The numbers were too good to resist

My sales man called me and told me he could make me a heckuva deal on a truck I looked at three months ago, The numbers look good to me the payments looked good So I told him let’s do it, no it ain’t a diesel but the truck will do everything I need it to do 2020 Ford F350 SRW, 7.3 L, crew cab, 8 foot bed, XLT, 373 locking rear axle, and a few other options thrown in

RE: just saw my 1st 2020 F-350's

If anyone has ever ask an engineer to explain something to them , you will understand what I just went through, after an hour and 45 minutes of talking to a power train engineer he finally got down to the nuts and bolts and told me the transmission fluid is designed to Run at a certain temperature, he said that because the transmission shifts are controlled by solenoids, that having the fluid a certain temperature , they know what the viscosity and the flow characteristics of the fluid is ,So they can maintain optimum shift quality

RE: just saw my 1st 2020 F-350's

It was about 50-50 city driving and open highway, when I started the test drive the fluid was at 42° and as the engine was coming up to temperature the transmission temperature was almost matching it exactly, I was getting concerned until it stabilized at 192 and it did not climb anymore, I pulled one grade that generally should’ve heated the transmission up but all the truck did was drop one gear and the 7.3 pulled the hill in ninth and was accelerating And the trans temperature stayed at 192

RE: just saw my 1st 2020 F-350's

This past Friday I drove a F350 single rear wheel, 7.3 L , 373 gears with the new 10 speed , it is absolutely amazing how quiet it was in the truck the transmission shifted fine, most of the time during my test drive it was in ninth gear, I got the truck out on the interstate and ran it at 70 miles an hour in tenth gear and the engine was turning about 1600 RPM, I’ll pushed down on the skinny pedal and the transmission dropped about five gears and rpm jumped up to about 4500 to 5000, After that test drive I am seriously considering the 7.3 , , I drove about 20 miles and the truck was getting 13.1 miles per gallon and was climbing when I returned to the dealer

RE: best 5th wheel

The truck has an 8 foot bed, so I don’t need a slider, I will be pulling a gooseneck trailer most of the time,The RV salesman recommended getting a Reese goose box so I don’t have to constantly be changing between the fifth wheel and the gooseneck ball , the B&W looks good , Decisions, decisions, decisions.

best 5th wheel

I’m looking at a new truck, with the factory puck mounting system, I’m looking for the best fifth wheel to put in it, what brand are you using and what do you like about it and what do you don’t like about it
