RE: Tailgate Step

First rule in advertising - never drawn attention to your competitor. GM is still doing it with the aluminum bed campaign all the while they are readying their own next gen aluminum 1/2 ton. Fans on GM forums nash their teeth over the brain dead marketing department . They mocked the step and now? They mocked the aluminum and now? They have not mocked the styling to much but now they are copying Ford's dropdown window style to .:W New GM window style copies Ford Smart move GM. On all 3 things. :B They just wouldn't look so silly if they could hold back a bit on bashing the competition. Kindas like a guy who's the big boss now. You truly do not think Ford has not done the very same thing when it comes to "copying things" do you? Don

RE: Tailgate Step

Actually the step in front of the license plate is just as effective as the corner steps. I'm confused; must have missed something. What if the tailgate is down? I think he is talking about the step in a tailgate.

RE: 13 mpg semi

Is this technology going to be shared with other truck manufacturers since they received 20 million dollars of tax payer money? "The US Department of Energy gave Volvo $20 million to work with and the truck maker matched the funding, and then some.". That is a huge fuel savings the best I ever seen in a Volvo was 8 pulling 38,000# on flat roads. Don

RE: Driving with your hazard flashers on

I wasn't intentionally calling him an idiot. I was responding to the post calling me an idiot. I used poor judgment in my wording. He may have a reason for doing it for all I know, but everyday for that long strikes me as odd. Maybe he is intimidated by the interstate or maybe his tail lights don't work. As to the OP if you feel this driver is endangering the motoring public call the police as directed to do by the Highway Patrol. As far as calling someone an "idiot" for doing so you may be looking in a mirror. If this was a one time deal than fine no need to call the police. But this has been going on for three weeks so if his brake lights do not work this person needs to get them fixed or stop driving the truck period! I have turned on my four ways during heavy rain, fog or snow and coming up on a traffic jam. If I were pulled over I would ask them why they use their flashers? It is to be seen and in heavy rain, fog or snow it is very hard to see the vehicle in front of you. But then I also do not drive like a madman in those conditions either. Don I understand that my comment about the mirror was directed at the person calling you an idiot. Kind of like his other posts and if this person can't afford to fix their vehicle then they need to find another mode of transportation. This what if BS is really dumb and as for someone calling the police on me or someone in my family if your not doing anything wrong then call away. Don

RE: Ford Raptor vs. Chevy Silverado

The Raptor's engine has different pistons and tuning. OK didn't know that.

RE: Ford Raptor vs. Chevy Silverado

What video or test are you referring to? 2017 GM against a 2016 Raptor or F150. I am curious. And on the Raptor vs base 150, very different tunes. There is a video going around showing a 2016 f-150 6 speed running a 2017 f-150 8 speed. I thought the 2017 was a Raptor. I'll see if I can find it but it doesn't look like it was these guys.

RE: Ford Raptor vs. Chevy Silverado

Since Chevy really doesn't compete with the Raptor I wish that they had used an F150 with the standard 3.5 Ecoboost. That would be a lot more relevant to me. They ran the 2017 8 speed up against the 2016 6 speed and it got dusted. Since they are not even running an 1/8 mile the two 2017 trucks should run neck to neck if equipped with the same gears. Not a Ford guy so not sure it the Raptor has a different tune then the other f-150's

RE: Rocker panel replacement

Like Girt dog said go south and buy a clean truck that needs an engine and or tranny for a grand or so and bring it back up and swap your truck's drivetrain in to it. A whole lot smarter than throwing money into a turd. These trucks are a dime a dozen. Don

RE: Rocker panel replacement

Just drive it till it folds on half, like this "folding plow truck" Folding Plow Truck Bahahaha I bought a Meyers plow and it came with an 1979 GMC Blazer that when you pushed the clutch the front end would bend down! There were no rockers left and the truck flexed so much that the driver side door latch pin snapped off going around a left hand corner! :E Took the plow off and dropped it off at the scrap yard. If you have that much rust the truck is not worth fixing. Move on. Don

RE: 2017 F150 and Titan Pulling the Ike Gauntlet

Who in their right mind would tow with a 305 2 bbl in the first place? Really? Maybe a 350 but the 454 was the way to go if towing with a GM/Chevy. For a Ford the 460 and Dodge/Plymouth the 440 all 4 bbl. carbs. Don

RE: Wheel hub assembly failure due to towing?

If the vehicle has anti-lock brakes you can remove the sensor and using a rubber tipped grease fitting add some good full syn grease to the hub. have someone rotate the hub has you add the grease just don't go crazy with it! Works great will be doing mine this spring when the weather breaks. X2 on the cheap interweb hubs on trucks! Cars are fine but they are to cheap for HD trucks. Stick with the OE or a good parts store brand like NAPA Gold hubs. BTW adding some copper high temp never-seize will make changing them the next time a whole lot easier trust me! Don

RE: Tailgate Step

Why couldn't you slide it in with the ladder deployed? Maybe use pins and spring clips so you can easily remove the ladder. Then you only have to lift it over the brackets. That looks like a nice set up would like to hear how easy it is to use if you get it. Don HAHA I didn't see dewey's post "And when I don't want it on the tailgate, I pull two pins and the whole thing comes off."

RE: Tailgate Step

I thought that GM ad campaign was just about the dumbest thing ever. The integrated tailgate step is a fantastic idea. I'm currently looking at getting a Bestop bumper step for my RAM 2500. Trucks have gotten so tall in recent years and it's just about a groin ripper to hike my short legs up in the bed. I need to get something like this to make it easier in and out of the truck. KJ I have the AMP version of this step. Great!! They make them for Mopar also but is covered under the Mopar warranty. It can be ordered as a dealer installed option on all Rams. They have them for the dual exhaust trucks now also. As for the GM step, way to complicated and I can bet it will cost you or your insurance company a ton of cash if that tailgate ever needs to be replaced! Ford still has the best Man step hands down.

RE: Best Diesel SUV Tow Vehicles?

Here is a link to an older (less capable) GL towing a 30' Airstream. Notice in the comments people using it to also tow in the mountains, and the one guy saying how it tows better than his 6.2L 2500 ..... Here is his video with high cross winds. Love is comment about the guy with a fiver tell him how bad it must be because his fiver is getting blown all over! LMAO got to love that fiver mentality :R same GL in the wind enjoy all you naysayers! That's all you need to know, told in that video, a quartering tail wind is not problematic. You don't know if the other driver in the 5th wheel was driving into a quartering HEADWIND, going the other direction, when he pulled in to fuel up also. Stupid video, without all the facts. You might want to go back and try listening to the video without your prejudice. He said a guy with a fifth wheel came up to him and said "I don't know how you guys must be doing it you must be having a rough time. This wind, I'v got a fifth wheel and getting blown all over the road so it must be awful for you". @ 1:04 he is driving down the road a said "some quartering headwind mostly cross winds". No we don't know in which direction the other driver is going. We know this, the other driver said he was getting blown all over the road and the video shows the GL is not so we do have that fact! Keep these posts up and you will look like Fishy the spin doctor :W remember Fish I added the winky so it's all good. Don

My dealer had a Hellcat and sold it for sticker price. No markup or markdown, it sold in two weeks. Don

RE: 2017 Raptor vs. 2014 Raptor Drag Race

It's basically a street legal race truck! As was pointed out ten speed not eight speed my bad. Like I said after I got my new truck, I could dust any EB off the line just not for very far LOL! And as I said when Ford gets their new transmissions on line they are going to be the fastest truck on the road and they are!. Great job Ford! Don

RE: Best Diesel SUV Tow Vehicles?

I find the wording of your post interesting. You say I would never let any of our kids ride in an RV. This wording suggests you recognize that the kids would like to ride in the RV. (My kids loved riding in the RV) Then you say you wouldn't make your dogs ride back there. It seems like if we talk about what a child wants we have to ask the child and report honestly...."the child wants to ride in the RV". Because we can't ask the dog we get to assume the dog wants what we want him to want. So, my dog wants to ride in the RV with my kids. Given the current events in this once great Country of ours, I'm going to do this a politically correct as I can. My children did not dictate how things were done in our home. My wife and I did that! Nor would my dogs if they could talk :R. That would be what is wrong here in America, kids no longer are told "NO YOU CAN NOT DO THAT!" and if you do you will get an ass whooping! Sounds like maybe this is an issue up north with some people too! I have recovered two RV's after they crashed the Motorhome did fair better than the TT did but still all as in everyone in both crashes went to local hospitals. The TT was a total loss with everything thrown all over the road. It looked like a tornado had picked it up and tossed it down the road. Do RV accidents happen all the time? I do not have the statistics on how many crashes per say 100 RV's there are a year so I can't say. I do make anyone riding in my vehicles wear their seat belts. As a part time truck driver (having held a CDL all of my life) my accident rate per mile is extremely low. So by your way of thinking I should not need to wear a seat belt nor should my passengers right? Sorry but the risk to reward is why too low IMO. BTW as a kid our Dad would let us ride in the fivir when traveling locally only. Mind you this was in 1973 in a 28' Lark fifth wheel and I have to say it was fun but there was no way you could sleep in it traveling down the road. Well maybe if you were dead tired you could. Don
