RE: Excursion v10 Tow Rating Question

Excursion 7.3L is diesel with 3.73 gears. 11k towing, easily. Although there may be other options, the V10 gas comes with 4.10 gears. Early 7.3L Trucks (ie '95) often have 3.55 gears. No. the 5.4L gas came with 4.10`s. the V-10 had 3.73 stock and 4.30 factory option. the diesels had only a 3.73 available. SD pick ups offered different gearing options.

RE: FCA Woos Potential Buyers

And I thought Cummins owned Ford?

RE: FCA Woos Potential Buyers

I believe GM is not interested because they have no money for the deal. GM alone is on the verge of another Bankruptcy! FCA is smart in trying to add more lines to it`s division.

RE: Any Reason To Get A WDH?

He is saying the hitch rating is 910 lbs for the tongue weight. Yes I would definitely use a WD hitch. 4500lbs dry weight will be around 5500lbs ready to travel. yes it will weigh that much when loaded for a trip! so a loaded 5500 lb TT will have a tongue weight around 700lbs of tongue weight. I would get a WD hitch rated at 800/8000lbs.

RE: RV park near Chicago

There are 2 around the area that may be what you are looking for. There is a Jellystone in Millbrook IL. And there is Sycamore RV resort in Sycamore IL. I know there are a couple more out that way, but I forget what they are.

RE: Flipping RVs

Great show and no drama like some other shows! I can`t believe what some people will pay to have those restored? the last Spartan Manor they said was $100,000 after it was all done! Every time I see that show, I think the same thing!! That Spartan Manor... wasn't that $100k on top of the $40k the owner spent to buy it? I'm not sure. But even if they had $60k in parts and labor, it still seems excessive for a trailer that only needed an interior freshening and a good polish job! But what do I know, I still like to watch someone else do all that work!

RE: Is this bad?

Just flip the axles put a lift kit bigger tires this can get interesting X1/2 Rather than drop the hitch head, I would flip the axles on the trailer, this would level the trailer, and provide some much needed ground clearance. And increase wind drag as well as raise the center of gravity! I wouldn't do it!

RE: Is this bad?

I wouldn't tow it that way either. You put too much of a strain on the back tires and being nose high can easily induce sway. If the axles are leaves, the spring equalizer will keep the weight the same between both axles.

RE: Is my setup good?

Dodge guy-are you being serious? Do you just not like eaz lift hitches? Why would I need to replace it instead of setting it up correctly? No. The hitch on the truck (receiver). It should not be bent up like that. Loaded or unloaded!

RE: 6.4 Hemi first oil change

Save 1% on fuel for how much additiona wear and added cost. Sounds like a bunch of******to me. You guys are really buying into this? 1% over an entire fleet of cars/trucks is a substantial savings for a manufacturer! however, like you said there will be a little more wear because of it.

RE: Is my setup good?

Yes, get that hitch replaced! that is an accident waiting to happen!!!

RE: Is this bad?

Looks nose high! also the ball tilt needs to be backed down to bring the bars down closer to parallel.

RE: Towing above 65

How many inspect their brakes annually, know what condition the wiring is in, test periodically and know if all 4 brakes are working properly when they head out on each trip? Owners don't trust their China bomb tires but they don't think twice about brake quality and condition? If you have the 10" AlKo brakes, they may look like mine in a short period of time. Junk! I replaced everything with Dexter in about 7000 miles. The magnets are different and I hope will perform better. http://i1270.photobucket.com/albums/jj603/lynnmor/Brake%20Armature%20Wear_zpscgtfpljz.jpg width=500 Brakes now use adhesion technology rather than just friction between the lining and the cast iron drums. This results in a buildup on the drum and the need for increased pressure. The magnets then chew up the armature. Anyone that thinks there things can be counted on are in a dream world. Is there something wrong in the pic? Everything looks fine to me! All magnets/drum surface for the magnet look like that!

RE: Excursion v10 Tow Rating Question

Dodge Guy thanks for straightening me out... :) Not meant to "straighten you out", just a little more info. :@ Your one of the guys I respect here. :D

RE: Excursion v10 Tow Rating Question

The X had a 4.30 option from the factory. And from about 01 on up the hitch rating is 1250lb TW and 12,500? tow rating. I just replaced my hitch with a Curt hitch (the only company that offers a hitch for the X as of right now). It is rated at 1200/12,000.

RE: Gotta love an Outback

Yes they sure are decent trailers! But you would have had the same experience in any new trailer with a similar layout!

RE: K&N Air Filter

And yet there are millions sold, but only a very small percentage that claim a failure. And I'm sure of those failures there were other existing problems!
