RE: The Big Boys have Just Arrived

I actually really like the King Ranch grille; I think it's a great improvement over previous models. I'm hoping that view of under the hood of the 6.7L doesn't give me nightmares tonight though......:B Seriously, it is a beautiful truck. I'm really looking forward to seeing what the 7.3L will do. Everything on it looks really good and it should be a great, reliable workhorse just like the 6.2L has been. I'm betting it will sound mighty good pulling the Ike! :C So, is there any way to determine if a truck has the 6.2L or 7.3L without looking under the hood? I couldn't see any badges on it indicating it was a 7.3L. I had to chuckle a bit seeing under the hood of the 7.3L, though; a few features reminded me of the 5.3L in my 2001 Yukon! :B There's no question the 7.3 has some Chevy LS DNA. As for exterior engine labels I don't see one for the 7.3

RE: The Big Boys have Just Arrived

Don't like the new grille of the King Ranch. The grille on the 7.3L looks much better. Calm down Cummins12V98. He has every right to be excited. They are new versions of his favorite brand and he is excited just how you would be if it were a Ram. I have to say I am tired of people trying to say what I am feeling and thinking. I certainly don’t need anyone telling me to “CALM DOWN” I simply said “OK” Don't sweat it cummins. He's just using you to make a point. It's all good and I knew he would be jumping in. :W

RE: MOTOR OIL ?

You can mix synthetic oil with conventional. (See Synthetic Blend oil below). Blended oil is marketed as Synthetic Blend which is both synthetic and conventional base oils mixed together, but there's no requirement for how much synthetic is used. High Mileage oils typically have more seal conditioning additives to help prolong the life of the seals. I prefer not to use these oils unless you stick with them for the life of the engine.

RE: Have our trucks got too much power yet?

Too much power I'm sure the turbos are still good. :E The driver's shorts, not so much.... LMAO... I didn't think about that one. :B

RE: Do you have a bed liner?

Back to the OPs question following a good but typical sidetrack discussion. He said he will be using the truck bed very little/lightly. Not worth spending the $500+ to get it lined for that type of use. Certainly not right away. Nice shiny truck bed will likely still be a nice shiny truck bed years from now based on how he is going to use the truck. Now many new tucks come sprayed from the factory or at the dealer level or its thrown in for "free". If that's the case, great, if not I'd save my money and decide if it's needed next year or 5 years from now. Plus being in WI, the inside of the truck bed will be way done on the list of areas and parts that will rust out eventually. Having read through all of the thoughts and input, this is where I am leaning. A spray-in seems like overkill. Once I learned that they have to scuff up the paint to apply it, why would I pay for them to ruin my bed just to add protection to the bed? If I used it more often for heavier use, it would be different, but I just don't see it doing much more than hauling branches to the compost site, wood from Home Depot, etc... DW wants a bed cover as well so, at the moment, I'm leaning toward a mat to cover the floor. If/when the sides get scuffed up to a point I'd be concerned, I could always have a spray-in added then. You can also buy a tailgate mat and just insert it under the bed mat. If and when you need tailgate protection, simply pull out the tailgate mat from under the bed mat and you have instant tailgate protection.

RE: Goodbye DPF and soot?

Good stuff... There was one diesel manufacturer (I think Honda) that designed a diesel engine that didn't require a DPF but the technology wouldn't work for a HD diesel engine. I know Ford did a lot of engineering work to reduce soot (50% reduction) when designing the 6.7, but 50% soot production is still too much.

RE: Have our trucks got too much power yet?

While I like 500 crank hp in stock form on a diesel truck, I don't like what they will have to do to get it there to keep emissions in check. That means pushing fuel systems to their limits and adding more unreliable emissions equipment. I am more of a fan of adding reliable power after it rolls off the assembly line. It would be nice if they added the ability to change power levels on the fly like a tuner does. When you are not towing, it is safe to run higher powered tunes and switch to lower power tunes depending on load and temps. Although, most trucks(both gas and diesel) already do this without a switch and most people don't know it. And you have engines with the CP4.2 pump producing 400hp and less.

RE: '83 Toyota pickup start trouble in cold, wet weather

Make sure your carb priming pump actually works. You can't assume anything on a vehicle this old.

RE: 2017 or newer F-450 issues

It's called cp4 bypass kit or disaster prevention kit. Several mfgs now. It doesn't make the pump last longer, but rather keeps the commonly failed parts from going downstream to the injectors. My disaster prevention kit consists of avoiding a CP4 powered truck. :B I paid too much of my hard earned cash trying to avoid a disaster on my 6.0L PSD and I refuse to do it again with a newer PSD. LOL... I suppose that includes avoiding a disaster with the new Ram cummins with the CP4.2 as well. Yes, sir! If Ford switched to the Desmo pump like GM and RAM still had the CP4-2, that would give new meaning to bombing(AKA as power enhancements) a Cummins. :W :W :W Here's a new bomb... https://i.imgur.com/Tlu4QkVl.jpg

RE: Do you have a bed liner?

Uncle and Aunt just purchased a new '19 F150 recently and drove it over on Thanksgiving. I couldn't help notice it had a after market sprayed in bed liner that was already showing signs of fading. I'm sure the truck sat on the dealer lot for a while but to have a new 2019 truck with a fading bed liner is unacceptable. Fade now or later ,they all fade a bit, never seen one that didn't lose a little color, but it is the inside of the bed ,and there to protect . There is a product that will bring the color back if interested. I use a Mothers product (cant think of the exact name right now) that brings the color back on trim pieces, works awesome. I am sure it would do the same for a bed liner. Mothers Back to Black...

RE: Buying a used diesel

A lot of these trucks would fill the crankcase with diesel from the regen process First time I've heard of that problem. I've had my 2009 for 10 years and have frequented a lot of Duramax forums. Mine doesn't get much use as a daily driver, hence the reason it only has about 63,000 miles in it. I'll take a PRE-DEF truck over a newer own with a CP4, which is a ticking time bomb. Yes it was a common problem hence the reason for GM adding the 9th injector which resolved this issue. There was a lot of discussions about peoples trucks "making oil". The problem was more significant for owners who drove their trucks a lot in town and the trucks were constantly regenning. It was an issue for the 6.7 cummins and the 6.4PSD as well.

RE: Adding air bags: can that increase payload capacity?

I spend way more time in my truck than our camper, therefore my priority was picking a truck that met my needs as a first priority, and then picked a camper that complied to my trucks specs as a second priority.

RE: Do you have a bed liner?

I like my bright red truck RED, even the bed for the most part. I picked up a proper fitting rubber bed mat. I don't haul dirt or sand but if I need to, I'll temporarily line it with a plastic tarp. You should pull it out once a month or so and clean underneath it. I do have an easily removed 4 fold tonneau cover to keep items from blowing out and mostly dry. The couple other trucks I've had, had bare beds and got looking like hard working trucks fast ;( After the new one's paint gets abused, I'll Rhino line it. I guy at work has a red Dodge Ram 2500 long bed truck and he had the bed sprayed with a red colored liner. The trucks red paint looks fantastic but the red bed liner now looks terrible.
