RE: Ford Increases GVWR for 2020 Trucks

So just watched this video.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XwD-AXX6X-0 It looks like Ford did the same as GM did with Increasing the GVWR on their trucks to increase payload... Shown in this video is a F250 Tremor Lariat Ultimate with a GVWR of 10800lbs and 2988lbs of payload in a 3/4 ton diesel...that is an 800 lb increase in GVWR and payload... Adding a link... Link

RE: Ford Increases GVWR for 2020 Trucks

So now both GM and Ford have a 250/2500 truck in both class 2b and class 3. I will bet that there is no difference between the 250/2500 class 2b trucks with 10k GVWR and the 250/2500 trucks that are over 10k GVWR in the rear other than their sticker. When I went and looked at the new 2020 Super Duty's I noticed a lot of the F250's were equipped with the HD trailer tow package which means they have a F350 spring pack and a F350 rear end.

RE: just saw my 1st 2020 F-350's

I went and looked at the 2020 Super Duty's a couple of weeks ago. I've been talking to myself to resist the urge to go back to look at a two tone King Ranch I saw when driving by.

RE: 2020 Silverado 2500

Just purchased a 2020 Silverado 2500 with PUCK system for hitch placement. Told dealer that I would be using it as a tow vehicle and was assured that this vehicle would be all I needed. Turns out that Chevrolet moved the puck system back behind the rear axle for the 2020 year model. If anyone out there has one of these trucks with PUCK system, what hitch are you using? I've contact several hitch manufacturers and they say they are aware of the issue, and are designing new hitches. Can't find anyone yet at Chevrolet to tell me why they moved the location. The way it is now, the weight of the king pin will be just aft of the rear axle, a condition which I would think would raise the front end some. If I had to do it over again, I would of bought a truck with out the PUCK system. Actually GM moved the location of mounting the axle to the leafs with an offset but the hitch is still mounted in the center of the leaf springs. I think this change was done to reduce squat with a load and improve ride quality without a load. So they lengthened the cab and then shorten the wheelbase to keep it close to the same as earlier models? I'm not sure about that part but I recall the new trucks are a bit longer overall.

RE: "Death Wobble"

I had a 05 Super Duty and drove it to around 180k miles and with a couple sets of BF Goodrich AT tires and a couple sets of KO tires I never had a death wobble incident. My current 12 Super Duty experienced the death wobble twice in close proximity of each other that occurred at the end of life on BF Goodrich AT second generation tires at around ~80k miles. Once I replaced those tires I never had a death wobble incident and I'm currently at ~180k miles. Still have the original steering dampener and all suspension components and alignment are still original except the shocks.

RE: Truck warranty

Interesting story my cousin told me and that if someone comes in with a damaged rear view mirror on a Super Duty under warranty Ford will not approve the warranty repair no exceptions unless he submits pictures of the mirror itself. He has to wait for it to be approved and sometimes they request more pictures before giving him the green light. He can pretty much get by without pictures for any other warranty repair due to his experience.

RE: The TFL guys bought a 7.3L

5 Star reported at FTE today that they could have run the 7.3 truck in 7th gear and made for power but the truck would have hit the speed limiter have way through the WOT run. They also reported some good towing performance towing 9,500-10,000. They were impressed with the low torque performance and the 10 speed transmission.

RE: Truck warranty

I seen a copy of a statement over at FTE that in your manual it states that condensation in the headlight is normal.

RE: The TFL guys bought a 7.3L

ib516, the early Hemis were solid and reliable. The issues arose when they went to the variable cam system around 2009 which is the Hemis in question. I think the issues are more about the cylinder deactivation process more than the cam phaser. Yes and GM has had similar issues. From what I have read they are sensitive to oil change intervals and quality. If you stay on top of your oil changes they don't seem to have the issues. Agreed... That advice was already given to a thin skinned member here.

RE: 2020 Powerstroke stock dyno numbers

The 2020 7.3L gas Superduty made 358 hp / 407 tq. The 2020 6.2L gas Superduty made 335 hp / 369 tq. The 2020 6.7L diesel made 469 hp / 972 tq. The 2019 6.7L diesel made 409 hp / 901 tq. Interesting that the 7.3 HP increase is not as significant over the 6.2 compared to the 2019 vs 2020 6.7PSD increase. I suppose the 7.3 was at some disadvantage from the larger tires and 5 Star mentions some signs of Tq management occurring. Also noteworthy is the 6.2 HP numbers measured at All Star is less than Pickup Trucks.com numbers and are very in line with the factory numbers.
