It seems to me both you guys should be driving GMCs ….. are the HD GMs not made in the USA? I'm pretty sure all GM HD's are "Made in the USA" which is why I would consider purchasing one. https://i.imgur.com/p33KvKYl.gif

width=640 EV conversion would be cool too. A couple similar trucks crossed the auction block at Barrett Jackson last year. I really like that body style, and if I could afford one, I’d love to have one in my garage. But I would want mine with a CTD.

RE: 6.7L Cummins VS 6.7L Cummins HO

My 2012 now has a little over 100,000 miles on it. It’s always been an extra vehicle, and I’d say over 80% of those miles are towing something. Knock on wood, it has been mostly troublefree. I’m not in love with the 68RFE, I’d much rather have a proper 8 or 10 speed transmission, but I also don’t think it’s nearly as bad as some here make it out to be. Congrats on the new truck. I hope you don’t have to wait too long to get it.

RE: Ordering a ‘23 Powerstroke

The last Ike test pull with 30k lbs had the Ram with zero brake applications, the Ford 5 brake applications and the GM had 9 brake applications. We know the Ford yielded the best fuel economy and IMO that's the best attribute with todays diesel prices. Having said that I would take the best fuel economy with the best towing performance with 5 brake applications all day long. BTW I tow in flat land so exhaust braking performance for me is not a high priority. I tow Eisenhower a half dozen (maybe more) times a year. I don’t understand people getting hung up on the brake applications. In all the times I’ve towed it, I’ve never thought to myself “wow, that’s too many brake applications”. Even when towing with the EcoBoost, which does great going up, but has minimal engine braking, I’ve never felt unsafe. And as far as choosing “best towing performance” what does that even mean? I’d bet that you can’t tell a difference in towing with any of the Big 3 by the seat of your pants - you would have to do some sort of timing to know any difference. I’d agree that MPG would be a good way to differentiate, but again, I doubt there is a significant difference there either. Buy the one you like. No need to make feeble excuses to defend how you choose to spend your own money.

RE: RV Cell booster

If I were spending the money again, and needed to have service. I'd just pay for Starlink. But Starlink is just "internet". It doesn't boost a cell signal, which is what it seems like the OP is seeking to do. Every phone I am aware of allows WiFi calling, so Starlink will give better phone service than any of the boosters.

RE: GM vs Ford tow off. Who will win on the Ike?

What gets me is why people get their undies in such a tight knot over trivial stuff like a few miles an hour going up a hill a lot will either avoid or never see. It's like sports, why people pay so much money to see games. Games were invented during the Roman times to keep the minds of the peasants from thinking how bad the times were becoming while the aristocrats were dining on fine foods and booze. As long as your tow vehicle gets you there and back, why add the ego factor just to try and outdo the Jones and Smiths. Lol. Did you even watch the video? Because that isn’t what this is about…..

RE: RV Cell booster

I bought the WeBoost RV last year, and I'm not impressed. If I were spending the money again, and needed to have service. I'd just pay for Starlink. Our ownership group bought it for the houseboat, and it works awesome. WAY better than WeBoost.

RE: 2023 Ram Reveal

So why would a Ford guy care about a Cummins gas engine in a RAM truck I can't imagine he would ever buy? Because I'm interested how Cummins performs with gasoline and assuming it will be turbo charged. We know the EB burns fuel like crazy when towing and wouldn't handle HD work and it's probably safe to say Stelantis' new 3.0 Turbo gas engine will perform the same which would be unacceptable in a HD application. We also know a hybrid would probably be unacceptable in a HD application as well. So what's next? Cummins turbo charged gas engine? Why would a turbo charged 6.7 burn less fuel than a 3.0 or 3.5? I’m pretty sure that is exactly why we haven’t seen Ford do it in a 5.0. I don’t think that turbo charging gassers is the answer to the needs of a HD engine. Speculation has the 6.7 gas will have a turbo since Cummins says it will have diesel like performance. Also just looked it up and Cummins will release this engine in 2024 so it will be a while. Probably just in time for the Hemi's demise. Speculation huh? So just like when you were sure a few years ago the new Powerstroke would have 500 HP? Or when the lady at the Cummins factory whispered in a members ear about a brand new emissions system that was eminent? Or a new 8/10 speed that someone else knew was being tested and sure to be launched? How much have each of them been worth?
