I’ve enjoyed making my own “American” cheese with sodium citrate. Goes great on burgers. ...

re: Which full sized truck brand to get? - ruger35
Ram, it will blow the 20 year old GM interior out of the water. There were a lot of issues with the early GM 10 speeds as well, seems as though they may have gotten the kinks worked out. Another positive if you tow a lot is that you can get the Ram with a 31 gallon tank. Technology and cameras o...

re: Which F150 engine? - ruger35
After talking to dealers from San Antonio to Mobile, one thing I’ve noticed is most of the XLT sports don’t actually come with the towing package. Just the class IV hitch, which Ford says it doesn’t warranty past either 5 or 7k lbs towing if you don’t ha e one of the “towing packages.” I was able to...

re: Which F150 engine? - ruger35
Had a 2011 5.0 I put 100k miles on pulling a lot of firewood and wet stumps around with no issues. Last week bought a 21 F150 and went back with the 5.0 again. They bumped up the power a little for the 21s to beat the Hemi numbers. ...

re: Westside lunch(Brusly/Plaquemine) - ruger35
I’ve never understood the love for Fat Daddy’s my entire life. Go to Riverside by the ferry. Grab some boudin and sausage while you’re there. Not sure if the new restaurant at The Island is open for lunch but it’s supposedly just like the Grapevine. ...

re: Ram hemi - ruger35
The only Ford option the hemi is more powerful than is the 2.7 in hp only I believe. The 5.0 and 3.5 both edge it out. Just got a new 21 F150 with the 5.0 and enjoying it so far. If you’re considering keeping it long term another cost factor is the recommendation from Ram to run 89. And yes, they d...

re: Ram hemi - ruger35
With the 5.7 in the tundra going away the 5.7 Hemi is now the oldest engine in the class I believe. It’s falling behind, but is still a great engine. Only main issue was the lifters recently. ...

re: Chevy/GMC 2.7L turbo; 4.3L V6; 5.3LV8 - ruger35
If you’re stuck on GM they will be totally redesigning the interior for the 22 models. The 3.0L Duramax seems nice, but you’re stuck with a puny 24 gallon tank and the oil pump requires the transmission to be dropped in order to service. If their 2.7 is anything like the 2.7 ecoboost I have only hea...

re: Ford F-150 Turbo V-6 - ruger35
Early ecoboost engines were solely direct injection I believe and it led to carbon buildup on the back of the valves. Catch cans may help, but google carbon buildup ecoboost and you’ll see it’s across any platform the ecoboost was used in including Lincoln. I think it was around ‘15 when they incorp...

re: 3rd gen Ram Ecodiesel - ruger35
[quote]During my research I found that the Ford is the worst. The GM and Ram are much better choices over all. The GM is the fastest and is 1 mpg better than the Ram for towing and regular driving.[/quote] I agree 100% on Ford being the worst. I think that is why they are waiting until the end of...

re: 3rd gen Ram Ecodiesel - ruger35
[quote]It is hard to make up for the cost premium of a diesel in a half ton, heck I'd get gas in a 2500 if I went that big. I had a diesel, it was a PITA with DEF, gassers parked at the only diesel pump, diesel actually costing more than gas. I'll stick to gas unless for some reason I decide to star...

re: 3rd gen Ram Ecodiesel - ruger35
I may look at the ‘21 F-150s, but this will be the first year for the 5.0 to have cylinder deactivation so I don’t trust that. The 3.5 is good, but the Fords are third on my list as far as what I like. ...

3rd gen Ram Ecodiesel - ruger35
Any of you guys have any experience with the Ram Ecodiesel? I know starting in ‘20 was their third generation of the engine with a lot of new/redesigned components. Mainly interested in it as I thought my driving would decrease but I am still averaging around 2500 miles a month. Currently have a 202...

re: Tomahawk Tuesdays - ruger35
For the poster complaining about having 5-6 ounces of A5 wagyu, that meat is so rich you wouldn’t want to eat that much but probably definitely not more than that. I’ve only cooked A5 once and I didn’t eat half the steak. ...
