RE: 2016 F450 Setup

Lets just say that the reason I am looking to switch from my two year old truck to a new Ford is because I have a truck with some on going issues that I have not been able to to get resolved after two years. The last thing I want is to jump into a Ford and have a similar situation. So, when I saw those threads I got very nervous again. I love my Ram aside from these two or three issues. Oh, and all the recalls. I honestly think I just got a bad one and I am having to deal with it. I also had a 2014 Ram 3500 with issues that the dealer could not and eventually would not fix. I ended up Lemon Lawing the truck and won big time. I loved the truck but just too many little and big issues with it at only 8000 miles. Just in the short time I owned the truck I have received 2 recall notices in the mail and 2 more after the truck was gone.

RE: Ford SD 99-04 Regular Cab Truck Camper Pictures

My first truck and camper setup. My favorite combo. Now I have a bigger camper on a crew cab dually. Definitely not as nimble as my RC truck. http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a368/rzar/DSC000631-1.jpg

RE: CA camper titles?

If you finance your camper in the state of California usually the lender will make you register your camper through California Housing and Urban Development or HUD for short. They deal with mobile homes and Truck Campers although the people that work there never heard of a TC which is funny to me. There is one lady that works there that knows her stuff on TC's but I forgot her name. I paid cash for my camper but I registered it with HUD anyway just because it makes me feel better and my insurance company likes it too. It only costs a one time fee of about 30 bucks and you get a registration sticker to put on your camper. It well worth it in my opinion because now there is no question who owns it.

RE: I Can't Do It! (Aftermarket Suspension Products)

Exactly what I did a few weeks ago. http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a368/rzar/Mobile%20Uploads/IMAG0262_zpsezqqg6lc.jpg

RE: 1995-1997 F-250/350 Owners: tie-down's?

I used Torklift part #F2000 for the front. In the rear I just used the happijac buttons on the bumper. Bumper is plenty strong and I saved some money going that route.

RE: Question for diesel owners

Thanks for all the information. Loos like I have a lot of reading to do. I've always been hesitant with diesels due to cost. We don't have the funds for expensive repairs and have been very fortunate that the 2 Fords we've owned have never let us down. Regular maintenance and tires have been it. I'll do a lot of research and hopefully find a great truck. Thanks again. D I might have missed it but what gas engine do you have in your current truck. 5.4 or 6.8? If it's the 5.4 V8 then I can fully understand your lack of power situation.

RE: Upper Stable Load spacer

I just installed these last night. No need to open up the main spring U-bolts when these are installed ;) http://i.imgur.com/N0vwwnyl.jpg Would you mind sharing who makes it and part number. That's exactly what I need for my Ford.

RE: What's wrong with this picture?

So the camper only having 3 jacks is not the issue???

RE: Aftermarket tranny and diff covers

Diff oil is good for 100k miles. Some manufacturers don't even recommend to check it let alone change it. I wouldn't spend $250 on a diff cover just to make it easier to change the oil, unless you are constantly submerging you axles in water.

Mixing tie down systems

Does anyone see a problem with using Torklift mounts on the front and Happijac bumper buttons on the rear? Truck is a 1995 F350 crewcab dually. I'm guessing the truck is old enough to have the "good" bumpers.

RE: New camper, old truck.

You will be fine... http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x94/desert1957/P5190529.jpg PS: Older trucks were NOT rated less than new ones... Awesome. A pic was just what I was looking for.

New camper, old truck.

Would I have any fitment issues with my 2014 Lance 1050s going on a 1988 GMC 3500 crewbad dually?

RE: To TC'ers who have bought new trucks

Normally no. Sometimes the pistons, heads, injectors ect. are different as well as the tune.

RE: To TC'ers who have bought new trucks

That may be the pickup tune on the CTD, but expect less in the chassis cab tune. My 2015 CTD has 325 HP and 750 ft-lbs because they expect people to actually use the engine close to its limits under longer duty cycles. This is no different than HEMI gasoline engines - The tune in cars is way up from pickups and the chassis cabs are detuned even more than the pickups. Yes I'm very familiar with pickup vs. Chassis cab specs. He ordered a 3500 which with have the upgraded Cummins.

RE: To TC'ers who have bought new trucks

At the dealership the fleet guy ordered me a 2016 Ram 3500 to come late August or September...I'm excited about it but actually been spending time wondering and researching if I should switch to a 4500/5500. Even with the increased GVW to 14K, with my AF 1150 I'm pretty much right there already, they did not change the axle ratings a whole lot for the 14k GVW rating. The only thing holding me back on the flatbeds is it will than be just the camper hauler won't be driving a flatbed to the office and to client meetings (I'm a CPA) with the dually pickup I can still daily drive it. The CTD in the 2016 Ram will have 900 ft.-lb. Of torque. That will put a smile on your face.

RE: Little Guy Cirrus

Not to long ago manufacturers were pulling out of the TC market or just plain going out of business. We should be excited when someone new decides to enter the TC market. They are willing to invest a lot of money into a once dead market.
