Re: Warranty Wars

The only thing warranty does is frustrate technicians. There are of course exceptions wherein the tech can make serious money on certain repairs if theyre good enough at them. Take WK/WD 3.6 timing cover reseals or electric steering rack replacements as solid examples.

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.
