RE: 2020 vs '17-'19 Ford 6.7

Only rich people can answer your question. No need to be ignorant, not everyone has the same budget. On topic: I haven't had the chance to drive a 2020 myself yet but I'm looking forward to trying one to see how the chances feel compared to my 2017. Everything I'm reading is positive on the updates.

RE: Pickup truck roof racks?

I've used a Thule Rack to haul bicycles on my last truck and also my current truck.

RE: 2020 Ford 7.3L Ike Gauntlet

I’d like to see the same test with the same trailer but a 6.7 truck instead, I think other than the downhill performance we now have a near diesel performance gas option.

RE: Ford 7.3 vs GM 6.6 fuel economy TFL video

test both trucks with the same weight trailer on the same day and road for a level playing field and then we'll have results that we can all talk about. Either way i'd be surprised if the ford matched to beat the GM 6.6's fuel economy, GM has always impressed on that front in my opinion while the fords tend to have more low end and don't seem to work as hard.

RE: Falken Wildpeak AT3W

I've read nothing but praise about these new Wildpeaks - that said i did throw on a new set of General Grabber A/TX's on my truck last summer and was quite impressed with them overall, little wear in around 15K , good chunk of that towing and they were extremely well priced, about 60$ less a piece than the Falkens.

RE: Planning a trip Jun 2020 to Nova Scotia/PEI

I live in south east New Brunswick and spend a fair bit of time Camping I. The area. If going to PEI, charlottetown is a great food city, many great restaurants and good biking trails are available, otherwise it’s pretty much beaches and farmland. To get there you’ll be driving through my province, please take time to camp and visit Fundy national park, it’s one of my favourite spots and it offers amazing views, great hiking trails and good campgrounds. Others have given you plenty of good info on NS so I don’t have much to add to that.

RE: Electric Mustang

I wonder how many EV naysayers on here are going to suddenly think EV's are the best thing since sliced bread because it has "Ford" in it's name? I can assure you that it won't be me. Most of the vehicles that I have owned have been Ford and I have been a fan of the Mustang ever since it came out. I have a 66 Fastback Mustang and a 69 Cougar convertible in my garage. If they go to all electric vehicles I'd rather see the Mustang name die rather than be electric. If it has an electric motor in it it's not a Mustang to me and I bet a lot of other diehard Mustang fans will feel the same way. Not disrespecting your opinion and you are certainly not the only one, but out of curiosity what is it about electrification that turns you off. An E mustang has better performance, handling, reliability, lower maintenance, better ergonomics, better safety etc than an ICE equivalent. Again, no disrespect here. Just curious on people’s perceptions. Cheers. The closest way I can get to explaining it was at one time Ford wanted to make the Mustang a front wheel drive and the fans showed their displeasure with it so Ford kept the Mustang a rear wheel drive. To people like me it just wouldn't be a Mustang if the general concept of the car was changed. It really goes much deeper than that but I just don't know how to put it into words. There are just so many other names that they could give it without using the name of a legend. I’m as big of a Mustang Fan as there is and I really like the Mach E in GT form, it might even be my next daily driver if it looks and drives as good in person as I think it will.

RE: Different kind of Jack-knife

That plain sucks, I’ve seen that damage many times before though, so clearly you aren’t the only one that’s had this happen to over the years.

RE: Tires, again!

If you’re looking for a cost effective alternative, the Bridgestone Duravis R500 HD are about the toughest non steel carcass tire out there, mine have two summers and around 24000km’s on them without issue, they replaced cracking 4 year old BFG commercial T/As.

RE: Storing generators when traveling?

Here’s how you do it in a Northern Lite That’s the setup right there! You could even bring just one and store a fuel jug there.

RE: FYI. Ford F150 V8

Check the weight numbers... While close on his payload numbers i’m Sure he’s fine depending on what rear axle that truck has.

RE: The ticking time bomb under the hood

My only question is will the PM22A Motorcraft additive help extend the pump life on our 2018 F350 6.7? It mentions "lubricity" on the bottle, but I get the feeling it is more about the cetane number than lubricity. I run that **** thru every tank of our 2006 F350 6.0 for 12 years and never had a fuel system issue. I’ve run the PM22A true most every tank of my previous 2013 6.7 and now my 2017 6.7 without issue, last truck had 118k on it when I traded it, perfect running condition. I do run other brands once in a while when I run out of the Motorcraft stuff or it’s just not handy to pick up - I figure something is better than nothing.

RE: 2017+ Powerstroke 6.7 Fuel Filter

I’ve done 4 filter changes to date on mine and there’s not really anything to it. Unless you destroy everything you touch it’s a pretty easy design to swap out. Not sure what you all are complaining about.

RE: Kz Durango 2500

Not a 2500 but we have a 1500 that we’ve used heavily for the last 3 summers and it’s been a very good rig to date. I would consider another KZ for sure.

RE: Camaro being discontinued again ?

I’m a mustang guy, I’ve driven the new Camero’s several times and they’re great to drive other than not being to see out of them. Depending on the trim level they can be real track monsters but in the end most people can’t live with the stuff that makes the, good on the track and terrible on the street. I’ll take my GT350 over the ZL1 any day. The Challenger is awesome, and they keep making it better, it’s certainly second on my list.

RE: From Ram to a Ford

Those massaging seats are fantastic on longer drives, I use mine quite a bit.

RE: The Redwood has landed.

Congrats on the new unit, it must take some of the sting out from loosing the last one.

RE: Maybe a new Ford?

Only thing I don't like about the newest gen F250s is how the rear end tends to sag pretty easily with a load. I think Ford softened the springs for a better ride to compete with the coils sprung ride that Ram offers in their 2500 and by doing that, they made it pretty prone to squat. they don't squat very much, mine is a different story as i removed the 4" blocks in installed 2" blocks to lower the back of my truck by 2" to level out my 5er - it squats about 2" when i load up my fifth wheel and have my two Honda generators, some fuel cans, a BBQ smoker and a few other odds and ends.

RE: Maybe a new Ford?

i can say that i love the interior on my Platinum F350, the seats are extremely comfortable for me and i can spend hours in there without issue. I'm 6'2" - 215lbs so I'm not a super small guy either. My father has the same year and model as mine however its the King Ranch trim and i find his interior to be just as comfortable as mine although he does not have the massaging seats that mine has, i love those. go with the F350, it has much more payload capacity and honestly rides better than my previous F250 (2013) did - it's what you need for that 5er in my opinion. My Platinum F350 SRW has a listed payload rating of over 3400lbs. Both my father and i tow many miles per season and we really are happy with the trucks and how they perform down the road. I tow around 10000# and my father with his heavier and long cougar tows around 13500# - I've ridden in and towed both and honestly cannot tell much difference with the additional 3500lbs behind the truck. Both 5er use Reese 5th airborn air pinboxes and the trucks are 100% stock otherwise. While i'm sure a DRW will most likely be more stable, i cannot say that i'm not extremely satisfied with our current setup.
