RE: Fifth Wheel toppers

^^ Why? Noisy, water pools on them, not home slides out and get some big wind they can tear (been there done that), raining breaking down camp with leaves and needles on topper they get rolled up and will mold unless you extend later at home and more.

RE: Old truck, new look…

REALLY like the truck, not a fan of all that white tho. Maybe if they were black??? My 86 C20 2wd had white wheels and caps. I remember that exact truck heading down the highway when it was new with a 6.2 Diesel, man that was the ruck I wanted!!! I remember riding with a friend in his brand new 84 K30 SRW 4wd crew cab 6.2 going to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo and the engine threw a rod and put us on the side of the road. I remember the truck had ~800 miles on it. 6.2 not great but 6.5 really bad!!!

RE: 2024 GMC and 2023 Super Duty

Yes Fish, he had a trans on the floor. Worked fine!. But had an oil leak in gasket. Took in to fix before warranty went out. Mechanically, worked fine. Both of you are stretching the truth some. IMHO, both of you are also false in comment. Get over it. Marty I hope I am not one of "Both"

RE: 2024 GMC and 2023 Super Duty

^^^ It’s not posted as fact anywhere as far as I know….. it’s just me thinking it’s pretty tough to compete in a 500 HP/10 speed market with 420 ponies and 6 gears. "the 2023 Ram is apt to take a big hit in depreciation when the ‘24 comes out with 8 gears and 480 horsepower / 1200 lbft of torque." You will lose credibility by making these type statements. If you would have said guessing, or if, in that remark, you wouldn't be providing false info. Yes, you did clear that up, after being confronted. Jerry OUCH!!! That even hurt me Jerry!!! :B He is actually the one that said the 6 x 6 is just fine and would not make much difference with more gears. As mentioned WHY in the HE!! change when you have combo's that do the job reliably. I will repeat, I tow way more weight than most anyone here at 35k combined West Coast and have ZERO reason to want more gears or power. I have owned both trans and I love them both. The one you felt inclined to install a after market oil pan or the one on the shop floor? I'm confused... :B The 68RFE https://i.imgur.com/aE8Re2ml.jpg The almighty Aisin that doesn't break https://i.imgur.com/zuGMIpQl.jpg You must have a catalog on everyone or just me??? Both were great as I have mentioned many times. Not sure what the big deal is about adding a deeper pan???? The point of the pic was at 65k with way over 50k on the AMZ/OIL ATF the pan was near spotless towing 30k combined most of the miles. ONLY reason I removed the pan was I traded the 11 on the 15 and sold the pan. You also know the reason the AISIN was replaced it had NOTHING to do with the trans at all. It had minor weeping where the case meets so I had it repaired under warranty. The Tech is the GOD in the Valley when it comes to transmissions. He had only replaced two AISIN's under warranty up to then because of casting issues. He did the separation with the trans in place and the proper way was to remove and stand on TQ converter end. Obscure Technical Bulletin later showed this. NOT the fault of the transmission!!! So I have to ask what was the point of you posting the pics?????????

RE: 2024 GMC and 2023 Super Duty

"And noise level by running lower RPMs." What NOISE LEVELS??? Never heard the newer RAM's called noisy.

RE: Bought a second truck.

Thank you. Of course I did. Everyone does. ;) And I thought I did a short video but I guess not. :( My friend opened up his headers on his 69 SuperBee once. We went cruising the gut looking for chicks trying to be as quiet as possible. Lasted about 15 minutes before the lights came on! Good ol days.

RE: 2024 GMC and 2023 Super Duty

I priced out a new Ram dually Limited. I was considering trying a Ram out while I wait for my ‘23 Ford to come in. What ultimately lead to me sticking with what I have is fear that the 2023 Ram is apt to take a big hit in depreciation when the ‘24 comes out with 8 gears and 480 horsepower / 1200 lbft of torque. "24 comes out with 8 gears and 480 horsepower / 1200 lbft of torque" OK, where is this posted as fact?

They are both incredible. Which one did you order Fish? He is a "Closet RAM Guy" :B

RE: RV insurance claim - flood

It’s unfortunate that some don’t understand or don’t take the time to understand what they’re paying for and/or subsequently get mislead. And the insurance industry is right up there with takin your money and not giving the best value for it. Case in point recently, our insurance carrier, been good, no real issues with them, but a rate hike on something prompted me to dig into the whole policy. Hadn’t done that for about 5 years. Got another quotes for comparison and working with our current company/agent somehow our whole policy went down almost 2 grand per year! They figure at a certain year you really don't pay attention the the policy price and start bumping it beyond the normal cost increases.

RE: Bought a second truck.

Sounds good!!! Be honest did you start it before the exhaust was added to the headers??? I always did.

RE: RV insurance claim - flood

If you don't have the coverage you think you should then shame on you! You need to be VERY specific of your coverage requirements when getting a price as they will keep it as cheap as they can to get another customer. Cousin just tole me of how they just spent several hundred dollars on having a new windshield on a newer SUV installed. I said why not turn it on your comprehensive glass coverage. Blank look response! Then I told him it's cheap for $100 deductible. I them told him it only cost me $100 for a $1,500 OE RAM windshield. I'm thinking he called his agent the next day.

RE: time to replace brakes?

Throw ALL those Math problems Into the trash can and stop over thinking. IF the brakes a low, AND your taking that multi thousand mile trip ( 6,000 - 10,000 ) , just replace them and be done with it..:S piece of mind = priceless and by the way... agree with the above .080 is 80 thousands where 1/8" is .125, or 125,000.... 45,000 thicker ( .045 ) than .080 now my brain hurts Agree, but I would also check the bearings, change seals, repack and adjust.

RE: RV insurance claim - flood

If it were me I would call Allstate's claims office instead of your agent. The agent is probably right, but might not be. The agents don't have the authority or expertise to approve or deny a claim. YES, that is what I should have suggested in the first place!

RE: RV insurance claim - flood

Does not matter squat what anyone here says. You need to talk to your agent about what is and what is not covered.
