    Italian Option

    2020 F250 7.3 10 spd rear diff order question

    Those intended uses are all different enough, that if you try to meet all those needs with the single vehicle that you describe, you will end up with a vehicle that is compromised (at best) at any one purpose, and downright horrible for the other two. A better option might be to select vehicles...

    2020 F250 7.3 10 spd rear diff order question

    ...and raising the center of gravity and reducing the braking capabilities of a light-duty truck towing that much weight, is not a good idea either. Not to mention the fact that if he smokes a transmission because of towing with oversized tires and/or an aftermarket tune, Ford isn't going to be...

    If he wants to tow 13,000 pounds with a lifted Ford truck on oversized tires, he should be looking at the F350, F450, F550, F650, or F750.

    ...and regarding towing with oversized tires and/or lift kits, keep in mind that the factory-specified GVWR, GCWR, and trailer tow weight ratings, are for STOCK vehicles. Modifying the vehicle with oversized tires and/or lift kits, will REDUCE the amount of weight that your truck can safely...

    2020 F250 7.3 10 spd rear diff order question

    OP, I think I may have figured out where you came up with the incorrect 2100 cruise rpm- I think you may have not been taking into account the top three gears in the transmission or the torque converter clutch. You would be doing about 2,100 rpm at 60 mph if you had an old C6 3-speed non lock up...

    "Skinny" tires on a Full-Size?

    We're using the tall and relatively skinny stock 405/105R20 load range M (22 ply rating) tires on our truck. I believe they have a lot of potential off road.

    Forget "effective ratio" and just do the math- a 4.30 final drive in conjunction with a .63 10th gear, is 2.71 overall. With 4.30 final drive and 37" tires, your engine would be running at about 1,500 rpm at 60 mph in 10th gear.

    2020 F250 7.3 10 spd rear diff order question

    Is that a typo, or is your intended cruise speed 105 mph? With 37" tall tires, a 3.55 final drive, a .63 10th gear, and the torque converter clutch locked up, your engine will be running at about 1,200 rpm at 60 mph.

    Propane range?

    My wife wants a propane powered stove/oven. We don't know much about them. She's looking at some Airxcel Suburban 22" models. Can somebody point us in the right direction?

    Nova Kool R3800 refrigerator?

    Any input? The spec sheet says it draws 1.1A at 24VDC, or 2.2A at 12VDC. My wife likes the interior configuration.
