Re: Honest Engines

Gotta love the Cummins Sure, if you want, but that's not what makes all that towing capacity work. It's Rope-Pusher's ilk working in the suspension , braking , and GCWR arms race departments...with assists from the slushbox department and the tire supplier, encouragement from the marketing departme...

Re: Honest Engines

fifth-wheel trailer towing capacity of 30,000-pounds. That will save some customers with large trailers from having to move up to a Class 4 or 5 truck. Also: "Ram 3500 Heavy Duty maximum gooseneck and conventional hitch maximum trailer weight ratings for 2018 are 31,210 lbs and 20,000 lbs., re...

Re: Watkins Grandfather was a....

For most of his life my grandfather thought his name was John Alfred Watkins. Turns out due to some bizarre olde timey thing, it was actually Alfred John Watkins.

FTFY

Just don't put on stacks and roll coal...that's as bad as a huge rice wing and 8 inch fartcan.

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

The easiest ingress/egress, from what I've heard, is to need to neither climb into the vehicle nor fall into it. That's probably a little higher than most conventional sedans and significantly lower than most CUVs. Not if you're me. New pickup trucks are certainly tall compared to those a decade ag...

Re: Ouch-Heel Toe Flub

The old guard has been here for ten years, give or take, and are all moving on to other areas of life. And facebook groups have become the go-to over forums.

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

I've been using 7-way ever since I bought my Pop-up camping trailer. It seems tummy that I have less problems with corroded contacts. A lot of the trailers I've borrowed over the years also use 7-way connectors, so it's been handy to have my vehicles set to accept them. I need to do one of the dual...
