RE: What is the current state of big 3 diesels?

All are good but I prefer Ram. It's tough to beat a Cummins in my opinion.

RE: Ram Goes to Stunning 900 lb-ft of torque

Maybe it's just me but torque management does not bother me. My Ram gets everything moving that I have stuck behind it just fine. I'm not trying to win a race for money.

RE: 4th Gen Ram Fleet Review after a year in the Arctic

Nice personal insight...thanks for the information. 900 ft lbs of torque. I feel so sorry for you and 12v98 having to drive around with your little engines. I knew you should have waited. But life goes on so be happy. chevman :h..Ok Larry, I give up, what was that about? I have my 13'...it's paid for...it's my retirement truck...You don't have to feel sorry for me, I don't understand why you would...I don't have 900ftlb of TQ, nor will I....I'm happy with what I have...I'll be 65 next month...I've bought my last truck. Guess you can rag Ron.....Guess the buddy thing only applies if we own the same make truck? I owned chevy's from 75 through 2010, great truck....Oh, and I'm happy..been married almost 45 years, lived through a plant shut down and a lay off, raised three great children who are parents of my 4 grandchildren, whom I love dearly....survived Viet Nam...heck...I'm happy...truck doesn't have much to do with happiness in my life. Sorry you had to waste a post on me....as you stated...life goes on. I think he is talking about Chevy going to 900 pounds of torque in two years. Again ram beat them to the punch http://www.fourwheeler.com/news/1506-ram-truck-unveils-900-lb-ft-of-torque-for-2016-cummins-67l-engine/?sm_id=social_aumofourwheelerhub_default_20150622_47875056&adbid=10153454018784343&adbpl=fb&adbpr=134572609342#__federated=1

RE: First Trip with New To Me 2013 Ram 2500 5.7L

I had that exact truck a couple of years ago. It's very fun to drive and stable for towing. We got a larger camper and decided to go with the Cummins. Enjoy your ride

RE: New Toy

Welcome to the Tradesman club. I keep telling people there is a lot of value in the lowest trim lines if you choose your options wisely. Amen to that. I have a 2013 tradesman and I love it. It has what I need and nothing I don't.

RE: Upgraded truck.

Congrats, you will love the Ram. I have had mine for about a year and I still smile every time I get into the seat.

RE: Mega-trouble unhitching

You beat me to it. Sorry for posting the same thing.

RE: Mega-trouble unhitching

Get in your truck and pull forward just enough to take the pressure off of the locking mechanism. I hope this helps.

RE: Holes in the roof

When you guys say installed correctly. I clean the area well, let it dry and then install the tape roll it on and put a brick on top of it for two days. Does that sound right to you?

RE: A month with the 3500...

Very nice looking truck. You will love the Cummins. This is my first diesel as well and I love my Ram. Congratulations and enjoy!!!

Holes in the roof

I have a brand new camper that has a couple of patches now. On a year old camper that is frustrating. All holes are very small. Do the eternabond strips r ally hold up?

RE: Here's a gist of FCA's future financial doom problems

All of this is BS. Here is some more BS. Read the part where the Obama administration gave Ford $8 billion to create green cars. If you're going to do that you need to give it to all three American manufacturers in my opinion.http://www.forbes.com/sites/joannmuller/2012/08/29/automakers-report-card-who-still-owes-taxpayers-money-the-answer-might-surprise-you/

RE: CEO Of Chrysler, Marchionne In Merger Talks With GM?

Here's my last comment on this thread. If I went to buy another truck and ram was $20,000 more than Chevy and Ford I would still buy the ram. That's how much better I think there styling, motors and the whole package is then Ford and Chevy. Over the last 12 years Chrysler has given me a plus service as well To each their own and buy what you want.

RE: CEO Of Chrysler, Marchionne In Merger Talks With GM?

I gave you a link to Chrysler's future plans. Doesn't look like a company that is going under to me. Both GM and Chrysler are fine. Everyone relax

RE: RAM EcoDiesel a Flop for Towing

I never thought fast was always the better way but the drivers of today seem to want fast. chevman I was thinking the same thing. When I went to buy a diesel truck I bought the truck that had the best reputation for long jevity and their motor. I could care less how fast it is. To me that was a Cummins turbo diesel. I also laugh at guys that think towing 10 and 12,000 pound campers with a half ton truck is okay. It simply is not as the brakes and everything else on that truck are not made to handle that situation. I think the ecoboost started this craze and now the eco-diesel is following suit. Just because that motor which is mainly run by turbos can handle the weight doesn't mean the rest of the vehicle can
