RE: Has anyone looked at the Jeep Gladiator?

From the research I've been doing the 3.6L appears to be adequate at best in the 4 door Wrangler in non towing applications and I wouldn't want the turbo 4 cylinder nor would I want the Eco Diesel. In addition these two engine options add even more costs. Personally I think both the 4 door Wrangler and the Gladiator are over priced.

RE: 2020 GM/Chevy gas 6.6L max towing test

My biggest concern going diesel is with all the Emmisions **** on them, and the cost to repair it. I know some have no probs, but you read stories all the time of CP4 fuel pump grenading and costing $10k to repair, or $5k Emmisions repairs. I keep trucks well past warranty, my current truck I've had for 17 years, and 235k miles, and I've had 2 engine repairs. A fuel pump at 195k miles, and at 210k I had new rear main seal, oil cooler lines, valve cover gaskets etc replace because it was dripping oil all over the driveway. Total engine repairs over 17 years is less than $2500. I'm debating new trucks now, and diesel vs gas is part of the debate. There is no denying that the diesel is a beast towing, but I'm only towing 8000k lbs, and I'm in the southeast, so we've got little hills compared the out west. After 15-20 years resale is not real a huge concern. I believe the CP4 problem and warranty denial was a Ford problem. GM and RAM seem to have far fewer problems. If you are stuck in the Ford camp then I guess you get what you deserve. The new Ram Cummins welcomes you to the CP4.2 and all it's glory for years to come. I wonder if they will deny warranty claims - oh wait that was Ford. I wouldn't hold my breathe based on FCA's history on handling safety recalls. And that Ram Cummins with the CP4.2 has limited warranty so FCA will stick it to you either way.

RE: Picked up a new 2019 LTZ 2500 Duramax this weekend

Congrats and that new truck.... I would take a '19 over a '20 year model any day just on the looks alone. And good choice on that garden tractor. BTW... This truck looks exactly like my dads truck. Ha ha, I would be disowned from my wife's family if I bought any thing else but a Deere. It's a 2005 Gx345. I'm already pushing it for not driving a Ford pickup (they are super brand loyal) and that would push me out of the family for sure lol. Dan Last year we sold our last Case International cotton picker and purchased our second John Deere cotton picker with a baler. Man these are some machines.

Fish, I've know it all along that you're a closet Ram mafia guy..... Be careful unless you're planning on coming out, publicly, though. You're showing your love for them Rams!! Just simply reporting the facts... But don't worry I've spanked a many MOPAR and continue at every opportunity. :B

RE: Stranded/broke down

My wife noticed her 2014 Ford Edge Sport would take longer to start when leaving work to go home so we took it to the Ford shop and turned out to be a weak fuel pump so it was replaced under warranty. No check engine light either.

RE: Anyone towed with the new Chevy Gasser??

Impressive pull.... Now Chevy needs to dump that hideous front end and put a good looking one and it would be a good truck

RE: Ford knox sensor

Stop using the aftermarket fuel additives. You are told why your check engine light comes on. Diesel fuel already is formulated to prevent gelling right out of the pump. Isn't science amazing? Try telling that to folks in areas where temps get down to -30 to -20. My son drives an over the road tractor trailer Chicago and north into Minnesota and Wisconsin and has yest to put anything in the truck but the fuel that comes out of the pump. The refiners put in anti gel additives as it leaves the terminal. You can buy all the snake oil you want and put it into your truck to set off the check engine light and ultimately lead to a shorter life of those sensors. Its your truck and your wallet. Your dealer told you to stop. Many long hisl truck drivers that go from south to north in one tank need them because the fuel in the south doesn't have these additives. Also, aside from California and Texas that have higher fuel requirements than the US federal standards, most states only meet the minimum federal diesel fuel standards of 40 octane and lower scar value. Not saying everyone needs it, but there are those that might. 40 cetane... Also I remember a couple years ago reading another diesel forum there was a serious rash of diesel fuel gelling up north. I didn't read of many issues this past winter.

RE: Ford 6.7L 1050 ft lbs TQ at 1,600 rpm, 475 HP at 2,800 rpm

It's a good thing for the manufacturers that some of us appreciate what the new trucks have to offer. If someone where to offer me an unused '01 Super Duty or Ram free of charge with the condition that I had to park or sell my newer one and use the '01, I'd definitely turn them down. I might struggle enough to even accept the offer if it were a unused 2006 GMC Denali Duramax that was being offered. Well said.... one day last year I had to drive our 02 7.3 super duty and that drive was an eye opener and made me really appreciate my ‘12 6.7 super duty.

RE: Ford knox sensor

It was most likely a Nox sensor. Mine failed at around 110k miles and I don’t run additives.

RE: 2020 Ecodiesel Fuel Economy Tests

Ram Eco Diesel gets a EPA rating of 32mpg which is 1 less mpg than the GM 3.0 Duramax and 2mpg more than Ford 3.0 Power Stroke. Link

RE: Ford 6.7L 1050 ft lbs TQ at 1,600 rpm, 475 HP at 2,800 rpm

I’m beyond caring anymore which brand of new pickup has the highest numbers. If I could buy a brand new 1997 F350 7.3 or a brand new 1998 12-valve Dodge Cummins, I’d take it. It gets your stuff where you want it to go and it keeps doing it reliably for a long time. The way I look at it is, it’s like there’s only so much power and engine can make in its life. You can either do it all at once or slowly. I agree except I would buy a Super Duty with the 7.3L because they were much more comfortable trucks than the OBS but still super reliable, especially with the ZF6 manual transmission. The leaf spring setup on the front end of that Super Duty is not very comfortable compared to the twin coil spring setup on the OBS trucks. I will say the Super Duty cabs overall are better. And I'll take an auto in any truck configuration all day long.

RE: Has anyone looked at the Jeep Gladiator?

MSRP is off the charts, IMHO True dat. Unbelievably so actually. x12. For the money a Gladiator costs, I'd be far better ahead "tow-rig wise" buying something else.... like a full size truck. I have looked at the Gladiator a few weeks ago. The interior of the new generation Jeep is kind of nasty. Bright colors on the dash look like a Fiat. Oh wait, it is sort of a Fiat. The dash / interior of the 2011+ JK was much nicer in my opinion. I like the exterior of the Rubicon with the painted fenders, but I don't care for the Rubi red dash insert. I think if you could get a Rubicon with a Overland interior would be the best scenario.

RE: Ram overtakes GM

Again Chrysler engineers gets tossed under the bus for the car design that Marchionne approved. What does that have to do with FCA US LLC being allowed to call the shots on profitable products and brands. The 200 was not profitable and not well liked by consumers so maybe Chrysler engineers and designers should be thrown under the bus and held to higher standards for creating it. The outside design is okay, but the interior is ****. You know precisely my point... Also that LLC suffix is another specific label for another day.
