RE: Reese Dual Cam

A few obvious things that stand out to me are the following... You may be over-tight on the WDBars transferring too much weight to the front of the truck. Whoever says that the truck needs to be level doesn't understand how this works. You need not worry if the rear of the truck squats. You need to worry if your front axle weight get lighter when you are hitched. More tongue weight typically reduces sway. Make sure you are not loading too much weight behind the trailer axles. Second - Truck tires - more plys, the better. Stiffer sidewalls the better. Don't underestimate how big of a difference this will make. Longer the wheelbase of the tow vehicle, the better for sway. Esp when you have a long trailer. The tail will wag the dog on smaller trucks.

RE: Can I flat tow a golf cart?

I guess I stand alone here and say give it a try, video record it for us to show how it worked out.

RE: shocks

I'll admit I've never used Bilstein shocks, but I just added Rancho 9000XL adjustable shocks to my truck and love the results. Soften them when not towing, stiffen them when towing. Love the flexibility.

RE: New TV Advice

I have the F350 crew cab longbed. It took me about a day to realize that it doesn't drive much different than the shorter truck. Glad I have the space and wouldn't do it any different next time.

RE: Am I the only one that doesn't like air ride suspension?

I don't think you'd lose all your investment. Throw an ad on Craigslist and someone will snap up that kit from you. It is all heavy duty steel. I'm going to replace/repaint anything scratched and try. I had it powder coated black before they shipped it to me. The other good thing is that if fits a WIDE range of F250, 350 models because Ford hasn't changed their frames and there are a ton of trucks out there this will fit.

Am I the only one that doesn't like air ride suspension?

I bought a customer 4 wheel, 4-link air ride suspension from airbagit.com for my 2012 F350 and I'm not crazy about the ride. Have any of you gone with this system and what is your experience/opinion? I talked to the manufacturer and apparently I'm the ONLY one who has ever said they don't like the ride better. I find that hard to believe. You get a softer ride, but it also feels spongy to me. Maybe I could spend some time playing with the shocks, but I wish I would have just left the truck stock. After much thought, I'm going to put all the stock suspension back on the truck. It won't be hard to do since it is completely a bolt on system. The bad part is that I spent over $4K for this system with all the bells and whistles. I hate losing hard earned money, but my truck costs a whole lot more and I want it the way I had it. The biggest draw back for me is that I'm back to not being able to fit in some of the parking garages again! Dropping your height by pushing a button is pretty handy. Also helps when hitching trailers.

RE: Why is the tongue weight so much more on toyhaulers?

Axles are further back to handle the heavy toys in the back. dead right.

RE: Tow vehicle

How terrible would it be to go with a smaller trailer? How much do you plan to use it? Our kids spend the entire day outside and only come in to sleep and eat.

RE: Help!

I owned that vehicle once upon a time. Towed our popup we had at the time really well. I suspect your family is not always going to have a combined weight of 800 lbs. Unless you have 4 daughters. My suggestion is to stay under 24-26' long because of trailer control/sway in the wind. Get a good trailer brake controller, WD bars/sway control and keep the total trailer weight under 6,500 lbs for comfortable towing leaving you a little power to spare.

RE: Stranded in Houston

traded my VERY problematic 6.0 '06 F250 for an '12 6.7 F350. Best decision I've made. Have 35k miles on it now and only 1 TINY problem (110V AC plug in the center counsel). There is nothing the same in this truck from the '06. Fabulous truck. You won't be sorry. Ford got this engine right after dumping their old supplier.
