Me going up the Ledges at All Wheels
When on a ride with some guys from Maine 4X4 the night before. I did this
line that night and made it. This is the first time I had done this line in
the day light. Its the easiest line there but its I don't have the torque
to do the other line. And don't have any of what I need to the hardest line
Watch the 2015 Ford F-450 6.7L Diesel Super Duty Debut at the State Fair of Texas
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) Ford introduced its 2015 F-Series Super Duty
lineup at the Texas State Fair and the big news is a better Power Stroke V8
turbo diesel engine. They've also beefed
up the F-450 to make it even tougher. The new Power Stroke features a
larger GT37 turbocharger that measures
72.5 millimeters in diameter versus the smaller GT32 it replaces which came
in at 64 millimeters. This means Exhaust gases have a larger surface area to spin
the turbo so you'll get extra power.

► 2015 Ford F-150 Torture Tests
The famous Silver Creek durability course in Romeo, Mich., combines two
extremely rough roads. One section of the route has 15 distinct types of
chuckholes, while the other is made from broken pieces of concrete.
The twist ditch is a set of parallel dirt mounds built to create a
situation in which one front wheel hangs in the air while the opposing rear
wheel leaves the ground repeatedly. Only two small patches of rubber are
left to make contact with a slippery surface and maintain traction.
STONE PECK ALLEY
To test paint for the all-new F-150, engineers drove the truck 150 miles
over gravel roads, then another 150 miles over pellets of extremely jagged
scrap iron that is first passed through a blast furnace. Oversized tires
spray the stones and scrap iron at every surface of the truck.
ENGINE THERMAL SHOCK
F-150 engines are first placed in a special cell and hooked to equipment,
called a dynamometer, which simulates pulling a heavy trailer at full
throttle up a steep grade. Next, thermal shock testing takes engines from
the coldest polar vortex to extreme heat in just seconds.
ROCK AND STOP
Ford performs 500 aggressive starts on a stand specially designed to
torture rear axles. The stand creates impacts at nearly 2,000 lb.-ft. of
torque. This is more torque than the truck is capable of making -- 130
percent more and then some -- just to be certain the rear axle and all of
its parts can withstand the abuse.
Ford engineers dropped 55-gallon drums into the bed of the truck on an
angle, making sure all of the force came down on the sharp rim of the drum.
Engineers in Dearborn, Mich., then measure the impact and make adjustments
until the cargo box floor is suitably tough.
Ford built a special torture rack that violently twists and shakes the
truck seven ways -- simultaneously -- for five days, simulating the
equivalent of 225,000 miles.
Run a half-marathon at Olympic-sprinter speed while carrying a 600-pound
duffel bag in 120-degree temperatures. Then do it 250 more times. That's
the Davis Dam durability route that stretches from just outside Bullhead
City, Ariz., to the top of Union Pass.
The 2015 F-150 is the first high-volume vehicle with a high-strength steel
frame, and body panels made of high-strength, aluminum alloy -- the same
material used to make armor-plated tanks and navy warships. An advantage
aluminum has over steel is that it doesn't produce red rust. So Ford had to
go beyond the usual tests that include driving vehicles through countless
salt baths and soaking them in high-humidity chambers.
POWER HOP HILL
This washboard Ford test track in Romeo was created to replicate a steep,
off-road dirt trail in the Hualapai Mountains of northwest Arizona. The
severe 11 percent grade -- steeper than the final section of most ski jump
ramps -- stresses engine and transmission components when the wheels lose
contact and then return to the surface.

How to load a truck camper onto a pickup truck
Basic overview of how to load a camper onto the back of a pickup truck.
This video is mainly to show beginners a few tips or to just inform those
who are simply curious at how this is done. The camper is an Arctic Fox 811
going onto a 2005 Ford F-350.

Jeepskool - Team Colorado gets rescued
here we are getting a couple of Chevy Colorados out of a trail that they
weren't prepared to be on. The front truck was a lifted 2WD truck with
RIMZ, no hooks and the 2nd truck was a 4wd with bald tires.
Dad's colorado eating up the snow, the heat is on!
well heres the first real test of how good the 4x4 is in dads 2010
colorado, 3.7 inline 5, i missed the clip of him backing out the driveway,
and some other goodies that happened out on our travels, like 4x4s getting
stuck and almost hitting a building, but heres a lil vid of how good it
does in about a foot and a half of snow
