RE: Trailer hub temp question

Hi. You may want to look on line. Each mfr. will establish a range for there bearings. The bearing on the sunny side may run warmer than the shadow side. But a range of 120 to 160 should be OK. Anything over 180 or a spike in temp. is the start of trouble. Remember to re-grease every two years or any time you feel maybe its time. Its better to service bearings, than sit along side the road because bearing failure. have a good time!

RE: 2007 ram 2500 4x4 durability

Hello Is there a maintenance history available? Any time you buy used there will be a suitability issue. I put 288,000 miles on my 96 Ram and spent 4,500 to rebuild the V-10 that was in it. I know the history of this truck.

RE: GM 2500 ball joint UPDATE

Hi. Have you had the joints inspected? Are they tight? Are the wheels true? Are they lube capable? Has the maintenance been keep up? Do you suspect a problem other than mileage? One final question do you curb hop? If the answers are more positive, then you shouldn't have any problems. I replace mine at 240,+++ miles mostly the was very slow to recover from a hole or dip in the road (bottoming out). First was the "A" frame bushings (U/L)(R/L), at the same time the Ball joints also (L/R) (L/U), then tie rod ends some time later.

RE: SRW vs DRW MPG

Hi. Why are so interested in fuel mileage? You are towing another vehicle thats (dead weight). The higher you go less mileage you get.

RE: Dodge V10 owners...how do you like it?

Hi. I still have my '96 ram 2500hd, V-10, It now has disc brake's all four corners. This July I will rebuild the power plant, 286,+ miles. Well its July 21, 2014. The Dodge went in for the engine repair with 286,438 miles. Two week from now I will get it back with a new heart (engine). Needs Painting, Seats covers, 3 dent's meed some attention, and the rear bumper. Hay what do you expect after 17 years on the California's highways. OK! NOTE: Since MPG has been referenced. Starting 13.8, 13.9, and 14.0 that is 1996. Ok! Now mostly 11.5 to 14.0. Depending on where I happen to be at the time. With the 31' 5th Whl. Again when and where I was, it ranged for 10.0 to 12.4 mpg. I got the truck to TOW! I really didn't care about mileage. I didn't want to add or modify it (gas-oil-water) and go. It did keep me at road speed (legal) W/O anything else done. Subject Oil Changes: Yes! Every 3,000 miles or as close to it as possible.

RE: Brake Question - 2005 Dodge 2500 2x4

Hello Issue: Have you check the rotors for glazing. I have run into this problem twice. I also ran into a problem one with heat checking of rotor faces (front only). The biggest problem for me was the brake system was to little for the truck, and load requirement. Brake system was changed to correct.
