RE: Need advise on tow vehicle 3500 or 3500 dually

When I had my Ford F-250 SRW, I was cconstantly wishing for more truck. With my Chev 3500 DRW, I have yet to wish for less truck. go Dually all the way. What year was your f250?

RE: Need advise on tow vehicle 3500 or 3500 dually

So I am sitting under the awning reading this post and I look over at my 2014 Ram Longhorn I got a couple of weeks ago. It has a 29,000 lb tow rate not counting the truck and almost 5500 on the payload. I have towed with a 3/4 ton Ram ctd and a dually ram ctd before this one. All are 4x4 also. I don't worry I know I can tow it. You can never have too much truck. So why didn't you get a 2014 5500 if you can't have too much truck?

RE: How to upgrade brakes on 2000 Chevy K3500 DRW.

I am just starting to explore the options for upgrading brakes on my 2000 Chevy K3500 DRW truck. The hydro boost brakes have never impressed me, but they have always stopped the truck. The bad thing is that I chew through brakes in this thing and they aren't very powerful. I might get 10,000 miles out of a set if I'm lucky and panic braking is a scary experience as the truck pulls left and right and won't even grab enough to activate ABS when I have a load. My brakes are due to be replaced and I am considering replacing the OEM system with something else but I don't know where to start. Is this something the brake shop can help me with or should I go to my regular mechanic? Are there specific terms or brands I should be looking out for? What technologies are out there? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks. P.S. This truck is driven almost exclusively with heavy loads up to 5,000 lbs in the bed and/or towing with a GCVW of 17,000 lbs with no trailer brakes. Are you running OE pads and rotors on the front now? Have you tried Hi performance rotors/severe duty pads? The problem you are seeing is you are overloaded and the brakes were pretty much the week link back then. Single piston calipers and drum brakes that won't get rid of heat very well. Have you changed the brake fluid out? I would say that is going to be one of your problems. I would have imagined you have boiled it a few times the way you talk.

RE: 4,000 - 4,200 RPM?

The 6.0 likes to run at the higher rpm. If you have been keeping it at 3000 this whole time then you don't know what your truck can do. Yes, it will be louder and to a lot of us annoying but it won't hurt it to run @ 4-4500 to pull the hills. Let it run.;)

RE: Ram 2500 coil vs Ram 3500 leaf: squat test

Big construction trucks carry up to 20,000lbs on single front tire steer axles. Why aren't they duals? Because the floats that they run are designed to carry the weight.

RE: RAM - 0-60, mpg, and tow test (pt 3) Hemi vs Cummins

Its been a long time since we have had a gas engine that could perform with the newer diesels towing heavy trailers. Thanks Ian for the comparo. They have always been able to tow with the diesels speed wise. Just have to push them harder to do it.

RE: RAM - 0-60, mpg, and tow test (pt 3) Hemi vs Cummins

I don't think anyone is trying to justify anything. Tons of people come on here wondering if they should get a diesel or gas truck to tow their trailer. A video like this gives some examples of the levels of performance between the two and how they differ in their power delivery. It also lets people know that realistically for most applications the real world performance will be very similar the difference will be upfront cost, fuel consumption and rpm. Some of us like the laid back loaf along at 13-1400 rpm feel also instead of the 3000 rpm on flat ground. This is a great thread and shows a lot. I'm enjoying the comparisons between the Cummins and the Hemi just as much as the coils/leaf spring. Hey IB, do you guys know anyone with a Cummins with 4:10 gearing? I'll like to see the difference between the 3:42 and the 4:10 with the Cummins. I know with my Cummins/Asin the torque management is bad when driving unloaded until it hits third gear. Hooked to the 5er I really don't notice it but I don't try for 0-60 times. Again, this is a great thread.;)

RE: Ram 2500 coil vs Ram 3500 leaf: squat test

Yes sir, I would drag it anywhere I want with my 2500. Just be sure and post where you will be traveling, so we can avoid you. Ken ZACTLY! But hey with 19.5's and bags ya can tow anything.:R The point I'm trying to make is if it's rated to handle the load the SRW truck is just fine. You guys with DRW trucks are living in the past. At this point in time, yes your trailer is DRW territory but just because the Silverback is 40' long you think it's DWR territory. You ask a question about how long do I think is too long for SB SRW? You do know what I pull right?

RE: Ram 2500 coil vs Ram 3500 leaf: squat test

Gentlemen, some facts to clear up the picture in this test. >The 3500 CTD RAM should have a payload of approximately 3,800 lbs (My SRW RAM is rated at 3,880 lbs at the door sticker). Definitely not over-loaded per the mfr. spec. Some trims can have payload ratings over 4k with the CTD if you're regular cab and a tradesman 2x4 or something along those lines. >The 2500 6.4 Hemi RAM typically will have about 3,200 lbs of payload (remember, no diesel = less inherent mass). >RAM no longer has overload springs on the SRW trucks. Only the duallies. So neither truck was technically over-loaded, especially given this is a static test. I'm personally astonished to see the same level of squat on the 2500's vs. 3500's. I wonder if RAM employees a progressive setup on the coils which allow them to give a good handling ride when empty. Personally, they seem pretty level with that weight in the back, I've seen far more squatting from other trucks, older duallies included. I see more squat on new duallys all the time. But they are not over loaded because they have DRW's didn't you know that? LOL I suppose you would call this squat? Only 4,500# pin weight. But I am sure you would tow it with your TV. http://i.imgur.com/fuW8iXcl.jpg Yes sir, I would drag it anywhere I want with my 2500.

RE: Ram 2500 coil vs Ram 3500 leaf: squat test

Really, I don't know why the weight police even bother with the little light duty suspensions on their 3500/350 "DRW" pickem up trucks. Why not buy a cab and chassis and get a real set of springs?

RE: Ram 2500 coil vs Ram 3500 leaf: squat test

ib516, good post and thanks. That is a very good post to give an idea how well the coils handle the load. I would be curious to see a last year leaf 2500 hooked to the same trailer to see the difference in that too.

RE: Ram 2500 coil vs Ram 3500 leaf: squat test

Neither looked all that bad to me but the bottom line is that RV is too much tail for either dog! Length is too much for a shorter wheel based truck. Gust of wind and it's all over. You people with all the negative posts kill me. All the weigh police preach and warn that someones truck is not up to the task because of the little bible page on the door and then when the trucks start getting the ratings to haul heavier and now it's a foot and a half of wheel base that makes it insufficient. Give us a break. I'd drag that trailer anywhere in the country with my 9 year old 2500 and not think twice about it. If you guys are so scared tell us where you live and we'll let you know when we are coming through your town so you can go to your bomb shelters and be safe.

RE: Need advice on new truck

Lets get real and put the numbers out there.... That Montana 3610RL has a GVWR of 16,790# That Bighorn 3169 Elite has a GVWR of 15,500# I don't care what magical mfg. published tow numbers are......both of those 5vrs are DUALLY not SRWs. If you are really set on an SRW then get a lighter 5vr. No fun towing when overloaded....that means less frequent trips...that ends up using RV less...that ends up with it sitting around unused and costing big $$$ I have an SRW......5vr GVWR is 14,375#. It is a great towing set up BUT any heavier of a 5vr.......it's DUALLY time. Plain and simple. An SRW will run out of actual payload capacity, GVWR, RAWR, Rear tire max load ratings long before that mfg. max tow rating is reached. That is for real. Nothing against DRW trucks, but there are SRW trucks out there with 4000# or more payload. The newest Ram 3500 SRW has an 11,700# GVWR compared to a 2007 DRW which is 12,200#. That's only 500# difference. Newer trucks are more capable than their counterparts were just a few years ago. Simply put is my 06 truck has a 9350 RAWR. What's yours? The poster is talking about well north of 3k pounds of pin well above your 5er. Not knocking your truck or any newer SRW, they are impressive but they still have limits with only two tires (stock size anyway). This poster is clearly very close to dually. I will add that the truck wars the past 5 years or so have lead to a much narrower difference between axle rating and GVWR. Use to be about 80% or so, now they are all over 90%. But what the heck, do what you have to do to sell something...... ie removing bumpers, spares etc :W Bottom line is the new trucks are great, yes much improved the last couple of years, but they still have ratings. In closing I wonder why the PUTC HD contest was with duallies :B My SRW has 3700# payload and it is loaded except for leather seats (my seats are heated though just not cooled) and sunroof. My rear axle weighs in just under 3000# and the RAWR is 7000#. On a side note though, my 5er's pin runs right at 3000+- depending on where we are going and the truck squats below level. It handles it good but it does squat. I really think they should have put overloads on like the DRW trucks. I wouldn't be scared to put another 5-600 pounds of pin on it at all.

RE: US DOT Numbers

Well, I have talked to so many LEO's and lawyers on this matter in the past few days and EVEYONE is split on the decision. Of course the Atty's say I have a good case even though they have never heard of such a situation before. The LEO's are split as well. I spoke to several Motor Vehicle Enforcement Officers on the phone and on line. The Major in the IA MVI told me today that if I cross state lines to make money I am in commerce. Nothing else matters. The ladder only drew attention to my vehicle. That in combination with the GVW of my vehicle mandates that I run DOT numbers. A lighter vehicle( 250 and below) would not qualify. Now, he did go on to say that once I finish working in IA that I am no longer in commerce and no longer are required to run the numbers. Most officers that I spoke with said that they would not have cited me due to it being a personal vehicle; however they didn't stop me. Bottom line is everybody crossing state line to make a living and are in a 1 ton and greater beware. That's what I've been telling you. Officially , you are a commercial vehicle. I would just go to court and hope you get a good judge and maybe it will be dropped there as long as you get the proper stuff done on your truck. You go in there arguing you will come out with a nice fine. Good luck and hope it works out for you.

RE: Who has been pulled over for double towing illegally???

I read your post just fine the first time. I can also see the there is no way of having a friendly conversation because of all the questions and the way you asked them. Please, don't try to cover up your real reason for asking. You made your real feelings shown. You aren't at all interested in a 'friendly conversation'. You just want to show your true side that you don't think he should have been stopped. Proof of that? You next few sentences proved your true motive I'm just saying that I think if you are going to enforce 1 then you should enforce all. This guy was probably just heading out on a nice vacation not bothering a sole not causing any harm taking his time trying to get from point A to point B and relax. There you go. You've proven my point. You have your motive for asking questions and it had nothing to do with a 'friendly conversation'. So you've expressed your opinion. You think all the other laws should be applied except those that affect you. Just like the you did when I stopped you that day. Stop the other guy, not me. You pulling him over and all you accomplish was ruining his vacation and you getting some out of state money. Again you're showing your true motive for this discussion. Just to show how little you know: The state didn't get any of the fine money. All fine money in IL went to the county and city where the violation occurred. I didn't ruin anything. It wasn't me who violated the law. It wasn't me who hooked his 4 vehicles together. He had a free choice and he chose wrong. Also now if he wants to do this again he will have to burn twice as much fuel and put twice as much pollutants out by driving two vehicles. You're such an environmentalist. So your real motive for getting upset about the stop was he was just saving the environment. All because it's a law that by the way was probably made by people that have never towed anything in their life and they think it looks unsafe. Once again you've shown just how little you know. Here's a fact that may educate you a bot. Nearly every statute on the books was either written or endorsed by attorneys and lobbyists for the Midwest Trucker's Association or the Teamsters. On the other side of this, those people that are running 1,2,5,10 over the speed limit are doing it because they couldn't drag their bottoms out of bed early enough to get to work on time so they try to make it up on the road. With that driving over the speed limit comes people getting cut off, road rage, and all sorts of SAFE things. You as a LEO didn't see these cut offs and road rages and things because when a LEO is around it's funny how people can just fall in line and drive like they have some sense......until you're out of sight then it's back to driving crazy and now it's worse because they lost 15 seconds having to drive normal around a LEO. What an amazing revelation. I never would have known that had you not said it. Think of this tho while you're preaching. Do you think a LEO drives around in a marked vehicle 24 hrs a day and never ventures out in their personal vehicle. You think LEOs don't see the same thing when out with their families? If you re-read you said that you did not pull him over because he looked unsafe. You said you pulled him over because he was illegal. Driving 1 MPH is just as "Illegal" as 5 MPH or 20 MPH or 4 vehicles hooked together. Am I not right about this? The law is the law correct? That's your best argument? Really? You can't see the difference? Seriously? What a joke. Thanks for the bit of humor. Now if you had pulled him over and he didn't have sufficient brakes for his rig or tires or anything else that would make it unsafe then write away. And the guy with no brakes or bad tires thinks he's perfectly fine and safe. You wouldn't believe the excuses. Or maybe you would because you've come up with some real good ones yourself. I could never do you job for many reasons but giving some laws slack and others not is unfair and that is JMO. I agree you couldn't. It takes a bit of common sense. Okay ,now you can tell me how stupid and wrong I am with more of your questions.;) I don't have to. You've done a pretty good job yourself. Nothing more from me. A 'friendly conversation' is always welcome. That was never your intentions tho. You just want to blow of steam. Feel better? You're right I must not have any common sense because I actually thought I might have gotten a straight answer right from the horses mouth. Sorry I asked a professional a question why something is done the way it is. I guess I will just have to continue to think the way I do because I haven't been proven wrong yet, by you or any of the LEO's I have as very good friends and family members. I truly was just asking a question and not trying to start anything. If I had asked the question "why are some laws enforce while other are ignored" to just and everyday person that has/had nothing to do with LE do you think I could have trusted the answer? Sorry I even tried. I believe I already know the answer but politics aren't allowed to be talked about. Again I have never and probably will never be in your town so no it wasn't me you stopped. I won't pull three trailers anyway.;)

RE: Who has been pulled over for double towing illegally???

Don't be silly. You're comparing apples and oranges. Do you really think that group of vehicles is going to be controllable in a panic, or emergency situation? Like if he had to swerve to avoid something in the highway or stop very quickly. Be reasonable, some regulations are there for a reason. And I agree with you on some points: driver's license examinations should be tougher from day one. And yes, some people have no business driving a big fifth wheel or coach. But that does not negate the fact that some things are flat out unsafe. One of the reasons for speed limits is revenue generation and the other is an advisory of what a safe speed is for the area. And yes, you're absolutely right: "We should just be able to run as fast as we want as long as it's safe right?" that's exactly right. "As long as it's safe"!! When the brakes are set up correctly and the operator drives accordingly to the conditions then they handle fine. Believe it or not when the tow vehicle changes lanes so does all the trailers behind it. The trailer don't know how many vehicles are in front of it it only knows it needs to follow the one it's hooked to. It's the operators job to know what the trailers are going to do in an emergency. As far as an emergency, what would you call an emergency? If you can't stop then you are following too close for the circumstances. How well do you think a semi weighing 80,000# stops from a highway speed? What about one that weighs 120,000#? You drive according to what you are driving. Wadcutter didn't say the guy was being unsafe he said the guy was illegal. I'm saying that a lot of the vehicles that were on that road that day were probably illegal as far as the "LAW" is concerned. Why pick one over the other?
transamz9 08/27/14 03:22pm Fifth-Wheels
RE: Who has been pulled over for double towing illegally???

Personally I'd feel very unsafe passing, or being passed, by this particular setup. There is no way that conglomeration of vehicles could be controlled in any kind of panic situation or panic stop. That, to my mind, is what makes it unsafe. A guy pulling one trailer behind his 5th wheel may be illegal, but not necessarily unsafe. This combination of vehicles was unsafe and should have been pulled over. Control in anything other than straight and steady would be impossible. OTOH people doing 10 mph over the limit in a controlled manner are not inherently unsafe. Contrary to popular postings, speed doesn't kill, unsafe drivers kill, whether they are speeding and driving erratically, or driving an obvious unsafe combination of vehicles. The guy was running straight down the road. Have you ever driven a multi-trailer rig? How do you know how they handle? Perfect example right here. You think they look unsafe so they must be. Now, as far as that goes, half the people I see pulling a fifthwheel or driving a big motorhome have no business doing it. It's not illegal so it must be safe right? Pulling a big fifth wheel is really no different than driving a day cab semi pulling a pup trailer and you have to have a special license for that. Why? It's so they know that you can handle the rig and that you know how to recognize possible problems and issues with the rig before getting out on the road and breaking down or even worse , having or causing an accident. I personally think that everyone should go through the same things a commercial driver does as far as license go. I mean you have to have a license to ride a bike. Everyone rode bicycles when they are kids. What's that saying? You never forget how to ride a bike. If speed doesn't kill then why do we have speed limits? We should just be able to run as fast as we want as long as it's safe right? They make these laws to keep us safe. Protect and serve but yet they pick and choose which laws get enforced and which ones don't.
transamz9 08/27/14 01:41pm Fifth-Wheels
RE: Ram takes the lead.

Well here are some facts for you guys. Over the last 15 years of maintaining a fleet of 60 rigs containing 1500 and 2500 from Chev, Ford and Dodge I have finally got the grocery getters, rattle traps, high maintenance and low riders out of the fleet so now my fleet consists of the rigs with the highest ground clearance, lowest maintenance costs and some resale value at replacement time. Now what my rigs go through in 6 years most of your rigs wouldn’t see in 20 but for what I need a pickup to do there is nothing better than a Ram 2500. Unless of course the rig isn’t needed to tow large trailers and its main duty is crawling around the back roads then a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is hard to beat. You guys can argue over 15 pounds of torque but when it comes down to it all the comparable diesel motors tow about the same as well as all the comparable gas motors. How do I know you might ask? Well when we move out for a field season we would have 10 to 20 trucks hooked up to the same number of identical camp trailers. For me personally from my experience’s I choose a 5.7 Hemi Ram for my towing needs as I am a weekend camper right now and my truck is a full time get the wife to work rig. The cost of a diesel truck, extra cost per gallon for diesel and increased repair cost aren’t outweighed by the small increase in mileage one gets from a diesel. Now if I was full timing and doing a lot of driving I would probably own a diesel. I have to wonder though from the how fast do you tow threads it seems like most people on the board tow around 60 mph, well why do you need a big bad diesel truck if all you are going to do is putt down the road at 60, my Ram with a 27 foot toy hauler and 1300 lbs of ATV’s can top the sisters East of Evanston Wy at 65. Well, hook a 14,000# fifth wheel behind that Hemi and then add a 5,000# boat to the back of the fifth wheel and tell me how well it can top the sisters east of Evanston. Sounds like when you finally hook to a real load you'll understand what a real truck sees.;) This is where reading comprehension comes into play. I never said anything bad about diesels. I even stated that if I was full timing I would probably own a diesel but for general weekend trailer towing a diesel isn't worth it for me. I have towed with the biggest badest diesels on the market and yes they can tow a load, my old work rig was a diesel Ford Excursion which would top the sisters at 75 with pedal left towing a 34 foot bumper pull. I believe you said that your vehicles go through in 6 years what most see in 20. Is that "most" all cars or all trucks or work vehicles in your fleet that you maintain? I was reading it as your fleet because the fleet I maintain has trucks in it that probably goes through more in one day than most trucks see in 20 years. I have a F550 that grosses 30,000+ on a daily basis when it's on the road. I agree, some are just fine with a small gas motor. Some are not. When you have 15 more lbft of torque it don't sound like much but when you run that through a transmission and then through a rear differential it adds up to be quite a bit in the lower gears.;)

RE: Who has been pulled over for double towing illegally???

I was heading southbound on the interstate and saw him going northbound. My first thought was "that pickup and boat is riding that Class A's butt." Then when they got even with me I could see they were all connected. Such a combination sticks out. So it looked unsafe? Looked unsafe? It looked illegal. A class A can legally tow a trailer but it can't tow a trailer, a Dodge pickup and a boat all at the same time. He was almost 100 ft long which is also illegal. So is running 1 MPH over the speed limit. Did you pull all those over too? What are you talking about? That may be a rhetorical question since you apparently don't know. I never said anything about speed. If I see any 4 vehicle combinations you bet I would pull them over. It's not hardly the same as 1 mph over. Not trying to start something , just wondering what made him more illegal then anyone else?. Yeah, right. Obviously you can't tell the difference between 1 mph over and 4 vehicles in combination. I know you've said it before that you don't catch all the fish while fishing but when they are practically jumping in the boat and you ignore them you go after a specific one it seems you are picking. Again, I'm not trying to start anything I am just truly trying to have a friendly conversation with a professional that has great experience in this. If you want a friendly conversation then you need to re-read what I wrote about the stop. Since you apparently missed it or couldn't understand my previous comment here it is again: It was 4 vehicles connected together. Class A pulling a box trailer which had a Dodge pickup connected to the box trailer and the pickup had a boat connected to it. Do I need to post a drawing? 4 vehicles connected together - Class A, trailer, pickup, boat. I'm sure even you could look at 4 vehicles all connected together driving down the interstate and recognize a hitch connection between each. No one said anything about 1 mph over. 4 vehicles connected is not even close to the same. Using your own statement "but when they are practically jumping in the boat" - 4 vehicles connected together is jumping into the boat. Any other laws that you don't think should be enforced? You sound like you may be the guy who was driving the outfit I described and stopped. He was whining the same thing you are now. Why me? Why not stop all the others out here? Did you learn anything? I read your post just fine the first time. I can also see the there is no way of having a friendly conversation because of all the questions and the way you asked them. I'm not stupid and you don't have to draw me a picture. I'm not telling you to not enforce any laws I'm just saying that I think if you are going to enforce 1 then you should enforce all. This guy was probably just heading out on a nice vacation not bothering a sole not causing any harm taking his time trying to get from point A to point B and relax. You pulling him over and all you accomplish was ruining his vacation and you getting some out of state money. Also now if he wants to do this again he will have to burn twice as much fuel and put twice as much pollutants out by driving two vehicles. All because it's a law that by the way was probably made by people that have never towed anything in their life and they think it looks unsafe. On the other side of this, those people that are running 1,2,5,10 over the speed limit are doing it because they couldn't drag their bottoms out of bed early enough to get to work on time so they try to make it up on the road. With that driving over the speed limit comes people getting cut off, road rage, and all sorts of SAFE things. You as a LEO didn't see these cut offs and road rages and things because when a LEO is around it's funny how people can just fall in line and drive like they have some sense......until you're out of sight then it's back to driving crazy and now it's worse because they lost 15 seconds having to drive normal around a LEO. If you re-read you said that you did not pull him over because he looked unsafe. You said you pulled him over because he was illegal. Driving 1 MPH is just as "Illegal" as 5 MPH or 20 MPH or 4 vehicles hooked together. Am I not right about this? The law is the law correct? BTW, I'm not the guy you pulled over and to be quite honest could care less what that guy does as long as he is safe about it. Now if you had pulled him over and he didn't have sufficient brakes for his rig or tires or anything else that would make it unsafe then write away. IMO there are far more unsafe things let go then a guy driving down the interstate in his RV towing three trailers. Especially now days with all the bells and whistles that are on vehicles that distract drivers. I have all the respect in the world for you as a LEO and I could never do you job for many reasons but giving some laws slack and others not is unfair and that is JMO. Okay ,now you can tell me how stupid and wrong I am with more of your questions.;)
