RE: That’s A Bunch Of Grass!

There were two guys buying good grass hay for 60 dollars per bale in Eastern Washington and selling it across the mountain in Western Washington for 50 dollars per bale. One said the other "we are not making any money" and the other guy said "I think we need a bigger truck!"

RE: That’s A Bunch Of Grass!

Truck it's self is probably not overloaded. Take 10k off and then take 15% of the load that's only 6,450#. My pin is 6k and I am at my RAWR of 9,750#. But the RV net weight police said...................

RE: Trailer too long for truck?

but cool looking cab over Jimmy! It was a Titan 90 Chevy not the cousin Astro 95 GMC. Just saying! 350 Detroit and 13 speed Road Ranger. Needed the 13 gears as the power band was 300 RPM 1900-2200. Screaming Jimmy! It had a cool for the day wrap around dash. https://i.imgur.com/vPQu945l.jpg

RE: Trailer too long for truck?

YEP, a 1500 can tow it but can it "HANDLE" it in unforeseen conditions. How is it less safe to pull a (the OP) 9-10klb trailer with a 6000lb+ truck rated to tow 11k, than pulling almost 30k with a 8000lb + truck rated to tow almost 30k? Seems like you are both at roughly the same % of max capacity... So, I drove a 15,000 lb(mostly aluminum) Class 8 Chevy Titan 90 tractor with 65,000 lbs of aluminum trailer and gasoline(8500 gallons) behind it. Was that an unsafe combination? The tractor was twin screw with heavy duty components and tires. 150/1500 can not be counted as heavy duty compared to their bigger brother 250,2500 and 350,3500's. Having the right tool for the job has always been important when stuff happens. https://i.imgur.com/d06szKrl.jpg

RE: Trailer too long for truck?

Tow a 8k TT with overall length of 27' with 3500 SRW Ram diesel back and forth to Arizona. I would not want to do it with a 1500. Been in windy conditions and the 8500 lbs truck keeps it planted.

Isn't time to put this thread out to pasture? Welcome to the internet, folks! We all have our kicks. For some it's finding the most scenic route, and discussing counter-top options of the latest 5th wheel. For some it's playing Cummins / Ram engineer wannabe when it's cold and rainy :B Where is the like button? Chris

RE: Another Ford that needs to be bagged - or a dually?

Hard to tell, but the pin seems to be on a hitch too far aft. Also, the TV has to be way overloaded for that FW. I think the pin is at the axle center or in front of it. https://i.imgur.com/3EYqwoCl.jpg May just be the picture, but it looks like the rear wheels are definitely fully inflated - see barely any bulge. So... if he actually leveled the truck, wouldn't the camper be sitting on the tailgate? Sort of related - I've met too many guys who see the "off road" package for a truck and assumes it will also tow great. Of course the salesmen don't help, they just push them out the door. I try to gently point out the differences. And the trailer would be really nose high!

RE: Another Ford that needs to be bagged - or a dually?

I don't think the owner did any research but at least it's color coordinated. If this isn't addressed promptly, they'll likely be a Utube video. One more thought, I could easily see the tread life of front tires exceeding 100K. OH, it will be OK when he loads the garage and fuel tank in the rear!

RE: Another Ford that needs to be bagged - or a dually?

Typical of a lifted suspension. Man that trailer must be 43ishfeet long. Well that explains it! It happen pretty fast and I was busy trying to take pictures. I guess if it was a Ford the rear bumper would have been dragging on the pavement.

RE: 2021 Cummins 1075 lbft peak torque at 1356 rpm

Do more gears always help. Last summer we bought a Ford Edge ST with the 2.7L twin turbo V-6 with 335hp and 380lbft. It was the new 8 speed transmission. The previous Edge Sport with 315HP and 6 speed transmission is slightly faster 0-60 and in the 1/4 mile.

^ I understand the concept and terminology. I'm simply confused as to what your point is. So is he. :h I didn't think I was confused but now I'm beginning to think I must be.:) Clear as the Palm Springs, CA skies today! Cloudy day there today Ron?

RE: 2021 Cummins 1075 lbft peak torque at 1356 rpm

^^^ You may have been happy with a 6 speed transmission but the shape of the 2015 Cummins torque curve was very similar to that of the Powerstroke ..... 250.lbft less but more or less parallel. Yours has a torque rise of 106 lbft over 1200 rpm. The torque rise of the 2021 HO Cummins is 287 lbft over 1000 rpm. I hardly ever turn high RPM even towing a 24,500 combine on the Hilly West Coast.
