RE: Battery Replacement?

OP, as you see by the responses... You’ve asked a crystal ball question that is frankly pretty silly. ... Given you have a high $ truck that is a garage queen, I’ll presume you’re an older person. ... In other words, Grit Dog thinks you're old, he has an issue with you owning an expensive truck that's a garage queen, and he thinks your question was stupid to ask. His words were "frankly pretty silly." Typical of Grit dog. It appears that he doesn't like older people, especially when they ask questions that he doesn't like. And it's obvious from this and many other posts that he doesn't like people who can afford expensive trucks. Furthermore, it really rubs him the wrong way if you can garage the truck. I've only had batteries go bad at the worst time, primarily because there's never a good time. They aren't expensive and not difficult to replace, if you want to do it yourself. Also, if you have AAA, their prices to replace batteries are very reasonable. So if you have AAA, it's not much of a gamble unless you end up in a situation that's time sensitive. Also, if you have a shop that you take it to for regular maintenance, the next time it's there, ask them to check the battery.

RE: Why do I keep blowing out tires on my truck?

Devo if you really want to get rid of that pOs RAM now is the time to do so. Friends just bought a 19 Laramie with 12k long bed with a Companion hitch in the bed and it's a certified RAM and gets the 5/100 changed to 7/100 drivetrain. They paid 70k for it and that was a decent deal. Thank you for memorializing your poor reading and comprehension skills. LOL. I won't call you stupid though. I wouldn't want to insult stupid people.

RE: Why do I keep blowing out tires on my truck?

PS, you did actually turn this into a Dodge/Ram bashing thing over some dude who had a few flat tires on a Dodge! ROFLMAO No. You did. I provided my opinion on a possible cause and nothing else. My post was only one word. I specifically left out any reference to a manufacture. Didn't mention the truck nor the tires. You and 12V commented that my post was useless, even though I wasn't the only one who suggested it. And, you both were the first to bring up why I didn't make it a manufacture issue. Why? Doesn't matter. I didn't. That's just how your brain works. LOL

RE: Why do I keep blowing out tires on my truck?

"Not sure where you are coming from on this" He has nothing better to do and we are the chosen ones to receive his gifts in writing. If we drove old V10 Fords though, he’d be our besty! LOL. Yes. I own a Ford V10, other cars and still a Ram. The deals to buy a Ford don't exist yet. So, the Ram is parked and I'm negotiating selling prices. I've got time and am in no rush. The only problem the two of you have is that I'm not a part of the dodge cult. If I kept the Ram, kept quiet and dealt with the FCA and dealership ****, you'd be singing a different tune. But, I'm not braindead and won't accept a bad product that won't be fixed by the manufacture. For some reason, that's a foreign thought process to the two of you. Braindead people don't surprise me at all. Bye-don idiots just exist.

Nothing from the OP in a couple days, wonder how he's faring. I'd be curious to hear if he found anything. Grit dog and 12V have spoken and the question has been answered. LOL.

RE: Why do I keep blowing out tires on my truck?

Possible that the RR brake Is “hanging” and causing excessive heat in the tire. If so the pads would be gone and backing plates would be gouging the rotors. Leave it up to 12V to only think of extremes: The calipers are either floating on the rotors or gouging the rotors, and nothing else. LOL. Typical knuckledragger. If the caliper is not releasing the pad completely and it's always riding the rotor, it'll generate heat and wear a little more than the rest. That's possible and it hasn't been ruled out, except by 12V and Gritdog. I think JRscooby is on to something: Right turns and rubbing curbs is also a possibility. BTW, how much over inflated will a tire need to be to do damage? In this case, it's unknown. It's still unknown if the tire pressure gage is accurate, so it's difficult to answer. There are too many variables. The only consistant items are three blowouts on the same tire at approximately the same mileage, and gritdog and 12V thinking they know everything.

RE: Why do I keep blowing out tires on my truck?

https://bouldertire.com/blog/view/how-bad-is-it-to-overinflate-your-tires https://despairrepair.com/overinflated-tires-what-can-happen-and-how-to-fix-it/ https://itstillruns.com/dangers-overinflating-vehicle-tires-5784335.html Etc. Etc. If the tires are overinflated and the sidewalls are too stiff, the risk goes up. Is that the root cause? Maybe not. I would suspect excessive heat build up on the right rear caused by something else. Too much heat at the rim is added stress to the sidewall. If the tire is already overinflated from a bad gauge (I've had them and have throw them away), the tire's life could be reduced. Sooner or later, any kind of road debris is going to cause it to give out. Of course, all useless information according to Grit Dog and the 12V owner. They know everything.

RE: Why do I keep blowing out tires on my truck?

It’s possible they are overinflated. According to Grit dog and the 12V owner, your post is useless.

RE: Why do I keep blowing out tires on my truck?

Overinflation. All that would do is wear out the center of the tire. He said he religiously inflates to 80 towing. 10-4 12V. Another useless response by Devo. Surprised he didn’t attribute it to being a Chrysler product! You know for a fact that his gauge is accurate? BTW, now that you pointed out that my post is useless and you're surprised that I didn't attribute the problem because it's a Chrysler product, you can never again call yourself unbiased and level headed.

RE: Great Tow Capacity - Bad Payload Capacity... Increase PL?

The payload capacity is kind of a meaningless number on a sticker found on the door jam of your truck .... that can't be changed. If you want to increase the capability of your truck so it can handle a 3200 lb pin weight you'll have to upgrade your rear suspension. Install a set of air bags. This is the real answer from someone who knows and works trucks. The speculation from the rest of the peanut gallery (aka, the RVnet anti-airbag mafia (you know who you are, lol)) is just that...speculation. True story from a different dodge cult member forum: Guy buys new 2019 Fiat 2500 with factory air suspension and brags about what he can tow, shows pictures, etc. The reality is that he has been overloaded for years. Everyone tells him that he's overloaded. A few months into the 2019 ownership, factory airbags blow out while driving on the highway, and the full load falls on the rear suspension bump stops. He demands that Fiat replace the air bags under warranty. Then, he sells the repaired 2500 and buys a Fiat 3500. All the dodge cult members are happy because the idiot gets a new Fiat 3500. Moral of the story. A cult member is a cult member and air bags might not be the correct solution.

RE: Great Tow Capacity - Bad Payload Capacity... Increase PL?

1600lb payload vs 2700lb payload CTD vs V10... . Guy was referring to the weight difference... Correct Guy (valhalla360) was referring to the payload difference.. Then out of the blue, guy (spoon059 ) points out that the engine type and manufacture needs to be considered. If someone else can make the engine and manufacture an issue, then so will I. Deal with it. Ram still sucks.

RE: Great Tow Capacity - Bad Payload Capacity... Increase PL?

1600lb payload vs 2700lb payload CTD vs V10... . Only CTD owners believe that the engine is the only item that matters in a truck. And that's why the trucks are substandard. The manufacture knows the type of customers that repeatedly buy their future spot welds because the only thing that matters is the CTD. LOL.

RE: 6.8 3-valve towing FW

I have a 2005 F350 V10 with 4:30 gears. Works great. It works so well that when I ordered a 2019 fiat 3500 HO, my wife asked me to sell our Jaguar XJR and keep the F350. I'm glad I kept it because I have a truck to drive when the 3500 is at the dumbass dealers for repairs, recalls, or both. We recently bought a new Jaguar SUV for my wife to drive. But, she still drives the F350 almost everyday. I'm trading in the Peugeot 3500 and am ordering a 2022 F350 with the 7.3. But, we're going to keep the 2005 Ford. It'll be the truck that gets muddy and dirty going to the dump. To be honest, if you're patient and don't mind going up hills slower, the 6.8 is fine. Even though you can spin the engine at a higher RPM, I never have. Getting up the hill a minutes sooner doesn't make sense when you're driving a few hundred miles. Realistically, the 7.3 will be a bit better but still not the same as 1000+ ft-lbs of torque. It all comes down to money. A new truck is a lot nicer than a 15 year old truck in great shape. I wouldn't get anything older than a 2005 because you'll get the 3V and a better transmission. http://www.spikeengineering.com/F350/ECOVILN.jpg width=900 http://www.spikeengineering.com/F350/IMG_5209.jpg width=900

RE: I refuse to double tow.

Behind a 3/4t shortbed. Keeps the pin weight light so he doesnt need air bags . Trailer suspension wont take that very long. Thats an extra ton or more on the trailer axles. It appears to be a Ram truck ,so no problem there . :B Leave it up to Ram owners to be blind and stupid.

Are you asking about calipers/pads/rotors/brake fluid, or just pads and rotors?

RE: Do I have have enough Truck?

I'd have to agree with every word here, I have a lot of time invested in some very nitpicky things on a lot of my cars that the average guy would never entertain. I also didn't realized OP had dipped out. Cummins swaps on these trucks are not for the faint of heart. Same goes for a Duramax swap. I figure I can buy a lot of gasoline for the cost of the swap. I’ve been intrigued by your truck for a while. Don’t have any real experience supercharging engines. But you must…to have a reliable heavy hauler at those weights in Colorado! This is a perfect example of why I repeatedly stated that if I was to boost the new 7.3 godzilla, I'd put on a supercharger instead of a turbo. They work. Are they as efficient as turbos? No. But I don't care about parasitic loss if the HP and torque still goes up, with a less complicated system and at a lower cost.

RE: fuel additives

To Devo the dog. Your post show exactly what I said about fuel gelling in extreme temps. Maybe you should work on your reading comprehension. You should work on your writing and composition. You clearly stated the following (a copy/paste): "There are no owners manuals that make any mention of using additives of any kind." Where do you say that some owner's manuals might allow an additive of some kind? You didn't, even if you whispered it. LOL
