    I never gave two hoots about opinions on Consumer Reports. Buy it. Take care of it. Fix it. Have fun.

    Helpful specs for those interested in the 2.7 EB F150

    4,769lbs is dry weight, and probably doesn't factor in any options you have on your truck. This is why online specs for payload is so far off of actual. I'm guessing your Leer weighs, what, 200lbs? So 1,700 lbs or so of payload. What does the sticker say in the door jamb? I'm guessing close...

    Helpful specs for those interested in the 2.7 EB F150

    I thought it was pretty well known the 2.7 has a lower GV/GCWR (like the 3.3). Both good engines but the 3.3 runs out of breath too quick for me up here in the mountains. 2.7 has power for days. Especially loaded down with people and gear. Towing....forget about it.

    Ranger

    Haven’t driven one. But checked one out at the dealer. The interior seems nice. Front seats are comfortable. Rear has little more room than a Tacoma but still small and the backs were too upright for me (crew cab). I do wish they went with 3.3 V6 Instead of the 2.3 Eco.

    2018 Ram Megacab Swiss Army Knife Build with trailer

    Looking at the map, I think that is it. Otherwise known as BLM 300. Where did you go in from? Big Water? Any technical sections? Looks like fairly well graded dirt road.

    2018 Ram Megacab Swiss Army Knife Build with trailer

    would you mind sharing what road you took from Kanab to Escalante? I love the area down there and always looking to venture around. That looks like fun times.

    GMT400 Suburban as Base Overland Rigs?

    You're going on National Forest roads and want a 4" lift? Just get some good tires and go. Burb should be excellent for what you need. But don't discount a crewcab truck, 6-8' bed, and a hi-rise shell. That would serve you just as well. Gives you more headroom, and future flexibility in...

    ?’s about options on a custom order 2020 Ford F-350 6.2L gasser

    Everyone makes such a big deal about the aluminum bed. Steel, aluminum, doesn't matter. If it bothers you, get a Linex done. Substantially strengthens the bed.

    ?’s about options on a custom order 2020 Ford F-350 6.2L gasser

    I had thought 2019's had 10-sp. but I am wrong. Still 6-sp. This guy's credibility continues to erode. Good thing none of the reliability reports are based on mechanics' hearsay.

    ?’s about options on a custom order 2020 Ford F-350 6.2L gasser

    I'm not sure where the salesman comment came from, but I think the point was, your friend sees a very very small sample size. Is he actually seeing a larger percentage of SD's having issues, or just a larger number due to the fact that sales have almost doubled since 2011?

    I don't get this. So hardly any in the shop are new 10 speed SD's and yet you are nuts for shopping SD's? Sounds like you need to find a new mechanic friend.

    Ram 1500 payload

    For my family of 5, I came to the conclusion I needed about 2k lbs of payload to be on the safe side. Not that I'll need that much for every camp out, because weekend trip packing is much different than 3-7 day outings. We also occasionally tow a 5k lb trailer. If you're ever considering...

    06-08 Ram 1500 mega cab vs 09+ f150 supercrew

    Specs I see don’t seem like THAT much: Megacab Vs F150 Rear headroom: 40.5 vs 40.3 Rear hip: 64.4 vs 64.6 Rear leg: 44.2 vs 43.5 Rear shoulder: 66.5 vs 65.5 Although, the Megacab has the recline feature which would be Awesome.

    Bronco.

    To be honest, if Honda would have stretched the wheelbase, lifted it a little bit (from the factory), I would probably have one. It'd be a modern day Eurovan/Synchro. Suicide doors or sliding door, either would have worked for me. So I've got no problems with the new 110. I'd like to get one...
