D45 Insurance said it's a total loss

There's a discrepancy between the truck being a long bed and a short bed. It's a long bed but state farm has it as a SHORT

I have to prove its a long bed before they discussed payout

Waiting to hear from the insurance company

MNorby From my friends experience get a 6.4 ram with 4.10s and not 3.73s. My 2015 Silverado 6.0 truck will out tow his 2014 6.4 Ram even though I am 50+ HP lower on paper. The GM has 4.10s and a lower 1st in the tranny though so getting the load moving is a big play there. Watch the TFL trucks or whatever they are called for the IKE gauntlet test.

ky scrambled I know three guys that went from Duramax's to the 6.4. They LOOOOVE the 6.4. Keep in mind that they LOOOOOVED the Duramax when they had them also. That's how most folks are I think.

Asking which one to get will give you opinions all over the place, and everyone has a buddy who has either had to take it to the dealer a million times or who has a million miles on it and never changed the oil. The big 3 all make a similar capable, similar quality, similar priced vehicle.

If you've always liked Fords and don't have a bad taste in your mouth over what the last one did to you get another Ford, you will like it better than the Ram. If you hate your current Ford and it did you wrong, get the Ram you'll like it better than the Ford.

D45 Ford 6.2 vs Ram 6.4

Not sure which is better, but I prefer the Ram overall
05-21-2019 07:18 PM
YotaAtieToo I hate to break it to you, but all the brands are getting cheaper. Going to a fiat to get a more quality truck is laughable. Only guy I know with a new 6.4 2500 had to take it back to the dealer twice in the first few hundred miles.

Debating taking the ARE cap off also and selling it, but I don't see many 6.5 foot bed trucks, in blue

D45 I do clean the MAP every fall, some dirty does come off

Mileage had never been affected
04-21-2019 09:25 PM
InDaRed2 Yep those type of lug nuts suck. Pulled 4 caps off on my gf's edge last time I rotated her tires.

Mine on my fuel wheels are almost rounded off from rotating so much. Definitely getting a new set next time.

Have you guys cleaned the 3 map sensors yet? I've read they get pretty dirty and can pick up some milage if cleaned. Need to try mine as I have 163k and haven't cleaned them yet.
04-21-2019 08:11 PM
87manche is that en electron microscope image?


I fucking hate those lug nuts with the cap. Always happens.

as much as I hate bolts on my eurotrash, at least they are high quality shit.

D45 More Ford quality to deal with.....

Front painted bumper is rusting, badly

Rotated the tires today and the end caps on 4 lug nuts broke right off



Quality!!!
