RE: Ram Factory Brake Controller

I have to admit I sure like the interior of the Ram with the 12 inch screen. Quite a few complaints about issues with the 12 inch etch a sketch on the TDR site. I have the 8.4 without the aux switches, so have many hard buttons to control things without have to concentrate on a screen and scroll around to find something. I prefer hard buttons vs touch screen bottons on a vehicle.

RE: F450 vs Ram 3500 DRW tow vehicle

If Ram would offer a F450 equivalent, you can bet your bottom dollar cummins12V98 would be all over it and would be touting all it's glory ever day on this forum. Not a chance! WHY pay more for insurance and tires? I tow more than MOST anyone on here with zero issue! 36k combined with 6k pin=GOLDEN. https://i.imgur.com/EhrI4L0l.jpg LOL... Yeah...OK... :W

The prototype TRX truck that was at the Texas state fair a couple years ago looked much better.

RE: best ever fuel mileage 2009 6.4L

When Bill throws in the towel it's time to give up and cut your losses. Fish remember when I said the 6.0 was junk and the 6.4 was expensive junk and you used to argue with me? Several others called me names like a Ford hater. Good ol days hu? LOL I don't ever recall challenging you on the 6.4. That must have been someone else. :B Oooooh no. I wish RV.net had a better search. That's ok. The 6.4 will go down as bad a GM's 5.7. LOL...Agreed

RE: best ever fuel mileage 2009 6.4L

The Dodge/Ram 6.7L Cummins from 2007.5 through 2012 has the same emission control system. The BlueTec name was dropped in 2010 when Daimler and Chrysler split. Still don't see any trucks with the Bluetec label on the tailgate. Must be a reason!

What I do remember when my cousin used to work on these 6.4 trucks he would be asked by people in town if he would recommend one and he would do his best to talk them out of it. Fast forward to today and you still see a bunch of 6.0 on the road and very few 6.4 on the road and no Bluetecs on the road today. :B

RE: Buy a 2020 Ram diesel?

The OP here. Steady down, read only the words on the page, don't plug in your own thoughts and read between the lines. I am looking for a long term relationship with a truck. I come from a mining and oilfield background so 5 years and 100k are not big intervals. It will be kept bone stock, but in case of a major failure, rod through the side, oil pump failure, whatever; what junkyard/rebuilt engines are bolt ins? I include all the electronics in the transplant. Still, what is a good Ram truck website??? Equal to the Ford Truck forums? 5 years from now there will be junkyard 2019 and 2020 engines. You’re missing the point. If you have to ask, it’s too complicated, electronically. Different components , diff IP, diff ECM TCMBCM etc. Maybe possible but you’re not going to get answers as no one is swapping out the year old engines with junkyard motors. Cumminsforum Don't worry... Stellantis will make it better! Nothing will make the CP4-2 better! I would bet that the Denso pump goes on the RAM before Ford does. Chris Cummins has a much longer relationship with Bosch than Ford does.

RE: 2021 Ford Bronco

I was excited about it until I learned it was IFS which is not ideal for the kind of off roading I do. I will stick with my JK. The Hummer H3 was another IFS with front lockers and it was even worse than the FJ. Folks seem to love the Toyota 4Runner, FJ and Tacomas just fine, not reason this can't be a performer offroad. Its less of a compromise to live with than a Solid front axle rig. H3s from 08 or 09 and up could be had with a front locker. Yep, and they too left front end parts all over the place. Just scroll through the old H3 forums and you will see countless of threads like this..... (LINK). The H3 used parts from the GM trucks parts bin which weren't designed for severe off road use.

RE: 2021 Ford Bronco

Here's some comparisons of the Bronco vs the Jeep. Also Jeep advertised hinting with adding a 392 Hemi to the engine list. Link I am thinking a very expensive option. But...they are out there testing in plain sight. No camo. So unless you are close enough to hear or are observant enough to notice the dual rear exit exhaust it's just a Wrangler. I can't help but wonder if the Jeep will have enough radiator to cool that V8.

RE: She still has it!

OP here I originally posted this in 2016 with 240,xxx miles on the truck. It's 2020 and today on a trip to Ocean Shores I I hit 350,000 miles and still going strong. In the last hundred thousand plus miles I have replaced one rear axel seal, IPR valve and one fuel injector. Everything else is still factory on the truck. Right now I'm towing about 10,000 pounds with 2400 miles this summer alone. Every time I think about a new truck I stop because this old girl is paid for and still doing the job well. Not surprised about hitting 350k miles but I am surprised you only replaced 1 injector. My 05 6.0PSD was a great truck and I do miss that turbo sound. My current Super Duty almost has 200k miles and the engine hasn't been touched. Keep on trucking and report back when you hit 450k miles.

RE: 2021 Ford Bronco

LOL Shiner... Just a reminder that I'm not your boy Ryan so I'm not going into your endless back and fourth circle jerk. We're looking for my wife's next vehicle and for now the Bronco looks like it could be a good fit for her and our needs. Also the Bronco looks like it has better leg room which is important for me but will have to verify and I would have liked to see electric seats. Then why did you quote me in the first place when all I was explaining was why this thing was not ideal for me due to IFS and why IFS is not good for the the type of off roading I do. What does you and your wife's needs/wants have to do with how I use my vehicle off road? I basically said I was excited about this thing until I found out it was IFS and then explained why IFS is not ideal for the type of off roading I do in a subsequent post. I even stated that IFS is better for high speed off roading in that post. Then you quoted me talking about how IFS is good for you and your wife(which has nothing to do with me), and you also stated that the Bronco had a long travel suspension which I refuted. Not trying to argue here, but I fail to understand what you and your wife's wants/needs has to do with me knowing that IFS is not good for the type of off roading I do. I don't know what type of off roading you do, but I'm sure you know what's best for you. As for long travel suspension this reflects stock configuration.

RE: 2021 Ford Bronco

For our off road and daily driver needs a IFS could be the ticket, but will need to test drive to confirm. I would like a soft long travel suspension which it appears how the Bronco is setup. We came close to pulling the trigger on a Jeep Wrangler but with a few things we didn't like about it, and knowing the Bronco was coming we decided to hold off. Based on what I've seen we made the right decision. The Bronco doesn't even have a mid-travel suspension let alone a long travel suspension. Heck, even the Raptor doesn't have a mid-travel suspension, but it is very close. If you are gonna use this vehicle as a daily/mall crawler that is not going to do any heavy rock crawling then IFS is the way to go. It will be noticeably smoother than a solid axle Jeep that you would have to throw a grand or so into for the same smoothness. If you do decide to take it on some serious trails, then make sure you bring along spare parts and/or upgrade to stronger materials if they have a lot of miles on them. I'm sure there's plenty of Rubicons at the malls and I'm sure this Bronco will be more than capable of handling my dirt roads and pulling my 22ft bay boat. This vehicle will be my wifes daily driver as well so no routine rock climbing here. :W I never said there wasn't Rubicons used as mall crawlers. Heck, Jeepers made up the term for other Jeepers that had bought off road rigs, but never take them off road or use them for what they were built for. Just like people who buy trucks that never haul anything, sports/muscle cars that never go to the track, or sedans that never carry more that two people. All I said was IFS is a better choice if is is going to be used as a daily/mall crawler because of its comfortable that a sold axle(in stock form). This has nothing to do with brand, and I am not sure why everything boils down to brand in these conversations. It is like you are taking me saying that IFS is not ideal for my kind of off roading as a personal assault to your preferences or how you will be using this vehicle. Is it because I pointed our a flaw for my preferences in a Ford product and you feel that you have to defend your brand? If this is the case I assure you I say the same about other IFS vehicles meant to go off road like Jeep Cherokees and Ram Rebels. Per this video the Bronco will have class leading suspension travel with 10" in the front and more than 10" in the back. So I would say this has long travel suspension IMO. Link So this is why you are taking it personal? Because I said something that didn't go along with what your brand's marketing department said? Long travel suspensions generally start around 17+ inches of travel in the front/rear and are very hard to drive on road. Mid travel is around 14-16 inches of travel in the front/rear which depends on the vehicle. In order for this Bronco to have a long travel suspension, it would have have to have a wide footprint because the control arms would have to be much longer(probably longer than what can be legally driven on road). This is why all long travel vehicles have wide and tall fenders to keep the tires from hitting them as they travel up. If the Bronco had a long travel suspension on it, it would tear those stock fenders up seeing how close they are to the tire especially on the 35 inch tire models. I also don't care too much about the stock specs of anything because I like to modify my vehicles which is why my JK Rubi has over 22" of travel with it's Metalcloak suspension that cost me around $2,600 and I was able to put it on in a day. It would cost more than three times that amount to do the same on an IFS system and would require some major modifications. All I had to do is trim my fenders a little our buy new ones for about $300-700. Here is the amount of travel that just a 2.5 inch lift can add to an solid axle for just $2,600 on a very minor obstacle (LINK). An IFS would be teeter tottering with only one tire on the ground up front on a simple obstacle like that. If you want to see what it takes to make the Raptor a mid-travel(from 13 to 16 inches) and what it does for the truck, then you can look at the parts and video in this LINK. The Bronco would have to replace its hood and fenders(like the stock Raptor has) to get the same type of travel because the longer control arms would make the tires stick out much further. On a solid axle, you don't have to widen the whole suspension in order to get more travel like you do on an IFS. LOL Shiner... Just a reminder that I'm not your boy Ryan so I'm not going into your endless back and fourth circle jerk. We're looking for my wife's next vehicle and for now the Bronco looks like it could be a good fit for her and our needs. Also the Bronco looks like it has better leg room which is important for me but will have to verify and I would have liked to see electric seats.
