RE: 2016/2017 Duramax caught during testing

I am not a Chevy fan, Here's the quote for the day... :R Silly me being the guy who will tell you where I sit before where I stand. As opposed to the passive-aggressive types who resort to 5th hand experience.;)

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

Good results for the Ford. I liked where at the beginning of the video they mention that this is the course where they run for the SAE certification. I didn't know Ford had decided to sign on for that. What were the results of the MPG comparison between the 3 trucks?

RE: How hot does she get?

Towing around 15,000 pounds through the Rockies this weekend I saw temps max at about 250*. Trans temp got to 215.

RE: 2016/2017 Duramax caught during testing

I am not a Chevy fan, but it seems like they got raked over the coals with the last update not being enough. From those photos, it once again looks like not much has changed in the design. I wonder how the market will respond this time.

RE: Depressing Depreciation

Why the difference in depreciation in Canada vs the US? Are other vehicles the same way, or for some reason is it worse with this particular model?

RE: Need advice on choosing another Tow Vehicle?

Add a transmission cooler. Changer your gearing if that will make you feel better. Personally, I think you are better off spending a little cash on your current truck than buying something in your price range. The 03 - 05 Cummins that you are talking about are going to have north of 200,000 miles if you are only spending $12,000. While the mechanical side of that truck might have a lot of life left, you are going to have to search far and wide to find one that the interior isn't beat. (and I am not a Dodge basher, it is my truck of choice). If you want to change trucks, go for it. But you are not talking about a lot of weight. Your 1500 should be just fine.

RE: Air lift recommendations

I put Firestones on my last truck and had good luck with them. Adding even a relatively small amount of weight will change how your truck its. Might not be a problem if you are only towing during the daylight hours. If you are towing at night, the level of your headlights changes with the tongue/pin weight, and your headlights are now pointed up, not optimized for the road, and shining into oncomming drivers eyes. That is one of the advantages of airbags.

RE: RAM and weather alerts on radio...

I've seen it on mine as well. Also tells me when my favorite sporting team scores. Great feature unless i DVR the sporting event.

RE: Hitch Recommendations

I agree on the air ride if you are pulling tandem. Also look for something that has under the bed rails to leave the bed clear.

RE: Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat

That`s nice! when are they going to remove 2 of the doors? and I sure hope the Challenger gets the same Hellcat treatment! Challenger Hellcat was announced a few weeks back. Sub 11 second quarter mile with street legal tires by the way. I hope they put the Hellcat into a Grand Cherokee. That is something I would be interested in.

RE: Diesel Fuel Question

Thanks for the feedback. I would be surprised if slope were the issue as I almost always fill at the same station from the same pump.

Diesel Fuel Question

Does diesel fuel expand more than gasoline? Does it correlate to temperature? I have a 60 gallon aux fuel tank. I notice in colder weather I can put more fuel in it than when it is hot. When filling it up from completely empty, if it is cooler weather (say April), I can get around 57 gallons in it. When I fill in the summer, I am only able to get around 52 or 53 gallons. Originally I thought it was because of all the foam, so this last time I filled it I until the pump clicked off, filled my OEM tank, then, after the foam settled, I topped it off. Doing this I was able to get 53 gallons in it. The truck has sat for about a week, and today when I went to pull it out I noticed that the fuel gauge was down by about 1/8 or so. I popped the cap and looked in, and I am pretty sure I could get another 5 gallons in it. Truck is stored in the garage, and there is no fuel leak.

RE: Would you feel good about selling 3 YO LT Tires?

I would have no problem putting 3 year old tires on my truck. I only get around 40,000 miles/set, and that would put them as less than 6 years old at the end of their life. I have had Discount Tire give me credit for tires I was switching out that they thought had useful tread life.

RE: Who knows what this is? (Hint - Maxxis)

I'm glad no other damage was done from the blowout. I doubt you will have much luck getting it warrantied since the tire is almost 5 years old unless they were recently installed, in which case, I would be talking to Discount about why they installed such old tires. The tires were only a couple months old when they were ordered and installed, figure I would give it try and see. I'm interested to hear what Discount has to say. My experiences with them have been nothing but positive. If you have road hazard on the tires, I expect they will give you full replacement. Unfortunately I do not have road hazard coverage on them. Just bringing them there to see if they can help me with the Manufacturers warranty(Maxxis has a 5 year limited). I also have had nothing but good experiences with Discount. I hope they help out. If nothing else, I would hope they give a discount on replacement tire(s). To me, road hazard is well worth the extra $$, especially for trailer tires. Good luck.

RE: Who knows what this is? (Hint - Maxxis)

DOT code 5009, means that tire was almost five years old, at the the far end of, or past, its life expectancy, and traveling at 70 mph, above the 65mph ST tires are rated for, probably caused overheating which didn't help either. Glad you were able to complete your trip without further incident. Thanks for sharing and the heads up. Can you point me in a direction where a manufacture or tire retailer states that the tire life is 4.5 years? Everything that I have found states 7 - 10 years (although I do replace at 5).

RE: Generators for 5th wheel power

I think a parallel kit and two 2000 (red or blue) generators is preferable. Plenty of power to do what you want to do, and easy for one person to move.

RE: anxious dog

I have no personal experience with these, but I have heard people say they helped their dogs. http://www.thundershirt.com/ X2. They work.
