RE: 2015 Ram Trucks

Well I have to disagree 110% with your comment "10 years ago, Dodge had front end and transmission issues with the worst fit and finish truck. While being owned by Daimler they made huge improvements each year. " Damn-Lire had owed us for six years ten years ago and those were the worse times Chrysler had ever had! Robert Eaton....never mind. Enjoy your new truck I'm sure it will serve you well. Don X2 (mostly). Daimler did Chrysler NO favors, but the Cerebus times were rock bottom. That said, my '03 3500 was the 2nd best vehicle I have owned (my current truck is the best).

RE: Bye, bye storage facility!

Congrats on the property! As you said, go bigger than you think you need. Mine is 24' x 52'. It is deep enough, but I wish it was a little wider. I would also make sure you do a 14' door in case you want to change to a 5er or a MH someday. My door is 14' x 20', custom made, and was around $5k. Have fun with the process!

RE: Questions about a 2012 Dodge 2500HD / Cummins

My 2012 has served me well. No complaints here. There is a recall on the left front TRE, but the dealer will take care of that.

RE: Utah to RMNP, Hwy 34 closed, now what?

Coming from the west I think we presumed he was coming from the west. Peak to Peak would be from the east side of the divide. 34/Trail Ridge is the only route from the west, and it is seasonal. If coming from UT/SLC area, the best way would be I80 either to I25 and south or 287 south from Laramie. Both would end up at I25, go to Loveland, then West on 34.

RE: Utah to RMNP, Hwy 34 closed, now what?

34 is likely closed over Trail Ridge. It should be open from Loveland to Estes. Come from the east and you will be fine.

RE: Short Box + 5'VR = DIsaster????

I had a short bed and 5er for years without trouble. From our travels, I would say that short beds may be more popular for towing 5ers, at least for the weekend crowd. My truck is a dedicated tow vehicle. If it had to be a DD as well, I would go back to a short bed.

RE: Brake Lines Blown While Towing with Toyota Tundra!!!!

Hope it all works out for you. Glad no one was hurt.

RE: Long or short bed for 5th wheel towing?

Short beds work fine. I did it for over 10 years. Wether you need a sliding hitch or not will depend on the trailer you get. I need one with mine. And there are plenty of reports of people with 2500 RAMs with the new suspension that are doing very well towing 5ers. Personally, I prefer the long bed crew over the regular bed Mega. There is considerably more room in the back seat of my crew cab than there is in the back seat of my wife's Chrysler 300. To each their own.

RE: Movin' on up to a new Dually!

Congrats on the truck! When is the first trip? My 2012 has a 35 gallon OEM tank.

RE: Four Oil Changes (diesel) for $220 Worked Out Fine

I've seen those deals before, and have purchased them myself. My biggest gripe with the dealer oil changes is that even with their "express lane", the oil changes still take 3 times as long as they would at a quick lube type shop

RE: RV / Boat = Improving Radio Reception?

I see a couple options. Sirius works very well. You can beat them up on price and get 5 months for $25. Sometimes you can pay less. If you have a smart phone (and phone service) you can use something like iHeart Radio. Get a portable bluetooth speaker, and stream the games live. Hope you find something that works for you. Oh, and GO BRONCOS!!

RE: dodge diesels

I'm on my 5th Dodge/RAM, 3rd diesel. They have been very good trucks. My '12 just turned 3 years old, and 36000 miles. I do not plan on buying an extended warranty. I think all 3 of the brands have good diesels right now. Personally, I like everything that is wrapped around the engine as well. If I were buying today, it would be another Dodge/RAM.

RE: Hit and run! - Dully owners

I almost hit my fender the first week with my truck, so I understand how it happens. Thanks for doing the right thing.

RE: South Dakota pheasant hunting.

I've hunted in South Dakota for 20 years or so now. We hunt around 90 miles north of Pierre on the North Dakota border. If you are planning on hunting opening weekend on public ground you will have a lot of competition. Bird count is up this year compared to last year, but that is still low for South Dakota. Most of the small towns have RV parks, and I have never seen one that was full. Hotels will be another story.

RE: Hail! Trailer is a write off

I agree with others who say to keep it. But I would also try to beat up the insurance company a little to get more than $12k. But that is just me.

RE: Help Please!

No advice but I hope it all works out. Good luck.

RE: Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat

I would take a Tesla any day over this Hellcat beast. Two completely different cars. Not sure how you could compare the two. Very few people that buy the Hellcat care about MPG.

RE: which jeep grand cherokee is best

I believe that the Hemi will be the first up the hill, but the diesel will get there as well. The diesel will without question get significantly better MPG, towing and empty. I would probably go with the diesel.

RE: How Many RV'ers are also Nautical Buffs Too?

Here is my new boat. 2014 Malibu Wakesetter 23LSV. Pulling it behind my 5er will be a new adventure. http://i1136.photobucket.com/albums/n494/rmbretz/imagejpg3_zps82c4dad1.jpg
