RE: Towing help

What are your weights? You say 25%, but you also say -300 ( negative 300??) The real question is how does it tow? I think too many people get bogged down with weights and don’t look at the big picture.

RE: Tuner like “5 Star Tune “

Maybe you could manually downshift and just run one gear lower all the time to avoid downshifting? Sometimes running at a slightly higher or lower speed may help as well.

RE: 7.3 twin turbo Godzilla

I bet it could burn through some fuel!

RE: Lubricant for stabilizers

I use RV slide lube, I’m already under the trailer and have it with me, so might as well use it. I’ve also used grease while I was greasing my wheel bearings.

RE: Ford 2021 exhaust brake.

The exhaust brake and the options for larger fuel tanks are the only two things that make me consider a diesel over a gas engine for my next truck.

RE: 7.3 Ford

I have a 7.3 Ford, tows great, transmission just had to be rebuilt at 310,000 miles. I tow 11,000 and get 9-11 depending on wind and terrain. 2001 F-250, 6 speed standard, 3.73 rear end. Oh, you were talking about the new gas 7.3? That’ll probably be my next truck. SRW F-350 with a 4.30 rear end.

RE: First Long Road Trip

I’d just bring the tools to adjust your WDH with you and adjust on the side of the road. You can have your weights “perfect” and the trailer is all over the place, you can also have your weights way off and it pull just fine. If your driving and it doesn’t feel right, put an extra link on, or tighten your sway control a bit.

2nd gear is hardly a road block, I say drop that 5.9 into second and let er eat. Buy a new truck after prices go down. When you do just get a SRW.

RE: bad starter......

Call a mobile mechanic. They can knock this job out in no time. Like others said, if you turn your key on, you can steer the truck, just takes more effort. This would be a good thing to know in case your truck dies while moving and you have to steer your truck to the side of the road while still rolling.

RE: Benefit of extra fuel tank.

@Devo, no skin off my back, and you’re correct, no one with any sort of knowledge about thermodynamics or just good horse sense would disagree that heat rises, aerodynamics are more than partly attributable to frontal area and that the smaller, lighter of a trailer you’re pulling, generally the more economical it is on the fuel bill. But instead you basically pee’d on every RV owner with a big camper as if your (big 40’ long double and triple axle trailers, which are both sweet btw) choices are somehow morally or physically superior to everyone else’s. I find it mildly entertaining. Others probably only consider it poor behavior. The spiteful part is your weird incessant jabbing at anything Ram related because you got either a lemon of a truck or a lemon of a dealer, or both. Anyone with half a brain would have understood that from your initial postings on the issue. But somehow, you got the notion to put down anyone who owns the same brand of truck that YOU bought as well, but are now having a bad experience with it. A little nit picky but heat doesn’t rise heated air does, heat is omnidirectional and moves from a higher intensity to lower. That is what I think every time someone says “heat rises” . I normally don’t say anything because it’s usually not worth explaining.

RE: Benefit of extra fuel tank.

For me it’s not about the money, it’s just about having one less thing to worry about while traveling. I start to get real nervous when I get down to 1/4 tank, if I can avoid that feeling I’m a much happier traveler.

RE: GM Spokesperson admits energy to charge cars comes from coal

I think that in my lifetime (40 years or so) that EVs will be able to do what gas or diesel does today. I also think that many of the environmental challenges of EVs will be addressed in my lifetime as well.

RE: F 250 vs Ram 2500

I kinda think the Ford guys should buy F350s and the Ram guys should buy 3500s. I don't see the point in anybody buying a F250 or 2500 series truck. I agree 100%!!!!

RE: New Titan tank

Not to mention if my truck gets down to a quarter of a tank, I start to panic! I’ve heard the cost to fuel up argument so many times, now I just laugh inside and move on. Each mile costs the same.

RE: F350 SRW Enough Truck

Put me down for a 7.3/4.30 F350 as well! Some day I’ll get to post on here what it is like going from a diesel to a gas. Not the best comparison since my truck is old and noisy.

RE: New Titan tank

That’s one concern I have for my next truck, biggest tank I can get from Ford is 48 gallons, since I will be getting a gas truck, my options are limited on what I can do. I have 75 gallons total capacity on my current truck and that’s about right for me.

RE: Dually rental

The problem with the older diesels is that they are LOUD by today’s standards. I tow with. 2001 F250 and can’t wait to get something quieter. Well I can wait cause that’s what I’m doing.

RE: Tell me about your 2011-16 F250 6.2L

This is a good read about the trucks: I do not own one, but I have heard nothing but good about them.

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

I get about 170 miles on a tank with my Tahoe and I start hunting for fuel. I tow at 55-60 MPH That that puts me over three hours of travel. I can’t go much longer without a bathroom break and a stretch my legs break and walk around the rig and make sure everything is okay break. Keep the frontier if it meets your needs, or get a Ram with the 3.6 Pentestar. That is a bullet proof motor. Thanks, Jeremiah 55-60mph and stopping every 170 miles? That sounds like torture to me! Maybe one day I’ll slow down enough to enjoy the drive.

RE: Bed level of new trucks

I would think that with all the fuel efficiency mandates they would be lowering their trucks. I really like the looks of a 2WD long bed truck, they actually look usable, too bad you can’t get a truck with the stance of a 2WD with 4WD.
