RE: Installing Ram 5th wheel prep

Do your self a HUGE favor sell the hitch put the money towards this you WILL thank me!!! http://i.imgur.com/1axw2bPl.jpg Great idea, but the wife wants to do this on the lowest possible budget. She looked at hitch prices and just about choked. She sees the seller giving us the hitch with the 5th wheel and doesn't see the need to buy another one. I can get the pucks and picture frame adapter for a reasonable price and make it work. I would LOVE to get a B&W with the Dual Jaw, but that just isn't going to be in the financial cards right now. KJ Your call but IMHO you are throwing good money after bad. The RVK3600 will be ready to go when you decide your truck and RV are not big enough. Do the math. Picture frame adapter is $370 sell your "FREE" hitch $300? You are down to $500 for the proper hitch. NO brainer to me. You need to sell your wife on this. Now I see you are getting a RBW hitch. Ask your wife if she wants to hear a big clank overtime you stop and take off???? I can comment on this since I went from RBW to B&W. You will HATE the hitch. I did.

RE: Ram 3500 Mega cab vs Crew cab

Crew Cab long bed with a nice big 30" deep tool box and a rock solid hitch with NO worries of hitting the cab. http://i.imgur.com/1huzyGCl.jpg

RE: 2017 PSD numbers are in FLT Offical ?

"Well, maybe it's time for Ram to put together a 4500 pickup?" Don't think there is any reason to do so. Ford already is competing with the RAM 3500 with it's F450. I am sure that is enough reason for RAM to leave well enough alone. That would be with their 2 wheel drive single cab dually? That's what Ram uses to claim their current highest available tow numbers. Not sure what the take rate on a 2wd single cab dually is, but it can't be very high. If you want to compare apples to apples, let's see the numbers of the F350 4x4 crew cab vs. the Ram 3500 4x4 crew cab since that is the most popular configuration these days. Then do the same comparison for Ford's upcoming 2017 model. Ford easily trumps Ram's current offerings and does it with a crew cab and 4wd standard. 2017 Rams are not out yet so we will have to use 2016. 2016 Ram Crew Cab 4X4 Long Bed DRW with 4.10:1 Max trailer is 30,310# with max payload of 5,680# 2016 Ford F350 4X4 Long Bed DRW with 4.30:1 Max trailer is 26,500# with max payload of 6,460#. Let's remember the F250/350 is NOT SAE rated but the 450 is.

The F450 SHOULD blow the RAM away in it's SAE ratings. Remember it's ford that feels the need to compare the 450 instead of the 350 to the 3500 RAM. You can say it's standard but I say VERY limited. Ford has had 18 years to design the 17 HD trucks so they SHOULD lead every single category. Then it will be GM and RAM's turn to up it all again.

RE: Disc brake conversion

I highly advise bleeding a second time after the first outing.

RE: ram 3500 firestone tires

a little disappointed with firestone my ram came with the TransForce HT tires. when I looked online, it shows these as light to medium truck tire. I went to firestone website to get the weight/inflation charts, and could not find one. ended up with a online chat. after answering a dozen questions, am told she cant help. firestone is worthless. anyone know where I can get the weight/inflation charts Just type in your tire size and weight/inflation chart in a search. All tires your size and load rating have the same info.

RE: ram 3500 firestone tires

Front tires add 10 psi over what the weight/inflation charts say. Rears 5psi over up to max. Most people over inflated rears and under inflate fronts that is why most get 40K on a set. But we want it to ride like a soft sprung Furd! ZACTLT! On 3rd gen take offs I would easily get 100k with proper inflation and 15-20K rotation. I bought the below tires and wheels off a 2010 SRW RAM with 40K I have put 40K on them. The fronts had edge wear and the rears had center wear. They have even tread wear at this time. So this set of BFG Rugged trail will easily get 90k instead of 100+ because of uneven tread wear for the first 40K. Stamped date code (4210). http://i.imgur.com/KGXfuI4l.jpg

RE: 2016 MS36RSSB3 purchase

I can think of a 2010, 2012 and that 2013 as examples when they were traded in. Ron...MS is setting "almost level on my Ram...pictures to follow. Jim http://www.kydtr.com/coppermine/albums/userpics/10027/normal_jimIMG_6147.jpeg http://www.kydtr.com/coppermine/albums/userpics/10027/normal_jimIMG_1352.jpeg Nice to have a picture posting friend. :B Looks good, get it on some very flat ground and measure the 4 corners of the RV to the ground. Also each axle weight will tell a lot. If you don't have the 2" riser I am sure you are nose high. Pic below does not look bad but the front was around 5" higher than the rear. I have 6 1/2" clearance at the tailgate. My axle weight was 1,400# more on the rear axle before I had the 3" riser added. http://i.imgur.com/EWSnmLPl.jpg

Not really that big of a deal except for removing the diesel from your tank.

RE: Buying new truck, hitch question

You can have the Curt/RAM hitch as part of the sale but realize it's Made in China. This is the best non air ride hitch on the market. When you decide to buy a 3500 RAM you can take its with. Simple solid no question if you are hitched. http://i.imgur.com/pTqNFbYl.jpg

RE: Tire choice

^^^^^^Not so much a toss up when you factor in the cost. :) Cost is NOT everything to some.:)

RE: Tire choice

Can you get MAXXIS? Best choice. At any rate. I would stay away from GY Why should I have a concern with a Goodyear G rated tire? The 614 is an LT tire. Mark Nope just ant Goodyear. Way over rated, over priced and just bad. There were all I use to buy, until I figured it out, they don't last. If you are tailing their "G" or "H" tires as "just bad" please explain. Since early 07 they have a stellar reputation.

RE: Tire choice

I have GY614 that are 5 years old.. Which would you choose? Goodyear Saliun Sampson Gladiator Goodyear's are roughly $1,700.00. All others between $1,000.00-1,200.00 Have the GY's given you good service? That should answer your question. Personally I would have no issue running either the GY "G" or "H" tires for 7 years. Do a little shopping, your $1,700 figure is on the high side. You should be able to get $300 for your tires on Craig's list. Also remember GY is the only one that WILL pay for damages.

RE: 2016 MS36RSSB3 purchase

Jim Hope you are enjoying your new 5th wheel at TJ Camping world and everything went well, it's hot here in Asheville today so it should be a good test for your AC units. We are enjoying our new RAM (your old one)and it pulls our Cedar Creek with ease. Jay Yea there are a lot of primo used NC Hauler trucks out there! :B

RE: 50 AMP cord storage

So, in the bright light of day I can see that I am using a 6/3 and 8/1 power cord and it's a bear to handle. It must be a brand difference. Mine says Ciylius E90165-D STW made by Well Shin Technology. Is it the SOW vs. STW that makes it such a problem? If so, otherwise, are they the same thing or are the wires inside somewhat different? (Stranded, not-stranded?). STW type cord is about the cheapest stuff they make. If you want fexablity in any weather you want SOW or even just SO Can't beat it! http://i.imgur.com/IKI8wPTl.jpg
