RE: 2018 RAM 6.4L Farkles and D vs G

I go back and forth a lot. My 2001 7.3 does pretty ok at pulling my trailer, so for now I think I’m going to just keep fixing it. Maybe in 5 years or so I will buy a 7.3 gas rig.

RE: New 7.3 vs old V-10

Define struggle. High RPMs, but holding speed, high RPMs and losing speed or something else?

RE: Rough Riding Ram vs Floats like a Feather Ford

I think he was just pointing out that it wasn’t a fair comparison.

RE: Auxiliary fuel tank?

I have an in bed RDS tank I bought used. It really makes it nice. I’m a little paranoid and if my gauge drops below 1/2 I get nervous. Below 1/4 and I’m in a panic. So now just as soon as my gauge drops off from full, I know my auxiliary tank is empty and I only have 28 gallons left. I will usually start looking for fuel when I only have 3/4 of my tank left. This will usually keep me above half and out of the panic zone. Depending on where I’m at, that gives me a range of about 350 miles. If I were to run all the way to empty, I could probably go 550 miles or so. For me to run that low it would have to be a life or death situation.

RE: 2017 F350 6.7. Inspection?

I really wouldn’t put much faith in car facts. Unless it is an insurance claim, or something done at a reporting repair shop it wouldn’t show up. I had the front end of my last car torn up big time when I hit a pig on my way to work. Fixed it myself, no way that would show up on car facts. I do all my maintenance, so none of that goes on there. I guess the difference is that my cars are old and have a TON of miles on them, so not something someone would run car facts on anyway.

RE: F450 tires. I should have done this years ago.

I am thinking about getting a 450. Can you explain why commercial tires can’t be balanced? Seems like you could balance them the same as any tire.

RE: Used 2011 F350 6.7. Do I need to purchase warranty?

I say put $5,000 in the bank and call that your warranty.

RE: Chucking

Thanks, the video was good. Maybe I don’t feel it because I use an Andersen Ultimate hitch
LanceRKeys 02/11/20 03:26pm Fifth-Wheels

Could someone explain what chucking is? I have pulled a fifth wheel for thousands of miles and either I have had chucking and didn’t notice or I didn’t have it.

RE: What is wrong sir?

Quick go ask him how much he wants for the a/c unit.

RE: 2020 Ford 7.3L Ike Gauntlet

My 7.3 manual gets 16 mixed around 9 towing. I drive about 6,000 miles a year, half of that is towing. Fuel mileage isn’t my biggest concern. If money were a concern I would just keep my current truck.

RE: 2020 Ford 7.3L Ike Gauntlet

I do think that the 7.3 gas will be a great upgrade from my 7.3 diesel.

RE: 2005 F150 tow rating

While your at it, good time to go ahead and change the diff fluid.

RE: 2020 Ford 7.3L Ike Gauntlet

Not really because a hot rod 7.3 making 600hp would be much cooler!

RE: 2020 Ford 7.3L Ike Gauntlet

I drive my diesel less than 10,000 miles a year, it probably only cost me a couple thousand more than a gas truck. I do my repairs myself and they aren’t all that expensive. My truck has no emissions control issues and never will. Oh, your talking about NEW diesel trucks.... If I ever get a new truck I may get the 7.3, for no other reason than the fact that I think it’s cool. And so I can continually answer the question: “ Why didn’t you get a diesel?” No doubt the new 7.3 pulls a trailer better than my old 7.3.

RE: F350, 10k GVWR differences

Buy what you want and have someone make you new emblems and door stickers.

RE: F-150 HDPP?

2 separate trailers. Open car hauler, small enclosed swap meet trailer. Classic air cooled Volkswagens.

RE: F-150 HDPP?

I apologize, my original post was a little misleading with the way I worded it. I should have proof read it a little closer. Not a troll, I read the posts here daily and contribute where I can. This has actually been a very helpful discussion. My dad has several show cars, and there is a chance he may haul one with the truck from time to time, so you post was actually very helpful to me even though I was on another thought process when I created the post.

RE: F-150 HDPP?

Not hauling a car in the trailer. It’s a 6x12 enclosed trailer.
