RE: Ford super duty 3.31 rear end. Will it be a big mistake. ?

Fords 3.31 vs 3.55 gears with the torqshift 10 speed @ 60 mph on 33" tires shows 7th gear = 164 rpm difference 8th gear = 125 " " ". 9th gear = 99 " "". 10th = 93 " "" I doubt the 6.7 diesels big HP/torque will notice much difference. Now the 7.3 gazzer may work a bit better with the 3.55 gears.. This is correct, either ratio will work great with the 6.7. You will not notice a 100-200 rpm difference. Sure on paper the 3.55 will pull slightly better, but seat of the pants while driving they will feel the same.

RE: Ford super duty 3.31 rear end. Will it be a big mistake. ?

^^^^At 25000 lbs and on 7% grade a 475 hp truck will pull down to about 58 mph. The difference in 3.31 gears vs 3.55 gears is this: If the truck with 3.55 gears and 34” tires will be running at 2600 rpm in 6th gear it can put out 475 hp. The truck with 3.31 gears and 34” tires will be running at 2800 rpm in 5th gear at about 56.4 mph and it will be putting out about 462 hp. But if the hill gets a little steeper the 3.31 ratio equipped truck gains hp as it slows down where as the 3.55 equipped truck will loose power as it slows. So really both gear ratios will perform extremely well with loads under about 18000 lbs. once you get into dually territory 3.31s are no longer as desirable nor are they available. 4X4ord nailed it either ratio will work great.I doubt you would notice much difference between the two when driving.

RE: Zero-G water hoses

I have a zero g hose and a flexzilla I like them both and they both work much better than the cheap white hoses. My zero g hose is the gray color, the only issue I have with it is at times when it is laying on the ground in the grass it can look very much like a snake.

RE: Blue DEF

Here’s a helpful item if you typically use the boxes or jugs of DEF. this is a Ford part, and you can order it on Amazon for about $10. It fits on any jug or box of DEF, and I *believe* the DEF fill ports on vehicles are all the same, so the o-ring on the dispensing end of the spout will make a seal when it’s pushed down into it. You can then turn the DEF jug upside down if you want and there will be no leaks. The DEF tank will fill until it’s full, and nothing will spill out. It’s a handy item. https://i.imgur.com/UT864upl.jpg :):) This a great tool it works well.There are no leaks and it stops when full. Remember to not overfill your DEF tank if you are in freezing temps, DEF will freeze.

RE: Cleaning Black AC cover and other black items

303 is a very good product but I think it works best to keep it from fading in the first place.If it has already faded. The 303 will make it look black as you found out,but won't last long. Once it faded I think you will need to paint it or replace it.

RE: Is camping Fun Anymore

We camp mostly in our Pennsylvania state parks and never have a problem.If there is a issue i'm sure the rangers would take care of it quickly. All the state parks I have stayed at by 10 pm you can hear a pin drop.

RE: Towing Travel Trailers

I tow about the same size trailer with my F350 and I have no issue with sway,I do feel the push when being passed by large trucks.It is more of a suck then push feel,that is called the bow wave effect,and you will always feel that to some degree. With a proper sized truck and a properly set up w/d hitch you will have no problems. For that size trailer I recommend at least a 250/2500 and up series truck.

RE: New Truck 4x4 or 4x2 ??

4wd LOW RANGE is nice for placing RV on high blocks or backing up steep grade. It takes a lot of stress off the trans. Just DON'T be turning on solid ground as it can cause damage of the front axle if the tires can't sip. My 98 RAM I added a 4 low axle disconnect that allowed the rear tires to be in low range, that was NICE!!! That is one thing about my old F-250 It did not have the auto locking hubs only manual. If I needed low range all I needed to do was put the lever into the 4 low position,had low range without the axle bind.

RE: New Truck 4x4 or 4x2 ??

If you don't need it get the 4x2. I will say that my truck can get stuck on wet grass in 2wd. Where I live you will have a hard time finding a 2wd truck on any dealer lots,and if you was trying to sell one you would have a real hard time selling it.

RE: sticky slides

Do not put any oil based product on your rubber slide seals, it can destroy your seals. As DRSmart I also use 303 it works great. Spray silicone will also work.

RE: Slide - In or Out

As long as the trailer is set up and leveled there is no harm done in leaving the slides out. Unless there is a chance of getting snow or ice build up on them.
