RE: Truck warranty

What does the truck having a Diesel have to do with water in the light??? May get you better info stating what brand and model the truck is. Diesel has nothing to do with anything on this thread, just that is what I bought. Do you have some issues with a diesel with a leaking headlight assembly that we should know about? Brand does not matter as I asked about warranties on trucks in general, l am not trolling trying to start the old brand war some of you so love. Excellent response! Lol

RE: 4 sec 0-60 in an EcoBoost F150

We had an F150 Ecoboost and I dearly LOVED it! We just decided to get a larger RV, so had to go the F350 diesel dually route. I still miss that truck and it was as comfortable as any vehicle I've ever ridden in, including Mom's Cadillac Deville and my Benz. My DW said the same thing when we had a loaner F150 last Nov. Think tho that had the lil Ecoboost motor. We had the 3.5L EB and it had as much torque and power we could ask for. When I ordered it, I spec'd it out. I had the Max Tow Package, but also got the HD package in a 4 X 4 Crew Cab. It had more payload than any F250 on the lot and within 100 lbs of the F350s. We had 50K on it and were just worried that it might not be in for the long haul. Someone locally bought it and we still see it towing a 30' long trailer filled with two side by side 4X4s. I saw him at Lowe's a few months ago and he said he had 125K on it now and it was still towing away. Baloney is what I'm calling on your payload comparisons. A F-250 gas version can be well into the 3k range, even nearing 4k depending on options. So your saying your F-150 was more than that?

RE: Lowering TV tire pressures

I run 80 psi all tires all the time. The reason being it's easier and more time to spot a tire going flat. I have driven many miles. Lower starting pressures builds more heat. It actually inflates the tire the longer driving. Too much heat causes blowouts. This only applies if the tire is overloaded and under pressured. If the lower pressure is adequate for the amount of weight on the tire then there's no problem. I too have a 3500 SRW Ram/Cummins and run 55-60 front year around and 75 loaded/towing and 50 non loaded on the rear. At 50 on the rear according to my TPMS even in the hottest of days here in Georgia the highest heated pressure I've ever seen is maybe 55-56 and no excessive heat on the tire

RE: Ram 2500 Diesel

thanks for all the replies. I was looking for "real world" experience. I know that the factory numbers will be overshot if I buy the camper I mentioned but is going over the numbers a reciepe for disaster? I don't want to risk life or limb and I don't want to tear something up. Do most people stay under the factory numbers? Yes. Most do stay under the manufacturer numbers. Then again, some blow them out of the water. Depends on you and what you are ok with. Power wise you will have no problem with the Cummins. But I can't say how it will handle the weight with coils as I've never had a tow vehicle with coil springs. That size rig (length,weight) I'd feel better with leafs myself. Again, it's your call and I'd do a lot of research on it. Someone here will be along shortly to tell you that a dually is a must,watch and see. Try a Ram/Cummins forum would be my advice.

RE: New Tow Vehicle

I am looking at a 2019 F-250 with the 6.7 Turbo Diesel. My question is it has 3.55 rear end. I am towing a Keystone 30RLS I don't believe I am over 10K. fully loaded. Any issues towing with this gear ratio? No offense or disrespect intended, but if Ford thought there would be an issue towing with that gear, do you think they would have put it in a diesel HD truck? That truck won't even flinch with your camper behind it! My 3500 Ram/Cummins has 3:42 and it will pull the hitch off my rig weighing in at around 11,500. Friend has the same truck you are looking at and pulls a Montana at 12,500 and smiles every time! When towing, just lock out 6th gear if its hunting any, and enjoy the ride. And when running empty (especially on the highway) enjoy the good fuel mileage why she just purrs along.

RE: Michelin LTX tire prices??

IMO broaden your options. While Michelin makes a good tire, there are just as good, if not even better options to be had for less money. Look at Toyo, Cooper, Nitto, and Sailun also. There’s a lot of money paid for the name Michelin these days, and they just do not make the product they once did to me. And yes, I’ve owned many sets from many different manufacturers.

RE: Gas engines in school buses coming back?

The gas engine is a bus would be just fine I’m sure. And at the FD where I work, we haven’t purchased a diesel ambulance since 2014. The Ford V-10’s are working like a champ so far and get the **** ran out of them. However, they are only averaging about 4.5-5.5 mpg depending on which unit you look at. They are geared very low also. That V-10 LOVES to rev!

RE: Interesting new application for 6.7 Powerstroke

Fire fighting just got easier....... :B That pumper is a real jewel. This made me LOL! Thanks! We will stick to our Cummins powered Sutphens here I believe. However, I must admit it's a nice pumper.

RE: GM Certified Pre Owned 2016

I doubt it's a lease return as they rarely lease 2500 series trucks. Maybe that's the case up north. Around here lease's on 2500 and 3500's are very common.

RE: Not the typical Gas vs Diesel, ½ ton vs HD question

You live in California so mountains will be a fact of life if you want to go anywhere. To me a diesel is worth it for the relaxed towing experience, and even when I'm just commuting in it or taking a road trip with the family I think all that torque makes for a nicer truck compared to a gas version. My truck is in my sig and I really like it, but if you're buying one of the new crop of diesels I'd recommend the Duramax to avoid the CP3 pump in the Ram and Ford - it's not worth asking for that trouble when you have a good alternative that avoids it altogether. When I bought my truck the Cummins was the only option without the CP3. Don't you mean the CP4? I noticed that too. I believe he just made a typo. And as posted above, the fish tail incident sound like a potential light tongue weight situation to me, not necessarily the truck. Two super gas options are coming soon that would be awesome for you IMO based on your uses. The Ford 7.3 and Chevy 6.6. Research them. Especially th Ford IMO.
