 Ford F150 CNG_____________________________________

_DSC1897Ford introduced the F150 for 2014 with a CNG option, betting more companies and some consumers will buy a truck that burns American fuel and could be the future of having the US oil independent.  Besides making T. Boone Pickens happy, more short haul truck fleets are converting to LNG (liquid natural gas) especially at ports like in California.

The cleaner burning CNG is 90% methane. You know methane if drive by a diary or feedlot or go to a chili cookoff. WM (Waste Management) harvests methane from garbage dumps. If you look on top, you’ll see the round tanks on some of WM’s garbage trucks. More info……

 Popup Hitch_____________________________________

I visited PopUp’s head quarters in Chanute Kansas this spring. Kansas, like Iowa is known for making farm machinery. PopUp Industries is in the part of Kansas, where generations of welders understand quality metal working. I first heard of PopUp because of their SB1 shortbed coupler. With shortbed trucks, now the most popular configuration, I hear from folks every week emailing me that they just crunched the cab…More…

 Stable Boy RV Horse Hauler___________________________

StableBoyramp Stable Boy Aluminum Modular Horse Stalls for your RV Toy Hauler: When toy haulers first appeared, I knew they would be big. You can haul ATV’s, motorcycles, snowmobiles and golf carts. RV’s have less trouble with police and the questions of being commercial or civilian. So why not use a RV toy hauler to haul horses. Imagine a 5th wheel RV, walking up to the bedroom, stand around the bed, open the closet and dresser drawers and you’re still standing up. Now think about the gooseneck of your horse trailer   The full story…

 Signature Quarters_______________________________

Signature Quarters is known for luxury in Living Quarters, like you’d expect in a model home. Beauty and style in your home away from home.

Along with beauty, Signature Quarters custom cabinets are all hardwood made for the abuse of the long road. The full story…

Ram EcoDiesel 28-MPG_______________________________

2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel

The EcoDiesel-powered 2014 Ram 1500 has earned a 28-mpg rating from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the best highway-cycle test result ever achieved by a full-size, half-ton pickup.

It also exceeds the EPA highway rating for the top-ranked small pickup. The breakthrough results mean Ram keeps the half-ton fuel-economy record set last year by the 2013 Ram 1500. Equipped with a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 gasoline engine, the truck earned 25 mpg highway, a rating that stands for model-year 2014. The Ram 1500 now owns the half-ton pickup segment’s top two spots in the EPA’s 2014 highway fuel-economy rankings.

It will actually steer the trailer left and right to keep the trailer towing straight.  If you have a sudden gust of wind, get cut off on a freeway or have your trailer load shift, Tuson Sway Control will keep the trailer towing straight. The module automaticly reads how worn your trailer brakes are and how big your trailer is and uses your trailer brakes accordingly.  More….
 DirecLink Trailer Brakes__________________________
Finally ABS brakes for trailers ! DirecLink, Fast, smooth and safer than any brake system we’ve tried. We took our test trailer to the race track, smoked the brakes, burnt the seals and proved how dramatically superior hydraulic disc rotors, electric-hydraulic actuators, ABS modules and a trailer brake controller that networks with your trucks computer can be. Electric brake drums didn’t stand a chance in our side by side comparison. A big step toward safer trailering on our crowded highways and unpredictable weather patterns. Share this detailed report about the difference ABS trailer brakes can make.

 EZ-Connector New Truck Install________________________
ezt5EZ-Connector Install on Ford F250: Fun thing about a new truck is adding all the accessories. Of course since I tow trailers, my first accessory was converting the 7 RV plug that came with the truck to an EZ-Connector magnetic plug. I have EZ-Connectors on all my trailers because they always work. Sealed cord, Rare-Earth Neodymium magnet holding the plug for a tight water proof connection. Life time warranty, made in the US, all the right stuff.  See the whole article….

King of Beasts, truck shootout__________________________
The TestsKing of Beasts shootout with Pickuptrucks.com and MrTruck.com. Because of all the turmoil around standardized testing for heavy-duty trucks, we knew it was time to take the two strongest HD pickups on a fact-finding mission to explore their maximum tow capacities and how that translates into the real world. It’s a big review, took over a week and a couple thousand miles. 

eznewTrailer Electronic Technology for Safer, Easier Connection. EZ is a magnetic connection, powerful magnets. Just get the male end near the female plug and “pop” it sucks together. A tab slot align the socket and plug to match the right connections. The male end has two silicone o-rings, the cables have sealant injected inside, all to make the system water proof. If you can keep the water out, you can keep the mud and all the corrosive chemicals used to dissolve ice on the highway out. Spent my share of nights with a flashlight in my mouth in the rain as I work on trailer lights. See the review….

 Ram 2014 mega changes_____________________________

ram13hd60Ram finally got serious about the truck race in 2013 with one innovation after another with a diesel in the Grand Cherokee, 4 corner air suspension on the 1500 and eight speed auto, 30k trailer towing in the 3500 and Smart Exhaust Brake, then a few months later for 2014, rear air suspension or coil for the 2500, rear hybrid air suspension for 3500 and the new 6.4L HEMI V-8. Wow, what’s left to improve on trucks? Ram just jumped ahead a decade in 2 years. More…

 C7 Air Ride Hitch________________________________
c732C7 AIR RIDE HITCH: Ever ride in the back of your horse trailer? You know the air bag will make the potholes  and ruts smoother on our broken highways, but it will decrease dramatically the vibration that resonates through the trailer floor to your horses feet. Imagine standing for hours with a floor vibrating under your feet. Then try to jump out of the trailer without falling down and recover from being numb and regain the feeling in your feet. Just starting and stopping with a trailer can be jerky. C7 Air Ride Hitch removes much of the  movement from the trailer, which you can feel in your truck. Doing this review, I drove on severe roads… Read More…
 2013 Ram HD 3500 review____________________________

The 2013 Ram 3500 will change the truck and trailer industry.
The top end trailer size for pickups will go from 20k to 30k capacity quickly. I doesn’t seem that long ago when one ton dually trucks could tow 15,000 lbs, then in 2011 model year it went up to over 22,000 lbs and now Ram is boosting 30,000 lbs for a gooseneck trailer. A big dramatic jump in towing capacity, we new it was coming. In the seventies we called a decked out one ton dually a “Cowboy Kenworth”, now we’re over 1/2 way to the big rigs. CB and an air horn should be options on this Laramie Longhorn. read the review…

 Step Above Ladder__________________________________

Step Above trailer ladder. I’ve said it before, most folks don’t use their hay racks. Mainly because it’s too hard to get to. A big share of factory hay rack ladders don’t cut it. Too narrow, flimsy or just plain scary.

Step Above is a slide-out aluminum ladder that makes the roof of your trailer an easy trip and safe. Having the right angle slanted away from the trailer takes the work out of climbing a ladder just like your step ladder you use around the house. Step Above slides out to the ground, just the right slope for climbing. More…

Cimarron Review___________________________________

 Cimarron Premium Trailer Review, 10 Years to the Top Even in the current recession, Cimarron Trailers is improving, expanding and zeroing in on efficiency. The factory is staying the same size, but putting out 25% more trailers. There is a handful of aluminum trailer manufactures at the top in premium trailers. None surpasses Cimarron current models. The top trailers need smart engineering, custom doors and windows, top components, strong beautiful welds etc. The result is quality uniformity on all trailers from roof to axles. Where else would you build horse trailers, but the heart of More…
