RE: 2019 Ram 6.4 drivers

You better be looking at a Diesel if going 12-14k in the future. Holy cow! It took a whole 31 minutes to get the "better get a diesel response" when diesel wasn't even mentioned in the OP! Slow day or you guys are slipping!

RE: New 7.3 vs old V-10

Absolutely... I completely agree with Fish on this one! :B :B Me too. Other than the only comparison being they are both gas fed engines, it's otherwise apples to oranges overall. Better trans, hp and torque numbers, suspension, gearing, technology are all much improved.

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.
