RE: 6.6 gas with ten speed?

Now they need to come up with an 8.1L to compete with the Ford 7.3!

RE: Build my TV

Park the big three dually one tons next to each other, have someone blindfold you and sit in each truck. Whichever seat fits you the best, buy that one.

RE: Ford F-250 7.3 Gas Engine Axle Ratios

Does tow mode automatically lock out 9 and 10, or do you force it to do that? Still towing in OD, not bad!

RE: Ford F-250 7.3 Gas Engine Axle Ratios

Do you need a 4.30 rear axle with 7.3 liter engine? Texas is far from the Rockies, Sierra and Appalachians. Not all parts of Texas! I can be in the Rockies in a few hours.

RE: Mystery squeak found

Check the cable that holds your tire up. I had one break while towing my fifth wheel.

RE: Hit a bump and lost my transmission

How much would it cost to rent a truck for 10-15 days a year?

RE: 2021 Ram 3500 H.O.

They are competitively priced, not cheap, but competitive.

RE: 2012 F-150 tow rating

Really, the best solution is to buy the trailer you like best and try pulling it with the 150, if your truck isn’t enough get a SRW 350. Towing will be easy again. Then, since you have a big truck, get a bigger trailer....

RE: Should I get a new Tow Vehicle or a Bigger Gas Tank?

Now the wait for a review after the first tow....

RE: Those that have tuned or programmed

Appreciate you guys turning my thread into your own personal sh!t show. No kidding!

RE: Those that have tuned or programmed

My tuner doesn’t save me much time on a 5 hour drive, it may save a down shift (standard transmission) but I like to tinker with things, so I enjoy seeing what the truck will do.

RE: Those that have tuned or programmed

I have a hydra tuner on mine which has 3 different tow tunes depending on the weight. I always use a tow tune. Tow tunes are made to keep your EGTs in check, a performance or eco tune may not do that.

RE: Towing Safety Tech

We have adaptive cruise in our expedition, no way does it follow far enough back to be towing a trailer. On it’s furthest setting it is closer to the person in front of me than I care to be. I’m in the keep it simple and pay attention camp. I drive, my wife navigates.

RE: Time to retire the 7.3 OBS?

I had to tow my truck to the shop on my last vacation, bearing failure damaged axle housing $3,800 repair to a truck I paid $8,000 for (2001 7.3) I wanted a new truck bad for a while, but I’m over that now and back to saving my pennies for a house with a shop. Any truck you get no matter how new or expensive can leave you stranded. If you want a new truck get one, but know that the cheapest route is to probably just keep yours going.

RE: Michelin Defender LTX Discontinued ??

I wish I would have bought some for my last set. I got BF Goodrich Commercial tires, too noisy for my taste.

Almost found a truck

I’m not really looking for a truck, but I was driving by the ford dealership and noticed a gas truck, so I pulled in to check it out. Long bed, check; crew cab, check; cloth seats, check; vinyl floors, check; 7.3, check; 4.30 check; F350..... nope. If it was a 350, I would have really been impressed, but for some reason it’s a 250. Oh well, guess I’ll keep driving my old truck.

RE: Unlikeliest of engine swaps!!

I admire anyone that takes on and completes a project like that.

RE: Spendy used tow vehicle

If you have a wreck or major mechanical repair and fix it yourself, it doesn’t show up on carfax either. The last car I sold had quite a bit of front end damage when I hit a pig, I fixed it myself and it wasn’t on car fax. The car I have now has obviously had the rear bumper replaced (doesn’t quite match) and it had a clear car fax, most people would never notice the replaced bumper, but I’m the sunlight almost everyone I show can see it. I wouldn’t pay for or trust a car fax report, I trust my own senses much better.

RE: New and confused

You really should do something more substantial than a suburban. Check out a ram 3500 single rear wheel with the mega cab. The cab will help with the rear facing seats.

RE: GM 6.6 gas

The 4 overdrive gears may not be useful for towing, but the first 6 gears sure are nice to have.
