RE: Who’s still using a 7.3 diesel truck

I went with these tires, they are working great so far, especially in 4x4: General Grabber A/TX - #04508440000 All Terrain Truck SUV Size: LT235/85R16

RE: Who’s still using a 7.3 diesel truck

I hate the picture capabilities of this site. Here is mine: https://i.imgur.com/D03LSQK.jpg Dang!! Which model is that TC and what’s your camping weight? Lance 1191 that is in my signature. Camping weight as in full of water for offgrid camping like I do? Not going to get the weight police going on that one, I am heavy which is why I upgraded to a DRW.

RE: Who’s still using a 7.3 diesel truck

Still chugging along in my 2002 f350 PSD. If you have one I highly recommend bookmarking this site: https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/forum31/ 7.3 diesel isn't going away anytime soon. I have had mine for 3 years, upgraded from a f250 with a 5.4 in it. Had to replace the bed and do a bunch of work to it due to PO neglect. The shocks got upgraded to Rancho 9000's and I have airlift 5000 bags on it with upgraded overload bumpstops. Just had to put a new clutch in it at 236K, went with the Southbend HD clutch so it should hopefully last another 200k.

RE: New Ford 7.3 Gas

Does the new engine have Tow/Haul or engine braking? How good is it? I will post it again, a forum dedicated to the new 7.3: https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/forum307/ Its an awesome engine mated to the 10speed and will only get better with upcoming mods.

RE: SRW 3500 Dodge work with a Arctic Fox 811

I just park at the back of the parking lot with my DRW. I don't find it anymore problematic driving around town, but I do live in a rural community. I have mentioned it before, I had my 1191 on an SRW and when I switched to a DRW it was a night and day difference. Don't be scared of a DRW, be scared of being overweight, especially pulling a boat behind.

RE: Ford 6.2 gas vs 7.3 gas highway gas milage

According to real world MPG from owners the 7.3 is getting better mpg. I was surprised to see that. https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1614398-updated-7-3-mpg-8.html#post19663873

RE: Truck camper trade-in at dealer question.

I got tired of all the yahoo's showing up in small trucks wanting to tire kick my TC. Towards the end I would only show it if they showed up in a truck capable of hauling it and never got anymore responses so I traded it in. I sent pictures of my Shadow Cruiser to the dealer and they gave me what I was asking for my TC in trade in for a used 1191 so I was a happy camper. I had basically the same thing happen to me, pulled in and the sales person frantically ran out to get a look at it to make sure it was legit like he was sweating that I had lied to him about the condition, he told me to drive around back and unload it once he was happy to see it was in good condition in and out. Went in and did the paperwork and loaded up the 1191 and off I went. They had that Shadow Cruiser listed for sale about a month but eventually they sold it.

RE: F350 tire airing down ranges w/ truck camper

Now, it could be the type of tire I have is prone to it, I'm not a tire geek and just go with whatever Les Schwab mid range tires are. I run these tires with no issues, I am on the beach at 20-25 psi with an 1191 on the back fully loaded for off grid living for 2-4 days at a time.

RE: Looking for Truck + Truck Camper, Seeking Guidance

Some used F350's with the 7.3 gas engine are hitting the market, they will be from haulers so you might be looking at 100k+ miles on a 2020 truck, the engine is a relatively easy swap out to a new one if needed.

Retread tires?

RE: F350 tire airing down ranges w/ truck camper

I air down to 25 on my dually, if the sand is really sugar I will go down to 20. I am on the beach all the time during the summer with the TC on with no issues in 4LO.

RE: lance max/ af 1150 question

If your looking for one useable with the slide in check out the 1191, plenty of space with the slide in, even more with it out.

RE: Concerns About Going Full Time

No matter where you park keeping the camper warm is going to be a challenge in NY. Will you have electric hookup? Have a place to dump the tanks at the marina? Going to need the camper to keep warm so the tanks don't freeze up.

RE: Camper Security

I have been waiting on this guy to update his install but he went with PacLock locks for his Bigfoot TC. Same issue as you having to deal with the crackheads looking for easy money. https://youtu.be/bvY1yvvmUFE

RE: Good greif.....

And no one comments on the lack of turnbuckle tiedowns on the truck loading the camper!?! I think that lift is awesome.

RE: TC Fitted Cover

I used my Harbor Freight 25% coupon on this one: https://www.harborfreight.com/20-ft-x-30-ft-silver-black-extreme-duty-weather-resistant-tarp-57030.html I am hoping to get a couple seasons out of it, it is currently on the camper. This time around I put tennis balls over the sharp edges.

RE: Dodge 1999 3500 Lamarie dually

The bed supports on my 2002 f350 drw was rusted when I got it, failed inspection so I found a matching bed from a 2006 f350 drw from Texas and put it on. It wasn't to bad to take the old one off and put the new one on but it was an added expense I had not factored in. Good thing was while I had the bed off I cleaned up the frame and sealed it up, should be good to go for many many years. I would not haul a TC on it if the bed supports are rusted out.
