RE: Baby Duramax (Canyon/Colorado)

Pretty big boy? Well after the aging process I now stand about 6'1" and 196 lbs as of this morning. I did lose 30 last year just by counting calories. New truck is rated at 7k towing, am I missing something? Boat link weight Actually my older one is about 500 lbs lighter unladen.

RE: Baby Duramax (Canyon/Colorado)

So what ballpark price are we talking about on this thing for a crew cab 4wd with the diesel and basic amenities like keyless and AC and etc? Picking up our Canyon over at Dave Smith tomorrow. It has the V6 engine but pretty much stripped down as far as bells and whistles. Price came in at $29339. Just add the price of the diesel engine should give you a good starting point. Good for you...you sure have made a huge change in direction...The problem with just adding the $3700 or so for the diesel to a base Crew Cab 4 x 4 is there are 2 or 3 other options being forced on the buyer. The diesel only comes in the upper two trim packages and the lane change safety package and sliding rear window are another. The tow package with integrated controller comes with it but it is unclear at this time if it is actually part of the diesel package or an option Hopefully the salesman will get back to me soon... Is Dave Smith as good at Chevy pricing as he is said to be with Ram...I am not afraid to travel to save some money... Regards Same pricing $375 over invoice. That place is crazy, they must have 100 sales persons working at the same time. They have really grown since I was there last.

On edit the options where the engine ( $1235) and also the following Engine block heater, auto locking rear end, trailer package and AM FM with the 4.2 color display with intellLink. So you can deduct the 1235 off the diesel engine price.

RE: Sold the Tundra... : (

Nice find and nice photo :W Your going to think it's broken not downshifting up the grades. One of your bucket dreams has been fulfilled, Driving a Cummins engine. Congrats Spoon

RE: Baby Duramax (Canyon/Colorado)

You know I don't pick up the Canyon till Thursday but the test drive in another truck with the V6 gasser was really impressed with the power, 305 HP in a little extended cab. Yeah only 20 MPG highway but it down right moved. I bet it will be warmer in winter also :W

RE: Would you buy again?

What about those older trucks that had the gas tank in the cab? LOL Funny IB, I bought a 1976 F250 4x4 new back in 76 and yes it had the tank right behind the seat. And it was small at that so I added a plastic tank that was outside of the frame and the fill hole was in the rear driver side wheel well. Nobody died in it that I know of although it was stolen in the early 80's. Nice truck but I wouldn't buy it today knowing more information. Steering problems have been a issue with Rams for years, you just have to know what to keep a eye on. No worse than a early PSD 6.0 or GM brake lines or GM pump rub. To know the known issues with any vehicle is certainly a wise move. Yes I'd buy the Ram I just sold in a heartbeat if I needed that big of a truck again. Just know it's weakest link as they all have em. Bottom line though is the recalls were not handled correctly by Ram. That is the reason for the fine.

RE: Yes I did it, 2015 F-150 and 35 foot TT

RE: Tow Bar Shields

Thanks guys, I'll give em a call about the heat in the rear. Just noticed the curb side rear door has a warning about High Temperatures inside. Right underneath it is the DPF and muffler exhaust tubes. Dang I already had placed my little plastic tool box into it :M Guess that ain't going to work out to well. Good news was I found the service connection for the air tanks (underneath the driver seat compartment). At least I don't need to lug my compressor around any more :B Coming from 5th wheels and OEM ST tires I realize how important tire pressure is.

RE: Whatever happened to SoCalDesertRider

Last I heard from him his work had him really busy with little time for entertainment that this site offers. I'm just looking for the Ram bashing thread but seems they have all been taken down because of a certain well known basher of Rams :W

Tow Bar Shields

Maybe you guys can help out the new guy with Tow Bar Shields. I was looking at THIS ONE that someone suggested in an earlier thread. They say it may not work with some diesel pushers because of exhaust temp's I assume. What's everybody using to protect the vehicle being towed? Thanks for any advice we can share. Rick

RE: What is the risk of exceeding payload?

The question will be, what will be considered overweight? will it me manufacture warranty numbers? or the road bed design limit numbers? Just me but I'll stick with the guys who made it not a government agency who really don't give a darn about the average Joe :W

RE: What is the risk of exceeding payload?

Thanks for the insights. I appreciate it. We spent the day at a few large volume Chevy and Ford dealers in Charlotte, about 1.5 hours up the road. We are going to buy a silver F-350 or Chevy 3500 HD single rear wheel 4x4. Where can I buy the sexy lady rear mud flaps:) Dan NC Smart move on your part, you'll enjoy the drive much better and be safer also. The sexy lady flaps are at most big rig type fuel stations or the local Peterbuilt, KW, Volvo dealerships. I think you'll have a bad time mounting them onto a SRW truck though :W Enjoy your new ride!

RE: Well finally out with the best TV I've had

You know Bridgestone makes R250's that fit MHs. :):) Nice rig, how about some interior pics? Chris Funny Chris but the Michelin's should last our age date I hope. In case you thought I was kidding! Sizes 11R22.5 255/70R22.5 275/70R22.5 11R24.5 Look fammiliar? http://www.bfentirenet.com/tires/b_r250_ed.jpg Maybe not a big difference Chris but it came with 275/80R/22.5 Michelins. It appears the 80R are now off the market for some reason. Maybe less sidewall to crack :W I know when I dump the bags the front grill area has very little ground clearance with the 80's. 70's would set almost a half inch lower last I checked.

RE: Well finally out with the best TV I've had

Your ISL should have a 2 stage engine brake. Read up on it. My Red has Ex brake and i toggle back and forth from on to off as it usuallly slows it too much. Definately a learning curve. There is no two stage (compression brake) on a 2015 Tiffin ISL engine unless you have the 42' Phaeton. Thanks for the advice though. Our old Ram was pretty easy with the EB but it only had 4 gears to deal with.

Never have liked the big oval tire man tires, but it is what it is. I'll just watch the sidewalls closely as that is their weak point IMO. Okay interior pic's maybe tomorrow. Kind of just moving things into into it now. I will mention Tiffin gave us a extra case of the marble flooring. Not sure how to take that as to good or bad news but that bad boy weighted about 75-100 lbs :E It's unloaded into my garage now so it should help my weight ticket somewhat. Weights on first scale where 11560 Front 19800 Rear 31360 Gross Full fuel, full water (90) empty black and grey, full LP (35) and a small carry on bag for each of us. Concerned about the rear GAWR of 21K, only have 1200 lbs to exceed that limit :E But guess I just use the 2500 crowd's mentally in that there is no legal weight limits on RV's :B
