RE: Tandem or single axle

A tandem axle will tow better. Especially important if you are pulling with a smaller tow vehicle.

RE: Hellcat 1500????

There are three Hellcats (2 Challengers and a Charger) that I see at the airport parking garage every week. I've heard one of them running, and man that exhaust note is sweet. I'm not interested in one in a 1500, but if it really makes its way into a Grand Cherokee, and has similar towing specs as the current SRT, it will be very tempting.

Nice write up. Glad the truck is treating you well.

RE: nail file for my dog?

I have our dogs nails trimmed. The groomer uses a plug in Dremel. It works well. I should probably buy one myself.

Congrats on the new ride!

RE: Titan XD First Impression

Thanks for taking time to post. Your reported MPG is better than I anticipated. From watching football recently, it looks like Nissan is finally ready to push these trucks. Difficult to turn on a game right now without seeing an advertisement. It is about time.

RE: Grand Tetons Camping

Thanks for the feedback. We may target GV. But nice to know we won't be stuck in a commercial campground.

RE: 2012 Ram Exhaust/Engine brake question!

I am not saying that the 68RFE shifts poorly. What I am saying is that these trucks (as well as those from the competitors) could improve by allowing a paddle shifter that would allow the driver to more easily and quickly choose their own gear. If you haven't driven a vehicle with paddle shifters you really don't know what you are missing. They perform much better than a column shift with a button on the end that only limits the top gear the truck can use. Have you ever sat in a Ram/Dodge pickup with a 6speed auto trans, either one? Every one I've been in has a +/- button on the shifter that allows manual up and down gear changes when you put the shifter in manual mode. Like a paddle shifter but not on the steering wheel. Or are you just speculating for the sake of discussion? I bought my 2012 new in September of 2011, and have driven it ever since. While there is a +/- button on the gear shift, there is no manual mode. All that the +/- button will do is limit the top gear available to the transmission. It will not allow you to manually shift. It is nothing like a car with paddle shifts. No speculation here.

Grand Tetons Camping

Planning a trip for the first week of June. We prefer the state/national parks over the commercial campgrounds. Grow Ventre and Coulter Bay look interesting on line, but I am concerned that they do not allow reservations. We will be arriving mid day on a Friday with a 32' 5er. What are the opinions on the likelihood of being able to get a spot? Or two (we will have at least one other RV in our group). Electricity would be a nice to have, but not required. We would be fine dry camping.

RE: Anybody done this.....sigh....aargh

Skip the dealer and find a fiberglas repair shop. If you don't know of one in your area, contact a local boat dealer and they will steer you in the right direction.

RE: Worth stopping in Yellowstone Park at end of October?

The shops/some lodges might be closed, but the park itself and all attractions are open. Great time of year to go as the crowds are small. No doubt in my mind, I would absolutely stop if I was remotely in the area.

Very nice! Enjoy that new truck smell.

RE: Winterizing: blow-out vs antifreeze for longer term storage?

I don't understand the logic of putting in the pink stuff only to blow it right back out. That does not make sense to me. I would do one or the other, but not both. And if it were me, I would just blow out the lines (pushing a lot of air through), add pink stuff to the traps, and call it good. I used to pump the pink stuff through, but went two winters (with temps well below 0 for a week at a time) with just blowing out and no issues.

RE: towing a small boat behind travel trailer

Make sure you'll never have to back up with it all connected. I can back up. Difficult. Not impossible.

RE: 2012 Ram Exhaust/Engine brake question!

I never use TH mode and the EB at the same time when not towing. Makes for a jerky drive thru town and anywhere else you need to be constantly slowing down. I run the EB all the time when towing though. I also don't use TH mode with the EB when descending mtn passes. The truck always wants to slow down too much. So I just run the EB and use the gear selector. I only tow 9000lbs so maybe guys towing heavier get better use out of TH/EB at the same time. X2. Very happy with my truck, but I don't like the T/H. Even when towing 16000 pounds. I wish the trucks had a true gear shift option - not just the ability to limit what the top gear selected is. I think paddle shifts like the sports cars have would be a nice option.

RE: towing a small boat behind travel trailer

Check with the states your going to travel in. Its legal and safe if done properly. I towed an enclosed trailer behind my 28ft tt for several years. It works quite well. You might need an endorsment or different class drivers license though so check with your state. Most on here just believe its not legal without ever doing the legwork. Also dont rely on websites that show towing regs, you have to check with each state itself. Ditto. Check Texas, and any states that you might travel through. Colorado allows double tow without a special endorsement in license or requiring the first trailer to be a 5er. I thought Texas was the same, but I am not sure. And the issue of tandem towing is a hornets nest that usually brings out TONS of misinformation and fear mongering.

RE: Ground clearance 5th vs TT

Also need to be concerned about the amount of clearance between the 5er and the truck bed. I have never (noticed) being close to dragging the bottom of the trailer, but there have been many times where I was close to hitting the bed rails.

RE: 2005 2500 HD

It is more money than I would pay, but there are a ton of people out there that want nothing to do with the modern emissions equipment on current diesels, so anything before about 2007 demands a premium - especially if it is low miles. If it came from Colorado, rust isn't likely. But do closely check anything that is chrome - bumpers, wheels, grille, door handles, etc. Colorado uses MagChloride to treat the roads, and it eats chrome.

RE: Can I tow this with my 2000 Dodge Ram 3/4 Diesel?

That looks awesome!
