  1. F150 electric

    In the past I was very stubborn when it came to all the new technology. But, as open minded as I'm trying to be, I've changed my mind. (I still think that the 12" screen in a RAM looks out of place the more I look at it) Anyway, electric power is available to us in massive amounts. We just need to learn how to harvest the power. so long j-ten-ner
  2. engine stop start

    Start-stop technology is not a bad idea. I think that the days are gone, when an engine used an excessive amount of fuel at start-up. Thanks to direct injection and/or other technologies. Back in the days they used to say that you only save fuel when the engine is off for more than 15 seconds. The only thing what keeps me hesitant is the use of an old style starter system. Due to my job, I'm starting my truck at least 15 times a day and I feel bad about the starter, so that at times I just leave the truck running. If I knew that my (or a potential new) truck has a non mechanical starting system, like a starter/alternator-flywheel-kinda-thing w/o mechanical parts involved, I wouldn't think twice about it. so long j-ten-ner
  3. F150 electric

    Well, it's still better than "rolling coal". IMO, the modern technology is influenced by 1. the thriving engineer with a vision, who is looking past the today possible and available infrastructure and readiness of the common people, 2.the common people, who follow a stream, set by opinion making advertisements and politics/politicians, who in return... 3. ...follow the money of the lobbyists. Having said that, I don't mind electric vehicles at all. As long as gas is available to run my boat and maybe an old fashion carbureted V8. so long j-ten-ner
  4. Pictures of the dogs that protect your truck

    Almost two years old...time flies...
  5. I agree with you. To some degree. There's no point to use abusive language when talking to a representative from the customer service. As you say, it's just someone doing his job. But, as a representative he should also be able to handle some "direct language". All this tip-toeing around the bush nowadays is getting you nowhere. Sometimes you need to cut to the point to get the same across. so long j-ten-ner
  6. engine stop start

    https://www.autostopeliminator.com/ Maybe they will come up with a device for the GM trucks as well. Good thing about it is that it can be turned on or off as you like it. You want it off, great. And the wify can turn it back on. so long j-ten-ner
  7. You guys are so ignorant! This is just one of millions of trucks already produced. "Technical editor David Beard wrote, "I like the engine in this truck, and that's it."" I'm so glad that the 6.2 is made available across the whole Silverado line-up...no? so long j-ten-ner
  8. Well, they may argue that there was an emergency vehicle approaching the intersection. That's why the others cars stopped. You're not slowing down until the car moved into your lane. The speed on your footage shows that you're going 40mph. What was the speed limit at this point? so long j-ten-ner
  9. 6.2L Yes or No

    Hey grumpy, You've got it all wrong! It's about surviving the merge onto the highway. so long j-ten-ner .
  10. Maybe they should add with a throaty, old cowboy like voice: "Thousands of American workers take the fall so that YOU (pointing the finger dramatically into the camera) have to pay less..." so long j-ten-ner
  11. hahaha...like anywhere else in North America..."No problem Sir! Please give me your credit card!" so long j-ten-ner
  12. Oh boy, back to kindergarten again? The point is that it is certainly unnecessary to show a message to remind you to keep the eyes on the road and then one has to take his eyes off the road to read the message. Kinda pathetic. And, with more features forced on us, like the start/stop function, we're getting close to have a pre-check list and start flicking switches before take-off, like in a helicopter. so long j-ten-ner
  13. It's just another psychological trick to push you to the self driving cars... so long j-ten-ner
  14. Same here. Still, I don't mind to have a decent fuel mileage, while I'm doing it. so long j-ten-ner
  15. Thieving Ba$$tards!

    Although this would give satisfaction for a moment, it will cost you more in the long run than your truck. Welcome to the free world and constitutional state. But I'm sure that you know that. As for the truck, I think that your immobilizer is sufficient. After all, they could not take off with your truck. so long j-ten-ner
