RE: Ford has released their 2021 towing guide

What does this mean?!?! In the tow guide right under the 150s ratings... Maximum payload and towing capabilities are for properly equipped vehicles with required equipment and a 150-lb. driver and passengerand vary based on cargo, vehicle configuration, accessories, option content and number of passengers. See label on door jamb for carrying capacity of a specific vehicle. Horsepower, torque, payload and towing are independent attributes and may not be achieved simultaneously. For additional information, see your Ford Dealer. Does this mean 300lbs is kept off that tire and payload rating sticker for 2021?!?!

RE: Honda 2200i or Honda 2200i Companion?

I'd not get the companion right now as the regular 2200 is $100 off at the moment everywhere for the next few days....so save that $100 now and the companion is giving you nothing more than the other now as you will need an adapter for 30a or 50a....as mentioned above the companion is not a straight shore cord plug and play a 30amp twist lock adapter is still needed.

RE: Trailer legs

Seen and read many comments on this or a similar product years ago...95% of the comments were that it is almost impossible to get all 4 or 6 of them in a perfect position to raise the trailer. Secondly a good chance of bending an axle if one flips out on you or slides. Third they are plastic and how strong are they really? So many posts lately about anderson levelers and their type breaking in half used on 10k rigs when rated for 30k....Seems the marketing of them is to save your tires from premature rot....well tires are alot cheaper and easier to deal with than a bent axle or two...

RE: Wanting to upgrade truck tires. Need advice.

I just put a set of the Cooper AT3 XLT's on mine the same size and they are load range E...they were $810 for the set installed and have a $70 rebate but I think that ends very soon...have a 60k warranty, quiet as can be, and have the snowflake symbol on them also, and look pretty dang cool too! Oh and made in the USA Wow where did you get that price? That's a great price. How did those affect you mpg? They look like they are about 10 pounds heavier each than my current ones. I really like those but seems like overkill for my little half ton haha. But they may help with the towing feel with my TT connected. My local pennziol tire and lube..they always have the best price around here I paid 828 installed as I have the receipt right here in front of me as I just uploaded it for the $60 rebate from Cooper

RE: GM trucks outsell Ford first quarter !

Yeah same around here GM was basically giving the trucks away up to 12k off and 0% for 84 months... Your bias is showing. GM was not doing 12k cash and 0% for 84. Additionally, you had to have near perfect credit to score the 84. As for the other discussions regarding sales being higher in May for Ford F-series, it is proven that vehicles sales are seasonal based on factors. The auto companies all know and understand, and then we get politics and world impacts that disrupt. Yes yes they most certainly were giving up to 12k off and 0% for 84 months this wasn't long after christmas...just as some Ford dealers in my area were giving up to 7k off and 0% for 84 months on all 19 Superduty's near the end of March up till March 31...not sure how you could say that is being bias FACTS are not bias :S

RE: GM trucks outsell Ford first quarter !

Yeah same around here GM was basically giving the trucks away up to 12k off and 0% for 84 months...I know Ford never came close to half that (usually around 7.9% for 84 months and around 2k off) nor did RAM that that I know of....what I find funny is the local GM dealers selling the old body style as 2020 classic editions...I have a Ford yes so I do have some bias as GM has burned me in the past twice and never will a 3rd time....but I'd choose a Ford or RAM equally any day it would just be who had the best tool and deal at the time I was looking for a new truck. As for the way people spend their $ needing or not needing the stimulus check everyone lives differently and has a different philosophy on how to live life... I in my mid 40s have always from what I think have a great balance on spending and saving...but in my early 40's being diagnosed with cancer (free of it now) kinda changed my outlook on that a bit...save for retirement? I do just not like I use to who knows If I will make it there. Every day is a gamble. I know so many people who saved their entire life never took vacations etc to retire at 58 and at 61 they end up passing away....we can purchase anything we want in life by means of cash credit loans etc but one thing NOONE can buy is time

RE: Ford F-150 towing mirror size?

Been looking at getting the factory towing mirrors since I first considered buying an F150. Pricing on the aftermarket copies is down in the $200-250 range. My TT is a "narrow" version and the standard truck mirrors work to see pretty much straight down the TT sides. BUT being able to see more is always better ;) Anyways, being too lazy to run out to a Ford dealer right now, anybody with a 2019 F150 with towing mirrors care to measure the mirror sizes and distance from the window for me, please? Since no one has as of yet I can measure mine when I get home...Do you have any specific measurements would you like?

RE: Enough truck?

You should be fine with the current set up but probably not for the long haul as that truck is getting older but like you stated you will upgrade the truck. 2 things of advice I could give is stay at at least 1600lbs of payload and you will be fine and I would recommend the longer wheelbase truck 157" as they tow quite a bit more stable than the 145" wheelbase trucks....ask me how I know I have a 11 3.5 eco with the 145" and a 18 3.5 eco with the 157" wheelbase...both tow my rig great but the 157 does it that much better...
