would i want a 2500 vs a 1500 what are the real differences bigger heavier pieces frame axles suspension which translates into more payload/towing capacity and less busted stuff. in the case of a 4x4 it also means a solid front axle vs. independent front suspension. .

if maxs brainpower is a dimension then one half of it would be twice as much as all of it since its a negative number. ya think must not or youd know max is right. ya know what the silly part of this is budd yea that you act like you actually have a clue. in simple geometry there are right triangles. if you stuff a right triangle inside a rectangle representing the cylinder in such a way that the hypotenuse doesnt touch the side of the rectangle and the upright of the triangle is the centerline of the rectangle and then you move only the point at the top of the hypotenuse and vertical side while extending the rectangle to match the height of the triangle does that make the base wider nope. so if the top point stays on the centerline of the rectangle and the base stays the same size will the hypotenuse ever be parallel to the outer side of the rectangle nope. once again you make bs assumptions. the base of the triangle could be twice the width of the rectangle and only extend a short distance into the rectangle. since the base of the rectangle does not move if you extend the triangle farther into the rectangle the hypotenuse will evenually hit the side. so will the rod ever interfere with the cylinder nope. only with your limited conditions which are not real world. and anyone that knows engines knows that machining the cylinder skirt is usually because the crank or the big end of the rod or rod bolts not the beam as terrabone thinks wont clear the skirt. usually does not mean always now does it. -- if at first you dont succeed youre not cut out for skydiving .

carolina watercraft works inc. wrote makes me glad i chose a 1500. what i fought with my insurance company was them charging me about $120 more a year going from an 02 gmc sierra club cab short box to an 03 dodge quad cab short box. the dodge only weighs a few pounds more than the gmc both are v8s course the dodge is a hemi and the gmc was a 4.8l and yet they charged me more. when i asked the jerk on the other end why he came back with some crap about how much more damage the dodge would do. i told him if i hit him with the gmc then the dodge he wouldnt know the difference except for the hemi sound g. he went into a tirade about how these big trucks hurt the little honda civics. i asked him how far his civic would tow my 7000 lb trailer. justa lota sputters on his end. hd in ny yeah i think they like to use the weight argument at least until you have one of those lightweight little sports cars! then they have a whole new book of reasons why they must charge you more for insurance! -tim .

there must be more than one spec. available on the 2500s suspension. or the tires were really different. now ya have it. different tires maybe a heavier spring option if they still offer one. hell 10psi in the tires will firm up the ride. remember it is a truck not a car. roy .

actually i have priced it out and there are guys here in my area that have done the differential swap and they get 4 mpg more. as for why not get the different ratio rear end your towing capacity will be lower. -- laszlo almasi carolina watercraft works inc. 2810-5d yonkers road raleigh nc 27604 loballeng@mindspring.com with the 1500 your mileage will be better but as soon as you add a trailer itll shoot down. one option for you would be to get the 2500 with the manual tranny and replace the differential/s with the gear ratio of the 1500 which you can get at the parts counter. your mileage should increase about 4/gal but will decrease when pulling a trailer like the 1500 does. the 1500 and 2500 both come with close to the same ratios available. why not just get the ratio you want in the 2500 have you priced the parts and labor to change over you can buy a heck of alot of gas for that price. i really doubt if it would make 4 mpg difference anyway maybe 2 if you are lucky. denny .

the 1500 has torsion springs the 2500 has a much heavier coil spring and that translates to a stiffer ride next thing that will effect your ride are the tires off road tires give a rougher ride the street 20s provide a very smooth ride the rear end with posi will also be a little rougher than the stock the ride will very depending on your package test drive them all the price is rite ad wrote bdk wrote says... snip i own the 2500 dumbasss try riding in a 2003 and then kiss my ass. rsfcking ford owner fer sure. did you read my post dumbass i own a 2003 1500 ram! bdk i own neither but i like the ride of the 2500 better then the 1500. i currently drive an expedition jeep cherokee and a chevy blazer. i say the 03 2500 rides the best. what it comes down to is personal preference. btw ive driven a lexus ls400 many times as my parents own one and its ride is to smooth for me. .

well tom. heres where your self-proclaimed mechanical knowledge lets you down again. lol you whine and cry that you are always attacked and here you are again attacking someone else and are as usual wrong again. you should be the last person to talk about self-proclaimed mechanical knowledge being that you dont even understand the physics of an internal combustion engine with your intake and exhaust gasses moving at the same speed. the out-of-round wear in the slant sixes including the 170 and 198 engines is within accepted industry standards. in most cases ive found its always well below the industry standards even in excessive mileage units. please show me exactly where i said that it wasnt. perhaps you should follow and understand the actual discussion before jumping in with one of your desperate attempts to prove me wrong. someone mentioned that v shaped engines would wear out of round and that it was possibly due to gravity and i said that gravity had nothing to do with it. your buddy max then jumped in and said that the 225 wore out of round to the lower wall and that the forces were acting on the upper wall. this was of course incorrect. the combustion stroke wears against the lower wall like you would know anything about combustion. the reason is as mentioned the pin offset in the slant six reduces sidewall wear as well as reduces piston slap. . . but you didnt allow for that in commentaries on the leaning tower of power. because it is not relevant to the discussion. the forces act in the direction that they act and while the pin offset may reduce them to some degree it cannot eliminate them so why bring it up at all. the only reason that i can see it to help mask a lack of knowledge and ... oh never mind. you just stuck you foot in your mouth and went right on chewing. actually budd that would be you as usual. if you were not so desperate to show me up or prove me wrong that you actually thought about what you are saying you would probably be doing it a lot less. add to that the pull of gravity since the engine leans to the right is pulling the piston away from the side with the loading from combustion. wrong. the rotation of the engine indicates that during the combustion stroke the big end of the connecting rod is swinging to the high cylinder wall which puts the load on the lower wall. the added force of gravity is so much less that it can be considered nonexistent. tell us again how many hundreds of slant sixes youve overhauled tom. well try not to laugh too hard. another statement of ignorance from the master. does someone need to rebuild hundreds of them to understand the basic principles and forces acting on them how many hundreds did you rebuild how many hundreds of them did its designer rebuild you claim to have so much knowledge but dont even understand the principles of combustion so you should be the last one to talk. -- if at first you dont succeed youre not cut out for skydiving tbone wrote this is what you use whenever you are unable to respond. i cannot find it if it is not there and it isnt. if you are referring to your previous post about the compression and exhaust strokes i already demonstrated that the combustion stroke applies more force than the other three combined and since it applies force to the lower cylinder wall that is the reason for the 225 wear pattern and not gravity or the angle of the cylinder. since you didnt respond to that you have admitted your error. i see you are done here once again. i can tell you are done when you start calling people pinhead claiming posts dont exist calling people liars and use denial of facts rather than proof as a defense. if you ever met your own standards for proof youd surprise everyone including yourself. hey roy did anyone take odds when max would pull the standard maneuver of accusing the other person of being done while actually being the one to bail out. .
