RE: Uber expensive pickups...how much of a trend ?

I really don't need or want all the fancy stuff, thats why I still have my 93 dodge diesel, but my wife does want the fancy stuff and the only way I can afford it is to buy a 4-5 yr old truck with 50k miles, I will still have to pay 25k for it. but she does not say anything about my hot rod diesel, motorcycle, gun, antique tractor, addictions .........so I think I can get a truck she likes.

RE: 1200+ hp / 2100+ lbs-ft

SidecarFlip, Your way wrong. I have over 170K on my ford dyno tested at over 1300 horse power and have yet to have a problem with it. It runs from coast to coast every week. I'll bet money too that I get just as good of fuel mileage as most full size trucks on the road. If you have a White 2016 F350 smoking the tires at 70 mph passing you, wave it may be me. cool story bro.

RE: 1200+ hp / 2100+ lbs-ft

I have a friend that was in the DPC in 13, his 07 cummins made 900hp/1675tq, he drove it around quite a bit and ran it at the local 1/8th mile a bunch, every now and then he would get it hooked up and it would run a 7.10sec 1/8th. had a hard time keeping a trans in it even though suncoast was a sponsor, it became quite a hasel to pull the trans and take it to florida every time something went wrong. Paul Cato is his name

RE: Vacation Planning

Drive the truck up Mount Evans so the kids can be over 14,000ft, don't miss staying somewhere near Ridgway, Telluride, Silverton, spend a couple days exploring there, you will be hard pressed to find a more beautiful space.

RE: 1964 Roadrunner - Tow-Mater Cab-Over Bunk Resto-Mod

It's hard to believe an old trailer can make me so envious when I have a brand new one. Hard to get any cooler than that.

RE: Travel trailer under 8000lbs/rear living /outside kitchen

It may be imposible to find one with all three of your wants, those big 34ft TT's are awesome though.

RE: Ram 6 vs 8 speed

the new Cummins has past 900ft lbs, so it would be maxed out of the showroom with a diesel, but the gas engine could work.

RE: Post your tow vehicle pics here

Old Iron extravaganza.... The Old tow truck started out as a 3/4 ton SRW, but with the addition of a big Lance TC it had a transformation with a DRW D70 rear end and dually bed with my first attempt at base coat clear paint. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4448/37475065656_3e2c1fc720_z.jpgP9121495 by Darwin Richey, on Flickr

RE: Turbochargers... durability, reliability ?

I have been involved with a lot of truck/tractor pulling, most runs are wide open heavily modified diesel engins with 1-2-or 3 turbos, a normal pull will last 20-30 seconds and the EGT's can reach 2,000* with ease, at the end most of the time the engine dies, so from 2000* and over 100 lbs of boost to not runing in 3 seconds... never have I seen a problem with the bushings with baked on oil film. believe it or not the center part of the turbo rairly gets rebuild unless there is a problem, the wheels get changed aften. turbo bearing failure is due to bad or dirty oil or lack there of. I am on my 5th cummins truck and many many tractors/combines.. never have I done anything to a turbo other than change external parts, unless it has 500-700k miles.

RE: Disneyworld rant

We took our kids in 1996, in 2 years we will be taking our grandkids, that is about the only time I can gag down spending 4k in 4 days.

RE: Best campground in the Gatlinburg, Tn. area

We don't really like the north side of the park near PF and GB, just to many people. If you are going to spend time in the park maybe look at the KOA near Cherokee, we have stayed there a few times years ago and it is in a nice setting, although we havent stayed in a while we liked it. If you are wanting to spend your time in PF, PF KOA, Creekstone, Riveregde, Foothills RV resort & cabins all are walking distance to things to do and all with tram service, and all on the East edge of town so going to GB you don't have to drive through PF. Once in a great while we will stay at foothills RV resort, nice pool, quieter than the others and just a short walk to the pancake house.

RE: The real HP/TQ numbers this is going to hurt!

You have heard the term " feeding the troll" It's best to just let the fire go out, don't poke in it.

RE: Are you happy with your HP.

Looks like my guy that bales my hay and his 19 year old daughter. He unhooks the NH 7020 baler and hooks up the disc mower and takes off to the next job. She drives the 4030 JD cab tractor pulling a Adco 43xx series hyd hay rake. She backs the Adco up to the baler and hooks it up all by herself.....then drives the JD up on a 14k GN flatdeck pulled by a 1990's F250 flatbed....chains it down and heads on down the road pulling the Adco and the NH baler to the next field. Country girls can getter' done. Off the interstates in farm and ranch country we see all kinds of combinations like the pics. what's her name, I have a boy that needs a good woman.
