RE: Ram Eco-Diesel vs F150 2.7 TT - Davis Dam

The Eco-diesel is a $4000.00 up charge in trims up to the Laramie Longhorn. In the Laramie Longhorn and Limited it is a $2850.00 up charge. This just changed as you can now order the Laramie with the V-6. I'm not sure why anyone would order a V-6 gas engine in a truck doing any kind of real work but to each their own. Don

RE: RAM 1500 Ecodiesel, anybody seen one in the wild?

yr2017 you are the first one I have heard that says the new Rams rattle. The one I test drove was as quite as my Dads 2013 Caddy and it was an Outdoorsman. As far as the Grand Cherokee goes, those things can be ordered with more skid plates then any pickup truck ever built. Front suspension skid plate, fuel tank skid plate shield, transfer case skid plate and underbody skid plate! Along with a much better four wheel drive system too. So unless your running over pot holes at 35 MPH the GC is better protected then the trucks you list in your sig. But to each their own. Jeep link 1 Jeep link 2 Don

RE: 2014 Ram 2500 Tonneau Cover Question

Haybate i didn't notice that the BF is 4 panels and the Flex is three. I think I'm going with the Bakflip, I don't like how high the flex is. Don

RE: 2014 Ram 2500 Tonneau Cover Question

Walker111, with the Bakflip and the Flex-Cover you can fold it all the way up to the cab and lock it upright. Unless you have a short box without a slider hitch this won't be an issue. Don

RE: I am a Chevy guy, but this is great!

I was a GMC guy till they went out of business on 2009... would never by government motor company vehicle Good for you. By the way, it's "buy". The rest of us will continue to enjoy GM vehicles. You should be happy they are still in business to keep the competition alive. Monopolies and duopolies only hurt the consumer and many suppliers would have gone under too. I, for one, am sick of hearing about government motors. Ford is no better as they took money at one time too. OMG really....now you went and done it. Why would you try and tarnish Ford's stiller reputation. They are the only company that loves their customers and treats them like family! Don

RE: 2014 Ram 2500 Tonneau Cover Question

Have to say they have done a great job coping Bakflip's design and cover it with three year warranty where Bakflip is two. So I might have to go with flex-cover. Don

RE: 2014 Ultimate Heavy Duty 1 Ton Challenge Video

I'm a GM owner but sounds a little fishy to me, especially when they say the did some testing at a GM test track. Maybe they agreed to the GMC winning if they got to use the track. Anyway, they need to show the tests instead just doing a condensed version. My personal opinion is they are all good trucks and the differences are not dramatic enough to say one is far better than the others. It's from PickupJoke.com what would you expect! Don

RE: You can order a 2015 F150, but you can't order a 2015 F150

Well Don, There are two F150 plants. DTP went down last week for approximately 4 weeks. Supposed to be back to work Sept. 22. Will slowly start backup building the 2015's. KCAP will go down for retooling in conjunction with Christmas break for 2-3 weeks. In the mean time we will continue to build 2014's while DTP builds 2015's!! Crazy huh!! Well that's not what is being reported, I have read that they (2015) won't begin to show up until sometime in February. So the Detroit Truck Plant will be back on line building the new 2015 aluminum trucks September 22? Well I can tell you for sure there are no 2015's on any dealers lot. We are just now building our pre-production models. These are not for sale. Just gonna be crashed, tested, etc. Note I said Wrong there will be NO F-150 2015 trucks built except the new aluminum truck and that will not come out until February 2015 at the earliest. If Ford has two F-150 plants, they should have taken one down this summer and changed it over I was under the impression that Ford was halting the steel bodied trucks in Sept. but it looks like the Kansas City facility will continue to build them through the end of the year? I don't understand why the DTP was not taken down in June so they could launch the truck in September? Who is going to buy a old steel bodied truck? Don

RE: You can order a 2015 F150, but you can't order a 2015 F150

Not only is Ford engineering the new truck. They're also inventing, engineering and building the presses, machinery and conveyors required to build aluminum bodies in bulk. That's something that's never been done before. Wow, Ford is inventing and engineering presses, machinery and conveyors required to build aluminum bodies in bulk? Really? Sorry but they are not doing any of that, at least not from scratch. All the machinery for these processes have been around for years. You might want to change your wording to say BUILDING not inventing. And Ford has committed to producing as many as 20,000 body shells in order to get the bodies right. That's a bunch of adjustments--and recycling. Their processes are important, as future car bodies will be made this way. And General Motors is already in the process of engineering aluminum truck bodies--even if their new 1500 series is just a year old. If their engineering (of the truck and the factory) goes smooth, we'll see the new trucks sooner. And when they get their processes right, Ford will close down the second factory and convert it to the new F150. They'll be making two different F150's for awhile. Wrong there will be NO F-150 2015 trucks built except the new aluminum truck and that will not come out until February 2015 at the earliest. If Ford has two F-150 plants, they should have taken one down this summer and changed it over. You do know that Ford is NOT the first car company to build a vehicle with aluminum don't you? The history of aluminum in cars A growth market today, aluminum has been a key material for automakers since the beginning. The first sports car featuring an aluminum body was unveiled at the Berlin International Motor Show in 1899. Two years later, the first engine with aluminum parts was developed by Carl Benz.Following World War II, aluminum had become inexpensive enough to be considered for use in mass-produced vehicles. A breakthrough occurred in 1961, when the British Land Rover company produced V-8 engine blocks made with aluminum cylinders. From there, aluminum automobile parts gained a foothold in wheels and transmission casings and then moved into cylinder heads and suspension joints. This infinitely recyclable metal is now the leading material for use in powertrain and wheel applications and continues to gain market share in hoods, trunks, doors and bumpers—and complete vehicle structures. - See more at: CLICK LINK

RE: Door sticker says never exceed 1263 lbs of cargo/passengers.

What!? That can't be right. I've found many other sources on line that state the payload as 1889 lbs. What gives here? My truck is a 2007 GMC Sierra 1500 Classic. Yep add in those options, like seats, spare tires, bumpers, AC, radio and anything else GM and Ford strips off their trucks to get those big payload numbers and your truck ain't that great anymore.

RE: Truck buying timing?

On the other hand, I've purchased off-lease vehicles and have been very happy with them, and I've returned leased vehicles that I cared for and serviced as if they were my own. So, caveat emptor and YMMV. You and I are not the norm my friend, I know a guy that never changes the oil until the end of his lease. He told me that the last truck the oil was not on the dip stick and what came out was jet black. I just shook my head. He looked at me and said "it ain't mine". So unless I was the person that leased it there is no way I would buy one. My DD just leased a 2014 Dodge Dart that she will buy at the end of three years if it's a good car, if not back it goes. Glad it worked out for you though. Don

RE: Truck buying timing?

Never ever buy an off lease or rental vehicle! I know way to many people that beat their lease vehicles and never maintain them at all! Rental vehicles are very well maintained but again get beat on from day one until they are sold. If you are going to buy used buy from the original owner not a dealership. Ford has closed their F-150 plants to change over to the new alum. truck and will be down for three months+. I would bet the leftover trucks will be picked over and the only thing you will find are trucks not set up for towing unless you look right now. Don

RE: UPDATE! Ordered a 2015 Eco-Diesel today! :)

Bamaman1 the new 1500 is ordered with the air suspension. I made a little more then I was hopping for for I might just jump up into the Laramie instead of the Outdoorsman. We will see when the pricing becomes available. The crew cabs are not slated for build until Oct 6. :( Don

RE: UPDATE! Ordered a 2015 Eco-Diesel today! :)

Well sold the old girl today,feel kind of sad really :(... I meet a gentleman at Sam's Club and he looks her over crawls under her :E without even asking :W . Opens all the doors and runs his fingers under the weather stripping :E and said this is the fist truck that didn't have any dirt under here! I looked at him and said well hell I wax the door jams ever year and wipe then down every time I wash her. Why do you think there is not any rust anywhere on this truck? He took her out on the highway, ran her around for 15 miles pulled back in the lot and wrote me a check for a down payment and said he will have the rest by weeks end. Made me feel very good when he told me this was the best truck he has seen out of the 20 or so he had looked at. Being it is a 4X2 he was not going to even call, but every time he looked at the pics of her on Auto Trader, he decided he had to take a look in person. He showed up on a 1994 Soft Tail that looked has good as the day he picked it up. So I'm sure my baby will be in go hands, still kinda sad though. :( Don

RE: Ram takes the lead.

You're not going to catch me in a light duty truck with a 30K trailer behind me with friction style brakes. You're talking an area that requires a medium size truck with air brakes-- . UH. Maybe you want to re phrase that. The air activates the FRICTION brakes to stop a vehicle. Still off a bit ,air keeps the brake shoes away from the drums. Spring activated- air released. Correct, lose air pressure and the brakes lock up, then fun begins!

RE: Ram takes the lead.

Really TravelNutz? Lets see, the Ram beat the F-450 in the King of Beasts tests and that was a 2013 Ram 3500 verses a 2013 F450. The 2014 Ultimate One-Ton HD Challenge had GM first Ram second and Ford last. I would say that's not a bad showing for the Ram as it was a 2014 not a 2015 like GM and Ford. BTW why doesn't GM use the SAE towing standards for ALL of their trucks like Ram does there buddy, talk about getting and F for misleading. Both Ford and GM strip things off their trucks then do their tow rating tests. Shameful just plain shameful. LOL Don

Ram takes the lead.

LINK New Cummins 6.7-liter calibration adds 15 lb.-ft. of torque, edging out even Class 4 pickup competitors to a best-in-class 865 lb.-ft. 2015 Ram 3500 crushes the competition with up to 30,000 pounds of SAE J2807-spec. towing capacity, beating the closest competitor by nearly 1.5 tons. 2015 Ram 2500 holds best-in-class 17,970 pounds of towing capacity, while adhering to SAE J2807 test criteria New best-in-class payload of 7,390 pounds (Ram 3500) Ram maintains credibility and customer confidence as the only automaker to align with SAE J2807 towing standard in its heavy duty pickup truck line Best-in-class Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) of 37,900 pounds The first 2015 Ram Heavy Duty trucks begin rolling off the factory line this week Unsurpassed powertrain warranty – five years/100,000 miles Good thing they used a 2014 Ram for the 2014 Ultimate Heavy-Duty Challenge against GM and Fords 2015 modles.
