RE: Test drove some Rams over the weekend

They are fine trucks. It may have changed since 2012 or maybe it's just the way the dealer ordered mine, but look out for those chrome mirrors. I had to go after market to get the flip up tow extension. Sickening after three days of ownership. Not sure what you mean here. The mirrors pictured are the tow mirrors and on the HD trucks they are power folding in the upper trim levels. You still have to tip them up but they power fold back to the door. For 2016 or 17 I heard Ram is doing away with those and going with a tow mirror like Ford and GM have. Here is a pic of the 2015 tow mirrors on my truck. http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/DSCF3239_zps6c74c4c2.jpg height=450 width=450

RE: Ram Goes to Stunning 900 lb-ft of torque

goducks just look at the post above your's LOL BTW Troy I have never not once hide the fact that I work for FCA. As far as any more specs nothing yet. It will only be available with the Aisin 6 speed in the 3500. As for the 4500 and 5500 I do not know.

RE: Ram Goes to Stunning 900 lb-ft of torque

Fish and his fishy 1000'# stories. Link it Fish or it ain't true! BTW did someone say GM/Chevy D-Max is going to hit 900 also but in 2017. As far that pickupjoke.com link you posted goes Troy that was some sad jurnalism right there! Isn't the pumpkin or pig normally referred to what Ford uses? Unbolt it and the whole assembly comes out from the front axle housing as one unit . Where GM and Chrysler you remove the cover on the back of the axle housing pull the axles out, remove bearing caps (2) and the assemble comes out the back? I do recall going to the junk yard and picking up a pig for our 70 Ford Ranch Wagon when my brother did a burn out in the grass. When the car got to the road it went SNAP and we went OH SH!T Dad's going to kill you!

RE: GM expanding more in Michigan/USA, not outsourcing

Dutch_12078, What's your point? GM builds vehicles in Mexico for Mexican (population 122 million), Central American (population 45 million), and South American (population about 400 million presently) sales. GM is worldwide and has more than 100 manufacturing/assembly plants. OMG Travelnutz are you kidding? So If FCA invests in our Mexican plants their American job killers? But if GM does it's OK Please tell me you're not trying to say none of their products come into the USA and Canada! And what about the Canadian? If it's not OK to have US jobs go to Mexico then why is it OK for them to go North? BTW I don't have a problem with either but why one and not the other? Don

RE: Ram Goes to Stunning 900 lb-ft of torque

As far as the 6.7 Cummins I don't know where it's red line is. All three get their peak torque at 1,600 rpm besides the HO Cummins, and all three up shift at 3,000 rpm. My 04 HO would up shift at 3000 rpm if you had the go pedal to the for but would not downshift above 2300 rpm. So Turtle was that year TBI or did it have injectors?

RE: Ram Goes to Stunning 900 lb-ft of torque

And now for extra credit about TM. The mid 80's Vetts with their plastic transmissions had TM. They also had throttle by cable. The question is: How did they TM without throttle by wire? No Google cheating!!!! :B TPS talks to the ECM and the ECM says sorry we are not going to allow that today and retards the timing and if fuel injected it may defuel it also. You said no Googling so I'm not sure if that year the Vette had TB or injectors. But I'm sure I'm 100% wrong on this as I never post any facts. BTW some of you need to stop taking everything so literally. My low to mid TQ statement was made in general. My 04 Ram CTD had a red line of 3200 RPM's and at 70 mph towing had no pick up at all! Unless you hit the tow/haul button or slowed down. My 2015 ED is somewhere around 4200. As far as the 6.7 Cummins I don't know where it's red line is. Don

RE: Ram Goes to Stunning 900 lb-ft of torque

. Then add the Ram can out tow both the others and the question becomes do you want top speed or towing ability. Don This is based on what towing event? Almost all of the towing tests I have seen the Ram came in last. Out as in weight not speed.

RE: Ram Goes to Stunning 900 lb-ft of torque

Everyone knows that a in-line engine makes tons of torque down low and thru the mid rpm range and a V8 is just the opposite so the V8 should be able to out run the Ram over a long haul. False! I am starting to not take you seriously on how much false information you have posted in this thread. There are many characteristics of an engine that determines when it gets its power, but the cylinder configuration is NOT one of them. The stroke length of the engine has a lot more to do with when an engine gets its torque. There are a lot more dynamics in an engines design that effect its characteristics as well. Currently all three light heavy duty diesel engines get their peak torque at 1,600 rpm. The only odd man out its the Cummins high output variant that gets its peak torque at a higher 1,700 rpm. Here is some light reading with the actual differences between a I6 and V8 diesel. I6 versus V8 diesel. You might want to re read your link my friend. It reads that in-line or I6 diesels top out or "red line between 1600-2000 RPM and "produce peak torque AT 1200 RPM, but by 1600 the torque has dropped drastically" This is found under the "I6 Advantages and Disadvantages" section. As far as the lying about the SAE J2807 specs both GM/Chevy and Ford had to remove parts and not just on the F-450 but all across the line up, to be able to get their trucks to look half way decent, Ram did not! Don False! Not the F150. As far as the 2.7L EB versus the Ecodiesel, the mpg may be different but the cost per mile may not be too far off depending on the time of year due to the cost difference in fuels. Also the 2.7L was not "racing" up the hill since it was just doing the speed limit and had plenty of power to accelerate if needed. Just because the Ecodiesel could not hold the speed limit and the Ecoboost could does not mean it was "racing" up the hill. The quicker (not faster) off the line acceleration of the Ecodiesel has a lot more to do with the muck lower first gear of the 8 speed in the Ram than it had to do with engine power. The Ecodiesel makes better fuel mileage towing and empty. If you do some checking I have said the Ram ED eats the Ford EB off the line through third gear (the Ram's third gear) do to the 8 speed transmission in the Ram. The only reason the Ford can hold speed is do to the twin turbos and higher red line over the ecodiesel. But and this is a huge BUT it will cost you gobs of fuel to be able to do it! This is not a slam against the EB they are great engines and I have no problem saying so and have said so. Even over on the Ram forums! The differences between the two just depends on preferences. If you like having power to spare in those cases when you need to pass traffic that is going slower than the speed limit and do not mind paying extra in fuel then the 2.7L Ecoboost is for you. If you want better fuel economy, but do not mind not having as much power or you do not mind going slower than the speed limit then the Ecodiesel is for you.Not sure why you think the Ecodiesel is slower, pulling a step long grade yes but other than that nope they are very fast. As the guy in a 2015 Ford suv with a EB found out yesterday morning. We were side by side and I needed over in his lane, push down on the ole go pedal as did he and bye bye Ford. I will say when he got the chance he went around me like a raped ape. But then I was getting off the e-way so I waved good bye as he raced by me lol. My preferences is that I don't mind paying more for power and capabilities. I have been in one of those situations towing where I was stuck behind slower moving traffic back when I had my 4.6L. I could not pass because I did not have enough power to pass without needing two miles of roadway to do so since the truck was barely able to accelerate. The semi in front of me and I were being passed by trucks that had more power than mine and I was stuck behind that truck for at least 20 miles. After that I said never again which is why my trucks have always been overpowered since then, and I will gladly pay extra for it. Others may not feel the same. Well again other than a steep grade the little Ecodiesel is more than capable of passing and not needing 2 miles to do it. Have you ever driven one? I betting not as 98% of the people that are making these comments have never been behind the wheel of a Ecodiesel. I ordered mine with the optional 3.92 gears, why like you it's better to have it then need it! Don

RE: Ram Goes to Stunning 900 lb-ft of torque

Well we don't have the testing numbers yet so until then we don't know who will make it to the top first. Everyone knows that a in-line engine makes tons of torque down low and thru the mid rpm range and a V8 is just the opposite so the V8 should be able to out run the Ram over a long haul. Then add the Ram can out tow both the others and the question becomes do you want top speed or towing ability. Just like the Ford EB and the Ram ED do you want top speed or mileage? The Ram is the fastest off the line in every video I have seen also. It was not far enough behind the other two to really make a big difference, it will catch you guys on the backside and control that speed much better than the other two going down the hill. As far as the lying about the SAE J2807 specs both GM/Chevy and Ford had to remove parts and not just on the F-450 but all across the line up, to be able to get their trucks to look half way decent, Ram did not! Myself, I think Ram shot themselves in the foot letting that V8 Cummins go. If I were in charge that engine would be in the 1500 and 2500 Ram along with a HD tow/payload option (think 6 lug axles) on the 1500 trucks. I also would have optioned the Ecodiesel in the 1500 but without the HD option. But I'm just a lowly Toolmaker stuck in the Tool & Gage department without any say in the matter. Don

RE: Head to head oil burners comparison

The ram 1500 EDiesel won't beat the Cummins in anything but fuel mileage! Two totally different vehicles. The Nissan has a 6 lug 10.5" AAM axle the ram a 9.25". The Nissan is a 2500 badged as a 1500 and far more capable than the Ram 1500. If you care to compare the Ram 2500 to it then it begins to not look so good. Please note the Nissan looks to be a much better truck then before and with the Cummins it will be hard to beat the fuel mileage compaired to the 6.7 Cummins and Powerstroke or the Duramax. But to compare it to any standard 1/2 ton is not fair. Don

RE: Lead, follow or get out of the way!

I don't care to much about going 100 mph in my truck, and am more concerned that it does not go 40 mph when towing. Then you would love the Ram 1500, if towing within it's limits it will go well over 40 mph. Towing my boat 6100# ready to fish with full tank of fuel she can run 70 without any issue at all. Heck it will even pass those slow Chevy owners in the right line without endangering the motoring public! :W Don

RE: Ram Goes to Stunning 900 lb-ft of torque

Truck Trend prnewswire.com autoblog.com So lets see if they write about Ford or GM their Gods? But if it's anything good about FCA/Ram they have it all wrong? OK good to know :R "Ram claims that this huge figure is the most torque ever available in a mass production vehicle, and it tops the 2015 model by a healthy 35 lb-ft. The added grunt comes thanks to adjustments to the fuel delivery and the turbo's boost, and to better handle things, the rear axle gear now is held with 16 bolts, rather than 12. The tweaks also push the tow rating to an SAE J2807-certified 31,210 pounds, which is absolutely monumental." Note the highlighted part, Ram claims, not Alpar or Truck Trend or anyone else Ram claims! also note this "2016 Ram 3500 crushes the competition with up to 31,210 pounds of SAE J2807-spec. towing capacity, beating the closest competitor by more than two tons" without have to strip the truck of you know pesky things like a spare tire, radio, all seats but the drivers and the center console! Shame they can't play by the rules. As far as who gets to the top first, if that is all you have to hold on to you can have it, the Ram will settle with being to the top a few minutes after you. "Ram went from 12 to 16 hardened bolts on the rear axle ring gear" That is just so now they only need to properly torque 75% of the bolts and still have 12 tightened to spec. Yep VM screwed up but FCA had the balls to stand up and say they screwed up and will repair the affected trucks when the rod lets loose. Beats having your ignition turn off and people dying don't you think. Don

RE: Ram Goes to Stunning 900 lb-ft of torque

Luxury fifth wheel makers are churning out models exceeding 45' with 23,000# empty weights. In order to tie that much rig you used to have to pop for a $150,000 medium duty Freightliner. Now you can tow that trailer for half the money. And, yes, it will pull everything down to a safe stop with the extremely adequate Cummins exhaust brake. According to the article Ram is the only truck maker using the SAE towing standard in the 2500/250 &up line of trucks. But then you would have had to read the article to know that.

RE: Lead, follow or get out of the way!

Bitter lol no not bitter just not a fan of liars is all. You might be surprised to know that this weak junk engine can even make it to 120 mph and it doesn't take 4 mile to do it. How about you and Fish and 48OHLT go to the FORD EB forum and let me know how many turbos are self destructing then come back here and tell the forum what you came up with. Bet you won't. Fish yep there were an unknown number of engines that were built with improper torque specs on two rod caps. How it happened has not been reported at least not publicly. These engines made it through the hot test stand without failure. They seem to fail within the 25,000 KM +/- but well within the factory coverage. So yep some customers are going to experience an engine failure. Is it going to be a inconvenience but Ram is replacing the engines when they fail, something Ford seems to have an issue with sometimes. All of these are 2014 trucks and yep just like Ford and there new EB engine had this engine has had a few issues in the beginning. And just like Ford FCA is working to fix these issues. I have not had any big issues with my truck other than a bad CC switch and a left puddle lamp that was replaced at the dealer in less than 15 mins. That is better than I can say any of the Fords I owned ever had. But then I have not owned a Ford in a very long time due to the poor customer service both from Ford and their dealers. I'm not sure why some of the members here feel they need to bash anything with the FCA, Chrysler brands but it really makes you look very petty. :) Hi, Don; Unlike some people, I have no desire to drive over 100 MPH anymore. Actually I'm fine with my Eco-boost being electronically limited, if it is. I don't know, but 85 MPH would be plenty for me. I don't need to read about the early Eco-boost and their problems or the new ones either. Maybe people on this forum don't know me very well, but on the Airstream forum, they know that Bob tells it as it is. And if my truck blows up I will post it for all to see. The truth is the truth, and I have nothing to hide. I'm happy for you that your truck gets fantastic mileage, but that wasn't my main thing when I bought my truck. If it gets better mileage than my Lincoln, that's good enough for me, if not, oh well, it's mine now. Please tell us all about your 120 MPH drive with your Eco-diesel; I would be so (NOT) jealous knowing that your truck might go uselessly too fast. Yet another Ford guy that can't read or comprehend what he is reading. I never said I or MY truck ever went 120 mph. Look at the top never mind here I'll copy and past it here for you You might be surprised to know that this weak junk engine can even make it to 120 mph and it doesn't take 4 mile to do it. see. I have never run this truck up to it's rev limiter and it has never been at 120 mph either. LMAO BTW yes I did know this post would start a poop storm, after all if anyone makes a post that does not put FoMoCo in anything but the brightest light that person has to be swarmed and ridiculed by the all mighty FFBC (Ford Fan Boy Club). Calling all FFBC members, don't look now but someone posted yet another Ram thread, you guys better get over there and start your bash fest. Don

Ram Goes to Stunning 900 lb-ft of torque

The 2016 Ram 3500 breaks the towing record previously held by the old Ram 3500 (at 30,000 pounds) by moving up to 31,210 pounds,more than two tons beyond its closest rival. To get there, Ram went from 12 to 16 hardened bolts on the rear axle ring gear (for all trucks with the 11.8-inch axle), and used stronger materials in the differential case. LINK

RE: Lead, follow or get out of the way!

First lets clear something up there OH48LT the diesel option is not $4000 more we have gone over the math many times so either pull your head out of wherever you keep it or just keep looking like an #$$. Second I just filled up my truck for $2.62 a gallon putting diesel at or under gas! At 27.8 MPG with only 2500 miles on the truck something an EB can't come close to unless you are driving with an egg between the throttle and your foot. There are owners reporting 30 MPH highway running 65 MPH. My mileage was running 70 MPH. Oil changes are coming down, my will cost me under $89 at the dealership and that is using a mopar filter and pennzoil ultra platinum full syn euro blend 5w30. Ford does not have a Ranger they killed it off in 2012. It may be coming back in 2016 we will see. Sales are "Sales are miserable" you say? Funny they sell the allotment in 2 days every month and the ones ordered for stock sell in less then 6 weeks but keep spreading your delusional BS. Don

RE: Too little truck or a bad hitch?

If you are going to be staying mainly in flat terrain and packing on the lighter side you should be OK. However along with being at the upper limit as to weight you are also at the upper limit and maybe over on the wheelbase side of the equation also. E rated tires and a very good WD/sway control system may be just the edge you need to get by for a few more years. As for the 1 & 3 year old we went to Florida with ours at that age. We would leave around 7 PM put Barney on the VCR (full size conversion van) and no worries. Drive non stop to Orlando other than gas, food and potty breaks. Pick up a 16 inch portable dvd player to keep the kids entertained and life is good! Good luck Don
