RE: General Grabber ATX?

This what I’m running on my truck currently since last summer and they are wearing very well, nothing bad to report.

RE: Support trailer build and story...ideas and the why

Really cool build, I could see something like this in my future once the kids are grown up, I’d use it as more of a shop with space for bikes, a side by side and a couple of smokers and grilles but much the same concept.

RE: TIres, looking for long wearing, all weather load range E

I swapped out my factory Michelin’s last summer as the we’re getting down to around 5/32 and really didn’t provide wet weather performance anymore. I went with General Grabber ATX in the factory size and have been extremely happy to date. They are very good in the snow and rain, as for wear it’s harder to tell as I’ve only got around 15000km’s on them currently but they have only worn down to 14/32 to date - should be a 60000-70000km tire. Well i hope your Generals last longer than the OE's on my 11 DRW did. At 25k they only had 1/3 tread left and had a big tread separation on a front tire. It’s the newest revamp of their Grabber line, I agree that the **** that got put on as OEM over the last several years wasn’t much good but everything I’ve read and now experienced with the latest batch of new General products has been positive. Normally I run Michelin’s but decided on a change because of all the positive reviews and tests, plus these tires were nearly 600$ less for the set than another pair of the Michelin AT2’s so I figured why not. I run Defender MS on my wife’s Explorer during the summer and also Pilot Super Sports on the Shelby so I’m quite familiar with the quality and performance.

RE: Hooked it up

Great looking combo, looking forward to hearing how you like the 10 speed.

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. https://i.imgur.com/nSW01wtl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/VSsmtwKl.jpg

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 https://i.imgur.com/rHRFEj4l.jpg 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.
