RE: Post your pics of F250 with 2000 lb pin weight

You should feel a little difference in the tires alone if the ones on your 250 are "E" rated tires and are inflated properly. The C & D rated tires on the 150 should have more sidewall flex to them, thus the Es should give you a more stable feel. Congrats on the new truck! I always have truck envy...it's just something they don't make meds for!:) Happy camping!

RE: newb with a DRW/SRW question

I've had 3 duallies in the past 5 years and still have 2 of them. Can't beat them for towing heavy loads. I've spent nearly 30 years driving everything from dump trucks to tractor trailers to ladder trucks to ambulances. All had dual wheels except a few ambulances along the way. I sincerely prefer duals on the back when towing heavy.

RE: Spring has sprung! (at least in Georgia)

Yes it has! We camped at Watson Mill State Park this weekend! Loved it and the beautiful weather! http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/2013%20Dually/20140405_083047_zpse7a718c9.jpg http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/Camping%20Trips/20140405_102856_zps5798a2c8.jpg http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/Camping%20Trips/20140405_103541_zpsfd9ed62d.jpg http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/2013%20Dually/20140405_083416_zps76b7e334.jpg

RE: B&W Companion Hitch ajustment

Mine is all the way up and all the way back. I tow with a long bed. Mine is back because of my pin box bike rack. Without the airbags installed. it only took 80 pounds off the front axles. I have yet to weigh it with the bags on and inflated. It still tows like a dream!

RE: F350 and 16K trailer combination

Thanks for posting this and for the responders. I've always been surprised how much my 3500 DRW Ram squats with 2,500 lbs. of pin weight. My headlights aren't pointing at the sky and my front axle weight doesn't change. Glad to see this is fairly normal. I for one am glad they squat a little. If not, can you imagine how rough of a ride and towing experience would be? As long as the rigs are not sagging in the rear, or a reverse rake, they should all be fine. I just like the bags to help stabilize things a bit. It doesn't hurt that I can adjust it back to the factory rake. My truck sits perfectly level with only the 5 pound minimum pressure in the bags with 3100 pounds on the hitch. Monty

RE: F350 and 16K trailer combination

I have a '13 F350 DRW 4x4 with a Sandpiper 365SAQ that weighs 15,500 pounds(loaded) and the total rig weight is 25,300 with the 3 of us in the cab. My truck squats about 2-3 inches. Not enough to raise the headlights to where they need adjusting. However, I did put airbags on my truck and love the way the way the rig feels while towing. I put the truck back up to factory rake and go. Won't tow heavy again without airbags.

RE: Dually forever

DRWs suck in the mud True. That's why all of mine are 4WD and AT tires... it helps a little:B

RE: Dually forever

I am on my third dually now and still have two in the yard. I too, like some of you, towed MANY times with 3/4 ton trucks and SUVs over the years and thought they pulled fine..until I pulled a similar load with a dually! If I can always afford one, I will have one while towing from now on. Yep, I too love a girl with big hips!:B

RE: Best hitch for Ford prep package

B&W is 100% American made from American Steel. They also have the best customer service of any business I've dealt with in years. Plus, I am on my 4th B&W Turnover Ball hitch, on 4 different trucks, all with the same Companion hitch. Easiest hitch on the market.

RE: Help with Companion Pivot Arm position Please

Here is the pic I promised you guys. This is the way the hitch has been setup for over 2 years now. Tows just fine and only takes 80 pounds off of front tires when loaded according to CAT Scales. http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/2013%20Dually/20140326_115148_zpsc69cd128.jpg

RE: Help with Companion Pivot Arm position Please

Jamway, sorry for that pic, but it is all the way back now. Will try to post another pic tomorrow when I get home. I didn't even realize that I posted my '10 dually, however, with 3100 pounds in the bed I'have no control issues with the front end. Even before I put the bags on. I do realize what you are saying and I weighed it that way and only took 80 pounds from the front. If even 1/3 of that was put on the bumper it would make a tremendous difference, but not that much in the bed. Monty

RE: Help with Companion Pivot Arm position Please

Mine is set at the farthest back position, to give me the most clearance from the cab, and it tows like a champ! Mine is all the way back too. This allows the bike rack to miss my tool box when it's all loaded. But I do have air bags which help tremendously. All 3 of my buddies with B&Ws pull with their hitches all the way back. I am the only one with a long bed. http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/IMG_20120409_193345_zpsf47a517f.jpg http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/IMG_20120603_113309.jpg

Here is a pic of ours in action at Moccasin Creek State Park last weekend. Great time spent in the North Georgia mountains! http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/2013%20Dually/20140315_081932_zpsfcd98b05.jpg

RE: Ford 6.4 diesel?

If you buy it to PULL, you won't be disappointed. I had a '10 F350 6.4L and it was a fantastic towing machine. TRUE, it does like to consume fuel. I towed my 42ft 5th wheel that weighs around 15,500 pounds. Very good truck. The 6.4L loves to be worked very hard. It doesn't like the city driving that much. The regens on it lasted longer than on my current 6.7. The engine braking system actually works better on the 6.4 than on my 6.7. The 6.4s had trouble with oil dilution with fuel, but only if you shut them down continuously during the regen process. If you take good care of it, use only Ford filters and follow the severe duty maintenance regimen, it will be a good truck. My new truck gets better fuel mileage and is a little more smooth, but at times I miss my 6.4. Go over to the Ford Truck forums here and do some reading. They are not a perfect truck by any means, but are there really any of those out there?? Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums
