RE: Another blow out!

As was suggested, an upgrade to LT225/75r16 E might be a good solution for you as its only 1" OD larger so should fit without issue (I'd measure to make sure you have enough space though) and provide a few hundred pounds more load capacity as well so it's a solid upgrade.

RE: Blackbear tune

I've heard that they are the equal to 5star tuning in the GM world....

RE: TT to a 5Th Wheel

Absolutely. Better towing, much easier to hitch and unhitch, more storage, both inside and basement, higher ceilings. everything I think - add to this shorter length while towing then same length TT so its easier to fit in parking lots and such.

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 I'm sorry, but I fail to see how a bad design or overall quality of product from an era long ago has any relevance to the product available now. Name the brand that you like, they have all had era's of junky or problematic products, and if we all had your mentality what the heck would we be driving? Ford, Dodge, GM and the rest have all produced junk at one point or another.

RE: Military grade aluminum LOL

You Ram and GM boys need to review the crash test before denouncing the "military grade aluminum" Ford. Pickup crash test. Measures taken from the crash test dummy in all but the F-150 indicated a likelihood of serious lower leg, ankle and foot injuries. "Drivers in these pickups would need help freeing their legs from the wreckage following a small overlap crash. My sympathies when they are trying to free your feet and legs from the wreckage of your trucks with a poor rating. DANG!!!:E..So even those of us who said nothing negative about Ford, it appears as though you're actually hoping we who own a Chevy/GM or Ram may have a wreck and WILL have to be cut out of our trucks with feet and legs mangled..Just my perception of your statement...Pretty sick to the point of being hateful and spiteful, over something as silly as talking about truck beds?!? Who really cares??...Every brand gets slammed in these forums, but very few talk about someone needing to be cut out of their truck with morbid injuries to their feet and legs.....it's gotten that bad:? Jim the facts are right there in the Video, how is that spiteful?

RE: Military grade aluminum LOL

You can always find ways to make every brand look bad, just adjust the "test" to suit your strength and their weakness. In all fairness every contractor I know has: 1. Spray in bedliner 2. drop in bedliner 3. a bed mat 4. a piece or plywood Treating a truck bed like the one from a commercial dump truck will destroy every brand, not jus the aluminum ford beds. This test is a loser, I give it very little merit because of that.

RE: Looking at my first diesel

I own a 2013 super duty with the 6.7, mine has been good to date but I believe maintenance and how it was driven do come into play - I will say that you pretty much never hear of fuel pump failures are issues locally, only what I read online (mostly stateside).

RE: Pros/Cons Chevy vs. Ford 1 Ton Diesel 4x4

despite what the internet says, all three are great choices and should provide years of great service. I'm in the construction supply business and get to talk to truck owners of all brands and everybody has their favorite brand, however most if it seems to boil down to where they get the best service and that's what they buy. I drive Fords as my local dealer is a pleasure to deal with and they really go the extra mile for the customer. I was really much more of a GM truck guy back in the day too - in 2011 I ended up with an F150 and also a Chevy Equinox for the wife, two years later she drives a ford due to the excessive amount of issues with the equinox and the extremely poor service from the local GM dealership. I have no direct experience with the Ram brand, but a lot of my customers have 1/2 ton rams and are quite happy with them, I'd imagine the 3/4 and 1 ton are just as good.

RE: Dreams do come true...

I've got a garage big enough to park my unit in as well, only problem is 1 Grand National, 1 Mustang, 1 37 Plymouth coupe and a John deere tractor that take up all the space!

RE: Your Rig

Traded our Montana 346 LBQ for a 2016 KZ Durango 2500 D349BHQ. We gave up the outside kitchen for a second slide in the bunk room. Each slide has a sleeper sofa and fold down bunk with cabinets and TV across the rear wall. This will make a great den after the kids grow up. The Auto Leveler is awesome. http://i.imgur.com/KenWwxSl.jpg At the dealer getting my G-rated tires swapped. http://i.imgur.com/AHuqCKFl.jpg At home http://i.imgur.com/bK2mCGql.jpg Setup in camp driveway and now all the fun of loading the stuff we took out of the other one. nice unit! its the full sized version of mine. Looked at one of those at the time too but felt it was too much for my truck. Beautiful layout though.

RE: how much pin box movement is normal?

took the measurements from the points that the Lippert sheet stated and I'm getting less than 1/8" from sitting on the landing gear to sitting on the hitch in difference on one side and 1/4" on the other side. this is the form I'm referring to: http://rvman.net/temp/LippertUpper-Deck-Flex-Measurement-Instructions.pdf

RE: ladder

I'm 6'2" and 220lbs, mine seems to be nice and secure but like everything else on RV's I'm sure it will fail.

RE: how much pin box movement is normal?

just spoke to my dealer service guy, he pulled out the Lippert upper deck frame flex info and offered to measure it for me or let me do it myself. I told him about the movement I had been seeing and roughly the measurements. He was not overly concerned as that seems to be inline with what Lippert and some of the manufacturers alow for. He did ask me about any caulking that was cracked or cracking, cracks in the fibeglass or any of the interior panels/cabinets or elsewhere. I checked everything very carefully on Monday and could not see anything that was out of place. I'll take the measurements and follow up with him so he can see what KZ says.

how much pin box movement is normal?

I see this posted somewhat but I can't get a clear answer - my unit it still basically new I noticed that then I hook it up the distance from the bottom of the front cap and the pin box (checked pin box torque and its right on)gets closer by about 3/8" - 1/2" and while driving I can see about another equal amount of movement - I have one of those pin mount RV levelers mounted up there and its actually slightly scraped on the bottom of the front cap and the measurement is exactly 5/8" as far as I can tell. I'm going to hook up the truck tonight and take some pictures and measurements. here's a picture of the said level gauge that really helps me see the movement: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v391/tuned20v/2016-04-17%2015.01.51_zpsbc7sqaqj.jpg Alex

RE: Good ole BlowMax tires

every time I see pictures like this it makes me happy I got rid of my Freestar tires right out of the gate.

RE: truck tire choices

I run Duratracs in the winter, too loud for summer use imo, I run Toyo AT 2 right now and have been pleased.

RE: Ecoboost question

had this problem in my early build 2011, new intercooler as part of the recall or TSB or whatever it was and never experienced the issue again, FWIW I only had a problem with it during one instance, ready up and found the TSB and had the dealer put in the newer parts.

RE: Second Gen 3.5 EcoBoost and 10 Speed Transmission

Honestly, give me the Ecoboost with the current 6 speed than, worthy upgrade over the 6.2 imo, at least in the SRW trucks.
