RE: I guess I will be driving a new Ford tomorrow

OMG really, what part of "Yes it is a good engine, heck even a great engine. But Bullet proof it is not! Just like anything made in large numbers under high volume there will be the occasional bad engine coming off ANY assembly line. Ford's plants are no different then any other car companies.". As to posting a link, that was done because otherwise I would hear, where's you proof. GM, FCA and every other manufacture has engine failures. It is a fact of life, how it is dealt with is the question. Don So by.....buy WTF you want.

RE: Billet Fuel Cap for Ram CTD?

Anyone using the aftermarket billet aluminum gas cap with o-ring on the later Ram Cummins trucks? Looks like a good idea to replace the little red plastic cap which can blow away if you set it on the tonneau cover! They're all over Amazon and Ebay This is a plastic cap with a tether from Mopar. Cost is around 17 bucks. http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/20161014_035332_zpss2rjzodv.jpg height=300 width=500

RE: I guess I will be driving a new Ford tomorrow

Glade they are getting you back on the road sooner then six weeks! As for the guys that think this engine is bullet proof you might want to slow down on the Blue Kool-Aid a bit! Yes it is a good engine, heck even a great engine. But Bullet proof it is not! LINK to 6.2 Engine Failures Just like anything made in large numbers under high volume there will be the occasional bad engine coming off ANY assembly line. Ford's plants are no different then any other car companies. It is quantity first then they worry about quality. We have a Toolmaker that took his two week vacation and started a job at a Ford plant. After one week he told them to "take their job and shove it" and came back to work for FCA. He will tell you "if you think FCA is screwed up try working for Ford. They are a joke!". This is not BS and as you will note in the last quote he said he thinks FCA is screwed up too! And before you go thinking GM is better I know first hand how GM is run. My Dad put in over thirty years at the Toledo Powertrain plant. He would come home and tell me stories that would make you turn red with anger. He drove Fords most of the time he worked at GM and bought a 91 Ram after he retired not a GM. He does like his Cadillac's though LOL So stop beat the drums boys because if any of you knew what really goes on in the auto plants you would by a horse and buggy! Don

RE: Off Road Mashup: ZR2 vs Raptor vs Power Wagon

Back in the day I ran Dodge Ram Chargers and took them off roading with some buddies of mine. The only thing that could out do my Ram was a buddies fj40. That thing was a beast in any off road environment. Heck he could forge water over the hood. I had to make up a cover to protect the stupid ballast resistor from getting wet and stopping the truck dead in the water! The one thing I noticed is Ram is the only one that has a shield protecting the fuel tank. Found that a bit strange. I also don't understand why they didn't use the Ram Rebel instead of the Power Wagon. No the Rebel does not the same off road components that the Raptor and Power Wagon have. But neither does the GM ZR2. Here is a sisde be side test of the Power Wagon and the Rebel. The Reble did very well. http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2017/05/can-a-ram-rebel-keep-up-with-a-power-wagon-in-the-arizona-desert-.html Still think it came down to the tries on the Power Wagon myself Don

RE: Off Road Mashup: ZR2 vs Raptor vs Power Wagon

I just want to know who would take an almost $70K truck off road? I don't like taking my truck back in the woods on a flat trail lol. Would like to see Ram put some wider and better tires tires on the Power Wagon along with trim some weight from that pig! Over seven thousand pounds! Holly Hypodermic Bat Man :E Don

RE: I guess I will be driving a new Ford tomorrow

OK I have to ask, how can it take 30 days before they can even get started on it. I mean after all, all we hear on this site is how all of the Ford guys never have to take their trucks in for warranty service, ever. Heck we have guys claiming they are still running their factory brake pads and rotors after 150K miles! This dealer must only have one or two service bays....that has to be it. All kidding aside, as carringb posted, file a notice of intent under the lemon law and see how fast Ford gets your truck fixed for you! This is for Washington States Lemon Law site. Link to PDF What is a "Lemon"? Your vehicle may qualify as a "lemon" if it has one or more significant defects that have been subject to a "reasonable number of attempts" to diagnose or repair defect(s) covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. The law covers only defects that "substantially impair" the use, value, or safety of the motor vehicle. A manufacturer is required to repurchase or replace a vehicle with a "nonconformity" or "serious safety defect" after a "reasonable number of attempts" to diagnose or repair the vehicle have occurred when requested by a consumer. A Lemon Law arbitrator can determine if a consumer’s request is justified under the Lemon Law’s standards. At an arbitration hearing, the arbitrator will expect to receive proof of a consumer’s claim for each defect that occurred in your vehicle including the type and the claim categories. 4. Days Out-of-Service Days out-of-service are accumulated during attempts to diagnose or repair one or more "nonconformities" or "serious safety defects." The vehicle has been out of service due to diagnosis or repair meeting this claim category when: •A total of 30 or more cumulative calendar days for diagnosis or repairs have occurred •At least 15 of the days occurred during the period of the manufacturer’s written warranty and during the "eligibility period" • To add to cumulative days out-of-service a nonconformity or serious safety defect must have been subject to diagnosis or repair at least once during the "eligibility period Don

RE: Center Console Swap

Are you sure that didn't change with the 2014 MY builds? I know the 2017 SLT and up use a dial selector not a floor shifter for the four wheel drive system. The Tradesman still has a floor selector though. So as long as the truck has the dial selector on the dash and not the floor shifter, you should be able to swap in the bucket seats and full consule. I know you can do it in the 1500 trucks because we have guys that have done it. The HD trucks are still running the column shifter so you might have to limit yourself to just those trucks? But I would think a full consule and seats form a 1500 would still work though. Don

RE: Center Console Swap

Yes you can do a swap. You should post on a Ram forum like maybe http://www.ramforumz.com/. We have had a few guys meet up and do the swap on the http://www.ram1500diesel.com/forum/forum.php site. You can swap with any Ram from 2014 up, just make sure they have the same equipment as you. Don

Ouch, but then you will have a better tow vehicle with the 6.2L.

RE: Windy day reveals the 2019 Ram 1500...

Somebody at FCA really messed up. Those probably should never have been outside without their camo even if they were covered. The pics have been on Allpar for three weeks now. The trucks are due to hit the dealers late January. I think they knew what they were doing. ;) Don

RE: Ram or Toyota

You guys know that, the 5.0 Cummins engine was designed for the Ram back in 2004 for MY 2007 don't you? ****-Liar requested Cummins build a small V8 diesel for the 1500 Ram but when diesel fuel prices went though the roof they walked away from it. Cummins sued us and the Germans had to pay the RD costs for it. It had been sitting on Cummins shelf for years. When Fred Diaz (was told to leave) left FCA to go to Nissan, less then a year later Nissan announced they where coming out with a 1500 truck equipped with the 5.0 Cummins. Coincidence, I think not. I have a friend that has a Cummins equipped Nissan and wishes he never bought it. Besides the thing being a dog it is a fuel hog to boot. He said it is worse then his any of his Ford HD trucks. Don

RE: Ram or Toyota

AS other have said drive them both or all five and find what you like. Unless you are going to be trading up in TT's within four years you don't need a 250/2500. The ride in all 250/2500, except the Ram will be rough. The Ram 2500 has rear coils like the 1500 Rams and ride more like a car unloaded. Good luck. Don

RE: Ram or Toyota

Not sure what Ram you were looking at with a 5.7 and a six speed but all of the 5.7 trucks come with a 8 speed trans not a 6 speed. Now the 3.6 V6 can be ordered in the two lowest trim lines with a 6 speed but as soon as you go with the Big Horn and up trim they can only be ordered with a 8 speed also. What trim line were you pricing out? Don

RE: 2016 Ram 2500 stuck in 4th gear

The 68RFE is no different than the Ford or GM transmissions when you add a tuner box to the truck. They all will fail if pushed past there intended limits. That is the number one reason GM couldn't add anymore HP/TQ to their trucks, the Ally they use (Allison 1000) was at it's limit. They fixed that for the 2017 MY though. Don

Well that stinks! Better upload all of my photos before June in case they try to up the costs. Thanks for the heads up guys! Don

RE: Are you happy with your HP.

I'm not understanding something here :h I have the ad free basic package not sure about the cost but it is a once a year fee under ten bucks. I can link my pics to RV.net without any problems. Are you saying in June my basic membership will end?

RE: Are you happy with your HP.

Proper term is grain leg. I have one almost that long (high) and I pull it with a quad. Some of these augers can get a little heavy for a quad...this one is over 11000 lbs and has 1500 lbs of tongue weight: https://i.imgur.com/TLBGkbsl.jpg "border=0" http://bit.ly/1jtQSidClick For Full-Size Image. height=600 Part of the reason I started this thread was to figure out how to post pictures on the forum now that Photobucket doesn't work. I see my pictures are posted as clickable links.....how do I just post an image? Photobucket works fine for me. Just copy the direct link, click on the IMG tab, than past it in the URL line. add in the height and width. Max is 750 X 750 and you are done. This is 400 X 500 http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/20170909_172247_zpsnft7a9wn.jpg height=400 width=500
