RE: Buddy is now driving a ticking time bomb

I wonder if that would show up on his Carfax report??? If it does that would surely lower the market value.

Well the LONG awaited new truck is finally in my driveway!!!!! 2015 LongHorn Dually Crew Cab Aisin/4:10 combo. Oh yea rear air too. Picked it up yesterday at AutoNation in Seattle. So far with just a couple hours behind the wheel I like it. There are so many new things to learn compared to my 11 HO Dually LongHorn I traded in. I was NOT happy with the ride. The factory had 80psi on all 6 tires so I dropped the rears to 45 and it rode MUCH better. The Aisin/4:10 combo will really get the load moving easily compare to the 11 with 68RFE/3:42's. The "Full On" exhaust brake mode is awesome. The front suspension makes the 11's look wimpy! Very massive. Have a B&W RVK3600 sitting in the bed in two boxes and am anxious to get that installed and my HighwayProducts bed height tool box installed. Can't wait to hook up and really give it a workout! http://i.imgur.com/GVZZbLol.jpg I thought you bought from Dave Smith. chevman You really have no class. What has changed? He bought a Ram for I suppose the best price possible. You really have it in for any Dodge err Ram product. CHevy r ules.com/ hah/ha/ha

RE: Ram 6.4 Gas Mileage

Some guys seeing 18 mpg in a 6.4 and some guys seeing 12-14ish (which is on par with the 6.2 and 6.0 gas from Ford and Chevy). Ram needs to find out what they did right when they made the 18 mpg trucks and replicate it so all of their 6.4s can share in that kind of mileage. Some Rams were sold to fishermen and some weren't. :B Now that was about (---------------THIS-------------) funny! :) X2 ROTFLMAO http://bloximages.chicago2.vip.townnews.com/bonnercountydailybee.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/1/cd/1cdf950c-be4f-11e4-8260-173596506931/54f017c2e41a3.image.gif height=400 width=300

RE: opti lube fuel treatment

LINK It's one of the best rated products although a little pricy. Still cheaper than injectors tho :B

RE: Are 250/2500 trucks limited by their Class?

Looks like the Cummins equipped weights ~1k pounds more for total weight. Add in the Aisin tranny (~200 lbs) would lower the payload even more. What exactly is your point? The difference is one thousand :B 3500-2500= 1000. Ford does better at 100 :W

RE: Is this a dangerous situation?

Some of the older vehicles ( don't know if it is still true ) the rear axles ( wheels ) were narrower than the front to allow them to track true when turning a curve. If you were following behind and tried to align the rear with the front, it would appear that it was " dog walking " perhaps this is what you are seeing ?If this is the case, the alignment guy that you first went to, should have known this. This ^^ Must be GM only cause that's not really a good way to rotate tires. Ahhh maybe that is what Marty is talking about in not rotating tires :B Just me but I'd be looking at a different shop right about now.

RE: Is this a dangerous situation?

Great question. I've seen a few trucks drive that way and always wondered what caused it. I chalked it up to bend frame. I see your also in the salt belt, just wondering what rust might be going on in places you can't see. Good luck and let us know what you find out.

RE: Are 250/2500 trucks limited by their Class?

J2807 is at least a start. Perfect? no but it gives a apple to apple comparison.

RE: Ford F-350 PS DRW Towing

I don't have a front lounge FW yet but planing on the worst case scenario, 40' - 42', GVWR #16,000 and loaded tongue weight of @ 4000 lbs. We'll be full timing so I'll probably overload it. If Im reading the towing charts right an F-350 PS DRW with 3:73 gears won't do it until 2011. Not planning on doing a lot of traveling just snow birds but that could change once we get into it, want to be prepared. Am I interpreting this right? Thanks I could be wrong but can't see the unit you're speaking of, being that long with only a GVW of 16,000# and a pin weight of that much, ie 4,000#....My 5er doesn't have a front lounge, but loaded, weighs in at 16,300# and has a pin weight of 3460#.... Worse case might be 40-42' with a GVW of 18,000# or so and then at that point having a pin weight of close to 4,000#....but am speculating due to not knowing what 5er you may be looking at. We've been looking at the Jayco 38FLSA/Bighorn 3855FL. Something along that line Bighorn 3855FL LINK You should be fine with any 2008- to present Ford DRW with a PSD IMO

RE: Q for "Cummins12V98"

Can't believe Ron didn't mention his BRAND NEW B&W RVK3600 hitch that he'll put into his brand new truck. It fits perfectly into the GN/5er prep package that he'll have on his new Ram....( I got a hitch just like his):) I haven't been a regular lately, what happen to your picture frame adapter and Reese hitch?? B&W is really nice but..... Must be the hassle of the picture frame adapter?

RE: More Pictures of RAM Air Ride Suspension

I am guessing his truck is around 8,300#+ Nice try Ron but it will be close to 9k if IRC for the dually. My 06 is 8.5K with us in it ready to roll. ( Me 200, Her ??? 150? dog 80) Congrats on the new jewel OP. 2015 is the year of the Goat, Sheep or Ram... Funny link

RE: 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins - $11k for 200k miles?

I second the note on the tranny. At that mileage it can't be original, which is fine. The auto trans. is the worst part of that truck. If I were buying that vintage Dodge I'd get a manual. That automatic transmission does not down-shift for you like the ones in a comparable Ford or GM product. It took Dodge several years longer to offer that feature. To me, that's reason enough to not buy the truck. There's nothing wrong with the truck but if you're towing a heavy load, especially over grades, the auto down-shifting is a very valuable feature. Maybe so but the 2006 was the first year the auto could be mated with the Jacobs exhaust brake. Not much gearing down needed :W

RE: 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins - $11k for 200k miles?

I would guess that the tranny has been replaced already, if not add that price onto the sales price. You mention dealer, is it a Ram dealer? IF so they usually won't sell a POC off their lot. Good luck this week-end.

RE: Our New Truck

Congrats That is the exact truck we were going to pull the trigger on until the delays happened. Decided to wait another year since ours is still running great. Great looking truck and good luck with it. Signed your twin later this year :W

RE: CP3 in Ram verses CP4 in Ford and GM

Ricatic's PSD 6.7 didn't show any signs of water and his CP$ grenaded. I've never heard of a CP3 exploding without a reason. Even then a CP3 failure is really rare. Reminds me of NewsW telling us the new Cummins MUST use a CP4 by 2013 LOL. Ah he wiffed at another subject :B I do agree that the CP4 adds about 1 MPG better for the Ford and GM trucks.
