RE: Grease Ram front U joint

I made my own adapter to grease my 2001.5 and 2015 RAMs. A needle is the wrong tool. I pressed this against the cup and pumped in a little grease. https://i.imgur.com/7IH6wyzl.jpg

RE: Sumo Springs on 2022 F350 SRW

I have said for a while now that every new Ford needs to be bagged if you intend to carry a load. The truck suspension appears to be designed more for ride quality than load carrying.

RE: Do you pull your taillight housings monthly?

Sounds like either they build a crappy truck or want you to pay for a bogus service. Or someone on a forum is playing you. Things up north rust out real quick with salt use but that is rediculous. Crappy truck yes. It's getting its fourth set of AFM lifters after seizing one at 103,000, a second at 140,750 and a third at 141250. Yes, it only ran 500 miles this last time before seizing a lifter again. This was a forum guy telling me what *I* should have been doing to prevent the rust. Basically blaming me for the truck rusting out already. They also figured out how to make it my fault that the AFM lifters seized. It's a really crappy forum. Last summer I decided I needed a pickup vs SUV when I lost my wife. I looked at all three and ruled out the GM's because of this known issue and the RAM's because of the cam issues.

RE: Ford vs. Ram vs. GM Diesel HP/TQ Ratings

Yep... I may have to book a trip with Capt. Ron But but, he tows his boat to the lunch ramp with his 2001 RAM truck! That could be a life altering event for you. https://i.imgur.com/tSWRXg2l.jpg

RE: Ford vs. Ram vs. GM Diesel HP/TQ Ratings

Chris thanks for posting as my picture posting doesn't seem to be working. Also thanks for the compliment. He lets me drive the boat!!!!! I boated for years, sold the last 33' twin diesel(Cummins 4BT150's) in 2015 and bought the 2015 RAM with the money. We owned this one for 19 years. Never had a major problem with it. About 2800 hours on the engines when we sold it, or about 23,000 nautical miles traveled. Note: 21,600 nautical miles to travel around the Earth at the equator, you would have to travel (360 * 60) 21,600 nautical miles, 24,857 miles or 40,003 kilometers. https://i.imgur.com/mhGVmhml.jpg

RE: Ford vs. Ram vs. GM Diesel HP/TQ Ratings

Caught these speckled trout Saturday morning. Couldn't buy a redfish bite. https://i.imgur.com/Pb5uooGl.jpg You should get Ron to take you fishing. https://i.imgur.com/OxZlcUml.jpg https://i.imgur.com/mWCwUuil.jpg He wants to take me out later this week, he is 45-60 minutes away and wanted to leave really early in the morning. Then he offered shrimping again, but I still have some in the freezer from earlier trips. He is a master at Shrimping, crabbing and salmon fishing.

RE: Ford vs. Ram vs. GM Diesel HP/TQ Ratings

PLEASE tell me what benefit an 8 speed would give me towing West Coast with my AISIN/CUMMINS 385/865 at 35k combined. I can tell you dropping a gear manually does NOTHING as it knows what gear to be in. Don't keep giving me MORE IS BETTER "Barbra Streisand". If you were to hook your unit up behind a new F350 you’d be amazed at the difference a few years, 4 gears and 100 hp make. It's incredible how blindly brand loyal some folks are. I like my Ram, at the time I bought it I thought it was the best diesel truck for my needs. Had I thought that about the Ford or GM, I'd have bought one of them instead. I'll do the same evaluation next time. There's no question that my Ram with a 8 or 10 speed, or even a better quality 6 speed like the previous generation Ford or GM transmission, would be a better truck. 3500's have better quality 6 speeds available in the Aisin optional tranny. Loved mine with 3:42 gears. 1750 RPM's at 80 MPH.

RE: A Big Thank You

"Betcha thought I was gonna say opinions are like A$$Hole$." Or small block Chevys. LOL "Big Blocks" now do not have spark plugs anymore! and The 454 EFI version was rated from 230 hp (172 kW) to 255 hp (190 kW) and from 385 lb·ft (522 N·m) to 405 lb·ft (549 N·m) of torque. and Ford 2.7L ecoboost in pickup trucks have 325 HP and 400 lb ft of torque and do not suffer from altitude sickness. Times have really change.

RE: Super Duty Backup Assist - Fifth Wheel

I find the system a little to sensitive and it spends a lot of time spinning the steering wheel around like a top. I have not dug into it to see if it can be calmed down a little. It was on the lot truck I purchased. If ordering a new truck I do not think I would spend the extra for it. I do really like the 360 cameras, adaptive cruise, 12" center stack screen, "take me to XYZ Nav" and other Ford features. Wish it had power fold mirrors.

RE: Super Duty Backup Assist - Fifth Wheel

In the video they show a device that is bolted to the fifth wheel and plugs into a receptacle in the bed. Yep, my 2021 F150 has a wired yaw sensor that I mounted on the trailer and then when to a large parking lot to calibrate it. I have heard however that they are going back to the old system. I use mine from time to time, however it is an insult to my truck driving years back in the late 1970's.

RE: 2023 Ford Super Duty

Here's some more intel... Link Dash basically is the same as my 14th gen 2021 F150 with the 12" display, two glove boxes, etc.

RE: What Upgrades needed for a 3/4 ton pickup

I would not tow a 14K 5th wheel in Western States without a diesel that has an exhaust brake. Or in the Eastern part of the country that has some steep down hills.

RE: 2023 Ford Super Duty

Kinda still looks like my '17 DRW. Sync 4 and the 12" display are nice.

RE: 2023 Ford Super Duty

Looks the same to me? Except for the camouflage. Is it supposed to be a new body style? I believe the body panels will be all new like the 2020 F150 update, but will look very similar to the current truck. Also the interior should have the same F150 updates as well. I thought the 2021 F150 was the change, not the 2020. 2021 are first of the 14th gen F150's. Aren't you the chief Ford guy?

RE: Point to ponder, hornets nest stir

Now that I think this thru a bit, there's no SWv19.5s mad in mass right now. Rims would be an issue with this option. Everything else should be an easy put together. Assuming a steel wheel option, should not be too hard. Outer rim is same as a dw. Need the center part designed, weld to outer rim... Aluminum, would be another issue. Marty And we all know what a smooth ride the 19.5'a at that rating supply, not!

RE: Point to ponder, hornets nest stir

Are there any SRW with more that a rear axle rating of 7,000 lbs? When I towed a large 16K fifth wheel, I picked one with a 2435 dry pin weight. Which I verified when the manufacturer. Loaded for snowbirding/full timing for two years. My rear axle scaled weight was 6750 with a 7,000 RGAWR. Truck was a 2015 RAM 3500 4x4 Laramie with the heavier Aisin tranny. No generator or W/D in the trailer. I see many SRW trucks towing large trailers that I know have put the trailer over the truck rear axle/tire ratings. My combined weight was 24,500 lbs. https://i.imgur.com/fmaoNIDl.jpg

RE: I am the truck killer!

On the other hand the 2.7l has proven extremely reliable and capable. I’m recommending them to anyone looking for a newer GM full size truck. Thanks Jerem I have a little 2.7L twin turbo 1/2T. When thinking I needed a pickup to replace my 2020 Ford Edge ST (2.7L twin turbo) I researched GM and RAM and turned them both down(GM lifter issues and Hemi cam issues) and up with a 2021 F150 2.7L. Nice truck. Ford 3.5 EB have cam phaser problems. Perhaps not as significant as the other brands but a problem indeed. I believe the 2.7L Ecoboost is noted as more reliable than the 3.5 Ecoboost. The 10 speed tranny is a bit of an over kill, for the torquey little engine.
