RE: Ram 1500 Diesel Towing Capacity?

You can still buy a normal truck...no one says you have to buy the super luxury truck...they make plenty of models in the cloth seat vinyl floor models if that's your thing, and everything in between. I found a tradesmen, crew cab, bench seat, IBC, back up camera, cloth seats and carpet in 2wd with around 1500 lbs of payload...oh yea, it was an Ecodiesel as well. They make for a pretty good truck...see them all the time around here...seems to be the pilot truck of choice for oversized load for a local trucking company. Would make a great daily driver that occasionally tows a moderate load. Not sure the ED is compensating for anything...if someone wants a hot rod I would buy the Hemi. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Ram 1500 Diesel Towing Capacity?

I had no problem finding a lot of Ecodiesels that had 1500 plus lbs of payload. Lots have 800 or 900 lbs but they tend to be loaded models.

RE: 2016 Chevy Silverado

Looks good but still using the same crummy projector headlamps:( LED running lights, LED fog lights but you couldn't updated the headlamps GM? Come on... Wonder if it has anything to do with icing in colder temps?

RE: No problem with payload here!

They do NOT believe in the OEM's ratings system.... I dare say they do not KNOW about the OEM's rating system

RE: 2016 Chevy Silverado

I love the 14 and up models. I think they are beautiful trucks. This one looks good as well. I like the 90's crew cab duality trucks by Chevy...looks great. Last ugly Chevy truck I saw was a 1976 long bed with holes in the fenders big enough to fit my fist. Lol Then again, I appreciate the design of most trucks. The new aluminum F150 has taken a while to grow on me...starting to learn to deal with the catfish nose on the new F150. I like the Rams too but the design is a bit dated now. Still a tough looking truck. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: pull trailer hitch problem

If you are running a lot of hitch head angle you can run into this problem...I did with my last WD hitch. With the max number of washers to tilt the ball away from the trailer I had a heck of a time getting the ball to couple and uncouple. I removed a washer or two and everything went back to normal. Now I am not sure if it was my coupler or what but my hitch head angle was the solution. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Recall on 37,000 2015 Ford F-150 trucks.

Love my old 2000 Town Car. Maybe it's just me...but if I come to a situation where I have to have adaptive cruise I turn off cruise and handle the speed adaption myself. It was bad enough that the back up sensors on my wife's former Kia Sorento would go off from fog...highly annoying. Back up camera is great though. New van has back up camera and no stupid back up sensors. Glad Ford is addressing this issue though. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Diesel Colorado/Canyon

I want it...this truck would fit my lifestyle perfectly...quite literally all the 3/4 ton truck I need... Great for Hunting... Great for fishing... Great for commuting... Great for fitting in my parking garage... Great for towing my pop up... Great for hauling my family of four around. .. Should be a 300k plus mile motor too. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Interesting Montana Concept - Huge Window on Front Cap

RE: Sway control bar >>>

Get an Equal-lzier with correct bar's 1000 or 1200# go by hitch weight Why is that better? What's wrong with the add on friction devices? Absolutely NOTHING. Both types are friction sway controls. The only difference is that in order to increase friction on an Equal-i-zer and the clones is to increase tongue weight and adjust the hitch. Sorry, its not for me... I much prefer my old fashioned WD hitches and sway bars... and yes I tried the new fangled expensive hitches... they offer zero over a well set up standard hitch and friction sway control (two if towing 24 ft long or more)... as a matter of fact they can be a negative If you set up a integrated hitch incorrectly then you have a terrible handling rig.. at least with an add on sway control you can retain friction sway control if the WD hitch isn't dialed in... or heaven forbid.. you experience a WD hitch failure. (Something I have experienced with dual cam sway control and it is NO fun) I have a back up Weight Carrying draw bar with a sway bar tab that travels with me when I tow. That way I can pull my trailer and use my sway bar in the event of another WD hitch failure. When we go back to a TT I will do the same... I will have a WC draw bar with dual friction sway bar mounts welded on that will stay with me every time I tow. Nothing worse than being ready to leave the campground or on the side of the road with a broke hitch and no safe way to get the trailer home. Something a simple draw bar with a few sway bar tabs could do easily. That means having a vehicle that can handle WC of the tongue weight that your vehicle has.. but thats for another thread. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Boy....they don`t build them like they used too!!!

Thank God, engineers, and the annoying government mandates for safety for modern cars and trucks. My wife was rear ended and the modern design of the Unibody, anti whiplash headrests, and crash engineering caused her to walk away sore and bruised...but very much alive. very cool truck! I would have to upgrade to a more modern seat with a full height head rest at minimum. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Help with Final Choice: Silverado or Ram 1500

IMHO.. 200-300 lbs is NOT wiggle room. Its literally one large man of extra. Think about it.. if taking an extra body makes you unsafe you NEED a 3/4 ton. If you are trading.. get a 2500 otherwise keep the Ram. The Silverado is fantastic but the Hemi has more HP, More Gears in the transmission, and a deeper Rear end. I agree with your wife, the GM is not as comfy as the Ram. But that is subjective. (not throwing down on the GM.. they are great trucks) But if you upgrade, upgrade to a Ram 2500 Big Horn with the 6.4 Hemi. That is an upgrade. Good luck no matter what you choose. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Getting Files From Desk to Lap Top

If you have a google, iCloud, or Dropbox account you could just drop the files into the cloud and pick them up on the new computer. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Anyone else mad about Apple....

I'll jump back in here on the weather app thing. Weatherbug is hard to beat, and as far as estimating the time of rain all you've got to do is look at the moving map and there is a little time indicator at the bottom of the radar. Plus, it's free. I also like the "Spark" portion of it. Thanks! I have not tried weatherbug since...my Blackberry Pearl (loved that phone BTW). I may have to give it a try again. Thanks!

RE: Thought I had found the TV of my dreams.

Hmmm, it would seem that the GMs with max tow are higher than that of the Fords. My GMC 1500 max tow has a GVWR of 7600 pounds, the payload in excess of 2,000 pounds, and is rated to tow 10,900 pounds. My friend has an average trim LT 2wd crew cab 14 Silverado and it's got 1900 lbs of payload. His may be an NHT model though...he has an IBC...not sure if that means he has NHT or not. He doesn't tow so if he has NHT it's because it happens to be on the truck he liked. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Thought I had found the TV of my dreams.

Are you serious? 65k for a F150 with an over revving tiny little engine? Why not get a beast of a 3/4 ton diesel for that same amount of money? Please don't get me wrong, if that's what you like, fine. Just wondering. First it wasn't 65K. It was an XLT in the 35K range. Don't know what 150 you are looking at for 65K. But not even the King Ranch was that much on the lot yesterday. Second. Don't need a diesel, don't want a diesel, don't like diesels. Third. Having sat on a diesel 24/7. The last thing I want to hear, or smell is a diesel. Also 1500lb payload, IS 3/4 ton. 2000lb payload is 1 ton. No such thing as a 1/2 ton, truck, or a 3/4 ton truck any more. You are singing my song. The Max tow XLT 4x4 was in the 40-45k range... that was just sticker... with the discounts they are running I would expect to be in it for 35-38k ish. Not too bad at all. I didn't get to look inside the truck as the dealership was closing.. I expected it to be in the 1600-1700 ish range... but not 100% sure on that. Not interested in a diesel either. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Thought I had found the TV of my dreams.

Local dealer has a 15 SCREW 4x4 XLT 3.5 Ecoboost with the max tow package and it has a 7,000 GVWR. Pretty nice truck too. Hold out for what you want. Thanks! Jeremiah
