RE: Ford 7.3L gas power numbers

90%? More like 99.9% when certain people get involved........ I guess we will know more about the 7.3/10 spd combo in December or so when they let the media types drive them around the block.

RE: A little more on the New ford trickeling out

Apparently the numbers are coming out at 6 AM tomorrow on the 7.3 and 6.7.

RE: A little more on the New ford trickeling out

This is the article from the same source written after Ford announced the engine back in Feb. He is sticking to 450/500 ish on the numbers. Nothing official and really nothing new. https://www.svtperformance.com/threads/fords-450hp-7-3l-godzilla-v8-inside-info-spy-pics-wheres-the-direct-injection.1170924/

RE: A little more on the New ford trickeling out

That story has been out for over a year, but made me look. :)

RE: High mile gas engine trucks

185k on my 2000 Excursion that tows my RV, 275k on my 04 2500hd. I am not afraid. :)

RE: Saw my first 2020 GMC HD camping this weekend

All the 20's have the hood scoop regardless of engine. Functional on the oil burner, cosmetic on the gas.

RE: I asked for trouble and I got it.

Looks very typical to me, pretty much exactly what I would expect. I still vote for sell it to a DIY guy locally and go find yourself one that looks like lsmike's truck.

RE: I asked for trouble and I got it.

Fuel lines being severely rusted does not surprise me at all. Many people who do not live in the rust belt have a difficult time wrapping their brains around how bad the rust problem really can be. Replacing the fuel pump is wise, it would be one of the most likely non catastrophic things that could leave you stranded on an older GM, very common failure. Price seems a bit high, but maybe dealer parts as mentioned. I would also wonder about brake lines, they are usually just as bad. That does lead me to also wonder if this truck is worth it. Cab corners might be 1 more winter away from looking like swiss cheese. Door bottoms, wheel wells, how does all that stuff look? Might be better off taking a little road trip to one of the non rust states and buying a similar vintage truck for the same money as you will have invested in the rusty one.

RE: Medical marijuana

Keep a low profile and you will most likely be fine. I'll second the CC reciprocity.

RE: *UPDATE* ST tires any better nowadays?

I have a set of GY Endurance in 225/75 15 E on my 9000 lb trailer. 1 of the 4 had a defect new, sidewall bulge where the belts join which became apparent on the 25 mile trip home from the store. Discount tire replaced it, since then they have been fine. 1 season, maybe 5000 miles on them. They seem a more substantial tire looking at them off the rim. Ar they new and improved? Maybe, time will tell. They still make mistakes building them apparently. I also ran the China bombs that the 2 yr old trailer came with for 1 season, they gave me no issues and a looked good when removed. (sold em on CL) Also ran a set of Maxxis on my last trailer, they were fine. I hope I don't jinx myself, but I have had no issues with ST tires over the years. My trailer came with LR D tires, I like to think it gives a bit more margin to upsize rating to an E. YMMV.

RE: Buying a leftover 2019 Chevy or GMC 3500

I like the 2020 high country version with the bow tie a lot. They had one at the auto show and it looked great in person. Locked, so didn't get to try the larger interior.

RE: What will be your towing powerplant in 10-15 years ?

In 10 years, still be using gas or diesel to tow. I really expect to be driving a 2020 truck still in 2030. The next commuting car for the wife will most likely be electric in 10 years.

RE: Dexcool vs. Universal coolant

Dexcool was a disaster in the 4 & 6 cylinder engines but not in the 8 cylinder engine and I cannot tell you why... It is? I didn't know that. Better get it out of the wife's 6 cylinder car, it's not too late after 10 years and 300k miles is it?

RE: Sedans, hatchbacks and wagons.

Modern SUV = Snail Utility Vehicle. They all look exactly the same and they all look like snails. May as well paint them all silver/gray. Oh wait, they do. ;)

RE: How do you store/ keep it clean ?

I'm spoiled, store mine indoors. 5 yr's old and looks brand new, it really makes a difference! Yes to the wax!

RE: Oil change

I'm personally a fan of the OLM system, obviously others are not. I have a couple gas engines in my personal fleet with 280K, no oil burning. Both got oil changes when the computer said so. YMMV

RE: RV Pole Barn

I have 10' wide doors on my building, it is very tight backing the trailer in. As usual, my biggest design mistake was "not quite big enough"!

RE: Night stops with RV

When I am travelling across the country like the OP proposes, I use Google maps and look for little green spots along the route. Might be a state park, county or muni park, COE, NF, whatever. Do a little research on the spots that look interesting and stay at places like that. Lot's of great places to stop I have found with that method, some hidden gems. I do tend to avoid private rv parks, so YMMV. Weekdays, most of those parks have plenty of space to just show up. Everyone's idea of leisurely travel may be different, but I like to start after breakfast, maybe 10-11 and be done by 4 or 5. 250-300 miles. Avoid interstates and see something along the way. Once you get much west of the Mississippi, the 2 lanes are pretty easy driving. I totally understand those on a tight schedule. Been there and done plenty of 800 mile days. Given a choice the slow ride is a lot more enjoyable.
