RE: FCA Woos Potential Buyers

Not sure about the cabs with a Chevy but this one is much different to the worst. Maybe you can direct me to the appropriate model compared to a Ram QC. Clicky I think you need to select the Chevy Crew Cab not extended cab. The research I have done at least with KBB is the big 3 are very close in value apples to apples. But what I see on lots or for sale can be very different. The only other issue I see is you are using excellent condition. What are the odds of actually finding an excellent condition Dodge. :B Just kidding. Yeah your right, I did pull down this different model and they are apples to apples. Still disprove's Nuts claim to lower value though. LINK

RE: Finally! Some long term reliability data!

That 2nd clicky really reflects the 6.0 Ford issue.

RE: FCA Woos Potential Buyers

I personally, really do feel sorry for the buyers of their vehicles as their resale values will drop like a rock just as they have so many times in the past and most owners can't afford the losses at all. Really? Well I was just curious as to what the resale value of my truck is compared to a Chevy. I built the exact same truck as mine sets now in a Chevy version on Kelly blue book. Same miles same area everything to the tee. Ram $31762 Chevy $28915 Oh I couldn't add the Jacobs exhaust brake to either truck. Just to top it off, I bet the Ram was cheaper on original sale to boot.

RE: 6.4 Hemi first oil change

Any Blackstone reports 6.4 owners :W A nice TBN number would be a start. That 8-9K mile change would be interesting I'm sure :B

RE: FCA Woos Potential Buyers

That 3.4% return has to do with not being in house in regards to Cummins and Aisin. Of course your not going to make money off another company making something for you. Although a name can be a selling point (Allison for example) it will not pad your bottom line. Just me but I think the railroads are the big winner. Ship Cummins engines to Mexico and back haul PSD to the states. :B In the end there is several ways to cook the books with any company or country for that matter. Hello Greece!

RE: New Ram owners; you may want to know this:

Good catch. Until you find a way to disable this feature you should be able to avoid the issue by storing your keys in a metal container in the camper. An Altoid tin may work for the fob or maybe an old cracker tin for all the keys. The metal can should act as a Faraday cage preventing the vehicle's communication with the key fob. You could also wrap the keys in aluminum foil for the same effect. X2 really good catch. What happens if you pull the battery out of the FOB?

RE: prodigy P2 brake controller acting funny

Yeah check your pins for rust etc. If that don't do it I'd re check the wiring to the harness with a DVM. Or drive only in daylight :W

RE: Turn Down Exhaust...

Just be aware a turn down exhaust on the Cummins on a dry dusty campground road may pizz off some of your neighbors. You will be idling along in low gear with a huge dust cloud on your right side. Saw this in a dry dusty Colorado camp ground. My '03 Dodge/Cummins started to soot up the lower RH quarter panel when new. I added a chrome extension. No soot issues now. X2. Private road to stick house was gravel until a couple of years ago. Couldn't keep the truck clean! New truck won't need one.

RE: Wife says I can get new(er) Tow Vehicle !

Well congrats on the boss believing your lame a** truck issue. Mine don't go for it as of yet. WTH I told her it would last 10 years almost 10 years ago, and my time is almost over this year :B Just priced a replacement at $65K and now I'm saying " you might be right dear " . Nice trucks but not sure about their price tag when your 65. The old girl is still doin fine without all the new bell and whistles.

RE: RAM 2014 Class action suit

I wouldn't call the truth brand bashing. You don't get bailed out TWICE by building great vehicles. http://i5.asn.im/obama-you-mad-_thpv.jpg width=640

RE: Ram 2500 Cummins the most fuel economical

I don't believe you will find one brand diesel having a significant advantage over another in mpg, perhaps in different model years maybe, but new, not so much. X2

Ram should step up and change the gears.

RE: Question about GVWR.

Why doesn't the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating equal the Gross Axle Weight Rating for the front and rear axle? Take my F150 (heavy) pickup for example. The FGAWR = 4,050#. The RGAWR = 4,800#. Yet the GVWR = 8,200#. Why shouldn't the GVWR = 8,850#? That is called static vs dynamic weight. When we drive on roads it can change with turns and terrain changes. Back 10 years ago the ratio was much different than it is today. Most new SRW 35 series trucks have almost a 90% ratio of GAWR vs GVWR. Ten years ago is was about 75%. GVWR sells trucks and I'll leave it at that. Yes the GVWR and GAWR will be the same in the near future :W

RE: Spied: 2017 Chevy 1500 Silverado

Ford does a much better job in camouflage, and I doubt GM will make the switch to aluminum this soon. To much re tooling and dealer notifications on repair. Took Ford 18 months to make the switch along with sagging sales for that period. Aluminum is a big switch be it good or bad.

RE: TFL Gold Hitch Awards

https://media3.giphy.com/media/9ATrFGm167f9e/200_s.gif width=640 This horse has been beat to death already. The entire test is somewhat skewed with the lack of useful data. The sites opinion only goes so far in my world. Nice report but..... a bit of Excel would mix in nicely. At least Pickup Trucks give out data for their tests. And no my name isn't Mark :B or IB :W
