RE: Need New Shocks

I spoke with Bilstein yesterday. (1 Tech was useless, I called another number and got much better support…). I am running the truck in sig with 285 tires and SS in rear so I wasn’t sure if I should go with the 5100 (for lifted trucks) or the 4600 (for stock height trucks). Their recommendation after our discussion is to go with the 4600’s for carrying a TC. They did comment that the 4600’s are valved for heavier loads vs the 5100’s. I can’t see the R9000’s being a good option in New England so will stick with a self adjusting mono-tube design. It came down to the BS4600 or KYB Mono-max. I think either would be fine, my research (of previous threads on various forums) indicates the Bilsteins probably have a slight edge…or at least a few more fan boys. Price is comparable. That's funny. When I call a few years ago they suggested 5100's for my TC application. They do make 5100's for stock height trucks. Even the description of the 5100's sounds like they would work well for a TC application. They completely failed after the first dirt road I drove on with the TC on.

RE: XM antenna adaptor

When I had my 2011 Ford F350 the connector was under the dash attached to the steering column near the parking break peddle. It is a yellow connector and needed no adapter for the magnetic style antenna. Only thing is my truck did not have GPS. I hope this helps somewhat.

RE: TR: Part I Exploring Cottonwood Canyon Rd and The Burr Trail

Awesome! We are going there in April.

RE: Tie downs for 2015 F350 SuperDuty

(curious why "The Mad Norsky" traded his?). Short answer, so as not to hijack the thread. Dave Smith Motors in Kellogg, Idaho made me an offer I could not turn down. Went in just to look of course. Left with a new truck. Funny how that happens. It's how I got my new Ram.

RE: Tie downs for 2015 F350 SuperDuty

I had Torklift on my Ford and now have it on my new Ram. Both were an easy install. Torklift gets my vote.

RE: Truck camper & 6.2L Superduty

Moving up to a F350 shouldn't cost anymore than $1000. But I understand if you bought off the lot then you are limited to what is offered at the time. My F350 was exactly $750 more than the same equipped F250.

RE: Truck camper & 6.2L Superduty

I had a 2011 F350 SRW 6.2 with my Lance 1050s which is a 10' 11" camper. You won't be short on power as the 6.2 has plenty of power for any size truck camper. The problem you will have is it being only a 3/4 ton truck. I had upper and lower stable loads, hellwig swaybar, Rancho shocks, nitto tires and I still didn't like the way it handled the camper, especially in the wind. I have since moved up to a dually with no mods and it handles the same camper with ease.

RE: Ford TC

The QC issues in auto manufacturers products seem to be things you can't see, things that are getting people hurt or killed. I really don't think the auto industry is any better than the RV industry.

RE: This is what Torklift calls service??? Ridiculous...

Torklift is a great company. Just wished they made truck campers.

RE: Ford TC

Is it safe to say that we will finally have engineers at least associated with this project? Can't imagine Ford putting their name on this without strict quality control. Ya because strict quality control and American auto manufacturers go hand in hand.

RE: Ford TC

Looks like more than just TC's. Travel trailers, tent trailers and 5th wheels too. Also Looks like Livin lite is abandoning their all aluminum philosophy for this deal with Ford.

RE: Finally ordered and a Thanks

Already a breeze just by using my side mirrors. For some reason most people can't comprehend this. So much anxiety... I comprehend it very well, no anxiety. It's a breeze with a srw but not a dually like I have. I thought the PO was getting a dually, my bad. Ram has the widest dually fenders. Anything that makes loading easier is a plus in my book. Sorry for trying to help.

RE: Finally ordered and a Thanks

If it's not to late get the cargo camera. It a cam mounted in the third brake light. Makes loading a TC a breeze.

RE: Shock absorber survey

After having 3 failures with Rancho adjustable shocks I went with Bilstein and never looked back. The metering valve on the Rancho's failed. Rancho replaced them under warranty and I sold the replacements on eBay. Yep and I had Bilsteins and the fronts had a complete meltdown driving over a washboarded road. I switched to Ranchos and never had a problem. I think you just have to buy what works for you. What works for some won't work for others. I should add it was like pulling teeth to try to get Bilstein to warranty their shocks. I also sold the Bilsteins on EBay and bought Ranchos.

RE: Saw my first Hallmark Ute

He probably has more room in the cab than he does in the camper.

RE: Full Monty at the Cat scale

ROFL!!! Our 28 foot Class C loaded to the gills weighed less than that!! You're 28 foot class C is probably gas powered and 2wd, probably why its lighter. 4WD only adds 385 lbs on a GM truck. Don't forget to add the extra weight of the diesel over the gas engine.

RE: Thanksgiving at Joshua Tree National Park

Good luck. We did Thanksgiving last year there and every campground was jammed packed.

RE: Time to get serious. Sold TT and got a new RAM.

The 855 is being replaced with something similar next year.

RE: TC Magazine Dodge 3500 gas engine road test

I really appreciate the reports from TCM. Thanks Gordon and Angela. Ditto that
