RE: Speed is not your friend

Arizona really needs to reduce their speed limits to 65. Too many people doing 85-95.

RE: 2011 Ram 2500 6.7 tow capacity?

Ford/GM/Dodge should really just stop putting the diesel in the 250/2500 trucks. Equip them only with the gas engine. Put the diesel in the 350/3500 trucks. That would solve alot of lack of payload problems with the class 2 trucks right there.

RE: 2011 Ram 2500 6.7 tow capacity?

...Or, you could just buy a 3500 truck, and not have to 'upgrade' anything to get the weight rating you need... Sometimes the simplest solution is the most overlooked... :w

RE: Electrical Problem

Sounds like a blown fuse, caused by whatever electrical short is resulting in the burning smell. If it's coming through the vents with the A/C on, it could be the resistor inside the heater box. Beware... that resistor likely caused the fire that burned one of my F350's to the ground.... http://i300.photobucket.com/albums/nn7/desertrider33/2015-06-17_17-39-04_357.jpg width=640 http://i300.photobucket.com/albums/nn7/desertrider33/2015-06-18_13-58-09_921.jpg width=640

RE: F250 Payload

Forget about the F250 if you want a crew cab 4x4 diesel. The payload is all used up by the crew cab, the 4wd and diesel. Get the F350 instead.

RE: 6 door truck

If GM would put the Duramax diesel in the Suburban/YukonXL, they would sell a gaggle of them I'm sure. Ford has their head up their arse. They think the F150 takes the place of the Ranger, and the Expedition EL takes the place of the Excursion, and the Euro Transit van takes the place of the Econoline vans. That's a big H3LL NO! Businesses aren't buying the Transit much. They're still buying the Econoline, while it's still available. Once the Econoline is gone, they'll be buying Chevy/GMC vans. Businesses and private folks who want a small truck aren't buying the F150, they're buying the Tacoma. Ford gave away all those Ranger sales to Toyota. How lucky for Toyota. And those who want a 3/4-ton large SUV with a big engine, well, you're SOL if you don't find a good used one.

RE: Speed is not your friend

I see it all the time, folks going way too fast, including trucks and trailers. I just hope that, after they pass me, they have the accident far enough ahead of me that I'm not also involved in it.

RE: 6 door truck

Looks like the cab to axle length (using the back of a regular 2 door cab as the measuring point) is probably somewhere between 8 and 9 feet. If it was a commercial flatbed truck, that would equate to a truck with about a 14 foot flatbed and a regular 2 door cab. With a 4wd front axle, that would take awhile to turn for sure.

RE: Hot water heater bang

Too much propane is collecting before the igniter sparks it off. Like when you open the bbq grill valve and then the igniter won't light and then after a few tries it finally lights and BOOM! you get a big ball of fire in the bbq that singes your hair, if you happen to be looking over it when it goes off.

RE: Tow vehicle tire pressure

Most dually pickups (except those running 19.5" wheels) can run the rears at 65 psi loaded, since the 4 rear tires' combined load capacity usually far exceeds the truck's rear axle weight rating.

RE: Still can't decide between DRW or SRW?

The independent front suspension of GM trucks does ride smoother/softer than the solid axle front ends of 4wd Fords and Dodges. Ford did improve it some when they changed from leaf springs to coil springs up front on the 4wds. It's just the nature of a solid axle, versus independent a-arms.

RE: 2011 Ram "Death Wobble"

As long as the front end is all tight and in alignment, it should be fine.

RE: 6 door truck

Nice truck but all that work and money and it still only has a 6 foot bed.

RE: Help identify the make, year, model of this trailer

You may be able to narrow down the approximate year by what appliances are in it. Get model numbers and contact the appliance manufacturers (if they're still in business) to find out when they made those models.

RE: I have a weird pin box- tilts side to side

I agree, home made, and not very good welding. Interesting idea though and apparently it works.
