RE: New (to us) 2500 Suburban

Gas prices killed the HD suvs? Lol When full-size 4 door pickups of all flavors and 1/2 ton suvs are literally selling out as fast as any other model of vehicle? And $2 or $4 a gallon the traffic don’t seem to change around here… If anything it was the proliferation of crew cab pickups in all sizes that gained so much popularity. But I never said there’d be a market for a million of them a year. Just that the world has basically run out of good HD suvs.

RE: Ram Reduces Max Tow Ratings

The point was Ram hasn’t just randomly revised and lowered their tow ratings, regardless of whether those yootoob ding dongs think they have or not. But it is good for clicks! They did succeed at that. LOL... So you're saying Ram's towing guide website tow ratings reduction is a figment of our imagination? If so maybe Ram ran out of that fairy tail pixie dust for their tow ratings and had to pay the piper! :B The 17klb number is for the Hemi. Which must be running a little extra pixie dust to hit them numbers! Lol Back to your regularly scheduled program….

RE: Old truck, new look…

This is my weakness. Pulled fifth wheel around western states years ago. Now I take it to shows. https://i.imgur.com/Ug0vp8Zl.jpg Like button! I feel like I’ve seen that truck before online…maybe here. It’s a beautiful truck! If this one pans out, it may be my next one…. https://i.imgur.com/LsvTgpol.jpg Supposed to be all original. Not a huge fan of the Beau James trim, other than it’s rare. But factory big block, AC, cruise in a 1975 pickup is a nice combo.

RE: Old truck, new look…

And now she’ll be a mud slinger with that offset. So I’m gonna get some bulk clear film and clear bra the body below the belt line. https://i.imgur.com/9OmzE2Pl.jpg

RE: Old truck, new look…

In honor of t2r, gotta keep this drivel going! Well as suspected, the 1.5” greater negative offset wheels combined with the gnarly new shoes don’t clear the back corners of the front fenders very well. I was contemplating clearancing those when we restored the body since I had to repair them from previous damage, but I really didn’t want to cut anything and time was a factor. But the solution is only $50. Well $100 since someone cut the front axle u bolts flush and I needed another inch of thread. Off-road Designs makes “Zero Rate” they call em, 1” lift blocks essentially. And yeah lift blocks in front is a no no. However these actually bolt into the leaf pack just like adding a thick overload leaf to the bottom of the stack. They provide a larger bearing surface than springs alone and are pre drilled to offset the axle forward or back a couple increments if necessary. Given I don’t/didn’t want to go to a 6” lift in front these should work great. And provide several options for lift/axle placement. Can even experiment with no sway bar now since the springs are so stiff (haven’t been able to so far due to clearance, even with the old wheels). Or if I can get the clearance needed with the zero rate and removing the main leaf on the pack, with sway bar maybe I can soften up the front end just enough. It has Rough country front springs from a prev owner. And they live up to the first word in their name! Be good for snow plowing and not much else! Lol. Bought the shocks a bit long knowing I’d have to increase the lift. So this is like the LFP science experiments for guys who turn wrenches…

RE: New (to us) 2500 Suburban

But as dad pointed out. Just another reason our govt, as great of a country as it is, is so utterly wasteful it’s sickening……can’t wait to support them again this year soon (tax time….) $3.6M a piece to make 10 HD Subs? Just like the old $1000hammers! Isn’t this what Duraburb does for like $50k BYOS ( bring your own suburban), minus the bulletproof glass and cool radios? No kidding, that's even worse than the $1.6M presidential limousine of a few years back that's basically a mashup of a Cadillac and a GM 4500 series commercial truck with run-flat tires and a lot of armor. You know that the boys at Extensive or Kindig-it Designs could have built a way nicer car for probably $250K. You’re right! And Diesel Bros would have built a couple Duraburb limos for free probably if the gubmint agreed to quit forking with their business! But not for the current administration….lol

RE: Ram Reduces Max Tow Ratings

Maybe folks are just railing their Rams harder than other brands because the trucks are so much more burly than the other 2 mfgs! Lol Or maybe this is evidence that the folks who eat sleep and breathe truck “numbers” now have more evidence that the ratings are somewhat arbitrary and differnet for differnet reasons. But wholly why idgaf about chasing the “numbers”….. Seen a pressure washer guy workin downtown yesterday. Nice ole 2nd Gen Dodge with a big commercial Hotsy and a 500 gallon tank in the back. Truck wasn’t broke in half with 5-6klbs in the bed every day. But he probably didn’t put 10klbs of roofing in it the week before or run it in the Baja 1000!

RE: Inverter and battery sizing to power my camper microwave

No, they’re still overpriced thanks to a following due to being the first legit LFP guys. But hats off to them. I never turn down selling something for 2x what it’s worth if someone will pay me for it. And continue to do so until I can’t.

RE: Effect of no absorption on LiFePo4?

If I've posted something that isn't correct please feel free to correct it. I'd like to know if I'm spreading wrong information. Not you, bud.

RE: Effect of no absorption on LiFePo4?

Who is judging if the thread and questions are worthwhile to discuss? And then posts this drivel... Well I try to stay away from the unprovoked personal attacks, but I can understand your jealousy of me/my truck. It’s ok…as unprofessional as it might be on your part. But I’m not sorry if it’s just triggering you because it gets HORRIBLE gas mileage! Lol.

Wow, I could expect cabin fever to be setting in, in the PNW or AK. But not in Texas…. I just gotta figure out how these folks make money just being try hards on YooToob, lol.

RE: 1" to 3/8" thread adapter?

So it’s NPT for the big side? What about the 3/8 thread? If it’s NPT then you could just bush it down. That pipe cap will only get maybe 2 or 3 full threads due to the thickness of material. Is that enough to hold it?

Sucks gas? No way! Just ask the 20mpg empty guy who posted here a couple days ago! Lol

RE: New Super Duty on order

3.73s will pull 12k fine. But get 4.30s because you can and it will pull better for basically free.
