  1. Talk me out of a Ram.

    It may have 30 more hp, but it has 0% chance of getting better overall fuel mileage than a 6.2, in apples to apples real world conditions. While they have a lot of power and torque, Ego-boosts need perfect conditions for good mileage; flat or downhill, warm weather, tailwind or no headwind, no trailer or payload, gentle right foot. As soon as any boost builds, fuel mileage goes poof. Since they came out 8 years ago, I have yet to meet or converse with a single real world ego-boost owner that could get the advertised mileage from them. Ford forums are full of complaints about the mileage. The posters that claim good mileage are either Ford employees, or liars.
  2. Talk me out of a Ram.

    IMO, it's real simple. Buying a Ram is false economy. They sell em cheap up front, they have high ownership costs & horrible resale.
  3. Not on my '17. Not enough to cause any concern anyways.....
  4. Not sure how the OP is breaking traction on wet roads when the TC won't allow it. I drive a lot, including a lot of wet conditions. never had even a hint of an issue with wet traction, with either the stock Bridgestones, or my winter Duratracs. Maybe tires are the issue for the OP? Also, putting weight behind the rear wheels is a bad idea, as it becomes a pendulum when going around corners in slippery conditions.
  5. How to fix GM undercoating and frame rust with POR15

    I had an asphalt based coating put on my truck when new. It stays pretty flexible and seals well. However, where something contacts the frame, such as hoist pads, or a stray rock etc., the coating can get damaged or removed & rust can start. I go over it every spring and do touchups with a wire wheel and recoat with the same product. A lot less work than stripping all the rust & wax & recoating. Granted, if the frame is already like the one in the vid, the process outlined is correct. My last truck had heavy frame rust. I want to avoid that on this one. I'd really like a truck with a stainless chassis & lower cab panels(floor, corners, rockers etc.). I'd pay extra for it.
  6. Splash guards suck

    It's like that on the K2xx's as well. First rain you drive thru will clean those out. They are also easy to clean with a garden hose.
  7. I have a soft roll-up cover and had no major issues with it so far. I have it more for keeping items out of the weather rather than security. I think it may help with security in the sense of 'out of sight, out of mind'. So far, nobody's tried to cut it. I like the pure versatility of the soft rollups. For more security, it would be nice to have a soft cover with a grid of small stainless cable woven into the cover, say on a 2 or 3" grid. Pretty hard to cut that with a knife.
  8. From a '98 K1500 to a '19 LD...wow

    Although this issue is a bit subjective and based on personal preference, you would have to pay me a lot of money to give up my '17 and go back to a GMT 800 or 400. Everything sucks about them in comparison to the modern K2's and T2's Ride, mechanicals, driveability, power, etc.etc Drove several GMT 400's and owned an 800 for 11 years. Not interested in going back to that. My 17 Sierra is by far the best vehicle I've ever owned. Love it.
  9. Just Do It! - 2020 Silverado 1500 3.0L Duramax Diesel

    Looks like this could be a killer 1/2 ton! One thing I like is the more realistic pricing of the engine. For a long time now, the diesel premium has been quite excessive in most trucks/cars and simply doesn't reflect the difference in manufacturing costs. This one is much more sensibly priced.
  10. This is kind of a neat story. To me it's interesting to look at the very humble beginnings of American Honda & see how far they've come since then. I also like that they have taken a (current) competitors brand and restored it back to then to show how it really was. Here is a modern view of the the building they used back then; https://www.google.ca/maps/place/4077+W+Pico+Blvd,+Los+Angeles,+CA+90019,+USA/@34.048023,-118.3265806,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x80c2b8f561b6311f:0x28a61a222d2eeb2f!8m2!3d34.0480186!4d-118.3243919
  11. Hop on the Honda Hoarders page on FB. There's still quite a few of them out there and they come up for sale from time to time, but they do command a price..........
  12. Where are you feeding the fish line (zip tie) from and where to? PS is that Brad Lackie in your avy?
  13. I tried several times to fish a line from the front headliner console space to the back by the 3rd brake light. The fishline goes all the way back, but I can't locate it thru the 3rd brakelight cavity. Also tried going from back to front with no success. If there is a better way/method, I'm all ears.
  14. This is the one I have: https://www.blackboxmycar.ca/collections/viofo/products/viofo-a129 The site also has several other 2 channel options.
  15. Still have to get the wire up to the front camera. Also, I believe the camera I have isn't designed for exterior use.
