RE: Camping in an EV.... Always charging...

Why is someone else powering their vehicle differently than you wrong? And why can’t someone else call their rig a camper even if you believe it isn’t a camper? :S Aaaaa where did I ever say it was "wrong"? Go on, quote me. :S Aaaa if you want to call your dog a cat it makes no difference to me. It's still a dog though. Lets get real here. How many people on this forum camp in a canopy? Not a motorhome, not a 5th wheel, not a truck camper or a travel trailer......but a canopy? Raise your hand if you take your family on a vacation in your canopy on the back of your truck. Out of all the forums on this site there is no truck canopy forum. Maybe you can change that and petition and get a canopy forum?:R If FLT wants to show the viability of camping in an EV truck so be it. Hook it up to a 24 to 26 foot travel trailer (the gross majority of what F150 owners camp with) and have at it. To put some dumb canopy on the back of the thing and call it camping is lame. That's not what the majority of Americans do. FLT already compared the Lightning to a gas powered truck and the Lightning was an Epic Fail. If they were to pull a camper one could only imagine how long it would take to complete this video series. Bottom line the Lightning should not be marketed for towing plain and simple and is more suitable for urban daily commuting.

RE: Ford vs. Ram vs. GM Diesel HP/TQ Ratings

Yep... I may have to book a trip with Capt. Ron But but, he tows his boat to the lunch ramp with his 2001 RAM truck! That could be a life altering event for you. https://i.imgur.com/tSWRXg2l.jpg But he would know exactly how to fix it if we broke down. Would be nice having a "CLOSET CUMMINS GUY" along riding ShotGun!!! Not really... I drove our 05 5.9 Dodge truck fourth July weekend. Also based on my experience, it takes only 1 Ford to pull the boat, camper, utility trailer, etc. https://i.imgur.com/oySE0pQl.jpg

RE: Raptor R Scary Fast July 18

It’s not a concern! Mopar won’t let it stay that way very long! Does Mopar know that Dodge CEO announced that the Hellcat engine will be ending production in 2023? Yes, but there are other options coming out. Like a 500HP twin turbo straight 6. And this is the standard output engine! My money is on the Shelby GT 500 Predator V8 engine over any I6 engine.

Caught these speckled trout Saturday morning. Couldn't buy a redfish bite. https://i.imgur.com/Pb5uooGl.jpg You should get Ron to take you fishing. https://i.imgur.com/OxZlcUml.jpg https://i.imgur.com/mWCwUuil.jpg He wants to take me out later this week, he is 45-60 minutes away and wanted to leave really early in the morning. Then he offered shrimping again, but I still have some in the freezer from earlier trips. He is a master at Shrimping, crabbing and salmon fishing. Yep... I may have to book a trip with Capt. Ron

RE: Ford vs. Ram vs. GM Diesel HP/TQ Ratings

Incredible, I said if I didn't have a warranty I would not have had it fixed as it was VERY minor. But keep on making it more than it was if it makes y'all feel better. 8.5, 10 and 21# Chinooks make it worth getting up EARLY. Caught a fair amount of Salmon, where you are now , and Alaska . Also some bigger stuff Marlin , and Tuna . And to be honest I wouldn’t trade all that fishing for my summers in Montana , and a 20” Rainbow or Brown on a fly rod out of the rivers , but just maybe a couple of those kings I caught on a fly rod on Kodiak Island . Didn’t care much for the gear fishing for Salmon . Especially the snagging the Reds , foul hook them , have to throw them back , its not the fishing I like . Caught these speckled trout Saturday morning. Couldn't buy a redfish bite. https://i.imgur.com/Pb5uooGl.jpg Nice , never fished for those, or redfish . TPWD reduced the limits from 5 trout 15" minimum to 3 trout 17"-23" slot through August of next year when the limits will go back to 5 due to the fish kill from last years crazy freeze. Here's a couple of reds from my previous trip. https://i.imgur.com/6L5tqRSl.jpg

RE: Raptor R Scary Fast July 18

The RAM TRX has just been put on notice. With good power to weight ratio the Raptor R is estimated 0-60 in 4 sec and will possibly be the last Super Truck (ICE) to roam the streets and off roads. If it wasn't for the TRX this truck would have never existed. Link 1

RE: Ford vs. Ram vs. GM Diesel HP/TQ Ratings

"His Asin has been on the shop floor " You know the story and it had NOTHING to do with the AISIN. This is what people do they say partial truths to make people believe the story is one way but in fact it's another. NEVER an issue with my 68ref towing 29k combined for 65k. Only issue was taking off on grade with 3.42's. So if it was so bad I should have had an issue. Trans was near spotless when I removed the MagHyteck before trading on current 15 and upgrading to current 24k DRV. I ran the hell out of mine during the leaning process and it always had solid shifts, no flailing etc. You guys bitching about the AISIN and 68rfe sell the POS you have and buy a GM or Ford for god's same!!! I think it had everything to do with the Aisin. It was the Aisin that was removed to be worked on. Maybe the tech working on it made a bad situation worse. Bottom Line: Medium duty doesn't mean a thing when it was your Aisin transmission on the shop floor and your truck out of service!

RE: Ford vs. Ram vs. GM Diesel HP/TQ Ratings

More gears isn’t all about getting to the top of a hill (that most people will never traverse anyway) faster. It’s the driving experience. I really don’t understand why that is hard for some people to acknowledge. In addition, aside from the marketing aspect, moving to a better transmission with more gears would allow RAM to run one tranny instead of two, and one engine output level, and be competitive power wise in the 2500 again. Pretty silly for them to hold onto the current strategy. The problem is I don't think Stelantis has transmission engineers so that means Ram will again have to outsource the transmission and if that transmission is only used in Ram HD trucks it will be extremely expensive. A version of the Z 8HP works in the Demon. I’m sure with adjustments it could work in the Cummins. Or, heaven forbid, go the route that GM did with the current “Allison”. And how much inefficiency do they have with two output engines and two separate transmissions for the same truck? I don't believe that transmission is designed for a PTO provision. Good point. How would an outsourced transmission be more cost prohibitive than a outsourced engine? Or the current Aisin for that matter? RAM has no choice but to outsource the diesel engine. Remember Daimler threatening to install a Mecedes diesel under the hood of the Dodge trucks. It would have been a lot cheaper for them to do that. As for Aisin transmissions... Again, there's a reason that the majority of RAM trucks both 2500 and 3500 have the 68 transmissions in them. Cost!

RE: Ford vs. Ram vs. GM Diesel HP/TQ Ratings

I believe the Ram's exhaust brake performs a bit better than the Ford and probably the GM as well, but they're still acceptable by all means. In the area's I tow it's hard to compare exhaust brakes because they're really not needed. Maybe why my transmission has never been on the shop floor. :p

RE: Super Duty Backup Assist - Fifth Wheel

In the video they show a device that is bolted to the fifth wheel and plugs into a receptacle in the bed. My son has this setup on his 2022 Superduty , not sure if he's used it on his new fifth wheel, he will be here in Montana with us tomorrow , will have to see if he's used it . Report back if he tried it and if he like's it or not. Doesn't care for it at all, tried it once ,something about it doesn't see all the fifth wheel. Prefers just backing it like most of us do . Hey cummins2014... Thanks for the feedback

RE: Ford vs. Ram vs. GM Diesel HP/TQ Ratings

Article basically shows trucks are generally speaking putting out advertised numbers. Ford seems to have lowest or best lack of drivetrain loss. Dodge IMHO the most. GM in the middle. At the end of the day, in reality, ALL three models are great trucks, pull like no other trucks before. We as customers are winning, no matter which brand one chooses. Marty Agreed... Heck I'm still driving my '12 truck and it still puts a grin on my face.
