    The Detroit Locker,Yukon Locker, and Truetrac are good to go for towing and heavy use IME.

    Mind your air pressures though, keep them equal on the street.

    It might be worthwhile to look into the Titan and a leased, turned in, F150 as well.

    Fords are more expensive, they're supposed to be. 39,000 would open up your budget to them, though.

    If you don't 100% need a diesel, then don't get a diesel. Need to get past the fanboy stuff...

    With proper vehicle setup the Cooper STT's are the best tires I've ever run.

    But if you cut corners on your ride, like for example, no locker in the rear, they just can't overcome that. A rear...

    I use heavier material hiking rain jackets and pants for rain gear. Heavier than the ultra light stuff that just tear in the wind. In warm weather I don't bother with rain gear. I just get wet.

    Re-evaluate the trailer. A little enclosed lawn care trailer hauls sportbikes in safety, and plenty of room for more gear.

    It doesn't get annoying until you've reached your destination, then...

    You have my permission to slap that guy silly. 30mpg in a fullsize is complete BS.

    My Mustang doesn't get that. And it's just a little car.

    <--Master Gen Tech: Yes, a broken wire hidden in the harness of a non critical component is a serious B to find and repair. Even worse, yours was intermittent. If it don't stay broken, we can...

    Goodyear Duratrac- will wiggle for the first 3000 miles due to extra soft winter compound rubber being really soft until it drys out some. Thick tread blocks add to it.

    Should be more of a tickedy tickedy tick on startup. Perfectly normal. Shouldn't last more than 2 seconds. It's the valve train running before being pumped up with oil. If you're truck has...

    Well, I think you're in luck. My coworker, also a Master Tech, recently removed the DEF and EGR and reflashed the ECM so no Obungo lamp. Sounded easy enough. I'm just glad the aftermarket...

    A bare bones, but still pretty nice, Ram 2500 4x4 is about $35,000 around here. Nice pricing indeed. Can hardly get a little Mustang for that. Ford is at least $41,000 for a similar truck. I...

    No.

    You can pull 12v from your fog lights and use it to power a relays control circuit. Use a Hella 12v relay or similar. The relays coil is very little load, no larger fuse needed. Then...

    Ford has been dying to make an aluminum body truck for a long time. The way they rust proof the steel trucks is a clue. They've been wanting to push a rust free body for a long time. Although...

    Perfectly good expired lease F150's are around $20-29,000 all the time.

    But they won't be the new Al bodies. And keep an extra $1500 on hand to replace the rocker boxes under the doors if you...

    That's got to be a used 5.4L. It's $2000 labor to swap long blocks. A reman'd long block Ford 5.4L is $3900. Transmission rebuilds are about $2000. It's so darn expensive, I'd recommend...

    I didn't know they offered a CC long bed 4x4?

    I wouldn't sweat the Aluminum. The tech has been on the shelf for 20 years now at Ford. It's only recently that people are willing to pay extra...

    That was quick. Good choice.

    You can add lockers and the offroad stuff as needed. The PW is a bit off, for most of us. The 2.5 Carli's are great. But get one of the better kits, not the...

    Comparing the ride of a little 1/2 ton to a 1 ton truck, is as unfair as comparing the durability of the 1 ton to the 1/2 ton.

    Still, big trucks have thick seats. I feel like a sissy soft lazy...

    More than likely your dipstick just shows loss of oil better, while others are angled to hide it. See it all the time. I run 10w30 in 0w20 engines in the summer. 5w30 in the winter.

    You can switch back and forth at will.

    As Scout mentioned. Synthetic is better at cleaning, and is thinner. It'll leak out of marginal seals. That's not the oils fault, it's the engines. ...

    A Powerwagon will haul any camper as well as a tundra will. Even with the weaker offroad springs. I'd go 2500 instead. I don't require all the PW options. A 2500 with a locker added would be...

    Don't know those trails. But a 250 or 2500 is the same size as a 1500. Just sayin'. If you've outgrown an SUV, it's only another year and you'll have outgrown a 1500's capacity as well.
