@monkey44, I think you're thinking of Lariat. That's a Ford trim level, or used to be, idk if they still use that name.

It is funny how many truck models or trims are all Western, big country, cowboy type nomenclature. Apparently a Ram "Cincinnati" model, or a Chevy "Cleveland" would not pack the same punch! LOL

Regardless, it's a fine truck and nothing to worry about.


An Ohio themed trim would certainly pack a punch but I'm not sure the marketing folks are trying to make people think about strip clubs, Waffle Houses and despair.


Nice one! You knew where I was going with that...lol

I went to High School with Jerry Sherrod, founder of Sherrod conversions in Waycross. I’m not a fan of lifted vehicles or other custom items. Jerry started out customizing vans when it was really popular during the early 70’s. One doesn’t stay in business unless they have a good product.


Lol, I looked at their "mod" packages and I guess they're "good"?
Just one order from 4wheelparts and some overpriced leather set covers (generally installed on a truck that has factory leather seats already....[emoticon]).

It's not a product, it's just bling. And their lifts are cheapo lifts, at that.

@m44, I don't see Sherrod advertising anything but 1/2 ton truck and SUV "packages".
Interested what was done to your 1 ton dually. Seems all their packages involve their cheesy "in-house" lift kits as well.
Back when conversion vans were new and/or a "thing", it was a little different. They, and others, were offering something that wasn't commercially available from the OEMs or large aftermarket parts suppliers. They were turning work vans into shaggin wagons.
Their new "customs" are just a handful of bolt on parts I could order online before my coffee break and install with a basic set of tools (save for the lift kits, of which there are a dozen mfgs to choose form and many that blow away the cheap junk under their trucks.

It's a good reminder that if you're a good enough salesman, you can get anyone to buy anything!
m44, this is not directed at you or your daughter, as it appears she bought the only truck she could find out of need, but in general, who buys this cr@p?

Stick with MOPAR and FleetGuard filters. Donaldson Blue and AMZ/OIL oil filters are top quality. Be aware the MOPAR oil filter does NOT have the synthetic media. So run the two above or the FleetGuard StrataPore oil filters.

What's wrong with 15/40??

Nothing wrong with 15/40 on your 2017. 5w/40 or 10/30 (temp dependent) is the oil needed for the 2019+ CGI engines with the hydraulic lifters. 5/40 T6 rotella is a great all around oil for the widest temperature ranges.
