RE: I finally got my 3500

Run the hell out of it in TH and EB. It’s a learning trans. Do so and you will later thank me. With a repair bill... Op, Congrats on the new truck. I guess you know best as you are the RV. NET in house RAM/CUMMINS expert. You two have an unusual relationship! :) :)

RE: Upcoming Full Size GM SUVs

I had a 1963 Suburban and the 292 I-6 got a little knock, so I installed a mild 283 and keep the granny gear four speed tranny. With 3.73 out back it cruised on the freeway much better with the V-8. Two parts needed to do the swap. The passenger side motor mount tower and the V-8 OEM fan shroud. Looked like it had always been there. Towed an E racing runabout flat bottom all over the NW with it in the early 70's for my buddy.

RE: Current GM / Chevy Reliability

Big “C” plus AISIN both true a Medium Duty. Look on the Highways, vast majority of independently owned RV Haulers and HotShotters drive RAM Trucks. But they now have hydraulic lifters and a CP4.2 pump so they can't be medium duty. https://img.clipartimage.com/royalty-free-little-boy-pissing-clip-art-vector-images-little-boy-peeing-clipart-493_612.jpg

RE: SWR 5th wheel towing

Loaded heavy for full timing for a year and a half. Steer 5120 TV rear 6620 TV Total 11740 Trailer axles 12780 Combined 24520 Truck ready to tow 8900(GVWR 11,700), Truck licensed to 12K in Washington. Truck's manufacture's GCWR 25,300. Trailer 15620(GVWR 16K) Trailer 39'4"L 13'3"H, combination made two round tips from Washington to Arizona. Mountain passes and high winds. I choose this particular trailer due to the low 2435 dry pin weight. No Washer/Drier, no gen set. Towed great. B&W manual slider on Demco picture frame in RAM pucks. Because of front bed box slider was always used to be able to release the B&W king pin latch. Slide back at check in area, slide forward after straightening out on exit road/street. https://i.imgur.com/kvhBkn9l.jpg Here is the truck with a tad over 3K behind the rear axle. Everything stock, no air bags or other add on. https://i.imgur.com/K7MxV5El.jpg

RE: 4WD or 2WD

I am pretty sure no one is buying a 4X4 just so that they can have a sticker on the side of their truck. I don't see the marketing departments of the various OEM's pushing 4X4 over 4X2 either. You don't have to push what people are already buying by what 95%? I don't understand the purpose of a 4X2, the logic escapes me, but I can respect someone's decision to be in the 5%ile. The fact made that pickups may soon be 4X4 only makes sense when compared to the manual transmission's fading from the option sheet. There are very likely currently more manual tranny drivers than there are 4X2 drivers and yet the manual option is gone. The costs of providing both 4X2 and 4X4 as an option is certainly much higher than either auto or manual tranny. Since vehicle height is brought up often as a reason for 4X2, perhaps offering a slammed 4X4 as a new pickup option or maybe a yearly subscription to a yoga studio would help with that. What he said ^^^^^^^^

RE: 2017+ Powerstroke 6.7 Fuel Filter

Others prefer to go through the top. Yep! Changed mine last week from the top. Magic Creeper was great for getting to drain plug. https://magiccreeper.com/ Chris

RE: Pullrite Superglide or Demco Hijacker?

If you do not mind manually sliding, B&W now makes a manual slider for the Ford puck system. https://www.suspensionconnection.com/rvk3370-companion.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIvN2K2Pq14wIVB7vsCh3CygPwEAQYAyABEgJVB_D_BwE I have one of their manual sliders and always slide it back at check in and back to tow position after straightening out on the exit road. Never a problem in normal towing going forward. Chris

RE: Gas TV for a year long trip

Lifestyle creep I guess. You couldn't carry on a conversation in his old truck going down the highway. Now a new Tradesman doesn't enough features or good enough seats. That payload sticker didn't used to mean much either, but it sure does now. People are definitely funny creatures. When I test drone a Tradesman a few years back the seat was like sitting on a apple crate, even compared to the 2001.5 SLT we had at the time. Reminded me of the 1980's Suzuki Vitara we test drove.

RE: 2017+ Powerstroke 6.7 Fuel Filter

That said, I have the replacement filter in front of me, and it certainly appears that all three lines are sturdy. Yes, one is half the diameter as the others, but the plastic is nearly the same thickness. Did you actual watch the video? It is not the fitting in the filter that is the issue, it is with the quick disconnect fitting on the return hose that attaches to the filter.

RE: Ram Sales Increasing

Link About 3 times more vehicles than Ram 1500 diesels: Ford Motor Co. knowingly launched two low-priced, fuel-efficient cars with defective transmissions and continued selling the troubled Focus and Fiesta despite thousands of complaints and an avalanche of repairs, a Free Press investigation found. The cars, many of which randomly lose power on freeways and have unexpectedly bolted into intersections, were put on sale in 2010-11 as the nation emerged from the Great Recession. At least 1.5 million in on the road and continue to torment their owners — and Ford. The automaker pushed past company lawyers’ early safety questions and a veteran development engineer’s warning that the cars weren’t roadworthy, internal emails and documents show. Ford then declined, after the depth of the problem was obvious, to make an expensive change in the transmission technology.

RE: Ram Sales Increasing

You know it's got to get old going thru the mail hoping your not getting another one of these! And have they sold cars with known transmission issue like Ford? https://www.freep.com/in-depth/money/cars/ford/2019/07/11/ford-focus-fiesta-transmission-defect/1671198001/ Those in glass homes should not throw stones! LMAO... And FCA received the biggest safety fine in the history of the automobile industry do to front suspension design flaws that Chrsyler, Daimler, Cerebus, and Fiat ignored. Their fix was to implement a copy of the Ford's swing arm front suspension design and even after that they Chrysler still couldn't get if right with poor quality welds on the track bar mount to the frame that required a recall. And after that they now have stearing arms that the bolts come loose and another recall to inspect and/or weld the bolts in place. Talk about a continuous chit storm. The Chrysler Corporation has produced trash 4 speed transmissions for decades and everyone just learned to accept that they're trash. Our 07 Dodge Ram 3500 has a aftermarket transmission installed by the original owner that gave up the ghost with less than 100k miles. I would say your in a glass house on thin ice fan boy. It has been over 4 hours, I think you are suppose to go see a doctor at that point.

RE: 2017+ Powerstroke 6.7 Fuel Filter

Well, then don't get mad when people take your words as yelling or disrespectful. Just saying, you might get a little further with people if you didn't talk to them that way. You can do what you want, but they can do what they want in return as well. I will just continue to return disrespect with disrespect. Makes no difference to me. I have used caps for emphasis for a word or phase for years. No one ever called me out on it. You need to get OVER yourself and realize that CUMMINS12V98 has just as much right to be here as you do!

RE: 2017+ Powerstroke 6.7 Fuel Filter

But hey, if you like taking off your air cleaner very 15k, then go nuts. No reason to remove the air filter or filter housing just the hose from the filter box to the turbo inlet. After changing the oil filters on the two B150's in the boat by braille method for 19 years the 2015 is a piece of cake. Not as easy as the old 2001.5 or the 93, but I have it down to a good routine on the 15. Just did it last week for the 8th time, all from the top. Used my new Magic Creeper. Really like it. Did not even feel the 5/8 gravel. Going to try to get Ron to help with the 60 Aisin service before I head South in Sept. Chris

RE: There's a reason to get rid of six-year-old tires.

I ran Michelin XPS Ribs on a previous 5th wheel with 5200 lb axles for 6.5 years and sold them for 200 bucks on CL with around 40K miles on them and 65% tread left. Guy that bought them was tickled pink to put them on an old Ford that he used for garbage dump runs.

RE: There's a reason to get rid of six-year-old tires.

Great looking Hitchhiker Roy. I'm guessing Goodyear g614 tires? Hope you get everything back in order soon. My rig is built a bit different than all the others in that the slide arms, wiring, etc., are pretty well protected once the slides are closed. I have nothing underneath the rig at all but an lp line and the disc brakes lines. My biggest fear is losing the brakes if I loose a tire. The only drawback I can see to e/h disc brakes is that if you loose one you loose them all. Good luck and safe travels. That size and year of HH may have come OEM with Uniroyal Laredo LT235/85R16E's. Who know's what they were replaced with besides the OP. Chris

RE: Should I get a 2020 GM 3500 DRW or a 4500?

Well it is getting to be New truck time again. Your blue text is extremely hard to read. But but, he said he does not want a blue oval!! If concerned about 3500 load and ride quality of the 4500, go test drive a Longhorn RAM 3500 daully with rear air, Aisin tranny and 4.10 gears.

RE: Performance/Efficiency versions of Cummins 6.7L

I will bet towing them side by side they will get similar mileage. No way 1-2 mpg different. Running solo maybe. Did you miss the non towing in my post? Chris

RE: 2020 Eco Diesel

The GM engineer for the 3.0 Duramax reported the new diesel had a design life span of 150k miles. Ford made a lot of diesels that would not go that far! Which Ford made diesels? The one you love! Do we have to add trucks to Ford for you to understand?
