RE: Grand Wagoneer vs RAM 1500

Are the more modest versions more in line with prices you'd expect for a Suburban or Expedition? $87k IS the "modest" version...lol The Grand Wagoneer isn’t made to compete with the Burb and the Expedition. It’s made to compete with the Escalade and Navigator, and is priced accordingly. The Wagoneer is designed to compete with the Burb and the Ex. There really isn’t a “base” model of either, they are all much better equipped at the lowest trim level, but when they are speced with similar options they are priced comparably. Yup, Cadillac, Lincoln,.....Jeep. Those 3 belong in the same basket, yessireee!! :h The original Grand Wagoneer was an upscale SUV hence the same reason the new one is.

Rumor has it the Hemi's days are numbered and Chrysler is working on a turbo 6 cylinder that will replace it.

RE: The world of tow vehicles would be a better place if

You're describing the Titan XD. It sold like a turd in a candy shop. Based on this description many here would qualify it as the best truck!

Visit the full timer Campgrounds you will see different numbers. Maybe this wasn't a full timer campground. https://i.imgur.com/FDM5WNxl.jpg

RE: GM outsold Ford??

More importantly... who cares? I buy the truck that fits MY needs the best, not the truck that has the best advertising or sells the most. Maybe Ford sells the most because they have the most fan boys and their trucks break down every 6 years, requiring a new truck every 6 years. Maybe GM sells the most because they are the most stolen because they have faulty locks, requiring a new truck every time they get stolen. I really don't care who sells what, I just want a good truck. Spoken like a true fan boy!

RE: Texas Boys! Last Call To Winterize!!!!!!!

Sounds like a good excuse to purchase a new truck.

RE: Electric Chevy Silverado Debut

Here's the new Electric Silverado Link At $107.000 I dont think it will sell very well. And No doubt the dealers will tack on ten grand or more like Ford does w their MachE. But good luck GM Ill wait for Cbrtk so dont need to worry about rust or place to charge when traveling cross country. Chevy will have a Work Truck version that will have a ~$40k price tag which is more in line with a typical Chevy price tag. I am surprised GM's goal is to be completely electrified by 2030.

RE: Curt BetterWeigh?

Bought it from the developer's original company. It works. I've not noted gross differences from the CAT Scales. It's ballpark anyways with a analog scale, no digital readout. I guess the new Ford taillight load measuring indicators are voodoo, too. $100. We piss away that and more on a lot of stuff on our RVs and trucks. Well said...

RE: Electric Chevy Silverado Debut

Here's another video with more details on this new truck including a WT model that can tow up to 20,000 lbs. Eight lug 24" wheels and 10 minute charge for 100 miles. I have to say this is the best looking GM truck I've seen in a long time. Link

RE: Additional fuel tank

Simply don’t get this get to camp after a long day and go get fuel. Simply hit the truck stops. If you want more capacity get a TITAN 50 gallon replacement tank. Then you still have room for a toolbox. What is DSI ? DSI = Diesel

Another example of corporate investment instead of future diesel technology. Link

RE: Are the HP wars over?

"I believe I'll get an easy 300k miles during my ownership." I can't see why it won't make it much farther than that. I'm sure it will but by that time I'm thinking I'll be ready for a new truck.

RE: Are the HP wars over?

The promised 505 hp Duramax for 2023 was short lived: Click At the end of the day, all these trucks are pulling Ike within what... a minute of each other? That is one of the worst pulling conditions that most truck drivers won't encounter in their lifetimes anyway. Its been clear to me for some time now that all 3 HD pickups are plenty powerful. Its up to the individual purchaser to find the one that works for them. For me, right now, its a Ram with something puny like 370 hp and 800 lb/ft torque. Somehow that is enough for everything I need. My next truck in 5 years... who knows. I have confidence that any of them will have plenty of power. It will come down to comfort, price and wife approving the looks and features. I agree with you that all three make enough power to satisfy most RVers. However on the Ike run the fact that the Ford was nearly a mile ahead of the other two after 8 miles is very impressive. It will be impressive when they are proven to put 500k miles on them relatively trouble free.....Ford has pulled up short on that since the 7.3L. ;) How many miles do you have on your truck? Still only 50k. I have a F-150 for work and usually drive my old Yukon in the winter time so the Ram is pretty much a dedicated trailer puller now. Most of the mileage it does have is towing heavy through the mountains, though. I suppose then 500k miles is not critical. My truck is my daily driver. There hardly isn't a day it doesn't get runned and I believe I'll get an easy 300k miles during my ownership.

RE: Great cooling system on them there SilverAdos!

You definitely have to love the quality of work at dealerships. I try to do as much as I can myself and just cringe when I have to take any of my vehicles in to a dealership. Thankfully I have a buddy who has a heavy truck shop that can handle most things I can't; and he's fussier than I am so it's all good! :C What is the scope of your mechanical aptitude?

"I got to say I sure do love that filter location." Happy for you having something to LOVE. And the tow mirrors... and the cough...cough... reliable transmission... cough... cough... :B

RE: Are the HP wars over?

I still recommend popping the hood on all three if you plan on owning past warranty. And looking underneath as well, especially if you "enjoy" doing your own maintenance. https://i.imgur.com/ilcWQfsl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/iHTtBael.jpg At 9 years old and 230k miles my truck has been past warranty a long time ago. Replaced alternator, AC compressor, condenser coil, EGT sensors, Nox sensor, and passenger front hub bearing. To date the engine, transmission and front/rear differentials haven't been touched. did you save your recipts for the nox sensors, there is now a recall for thoes. I'm sure I kept the receipt. I want to say the nox sensor got replaced around 120k miles so that was ~4 years ago and I never got a recall letter in the mail. I got to say I sure do love that filter location. :B How is the CP4 location? :B Happy New Year! :B :C At least it isn't located at the back of the engine like the 6.4 HPFP. :B Happy New Year! :B

RE: Great cooling system on them there SilverAdos!

If me, I'd have them flush the OATs coolant on their dime because they left that pressurized cap loose FYI if you don't know it...OATs (organic acid tech) does NOT play well with O2 in the system and they why the overflow bottle is now pressurized. That is to keep O2 out while checking coolant level. To check these days of OATs & HOATs, just look through the translucent overflow bottle body & the graduations molded into it The risk is that enough O2 was ingested into the coolant system to do its nasty work with the acid & acid etched metal (oxide) that turns into acidic, gelatinous globules that then stick to the cool-down surfaces of the radiator. That then rots the tube metal FYI for what it's worth... I did not know that, thank you. Quick search didn't pick up much about that concern. Do you think it's really feasible that, say, 6hours or so of non pressurized operation could even begin to compromise the coolant? Heck, I'm still blown away that it didn't boil over! Air exposure is a bit of a myth for the Dex Cool to break down and form sludge. I'm certain your coolant is just fine and the coolant in the degass bottle is normally exposed to air and that doesn't cause a problem.
