RE: What do you cionsider the "best" tow vehicle tire?

Have the Cooper Discovery HT3. Have been pleased with them and due for their rotation. Came recommended by some on this forum. If you are looking for mileage warranty, be very careful/ Some LT tires come with little or no mileage warranty. Cooper warrants for 50,000 miles.

RE: What do you cionsider the "best" tow vehicle tire?

Upgraded from 245's to 265 Michelins, like others, I am very happy. OEM on my 2013 Chevy 2500-Although a different size. 25,000 and down to the wear bars. Would be O,K., IMO, for around town but not towing.

RE: Dak Prescott

Thomas, I agree with you. Too much money for Romo. Beaten up and getting older with time. The "arguably" best offensive line in football. Love that phrase, hasn't prevented injury to him or any other QB they have fielded. Some may say he was the best they had to pay to keep him. My response would be that being injury prone for the last 2 years cost them drafting a better player. I don't think the market, if anyone picked Romo up, would not have paid as much. A year with a new team to learn the system, and a year older would have been the end of his career. Fortunately, Jerry's son has begun more involved in player selection and I think it will pay off in the future. He is much more cautious. That is unless Jerry decides he still wants Manzel. Prescott salary is about 2.3 million, all guaranteed, for 4 years so they have him for a reasonably long time. Suh, a different story. Still a dirty player and disruptive to the team. IMO, playing dirty intimidates some players and gives him an edge. Another insane salary.

RE: Dak Prescott

I see a QB controversy as soon as Romo has a bad game.

RE: 32 years ago today...

Yesterday-my. 68th birthday-was the 49th anniversary of our engagement. Happened that way because birthdays was a paid holiday. March 2 is Texas Independence day and next year will be our 49th. I tell people that she asked me to marry her and when I said yes she replied "good, I have found the ring so let's go to the jewelry store," We were 18 & 19. She has been through a lo t with the anger I had after Vietnam but has stood beside me.

RE: Switch From Diesel to Gas.

Back to 4x vs. 2x. Second Chevy 2500 100000 miles with never a need for 4x4.

RE: The Perfect Pickup to Tow With and Be Towed ?

I would look at the disappointing Titan sales before deciding in a Cummins. Extra cost for a diesel that is used for putting around instead of work it is designed for. Low resale and Nissan is having a great deal of difficulty because of sales. Weight of engine reducing an already low payload.

RE: Woman w/Dog in car goes under water Louisiana flood

Here's a question why was she there to begin with? It must have been high enough cause the rescuers had a boat!!!!! If you look at the video it appeared to me the guy was standing in just above waist high water when he rescued her and the dog. She was standing up in the water also after being pulled out. Shallow water for the man but the car was in a ditch which was deeper and the car sunk in that ditch. She lost the direction of the road and drove off.

RE: Dak Prescott

Cowboy fan here. Love it when the pundits say the Cowboy's have "arguably the best offensive line in football" If so, why does Romo and the backups from last year spend so much time on the ground. Saw about 15 minutes of the game but the left tackle-a third year player- got tossed around, driven back or lost to a end runner player every play. Why is someone like that even on the team? Bags-You been a little quite. How goes the Buckeyes?

RE: The Perfect Pickup to Tow With and Be Towed ?

Be very very careful about what you buy. The sales people often don't know and will tell you that they can be towed 4 down. Friend has a 2-3 year old Ram, was assured he could tow behind his motor home. Could not. Several attempts to modify didn't work. Seems that starting the engine and putting transmission in neutral before taking off is not a proper choice on towing.

RE: 2017 Ford Super Duty Tech and Specs Revealed

I don't believe they are more affordable as much as I believe that emotions play a major factor in decision making. Who doesn't want to show the neighbors, friends and relatives a new overpriced truck? After a few weeks and they realized they have financed a new vehicle for 6/ 6 1/2 maybe 7 years at the price of a house from 1993. See lots of late model trucks on dealers lots. Lots are full of 1/2 and 3 year old trucks loaded with every luxury. Does some of them mean that they have awakened and realized they can't afford them. Saw a local "For Sale" site the other day. Young lady had a 2012 Chrysler 200 for sale. Said she was pregnant and needed a larger car. Said she owed about $24,000 and hoping to get a couple of thousand equity. A person says he was in the car business and to trade it in and take her loss and roll it into the price of another car. He said salesman convince people to pay too much, pay too long and end up in debt. My FIL had a Mercury Grand Marquis that was bought used and financed it as long as he could. IIRC correctly he still owed several years on it. Couldn't drive anymore and the Blue Book showed he was $6800 up side down. He parked it and eventually it was towed from his house. Note was sold several times. He went into a nursing home and we received letters and phone calls demanding payment and then letters of reductions in amount owed if paid now. They finally gave up after several years after I told them several times he was deceased.

RE: No more BFG for me...UPDATED!

UPDATE: We had our annual family campout last weekend and the new Cooper tires worked well. All 4 at 80 psi; same for the FW, as we were running a bit heavy. Towing at +/-62 mph. Tires are very quiet, though there was still a bit of "hunting" along the pavement seams, so I did have to be on top of my driving. Was muddy getting out, but had no problems, even in 2wd. Very slopping going in, however, and was in 4LO simply to keep my speed down through the ruts and holes. So far, I'm happy with the Coopers and hope they last better'n the BFGs. Lyle Why would you over inflate your TV front tires like that. The load on the front axle changes very little with a 5th wheel. What does the door jam sticker list as inflation for the front axle? If you have LT265/75R16E 65-70 pounds is all that is needed or desired. Or our you still running LT245/75R1E's, again 80 pounds in the front is over inflated with 6084 pounds capacity when you have around 5K on the front axle. That would contribute to handling issues. Chris 245/75R16 on my 2016 D/A 2500 said 55 front and 80 rear.

RE: Router

Sure, what's the issue? The Arris SB6141 is a wired modem, only a modem. You keep the modem from TWC that has the telephone device, but the internet modem part of it is disabled by TWC. Since the internet part is not usable you no longer have to pay the rental fee, even though you still have the modem. Yeah, it makes no sense. Now, since your modem you received, and rented, from TWC no longer works for internet, you hook up your Arris SB6141 for internet access. You will need a router if you have more than one device to access the internet. A connection kit is available from TWC that contains all you need to hook up your new modem, and keep your old modem for the phone access. Post a question and we'll try to explain if this is still unclear. Understand that the TWC Modem is kept for phone and cable but stumped on why the description of says it is not a WI-Fi provider. My ignore is showing but I believe I am wanting a internet modem (?) that provides internet AND WIRELESS reception throughout the house .

RE: Router

Now I am confused. The description says: Wired modem only, Requires CABLE Internet Service, if not sure your provider is CABLE call them to confirm. Note: does NOT include WIFI Router or VOIP Telephone adapter Can someone help?

RE: Router

Okay, I've done some checking because I also have TWC and am tired of the modem lease charge. From what I understand you can buy a modem for about $35 to use, but you have to keep the phone/internet modem in order to use the phone line. However, you don't have to pay a lease fee on the phone modem. You keep that modem, use it for just the phone, and there's no rental charge. If you can figure out the sense in that kind of arrangement you're a better man than I. I'm ordering my new modem and getting rid of this rental fee. Here's where I got the info: TWC explanation One of the modems they have on the list is available for around $33. Oh, this is a DOCSIS 3.0 modem. Thank You for that. I had been to that page but missed the first page where you could keep the existing at no charge. The next page lists the modems recommended. What modem are you going to buy. Haven't found any on that list for that price. If you tell me what you are buying, please list why. P.M> if necessary. I have problems understanding the terminology and what would actually work. Thanks That is much better than the same model lowest priced Arriss at $158.00 new that I could find.
