RE: 1996 dodge v10 & Ford 1999 7.3

Without knowing how he has maintained his trucks it's hard to say. It could be as simple as just needing a new thermostat and antifreeze to needing the whole cooling system gone through. I would start by taking the truck to a radiator shop and have the system flow tested to see if there are any issues. You guys can perform the repairs yourselves when you know what it needs. This would be cheaper in the long run as you would only be replacing what needed fixed. Like Fred said the exhaust brake is not a DYI friendly job. When my Dad had a Jacobs EB added to his 91 Ram CTD they had to replace valve springs also. So unless you have some extensive diesel background I would leave that to the Pros. Don

RE: surge brake activation???

The boat never moved forward at all, it did move backwards about 3 inches. That kind of surprises me as I have 3 inch strips holding the back of the boat to the trailer! Bumpy I was thinking (I know scary right lol) was this truck a model year change? If so it could be in the old location. Just a thought. Don

RE: surge brake activation???

From what I have been reading most of the new boat trailers are either all electric or electric over hydraulic. I was going to convert over to 100% electric but the cost was going to end up being $1,800 by time it was all said and done. With me doing all of the work I had the boat come off the hitch do to a trailer coupling failure! The back coupler boss was worn out and allowed the boat to come off the hitch. The safety chains kept the boat from going anywhere other then into the rear bumper of my truck three times. :M So after 45 minutes I was able to get it back on the truck and towed it 1/4 mile to the plant and dropped it there. Cost me a bumper but at least no one was hurt and the boat stayed with the truck! Up side there was no body damage to the truck just the bumper! Also the breakaway cable was pulled but the brakes never activated causing the boat to slam into the rear of the truck. Another reason I'm going with this system! Electric breakaway system. http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/20160529_135439_zps70chxvqx.jpg height=350 width=600 Don

RE: surge brake activation???

That Hydrastar system should be great for your boat trailer, since it has hydraulic brakes already. Will be an expensive conversion for Bumpy's travel trailer, since he likely doesn't have hydraulic brakes on his trailer. Guess I misread what he was asking about "Unless I can solve my missing brake controller plug issue, is there such a thing as a surge activated device in the receiver that can activate the electric trailer brakes?" I thought he had a trailer with surge brakes and was looking to go to electric. LOL my bad, two many 12 hour days :o It's going to cost me about $900 total with the new trailer coupler and everything needed for the Elc. over Hyd. conversion. But from all the reviews it is the best way to go. Don

RE: surge brake activation???

Not sure if you ordered anything but look at Hydrastar I just ordered the 1000psi unit for my boat along with a breakaway system. Link Don

RE: What rust proofing is best for 11 yr. old Dodge Ram 2500

A couple cans of this stuff sprayed as a DIY. It works great and lasts a year or more. http://www.kellsportproducts.com/images/kit2notext.jpg X2. This is what i use. It is made from lambs wool oil. Not toxic and is safe for plastic and rubber. Needs to be applied yearly, but after the first application it is more like a touch up. I buy it in a gallon and use an air compressor with undercoating gun to apply. The gallon coated a minivan and two full size suvs. Zbart actually has this product or something like it that they can spray areas you will never be able to reach. Beware though it stinks to high heaven for about a week after. I left my truck outside after they applied it to my 04. Don

RE: Navistar to start building GM midsize Vans

I guess since Ford and CAT ended their partnership with Navistar(International) to build their trucks and engines, now GM will being partnering with them to build their midsize vehicles. Navistar to Build Vans for GM Under Long-Term Contract No where does it say they are building engines for GM just building, assembling putting together GM supplied parts? As for what they will be building in the medium truck GM arena. Are they building any? Other then using Isuzu Motors rebadged as Chevy's? LINK LINK to Chevrolet commercial web page What do they make at the Wentzville, Mo plant? OK looks like they build the Express, Savana, Colorado, Canyon. So maybe this move is to open up more production capacity for the new Colorado & Canyon? Still can't find anything as to what mid-size trucks they build there. Unless they are considering the cut away as a mid-size truck? Don Where did I say they are building engines? This was not directed at you, I quoited you to get the link to the story. Others were making comments about the Ford/Navistar engine partnership. Sorry for the confusion should have made it clearer. Don

RE: Wait... What?

Honestly if someone needs to haul some mulch fire wood or whatever that would make for a good little truck. I like how the wheel wells are kept very small allowing for a much flatter load area. As for the drop test it is what it is, not sure why the comments about the box came up. One can make the conclusion that if those blocks didn't harm the bed an empty tool box sure wouldn't. Don

RE: surge brake activation???

Surge brakes are not generally electric they are hydraulic using a master cylinder activated by the coupling sliding forward as the tow vehicle stops. My boat trailer has them and I'm going to convert the whole system over to electric. What is wrong with your currant system? If it's something in wiring take it to a automotive electrical shop that can trace the problem down. Don

RE: Just for fun - Dented Ford F150 beds or .........

Don. Just put him on block. If everyone did that he could post for himself to read. Ready. Set. Go. No one respond to his posts. Maybe he will go away. Sure go ahead.... But most of my responses have been directed towards the hatred just like yours. :R Sorry Tory but that just does float, I have never not one time posted the hatred like you do pal. I have never disrespected anyone's new truck purchase. But yet you do it time and time again. Facts are facts Troy you are a little boy trapped in a mans body. Funny how most of you claim I'm the one that doesn't have the facts but the fact is Ford has a very good truck now the safest (2016 and one 2015) on the road. There flaw is making a truck bed out of a aluminum to save weight. My guess is they could not make the inside of the bed out of steel with aluminum outer fenders cost effectively do to the dissimilar metals. So they compromised their trucks integrity just to save a few pounds. It's now going to come back to bit them in the butt and they are going to have to address it or they WILL loss sales. The sad part is some of their fanboys just can't admit it. My truck may have the lowest payload at 1050 some pounds but it's going to take a lot more than a empty tool to punch a hole in the the bed. BTW there are guys out there tow 9000#+ RV's both TT's and Fiver's with this weakling truck. Don

RE: Beer can pickups

One I didn't rest it and snap a pic that was running down the road after about an hour but whatever makes you feel better Bobbyboy. Second I would think the Ram would fair as good as the GM or better since GM chose to leave it out. And lastly sorry little boy but I'm far from "insecure" about my truck. I bought the best truck for what I needed a truck to too and that was the Ram. The same reason month after month Ram keeps gaining market shear. Funny you should default to the "Government Motors" comments but you clowns always for get Ford got their share of Government money too. Your starting to look more and more like Tory all the time Bobby. Which is not a very good look. Don

RE: Just for fun - Dented Ford F150 beds or .........

Looking at Don's last 11 post were all attacking Ford... Most??? be a lot of butt hurt. http://i1167.photobucket.com/albums/q624/FishOnOne/daily-afternoon-randomness-photos-271_zpsgp1hiu40.jpg width=600 Wow from the guy that posts this! your a class act there Troy clASS act! in a "Picking up new truck tomorrow " Personally I would bite the bullet and get the one in the pic. $1,159 from trailer to Tweety's. Maybe someone can chime in, can you use the 20K Companion with the gooseneck portion of the RAM Factory puck system? If so that would be less expensive and still high quality. Curt is made in China, REESE ic China/Mexico if that matters. They are both harder to hitch than the B&W. I'll chime in... That Mexican made truck and that Mexican made Reese hitch look like a match made in heaven. :W LINK Don

RE: Just for fun - Dented Ford F150 beds or .........

....... Me I'll take a higher quality burger and truck thank you very much. Don Yeah, the crash results show that don't they? :) So your not going to be driving that Ferd you list in your signature then? You must have a new 2016 F150 on order right? Otherwise your and ever other owner of any Ford but one 2015 F150 is rated just like my Ram in the safety tests. Facts suck don't they! LMAO Thank God I made it to work with my feet still intact tonight. Don This is my average after 37 miles at 60 mph. Hahaha and that's with a bed that won't get a hole in it from dropping a empty tool box in it. http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/20160609_105744_zpsuexhbx3n.jpg height=750 width=550

RE: Just for fun - Dented Ford F150 beds or .........

You can dent any truck if you try hard enough. If that fails you can manufacture a problem where one doesn't exist. Yet each month the 1. is beside the Ford F Series Great marketing on Fords part, call all of your trucks F-Series then report the sales as if it was one. Sorry but some of us are a bit smarter to fall for that. Do you also buy only McDonald's hamburgers? After all they sell the most burgers so by your logic they are the very best burger out there right gypsy? Me I'll take a higher quality burger and truck thank you very much. Don

RE: Military grade aluminum LOL

:) Hi, you remind me of a guy I met decades ago who said he didn't like Fords and that his experience with Chevys was much better. When I asked about his experiences with these two brands of cars, this is what he told me. "My first car was a Ford. It was twenty years old and very troublesome. I paid $50.00 for it." "My next car was a Chevy; It was two years old and problem free. I'll be making payments on the Chevy for three more years." You remind me of this guy every time you cry about your Ford experiences. Wow really, we have never met and all of my Ford's were brand new and cost me and my wife a lot of hard earned money. The fact that Ford took my money and sold me junk gives me the right to "cry about my Ford experiences". Just like people do about their experiences or their bothers, uncle's sister neighbor :W. You do know if you don't like a post you can just scroll right on by it don't you. Don
