RE: Ford 6.2L Upgrades

I went from a 2006 5.4 4wd F150 to a 2015 F250 4wd 6.2.Both were Scabs these are my observation after 5,000 miles,with over 100 miles on a 4x4 trip on the Bradshaw trail in the SoCal desert I would not do anything to mess up the warranty I saved about $5000 off of a HD150 The 6 speed is awesome,as is the electric locker The 6.2 gets about 1Mpg less than the 5.4 Once you get going the power is better Once you are in 4wd the Traction control is turned off This comparison Is with the same camper I have 400mi range with camper@ 12.3mpg I have over500 mi range Without @ 15.5

RE: Ford 6.2 L Owners

Three days ago I posted about going from a5.4 F150 to a 6.2 F250. I was on the fence about HD 150 or F250 gas. The bottem line is the F250 gets about 1 gal less than the 150,with the same camper. 2015 4wd scab around town 11 with camper,12.2 on road

2006 5.4 F150 to 2015 6.2 F250

Later this week my 2015 F250 goes in for 5000 service Iwent from a 9 yr old F150 to a new F250. the six speed is great,as is the tow haul.The 4wd is a lot smoother,the electronic rear axle is outstanding.With the camper I get about.9 mpg less,13.3vs 12.4. Empty I avg 15-16,with one drive from Casa Grande to Yuma I got 17.2 @ 68mph. the comparison is with the same camper.Although the rig is about 1000 lbs. heavier,I was hoping the new 6.2 would get the same mpg.I did get the truck for about 5,000 less than a 2015 HD would have cost. The truck came with sno plow pac and with over 1500 pounds it is still level with no squatWith camper range is about 400 miles and 500 empty http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/EB7F6E05-7EF0-4D23-AFFE-9CA7089D7E1B_zpslpbdqwn4.jpg height=600 width=480 http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/Mobile%20Uploads/B0F42401-52AA-46E3-808E-2DB9A40C9073_zps8kxm0b2x.jpg height=600 width=480 Old silver 2006 F150 New white 2015 F250

RE: Transmission Gauge for Ford E-Series

Not sure if the V-10 has an Oil Temp sensor. I know my 02 doesn`t, not sure on the newer ones. I spoke with the folks at Scan Gauge and they said that oil temp was not an option on the V-10's, even as an "X" Gauge function. I assume that would only be due to the lack of an oil temp sensor but running with coolant temp (digitally), displayed gives a pretty good view of the overall engine temps. :C I installed the scan guage I had on my 06 F150 on to my 2015 F250 for some reason you cant get oil temp and I no longer can get the slip function for the auto trans.I was able to get the trans temp after reprograming the four displays I run are water temp,trans temp,RPM and voltage I have noticed the temps are about 5 degrees hotter than the F150 programing

RE: High altitude & cloud-free camping in mid-August?

I live in AZ and do a lot of camping up in Big Lake, AZ. Great place to camp at 9000 feet. Big Lake is about 30 miles from Show Low, AZ but has great boon-docking locations all around it. Rudy I may try it out in Aug for some skywatching http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/Mobile%20Uploads/B0F42401-52AA-46E3-808E-2DB9A40C9073_zps8kxm0b2x.jpg height=600 width=480

Found out I couldn't read the chart with the red light. its a little late in the year for gazing at orion,but always enjoy looking at the nebula in the sword. after putting the binocs away,enjoyed looking at the stars,after a while I could make out the small dipper,something I cant see in Casa Grande. still debating whether to go to Chaco Canyon for the summer solstice If anyone has done this please let me know sorry for double pic of the new truck

RE: Where is your truck camper headed this summer?

Death Valley for a week in March.towing a pre-runner down, running all the trails that we can. Then back home, repack and hit Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, South Dakota, Montana, Colorado, Utah, Arizona, the head back home via the Eastern Sierras, but without towing another vehicle. Should be fun! Make sure you go to the Race Track! I am thinking about going to Chaco Canyon for their program on the summer solstice. and going back to Death VAlley for the 49 ers in Nov

RE: I remember when----???? (camping version).

I remember when a 1959 Plymouth Station Wagon with those huge fins and 3 row seating was a popular choice for families (ours included) to go camping. The kids could spread out, there was room in the "far back" rear facing seat to enjoy the scenery from a different perspective. And CAMPING involved a very heavy canvas 3-room tent with the wooden poles holding it up and making the framework. The tent was ALWAYS carried on the roof rack of the Plymouth! yep,except our car was a 57 Dodge with 1 room tent.

RE: Im finding vague references

We are sayimg the same thing,he should get a F350 When I bought my F250,they had no gas models with camper pack So I looked at a F350 SRW near the price and figured I would get the aux springs It did not have aux springs.That was only standard on F350DRW All the 2015 F350SRW had the aux springs Something has changed since 2013 or 14.
