WOW!
I am surprised at you, than to think you had so little self respect as to engage in that kind of vulgar behavior...!! You should be ashamed of yourself ! I am really surprised that you would stoop so low, in your Bloody Chevy Banter, to lower yourself to such common vulgarity. You should go hide your face.

BUT HERE IS THE REAL TRUTH ON THE ALLISON... As a matter of fact, the F-650 does have a Catepilar engine and Allison Transmission. And I am getting a bit sick of the silly banter pushing things to the extreme as it takes all the fun out of it.. Your bloody Allison is not what it is cracked up to be. In my over a year of Research, 458 Posts on one Forum alone, and I even contacted Transmission shops, while the top engine of all the big 3 is the Cummins, without a doubt; the top Transmission is the Ford 5R100 Transmission NOT YOUR BLOODY ALLISON! Chevy does not rate in the top engine or transmission now. Several Transmission Shops have sent full transmissions and kits out for the Dodges and the Chevrolets, AND NONE FOR THE CURRENT AMERICAN 5R100 Torqueshift Transmission. Three Ford Techies had never even seen one in their Shop. That is the facts.

Now you can carry on all you want, like some kind of a Chevrolet Dealer or something, but you take all the fun out of the Chevy Ford Banter when you cluck on this much.. And this latest stoop to vulgarity on the BOG Forum should have been beneath you.

I am really very much surprised in you, and that a man of your stature would belittle himself to lower to such petty depths. You take the fun out of Chevy Ford Banter.

That vulgar notion expressed there is not new, it has been around for 50 years. Every Right Wing Femi-Nazi Feminist and Leftist Greenie sort asserts all the time, that anyone with a Bullbar, or that drives a Truck, or a motorcycle, or any Four Wheel Drive, is over compensating for lack of personal hardware somewhere.

The notion is tiringly stupid and out of date. Some of us originate as Rig Junkies loving Trucks from the Sandbox days and Tonka Toys so much we even go on to drive trucks or heavy equipment or airplanes and such professionaly. The notion that if you drive a truck or motorcycle it is for compensation for something else, is worn out by the city Leftists about 30 years ago..... The same ones that want all Bull Bars taken off 4x4's now in NSW, again we must only have them cause we are lacking somewhere else. I would like to smack all of them up along side the head.

So, also running around in 6mm plate steel reinforced Bull Bar.?? Yea!! And the Guys that saw me reinforce it, when a thousand kms out west running at night with me in cattle loose in the country we were going through, all filed in behind the Rangers Rig..... They saw how the bar was built ! So much for the City Leftist Notions..

YEA! Trucks in the Bush? Bigger the Better!!! I was refueling the other two trucks on the DVD run in the wild country, with a spare 200 litres in the bed.

Rig Junkie to the core.... Ever since I was three years old with the biggest TONKA in the SANDBOX....!!! Ranger

Wow! Looks like I found a sensitive spot. Should have put a couple of big HaHa's in the post.

I operated an offshore charter boat for nearly 30 years.
Chasing all sorts of fish from bottom feeders to Marlin.

Always worried that I would get bored when I tossed it in for a more sedate lifestyle.

Should'na worried about it.

I get more bites here than I ever did fishin'.

Now calm down Steve and give this some due consideration.

If the Allison tranny is not so good why have Ford chosen to fit it to the new F series Super Trucks behind the Caterpillar engine in favour of their own 5R100 Torqueshift Transmission?
Gotta be a reason for Ford to buy a product from the General.

Seems the Torqueshift only goes behind the smaller motor options.

It is the only thing that fits on the back of the Caterpillar Engine... You must be bored Turist... But I research this stuff all day every day for a lifestyle, you asked for it:

Smaller motor options? The 6.0 PowerStroke is all they have made for the past 3 years. The Brazilian Ford tooling ended in the United States in 2003, and the tooling for the Automatic was left at the 4R100.... ALL ACKNOWLEGE Transmission Shops, AfterMarket Performance Diesel Supply Shops, and Ford Shops, that the 5R100 is vastly superior... "goes behind smaller motor options" your quote? The new 6.0 is a more efficient and higher tech engine with more HP than the 7.3 and outperforms it. They are now releasing a Twin Turbo version of the same engine for even better emissions and fuel economy. High end and Low end Output... Yes, Chevy is a better luxury CAR. Yes, Dodge has the strongest engine if you want to do Tractor Pulls up in the 550 Horsepower. There is only one 551 Dyno Horsepower Ford Running... But almost ALL acknowledge that the Ford is WAY AHEAD in terms of one tough truck and still outsells Chevy and Dodge more than 2 to 1...

Be careful if you try and boost your Duramax, the Allison does NOT take the extra power well. The 5R100 on the other hand is getting 450 HP and up jammed in front of it and is nearly indestructible... Here is the typical answer from a Transmission Parts Supplier that does all Chevy Ford and Dodge:

Quote "If you start adding power to an Allison she going to leave you lol. I run a 165hp (increase) tune in my 6.0L everyday, and I can’t seem to break it. Yes the Allison is known to let the performance minded stranded. We carry all the rebuild parts to make the Allison, 4R100 and the 5R110 bullet proof, plus the Dodge Auto (can’t think of the name on it). We sell mostly Allison and 4R100 trany parts. In fact I don’t think we have sold 5R110 rebuild kits ever!" End Quote...

NOW TURIST, YOU TAKE THE FUN OUT OF THE CHEVY FORD THING BY GETTING MEAN, WHAT ARE YOU JEALOUS??? And you can poke at people, but you should refrain from low class vulgarity like what you posted in the Docs File, as it makes you look small... Me, I don't give a st*** as I am driving home in my F-350 King Ranch.

Graham,
You would get tired climbing up and down out of the Red One.... There is one here, in the Horse Circuit, pulling a 40 Goose Neck Horse Float....

If you have seen my King Ranch F-350, you can get a 550 in the same body style, without having to climb in and out of a Big Rig.... It is too much, just to do 3 times opening a gate and closing behind you.... Gets old quick...

But I have seen a Black one THAT COMES WITH A BABE !!! THE BABES must be an Option.... I know which one would be more EXPENSIVE.... Ha! Ha!

We saw the F650 a couple of weeks ago with the horse float on. Looked like a good set up.

Boy some people get very sensitive about some subjects.

I guess continuing to take the piss out of someone when you KNOW that the subject is sensitive rates up there with "fair go", "dinky di", and "stirring the pot".

Bob, nothing you are doing should surprise anyone - you in your "fair go" way set me up before you ever met me; Brian, you surprise me jumping into this crap.

Probably best to put a cap on this before someone says something regrettable...

I must admit I found it to be well within the rage of car sledging as goes on between Holden and Ford....sort of like what takes place on the cricket field between the Aussies and the Poms...full on sledging on the field...best of mates away from the field.

all the best to all for Xmas and New Year

Gee, I wonder what a qualified psychiatrist would say about a personality that believes:

"This is Australia - Land of stick up ya Mates" be it Holden / Ford / Chev whatever it's all good fun to take the piss out of your friends."

And when you know your "friend" is not finding it funny and instead is getting very upset you continue

"to take the piss out of your friends."

It is a strange definition of friendship that includes sticking in the knife and when your friend says it hurts you keep turning the knife because you think that is funny and when challenged about your actions you hide behind a concept of "taking the piss out of your friends" because lets face it, thats what "dinky di" Australians are taught to do by their "dinky di" fathers who also found it funny to kick someone when they were upset.

Its kinda of like road runner cartoons and Australia's Greatest Home Videos - the more the victim is hurt the funnier some people find the activity.

Personally, I find it sick.

Happy Holidays

Jay

PS: Don't waste your time telling me to lighten up as that is simply a way of avoiding addressing the issue. In this case, when is enough enough?

Better still, ask 10 "qualified psychiatrists". You'd probably get 10 different opinions.

Sounds as though the majority of folk commenting on this post do find it funny!

Lighten up and have a Merry Christmas!

Gee, to take my one line 'humourous" statement and turn it into a five line definition according to yourself about "sticking the knife in when your friend says it hurts anyway" & then blaming parental lessons and finding humour in kicking someone is getting rather extreme.

You don't know me nor do you know anything about my up bringing at all Jay.

I believe there are cultural differences here, regardless lighten up & enjoy your Christmas.

Hello Bushtrackers.
I am a new member here and have never posted before but I have been reading your site for a long time.
Never thought that I had anything to say before now and this message has taken some putting together.

It seems that you have an active committee dedicated to the site and a lot of positive contributors, I have gained a lot of valuable knowledge reading these posts, just wish that I was an owner so that I could read the other messages.

What has prompted me to put this message together is the recent postings by Jay.
I have never met him but from messages I gather that he is an American lawyer moved to this country.

That may well be an explanation for the style of posting that Jay seems to specialise in.
I do not believe that it is a valid excuse for his behaviour or the style of language he has chosen to use in his posts.
Correct me if I am wrong and remember that I am unable to read the owners messages, but has Jay ever made a positive post, one that is designed to give assistance to others, a post that will one day assist another member who may gain from it.

The only posts from Jay that I have seen are inflammatory, seemingly designed to inflame others.
The posts above are a very good example of my point.

Turist has made a quip that has given some offence to Steve. (Got to say, don’t see anything wrong with it, old joke and part of the Chev/Ford debate they been having)
The heat was going out of the situation when in comes Jay and throws a bucket of fuel on the simmering fire.
Why?
A few more members put some water on the fire and cool it off again but guess what?
Jay tosses on more fuel.
Why?

“Taking the piss”, Jay’s words, not mine, a crude description of a type of friendly banter very common between blokes over a beer. (Not guys having a cocktail.)
It is a part of our culture here Jay, wether you like it or not.
What seems to be part of your culture is what can only be called “ bleep stirring”
You seem to be an expert in the art, most times your timing is immaculate, you intercede when not required simply to inflame an issue.
You have made a number of derogatory comments about the lifestyle that we have here.
If you find it so offensive what are you doing here?

And yes, “Dinki Di” and other euphemisms are still used here but you would not appreciate the true meanings. And you probably never will.

And remember, Road Runner is a yank cartoon show and Australia's Greatest Home Video a copy of a second rate yank show, just some more of the crap you lot are pushing on us.

In closing I ask, has the committee power to reprimand a member for posting messages designed to inflame what are otherwise small arguments between members.

Just hate escapees from a second rate lifestyle knocking what we have here.

Nurtzy

Gee, another anti-American anti-lawyer person - so what else is new!

The ONLY thing worth commenting upon in your post:

"“Taking the piss”, Jay’s words, not mine, a crude description of a type of friendly banter very common between blokes over a beer. (Not guys having a cocktail.)
It is a part of our culture here Jay, wether you like it or not. "

I am well aware that "taking the piss" is part of your culture - I am told that quite often when I question people cutting down other people.

Why is it necessary? What does it accomplish to cut someone down, to tease or ridicule, other than to make the speaker feel good about himself?

If you take the time to read the posts objectively, the first post was a shot at cars - however, once it was seen that Steve was upset the posts left the automotive arena and became personal. That is when I decided to speak up.

Who cares about Fords and Chevys? People are all that matter, and if they matter enough then at some point enough is enough!

Wikipedia describes it as follows: Taking the mickey and taking the piss are British slang expressions meaning to tease or ridicule.

I ask again and I wonder if anyone has an appropriate answer: when is enough enough?

Personally, I felt and still believe that the "shots" at Steve went too far. That's my opinion as a human being having nothing to do with being an American Lawyer living in Australia.

Jay
