RE: Best and Worst Feature of your truck

2016 DMax/ Allison 2500HD 4x4 (work truck) Pro, its paid for, though that shouldn't count. So many features for a bare bones truck it's hard to count but I guess the power is so much better than my old 8.1 liter. Con, the stupid DEF tank under hood fill, what were they thinking?! Best after market feature is the 60 gallon in bed tank, it let me run from Fresno, CA to Denver without stopping for fuel. What does that 60 gallon tank full of fuel do for your rear axle carrying capacity? What do you think it does to the carrying capacity? Do we have to play "5 whys" to get the root cause? Do you know what load he carry's and pulls? GEEZE, why all the hostility????? can't find any bad RAM/CUMMINS reports today? :B. The good part is not going to def fluid in the fuel tank. Chevman

RE: 2 millionth Duramax built

by contrast chevy built the 100th million small block in 2011. yes, there were many many changes over the year, but still a successful engine. I'll bet ford has built similar number of their small block. Now I have owned two duramax's. a 2004.5 that our son now has and is still running strong, but only has 160K miles on it. and a 2015 Denali. both have been very nice trucks with zip issues. but I'll bet cummin's has built more than 2 million of the engines used in the dodge and many motor homes along with many other applications. Yes Cummins has built a ton of engines. Not the same issue as a truck. chevman

RE: HD Diesel Cost Comparison

Love to watch 'truck guys' pee all over each others boots for no reason at all. It's pathetic to read one guy talk down another guy's truck for whatever reason. Personally I am a Dodge guy. I've owned three - a 1500, 2500, and a 3500. The first pulled a pop-up. The second pulled a Prowler Regal. The third pulled our recently traded Arctic Fox. None gave us a bit of trouble - but that's relative. Another guy could have bought the same trucks and beat the hell out of them (and claimed they didn't) and not serviced them (and claimed they did) and talked them down every chance they got. Bottom line - all good trucks, all good experiences, all relative. Live and let live. If I paid $3K more for my truck than another guy and I love it, I don't care about the $3K. Other people like to nitpick to make themselves seem bigger and others smaller. Life is too short. We're all campers, and we all like trucks. WTF? Great post chevman

RE: 2017 Super Duty is *****

I wonder with all the new technology if a new truck would serve for 15+ years? I always read "trucks aren't made like they used to be". Oldcow. We will have owned our truck for 13 years this Dec. No issues of any importance yet. Chevman

RE: HD Diesel Cost Comparison

I looked under the hood of the Fords and said,"Holy Cats". Where's the engine?. Ford has been this way for years. chevman

RE: Fix for gelcoat fron caps that are faded?

If I was good at posting pictures I would show a 2014 brown Redwood that faded from the sun. From a tan back to the original brown using poli glow. It is hard to believe but using poli glow on our white alpenlite I know how great poli glow is. chevman

RE: Ike Gauntlet 2017 3500s DRW 22,800# load

We are in a very large rv resort. Few fifths need or have the need for more truck than needed but the ones that do have them.chevman

RE: new truck

I agree with the above about pending money and NEVER ask for information. I can figure what we need. I do feel some need information and for me I tell my thoughts but really not a brand. chevman

RE: Class A vs 5th Wheel

We were towing south on I-5 and saw a semi hit an S-10 chev that was going round and round on a rain and windy day. We stopped at a rest stop and a 40 ft MH driver got out and said wow that winds really blows ya around. Not really was my answer. I could tell he did not like my true answer. Same for our neighbor when we were driving North on 395 in wa st. As we entered I-90 he changed lanes. The wind was blowing and we watched him fight to stay in the lane. We stopped at a rest stop and he told me he did not change lands the wind pushed him. Scared them of course. So Cummins 12V 6.7 and I feel we like what we have. chevman

RE: Extended range fuel tanks - who has one?

When you have Transfer Flow install an auxiliary fuel tank they recalculate your new auxiliary tank to your current fuel gauge on your dash. i.e. full= 60 gal. 3/4 tank= 45 gal. etc etc etc. Maybe for your truck. Based on my research GM's computers can only be set to a tank size GM installs at the factory (26 or 34 gallons for my year). Supposedly there's a way to use EFI Live to edit the tables and re-calibrate the fuel level sensor voltages so your fuel gauge displays accurately. Otherwise gallons used would be accurate, but gallons to empty and the gauge itself would be significantly less than accurate. You are probably right. It dosen't appear that it would be a good idea for you to install an auxiliary fuel tank. We have this issue on the 55 gal inbed tank for the correct guage reading but the truck has fuel used and it is correct. Just a toggle switch to change tanks. chevman

RE: Extended range fuel tanks - who has one?

The extra weight of tank and fuel, will decrease mpg. fuel and bathroom breaks helps keep the drivers alert. No reason to need a fuel station for a bathroom break . We buy fuel when we see a good one for our 53 ft and the extra inbed tank allows us to have a choice. chevman

RE: Considering new truck

We are on our 2nd dually truck because it is what we felt best for towing. Driving in the winter months only 6 months sitting in our garage. Wife loves being in a truck. chevman

RE: Ike Gauntlet 2017 3500s DRW 22,800# load

From what I see the 6.6 is smaller than a 6.7. No bragg just a fact. Kidding of course. chevman
