  1. Hemi 2500 towing

    3G Dodge RAM - Towing Talk
    I found myself in that position trying to beat one of our hurricanes home here in Florida a few years ago. I'm just glad it was a head wind. Crosswinds of that nature can lay you over. I too was running 55mph at nearly 4k rpm. Won't hurt the engine to run it that way all day but I didn't enjoy...
  2. Is synthetic oil really worth the extra money?

    3G Dodge Ram Performance Talk
    Fell from grace... After 120k miles of great service from my 2005 Hemi Ram using Mobil-1 and then carrying over to my 2010 F250 5.4L, I caved to the price of almost $8 a qt and went with $4 qt Motorcraft Semi synthetic. My co-worker friend has reached 200k miles on his like new running Hemi...
  3. Anyone ever customize their weapon?

    Firearms and Archery Talk
    I put a Hogue grip on my Mossberg 500A HD shotgun. Feels way better in the hand and I can put 100 rounds through it now without turning my hand blue. The factory pistol grip is terrible. I "might" change out the trigger connector and spring for a NY trigger in my G17. I like a little more...

    Wishing you well with the chemo... My dad, at 79 has been taking chemo for chronic leukemia for the past five years. Not a fun trip by any means. Looking forward to your pics and trip reports!
  5. Now Thats Ramming It!!!!

    Off-Topic Talk
    Noooo not mine... But it did look like it! The Ram and 5th wheel that took out the bank drive through was a man and his son. They weren't hurt as the roof only caught the side of the truck. It looks like it got smashed in the video but it was only the side of the truck that got it. Lucky for...
  6. Ford vs Dodge towing in the real world

    4G Dodge RAM - Towing Talk
    That's odd. Our fleet of 5.4L Superduty's are constantly on the road. I don't recall any shop time with them. But, there are die hard Ford only Dodge haters too that swear Dodges are trash and if not for the Cummins engine, Dodge would sell no trucks. I think they're a little biased as well. A...
  7. Ford vs Dodge towing in the real world

    4G Dodge RAM - Towing Talk
    Going way back to the original post and video, I have no doubt the Ram will accelerate up the grades with 10k lbs of wind catching trailer behind it. We did it with our 2500HD Hemi Ram a few times just for fun. But, it's not at a leisurely rpm. 70mph in 2nd is right at 5k rpm with the 3.73 ratio...
  8. Ford vs Dodge towing in the real world

    4G Dodge RAM - Towing Talk
    Two 250 lb cylinders in each hand would be 1000 lbs. I'd get a buddy to help me put 'em in the truck and let the truck do the work. But then again, I drive a gasser.:D

  10. Ford vs Dodge towing in the real world

    4G Dodge RAM - Towing Talk
    Yep, it's a shame a good American made pickup is considered garbage due to it's engine source. Just imagine if back in '83, Ford would have said yes to Cummins and goodbye to IH/Neverstart. But the 6.9L Neverstart was more like a gas engine to drive and fit in the truck and the Cummins was very...

  12. Ford vs Dodge towing in the real world

    4G Dodge RAM - Towing Talk
    What a bunch of squabblin'! We towed our 10,400 lb actual weight high profile 5th wheel all over the southeast with our '01.5 and '03 Cummins powered Ram. Then we towed the same 5th wheel over the same routes and same speeds with our Hemi powered '05 2500HD Ram. At 100k miles of trouble free...

  14. Any 2500 or 3500 With Hemi's towing

    3G Dodge RAM - Towing Talk
    Just doesn't have the same flare at HemiRoy. Middle initial is D.:o The Hemi powered 2500HD was the most reliable vehicle I've ever owned. But, at 120k, it was starting to gives signs of wear. Not the engine. It still ran like a new one. But a vibration from the trans and occasional odd shift...

    It's just unlocking the torque converter in 3rd (direct). Not a problem and still well below peak torque rpm and almost 2k rpm below peak hp rpm. Not a problem.
  16. 2009 vs 2010 Towing Capacity

    4G Dodge RAM - Towing Talk
    Having a load properly secured is a written law here. You state that you can simply up your weight on your registration and be legal. For tax purposes. But it does show that you understand that the vehicles GVWR is not law if you can simply change it with the tax office. All of my 3/4 ton...

    4G Dodge RAM - Towing Talk
    If you cause a crash and kill someone you'll be charged with the moving infraction that caused the wreck whether you're over or under your GVWR. This statute refers to weight that is allowed per axle, wheel, square inch, etc by written law. It's all in the link. It is NOT about privately owned...

    I have never accidently got drunk! However, I have many times in my younger years loaded a 1/2 ton pickup to the point the axle was on the stops. If a guy were oblivious as most are about weights and ratings and loaded 30k lbs (or 1k lbs) of lead ingots to take to the ingot depot and broke his...

    I would have a friendly chat with the agent if I were concerned. Then I would have a friendly chat with the insurance commissioner. If you were driving drunk as a skunk and crashed into a tree, your insurance covers you. You'll likely not have insurance with that company there after but the...
