RE: Ford recall

im just glad to see some of these manufacturers stepping up and trying to correct a possible issue.

RE: air bag suspension weight increase

Hmm...maybe this is correct for GM, but Ford uses a different rear axle, brakes and springs on their DRW. To the op, I can you as I was in your situation last year. Had a srw crew cab long bed diesel, bought a trailer that was at its limits. I recently upgrade to a DRW and all I can say is I will never go back, it really is that much better towing.

RE: Reaching out for advice

This is why I have an insurance agent. When my truck was hit a couple years ago they called and took care of everything for me, if you have one call them and they will help it is their job.

RE: Truck for sale ad waste of time

the drw I looked at wasn't a base model, it was a king ranch which was what shocked me seeing that someone would spend that much money and not care for it. After 2 mnutes it was obvious it had been owned by a business to plow, driver window switch was all worn, plow mount, bed had a sander bracket stil in it. The dealer made no attempt to clean it up, just kept telling me about how they will go through it after. I just looked, laughed and drove off.

RE: Using 70s/80's MDT as camper+4x4 hauler?

I didn't think a 1 ton, even a modern one, would have that kind of pay load capacity. Last time I looked at even brand new trucks, they only seemed to go up to something like 4500 lbs. my 2016 f350 drw has 5842lb on the door tag, im sure if it wasn't the platinum crew cab you could get more out of the same platform as it has a gvwr of 14k

RE: 2015 Cadillac Escalade Review

My wife has a caddy srx it hasn't cost us anymore to maintain than any other vehicle, oil changes are a few extra dollars as we use the recommended mobil 1 in it. She has just turned over 80k miles and still loves it, however I will admit I find the escalade to be a bit out of my price range at $89k!

RE: Truck for sale ad waste of time

I looked at a drw that only had 20k miles on it and was 2 years old, dealer had it priced at $52k. when I got there it looked like a dog had buried a bone in the front seat! the truck had been used for plowing and had some serious idle time, the bed was all beat up. I walked away and bought a brand new truck for an extra $10k. I discovered, at least in my area there seems to be such low volume of dually's that people and dealers think they are selling a 3 eyed unicorn.

RE: 2017 Ford Superduty Order Guide

its just the world we live in, my 2009 Harley had more Chinese parts than I could have ever imagined. Yes, some reason I feel better thinking that some of these companies have the vehicles assembled here employing Americans.

RE: 2017 Ford Superduty Order Guide

While my truck is American assembled, I bet a huge percentage of the parts are form a third world country.

RE: 2017 Ford Superduty Order Guide

no doubt, if I had ordered my truck it would have been with the 3:73, but the dealer I bought it from had this on their lot with the 4:30 and wanted it gone.

RE: 2017 Ford Superduty Order Guide

I wont be trading in my 2016 but am very curious what the price increase will be, I would expect nothing more than improvements as any manufacturer would be targeting with a new model release. I can see why ford would have changed the f350 drw gearing, the current model must have been cutting into the f450 territory. My truck has the same gearing, gvwr and is rated for a higher cargo capacity than the 450 due to its slightly lower weight. Now if you want/need 4:30 gearing you have no choice but to jump into a 450.

RE: 2017 Ford Superduty Order Guide

I saw that, but saw no mention if the f350 dually is still available with the wide track front axle. no power or tow ratings mentioned yet.

RE: Gear ratio advice 3:73 or 4:30 on Super Duty

And that's where we don't agree, I spent last season at my trucks limits and didn't like it when I did tow. I would rather be comfortable when I do need it rather than overload my truck.

RE: Check you tie downs

Before I even gave a deposit I checked the mounts since keystone claims mine can hold 5000lbs. Will they, maybe, but at least I do know they are part of the trailer frame. Sadly while I had been under there I saw where they don't take pride in their work, some of welding looked like it was done by my 4 year old grandson!

RE: Gear ratio advice 3:73 or 4:30 on Super Duty

Luckily for me I have more faith in fords engineering skills and trust that they may have thought about these things when trying to pull the highest tow rating from their 1 ton trucks.

RE: Gear ratio advice 3:73 or 4:30 on Super Duty

If you really believe that minimal difference between 3:73 and 4:30is going to wear out the rear before I replace this truck then I think your dreaming. Why would I bypass the tranny cooler, that would affect the truck no matter what gearing.

RE: Gear ratio advice 3:73 or 4:30 on Super Duty

Wow...all the expert opinions yet only a few of us with real world experience. I have a 2016 f350 drw diesel with 4.30 gears, as I posted earlier but I was slightly wrong on the engine rpms, at 70mph the truck turns 2200rpms. I have yet to experience such heat or struggle that some think I would. Also as I noted earlier I have the heavy tow package wihich gives it the wide track front axle as used in the f450. And it has tighter turning radius than my previous f250 crew long bed, both truck s are the same length. I have zero regrets buying this truck as it is configured, just wish I did it last year when I bought my 5th wheel.

RE: Gear ratio advice 3:73 or 4:30 on Super Duty

travlingman...its amazing how much better this truck turns with the wide front axle, that option you wont regret!
