RE: Time for new tires already?

You get what you pay for…I would recommend the Michelin Defender LTX M/S. Recently realized I have over 60,000 miles on the tires and still have well over 50% tread. Of course, the LT version probably doesn’t carry the same treadwear warranty as the passenger version. You should check the treadwear rating of your OEM tire versus the aftermarket version. I have seen where the aftermarket version has a higher treadwear rating than the OEM tire.

RE: New Tow Vehicle brand?

Was really hoping to confirm it was NOT anyone working for our company... I cannot, in fact confirmed it IS one of our employees....embarrassing enough as that is, at least he's Canadian.... Maybe you should seek this person out and find out if he actually got his hands on one of the concept trucks, or they were such fans of it that they badged their F150 as such. The Atlas was Fords 2013 concept truck revealed at the 2013 NAIAS in Detroit. So probably not as whacky of a situation as you think. F150 Atlas

RE: Range Rover sport towing questions

Is that 550# tongue rating weight carrying or weight distribution? That listed tongue weight is 10% of the trailer unloaded weight. My tongue weights have never been that low of a percentage and actually have been closer to 15%. As you load the trailer with supplies and get to a realistic tongue weight you will be over your hitch rating. What confidence do you have in the Range Rover engineers that they didn’t cheat on the hitch factor of safety? Your vehicle obviously has the power to tow, not sure if it has the payload, capacities and wheelbase to tow something that long and heavy.

RE: Replace OEM seat base with air ride seat base on Chevy 3500

Does your truck have safety airbags in the seat? If you do, what ever conversion you do make sure it’s compatible.

RE: $1000 for a 23 mile tow?

I haven’t ever had to us the RV benefit, but when ever I call AAA they ask where I want it towed. They have referenced where they would suggest having it towed. The last time they would have taken it to my local independent shop less than 5 miles from home. Instead they towed it to my preferred dealership 25 miles away without question.

RE: Rivian vs Tundra Tow Test

The big difference, plain and simple, is that I can actually go out and BUY a Tundra. That being said, IMO, no contest who the winner is. Is the reason you can’t go buy a Rivian because you didn’t put a deposit down and aren’t in line to get one? Or are you saying that they aren’t being produced or aren’t on sale? The last time I checked, there isn’t a single OEM that runs a charity just buying parts from suppliers. We have been supplying thousands of parts per month for multiple months and production is steadily increasing.

RE: Chevy Express 3500 with 6.0

I thought GM de-tuned the 6.0 for the Express van? HP/Torque numbers are lower than what’s in the trucks? Torque in the Express appears to have been constant at 373 #-ft of torque. In 2010 and for several model years they were rated at about 324 HP. Somewhere around 2017 it appears GM figured out how to be able to tune them to 342HP.

RE: Chevy Express 3500 with 6.0

We towed a Keystone Passport 2910 GT with a 2011 Express 3500 and had five kids and two dogs at the time. We had previously towed the same trailer with a 2005 Suburban 1500 with the 5.3L, 4 speed and 3.42 axle for a short time. We replaced the 1500 with a 2004 Suburban 2500 with the 6L, 4 speed and 3.73 axle. All I have to say is the 6L/6speed/3.42 in our Express out towed the 2500 Suburban. Examples are that the Suburban couldn’t maintain speed on level ground towing in OD. It did fine in 3rd. Our Express actually would shift into 6th while towing and would maintain speed on level ground. It obviously would shift with any grade out of 6th, so I typically limited to 5th and was on my way. I don’t know where you are towing, but here in Michigan I will be honest that with any sizeable hill the van would shift from 5th to 4th. I did scale the setup and with all 7 of us, two dogs and misc stuff in the van I was 1000# under the vans GVWR. We had the 12 passenger regular wheelbase. As was mentioned, the ride and handling was drastically improved after putting Bilstein shocks on.
