RE: 2 cycle oil Dodge 5.9 diesel

2 cycle oil is designed to burn as cleanly as possible. It shouldn’t hurt a diesel in moderation. I’m not sure how it likes being compressed to 35000 psi’s in a common rail fuel system. The manual for my old mechanical diesel Land Cruiser says emergency fuel can be made from 3 parts gasoline to 1 part 30 weight engine oil if necessary. It was built before the internet so that could be danger danger now. Modern as in 07.5 and newer is no bueno!!! Won’t hurt the engine but sure will the downstream emissions systems. Agreed; I wouldn't hesitate on a 5.9L or deleted 6.7L but definitely not on an emissions intact 6.7L like my truck still is.

RE: 2021 Ford Bronco

Fish, Was that not the "twin traction" something or other front end? Iirc it was ok. I was seriously thing about a 96 crew cab from Ford, the 250 was a horrible turning truck with it, vs the 350 with the sofa excellent tight radius, GM ifs was in the middle. 5' or so difference between them. Went with a GM, not smartest choice, but still wish I had it, even with the 6.5TD. Marty I don't recall the names of those Ford suspension but "twin traction" sounds familiar, but the F350 had a solid axle. Back then I had a '87 and '92 Chevy trucks. Come on guys, you that young :B It was twin I beam . Fish , here I thought you were the blue oval guy . Twin I beam was for 2wd models; Twin Traction Beam was for 4wd models. ;)

RE: Tires again

Pretty tough to beat a Sailun S637; I have had mine on my 16k fiver for 6 1/2 years so far with zero issues and they still look great. They also only lose about 3 psi each evenly over winter storage. Yes, they are Chinese tires but they have a great track record and I would buy them again without hesitation.

RE: Nowhere to go

It’s the same around here, if you don’t book months ahead, you aren’t getting in anywhere, plain and simple. We have been thinking of buying an RV lot but they have skyrocketed in price as well with the pandemic. It is about the biggest reason why I’ve seriously contemplated selling the fiver recently.

RE: 2022 HD trucks delivery date

I’ve been offered more than I paid for my truck several times now, but she’s paid for and I’m keeping her. That said, if I could have convinced my better half to sell the fiver for more than we paid for it, which we could have easily done, there’s a good chance that the Ram would have been gone too.:)

RE: Why no ignitor on RV stove?

^Hell, I didn’t even drink until this issue came into my life…. See, should have done something before it got out of hand :B Who said there was a problem? :B

RE: Why no ignitor on RV stove?

Grit, my trailer stove has an ignitor that works with or without shore power. Would you like to buy the trailer? :B You’d have to throw in your awesome stick shift Mega Cab though, cause I don’t have on of them anymore, because the brodozer we got now would have to do the Carolina squat just to hook a 5ver! LOL, I've been trying to convince my better half to sell everything the way the market currently is, but I haven't had much success yet....:)

RE: Does the Color of an HD Pickup Make a Difference?

Well, with the experience I had when I was shopping for my current truck, I would say that yes color does matter. I was determined that I was going to buy a white truck until I happened to see the truck that I bought. The Maximum Steel color looked absolutely stunning on the Ram dually when I saw it, and well the rest is history! :C

RE: Ram 3500 issue

Have you replaced the rear differential fluid? Mine was starting to act as you describe and the problem disappeared when I replaced the factory fluid with Amsoil Severe Gear. The factory fluid is junk; I would have replaced it when the truck was brand new if I had known that at the time.

RE: 2000 Triple E Commander Drivers Door power window

I would bet the window regulator assembly is shot. You will need to take the panel off to see what is going on, but broken or frayed cables on them are common. Hopefully there will be a part number on it so that you can get a new one if that is what the problem is. They are readily available at Napa, and they aren't difficult to change (I have done 2 of them on my GMC Yukon this year). I believe Triple E is still operating at a reduced capacity so you may be able to contact them to enquire as to what regulator they used back then.

RE: Tranny fluid change

My wife’s 2005 Acura MDX called for a transmission service that entailed draining the transmission, filling, driving, and then repeating 2 additional times for a transfer of 9 litres. I simply drained the transmission every second oil change and refilled (3 litres each time) and the fluid was like new right up until we sold it this past spring. So for the Ram I would do the simple drain and refill as per the book (or more often if it makes you feel better) and call it good. And it’s very easy to get a full drain and refill on my G56 manual truck! :B

RE: Looking for ideas on how to Roll up/store 50 amp cord

If there is a complex expensive way to deal with something simple someone is sure to suggest it. Cooling the 50amp beast got old real fast so a nautical method of storing awkward line is used. It is flaked into an oval laundry basket. Enough of the female end is left out to reach the inlet. Only as much as needed is pulled out to the utility post. Cheap and effective. I hear you, but you would be amazed how much better the SOOW cord is! :)

RE: Highway speeds - Keep your distance!

Great post, Bob, and I totally agree with you. It always amazes us how many semi trucks tailgate as well; extremely dangerous! :M

RE: Opinions on 5th Wheels with Island Kitchens

We have an island kitchen in our fiver and love it. We cannot get to the fridge with the slides in, but 10 seconds pushing a button easily fixes that. We also frequently put our lunch in our Yeti cooler which eliminates the need to access the fridge in the trailer while travelling. This is not a big deal for us. We can access the washroom with all of the slides in which is much more important! ;)

RE: Saving the Clutch

I love my 2 Low kit; I use it every time I back my trailer into tight spots. It is tight getting into my back yard and using the 2 Low feature makes it MUCH easier on the clutch. In the case of an automatic, it will definitely be much less strain on the transmission. Overall I would say it is one of the best modifications I have done to my truck.

RE: Looking for ideas on how to Roll up/store 50 amp cord

I do the same as Cummins12V98 and rhagfo.. BUT, I also switched to the cord rhagfo mentioned ( 50 amp (6/4)power cable is made of SOOW electrical cord) .... MUCH EASIER to coil and store... Add me to the list of those who have made this switch; the difference is night and day! My old cord is in my shed to go with the fiver if/when I sell it.
