RE: 25% better mpg from current diesels? Too good to be true?

With diesel being about 25 percent higher in cost than regular gas where is the net savings? Just saying/asking... :h You’re not really a pot stirrer so why now? Are you concerned for your title??? :B

RE: 25% better mpg from current diesels? Too good to be true?

Diesel's are due for a major break thru in technology that reduces the need or better yet eliminates the band-aid emissions equipment. You mean like the Lady at Cummins that spoke of them working on such a system?

RE: Ram Reduces Max Tow Ratings

Let's get real here, who in the HE!! would hook up a 20k trailer to a 2500 in any brand??????

RE: Ram Reduces Max Tow Ratings

Thank you guys! The rest of this stuff is just banter. We all know what the important things are, like not tow ratings! Lol Wishing your family the best!!!

RE: CAT scale numbers hitched and not

"Looks like the trailer is 740lb overweight. Doesn't mean an instant failure but don't be shocked if it does." Mine should be in a pile of rubble with nearly 7 years of full time use. My RV is rated at 21k and I am only 24k.

RE: CAT scale numbers hitched and not

Shoot, looks good to me. Similar to what I'm pulling with my RAM. Did the door sticker actually show 15,200 lbs. for the GVWR? Opps, nope.. it's 14,000 GVWR for the truck. I'll edit my post THAT number is meaningless except for keeping the truck in Class 3, licensing and insurance purposes. What hitch are you running? I am betting it's NOT full forward as it should be. You should be adding more than 40# with that pin weight.

RE: Feedback on $50 Onan carbs on Amazon?

I am sure you have looked into re building the carb? If you're "sure" about that, why is it a question? Guess my question SA is why you even needed to comment?

RE: MPH vs MPG

GS that's a BEAUTIFUL Truck. I bet you love the color except for it looking dirty well before your white one did.

RE: MPH vs MPG

@Cummins12v98, do you really notice any difference in MPG towing tandem with that little trailer? I tow my 18’, around 3500 pound Ranger boat tandem fairly often, and I don’t notice any difference in MPG vs just one trailer. YES a slight drop like .5 or less mpg.

RE: Diesel to Gas Power Observation

Funny when I reported my findings keeping track of brand of truck towing RV's or anything else that were independently operated I was slammed as it was just what "I was seeing". So FISH I think it's just what "you are SEEING".

RE: Used 6-point levelers to change a flat

I hope you take the tire to a GY "OWNED" store and have them send it to GY to analyze the tire. I am willing to bet road hazard, very common for front tire to kick up object and next tire taking a hit. The GY ENDURANCE simply has no record of failing from non road hazard issue.

RE: Black tank repair

Call your local RV dealers and ask for recommendations.

RE: Fifth Wheel toppers

My advice live without them for a while then decide!!!

RE: Fifth Wheel toppers

^^ Why? Noisy, water pools on them, not home slides out and get some big wind they can tear (been there done that), raining breaking down camp with leaves and needles on topper they get rolled up and will mold unless you extend later at home and more.

RE: Old truck, new look…

REALLY like the truck, not a fan of all that white tho. Maybe if they were black??? My 86 C20 2wd had white wheels and caps. I remember that exact truck heading down the highway when it was new with a 6.2 Diesel, man that was the ruck I wanted!!! I remember riding with a friend in his brand new 84 K30 SRW 4wd crew cab 6.2 going to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo and the engine threw a rod and put us on the side of the road. I remember the truck had ~800 miles on it. 6.2 not great but 6.5 really bad!!!

RE: 2024 GMC and 2023 Super Duty

Yes Fish, he had a trans on the floor. Worked fine!. But had an oil leak in gasket. Took in to fix before warranty went out. Mechanically, worked fine. Both of you are stretching the truth some. IMHO, both of you are also false in comment. Get over it. Marty I hope I am not one of "Both"

RE: 2024 GMC and 2023 Super Duty

^^^ It’s not posted as fact anywhere as far as I know….. it’s just me thinking it’s pretty tough to compete in a 500 HP/10 speed market with 420 ponies and 6 gears. "the 2023 Ram is apt to take a big hit in depreciation when the ‘24 comes out with 8 gears and 480 horsepower / 1200 lbft of torque." You will lose credibility by making these type statements. If you would have said guessing, or if, in that remark, you wouldn't be providing false info. Yes, you did clear that up, after being confronted. Jerry OUCH!!! That even hurt me Jerry!!! :B He is actually the one that said the 6 x 6 is just fine and would not make much difference with more gears. As mentioned WHY in the HE!! change when you have combo's that do the job reliably. I will repeat, I tow way more weight than most anyone here at 35k combined West Coast and have ZERO reason to want more gears or power. I have owned both trans and I love them both. The one you felt inclined to install a after market oil pan or the one on the shop floor? I'm confused... :B The 68RFE https://i.imgur.com/aE8Re2ml.jpg The almighty Aisin that doesn't break https://i.imgur.com/zuGMIpQl.jpg You must have a catalog on everyone or just me??? Both were great as I have mentioned many times. Not sure what the big deal is about adding a deeper pan???? The point of the pic was at 65k with way over 50k on the AMZ/OIL ATF the pan was near spotless towing 30k combined most of the miles. ONLY reason I removed the pan was I traded the 11 on the 15 and sold the pan. You also know the reason the AISIN was replaced it had NOTHING to do with the trans at all. It had minor weeping where the case meets so I had it repaired under warranty. The Tech is the GOD in the Valley when it comes to transmissions. He had only replaced two AISIN's under warranty up to then because of casting issues. He did the separation with the trans in place and the proper way was to remove and stand on TQ converter end. Obscure Technical Bulletin later showed this. NOT the fault of the transmission!!! So I have to ask what was the point of you posting the pics?????????

RE: 2024 GMC and 2023 Super Duty

"And noise level by running lower RPMs." What NOISE LEVELS??? Never heard the newer RAM's called noisy.
