  1. They torque limit them in the lower gears to save the transmission. You dont get the full 900 until like 3rd or 4th gear
  2. I heard that there will be some on the road soon.
  3. Unless the Lordstown facility is that out dated, I find it hard to believe it would take two years to retool that plant. It took ford slightly longer than a month to go from building the focus to sending the first test build of the ranger down the assembly line at Michigan Assembly.
  4. Wasn't it GM that said a few years ago when Ford was beating them with high fleet sales that fleet sales "were not a good business strategy"?
  5. The article says axle housings at hagerstown, so I would assume its mack axles.
  6. I'm guessing that thing will easily be in the $20-30,000 range.
  7. Yes, they offer a premium interior with similar leather to the rawhide with wood grain dash inserts and pleated interior panels. Not sure what it is called nowadays though.
  8. Engine location is no different than on an "old" pinnacle.
  9. I guess I dont really understand the financial markets, but I don't understand how a company that is making healthy profits, can be valued so low and have their bond rating lowered. How tesla is valued higher than Ford and GM doesn't make sense either to me, when Tesla makes a fraction of vehicles compared to either company.
  10. Figured I would update this. I got the truck on the road last summer and have been driving it a bunch. I just put in a short throw shifter and make a knob out of an old bull dog my dad had.
  11. The problem isn't just the tariffs on imported materials, the domestic manufacturers are jacking up their prices as well. My uncle is a national sales manager for a large lift gate company and said that the U.S. steel manufacturers jacked up their rates when the tariffs were imposed since they don't have to compete with the lower priced import materials.
  12. They still make some with planetary axles and the simard front suspension. They are pretty much all south american exports though.
  13. You can get dual exhaust, no wood grain trim anymore on the interior.
  14. Thats not 100 % correct. 62T is a tandem with a tag axle ie 2 drive wheels, 6 total wheels. 64T is a tandem with two drive axles ie 4 drive wheels 6 total wheels. The T stands for tractor.
