RE: Ford 7.3 vs GM 6.6 fuel economy TFL video

Not only more miles in operation but the vast majority of rv folks don't have a IKE to pull.....anytime. Thats a big reason their mpg tests are flawed and not indicative of actual mpg overall of any vehicle....IMO. Do a 66 mile mpg test run in normal terrain may have a much different out come. These tests were done on more level ground, not on the Ike. Agreed.... but the wind itself can make a big impact. My trucks highway fuel mileage on flat ground can range from 17 -22 mpg depending on wind speed and direction. Also there’s a video on utube that a guy got 19 mpg from a 7.3 driving 22 miles which is bs.

RE: Ford 7.3 vs GM 6.6 fuel economy TFL video

The Chevy was running non winter blend gas and probably with less winds and a heavier trailer. The Ford was running a winter blend gas with probably higher winds and a lighter trailer. The two samples were run so far apart in time/season, external temps, wind variation, different trailer/weight and with this many different variables this really isn't a good comparison. About the only take away is how the trucks performed pulling x amount of weight.

RE: 2020 Super Duty Media Launch

Thirty thousand pounds just doesn’t compute with me. Wow! I think I would be ok pulling 30k lbs in my neck of the woods but I wouldn't want none that pulling on those twisting roads.

RE: New truck batteries

I changed mine last year and put the Kirkland ones in from Costco. I've found them to be good quality, good price, and it's pretty tough to beat a 100 month warranty.... How did you get Kirkland? My Costco only carries 36 month Interstate. My last Kirkland had the 100 month and did well I'm in Canada and we can still get them here; hopefully the fact that they are apparently not available in the US anymore isn't an indication of things to come. The last Kirkland in my wife's Acura MDX went completely dead at about 5 years of age when the alternator went out. About 6 months later I noticed the car turning over slowly when starting; I bought a new Kirkland battery and took the old one in to get my core charge and was told at the counter that I still had warranty on it. It was a very nice surprise when I received almost 50% back of what the new battery cost me! :B From what I hear some of these really good battery warranties are now a figment of your imagination. Having said that I was at the Ford parts department a while back and noticed they now sell their own Autonation labeled batteries with 3 different warranty levels with one of them having a "lifetime" warranty. I will say that the Motorcraft batteries from the parts department and the Excide batteries I used in my boat don't last as long as they used to.

RE: Cargo light replacement bulb

I purchased some LED lights for both my back up lights and cargo lights from Amazon. Great lighting compared to the original factory bulbs.

RE: Ford Increases GVWR for 2020 Trucks

So just watched this video.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XwD-AXX6X-0 It looks like Ford did the same as GM did with Increasing the GVWR on their trucks to increase payload... Shown in this video is a F250 Tremor Lariat Ultimate with a GVWR of 10800lbs and 2988lbs of payload in a 3/4 ton diesel...that is an 800 lb increase in GVWR and payload... Adding a link... Link

RE: Ford Increases GVWR for 2020 Trucks

So now both GM and Ford have a 250/2500 truck in both class 2b and class 3. I will bet that there is no difference between the 250/2500 class 2b trucks with 10k GVWR and the 250/2500 trucks that are over 10k GVWR in the rear other than their sticker. When I went and looked at the new 2020 Super Duty's I noticed a lot of the F250's were equipped with the HD trailer tow package which means they have a F350 spring pack and a F350 rear end.

RE: just saw my 1st 2020 F-350's

I went and looked at the 2020 Super Duty's a couple of weeks ago. I've been talking to myself to resist the urge to go back to look at a two tone King Ranch I saw when driving by.

RE: 2020 Silverado 2500

Just purchased a 2020 Silverado 2500 with PUCK system for hitch placement. Told dealer that I would be using it as a tow vehicle and was assured that this vehicle would be all I needed. Turns out that Chevrolet moved the puck system back behind the rear axle for the 2020 year model. If anyone out there has one of these trucks with PUCK system, what hitch are you using? I've contact several hitch manufacturers and they say they are aware of the issue, and are designing new hitches. Can't find anyone yet at Chevrolet to tell me why they moved the location. The way it is now, the weight of the king pin will be just aft of the rear axle, a condition which I would think would raise the front end some. If I had to do it over again, I would of bought a truck with out the PUCK system. Actually GM moved the location of mounting the axle to the leafs with an offset but the hitch is still mounted in the center of the leaf springs. I think this change was done to reduce squat with a load and improve ride quality without a load. So they lengthened the cab and then shorten the wheelbase to keep it close to the same as earlier models? I'm not sure about that part but I recall the new trucks are a bit longer overall.

RE: "Death Wobble"

I had a 05 Super Duty and drove it to around 180k miles and with a couple sets of BF Goodrich AT tires and a couple sets of KO tires I never had a death wobble incident. My current 12 Super Duty experienced the death wobble twice in close proximity of each other that occurred at the end of life on BF Goodrich AT second generation tires at around ~80k miles. Once I replaced those tires I never had a death wobble incident and I'm currently at ~180k miles. Still have the original steering dampener and all suspension components and alignment are still original except the shocks.
