RE: 2012 F-150 tow rating

Really, the best solution is to buy the trailer you like best and try pulling it with the 150, if your truck isn’t enough get a SRW 350. Towing will be easy again. Then, since you have a big truck, get a bigger trailer....

RE: Should I get a new Tow Vehicle or a Bigger Gas Tank?

Now the wait for a review after the first tow....

RE: Those that have tuned or programmed

Appreciate you guys turning my thread into your own personal sh!t show. No kidding!

RE: Those that have tuned or programmed

My tuner doesn’t save me much time on a 5 hour drive, it may save a down shift (standard transmission) but I like to tinker with things, so I enjoy seeing what the truck will do.

RE: Those that have tuned or programmed

I have a hydra tuner on mine which has 3 different tow tunes depending on the weight. I always use a tow tune. Tow tunes are made to keep your EGTs in check, a performance or eco tune may not do that.

RE: Towing Safety Tech

We have adaptive cruise in our expedition, no way does it follow far enough back to be towing a trailer. On it’s furthest setting it is closer to the person in front of me than I care to be. I’m in the keep it simple and pay attention camp. I drive, my wife navigates.

RE: Time to retire the 7.3 OBS?

I had to tow my truck to the shop on my last vacation, bearing failure damaged axle housing $3,800 repair to a truck I paid $8,000 for (2001 7.3) I wanted a new truck bad for a while, but I’m over that now and back to saving my pennies for a house with a shop. Any truck you get no matter how new or expensive can leave you stranded. If you want a new truck get one, but know that the cheapest route is to probably just keep yours going.

RE: Michelin Defender LTX Discontinued ??

I wish I would have bought some for my last set. I got BF Goodrich Commercial tires, too noisy for my taste.

Almost found a truck

I’m not really looking for a truck, but I was driving by the ford dealership and noticed a gas truck, so I pulled in to check it out. Long bed, check; crew cab, check; cloth seats, check; vinyl floors, check; 7.3, check; 4.30 check; F350..... nope. If it was a 350, I would have really been impressed, but for some reason it’s a 250. Oh well, guess I’ll keep driving my old truck.

RE: Unlikeliest of engine swaps!!

I admire anyone that takes on and completes a project like that.

RE: Spendy used tow vehicle

If you have a wreck or major mechanical repair and fix it yourself, it doesn’t show up on carfax either. The last car I sold had quite a bit of front end damage when I hit a pig, I fixed it myself and it wasn’t on car fax. The car I have now has obviously had the rear bumper replaced (doesn’t quite match) and it had a clear car fax, most people would never notice the replaced bumper, but I’m the sunlight almost everyone I show can see it. I wouldn’t pay for or trust a car fax report, I trust my own senses much better.

RE: New and confused

You really should do something more substantial than a suburban. Check out a ram 3500 single rear wheel with the mega cab. The cab will help with the rear facing seats.

RE: GM 6.6 gas

The 4 overdrive gears may not be useful for towing, but the first 6 gears sure are nice to have.

RE: Pre 2008 Ford Super Duty

I guess I need to look into this for my truck. My tuner has a no-start setting, which I use, but the read out on the dash says “ns” so that is kind of easy to figure out.

RE: Avoiding AFS/VVT issues in next truck

When I towed with a 5.3 Chevy with a 4 speed, I sure wished there was at least one gear between 2nd and 3rd.

RE: Tailgate

You can probably find a matching one to yours for sale in the local area. Put an add on Facebook stating what color you are looking for. Offer $500, they may just get stupid and try to sell your own tailgate back to you.

RE: 2000 F350 7.3 diesel mileage

Solo I’m getting 17 mixed city and highway, mostly highway. Really can’t complain too much, well made trucks.

RE: 2000 F350 7.3 diesel mileage

2001 7.3 6 speed 3.73 rear pulling a 32’ fifth wheel at 70mph I get about 9.5 mpg. I would save some fuel by slowing down some, but I have a hard time forcing myself to do that. These 4 lane highways just seem to go on forever. 305,000 miles on my truck so far.

RE: Advance on Travel Trailer

There is not enough length difference in those two to matter at all when backing. I can’t comment on if your suv will be ok towing it or not, but soon enough you will get some advice on that.
