RE: New suburban and tahoe reveal! Duramax 3.0 is in!!

Who can afford these anymore? They seem to sell more and more every year.

RE: New suburban and tahoe reveal! Duramax 3.0 is in!!

Huge win for them with adding the diesel. Huge fail on the exterior styling. Again.

RE: Tailgate Step Suggestions?

I’m a believer in the AMP step. I have one on the back and one on the side. Well made easy install and highly functional. They are better than the tailgate step that Ford has and absolutely no comparison to what GM puts in its bumper. Honestly it is one of the best mods I did to my truck. And compared to the price of the truck, their cost is immaterial.

RE: Do you have a bed liner?

There is only minimal fading on the OEM Berliner in my 2012. And it works great for non-slip. My truck does leave a pretty easy life though, being stored indoors and half the year being under a topper. From what I have seen, black spray in resists fading significantly better than colored liners. And I wouldn't let a little bit of fading stop me from protecting the bed.

RE: Tesla Cybertruck

I see the biggest winner on this being Chevy. Their HD is no longer the ugliest truck on the market.

RE: New Chevrolet Trailblazer

Small SUVs (or more likely CUVs) have replaced small cars. They have to do something to meet CAFE requirements. And these vehicles sell. Trailblazer

RE: 2020 Ram 2500/3500: MotorTrend Truck of the Year

Nice award for the RAM marketers. They didn’t make substantial enough changes to get me back in the market. Best innovations in my mind go to GM with that 10 speed transmission and that camera that “sees” behind the trailer. That’s pretty cool.

RE: Current crop of SUV'S

A Focus is going to fold up like a beer can if it gets hit by anything significant. IMHO, safer for everybody, not just you, if everybody drove smallest car the would do the job. Trying to be nice, so I will just say I don't share your opinion. Sorry, but sometimes the facts are not nice to hear. The fact is small cars are not more dangerous, large cars are not more dangerous, it is accidents that are dangerous. And after decades of Ralph's influence all are safer. Now in a impact between a Suburban and a small car, sure the people in the small car are more likely to get hurt, just like impact between Suburban and a Western Star, people in Suburban are in most danger. But the higher percentage of smaller vehicles in a given number of vehicles the more room everybody has to miss the impact all together. To say "I drive a big car because it is more safe in a wreck" is same as "I'm more important than anybody else" or "Me, me, it's all about me!" You know what my primary concern is in a crash? Me and my family. I have no problem saying that.

RE: Filling Propane While Traveling

Most of the rental places (as in equipment rental) have the ability to fill. Ace Hardware as well.

RE: Sticker shock

I just had some work done on my fishing boat. $130/hour. Your Ford dealer doesn’t seem out of line.

RE: 2012 6.7 Diesel

Not positive but I believe that Canadian fuel has a higher lubricity standard than US fuel, which might explain a lower HPFP failure rate up North. However, something North of 99.94% of the 6.7s in the US also have no fuel pump problems with many of those with a failure being traced back to contaminated fuel. Where does the 99.94% come from? Proof source?

RE: 2012 6.7 Diesel

I know two people who have had the radiator problem. One traded his truck in (on another F250 6.7). One fixed it and is still running it (he still likes it better than the Dodge he had before). To me it's not just the engine you need to be concerned about. Everything else in the truck wears out too. I guess it all depends on budget, but I am done buying or owning vehicles with more than around 120,000 miles.

RE: Reliable truck+lightweight TT RVing Setup

Look into one of the 150/1500 with a 3.0 diesel. That will give you the best MPG solo or towing, and be a way better platform than any Honda.

RE: EcoDiesel vs Hemi up IKE

I'm watching these (Eco Diesels) to eventually replace my Ram3500. Before that happens, they need to add the exhaust brake and I would like to see a better, clutch type cooling fan. If available, I would go for the 3.92 diff. It looks like they finally have the payload I need though. I’m a bit surprised to read this; you aren’t thinking about going with a new Cummins? The price of these new diesel half tons isn’t a whole lot less than a new 3500 Cummins. I don't think that is true unless you are comparing a Limited 1500 vs a SLT 3500. Huge difference in driving comfort and MPG as well. If I sold my RV, I wouldn't have a 3500.

RE: "We're sorry. An error has Occurred"

I never have issues. Goodsamclub portal, up to date Chrome browser, up to date Win 10 on a Lenovo laptop. Doesn't matter if I'm on my Hughesnet connection or if I use my Verizon hotspot. Guess you’re lucky. I have trouble with my iPhone on safari. On my Mac on safari or chrome. The format of this forum is ancient, causing the forum to die a slow death. There are several threads about this problem effecting many people. Really needs to be updated.

RE: Anyone towed with the new Chevy Gasser??

I found this video tonight. Guy bought a 6.0 and was not happy with it pulling 8000lb tt over a pass in CO, and traded for the 2020 gasser, and pulled the same pass. He’s claiming 9 MPG pulling a 8000 pound trailer over Rabbit Ears Pass?

RE: Exercising generator and A/C after winterizing question?

Jeeze I didnt realize this. I always used to just use the propane heater to heat until last weekend when i read that most people use a space heater when on shore power to save propane. So i used a small1 on high so 1500watts and worked good. Didnt think that ud have outlet problems frim wiring w just one....WOW. We had it goin overnight too...?? Maybe it depends on your trailer, but I’ve run a space heater on high for years on mine without issue.
