RE: Ram TRX vs Cybertruck

My boss just got a gray TRX. Its a nice truck, sounds great and is very fast but other than that it looks like a Rebel. They are obviously different when parked next to each other but on its own it looks like any other Ram. He had a Raptor before it and at least you could tell it was a different animal looking at it.

RE: Nokian Rockproof tires?

These NITTO's have been great. Quiet, good traction, long tread life and they don't hold rocks. OH and they are US Made. My Son gets over 50k on these and does a lot of towing. https://i.imgur.com/3I5r2jSl.jpg I have these on my truck, they are great tires for sure but I wouldn't call them quiet. But then again I went from Goodyear Wranglers to these. They weren't cheap either but dang they look good.

RE: Tell me about your 2011-16 F250 6.2L

Be sure the front end is in good shape, we've had our 2018 in twice now for the death wobble and we only have 40k on it. I do think the ride is pretty good and other than the death wobble thing it's been a solid truck. Gas mileage isn't great but it is a 3/4 ton truck with a gas engine so we weren't expecting much.

RE: 2022 Grand Wagoneer

Looks like a Durango and a Commander had a kid, I don't hate it. Prices are just getting ridiculous though, 100k for a daily driver seems insane to me.

RE: Fog lights on w/ High Beams, New GM trucks

I read somewhere that the glare of the foglights can affect your long range vision at night since the brightest light is right in front of the vehicle and not further out. Driving down the highway at 65 mph I doubt any of us would have time to react to anything that our fog lights lit up before we were on it. I'm not going to lie though, driving down some back road I would love to have as much light as possible on the road in front of me so I could see where it would come in handy.

RE: Death wobble

We have a 2018 F250 at work that suffered from the death wobble. It had just over 20k miles on it when it started. Ford added or replaced the steering damper, aligned it, and recommended new tires. ........ We are at 35k now and it is starting to come back,. Something else in the front end is probably wearing out. Ball joints / or the like. Had 1 pretty new Superduty at work, 09 or 2010 model, back in 09-10. It was a death wobbling pos. Wasn't my truck or part of my team, but it was so new that it really couldn't have been worn out. Idk what the fix was , but betting a bad tire or caster way off and the right stretch of road. Guy said it would do it in the same spot, but not elsewhere. Its a work truck that gets beat on daily, I wouldn't be surprised if its been knocked out of alignment or something.

RE: Death wobble

My 87 Jeep Wrangler YJ started the death wobble a few years back and I took it to a national tire shop and they did an alignment but it still had the wobble. Took it back to them and they rechecked it and said they needed to shim the axle so I told them to do so. They said they tried to order shims but could not find any available. I took the Jeep to a fleet truck shop that only works on big trucks and they agreed if it would fit their machine they would work on it. It fit and they shimmed the axle with shims they carried in stock and it stopped the problem.. I have not had any problem at any speed or on any highway. This was likely a caster issue. Lifted springs? Yes many things can cause it. No lifted springs. The Jeep still original. It was a total alignment problem. Not all alignment shops can properly align a vehicle.

RE: Death wobble

We have a 2018 F250 at work that suffered from the death wobble. It had just over 20k miles on it when it started. Ford added or replaced the steering damper, aligned it, and recommended new tires. We put new tires on it after getting it back from Ford and all is well, for the most part. We are at 35k now and it is starting to come back, a minor shaking can be felt momentarily through the steering wheel after hitting bumps/expansion joints on the highway. Probably could use another alignment, it is a work truck and gets driven like one.
