RE: Truck Cabin Air Filters

Cabin air filters in autos serve the same purpose as the filter in your HVAC system in your house.

RE: Truck mounted Torklift Tie downs for Lance 1172

I dont have any pictures but the Torklift tiedowns took me about an hour to install front and rear. Did not need to lift the truck to install them and they work great with my Lance. When not in use you can easily remove the "outriggers" in seconds and nothing will stick out.

RE: New Truck Suspension Enhancements

I put Torklift Stableloads on my 2013 and that was all I needed. Ditto that.

RE: Towing questions

Not sure witch UTV i am going with, still researching and I need to start test driving. As far as trailers and extensions, I have an incline on my driveway from the street so I need to check clearances. The scraping sound is never pleasant. you could put on a front hitch and use it for putting the trailer into and out of your driveway. No extension no scraping, no guessing what the trailer is doing, then just unhook flip the truck re-hitch and off you go That would work. I also thought about using the UTV to pull the trailer in and out of the driveway then hook or unhook the trailer out on the street.

RE: Towing questions

Thanks for all the input. I missed the Curt brand extension. Will have to see if they make a longer one. Interesting to see that it is much cheaper than the Reese.

RE: Towing questions

Nice looking rig Jumbojet. Looks almost as good as mine.:) http://i1279.photobucket.com/albums/y539/rzar66/IMAG0022_zps94b580d5.jpg width=640 I know my hitch is rated for towing 15K but need to look up tongue specs. So i take it a Super Hitch would be overkill. Would something like this work? http://www.etrailer.com/Hitch-Accessories/Reese/RP45018.html Please note, maximum photo Width=640 Wayne Moderator

Towing questions

I'm looking to possibly buy a Side x side/UTV and would like to tow it behind my camper. I measured from the hitch face to the camper bumper and it is 40 inches. Do I need something like Torklifts Super Hitch or can I get away with just an extension utilizing the factory class V hitch? I'm guessing a UTV on a trailer cannot weigh more than 3000 pounds but that's just a guess. I have no idea what the tongue weight would be. The UTV I'm interested in weighs about 1500 lbs.

RE: Ford and Chevy get all twisted up

Better to have the frame flex than crack. But if it flexes a few to many times it will crack right? It is possible. But every medium duty to class 8 big rig I work on have open C channel frames like the Ford and they do just fine. Not saying a boxed frame isn't good but it makes it more difficult for upfitters to run accessory hydraulic and electrical hoses and lines along the frame work. That's one of the reasons you see many more Ford's upfitted commercially.

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: 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.
