RE: SRW vs Dually

This one is easy. DRW if you need the carrying capacity because you need it. If you don't, SRW because they're better in every other way. Except! if a tire blows out towing a trailer...SRW not better :) If it’s a front tire you are still jacked up

RE: Midsize car for towing

The Ford Fusion has a 2000 lb rating if you get the 2.5 Ecoboost. The Subaru cars have decent towing. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: What is a 6.0L Chevy engine

The 6.0l is a LS based V8 that was available in 2500 series and up trucks and in some limited capacities in the 1500 series trucks. For a Suburban 2500 in the early 2000’s it is the base motor. Later examples 07-13 (ish I think) it was the only offering. You could get a 6.0 in a Yukon Denali or a Cadillac Escalade in the early 2000’s as well. It’s a tough motor and reliable as an anvil. It is head and shoulders better than a 350 small block. Great motors. While the pesky spark plug spitting issue in the Fords was a bit overblown...I would say that the 6.0 is as reliable if not slightly more reliable than the 2v Ford Modular motors. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Which WDH?

When I had my dually I towed my trailer with and without the WD Hitch and found no real difference in handling. The trailer had a little wiggle in it but that would have easily been handled by couple of weld on sway bar tabs and two sway bars on my shank. I did run my WD hitch when I carried a load in the bed. For us a load in the bed was about 1200 or so lbs. Thanks!

RE: New to Me Chevy Tahoe

CONGRATS! Thank you! Also, as to the cylinder deactivation, I will check on that for sure. I thought that was a 2015 and up addition but I will make sure it doesn’t apply to my 2011. Thanks! Jeremiah I believe it started in 2007 with the new body style. My 2011 Silverado had it, I picked up a Diablo tuner to deactivate mine. Down there in the little menu thing on the dash there is an instant economy display that shows when its running in V4 or V8 mode. You will have to scroll through the options to find it. Oh and congrats, nice ride! Thank you! Yes I see it! Thank you. I will look in to turning this feature off. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: 1/2 ton or 3/4 ton

The answer is it depends. Lightly loaded half ton truck with 175 lb man and a 120 lb woman and a mini dog... no problem. 1,000 lbs of flesh in the Cab plus a bed full of camping gear and 1,000 lbs of tongue weight and you are looking at an average half ton waiting for a scene of the accident Thanks!

RE: New to Me Chevy Tahoe

Nice new ride there Jeremiah! I still remember your days with the old F150 and the F350 dually! Take care! Mitch https://i.imgur.com/XG8H0uzm.jpg?1 Yes sir! From one extreme to the other! I’m just glad to be back in a bigger vehicle again. Thanks! Jeremiah

New to Me Chevy Tahoe

Hey Everyone, My wife and I picked up a new to us 2011 Tahoe today. We are pretty excited about this one. Here are the nerdy specs 2011 Tahoe 5.3l V8 6 Speed Transmission 3.08 rear axle 116k miles 2wd (I’ve been looking for years for a good 2wd, they are scarce because most people want a 4x4 or the 2wd are worn out from use) About 1550 lbs of payload 5,500 lbs tow rating IMMACULATE leather interior (minus the broken dash) Runs like a scalded dog Towing in the future? Probably. A fishing boat for sure. A Travel Trailer? Maybe a small one. I am not really interested in towing a 32 ft TT with this. Anyway, here is a pic of me and the new to us Tahoe. Looks pretty snazzy https://i.imgur.com/LswjeYxl.jpg Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: I think I'm stuck.

Personally, I wouldn’t ask them if I could do it or not. It’s my property, I’d just go do it. X2 I’m removing the windows and adding the putty tape myself. You can probably buy a roll at that dealership and fix it all, winterized and everything by the time the truck cooled off after being shut down. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Clickbait truck ads

My local Chevy dealership is offering Crew Cab Silverados for about 29k. They are 2wd 4.3 models with chrome appearance packages AND you have to qualify for all of the discounts but they are pretty affordable right now. But a HD CC 4x4. Naa, not under 30k. Closer to 40k. Lol

RE: What is your towing experience with Chrysler Pacifica

Here is a link to a write up I did concerning my experience with a 2014 Town & Country towing a PUP. Towing with a Minivan YMMV. Thanks Jeremiah

RE: 2020 GM/Chevy gas 6.6L max towing test

Just gear down. no problem. 5,000 rpm is music to my ears. I’m excited about these new gas trucks. A lot of clubs and stuff mentioned about diesel and gas. At the end of the day, buy what works for you and your family. I don’t really care what anyone else thinks about my decisions. Boring, reliable, and beautiful. Drama free gas motors. Thanks and JMHO Jeremiah

RE: Tail wagging the dog?

I see it all the time. Mostly in the slow lane doing about 55-60. Spending 30-45k miles commuting per year on interstates, I see a lot of different rigs. Tahoe's and Subs and Expeditions tow those things all the time. Set them up right and there is not much tail wagging going on. 7,700 GVWR isn't much weight. I pulled mine (7,700with a 97 F150 and would do it again today if I still had that truck. The length can be an issue but it can be handled nicely with a well set hitch, tires, and common sense. I do see my fair share of HD trucks pulling fivers at 80 plus MPH. They get along just find too. I just mind my own business and treat them all the same. I give them all a wide berth. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Experience/Opinions on a 2008 F450 for Towing

I’d steer clear and look for one with a V10. Thanks!

RE: Hitch choice

I didn’t read all of the other posts, but man, don’t be depressed! You are getting, arguably, the best non air ride, rail mounted, fifth wheel hitch on the market! Never mind it’s pretty affordable and looks great! Thanks and please enjoy! Gotta watch these forums, after you leave them you will be considering a MDT OR HDT just to go camping. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Replace landig gear disney world rv park

Buddy of mine did that same thing in the same place. We ended up on big scissor jacks and jack stands for the trip and had the legs fixed at home. Big Bottle jack, giant jack stands under the frame of the fiver. Worked great. Google Harbor freight...I think there is one 30-40 minutes away from you. You

RE: I asked for trouble and I got it.

No way I would pay 2k to replace a fuel line and a fuel pump. And the suspension components to that price and it gets a little more agreeable. And the fact that he didn’t diagnose the brake lines which was a common issue for those vehicles makes me even more suspect. Second opinion is recommended. Thanks!
