RE: What a deal!---no thanks

Were any of them 6.0s? No and there was no 7.3's on the list either.

RE: What a deal!---no thanks

Yeah it's crazy... I had my truck at the Ford shop to get the alternator replaced about 3 weeks ago and of all people the service writer asked me if I wanted to sell my truck before committing to the repair. I jokingly told him I had over 200k miles thinking that would deter him and he said no problem and they wanted it. I also noticed in the service dept. they had a white board with a list of vehicles the year and models they would pay cash for.

RE: Diesel vs gas......................

And yet ANOTHER one today...a shutdown due to a DEF system problem, AFTER burning a bunch of fuel going into re-gen mode for an hour. That makes three trucks, three different engine manufacturers (Cummins L9, Detroit Diesel DD13, Volvo D13), three trucks out of service for emission problems. Not surprised... In addition I have a BIL that is a Case IH mechanic and the number one problem he works on is the emissions systems.

RE: Ram 2500 CTD and GM 2500 Dmax up the Ike.

Pretty much a nonevent for both. I wish they would start towing 11-14k 5th wheels up the Ike in these tests. The wind resistance on those would make these trucks struggle a lot more. Ram 2500 HD Cummins vs Chevy Silverado HD Duramax vs Ike 11K trailer Up the Hill GM: 8:00 (perfect run) Ram: 8:00 (perfect run) Brake Applications GM: 1 Ram: 0 Fuel Mileage(computer) GM: 8.1 mpg Ram: 8.9 mpg Fuel Mileage(calculated) GM: 8.2 mpg Ram: 9.0 mpg Fuel economy difference is pretty significant. Flat land towing fuel economy would be interesting. I suspect the HO cummins fuel economy in the 3500 is probably more on par with the Duramax.

RE: New Truck!!

I guess we should all drive Fiat trucks with a B&W hitch... Oui... Oui...

RE: New Truck!!

I have never had a B&W, but I hear good things about them. I had a Reese 16k slider before I bought my 2016 F-350 with the pucks. It was new in 1998 and a good hitch. The guy I sold it to is still using it. I don't know why you would say the CURT is not user friendly. I love the fact that I can pull the head off it in seconds and lift it in and out of the truck in two pieces. I also love the color coding that shows if the hitch is locked. Actually, there is nothing about it that I don't like. So you like the fact it's made in China? As I mentioned it can be a PITA to unhitch. Oh and then there is the fact the Curt can cause chucking with the pivot point being several inches below the kingpin connection. Head easy to remove, I don't have experience with that but I pull two pins and simply lift my head off. Compare the pivot points and you will understand the chucking issue. https://i.imgur.com/3tk7A8zl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/2DsKmorl.jpg LOL... And cummins12V98 is worried about a hitch made in China but never reports his Ram is made in Mexico by a French owned company.

RE: When to change oil

This thread gets funnier by the day! It really does... :B

RE: When to change oil

No drama... No special tools... No risk of contaminating intake system...You can simply prefill if you choose to...no spills...no frills... no surprises...no debates on which method to access the filter is easier I would hope it would be easier based on how often you have to change your oil. Back when I was putting on 30k miles a year, the 10k oil change interval on the Ford would add another 7 oil changes over the course of 200k miles versus the 15k interval on mine. And I'll take that any day of the week. I actually enjoy draining the sump and replenishing with new oil.

Nice you have at least ONE easily accessible item. At least you don't have to open the hood to fill the DEF tank.

RE: Ford F150 vs Ram 1500 Hybrids Ike Gauntlet Test

My take away from this test. The F150 towed the load the easiest which should translate to a more enjoyable towing experience. The Ram made the best fuel economy while towing The squat and brake applications are essentially the same for both trucks Both trucks did not benefit from the electric power feature in the up hill towing process, but may have helped with grade braking.

RE: GRRR Ford Dealer - 2022 SD

Could be even more worse... Your truck is built and sitting on a lot somewhere in Kentucky waiting for a computer chip.

RE: Disappointing article- GM updates!

I would get excited if GM produced a good looking truck for once since the '87 model year. Full concurrence! https://i.imgur.com/iEBiwhIl.jpg Doing my best to make it new again. But it still won't be much of a tow rig compared to any new truck unless the 454 leaves for a 12V or a LS and it sprouts another 2-3 forward gears! https://i.imgur.com/M11z25ll.jpg That's what I'm talking about. I had a 1987 two tone (And GM what happened to the two tone paint option?) with gray top and bottom and black in the middle with the TBI 350. Purchased a 1992 Chevy truck with the bubble aero style and the looks never grew on me... Hated it although the truck was very reliable. "Like a Rock" :B

RE: 7.3 twin turbo Godzilla

^ I believe you found the proverbial needle in the haystack.... How many "other" trucks have besides the Lightning/Harley, which were limited runs of only what 4 years? Cool trucks, but do you have any supposition why they went away, same as the TRD blower upgrade?SVT vehicles at that time were limited run production vehicles. It's just the way it is. But, the supercharger technology is proven, which is why it's still used on many modern vehicles. The Ford GT sold at that time was supercharged. It was dry sump 4 valve engine but was still a just 5.4 block. Doesn't matter though. I answered the question. A supercharger is form of forced induction and if I was going to install a turbo or supercharger, I'd install a supercharger. Am I stating that supercharging is better? No. Forced induction is forced induction although one uses wasted energy and he other uses energy. But, there's no lag on the supercharger, and it sounds better. In short, it's just my preference. The 7.3 fords with superchargers are 1,000 hp engines although that power level is a bit crazy for daily driving. 600 hp is easy though. And, it's fun. Turbos on typical street cars are boring. On the other hand, turbos on race prepped cars, or exotics are fun. A friend took me for a ride in his McLaren recently which has a twin turbo v6, and as expected, the performance was very close to a race car. Some comments... The 7.3 with a cam swap is a easy 600 HP engine. With a 3 liter whipple supercharger it's a ~1,400 HP engine. Also let's not forget you can go to your Ram dealer and purchase a TRX with a supercharged engine today, and Ford will be releasing the Raptor R with a supercharged engine next year although these trucks are not designed with towing as a high priority.

RE: Disappointing article- GM updates!

Some may not like the looks of the GM HD trucks. However the new GM HD trucks are a sales success. The looks have not stopped buyers from buying them. Goes to show you GM still has loyal customers.

RE: Ford F150 vs Ram 1500 Hybrids Ike Gauntlet Test

No evaluation of engine braking going down the grade which is even more important than MPG going up the grade. They did evaluate engine braking going down the grade: Ram - 9 brake applications F150 - 10 brake applications

RE: Disappointing article- GM updates!

Pretty vague news. More than likely Ford will be updating their engines in the upcoming years as will Ram. Now if I was a GM guy and if they had said the 2022 GM HD will get an all new 500 hp, 1100 lbft Duramax I might get excited. I would get excited if GM produced a good looking truck for once since the '87 model year.

RE: Ford Superduty Death Wobble fix

Super Duty's have lockers on the front hubs that allow you to disconnect the front axles You mean the knobs on the outside hub of the front axles, on new models they only engage the electronic locker they do not manually lock the axle from what I've been told. Is there some other way to lock the axles? Yes the knobs on the outside hub on the front axles and yes the old and new Super Duty's lockers operate the same. Your Super Duty lockers have two modes: Automatic and Manual on the hubs. To put into Automatic mode you turn the knob on the lockers clockwise until the arrow lines up to Automatic. You want to operate the truck with the lockers in Automatic mode. To put into Manual mode you turn the knob counter clockwise until the arrow lines up with Manual. Manual mode is a back up mode if the automatic mode fails to engage the front lockers (i.e. vacuum leak). When in Automatic mode the lockers are disengaged until you turn the knob on the dash to 4Hi or 4Low. When this knob is in 2 Wheel drive mode the U-Joints and the front axle do not spin when the truck is moving which is the beauty of having front axle lockers. When in Manual mode the lockers are engaged and the U-Joints and the front axle spin when the truck is moving. Because of this you typically don't want to operate in manual mode. All Super Duty's including the newest ones have the same front lockers and the mode of operation is the same.
