RE: Wow, 6 months wait for a Chevy-Tahoe

We got out of our lease 9 months early partly because this would be the situation and we be screwed. Bought a new vehicle outright with everything we wanted in January. Happy we did.

RE: Dually rental

You could try Hertz they rent F350s. And do you really think they come equipped with a fifth wheel hitch? I would imagine SOMEONE rents them with fifth wheel hitches. "Hotshotters" and "RV Transporters" break down too. Someone, somewhere, somehow will have the set up you exactly need. Take that to the bank

RE: Ram "limp Mode"... Again!

I'm going to think about your post here the next time I'm in stop and go traffic and my knee starts to hurt from using the clutch. ;) I do wish you the best of luck!Stop and go traffic occurs much more frequently then fluke transmissions. Yes it will slow you down, but won't leave you stranded! My G56 did

RE: Why do you Cummins guys want more gears

Not needed. More speed towing is dangerous for many reasons, and you achieve a good speed now. Lugging any engine while pulling a weight not good either. Continual searching for correct gears can't be good. The best overall range for towing with that Cummins is around 1800 RPM so in my opinion not needed. Most of what you said is an argument FOR more gears. Lugging is certainly not good for the engine. You need more gears to keep the engine in the ideal RPM range over varying conditions.Not really. Why would you want gears that need to have you going 75 mph to keep it going down the road at a non lugging rpm?

RE: Which E rated ties have the most weight capacity?

It's because all tires not made equal. Some have a bit more steel in them or the compounds they use

RE: Max Weight used to Balance Tires

I dunno, I've never checked them. I guess I just figure the guys doing their job know what they're doing. I supposed if it got to half-pound, I might be concerned, but then again, I'm not in there when they're balancing. I am about to buy new shoes for my DW, and I looked at one of my old ones still on there and saw the amount of weight they put when I last rotated the tires and I was shocked. So, it made me wonder about new tires. Old ones may have worn poorly to explain it, but if I saw that on new tires I would wonder why its not round

RE: Cargo Rating

Never heard of Cargo Rating before. I can do the math for myself a lot more accurately than 150 lbs per seat. My truck has 5 seats, 95% of the time only 2 are in use. The sticker on the door of my truck clearly says "The combined weight of occupants and cargo should never exceed _______". Seems pretty clear to me. X2

Max Weight used to Balance Tires

If you are buying new LT tires, no matter the brand, what would be the Max amount of weight to balance would you accept before you would say give me a different tire?

RE: Anyone Use BG Products Engine Restoration Before

Russ did you run Delo 400 in your 01? Always run Delo, sometime Rotella. Have not run the synthetic. I do use Donaldson filter. I only have 88K miles on it and as I said before, just thought you could use this product as preventative but it got cleared up not to that. maybe I should go with the Amsoil next change for oil.

RE: Anyone Use BG Products Engine Restoration Before

Great responses guys. Like I said, just wanting to know thoughts about its use. They promote this things that you gain so much from doing it. I will stay clear of this product.

RE: Anyone Use BG Products Engine Restoration Before

What's wrong with your engine? Nothing? Then don't add anything. They do remove deposits etc. But unless you skipped the last 5 oil changes on your truck, not sure why you'd be considering it. If this is for an old jalopy that you're trying to unstick some rings or get the valves to close all the way again, then yes, it could help. Nothing seems wrong on my engine, but why wouldn't you clean it out if it doesn't harm anything? Kind of like a colon cleanse :). This is why I am checking with folks.

Anyone Use BG Products Engine Restoration Before

Has anyone here used Engine Performance Restoration by BG Products before on your diesel engine? The claims are good but I am wondering if there really is that much benefit. It's an oil treatment which you run until warmed up and sludge is removed along with the carbon deposits.

RE: Help With These Tire Brands General, Continental, Nokian

6 new Michelin LTXs in Yuma for $600 on Craigslist. Probably get em for $500 and a nice spring drive on a Saturday! Seriously, if I was just going to re-shoe a truck with run of the mill, OE size pavement pounders, I’d take the 2 for 1 discount from the multitudes of people selling takeoffs. Just an option. Message me the link please! Bit of a challenge on my phone from the CL app, sorry. I searched 235 80 17 in tires and wheels for sale by owner. I usually look for used or takeoff tires before buying new. But I’m cheap like that. Lol I looked after your first post but not there so maybe sold already. I really only want new.

Help With These Tire Brands General, Continental, Nokian

I have decided between 3 tire brands for my 2013 Ram DW 4x4. I tow a lot on the highway but occasionally find myself on forestry roads. The brands are General Tire Grabber HTS 60; Continental Terrain Contact HT; or a newcomer Nokian One HT. If any of you have any experience or thoughts about these 3 brands please share.

RE: Off Roading with the 2021 Bronco

I can't wait to test out one of these new Broncos. And as always for your viewing entertainment. Link If you are near Hurricane UT, keep Matt's Recovery phone number handy

RE: Tow Vehicle Liability Insurance

If it was me, I would find out if these companies use OEM parts. I understand they don't and that is why they keep prices low. This is most important to me I'm thinking you mean OE, not OEM. OEM can absolutely be a crapshoot. OE, not so much. OEM = Original Equipment Manufacturer OE = Original Equipment You get the point
