RE: I refuse to double tow.

Behind a 3/4t shortbed. Keeps the pin weight light so he doesnt need air bags . Trailer suspension wont take that very long. Thats an extra ton or more on the trailer axles. It appears to be a Ram truck ,so no problem there . :B That is true, at least he can unhook the RZR and get help when his Ram takes a poop.;)

RE: Size Matters???

I have a carry it all mindset. I'm not looking to compromise or make do. With that in mind I want a large RV with lots of space, lots of storage and lots of carrying capacity. A genset or now days A/C capable solar is a must. I want the ability to be totally self contained if necessary. I don't want to fear or struggle with hills or mountains going up or down. I want my entire experience to be relaxing. With all those factors in mind I have a diesel dually truck and a 40' 5th wheel. You're fooling yourself if you think a dually and 40' fifth wheel doesn't involve compromises. You can't get that setup to most of the spots I camp, and the truck stinks off-road and in snow/ice. Obviously you can be comfortable with those compromises because they may not bother you, but they're certainly compromises that would be deal killers for other folks. I see you are in Idaho. Living in Idaho would be my firt compromise! I wish all the people moving here viewed Idaho like that.

RE: [SOLVED] Work truck with service bed to tow a fifth wheel?

Highway Products makes some killer aluminum flat beds with multiple storage options. They will build you exactly what you want. The price is a bit brutal, but they are very nice.

RE: Found It, What a joke. Buying in 2021 LOL. You can keep it.

'Also remember, dealers base their appraisals on actual auction results, not on KBB's mathematical formulas. That is exactly right, and a point that I don't think everyone is aware of.

RE: Do I have have enough Truck?

BenK mentioned it, but having had a handful of GMT trucks that I towed with and the brakes suck in stock form. I would for sure budget to upgrade them.

RE: Check those prices

I stopped using aftermarket (NAPA) fuel filters and only buy the OEM AC/Delco brand after an issue with my 5500. Perhaps they are all the same and it don't really matter (although the dealer claimed it did) but it makes me feel better.

RE: New Truck!!

I'm sure the Companion is a great hitch, but I love my 24K CURT As do I.

RE: When to change oil

No drama... No special tools... No risk of contaminating intake system...You can simply prefill if you choose frills... no debates on which method to access the filter is easier Yep and let’s not forget good mirrors. Nice you have at least ONE easily accessible item. At least you don't have to open the hood to fill the DEF tank. Filling under the hood is a PINTA no doubt and personally glad they moved it. But the upside is if you cross contaminate those trucks with DEF in the fuel, you are truly gifted in a very special way. Cross contaminating when they are side by side, doesn't require you to be gifted, just a big bowl of dumass in the morning and there you are, down $15K when you eventually get your truck back.

RE: Tires - for a truck...

I will also second the Falcon WildPeak tires. Have them on a 3500 and a 1500. They did great in Winter and held their own in the Spring mud. They are a real popular tire here.

RE: Disappointing article- GM updates!

Some may not like the looks of the GM HD trucks. However the new GM HD trucks are a sales success. The looks have not stopped buyers from buying them.

RE: love the truck hate the ride

I drove a 2020 Silverado Reg Cab Dually for over a year. Was just an LT, and the seats were not bad, and ride was not as smooth as others, but not unbearable. My '20 CC DRW 4X4 has a ride that I would call..Rigid. I could lower the psi some and that would likely help some. Handles weight well, the towing capability is a huge improvement over the 06 CC DRW that it replaced and it is worth the loss in ride quality for the increase in capacity.

RE: F150 w EcoBoost 2.7

I pull a 10'tall by 8' X 26' long flat faced car trailer. With a 4K car inside and the 4K trailer at 80 mph, I get 8-9 with an 18 Duramax. Its not a Ford but I really kinda doubt the difference would substantial. The comment on the wind resistance is spot on. I can pull 30K of equipment on a gooseneck and get the same mpg. If you made the change simply for the mpg increase, you will be driving for a long time to make that pencil out.

RE: Rv-ers prefer Duramax?

Cummins12v98 your Ram would look a lot better with an Indian on the trailer.....just sayin.

RE: Nokian Rockproof tires?

The Ridge Grappler has become a popular tire here as well. Most people that I talk to like the tire, I have heard guys complain about not getting enough miles out of them and they are spendy of course. I have run numerous sets of the EXO Grappler, which I like, but are also spendy. I have never run the Ridge personally. I am currently running a couple rigs with Wild Peaks and one with Toyo AT3's and one with EXO's.

RE: Washington state bans new gas light vehicle sales as of 2030

and that is why major parts of Or. and Wa. want to become part of the new proposed State of "Greater Idaho" which would stretch from the Wyoming boarder to the Pacific. I truly feel for all of those negatively impacted by Portland and Seattle politics.

RE: Why do you Cummins guys want more gears

There is NOTHING in writing stating RAM is changing transmissions. There has been talk of a REAL Allison also. Is there something wrong with the fake Allison? I have had 7 of them never spent a dime on one except to change the fluid. As long as they work they should, I could care less if its a 'Real" Allison or GM's version of a "Real Allison".

RE: Looking for a 2.5" receiver hitch

I have a Bulletproof Hitch rated at 36K. Super heavy duty, was not cheap, but well made for sure. I will save money when I can, but I am not interested in going cheap on hitches. I put this on the back of my '20 3500 DRW. We pull about 20K with that hitch. Solid, there is no play, with 8" of hitch mounting height options. They make lighter duty options as well.

RE: Why do you Cummins guys want more gears

I honestly wasn't expecting the 10 speed to be as big of a deal as it turned out to be. I was told of the seamless shifting, no dead pedal and so forth. Having an '18 with a 6 speed parked next to the '20 with a 10 speed, makes the comparison very evident. Assuming it holds up, and I have yet to read anything that suggests it wont, it makes a good pickup, even better and in the Duramax, a lot better in my view. While the torque rise is not the same between the V-8 diesels as it is the straight 6, I suspect that if your happy with a 6 speed Cummins, you would be more happy with the 10 speed. My Class 8 trucks have had and currently have 18 speed Eaton's whenever possible. It is great having gearing options in big trucks, I now feel the same way about the class 3 trucks. If your a 10 speed nonbeliever, consider driving one, even better is to pull with one. The Ford is probably good as well I have never driven one, but I can speak to the GM version.

RE: Help With These Tire Brands General, Continental, Nokian

The Nokian Rotiiva HT I think looks like a better compromise than the One tire. The Rotiiva would move more water and help prevent hydroplaning and look to be better than the One tire on the off the highway driving. The Nokian Winter tires are pretty popular around here and have been for years, certainly top shelf. The tightly spaced HT style tires do one thing really well and that is lasting a long time on asphalt. Much depends on what and how much off asphalt driving you do or plan to do. A lot of water or any mud or loose gravel make the HT tires a lesser choice.
