RE: RAM spare tire tool

I had a cable break while towing my fifth wheel, got lucky and didn’t break anything on the trailer. Inspect carefully!

RE: Looking for power?

Best in class towing? Isn’t the ford with the 7.3/4.30 rated higher than that? Or is this a half ton?

RE: 6.6 Chevy gas engine

My brother just picked up his GMC Denali 3500 SRW, CC/SB with the 6.6 gas. Traveling across parts of Eastern North Dakota, we got 14-15 mpg on flat roads empty. This truck would need quite a tail wind to hit 20 mpg. Very nice pickup though. Note that the claimed 20mpg was with the cruise set below 60mph.

RE: What is your speed uphill?

I run my 2001 up to just under 1200 on the EGT gauge and just hold it there. Last pass I was at about 40mph or so, I just got in behind another truck and went to the top and admired the new diesels as they went on by. These new trucks are just amazing!

RE: Why not diesel electric trucks?

As soon as they made one, everyone here would complain about lack of payload.

RE: Big Tires pulling Small tires.

So the tire spins 1.3 times faster but we really don't know the speed of those small tires? Can we say 1.3 times faster than the truck, or 78 mph? No, you can’t. That would be nothing more than a variation of the trick question: “Which weighs more, a pound of feathers, or a pound of lead?” The tires spin at a higher RPM, but the MPH is the exact same as the truck pulling it. :S :):) A track loader is moving 8 MPH. How fast is the pad on the ground moving? The bottom of the track isn’t moving at all relative to the ground, same with the tire on a truck, the bottom of the tire on a truck isn’t moving for the moment in time it is touching the ground. If a truck is moving 70mph, the bottom of the tire is moving 0mph, and the top of the tire is moving 140mph.

RE: McAllen, TX diesel shops & aux fuel tanks

I have an RDS gravity feed 45 gallon auxiliary tank in the bed of my truck and love it!

RE: Ram 1500 Long Tow Experience

I’d brag about 10.2mpg pulling a RV with a gas motor. That’s a good number.

RE: tuner chip

So according to that article, if you change your gears, you can’t change your computer to compensate. I’d check with someone there about changing gears and reprogramming your computer to make sure those modifications are ok. I looked at the website for the chip you mentioned, it doesn’t give me a good feeling and I wouldn’t trust it. Going from 3.73 to 4.30 will gain you about 15% torque, I think that is by far your best bet.

RE: tuner chip

If I was going that route, I would seriously consider re-gearing your truck to lower gears. Do you already have the 4.30 gears? How much gains is that tuner claiming? If they are meeting California smog requirements, I doubt it’s much.

RE: ATI gasoline aux tank test pressure

So can these tanks be plumbed directly to the vehicle’s main tank? I have a gravity flow on my diesel, but I will be going to a gas truck next and fear that ford’s 48 gallon tank won’t be quite enough.

RE: Oops

I wish my trailer brakes worked that well!

RE: Auxiliary driving lights

I would run spot and flood. I have my passenger side bulbs point slightly more to the shoulder to light up the ditch better and the driver’s side aiming straight ahead. When I installed mine I took my tools to a long flat stretch of two lane that is rarely used and set them that way. Mine are wired so that they only come on when I have the dash switch on and when I have my high beams on, that way when someone comes over a hill or around a corner, I just turn my brights off, and my auxiliary lights turn off as well.
