RE: Back into a truck

Good for you IB, what sucks is I just threw away left and right ABS sensors (used from a job I did) last week that I bet would have worked for you. Wife told me I had to clean out the garage and get rid of anything I didn't need. The sensors don't cost that much and are easy to replace. Good luck with the truck! Don

RE: New lawsuit against Cummins/FCA

Chris yes the Michelin tires are fully siniped. Have to say they grip the road in wet conditions like none of the other tires I tried. I tried Cooper's and Yokohama's both had lossy wet traction. Don

RE: New lawsuit against Cummins/FCA

Mileage probably didn't drop at all because the new tires have more tread left with means a larger diameter tire which results in fewer revolutions per mile driven being shown on the odometer for the distance driven divided by the fuel used which then will show less mile per gallon numbers. Still traveled the same distance with the worn tires which had turned more times per mile due to the now smaller worn tire diameter to the road. Easily can make a 3%+ difference in hand calculated MPG's just like going to a larger diameter tire sixe does in altering perceived MPG's or actual speed driven. That could have played some part however the truck was making 27/28 MPG @ 77 MPH just before the tire change and now I'm down to 24/25 MPG. We just did a trip to Cocoa Beach and the best I could get was 25 MPG and in the Mountains it dropped to 23 MPG :M . But the truck would make that 27 MPG @ 77 MPH new so not sure what has caused the drop in mileage. I called GDE and they told me they have seen this on other trucks they do tunes on also, like the Colorado diesel they are testing.

RE: New lawsuit against Cummins/FCA

How many people have changed their factory tires? I went from the cactory Goodyear's to Michelin's and my mileage dropped by 2/3 miles per gallon! So good luck winning any lawsuit for loss of fuel mileage. Don

RE: Frontal area for travel trailers

I towed right at the limit with my 2002 Ram 1500 4.7 3.92 and it was not a fun time at all (about 800# over the rating). The truck did it but it was also taking all it had to do it. All you are doing if you have to push your vehicle to the limits is kill it in very short order. As for not having to worry about over heating a manual trans you might want to rethink that stance. You can over heat a manual easier then an auto and you will not even know you are doing it! Don

RE: Frontal area for travel trailers

I have a 2016 Nissan Frontier 4 cyl 2WD and want to tow a Jayco that weighs 2300 # with a frontal area of 63 square ft. Any ideas about the feasibility of this? The owner's manual states a limit of 30 square ft frontal area. Only a pop up would meet this criteria. Any advice? Since that trailer is just over double the manufactures rating the answer in No it is not feasible. Unless you want to destroy your vehicle. Your only other option is a Hi/Lo trailer or Pop Up.

RE: Dang hay bales !!

Years ago I was following a van on I-75 near Tampa. Alluva sudden the van swerved to miss a recliner sitting in the middle of our lane. I hit it with my '75 Dodge Maxivan. The chair exploded into splinters and it's flimsy steel parts. No damage to the my van. In '95 we hit a folding table on I-75. It tore the underliner of our '94 Aljo TT. I agree about not trying to swerve while towing unless there's plenty of room to do so safely. Glad the hay bale wasn't a roll! I hit a dresser on I-75 in Florida with the Cougar in tow. Was our maiden voyage with the trailer. Truck in front swerved at the last minute and there it was in front of us. Hit the brakes and ended up driving right through it. Didn't do any damage to the truck or trailer but sure gave everyone an OHSH!T moment lol. Do agree with you as to staying in your lane though. Don

RE: 6.4 Dodge???

I'm on several "motor sports" forums and I can say the oil opinions and conspiracy theories are definitely the strongest here. Good job boys! ??? who has conspiracy theories?

RE: 6.4 Dodge???

Troy can't get the link to post for some reason. I have had this issue here on this site from time to time. But Pennzoil makes the oil and is widely available Pennzoil 0W-40 Walmart sells it, Auto Zone, Napa and more. Now as to what other oil manufactures sell an oil the meets the MS12633 spec that I don't know. I ran into this when Ram came out with the EcoD also. But now there are many other companies selling oil that meets the new spec for it. My guess is this will be the same with the 6.4. Don

RE: 6.4 Dodge???

Troy not sure why you think the oil is hard to find, it is not. Not sure why you think the oil is is hard to locate Troy. FCA recommends Pennzoil 0W-40 Chrysler MS12633 (SRT) (SAE 0W-40) but as long as the oil meets the MS12633 spec you are good. Her is a link to all of the FCA oil specs Any auto parts store and most stores that sell oil will have this. Don

RE: RAM 6.4 Ike Gauntlet

Yep funny when the moved the truck forward (so they claimed) the sway went away. They are a joke and have been for awhile now. Shows how easy they can be bought. Don

RE: Dang hay bales !!

My cousin hit a moose on his Harley up by Sudbury Canada. Is he alive?He was killed instantly. We never had a family reunion on Mom's side of the family. He had put together the reunion and we were all on our way to that. Instead we went to a funeral. He was traveling on a rainy night came around a corner and hit the moose. Sorry to hear that. When I rode bikes I was way more frightened of animals than humans. Sorry for your loss colliehauler.

RE: Which Choice? For the Ram folks out there

That is a step price for a 2001 even mint! I sold my 2004 that was mint back in 2014 with 150K for $18,500 and was told by the guy that bought it he would have paid $21,000 for it. Like your guy I had all records and if I didn't do the work the service was done at the dealership. Would think you should be able to get him down some, unless he really doesn't want to sell the truck. Don

RE: Dang hay bales !!

Glad you weren't injured and only minor damage to the truck! Went to pass a big rig on US23 at the Ohio/Mich border and low and behold sitting right in the middle of the left lane was a spare tire rim and all. Since it was raining and there was no where other then the center median to go to I hit it. Bent the drive shaft but that is better then losing it in a wet median. DD was sleeping in the passenger side and it scared her half to death! Don

RE: RAM 6.4 Ike Gauntlet

Well it looks like Nutz got his answer to the so called Ram inflated numbers and GM's so called "true numbers". Ram has always under rated their trucks unlike GM and Ford. Ram does not strip out their trucks so they can over inflate their EPA ratings unlike GM and Ford. Care to comment on that Nutz? I can post the links that show what items (it is long BTW) GM and Ford remove before they do their testing. I have said over and over that all of the Big Three make great trucks. Unlike some of our resident fan boys I don't hate the other two. I have only had issues with Ford vehicles and yes it was a long time ago! But after getting burned three times (in a row mind you) they will never get another chance. Even if I didn't work for FCA. I was actually offered a job as a Die Maker with Ford but turned it down mostly because we had just built a new home and I didn't want to drive 80 miles one way everyday seven days a week! Three months later I went to work for Chrysler in in Perrysburg. Don

RE: RAM 6.4 Ike Gauntlet

The Ram fished the run @ 13.20 minutes if you guys watch the video going down the hill the Ram looks to be running it at 53 MPH and the Chevy is running it a 60 MPH. Now we don't get to see the speed very often so who knows but that could be where the time difference comes in. So since Nuts loves to play Mr. Engineer tell us how two trucks one having 410 HP & 429 of TQ can get beat by a truck with 360 HP and 380 of TQ with both running 4.10 gears. You may also note that the Chevy lost 1600 RPM's every time it up shifted!!! They even noted that the Chevy could barely hold 30 MPH near the end of the run! And yet it beat the truck that was running 40 MPH at the end? Lets hear it Mr. Engineer or any others that can explain this!

RE: RAM 6.4 Ike Gauntlet

That was my point, the Ram had a better showing time wise but not by much. A naturally aspirated engine is not going to do will pull that grade period. My beef is with the fact that they have yet to run a 6.2 f250. All three are going to run the same and without fully disclosing the specs of each truck this is nothing more then a waste of data! Also they used a ball trailer on the Ram then started talking about the sway never mind he was turning the wheel back and forth or he had the truck loaded incorrectly (his own words!). Nope they used to have some decent tests but now they have gotten too big for their britches IMO. Don

RE: Chevy 6.0 Super Ike Gauntlet

I haven't seen this test for the Ford 6.2, is there one? was it comparable to the Ram and GM? An older 6.2 version. The 6.2 Ford rips! Nope there isn't, makes you wonder why doesn't it? Also as I post in the Ram 2500 HD gas post by the #1 Ram hater tollboy um I mean troyboy. These guys are nothing but a bunch of clowns. If you are going to post a video of how the 2500 HD gas trucks preform (and lack of f250) you should at least do it the same way. But then you would have to be willing to let the chips fall where they may. BTW when you start promoting a book signing on your videos you lose all credibility. Que the music.....Send in the clowns! LOL Don.

RE: RAM 6.4 Ike Gauntlet

Funny part is (and I called them out on it) if they are going to test the Ram 2500 HD gas and the GMC 2500 HD gas, why didn't they test the Ford F250 SD gas? Maybe they did and it preformed so poorly that they didn't want to piss Ford off? Just saying Troy. Also called them out on the fact that the Ram was a bumper pull towing a Ford with a water tote in the bed but the GMC was a fifth wheel with two water totes on the trailer at each end. They are becoming just another bunch of clowns getting free trucks to beat on with mindless clowns eating their dribble up. Don

RE: 2016 SRW GMC 3500 Denali HD vs. Ambition AB-38FB - Thoughts?

So then you buy a set of take offs from a vehicle specific site with tires and wheels and use them for towing. But what makes think 20" wheels are not rated for the same? According to Tire Rack 20" have the same load rating as the 18" which is the stock wheel for his truck. Don
