RE: Big truck woes

been there done that. went from a 29ft Light TT to a 32ft 3 slide beast (6500lbs vs 10000lbs) and tried towing with the F150, while it had enough power and brakes, the chassis was too light and soft. the F250 cured that.

RE: Bye bye 6 4L Hemi and RV :(

IB, all the material stuff can be replaced later on, take care of the kids, they matter most in these situations.

RE: 2015 Ford V-6 Ecoboost vs V8

I pulled a 7K/30ft TT for three summers with my 2011 F150 Ecoboost Max Tow and it performed flawlessly - it was too lightweight for my new trailer though. I will say that the EB pulled my new TT nearly as effortlessly as my 6.7 Diesel does although at about 1/2 the fuel economy. If the EB was available in the F250 as an optional engine I'd opt for that over the diesel simply for reduced maintenance costs and similar performance at a much lower cost of entry. I'm 100% sold on the Ecoboost 3.5 as a proper light duty towing engine. That's incredible testimony. I hope I can find it and re-read when I get the bug for a diesel. don't get me wrong, I love the 6.7 but the true Gem is the actual super duty truck itself, it tows much better than a 1/2 ton. Give me an F250 with a 3.5 EB and i'm sold.

RE: New F350 this week

great looking truck, one of the better looking colors in my book. You're going to enjoy the 6.7, it's quiet and such a workhorse.

RE: 2,000+ Miles, 10,000lb TT, F250 Gasser

doing around 65-70mph on the long part of I95 in northern maine I got around 10.2mpg hand calculated with my setup which is about identical to your but the Diesel version of your truck.

RE: HD truck aftermarket shock options?

I threw on 5100's when my truck was a few weeks old, they are great for the money and far better than the stock units the truck came with.

RE: First trip with new trailer/truck

nice looking combo, you'll be extremely happy with the truck and hitch, I've got several thousand miles on my setup now and I wouldn't tow without one now.

RE: Workhorse to Re-enter Class A Chassis Market

this is great news for the industry, more options and competition breeds innovation and updates. Hopefully this forces ford to throw a beefier version of the Ecoboost in their F53 chassis, I for one think that would make a great option with all that low end torque.

RE: Will it ever end

I feel like its been the longest winter of my life - we've got so much snow I don't know where to put it anymore! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v391/tuned20v/2015-03-18%2017.13.12_zpsfexrbdwr.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v391/tuned20v/IMG_1769_zps48bf909d.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v391/tuned20v/IMG_1765_zpsc7ed2ed3.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v391/tuned20v/2015-02-15%2014.18.24_zpswf2j3uht.jpg

RE: Tires...other than RV...

I replace tires on everything every 6 years or when they get worn, which ever comes first. It's a safety thing in my mind.

RE: BIG TT - thoughts please

we tow a 9800 pound TT with a F250 and a Hensley Arrow...would not want to tow that big of a TT without either a hensley or Propride... Same here, a TT this large really needs to be towed with a PP or HA. It was night and day from a well setup Reese DC.

RE: Sedona area boondocking

I have nothing to add other than the fact that I spent the last 10 days there, got back yesterday. Ton's of stuff to do, see and eat out there. Amazing place to Vacation - if you like Wine, the Page Springs Winery is absolutely fantastic. a few pictures of our trip: Sedona from the Airport road: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v391/tuned20v/2015-02-02091816_zps3e636092.jpg Tlaquepaque, we stayed at the resort right behind it, Los Abrigados: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v391/tuned20v/2015-02-02152122_zps6e74398c.jpg Broken Arrow Jeep Tour: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v391/tuned20v/2015-02-05101133_zps329dfb93.jpg Slide Rock Park: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v391/tuned20v/2015-02-05124622_zps19abd22b.jpg Alex

RE: Has anyone heard of coating undercarriage?

I come from several automotive restoration projects over the years, I'd suggest using some POR15 product - clean it, converts it and coat it. I've done this with several things over the years and it works. www.por15.com

RE: Ford 6.4 or 6.7?

I've not owned a 6.4 but I can say that my 6.7 has been great up to date - I've towed around 12000km's with it, the truck has over 40000km's overall now and I've not had a single issue. Highway FE is around 18-21 depending on speed and around 11-12 while towing. Mine has the 3.31 gears and really works well hauling my TT in the hills and barely turns over 1600rpm on flats - stays in 6th most the time.
