RE: M/T and three Ram ED

People do not buy diesels for ROI... at least not in trucks... And comparing models to models... I mean walking on a lot and finding similar trucks... I can score a well appointed EcoDiesel Tradesmen crew cab or SLT for mid to upper 30's and an EcoBoost XLT super crew for about the same money. Same for a Crew Cab LT Silverado.... Thanks! Jeremiah

I don't think you will be happy with the 4.0'same performance towing a full profile travel trailer

RE: Finally have a Maxxis issue!

Looks like they are dry rot. I run Maxxis too but I am not sure they are any better or worse than any other ST tire. I do have a few questions 1) when you say they are three years old is that based on your purchase date or based on the tire manufacture date which is on the date code on the tire? 2) do your tires sit in the sun uncovered for long periods of time? 3) do your tires sit unused for long periods of time? Thanks! Jeremiah

94 IDI F350 - Video

Doing research and watching YouTube video's on older diesels and I stumbled upon this nice old truck. This man is using a 94 IDI F350 Turbo Diesel to pull his 2011 Cougar. Sure does sound sweet! Anyway, thought you all may enjoy. Video Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: 2007 Ford f350? Known issues?

There use to be a guy on this forum, who could fix any 6.0l Ford for $50.00 or $150.00 or I think it was $2000.00 ... guess depending on the time of day... I think, he is now a Anti-NOx advocate and/or claims to be a one time Cummins guru, depending again on time of day and how quickly Wiki can get an answer for him to post. Seriously, as some have posted not all had issues. Your talking about Larry aka Newsw, I believe. I still remember him almost betting his life in 2011 that the new Ram SCR would have to run a CP.4 HPFP :B What pump do you 2013 forward Ram guys have again :W LOL, that would be the CP3! One of the major factors in my purchase decision :B Ole NewsW sure was a hoot... He had some pretty good points about the CP.4 Bosch pump... I never did figure out how he un-blew a head gasket or un-clogged an oil cooler in that blessed 6.0.. I remember reading that post of his.. but I can't find the post in the archives though. Thanks!

RE: 2007 Ford f350? Known issues?

Next time you go out count how many you see on the road. I bet there are several. Very happy with mine. Next time you're at the Ford dealer check and see how many have the cab off in the service bays. :) http://i1167.photobucket.com/albums/q624/FishOnOne/image-2_zps82aee8eb1_zps6db30aff.jpg width=600 Not that uncommon to pull cabs for serious motor work http://www.f150forum.com/attachments/f2/25570d1288920704t-5-4-liter-head-gasket-oil-leak-truck-torn-apart-001.jpg width=440 http://www.duramaxforum.com/forum/attachments/2011-lml-duramax-powertrain/454138d1403483329-head-gaskets-2-400-miles-img_0059.jpg width=640 Not too bad if you have the tools and the lift.. I mean, why wouldn't you if you had the choice... struggle laying over a fender, damaging body work, destroying your back. makes perfect sense to me. Pull the cab in a few hours and save several hours. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Hitch Failure UPDATE

Your WD hitch did not fail, the truck hitch did. Big difference. Actually BOTH failed. The WD system failed I lost one of the tension bars, when that happened the frame was damaged by a poorly installed hitch. But semantics aside it is fixed and I am ready to start camping again/ jesseannie I think what you are doing is great! Good job on the fix and replacing the hitch. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: New Iphone --- Apple or Other?

Android is the gold standard. iPhones are an overpriced knock-off. iPhones also spy on the users in a way that I find extremely creepy. What world do you live in? How does the originator become a knock off of something that was copied from the original? Congratulations on providing the most misinformation possible in such a concise post. IPhone is not the originator, they are the copycats. They managed to bamboozle a lot of people into thinking that, though! I remember when the first iphone came out. Apple presented it as something revolutionary. My friends were surprised when I showed them my phone, which I'd had for two years before iphone debuted. My phone let me surf the web, send emails, store and play all my music, record videos, etc. Just like the supposedly 'new' apple imitation. It was a huge marketing scam, and depressingly successful. People are easily fooled :(. You are big on claims and short on specifics. How about naming this phone of you had (have). Is the iPhone a knockoff of it, or some other phone. (I assume you are using a generally understood meaning of "knockoff.") No one has said that iPhone was the first "smart phone." Arguably, that distinction belongs to IBM's Simon Personal Communicator from 1992. Since then, there has been many innovations and improvements. Although a few models were consumer oriented, for the most part smart phones were enterprise devices. In 2007, the iPhone changed the landscape, both in form factor and function. Hard for me to see how it is a "knockoff." So, I'm hoping you will tell us what it is a knockoff of. iPhones also spy on the users in a way that I find extremely creepy. Again, short of specifics. How about telling us how it spies in a way that is creepy, as opposed to the way other devices spy on us. Thanks, Tom I had a blackberry that did some of the same things as the iPhone....well before the iPhone iirc....I also had a Treo touch screen smart phone.... Played MP3, recorded videos, text, etc... And it was pure garbage...both of them. Apple rarely is first to market.... But when they do it it's generally user friendly and dang near perfect. I get cracked up at the back button argument... My son has an S4 Samsung and I find the back button distracting. My iOS devices have navigation buttons on screen when I need them for apps where I am actually navigating. When I am done with the app I just lock the screen or hit the home button if I want to navigate back to the main screen. Multi tasking is a quick double tap and I am presented with my open apps to choose from. I like the Apple walled garden... Keeps the Malware down and things generally running smoothly. People love to talk about the walled garden but in all my years on iOS I have never had a single problem finding an app to solve a problem or do a job on my device that I want. My android devices generally worked well, especially with native apps... But downloading from the play store you always have to wonder... Will this app play nice with my phone... Most did... But not all. Oh, and the iOS updates are really nice. I'm on an iPad Mini 1 and it's running the latest OS... Running very well. But is a bit slow at times. No plans on replacing it yet. My iPhone 5 still works great... I replaced the battery earlier this year myself.... Less than $10.00 off eBay. Super easy devices to work on. Recently re-cased an Apple iPad 2 for a friend...not hard just takes time. My sons S4 feels like I am working on a toy... A plastic cheap toy. Once you get inside a device you can really see what they are made of... Apple devices are beautiful designs both inside and out. Very high quality. Never have broke a screen on my iOS devices... As a matter of fact, not any of my friends or family that have broke screens had a screen just randomly break... Not saying it doesn't happen...just not in my experience. I am calling out the argument that iOS isn't for power users. Androids can be great phones.... No doubt! Some are very beautiful and work great, but just because someone chooses Android doesn't make them a power user and just because someone chooses Apple doesn't mean that they are not a power user. There are many of us iOS users who appreciate the software not getting in the way of getting the task at hand done. Adding a widget to the home screen doesn't make someone a power user. In the end, there are options for the smart phone/mobile device user. Android, iOS, Blackberry, Windows.... Lots of choices... And that is a great thing. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: 2007 Ford f350? Known issues?

One thing I'm thinking about since I am a first time diesel owner is to get an old pos for under 5k from the early to mid 90s like a Chevy, dodge or Ford and treat this like my "practice" truck. I have a diesel class a right now but I've never done any work to it. Right now I'm in Florida for the winter so it's nice and flat then I can sell it when I leave and get something nicer vs spending 15k now and beating it up while I'm learning about diesels. What do you think? I don't recommend these trucks with these engines if you're a first time diesel owner. . Not a bad idea, I would recommend the 7.3 Powerstroke from 94.5-2003 or the 5.9 Cummins. I would stay away from the 6.5 GM. There are better optiones I mentioned above. There is a reason that the 6.0 PSD is nicknamed the POsD, and the 6.doh. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: 2016 Titan XD Cummins- TFL

Here's another video of the Titan pulling 9k lb trailer. Mr. Truck didn't seam too happy with the power from this short test drive. Also the cummins sure seams to be very loud during acceleration. Link Mr. Truck also pointed out that the underbid gooseneck looks a lot like a Reese. I wonder if they are going to go with a full fifth wheel prep package? I wonder when they are going to show us the normal Titan… I would like to see the specs with the V8 gas just for kicks and giggles. I wonder how many of the features will carry over (trailer brake controller, etc. etc.) Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Avoiding Atlanta

Atlanta can be rough that is for sure. However, I have found the best time to go through Atlanta to be between the times of 10 PM and 12 AM... That was much easier when my kids were very small. And now that I'm a little older and so are they I just Grin and bear it. I tend to try to go through Atlanta around 10 am or 2 PM. I once took an alternate route down I 59 in Georgia and down towards I 10 through Alabama. I then took I tin over to 75 and on down. But that added several hours to the trip. It was worth it because the trip was on a Friday afternoon, I had to leave after work with the family, and the traffic was backed up from Atlanta into Chattanooga. Thanks, Jeremiah

RE: Basic XL Super Duty Question

IIRC the first year of the 40/20/40 availability in the XL was in 2002. That was the year that they had a bunch of feature additions (auto headlamps, etc. in higher trim levels) and new interior and exterior colors. I had a 2003 F-350 Lariat with 110,000 miles on it that I traded last year for my current truck. Every feature on the truck still worked perfectly and I have no reason to think that was going to change anytime soon. I only traded it because of the 6.0L diesel that was about to cost some big $ and the Supercab was getting small for my 5 year old son. I can tell you, though that if it had a 7.3L diesel I would still have it. I am of the opposite thinking; I like the higher level models for the features that are really handy and convenient and make a vehicle much more enjoyable and comfortable. I also think that a higher trim level makes a vehicle much more desirable so people tend to keep them longer and they are easier to sell. I would also recommend that you consider the 7.3L diesel; they are very reliable and retain their value very well. They also will tow very well and won't empty your wallet for fuel on a trip. JMHO. Thanks for the suggestions and the experience. My last truck was a basic truck and you are right about some of the nicer features. My sons reminded me of a few negatives that time has helped me forget. Like the non adjustable steering wheel, and the hot floors in the summer. My local car dealership does have a few 7.3 crew cabs… very high miles on them though. I may go check them out just out of curiosity. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: 1986 GMC Camper Special 1 Ton Dually: Max tow capacity?

I would pass on this truck. Way too many affordable mid 90's 454 and 460 equipped dually trucks that will be affordable and pretty comfortable. Plus the paint job screams "shoot and sell" quick to me. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Basic XL Super Duty Question

2005 was the improved model year for the Superduty yet with little styling change since the 1999 introduction. This was the year that capacities came up due to thicker frame, larger brakes, tighter turning due return of front coils, Dana 60 front axle, heavier suspension and the introduction of the integrated brake controller. 2008 MY was a visual upgrade with little change to anything else except the diesel engine. Great insight! Thanks for the info!

RE: Basic XL Super Duty Question

Thanks folks, Don't normally feel obligated to 'explain' myself...but here it goes. I have a 2000 Town Car, a 2014 Town & Country...both loaded luxury-ish vehicles. I certainly have an appreciation for the dark side. I do not have buckets of cash for what will be my next truck. The XL models are cheaper. That is for sure. This is a purely economic situation...I have zero desire to pay huge for luxury items I already have in my other cars. Quick search for me for a GASSER with the XL trim brought up only a handful of entries. NO DIESEL. Probably should have mentioned that earlier. Also, pics are nice, but that doesn't tell me if it's comfy or not...hence the post. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Basic XL Super Duty Question

You could always look at pictures of trucks for sale to find out instead of hearing about someone's 20 year old truck with bucket seats. Hard to find base trucks to look at...especially online. Seems those who have them keep them forever. Plus I like talking to people. Thanks for the tip though. Jeremiah

Basic XL Super Duty Question

Does anyone know when they went with adjustable front seats on the XL Super Duty? I had a 99 F350 and the seat was a basic bench with a fixed back. I know that they have gone to a split bench, even a 40/20/40, but I am having a hard time figuring out what year that started so I can begin my used rig search. FWIW.. the new to me truck will be a gasser... I just want another basic/relatively comfortable truck. Thanks! Jeremiah
