RE: People sure are getting petty with their park reviews

As the Great Yogi Berra said, “Internet reviews are 80% bull and the other half’s made up.”

RE: F350 HD DRW mods for 4500# camper

Wait... wait... I can think of one mod. If the door latches are the same black plastic as a low miles 2009 Ranger and a pretty low miles for the age 2012 F-3fitty in my fleet, you want to carry a small tin of motorcycle chain lube, the spray type with the bit of wax in it, to spray them squawking Ford door catches once a month or so. Shuts them right up on warshboard dirt roads and other busted surfaces.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Annyways GPS auto steering is the best thing ever on 6 - 10 mph farm equipment.Don't worry that will be next... Elon should be able to get those running at 15 to 30 mph ;) Cmon. How cool would that be. A tractor going through a cornfield at 30 mph. Woohoo. :) Google "plow racing Sweden".... We have a neighbour with ze German Fendt tractors. 60km/hr 40mph in road gear. Some field operations are done at 12-15mph on dryland grain farms - harrows, high speed discs, spraying. But THE BEST application for grain farming auto steering is the self propelled windrower aka "swather". I'm still not sure I'd buy a truck from a company that names it after a trailer, and talks about bobtail 0-60 times to the fanpeople woo hoo'ing at the intro event. Mr. Musk & co. will figure it out and come up with something more business like than "Semi"

RE: F350 HD DRW mods for 4500# camper

Recommend driving it stock for 20,000-30,000 miles with the camper before selecting mods.

RE: Poll: How many 1T TC haulers have no modifications?

Top tip: post what your camper is and what non-modified truck you haul it on.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

I have served time in the commercial truck industry. I am not sure about a company that names the tractor (truck equipped as a complete vehicle from the factory with 5th wheel designed to pull semi trailers) "Semi" which is what the trailer that needs landing gear when uncoupled is, not the tractor... "Semi" is recognized in the heavy truck industry as a colloquial term used by people not familiar with heavy trucks. Like called a 40,000 tonne container vessel a "boat". When they begin to market straight trucks (trucks that are not complete vehicles leaving the factory intended to have a second stage upfitter body installed to make it a "complete vehicle") will they be called "Dumps" or "Mixers" or "Van" or "Temperature controlled van" or "Vacuum" or "Refuse Packer" or "Wrecker" or "Tanker" or "Flatbed" or .... I guess if you call something what it is not long enough propaganda proves it will become "truth". But then again I'm using a computer on which you click the "Start" button to shut it down... Annyways GPS auto steering is the best thing ever on 6 - 10 mph farm equipment.

RE: Poll: How many 1T TC haulers have no modifications?

2012 F-350 cab and chassis model, SRW 4WD, 18” wheels Toyo M55 tires, 6,2 gasohol, light aluminum flatbed. Cirrus 820. No mods. Edit: Cab and chassis F-350's have different rear suspension than won ton pickups. Stacked leaf packs vs long taper leaf. 3000lbs camper and overload leaf just touches. Stock wheels, tire size, shocks all round.

RE: 5.9 Cummins Diesel Towing capacity

The cooling system in a pickup truck ginerally limits the engine to full power output for a 20% ish duty cycle at stock output settings. If you have an old school manual trans you want to settle in and pull long grades in a gear at a rpm the engine will accelerate from part throttle, not cane it for all its worth then try grabbing a gear then nope downshift and cane it some more... A modern pickup with auto trans should protect itself from unskilled drivers that don't know how to get a heavy vehicle up a long grade with analog controls. vs a class 8 truck which has a 100% throttle on the rug duty cycle if you want.

RE: Ran over Gator

Tires have been flying to pieces since way waaay back. Truck cruising speeds are higher due to everything having to happen in a Big Hurry, Roads are clogged with vehicles so when the tread (aka "thread" on flies off due to heat failure, no place for the following traffic to swerve and avoid even if nose is not in phone screen...

RE: Shock Absorbers

When one considers that apparently modern OEM engineering computer selects different springs depending on equipment and what not within the same vehicle models - F350's apparently can have different springs - one wonders how off the shelf gas shocks can "automatically" be better than the shock spec'd by the OEM engineer? Or do the aftermarket suppliers custom make shocks based on your VIN? Those King tunable shocks look pretty good.

RE: When I'm driving do I run my fridge on propane or electric?

no. yes. maybe. Pre-cool the RV fridge for 2 days before leaving, Switch to electric 12 volt. Have assistant rev up tow vehicle engine to 2000-2500rpms Look at voltage reading in the RV electrical system. If it is not over 13.6volts the fridge will gradually flatten the rv batteries while you travel.

RE: My (our) Ultimate Truck Camper Body Build

PastorCharlie, thank you. The camper doesn’t have to be removed from the truck, just raised up enough to pull the tire out from in front of the TCs bulkhead.....lets just hope it doesn’t ever come to that. Rick That is a good looking truck body. RE: the spare if I tried that yes I would have a flat, slip and fall in the ditch trying to wrassle the spare out, that would be me with the 19.5 track over the face trying to wrassle it up out of the mosquito infested duck pasture...
