RE: Ford pickup recall

The wording of this is confusing. Not all of those Super Dutys from 2017 have an electric "release". My tailgate has an electric lock but if it's unlocked, the tailgate doesn't open...mine still has to be opened and lowered manually.

RE: What is this make?

The wheel well opening does't look like the teardrop opening Scotty used many years. Maybe a Forester or Pathfinder?

RE: 4-Corners

Looks like it's just $3 a person now. I assume this is on Navajo reservation. https://www.newmexico.org/listing/four-corners-monument/1786/

RE: Buying a used diesel

We put $3200 into a work 2008 F-550 (6.4) last year that had 75k miles on it. The high pressure fuel pump went out. The cab has to be removed (yes, you can also take apart most of the front clip) but the time in labor on these is expensive.

RE: Wrong Equipment?

Maybe he’s from the Carolinas, some of them like that look even without a trailer. I thought the same thing. Probably on air bags. I had an S-10 with hydraulics that would do that front and back.

RE: Wrong Equipment?

where's the anti-weight police crowd?:R None needed. That's true Darwinism at work there. The problem will rectify itself.

RE: Anybody else have trouble packing for camping

Yes, I tend to get stressed before a trip. Best thing I have found is to start getting prepared a week before. Make a list and keep it where you and your spouse can see and add to it. We stage clothing, bedding, supplies and non-perishable items the night before we pack and check off the list as we go. It gets easier with time but I still get stressed if I'm the only one packing everything and when its the first trip of the season.

RE: Notify Moderator function

It’s been broken for months. No, the message doesn’t go thru. There’s a work around in one of the threads here.

RE: Hulu price increases TWICE this year!

I'll stick with the ads and my antenna for OTA channels for $5.99.

RE: Current crop of SUV'S

I doubt there is any agreement on what defines an SUV. GM still makes truck framed SUV (Tahoe, Blazer, Suburban) and they have their niche. I think many that had one (including me) got away from them because of their lumbering ride, poor fuel mileage and high step in....all traits we over look if we wanted to tow something with those SUVs. The majority of the SUV buyers doesn't want that. They want a smooth ride with descent fuel economy they can haul the family around in. I don't believe marketing is responsible for the decline of the full-framed SUV, it's consumer demand. Personally, I'd rather have a truck bed than the 3rd row of seating when it comes to a TV. Huntindog, yes VW, Volvo, BMW, Porche, Buick and Subaru make station wagons thought I use that term loosely.

RE: Texas couple killed

Mexican police have made an arrest. No news on extradition back to the states, though. https://www.kztv10.com/news/local-news/mexican-reports-indicate-arrest-of-adam-curtis-williams

RE: Texas couple killed

An arrest warrant has been issued for Adam Curtis William (Utah resident) and his girlfriend in connection with this case. I can’t get a link posted but it’s in all the local news sites in Corpus.

RE: South Dakota, July 2020

We did a similar trip in June, omitting Deadwood, Wounded Knee museum and Devils Tower (been there before) but adding Mt Rushmore, Wind Cave, Needles Highway and the 1880s train. You will have plenty of time to see all that in 8-10 days. I agree with wing_zealot that Wall Drug is 2-3 hours tops...The Badlands and the museum will add 3 hours too so it would be a day trip at the most. Before my trip, some had suggested we stay near Wall overnight and hit those attractions (Wall, Badlands) but we stayed in Custer the entire time and the drive from Custer wasn't bad.

Missing couple camping on Padre Island confirmed dead

This couple from New Hampshire went missing Oct 16th after camping south of Bob Hall Pier near Corpus Christi. They went south to a remote part of the beach in Kleburg County (assuming to avoid the Nueces County parking fee) but their family never heard from them again. Their truck and RV were seen spotted crossing into Mexico a few days later. I grew up in Corpus and we camped on Padre Island multiple times when I was a kid...this is heartbreaking. KIII news report

RE: Back up camera

The Haloview brand cameras get pretty good reviews on Amazon and they (Haloview) sell a separate $10 adapter for Furrion mount plates.

RE: HITCHGRIP Carrying Tool

Really like mine when it comes to carrying around my Equilizer head. The tool makes it balance much easier and I can carry it with one hand, not two...and I don't have to touch the greasy ball head. The tool is made of nylon/plastic with steel jaws at the opening...it probably weights 1.5 lbs.
Iraqvet05 10/30/19 09:11am Travel Trailers

16,000 lbs?? I wouldn't begin to try to tow 16k with my truck.

RE: "Will my new truck tow it?"....YES, it will.

The 300k weight maybe correct. Remember Toyota towing the Space Shuttle which was also around 300k? They aren’t going for legality or speed, but marketing. Freight trains pull tons of cargo with electric motors, it’s about time a truck dies the same.
