RE: 2022 Toyota Tundra Reveal

Here's the Toyota Tundra reveal. No more V8 engines! 3.5 Twin Turbo and a 3.5 Twin Turbo hybrid both backed by a 10 speed. Enjoy... Link Link 2

RE: 2023 GM HD 505hp/1085tq

With the auto manufacturers now committed to electrification powering their vehicles along with the future of half ton truck diesels being questionable, I can't help but wonder if it's time for these medium duty diesel trucks to start focusing on improving fuel economy and even simplify the emissions systems on these trucks.

Towing is about to get easier! :B

Sounds like the Chevy 2.7 has some major torque. Link

RE: 2022 Chevy Silverado Reveal

GM just seems challenged to design to front of a truck. The front of my new 2021 F150 XLT Sport looks 10 times better than this new squinting Chevy! https://i.imgur.com/OOWeSnjl.jpg I'm assuming you sold your 2015 Ram and why?

RE: Ram 3500 issue

Ram's 4wd system disengages the front axle completely when not in use unlike the Ford system which keeps the front axle spinning at all times, but locks the hubs when power to the wheels is needed. Fords U joints/axles only turn in 4wd. That's the beauty of having locking hubs on the front axle. There is after market locking hub upgrades for a Ram. I stand corrected. I was under a different impression. I am not a fan of Ford's auto hub system though. Sold a lot of them back in the say when I worked at a Ford dealership and every person that I know who has them have had them fail to move the the wheels in auto. Most recently my father in law with his 2019 about a two years ago trying to get out of the sand in Port A. Same happen with my brother's 2012 multiple times. Worked great a few times, but had to get out and actually lock them most of the times. This is why I am not a fan of auto locking hubs. Out of the hundreds of times I used my 4wd in my Ram at the farm, deer lease, and elsewhere, it has never failed. But the first time my father in law used the auto locking hubs in his new truck, he had to get out and actually lock them. Due to the design of the Ram's 4wd system, I see not need for locking hubs and an upgrade to one would be pointless unless you want to add more complexity to your system. On my last two Super Duty's with a combined ~ +400,000 miles I never had a failure or a glitch with engaging my 4wd system, and I literally switch them to 4wd when I drive in to my hunting ranch whether it's rain or shine just to simply lube the transfer case and splash some lube around in the front diff which means I probably engaged 4wd thousands of times and never had a problem. On another Ford forum I read it's like a never reported problem. I guess my father, father in law, brother, brother in law, wife's uncle, and multiple friends must be doing something wrong along with all those people I sold hubs to back in the day. Edit: A quick look up of our hub sales and service from our nine Ford dealers shows that we still sell quite a few of them. If you are not having issues then that is awesome, but many still are. There's a difference between a hub and a locker and I think you have the two confused. I've had to replace my passenger side hub a few years ago because the bearing was making a noise. The drivers side is still original with 222k miles.

RE: 2022 HD trucks delivery date

we have 3 @ F350's on order right now... my bro in law.... son in law.... and best buddy.... All 3 were ordered in March and was told probably Late August originally... 1 was in Production last week, the other 2 are scheduled for next week... 1 on 9/13 and the other on 9/15.. MSRP on highest was $79,285.00... signed for it at $ 71,000.00 Building 22's ,and they got 21's sitting unfinished , now that makes sense .My son has had a 22 on order for months ,and no build date at all . IF its a Ford, tell him to drop the Adaptive Steering and it will get scheduled.... Right now, only the King Ranch with adaptive Steering are getting scheduled.... Some components in the steering wheels is holding it all up.. Thanks . Ya its a Ford Lariat , he knew about the adaptive cruise , and canceled it . Adaptive cruise or Adaptive steering? Either way I would want both but I guess if it makes a difference between getting a truck or not you have to make a choice.

RE: 2022 HD trucks delivery date

Not so hard to believe when we depend on out-sourcing products we need ... how many of us would pay more, keep business in-house, and get our truck and products when we want or need them. Count me in !! Count me in as well...

RE: 2022 HD trucks delivery date

With all the vehicles that got flooded by hurricane Ida purchasing a vehicle will be even more difficult and the prices will probably go up even more.

RE: 2022 HD trucks delivery date

Worst time to buy anything right now unless you REALLY need it. Agreed... Your going to pay a premium and the quality is questionable.

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

Don't worry Sleepy J. is going to solve your price of your new trucks just like he has fixed everything else to date.

RE: Need advise from the Ram Owners

I had a 2014 2500 with the 6.4L Hemi and 4.10s. Had 2 Cummins trucks before the 2014 Hemi. I pulled a 12k 5er that was 37' long and had 3 slides. Never lacked for power with the Hemi. Got 7-9 mpg pulling and mid to high teens running empty hwy, depended a lot on wind. With the 8 speed, the 6.4L Hemi would be that much better than my 6 speed auto was. The diesel will pull better in every situation and get slightly better mpg while doing it. I was very happy with the Hemi, and for towing 11k intermittently, it would be my choice. I noticed starting early last year that a lot of the Ram HD trucks are powered by Hemi's and I continue to see that trend of more and more Hemi powered HD's and less Cummins. Having said that I don't think Chrysler has fixed the lifter problems on the Hemi's so I sure wouldn't purchase one if I were to keep it over 100k miles.

RE: Does the Color of an HD Pickup Make a Difference?

Does the color matter? Absolutely.... And the vehicle looks are important to me as well.
