RE: 2004 ram versus 2006 ram

Simple for me. The 2004 looks much much better. I’d go for the 04. Not a big fan of the funky aero head lights on the 06-08 rams. Plus you save money! Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Who actually enjoys towing?

I love towing. I really enjoy it. So much so that I’m putting a hitch on my Fusion so that I can tow a small utility trailer.

RE: cracks in my tires

Sounds like every set of Michelin’s I have owned.

RE: An old Truck

I'd put a built transmission in it and carry on. I would be careful about the chip. Chip may have caused this failure. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: best travel trailer in the 3000 lb. range

The best is an Oliver. It’s not even close.

RE: Chevy 1500 4 cyl TURBO

Exciting times we live in today. There were three engine options for my Fusion. Maybe there is four now. I am excited to see where the payload and tow ratings land for this truck. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Anyone Excited about the 3.0 Duramax?

Wow was reading about the BMW 3.0 diesel and found this "they use turbo, twin-turbo, tri-turbo and quad-turbo on their Diesel engines" quad turbos!!!!! OK then. Don Sounds expensive, more expensive, even more expensive, and then there is the quad turbo ludicrous expensive!

RE: Break Activator question

Hate to say this, I would replace the controller with a proportional controller like the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 or P2. A timed based controller like you have can’t adjust the braking power based on the immediate need. It’s always too much or too little braking power...at least it seems that way. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: My 6-cyl 4runner can!

Nice! I use to tow with a Kia Sorento (Not a TT) and it was pleasant how solid it always felt. Same with my Minivan (2014 Chrysler Town & Country). Use them in their ratings and they do a good Job! Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: 3.5L V6 of 5.0L V8

I towed a 31.5 ft TT with my 6.5 ft bed super cab 1997 F150 with a 5.4 and 3.55. The motor lacked the power of today’s trucks but the chassis was relatively stable. I eventually upgraded to a long bed Dually and my tow went from relatively stable to a complete non issue. Even with a heavy golf cart in the bed the Dually barely squatted while towing. I would not want to tow a 37 ft TT with any ‘Half Ton’ with the exception of the Titan XD. Will you be relatively stable? Sure...you can make it work... but your looking at the wrong truck for a 37ft trailer. JMHO based on experience. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Anyone Excited about the 3.0 Duramax?

These baby diesels are not just about MPG for me. I’m interested in them for longevity and TQ and low end of the RPM range performance. MPG is just icing on the cake. I do not mind the RPM of a gasser making power...just exploring options. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Anyone Excited about the 3.0 Duramax?

Can I get one in an 8 lug 25 series truck with an 8600-9900 GVW reg or ext cab truck? If not, oh well.....I might settle for a 7200-8000 6 lug truck too......AAn 8 lugger would be better! I do not need a 300/600+ hp torque motor to motovate me around town! Marty That would make things interesting. A smaller displacement diesel for the 3/4 and 1 ton markets would work for some folks. It wasn’t that long ago that people would buy online six motors in their 3/4 and 1 ton trucks...especially if they were carrying heavy but not towing so heavy. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: 3.5L V6 of 5.0L V8

If you want to tow heavy trailers, get a heavy truck. My Dad tells me all the time that my one ton Ford is "overkill." I tow stuff all the time. I used the Ford as a daily driver for years. There is always room for things like camping equipment, building materials and 3 dogs. I don't see how anyone can have a normal life with a little truck with a 5 foot bed. Whats normal?

RE: Half ton DD trucks

13-17 MPG mixed driving, 19-21 highway, 7-10 towing most anything. Pretty much the same for all half tons until you start talking Diesels. The largest impact on your empty MPG is your right foot and the altitude of the suspension and the magnitude of the tires. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Reliability ford f250 6.7 with alot of mileage

I would ensure there is full maintenance history. Other than that I wouldn't blink at 150K for a modern diesel or a gas truck.

RE: Suspension damage

I had a 2012 Sorento with a 4 cyl and towed weekly with it. It was a great TV if used in the ratings. I installed the Receiver myself and it was very simple to install. Had over 50,000 miles when it got crunched I suspect that there is an underlying issue not related to towing...just based on experience. Did you run over anything, back up hard into a backing space and hit the tire stops?... Very unusual for this vehicle IMHO. (I really miss mine) I was considering buying a newer one with the higher rating of 5,000 lbs as my 4 cyl version towed like a champ! Maybe you could go to a different Kia dealer for a second opinion? Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Anyone Excited about the 3.0 Duramax?

I've read somewhere GM promised segment leading power numbers. Let's just hope they don't build it with a timing belt like Ford did. I'm sure Ford has done their durability testing but it just seems like a pricey maintenance item. With an inline engine it's pretty easy to go all gears even. Is this a new engine or something they pulled out of Isuzu? I don’t think the technical specs have been released. Some speculate that it will be based off of the current 4cy Duramax in the Colorado with two additional cylinders and smaller bores. But until the technical specs are released we really won’t know. Thanks! Jeremiah
