    Apologies to the OP for getting a little off the subject, but we're going through this company for repair parts and the MDS delete software. If your vehicle is still under warranty, I'd shy away from any retro fit. http://www.modernmusclextreme.com/

    Towing with Gas powered truck

    Sent you a PM. The truck the dealer "fixed" is back in our shop, with our one of our fleet techs redoing all the repair work after a little over 5000 miles. The company paid the dealer north of $4000 for the original repair. I attached a couple of pictures of the lifter and what it did to the cam lobe. The bad lifter is the one responsible for shutting down the intake valve when MDS is activated. You can see how the roller in the faulty lifter is collapsed compared to a non-MDS intake lifter. Make no mistake about it, I'm a Ram fan, but if I ever buy another one it will be a 2500/3500 diesel. Just my personal experience. Your mileage may vary.

    I think CRUSTY's implying....."You da man" It doesn't matter what's around his neck. Whatever it is, he hunted it down, killed it, skinned it, sewed it into the cloak, cooked the meat and served it up to his loyal subjects. Just a guess. I won't admit to watching the show either.

    2012 Ram Power Wagon 5.7 Hemi w/ 4:56 gears. It tows OK, but nothing to write home about. Tows a roughly 6000 lb. boat fine or a 26' enclosed w/ sand car or 1700 ish lb. X-3 kinda OK too. Mileage is under 10mpg towing......maybe 8. My work truck is a 2014 Ram Power Wagon w/ a 6.4 Hemi and 3:73 gearing. Big difference in ride quality when Ram updated the suspension in 2014 (much better). Noticeable difference in power between the two with the 6.4 being much more responsive in every day driving. But, we're talking different transmissions and gearing too. But, you know, the 5.7 Hemi V8 is no slouch either. I'll give you this warning before you spend money on a Hemi with Chrysler's MDS (Multi-displacement System). Two of the three 2014 6.4's our organization bought have $hit the bed because of the MDS system. I have pictures, and it ain't pretty. One was at the dealer three months and is going down again after less than 10,000 miles. The Phoenix area dealer's repair was so bad that our fleet mechanics will be doing the work themselves on the current one (second of the three to implode), and mine, if it goes bad too. They've actually sourced parts and an MDS delete from an east coast Hemi specialties company. We're probably done with the 6.4 Power Wagons after buying 11 of them. The previous 2008 5.7 Hemi Power Wagons w/o MDS were great trucks and brought decent prices at auctions even though they all were approaching 200,000 miles.

    Weird things you see at work or anywhere else

    Those two geese have their ducks in a row. They put my wife's brother and his wife to shame when it comes to being parents. Their TWO kids run around the place flailing their arms, screaming like their hair is on fire while both "adult" parents sit on the couch, checking their phones and tablets, oblivious to the fact that their kids are acting like untrained chimps. And that comparison, really, is an insult to all chimps.

    FORD DIESEL MECHANIC

    That's actually in Catalina, north of Tucson but closer to Phoenix/Peoria. What's your buddy's name and how well do you know his diesel tech? I'm wondering because the shop's not far from me and I'm looking for someone I can trust with a CAT C9 and a 7.3 peestroke. Who should I say recommended his shop?

    Boondocking 1 night in back of my truck in Phoenix

    It is a little bit closer to L.A. Maybe it's just the overflow.
  15. Thanks for sharing. The ammo you listed seems legit with good defensive ballistics. I like the idea of flash suppressed powder.......+1. 10mm = B(freekin)OOM. You make a head shot with the 10mm, the bad guy won't even hear it. (might see some of the muzzle flash though) It's good to have a plan. As with all of Underwood Ammo™ rounds, we utilize flash suppressed powder so that your vision will not be compromised if it becomes necessary to use your firearm in low light.
