    is like poker. Drawing the cards will detemine whether you have it or not.

    Anyone remember the link to the article where you had to pay $2.50 to receive it? I think I can scrape up $2.50 out of my daily lunch allowance to purchase this item. Should make for good reading on my lunchless lunchbreak. TIA.

    This is a time in history that no one is willing to take resposibility for their own actions. The big guy is always to blame for mishaps. McDonalds gets sued for not warning an old lady that the coffee is hot. A bicycle manufacture gets sued for not warning the consumer that bicycle are not meant to be ridden at night and doing so without lights are dangerous. A local paper recently had a letter to the editor that explained that after her german shepard got injured after being struck by a bicyclist that it was chasing and that the vet explained that german shepards are prone to hip injuries. She claimed that the breeder is responsible for not warning her of potential hip problems. When do we begin taking responsibility for our own actions?

    I suspect that the dealer misunderstood the requirements or was plain ignorant of the towing needs of this couple. I'm sure that we have all met some pretty ignorant salespeople. I believe that dodge is likely re-writing thier towing specs to clarify specificly what is allowed and what is not. I suspect that ford and gm will follow shortly. Some one else is bound to smell some easy money.

    and sold them the wrong product for the job, but 80 million?? That's just absurd. They should have bought the truck back, lawyers fees, loss on business, but I highly doubt 80 million - probably not even 1 million. Yeah, they screwed up, but lets be realistic here. And there should be some common sense by the owners. I really don't care either way, but how many 80 million dollar lawsuits can Ford, DC, Toyota, or anybody handle?? Is it DC fault or the selling dealer?? And why so much?? With so many sue happy people before you know it all these companies will be going out of business or raising their prices to cover these silly lawsuits...

    The Tundra hitch is a class 4 hitch.

    Hey "prof" (LOL) - Changing your identity because someone is stalking your email is not an "Ideological reason".

    An example of an ideological reason is refusing a hamburger because you are a vegetarian.

    I don't care if you don't want to tell what your "ideological reason" is. (if you even know what ideological means).

    What did you accomplish? The stalker still has your old email address. You should have just not published your new one. No need to change your identity(other than "ideological reasons".

    If you wanted to change identities - why not "werking1"?

    Now here comes the part where the chevy pack - Obyone, Redsilverado, Mgdvhman, and Ryanbab come to BCO's rescue. It is only natural for a pack to try to defend their "runt"

    Redsilverado - "Shoot fire! My truck is bigger than yours. Yeehaw!"

    MGDvhman - "ditto. Get me another beer"

    Obyone - "I'm defending BCO because I want to be one of the pack"

    Ryanbabs - "I don't understand"

    I believe I had posted in the Tundra guys favor when f150rules was bashing the Tundra...but that was awhile ago so I didn't expect you to remember....lastly, bco can handle his own...
  • obyoneobyone Posts: 8,054
    besides cutting and pasting....you're into fortune telling....ROTFLMFAO!!!
  • obyoneobyone Posts: 8,054
    anybody remember where or in what topic or who posted it? Come on, I'm putting up my $2.50 at least tell me what topic number.
  • ryanbabryanbab Posts: 7,240
    what? i dont get it.

    Hey im not the clueless one buddy. You are. He did it for another reason too but you wouldnt understand. Why try to explain things to someone who thinks they know it all

    You gotta admit that Bama played the 4 mouseARADOteers like a fiddle. LOL!! All but one responded within a few hours as he thought would happen. Too predictable!!!

    I like Ryans response the best. Paraphrased; "Leave him alone you big bully, he had his reasons. Now leave me alone while I put more stickers on my truck."

    Sorry Ryan, I couldn't resist.


    Bring on Goldburg!!!
  • obyoneobyone Posts: 8,054
    I think my average is better than bama's...I'm 1 for 1....LOL!!!

    BTW, Bama and Rwell is one and the same.... just to let you know....remember I was the first with f150rules....

    How's the dodge doing?
  • Help me out. Your posted link is to a site using frames, so you can't get me to the page you were looking at. (I don't mean to drag this out, but I really am curious about what Dodge is saying today.) The only thing I could find there on towing was the sentence "Properly equipped Ram diesels can tow up to 14,300 pounds."

    Now clicking on the "Fact Sheets" choice took me to a page with nothing really on it at all except a link to "Worldwide Facilities." So, I'm still lost. How did you get to there posted towing specs, rassom1?
  • bcobco Posts: 756
    man, i wish i had all the answers like you do. tell me now, oh wise one. is your real name "bamatundra"? no? it's not "John Bamatundra"? hmmm. well then, tell me this, how come you don't have your real name listed in your profile? or...why don't you sign off with your real name? basically the same reason why i changed mine. NOT because you're afraid some jack___ would send you an email. because if you're like me, you're listed in the phone book. which means that anyone out there can look up your name and get your home address and phone number. something i never thought in a million years would matter. until i got a message on my answering machine one evening. ok? can you let go of the flippin name change now? i mean, was it YOU? did YOU call me and leave the message? is that what you're trying to draw out of me? this ain't hamburgers at a vegetarian joint bama...it's someone calling and leaving unpleasantries on your answering machine for either you or your wife to listen to. so how about not posting your real name online so folks can't harass you? is that idealogical enough for you? got it now? so...yes...changing my screen name to bco does prevent people from learning more about me, as long as folks like you would stop referring to me by my last name. or is that too much to ask?

    i've said it before, i'll say it again...let it freakin' go...

  • What? You mean there are dealers out there that would actually deceive you into buying one of their vehicles. Man, what is the world coming to? As far as comparing the towing capacities of the Dodge and Tundra. Why not just get the chevy HD with the 8.1 or the duramax. They are rated at over 15,000. I think that solves that problem. OK, I'm sorry, only 12,000 if using a ball hitch. By the way, I've got a friend with 2 Dodge chassis cabs 1 tons with the cummins and 5 speed. He'll tow his bobcat with them, but when he needs to tow his backhow or bulldozer, he uses his F750 dump truck. I was really suprised that he won't tow the backhoe with the dodge's. I'll ask him next time how much the backhoe and trailer weigh.
  • ryanbabryanbab Posts: 7,240
    About a wk ago i seen a dodge dakota (old style) towing a bobcat. The rear on this thing was riding pretty low to the ground

    Ryan
  • So what's it going to take to find a duramax with a 6 speed? I sure would like to drive one before I order.
  • ryanbabryanbab Posts: 7,240
    LUCK
  • Yea, I guess you got that right. I'm not really in all that much of a hurry to buy, will probably wait at least a year. However I would like to drive the thing so I can at least either forget about the diesel or crave it all the more. Kind of hard to tell just reading about it.

  • Need to know a good price on a 2001 Tundra 4WD
    Access Cab LTD with these options
    AB,BB,CK,EJ,LA,N1,OF, V3. The dealer is telling
    me his cost is $30,109 although i researched it at
    $ 29,128. He says there are advertising and
    financing costs that are making his cost more. Is
    that true? He wants $31,000 for the truck. Any
    info would be a great help. thanks, Pescador1

    recommend you visit www.tundrasolutions.com and pose your question there. that site is made up almost exclusively of tundra owners who will be able to give you much better and more detailed advice than you will receive here.

    another good site for pricing out vehicles yourself is www.carwizard.com it allows you to "build" your own vehicle and compare dealer cost to invoice. that's what i used when negotiating the price for my new silverado.

    settlement one argument with two statements:

    1. yes, dodge (whether it was the dealer or corporate - prob'ly a little of both) screwed up when it came to handling of that issue.

    2. no, a tundra cannot out-tow a dodge one ton.

    incidentally, i do not care why you don't post your real name, etc on this site. my point is this: i began posting here with the naive assumption that what happens in this forum stays in this forum.

    when that changed and someone pursued it outside (in REAL life, if you will) i changed my mind about how available i wanted to make my identity. i suppose i didn't realize how personal some folks here take things. personally, i can't imagine anyone saying anything to me in this forum that would make me want to pursue them off-line and do something about it. apparently, some take it much more seriously than i. i didn't (and still don't) see a reason to stop posting when a simple name change could protect me. now, if i could only get others to show the smallest bit of respect for that and stop posting my name, things would be just fine.

    I will try to guide you to the twoing specs on the Dailmer Chrysler web site.
    First get on the URL I posted.
    Next click on "2001 Product Information".
    Next Page click on "Dodge Brand Information".
    Next page scroll down to Ram Pickup then click on "Specifications".
    Next page scroll to the end and then click on "More 2001 Dodge Ram Specifications"
    This next page will have all the towing specs.

    Hope this helps.

    I'll give you the credit for f150 but remember who called out dbhull??? Talk about predictable!!!I don't think that guy could go for more then a few posts before the "Zbad" comes out. LOL!!!
  • modvptnlmodvptnl Posts: 1,352
    Almost forgot, the Dodge is getting a new tranny today. They ordered a couple extra this time for next month's visit.

    Dude, don't take this personal but the red/oby oby/red posts on Tim's site are sort of making you two look gay. I don't think Tim's gonna stand for that much longer. LMAO!!!!
