RE: Tuned Towing Comparison on Duramax, Cummins, Power Stroke

The one thing I love about my Super Duty is the large widow sill that you can rest your arm on along with the arm rest. This give you a high and a low location to rest your arm. I love this feature so much that when I ride in another brand truck I can't get my arm comfortable because they simply don't have enough space to rest your arm.

RE: Uconnect 8.4 default to bluetooth?

Okay Googled around and found this. 1. Sit in driver seat, doors closed, vehicle off. 2. Foot off the break, press start/stop button once to place vehicle in ACC mode. 3. Press the start/stop button twice to turn off vehicle. 4. Hold the Voice Recognition and Green Phone buttons on the steering wheel for 30 seconds, then let go. 5. Open the driver door for 30 seconds, or until the dash display cluster turns off - whichever comes first, then close the door. 6. Hold down the break pedal, and press the start/stop button to start the vehicle normally. After I did step 6, my Uconnect system quickly flashed through several screens including what looked like a dial pad and the text "enter anti-theft code" (?). It still started in FM radio, but when I pressed the Media icon, it immediately went to Bluetooth (whereas in the past, I would have to hit the down arrow then select Bluetooth). I restarted the vehicle normally again, and this time it went straight to Bluetooth. Let me know if you have any questions, or you can call Uconnect General Support here: https://www.driveuconnect.com/contact-us.html They asked for the last 8 characters of my VIN and had me verify my name, address, and phone number (which I assume they got through RAM). Edit: The second guy asked for my address and email, then asked if I wanted to add my phone number, so I guess they weren't for verification, but to add to their records. Sounds like a sobriety test

RE: Peak Blue Platinum DEF

Frankly as a retired chemist I'd be more likely to believe this if they explained what miracle additive they are using. Otherwise it sounds like marketing BS. DEF is plain and simple 35% Urea and I don't know what 'deposits they were referring to. Searching google for 'def deposits' gets zero hits. True, and from what I've read, there is no good/better/best or "premium" DEF. It's kind of like buying isopropyl alcohol at the drugstore; all brands are the same, it either meets a standard or it doesn't. That's why I buy the Walmart house brand for $7.88 for 2.5 gallons. Peak at Walmart is $11.88. Pump DEF is even cheaper but that's very inconvenient for me. You can also "exceeds standards" and report "meets standards".

2021 Chevy Steps up the Max Tow Rating

Special Chevy configuration can now tow 36,000 pounds. I got to admit I'm still not a fan of that front end. Link

RE: 2021 Ram TRX

Also the truck has full time 4 wheel drive. Not sure I care for that but it's probably because of the power.

2021 Ram TRX

Here's a little more info on the new TRX engine, intake system, and frame upgrades. Also worth mentioning Ram installed a regular gear shift over the knob, a trailer steering system and launch control. The most powerful, quickest truck on the market. Link

RE: Thanks to Colorado Springs Dodge!

Yep, should have been replaced long ago under warranty/recall.Ideally, yes. As luck would have it, it was actually less hassle getting it replaced Mon, then it would have been trying to work around our local Ram dealer's schedule (a very busy and unaccommodating service dept.). Our next closest Ram dealer is almost 100 mi. away. Happy for you it didn't leave you along the Highway in HOT weather!!! He keep landing on chambers without a round in it each time he pulled. When he did hit a chamber with a round, it was a misfire and he was not stranded in the middle of ten buck two. He should be buying lotto tickets.AGREED! Kinda like Sis in Law knew her Honda timing belt needed replacing. She was driving along Chuckanut Drive at 55 and the car just quit. I towed it to her Mechanic. He started working on it and realized there was no damage. He said the same as she should go buy a Lottery Ticket!!! The whole point of my post was to comment on Colorado Springs Dodge’s outstanding service. Again, if all Ram service departments were efficient, responsive, and customer oriented, I’d be on-board with your critique. Unfortunately, they’re not. OTRfun, Glad it worked out for the best and sharing a good dealer as they can be hard to come by. F

It is termed an interference engine. The 2.4 Ford 4 cylinder was noted to do that. Just about all modern engines are interference engines.

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

I think I'm going to run by 6.7 PSD Super Duty another couple of years and by then the new Super Duty's should be out with the new interiors like the 2021 F150. At that point it will be 10 years old and have ~250k miles. Historically I typically trade my trucks in at 7 years but since I decided to purchased a more expensive truck with my '12 my decision was to run it a bit longer. I will say that this Super Duty with the Lariat package is an absolute joy to drive and I absolutely love this truck compared to my previous truck that was an XLT. I would much prefer to pay a littler more to have a nice equipped truck and keep it longer than a stripped down truck.

RE: Fuelly mileage of the big three diesels

In my area (the truck capital) I'm starting to see more gas powered RAM HD trucks and I suspect with Ford new 7.3 gas that trend could continue. :) I call BS on that. According to Polk data we use at work to see what kind of customers in our dealership's AOR, the amount of registered HD gas trucks has not risen at any significant rate in Texas. And yes, we have two dealerships in Houston. You can call it what you want but this is what I've been noticing. Also back in March I was at a Chrysler, Ram, Jeep dealership and noticed 50% of the HD trucks on the lot where Hemi's and that's something you never seen.

RE: Fuelly mileage of the big three diesels

In my area gas powered HD trucks are relatively rare and sell for much less than the same diesel powered trucks. Of course the exception is many of the Ford diesels after the 7.3L was discontinued....:) So as has been mentioned many times, the diesel truck will net way more when it's time to sell or trade in so the difference in fuel economy is only one consideration when making the decision to buy. In my area (the truck capital) I'm starting to see more gas powered RAM HD trucks and I suspect with Ford new 7.3 gas that trend could continue. :)

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

Today's work truck grade has more standard features than those '70's trucks and a work truck grade like a Ford XL, Chevy Custom Deluxe, and Ram Tradesman model is probably in line cost wise too. Also todays truck is the family vehicle. To add injury to insult the American auto industry gave the car market to the Japanese and Koreans.

RE: Fuelly mileage of the big three diesels

But I won’t because I don’t care and I don’t bash anyone for what they drive or own. Never have. I can't say this is entirely true but it's good to see you don't subscribe to the Ram Mafia anymore! https://i.imgur.com/lZAz91Ql.jpg

RE: Spendy used tow vehicle

When my parents had their 05 Duramax truck my dad said the last fear years they owned it every once in a while someone would approach him and asked if he wanted to sell his truck. Fast forward and they now have a much nicer truck a '16 Duramax for ~ 4 years now and no one has asked if he would sell it.

RE: Spendy used tow vehicle

I think a vehicle in this good shape with a pre emissions diesel commands that price. It won't last for long!

RE: Fuelly mileage of the big three diesels

"2 brake jobs have been the repairs to date." You must never use your Exhaust Brake running BobTail. I just had the brakes serviced recently when it was in the shop for the AC work since it was already in the shop.
