  1. Before I retired we had a 2004 2500 6.0 the thing was a tank and took all the abuse we sent at it. The old 6.0s are terrific engines and never skip a beat.
  2. Looks good. What’s the tire specs?
  3. I beg to differ that a heavier truck doesn’t stop weight faster and easier. You have more weight on all 4 tires giving you more friction/grip. Allowing you to slow down quicker. Take that 1500 you mention speed up to 50 mph, the coast to a stop. The truck with 500lbs in the bed will stop before the unloaded truck. Yes I do agree with you with properly setup trailer brakes will help for the most part. But a heavy enough trailer/load will push a truck.Been pulling trailers for over 40 years. And I can tell you my 2500 stop my dump trailer at 9000 lbs enter then my son’s1500.
  4. I will look into them. Thanks for the info!
  5. Can’t wait to see pics. Ford has a new root beer looking brown that looks good. Hopefully gms looks just a good!
  6. Hey guys, I’m looking for a 3m or xpel pre-cut kit for my truck I just ordered. In the past I’ve ordered these kits off amazon but as of late I can’t find any kits online. The last kit was partial hood, fenders full bumper, and bumper cap, along with fog and heads lights. For around $400 cad. Anybody know of a good website or business to order from. Locally here in my city they want over $1500 just for the pre-cuts. Any help or direction would be much appreciated.
  7. I use to tow with a 1500 6.2. Hp and torque are one thing. It’s the weight of the truck to think about also. Our enclosed trailer is 4000lbs and with our car inside is almost 8000lbs. One or two emergency stops convinced me to upgrade to a 2500, and I couldn’t be happier. It takes weight to stop weight also. Even tho my old 6.2 with the max towing could pull it no problem slowing down was another. Just food for though. If you can swing it diesels are aowsome rigs. No regrets here
  8. Man that truck looks good. I’ve owed black truck in my day. Never again! But that think look sinister! Congrats on the new truck
  9. Not once did I mention any names in this thread. Don’t realize how some people on this forum take things so personal and literary. It’s called a figure of speech. Or is it I’m too old and the young population these days takes everything to heart. I guess I’m just an old grumpy fart.
  10. That’s good to hear. I hope the new platform stays that way for years to come!
  11. There is multiple threads and post about different issues that have occurred with the new 2019. Ps I’m not complaining about anything or anyone. All I did was state a simple fact. New model years equal issues and bug. That’s what warranty is for.
  12. Your welcome. Not gonna lie you made me chuckle pretty good today. In all seriousness tho, guys are buying a new model year truck experience some issues come to a forum and rant about issues. It’s a risk you take. I know I’ve been there when I purchased my 2014 and now my 2018 L5P. Life’s too short to bitch and complain about. In the end it’s just a truck and it’s just money, trucks can be replaced and money can be made. Don’t sweat the small stuff. That’s what warranty and the dealers are for. If your not getting the survice or the dealer is dicking you around change dealers. Everyone has that option. If that still not solving issues switch brands. I hope your dealer and everyone else that has a 2019 gets there trucks all solved and taken care of. I didn’t mean to cause any waves.
  13. It’s what happen when you buy a new model year.
  14. Seem to me you need a beer and maybe need to move to Canada. We don’t have those issue here. I’f your car washes are recycling water that sucks. Around my parts they don’t. Gotta do what we gotta do I guess.
  15. Not to start a pissing match but our roads are no better here in the winter. We get bad black ice, along with constant thaw and freezing the roads here are saluted from the end of October to the end of April. The city here put salt down 3 days before a storm which makes it so much fun keeping your windshield clean. I don’t undercoat my truck and I usually keep them 5-7 years. Also work in a mine and have to drive through tailings mud, still don’t get the rust your talking out. There is a difference between surfaces rust and rust through. The new trucks have been using galvanized metal and electro plated steel so I don’t see what the issue is. The wax coating comes off in a few seasons but that just surface oxidation. It’s not like your frame is rusting through like a Toyota. But then again I do drive through the touchless carwash at least 3 times a week.
