RE: Nissan Titan Gas MPG

I hope there are big discounts on that truck, at $55k it is only $7k cheaper than what I paid for mine last year!

RE: Upgrade

when I bought my 5th wheel we had a 2011 F250 that was bagged, it did ok, BUT it was over weight. Bought the F350 drw and so glad I did, no worries just pack up and tow in comfort! Good luck with the new truck!

RE: Is this vehicle considered a commercial vehicle

In Ma, the law states any vehicle with 5 tires or more touching the road must be registered as commercial. when I bought my drw f350, I had to get commercial plates which require the reg to charge by the ton. also I have commercial insurance due to the plate, vehicle inspection is twice the cost, but I do not have to have a health card as others would if the truck was used for hire.

RE: Best and Worst Feature of your truck

love the power and turning radius. Hate the book that came with it that has those tear out pages!

RE: Need help choosing fulltime toy hauler

My previous F250 was bagged, but ...and please don't take this as me being the weight police, It wont change the door tag numbers if you ever get stopped.

RE: 2017 F450 vs F350

I agree with bedlam....go drive either brand with that wide track front end, it is worth the extra money, my drw turns tighter than my previous F250 As for the back seats, I haven't heard any complaints about my tiny ford seat, not that I would care. I could see if you had adults going back there all the time being concerned.

RE: Need help choosing fulltime toy hauler

My buddy has a fusion travel trailer, has a garage big enough to fit 2 full size touring bikes and still tows it with a 3/4 ton. As has been stated your current truck will be lacking on payload with most 5th wheel toy haulers, I was there myself once.

RE: 2017 F450 vs F350

Just curious does the mega cab come in a 8' bed? that would be a deal breaker for me as im not willing to give up the 8' bed ever again.

RE: 2017 F450 vs F350

Im not finding where you got the 14.5k lb rating on the 2017 rear axle. https://www.fleet.ford.com/truckbbas/topics/2017/2017_F-250_F-350_F-450_SD_Pickups_-_Specs.pdf Honestly this is the first time I have actually compared the 2016 to the 2017 and im not seeing ratings that much different on the axle capacities.

RE: 2017 F450 vs F350

all the 6.7 engines have an exhaust brake. You can get the wide track axle on some of the years prior to 2017, for example my 2016 has the heavy tow package which gives it the wide track axle and 4:30 gears. 2016 350drw and f450 both had 14k gvwr but the 450 does come with 19.5" wheels and a step up in rear axle size. 2017 they stopped this , you can no longer get the 4:30 gears or wide track front axle in the 350drw. Maybe ford realized this model was cutting into 450 sales? There are still a couple 2016 f350 drw with heavy tow sitting on dealer lots.

RE: Need help choosing fulltime toy hauler

If/When I get to the point of full time I will be looking into one of these, but sorry you don't have enough truck for them. http://www.drvsuites.com/full-house-luxury-fifth-wheel-toy-haulers/floor-plans.html Now as for regular off the shelf variety, the wife and I saw a Venom last year that we really liked and I thought it was built well.

RE: New tow rig!

RE: Diesel Regen Smells

im not really concerned about it, my last truck has 110k miles and never an issue relating to this. so in this truck ill just keep on driving and let it do its thing. Thanks for the info though, I will keep it in mind ...yes I believe Lariat up all have the same screen on the gauge pod.

RE: Diesel Regen Smells

the only time I know on my ford is when it flashes what it is doing on the screen, but that only displays for a minute.

RE: Diesel Regen Smells

my 2011 and 2016 have never produced a smell in the cab while in a regen.

RE: 2017 GMC/Chevy DEF tank!

Ive been involved in rock crawling with Jeeps, gave it up, this truck is not intended for that. BTW, if I want to off road now I have a ATV for that. As for the 2017 GMC im sure it is a very nice truck just like the other 2 brands, they all have their down falls you just have to pick which one you want to live with.

RE: 2017 GMC/Chevy DEF tank!

Off roading....I did that once in my truck, trying to turn around on a back road my front tires touched the sand. That's all the off roading this tow queen will ever see as long as I am driving her. My concern with the gm def tank was more so if some road debris kicks up and hits it, yes I know that can happen to any vehicle.

RE: 2017 GMC/Chevy DEF tank!

im not worried about the amount being used just assumed that since the engine is revving a little more it is consuming more def.

RE: 2017 GMC/Chevy DEF tank!

My 2011 f250 used maybe 2.5 gallons every 5k miles, this new truck needs a 30 gallon def tank! I know im going through twice what the old truck did, maybe due to the gearing, engine, tranny and driving are the same.
