I will almost promise you that the issues you are seeing are those garbage tires. Any truck I have bought those things are off within a thousand kms or so- they are basically designed to hold air on...

If you're going to be hooked for a good chunk of the trucks lifetime, or if you're going to be pulling a large amount of weight at higher altitudes- Diesel is the way to go if you can stomach the up...

And now it means a 150/1500 series truck to me. Still a half ton truck. What I have and always will call it, just like mine now is a 3/4 ton and my neighbour has a 1 ton. It's just what we call them-...

Its unfortunate that pretty much every half ton is now marketed at the mall crawler crowd.

2500 gasser. The coils in these things are incredible actually. It's like they pulled them off a train car and stuck them in a truck. Some pretty big fivers sitting on these trucks with coils and...

Yup. It's not the coils as a whole, it's the rate on them. The OEM coils were horrible in my 1500- swapped out for some TuffTruck springs and had a hard time getting enough sag to actually engage the...

Fiberglass will be more resilient to hail, but if it does get pierced (our did) it's more difficult to fix. This is from those big, nasty...

There will be no issue right up until your first big gust of wind or a semi passing at 120kmph. Then you will have to surgically remove your seat covers from your butt. That's too long and overall...

Lol... again- you're only looking at one side of the coin. Towing. The ecodiesel (and potentially Ford's small diesel) have a place. If I were commuting 100km a day and only needed the box of the...

I don't believe that to be true at all. It has hardly been a flop. The uptake on that 3L has actually been quite good. Just poke around on the forums- very few guys have regretted buying those...

Gotta agree with safetypin. None of the new diesels turn my crank which is why I ended up with a gasser HD. I have no time for the emissions, pump, injector, sensor, other crap failures that seem to...

If they rated the 150s for what they are mechanically and physically capable of actually handling, what incentive would anyone have to buy an F250?

Just a thought....

10k fifth wheel at 20% pin weight (just for a figure) is 2000lbs on the pin. That should answer your question. If you have the available GVWR to carry the pin (plus or minus a few hundred that won't...

Um, what? Did I miss a meeting? When did the 5.0 become "antiquated" at only 5 or 6 years old- the same age as the EcoBoost?

I am not tooting the Ram horn even though I drive one (I really like both!) but that 5.7 mated with the 8 speed and 3.92s would **** and run when you stuck your foot into it. Had my 5.7 for two years...

Beyond the numbers game that would be far superior to any half ton. Lots of GM 6.0s on the towing boards and on the road. They are stout platforms. That's a no brainer to me if it suits your needs...

Forget the mill up front, look at the axle ratios out back. That will be more of an indicator since the 5.3 and 5.4 are pretty darn close in output. Overall, the 5.3 will likely net you a little...
