RE: Benefit of extra fuel tank.

Me Again, again you one upped me!!! I have a 5 gallon tank and you just had to go 6 gallons.:B Had it for years. I think it is still on one of my Rubbermaid box up North. It sat in the truck trunk just above the diesel fuel door. Did not even have to take it out of the box. My super siphon would worked great to transfer the fuel to the main tank. https://i.imgur.com/Am1AHsAl.jpg https://www.amazon.com/Siphon-Original-Safety-Grade-Valve/dp/B01N5MTGQS/ref=asc_df_B01N5MTGQS/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312142020868&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=4594070942908049709&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9030012&hvtargid=pla-524056062450&psc=1 Oh boy you've just made the list for the Minute Man Moderator attacks showing off that fuel can... :B Sincerly, The Troll Hunter

RE: Ram TRX vs Cybertruck

My friends new buddy for his Charger Hellcat. https://i.imgur.com/l4aoejql.jpg I saw one a couple of months ago that went past me in the neighborhood and I almost didn't notice it. The rear end differential is what caught my eye to take a double look. It's almost a sleeper in that it doesn't stand out much from a Rebel. Pretty sure I wouldn't be caught driving around with a Hellcat sticker on the side of a car and the Cybertruck looks like it took all of 15 minutes to design the exterior.

RE: That Cummins, she’s just a ____ing machine!

When I look at that picture I see a transmission rebuild in your future. If he keeps it in its power band it will be fine. And a front suspension rebuild...

RE: Rv-ers prefer Duramax?

Full time RV parks you will see RAM's and GM's and Ford's behind them. Independently owned RV/HotShotters, RAM simply dominates that market. I don't agree with this anymore. 1. RAM is no longer a cheap truck to purchase. 2. RAM no longer offers a manual transmission. 3. RAM is no longer the fuel economy leader. Interesting fact a few years ago we pulled the camper to Florida down I10 and between Louisiana and Florida RAM's were very scarce. Cross the state line in Texas and you seen them everywhere, but then again you see a lot trucks in Texas. At Fort Wilderness again seen very few RAM's to the point you couldn't help but notice.

RE: Rv-ers prefer Duramax?

I drove one of the preproduction Dodge 5.9 cummins (still the best cummins to date) to a county fair to be put on display. Looking back at those Dodge OBS trucks they had the best quality paint jobs of all the brands and arguably the best interior, but their gas engines and transmissions were terrible. I especially liked the looks of the last refresh of these trucks in the early 90's.

RE: Rv-ers prefer Duramax?

My parents are on their second DMax Chevy truck and I have to say both have been good trucks. I will say with their current truck my Dad struggles to fill the DEF tank via under the hood fill port at his age so I typically fill it for him.

RE: GM Spokesperson admits energy to charge cars comes from coal

Didn't mean to start a show but my point is the lady from GM is representing a new electric car for the company and one would think she would be on top of the local/regional power plant sources in case questions of power infrastructure would come up. When your designing or representing an all new vehicle using alternative energy sources you better have your duck in row. Its responses like this that make you wonder if this 2nd gen EV will fail like the first one.

RE: Operational problems with new diesel pickups

You can get the same Aisin transmission with the 6.4 Hemi that you can get with the Cummins. Lol, what are you smokin,eh? Buddy if anything you said had any credibility, it was lost with this statement... And folks wonder why I seem “critical” of things in this forum..... He probably means 3500 DRW and Chassis Cab trucks with the 6.4 use the Aisin AS66RC. :B Are you saying the AISIN is not available in a 3500 SRW with the 6.4? Yes... I think the Aisin is only available for the Chassis Cab trucks (3500, 4500, 5500)

RE: F 250 vs Ram 2500

Interesting, GM has used Allison for years, yet it is bad that Ram uses Aisin? as to refined shifting, our Aisin shifts smooth loaded or empty. Ram went with the Bosch 4.2 for two year and then went back to the Bosch 3, and still make plenty of power. Chevrolet and GMC used Allison transmissions because GM owned Allison back then and the Chevy/GMC were the first to install a medium duty transmission into their trucks and the shifting quality was second to none, but they did have some problems but nothing significant. Also the Aisin's that were first installed in the Ram cab and chassis trucks where actually failure prone more than people realize and the cost to replace one was really expensive.

RE: First Tow with 2500 Ram

I have a tow caravan going to lake Powell next month with a friend towing his ski boat with his new Roush Ford 150. I tow a fully loaded Wells Cargo trailer weighing in at 6,500 lbs wth my CTD. I told him I run about 68 mph and just purr along but he says he will stay at 60 mph. I probably will have the best towing experience and mileage ever :) Spotify on and a lot of chillin. Hopefully that Ford will keep up or do the best it can LOL...Just a friendly tip that the Roush Ford 150 has a Super Charged 650 HP engine. The only reason your friend might be behind you is because he chooses to.

RE: F 250 vs Ram 2500

I don't know if I can justify the payment. I'd like to stay a half ton, but I cannot get the box/cab configuration. So, I am now looking at what will work for me. I know that Cummins recommended a more expensive 3500 with the HO CTD and Aisin, but the price difference between a 3/4 and 1 ton is negligible. I'd get a 1 ton if I could find one, but honestly there is minimal difference between most 3/4 and 1 ton trucks, other than an arbitrary class 2B distinction. In many states you can simply register a 3/4 ton for a higher weight than the 10,000 lbs Class 2B, you just have to pay for the higher weight. But if buying, might as well get the 1 ton and not deal with speculation. Ram 2500 vs 3500: 2500 has coil springs and sway bar and a 3500 has leaf springs and both share the same rear end. Power train the 2500 has less HP and Torque with the less than desirable 68RFE chrysler transmission. Ford F250 vs F350: F350 has a larger spring pack than a F250. The F350 also has a larger read end. Having said that if you get a F250 with a trailer package option then it comes with the same spring pack and rear end as a F350. Power train the F250 and F350 share the same HP and Torque and the same 10 speed transmission. So, 250 vs 2500, and 350 vs 3500 Simply open the hood. I agree look under the hood and under the truck and look at the service points if your the type that enjoys servicing your own truck like myself. Look at access to fuel and oil filters for example. Ford https://i.imgur.com/wbigzoal.jpg Ram https://i.imgur.com/WRtcSwVl.jpg My experience comes from a 2012 6.7 Power Stroke with ~211,000 miles and the engine hasn't been touched. Truck has never left me stranded nor had any problems on the road. https://i.imgur.com/TLfHIxtl.jpg

RE: Operational problems with new diesel pickups

Well our 2016 Ram 3500 DRW HO, Aisin and 3.73's we have owned just about 2.5 years, I use good quality DEF (another discussion)and change fuel filters on schedule. we have put 34,000 miles on since purchase, no issues yet. I think going back to the CP3 was a good choice, and GM uses Denso injection pump. Ford insist on sticking with Bosch 4.2, not a great choice. Huuummmm.... Link

RE: Sports chassis and similar units becoming obsolete?

We towed from Palm Springs, CA to DFW, TX with three two hour rest breaks. Seems like that was about 34 hours total time. Felt pretty darn good at the end. I have towed many 500+ mile days and felt great at the end of the trip each time. Must be the "Fancy Stitching" on the seats. ;) https://i.imgur.com/OKtDXLol.jpg I'm sure the fancy stitching is good for another easy 150 miles to anyone's trip.
