RE: Ram 2500/Ford F250/Chevy 2500-GAS Engines Towing

I am enjoying reading all of these gasser posts. Mine was a 99 V10 CC Dually F350. It was a strong truck...I didn't like the seats as they were not very comfy for family travel. I would like another gas hd truck in the future...probably a F250 Lariet. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Old Truck Story

I occasionally tow a large car on a transport trailer with my '77 C-20 Chevrolet pickup in my signature. Towed weight is approximately 6,700 to just under 7,000 lbs. with no wind drag issues like RV trailers. Truck has low miles, around 72,000 original. The 454 does great, never any issues with power, never overheats, even in the summer heat with A/C going full blast. I set the cruise control at 65, and just enjoy the drive. Just a great truck all around, although it would be nicer if it was a 4x4. Do you have any pics? I bet it's a sweet truck! Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Old Truck Story

Nice story! Glad to hear the old Cummins never missed a beat! I'm wanting another pickup myself and haven't got near the budget to buy a new/newer truck. I'll going to be looking at older rigs too. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: PU Truck - which model?

Hold out for a good V10...they are out there and they are worth the wait...05-10 would be the model years of my choice. Avoid the 6.0 or the 6.4 Powerstroke...the $1500 recommendation left off a zero...$15,000 on the high end for a catastrophic failure repair. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Chevy 2500HD Super Ike

I think all rhagfo is saying is the 2500HD is basically the equivalent of a 3500HD but badged as a 2500. If that is the case, then kudo's to GM. Maybe I read it wrong, but that's what I thought he was saying. People sure are thin skinned these days. Mike You read it right. Its more than just being thin skinned in this case. The newer gen 250/2500 trucks in some cases are mechanically the same as a 350/3500....with exception of the rear main spring package in some cases and tires and wheels when looking at each mfg spec sheets. I think that's exactly what Russ is saying. The only real exception to that rule is the Ram 3500 SRW and the Ram 2500 SRW starting about 2014 when the 3500 had the leaf spring rear suspension and the 2500 went to coil springs and a 4 link (IIRC, I can't remember what # of links there are.) Sometimes there are different tiresas well...not much of a big deal. I like the men from the boys comment...like a truck makes a man...Hahahaha...it doesn't...it's just a tool...that's all...just a tool. A very expensive tool. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Minivan towing 16' Scamp

That Pentastar V6 will jerk that Scamp around like its nothing...this is coming from someone who tows with my 2014 Town & Country all the time... Just watch the Tongue Weight and trailer loading (balance) on that single axle. Other than that You are Minivan Man Approved! Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: 1/2 Ton Bumper Tow

Tow rating 10,800 and trailer GVWR 8,800 I would tow in a heartbeat. Get a premium antisway hitch and go have some fun. Me too...X2 or however I'm supposed to say that. My 97 F150 handled my GVWR 7,700 lb trailer with ease. Little slow due to the HP on steep grades but other than that..no problems. These new 'half tons' are very capable trucks. I'd hitch that trailer up with a good WD hitch and sway control and go have fun camping! Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Ram 1500 with 3.0 diesel

Quick question for the ecodiesel folks, I once pulled a 7000 pound travel trailer with my 1997 Ford F150, If I recall correctly little truck had 225-235 hp and 335 pound feet of torque. We're going to visit Cumberland State Park in Tennessee and there was a very sharp grade leading up to the park. I hit the incline doing about 55 mph, I knew where the torque 5.4 L V8 was made, and I tried to keep that RPM as best as I could. By the top of the grade and it was spinning at about 5,000 RPMs, never a problem, but the speed dropped to 30-35 mph by the top of the grade. I had a 3.55 rear axle ratio. Given the same conditions...would the EcoDiesel with just a few more HP have been able to maintain a higher speed? Or would it have been about the same? Thanks! Jeremiah My last truck was a 08 5.4.She was rock solid reliable but a screamer on long grades. This truck with a 3.93 dif and 8speed just settles down in any challenging situation with no drama. Wife says it best. It never sounds like we are hurting it. Speaks volumes The ED would have maintained a lot higher speed. Thanks for the feedback! Jeremiah

RE: I have 15K to spend on a tow vehicle. I need help!

For that budget I would be looking at a CC Gas powered 3/4 ton truck. V10 Ford or 6.0 GM... The HEMI Ram is a good buy as well. Almost bought an 03 a few weeks ago. 115k miles, Hemi 2500- $11,500.00. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: My plan

Hey IB... try the Woodalls forum. It should let you post your pic there. For some reason the RV.Net portal doesn't like the percent symbol or something like that while posting pics. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Care to guess the new Powerstroke HP and torque rating?

Not sure if it means anything or not... My friends with 6.4, 6.0, and 6.7's have never been on a tow truck...in for repairs....yes...but never towed... My dads 03 Cummins has been towed 3 times in the last year.... TIFWIW Thanks! Jeremiah Jeremiah Thanks for setting the record straight. All of us that mistakenly thought the 6.0, 6.4 Fords were suspect were wrong all along. Nothing to set straight...I think you read way too much into my post...I'm a Ram/Ford man myself...just an observation from my circle of friends and family. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Ram 1500 with 3.0 diesel

Someone is seriously drunk if they think a 240 HP truck will beat a 365 HP truck towing up a hill. :R Someone is seriously ignorant with regard to the significance of "horsepower" and "torque." A diesel with 240 HP and 450 ft-lbs won't outrun a gasser with 365 HP and 250 ft-lbs in a drag race, but the lower HP diesel will drag a heavy trailer up a mountain both faster No it won't. HP is a measure of time and performance. Torque is just a twisting factor. I can manufacture as much torque to the rear tires as I want with gear selection. One can't manufacture HP no matter how many gears you have. If torque made such a great towing vehicle my 65 HP John Deere tractor with 12 forward speeds and puts down a zillion ft/lbs of torque to the ground should make a great tow vehicle. It's not. It's slow as the day is long because it only has 65 HP. Can it tow a lot without stalling? Yep, sure can. But it is slow because it only has 65 HP. My big bad 200 HP 6.5 diesel that puts out 425 ft/lbs of torque would get annihilated in a tow off up hill with a 365 HP EB. Why? Because my diesel only puts out 200 HP! If torque "drag will drag a heavy trailer up a mountain both faster" just what happened here? And this is with the teeny tiny EB 2.7 motor. Go on, I want you to explain it to everybody here what happened in this video if torque will get you up the mountain faster. The EcoDiesel drivers were much more 'relaxed' ;) :S :B

RE: Ram 1500 with 3.0 diesel

I also own an EcoD (Notice I don't abbreviate it as much). So far, I love it! Fuel mileage is great. It pulls what I need. I did have it tuned since the first tank, and I would be happy to discuss that if you want on a private message. The biggest downfall is that this engine was designed for use in Euro Cadillacs (The Oil Cap say GM underneath!!). It was not designed for an engine driven fan. Cooling is the biggest issue, but the engine does go into protect mode to prevent overheating. Changing out some of the poor flowing grill inserts have helped. Some people are also removing the shutters to try and get a little more airflow through the cooling stack. Just changing the grill inserts reduces the J2807 tow test by about 1 minute and increases lowest speed by 15km/h (engine does not derate as much) (Green Diesel Engineering Test) That is interesting! Do you happen to have the link to that test? Thanks! Jeremiah
