RE: Ford Super Duty 6.2 Super Ike Gauntlet Pull

And now your so anti diesel Why don't you point out where I made the anti-diesel comment. In fact, why don't you point out anytime I made an anti-diesel comment. Since you can't, all I did was point out the financial ignorance of the statement. Nothing more. The obvious escapes you. Did you go to the the AOC or Bye-don school of finance? LOL.

RE: Ford Super Duty 6.2 Super Ike Gauntlet Pull

Well yes the upfront cost is more, but worth more at trade in or selling. LOL. This is no different than the woman who claims "it was on sale and we saved a lot of money" after spending thousands on more shoes and clothes, to be put in a full closet of nothing to wear.

RE: Ram 3500 issue

...There is after market locking hub upgrades for a Ram. The upgrade is buying a Ford. Plus, you get a working heater and AC at no extra cost. LOL. I got lucky I got working hubs , heater ,and AC on my Ram That doesn't mean much - you got lucky and never required a repair. Ram is the only manufacture we have ever owned that won't honor a warranty. From numerous threads I've read, I'm sure they'd put a spot weld on the AC and heater if a dodge knuckle dragger said it would fix the problem. Apparently, a spot weld was the common factory fix for almost anything that broke on the older dodges.

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

Don't worry Sleepy J. is going to solve your price of your new trucks just like he has fixed everything else to date. LOL. He'll shut the down the factories and make sure the union leaders are paid off. BTW, he's probably the same guy who dreams up the JDEdwards awards for the best trucks.

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

Vehicles with major electrical issues sometimes have a short and catch fire….;) And that's why I'm never going to buy a Ram again, or recommend that anyone buy one. They are overpriced pieces of Bye-don dung.

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

Could've bought one of these. https://www.autoblog.com/2021/06/14/ford-f-series-super-duty-recall-wheels/ https://www.worktruckonline.com/10147426/ford-recalls-f-350-super-duty-trucks-for-axle-concerns Big deal. If the SRW 7.3 gas Ford I end up with still has the problem, I'm fairly certain that Ford will either fix it before delivery or I could refuse it until it's fixed. So, dream up stupid bye-don conclusions all you want. That's better than the Ram record of two appointments for a emissions update (recall), and three appointments to address a safety recall (bed step). Every car I have ever owned, rented and test drove has had a functioning radio, heater and AC. Ram couldn't fix a 2019 Laramie's problems while under warranty. LOL.

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

August of 2005 I bought my F150 4x4 Lariat with every option available and paid $36k, financed by Ford's no interest loan. Today it has 77,500 miles. Drove to South Central Oregon a few weeks ago and it averaged 18.5 MPG; around town 13.5 MPG. When towing TT, it blesses me with 9-10 MPG, even more if I didn't drive 60-65 MPH. My brother in law just paid $75k for his new "used" F250. WTF I say.... In 2006, I bought a used 2005 Ford F350 Dually V10 from a Ford dealer. It had a little over 20,000 miles. It came with a factory extended 4 year, 75,000 mile warranty, which gave me 4 years of warranty to almost 100,000 miles. It cost $20,000 out the door, including tax and license. 20 years later, it has only been at Ford once for a repair to check on an ABS light which they fixed under warranty (loose connector). It now has 146,000 and everything works fine. Even the radio, heater and AC work. In 2019, I ordered and bought a Ram 3500 Dually HO and it cost much more than the Ford, and at the time I didn't care. Since then, It had three recalls, plus was in the shop numerous times for radio, AC, Heater, clunks, and transmission issues, etc. Ram couldn't fix the radio, heater, AC or clunks even though TSBs exist. Even though the title of the thread is "The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension! ", in my opinion, "The incompetence of Ram and their dealerships s beyond comprehension."

RE: Air Filters For Your Trucks

I said "FleetGuard oil filters are not made in USA any longer so that is another reason I switched" Ram trucks are made in Mexico. LOL. Yet, Cummins12V98 hasn't switched. enlighten us I'm just pointing out that the bully is two faced. If made is the USA was a big deal to him, he'd dump "el velocidad de Mexico y FCA" and not drive a truck.

RE: Need advise from the Ram Owners

Except that I never complained about the engine, the CP4 or having emissions problems. LOL. Give yourself some time . :B LOL. Won't happen. It's parked. Based on comments by others in this thread, it's likely that it'll be the next owner's problem. And, I got my Ford X-Plan PIN number and got pricing on the 2022. Just debating on a couple options before I place my order. It may be the next owners problem, and it may not. Lets hope that 2022 Ford is better. I was surprised at the Turbo problems these new 6.7 powerstrokes are having. . My brand loyal friend that's drank more blue koolaid then most, had his 6.7 Powerstroke break a crankshaft totally ruined the motor. Turned right around ,and bought another new Ford truck :) Pay your money ,take your chances . Bummer for your friend. I won't have the same problem though. I'm ordering it with the 7.3 gas engine. Also, functioning AC and heater comes standard on the Ford.

RE: Need advise from the Ram Owners

I'm with Dodge Guy on this. I also have extensive background with CDJR(F) dealerships. The newer Cummins isn't the reliability issue, it's all the emission garbage he mentioned. The warranty will cover the cost of repairs but when you are stranded on I10 in the middle of nowhere TX in 100 degree heat with high humidity 2000 miles from where you need to be it doesn't much matter does it? And that's before you find out the part is on backorder with no ETA. That's why I drive old Ram diesels. I didn't look for a 06 or early 07 because of the TIPM issues. My 05 will last until I'm not towing anymore. I should have kept my first year 24V with the Banks kit. The 75 decibels in the cab under load was the reason I sold it. If that is your opinion tHat doesn't speak well for Ram in general. You are giving validity to Devo's claim that Ram's are junk. I have a 2019 Duramax with 70K on it. No issues so far, certainly never been stranded. Is Ram building such a poor product that the mechanics don't recommend them? One of the other big issues is the actuators on these newer Cummins. Very common issue, found myself 700 miles from home fifth wheel in tow with a bad actuator. Not exactly stranded , managed to limp it into a dealership . Basically stranded for a few days waiting on the part , and repair . I find it amusing that others have had engine and emissions problems, and I haven't. LOL.

RE: Need advise from the Ram Owners

In comparison to the new gas trucks, the new diesels are costly to maintain. All you need to do is compare the cost of oil changes, filters and fuel filters of a diesel to the cost of a gas truck. It doesn't matter if you do it yourself of pay someone to do the maintenance. Maintenance on a new diesel costs more than the maintenance on a gas truck. That's what you own if you spend the extra money on the diesel.

RE: Need advise from the Ram Owners

I can agree that now is not the gratest time to buy a vehicle. Nevertheless the OP does not need to settle for a 20 year old truck. Especially with the idea he is about to retire. His 2002 does not compare to a modern diesel truck. If the OP want to treat himself to a few amenities and adancements why not go for it. Life too short to be stuck in 2002. You can't take the $$$ with you. I'm all for saving but some just like the idea of money they prefer to settle and make do than spend, even when they can afford to spend. This is good advice. The only item that needs more discussion is timing of the purchase and the funds you use for the purchase. Right not is not a good time, nor is it a good time to use your own capital. But, it's also becoming a good time to negotiate a price on a truck that you can order. I can order a truck and pay a little over invoice. Will I have to wait? Yes. But I have time, the money, and the credit. Would I use my money? No. Why should I tie up my capital when I can get a low cost loan. Use the bank's capital. This is the same advice I gave my mother-in-law. She can afford a new, high model of almost any car or SUV. So, we are looking at many. It makes sense for her to buy either new or 1 year old certified, with a long warranty. But, the prices of the used aren't worth it. She has time and doesn't need a new car right now. So it's easy to walk away from bad deals. We have also been able to sell vehicles at good prices and set the cash aside. Regarding the diesel vs gas, I recently made a post on another forum regarding this exact topic. The OP question was "why would you chose a gas over diesel?" My answer was simple: Other than the throttle lag on the diesel, which is very annoying to me, the only reason to choose the gas engine over the diesel is cost. I can afford the added cost of the diesel and the financial breakeven is 6-7 years. But, do I want to spend about $10k more for something that isn't driven much, and when I tow only a few times a year? There are some downsides to the gas, or upsides to the new 1000+ ft-lb diesels: 1. You can accelerate up almost any hill pulling heavy loads. 2. You have an exhaust brake. For less money, I can put disk brakes on all my trailers and reduce the braking issue. But, I won't be able to hold 70-75 mph going up steep grades, or accelerate to pass when a slow driver gets in the way. I haven't placed the order yet but I'm leaning towards the gas. Plus, it'll be something I can supercharge someday. So for the OP, consider it as if this is the last time you'll buy a new truck. Drive both. Look at the costs and decide if the added cost is worth it. If you have the time, wait and hold out for a good deal. If you order something, plan on waiting. Don't lock it in with a deposit you don't want to lose. When you get it, enjoy it.

RE: Cripple creek/Pikes Peak

Even though this reply is late, it might help others if they do a search on Cripple Creek. We stayed in a small private campground outside of Divide CO with RV parking a few years back. It's called Golden Bell and was beautiful and centrally located. Driving down the hill to Colorado Springs wasn't a big deal. Also, we were close to Cripple Creek and other hiking spots. We were in town for a family wedding - bride and groom were finishing up at the Academy. The first few days we were there, we were alone other than the 4 couples that were camp hosts. Later in the week, others showed up but it was never crowded. It was also on 300+ acres so we had plenty of places to hike. We enjoyed it so much, it was worthwhile to give the camp a donation. I have many other photos but here are a few: http://www.spikeengineering.com/F350/IMG_5283.jpg width=900 http://www.spikeengineering.com/F350/IMG_5261.jpg width=900 http://www.spikeengineering.com/F350/IMG_5259.jpg width=900 http://www.spikeengineering.com/F350/IMG_5243.jpg width=900

RE: Battery Replacement?

OP, as you see by the responses... You’ve asked a crystal ball question that is frankly pretty silly. ... Given you have a high $ truck that is a garage queen, I’ll presume you’re an older person. ... In other words, Grit Dog thinks you're old, he has an issue with you owning an expensive truck that's a garage queen, and he thinks your question was stupid to ask. His words were "frankly pretty silly." Typical of Grit dog. It appears that he doesn't like older people, especially when they ask questions that he doesn't like. And it's obvious from this and many other posts that he doesn't like people who can afford expensive trucks. Furthermore, it really rubs him the wrong way if you can garage the truck. I've only had batteries go bad at the worst time, primarily because there's never a good time. They aren't expensive and not difficult to replace, if you want to do it yourself. Also, if you have AAA, their prices to replace batteries are very reasonable. So if you have AAA, it's not much of a gamble unless you end up in a situation that's time sensitive. Also, if you have a shop that you take it to for regular maintenance, the next time it's there, ask them to check the battery.

RE: Why do I keep blowing out tires on my truck?

Devo if you really want to get rid of that pOs RAM now is the time to do so. Friends just bought a 19 Laramie with 12k long bed with a Companion hitch in the bed and it's a certified RAM and gets the 5/100 changed to 7/100 drivetrain. They paid 70k for it and that was a decent deal. Thank you for memorializing your poor reading and comprehension skills. LOL. I won't call you stupid though. I wouldn't want to insult stupid people.
