RE: Predictions for the one ton diesel HD shootout

It doesn't matter to me. I will take ram over RM (recall motors) or CMADD (can't make a decent diesel any day. These tests mean nothing to me. Cummins is the only medium duty diesel in the group. Everything else is light duty. Cummins is built for pulling and that is all that matters to me.

RE: Ram Eco-Diesel vs F150 2.7 TT - Davis Dam

Don't worry they will tune that diesel to make closer to the eco-boost horsepower before long. Keep in mind it is in the first year of this motor. They will turn it up horsepower and torque believe me.

RE: New Owner/Old 16ft Aerolite - Repair Project

Looking good. I respect someone who can do this work. I don't have the patience.

I hope it's not one of you guys

We just came down I71 through Columbus. There was a camper jackknifed and into a tree. They closed down the entire Northlane. I hope it was not one of our members on here. Hopefully the people are okay. It looked to be a 30 to 32 foot trailer being towed by half ton Chevrolet

RE: First 6 months of 2014 sales numbers

Ram is number 2 in truck sales! Trucks are 3/4 ton and up. 1/2 tons are cars with shoulder pads.

RE: 2014 Ram 3500 vs Ike Gauntlet

I am glad I bought my 2013 Cummins RAM. It towed up the mountains of Virginia and West Virginia effortlessly with my 10,000 pound trailer. What sold me was everything in it is medium duty. All other trucks are light duty. Why is it that Chevy and Ford always try to compare to the Cummins if it is no good? In my opinion Cummins makes the best diesel in all of the small trucks. Like has been said before if some of you would take your blinders off I think you would be impressed with what ram has to offer.

RE: 2015 Chevy 3500 vs Ford 350 diesels

Out of those two I would say Chevy because it seems more reliable. In my opinion, I know you don't like the styling, nobody beats the Cummins motor in the diesel world. Fast is one thing but reliability and quality is another and I think Cummins wins that battle hands down. Buy what you like. I don't think you can lose.

RE: F150 Most American Made 2 Years in a Row

I've had all three and I will take Ram at this time. In my opinion they all go through phases being the best and right now is Rams turn.

RE: 2014 V6 1500 shootout

Some of you are just arguing to argue. It does not take a diesel for a camper under 7000 lbs. over that you don't have to have one but why not buy the proper tool for the job. My trailer weighs close to 10,000 lbs and I tow in the mountains a lot. I had a gas 2500 and it did ok but it did not like the mountains. My diesel however runs up it at 1800 rpm's. Just my opinion.

RE: 2014 V6 1500 shootout

what's laughable is the fact my 3.7 out runs the 4.6 and 5.3's..... Both my friends had to accept it after they got their butts handed to them.. I'm all for American v8's .. I have a turbo foxbody mustang with and LSX swap... But the new smaller displacement motors make more power than the v8's of not to long ago.. I don't see why it's laughable at all.. Talking about a V-6 truck is laughable anyway. Because we are on a towing forum. Tow vehicles don't have a V6 in them. Really? What makes a Tow vehicle a tow vehicle? a V8, a V10? A hitch? A bed? Please do enlighten us. A diesel!!!

RE: RAM 1500 Ecodiesel, anybody seen one in the wild?

The reason there are compromises is because this vehicle is built for a certain niche. Hauling a heavy trailer is not it. This is for the person that needs to haul a few flowers or a little bit of mulch on the weekends. Otherwise it is a grocery getter and a highway queen. I think it does the job for what it is meant to be used for.

RE: 2014 V6 1500 shootout

I tow a 19 foot enclosed car hauler and my 25 foot TT with my v6 f150 just fine. what's laughable is the fact my 3.7 out runs the 4.6 and 5.3's..... Both my friends had to accept it after they got their butts handed to them.. I'm all for American v8's .. I have a turbo foxbody mustang with and LSX swap... But the new smaller displacement motors make more power than the v8's of not to long ago.. I don't see why it's laughable at all.. Talking about a V-6 truck is laughable anyway. Because we are on a towing forum. Tow vehicles don't have a V6 in them. That's fine it can be done. I am not trying to argue. There was a person that made a comment about their V6 being fast. When you want to haul a heavy RV a V-6 will not cut it. That is all I am trying to say. When I think of a serious to vehicle V6 does not come to mind.

RE: 2016 Ford Superduty - Aluminium

What I am surprised of os that they use the heavy 6.2L engine on the raptor when they could use a much lighter engine with turbos. The ecoboost v6 is far from a light engine... It's not a heavy duty engine either. If you see an eco-boost in a heavy duty truck it will probably be 5.0 or something bigger.

RE: 2014 Ram 3500 vs Ike Gauntlet

Keep in mind that heavy-duty trucks are supposed to be made to tow and not for speed. If you want speed go buy a Corvette. Look at any good tow vehicle such as a tractor-trailer or a dump truck. Do they tow or start up fast? No they do not they are just workhorses. That is what the Cummins motor is. It is built to work and that is why I have one. Speed in a HD truck makes no sense to me.

RE: 2014 Ram 3500 vs Ike Gauntlet

If you don't believe it then why is it that every year when a new truck comes out do they say will it competent with a Cummins? Please provide a link to back up "Parkersdad" statement! If not.... step away from the I-talian Kool aid. Here ya go, and yes I think Ram makes the best truck on the road. If you will Google it you will find lots of examples. http://m.dieseltruckresource.com/dev/can-duramax-outlive-cummins-t132903.html?styleid=11 Ok that was a public forum in which I can find the same bias towards the other two diesels. There's nothing wrong with being a RAM enthusiasts, but the cummins is not the industry benchmark. Now slowly step back and hand over the I-talian koolaid. :B Not going to argue anymore but yes Cummins is the benchmark. It is the only one they use in dump trucks and real trucks. Also unless something has changed all large trucks are inline sixes because they can make more power down low.

RE: 2014 Ram 3500 vs Ike Gauntlet

Doesn't matter to me. The Duramax is no where near the motor that cummins is. If you don't believe it then why is it that every year when a new truck comes out do they say will it compete with a Cummins? Cubby needs to work on there bodies as well, they look like a card board box with wheels

RE: I'm leaving Dodge

No! Dont tell me your running away from your Ram? Blasphemy! Personally I think you will end up regretting such a decision. 20% more moving parts, higher RPM moving the load down the road that is all on top of such a genearic looking package You need to look at the horsepower curves for the 2014 Duramax and the 2014 6.7 Cummins. They are very close and the Duramax torque curve is flatter than the Cummins. Both have very close in horsepower numbers at rpms less than 2500. Yeah but the Cummins is a much simpler and proven inline 6 motor. Also the bore and stroke is longer. Oh and by the way it is the only one now that still sounds like a truck
