I got a laugh out of this thread

I am partial to Dodge's - its paid off
Mopar or No Car

Sad part is I drive a Honda Element (Elephant) for my work vehicle since the company supplies it along with the gas.

I am gonna comment on the Lava cake - make sure it is a Microwave safe dish cause it gets hot - Pamper Chef sells a Microwavable safe dish - Yummy too

the first video was a Ford
the 2nd Video was a Dodge 2006 to 2009 - I could tell by the dash

I know the Dodge's - are usually a bad trac bar

I can see where you made a genuine apples to apples comparision because our trucks are some much like Golfs and 911s So you're saying Ford sells more trucks because they have BETTER salesman I would have thought the other brands would caught on after 34 years and hired some new salesman.

When looking for my first new truck last year....I looked at all three. Previously had GM and a dodge years ago....Really liked the Ford becasue of the Eco....I drive a lot for my job so it seemed logical. Why are there so so so many combos with the fords?? You never knew what you were looking at!! Looked at the Chevy....Needs to be updated. Both Ford and GM were much more money than Dodge. I went Mopar for the cost, everyday ride qulaity, solid workhorse Hemi, 19 Hwy MPG, Best Interior of any make and larger rear legroom. In the end I got the truck optiond the way i wanted at nearly 7k less than the equal GM or Ford. Solid value with a 100K powertrain warranty.

Love my Mopar.....

My wife and I both love Pampered Chef products and yes they are pricey.
Read it somwhere in another forum that the best way to temper the ovens in an RV is to use stoneware such as pizza stone, etc.
We have a jellyroll stoneware pan that fits a toster oven in the TT that we occasionally use, and put it on the metal plate above the burner in our oven. Dang if our biscuits and rolls did come out much better! Tops are moister and bottoms are not all burnt up. Good stuff.

353 horsepower, that's pretty good. Bullydog is usually pretty conservative with thier tunes too.

When have you gotten 12mpg pulling your windjammer? I have a windjammer and a F250 and never gotten that good a milage.

why mess with it when its under warranty ??? You would be asking for trouble if something bad happens to that engine..wait till the warranty is gone ..then go for it..
