  1. People are amazing! I remember that happening. We were trying to help on the FB page as well. I think a family member ended up helping them in the end.
  2. Right now we are 1,400 plus members and of them 1,305 are active on the page in ether making post, commenting or liking what is being said. The average post and comments have been running in the neighborhood of 20,000 a month and everyone of them are read by the admins and moderators and you would think that we would have a lot of controversy but we don't. We have only had two post that were reported in the past 11 months both being made by a former member.
  3. I would also like to relate this story from the HDT's Facebook page. When we first started we had a member who's truck broke down while traveling to their camp hosting gig. With in 5 hours we had members from all over the US coming together. One member drove 4 hours to work on their truck when the problem was not one easy to repair another member drove from MO to MN and picked up the family and their RV and towed it FL for them. The other members came together and paid not only for the fuel needed to move them but also to have their truck towed to another members home who is a diesel mechanic.
  4. We don't let it get out of hand though and like any place else if you get abusive to others you will be deleted.
  5. The reason I started the HDT's Facebook page was for the ease of posting pictures and videos. I like some of the Escapees members thought that most of those that used a HDT as a tow vehicle were members of this small group but man we were wrong. We have found that there are 1,000s of us out there with all types of rigs and many more looking to make the change. We do regular surveys on the page and as of a month ago we have a little over 1,000 members that already use a HDT and we have helped 15 make the conversion in the past 11 months since the page started. We do not allow the page to get off topic very far nor to we allow political or religious comments. Like this forum every post and comment is read by the admins and mods and we delete post that we feel do not apply to heart of the page. We also have a HDT's for sale page that's attached for buying and selling trucks and related items. We have many from this forum that are on the page as a matter of fact everone of the 17 HDT's that are sitting at Deerrun right now or page members and 6 or 7 of those coming this year found out about the ECR from the FB Page.
  6. Roger I'll take the blame. You should not have gone back and driven it.
  7. The links are old. Pm me and I will email you pics of the truck. The color is called fire red.

  9. 79 to 21 is a good route we travel it all the time. 21 to 290 right into Austin very little traffic if any.
  10. I have reduced the price of our HDT to 112,000. This is a 2016 with 106,000 miles and is setup to carry a smart.

    Bobtail mileage

    DD15, DT12 trans, 3:08 diffs towing 68-72 8.4mpg bobtail 70-72 11.5-12.5 depending on winds and hills. The best mpg towing 9.3 bobtailing 13 mpg.
  12. I try and use the adaptive cruise as much as possible it keeps us a safe distance away and adjust automatically when a vehicle fills in the gap. The best part is it uses the standard brakes to slow or stop you so the brake lights are activated.
