RE: Gas Engine - Fill It Up

I will say this and that with todays direct injected gas engines, I would only use Top Tier certified brands which excludes most truck stops gasoline.

RE: 6.6 GM. Gas

Pro's: Direct injection allow for higher compression which improves power and fuel economy Con's: Direct injection tends to produce carbon on the back side of intake valves. Questionable long term effects.

RE: Ford Gas 6.2 vs 7.3

^I remember that the F250s went to the lighter duty 6 speed trans. Now the 350s as well? That’s a turn off for getting the 6.2 even if one doesn’t “need” the 7.3. I’d get the big motor anyway. Still waiting to hear someone say, in ernest, man I wish I had less power! But the way your boy in the WH keeps driving fuel prices up one maybe saying, man I wish my truck burns less fuel.

RE: Bought a second truck.

Nice truck... The one thing I couldn't understand is why Ford predominantly used 2 barrel carburetors in their trucks which made them real slugs. My 69 F100 Ranger 360 2 barrel was a DOG. Changed a couple things wa-la 390 plus 4 barrel was bad azz and got better fuel economy. Had the C6 BUILT and was amazing. Agreed... Running in 2 barrel mode on a 4 barrel carb made better fuel economy than a 2 barrel carb. I remember my parents and their friends pulled their campers from Texas to Ontario Canada back in 1982 and their 1981 Chevy 305ci truck, a friends 1980 GMC 350 both with 4 barrel carbs always made better fuel economy compared to the two Ford F250's with a 400 and 351 2 barrel setup.

RE: Ford Gas 6.2 vs 7.3

Yes the 6.2 has an excellent reputation for reliability. Known problem has been broken valve springs but that's about it. Some of the early 7.3's had front main seals fail and caused oil leaks and torque convertor problems, but I believe these issues have been resolved. For a truck that doesn't tow 99% of the time the 6.2 would be the better choice just for the slightly better fuel economy.

RE: Recall of 19/20 Ram Cummins 6.7 diesels

Here's probably the motivation for the change. Link I will say that cummins implementation of the CP4.2 asymmetrical pump was a disaster and not sure why this was required, but may have something to do with the fuel pulses/load on the pump with the 6 cylinder firing order setup. Anyways it just shows any manufacturer can implement a change that wasn't tested thoroughly and it backfired on them. So Ford doesn’t have any loos of power issues with the CP4.2?? I didn't say that. I'm sure there has been and lawsuits that followed. There is a member here that I while back stated that cummins doesn't make changes by implementing new technology fast and lets the other brands be the guinea pig before switching over and now we know cummins implementation of the CP4.2 has been terrible which discredits his statement. LOL, they still have a much better track record than the blue oval with overall diesel reliability. The 6.0L, 6.4L, and now who knows how many versions of the 6.7L now speak volumes. ;) Ford builds a beautiful truck but their track record on diesels since the 7.3L has been pretty sketchy. I don't miss cleaning up dripped oil on my garage floor and being nervous about taking road trips one bit since making the switch to Ram/Cummins! When your truck reaches 225k miles let's talk. My truck currently has 228k miles and the engine hasn't been touched including water pumps. I believe the 6.7 cummins is now at a Gen 3 including those hydraulic lifters that don't like 15W40 oil. :W

RE: Recall of 19/20 Ram Cummins 6.7 diesels

...Don't know anyone who has the LP5 but I heard they were having injector problems. I have driven multiple LP5s, and my daughter owns one with more than 20k miles. We have not had any injector problems. Amazing how we want to spread information on the other brands. And by the way, if you see my 23 year old daughter filling her 3500 Denali, don't tell her that her dad has a nice truck. Her hard-work nursing and farming allows her to own that truck. I've read on FTE a few people who traded their GM on a Ford truck (hence the reason for being on FTE) due to injector issues. It could be fixed by now but not sure. Here's some more information Link

RE: Recall of 19/20 Ram Cummins 6.7 diesels

It really was surprising that they went with CP4. They clearly saw the issues Ford and GM were having running that pump when they were running the CP3. The CP4.2 pump doesn't like air in the system especially when you change the filters. Not having a lift pump was a big mistake with GM's implementation. I believe they have one now. They also switched to the Denseo pump. Don't know anyone who has the LP5 but I heard they were having injector problems.

RE: Memory seats

Memory seats make some sense to me with a couple of drivers. The easy entry/exit thing makes no sense at all, though. What benefit is that? Especially in something like a truck with plenty of space. The benefit is your seat surface will last longer as your not having to slide on the seat when you enter the vehicle. Also it simply makes entering easier.

RE: Memory seats

I use mine. When I shut off my truck the seat retracts to it's rear position and when starting my truck it moves forward to it's set position. This has been working for 9.5 years and not a single issue with this feature to date.

RE: Calling weight police - help

Hey Ron, is your truck still in the hospital? We all know that's impossible so don't be letting the cat out of the bag. Yes it's still there and since Covid is so bad I can't even visit it. Headgasket?

RE: basic driving skills

Good PSA JR! I do think, since everyone is carrying a phone now, many rely on their phone, rather than any maintenance skills. That being said, I am not one of those folks, and would change my own tire. I buy new vehicles, but still check the spare myself right away, to ensure proper psi, and to understand/examine the supplied tools to change. On my truck, like you mentioned, the lug wrench would require a superman! The lug torque is supposed to be at 160. Jerry What are you driving with that large of a torque rating on a lug nut? Ford SuperDuty in sig. After reading NRALIFR's post, I realized torque on mine is also 165, not 160 ft lbs. Ford builds tough trucks, that wheels do not fall off from! Here is a pic of another manufacturer's truck, that wheel fell off, while just driving down the street. https://i.imgur.com/Fw3B84cl.jpg Jerry I haven't seen that happen in a long time. In addition I don't torque my lug nuts either and never discovered any loose during tire rotation.

RE: Seat Comfort

One feature that makes the Super Duty comfortable for me is the large interior window seal makes for a nice secondary arm rest and the telescopic steering is also another nice touch for comfort.

RE: Seat Comfort

That sounds dangerous. Why do I get the feeling when Ram offers this option, we'll be reading rave reviews on your opinion that it will be the best thing since sliced bread and all the neighbors will be standing in line to ride in your truck. Straight up honest statement! No way would I want that option, ordered new furniture for the RV and could have had it but NO THANKS!!! Only two options I did not order on my RAM were auto dim headlights and auto wipers. Not into "STUFF". LOL... OK bets are on the table!
