Before a Flood
Avoid building in a floodplain. Construct barriers (levees, beams, floodwalls) to stop floodwater from entering your home. Seal walls in basements with waterproofing compounds to avoid seepage. If a flood is likely in your area, listen to the radio or television for information. Know the difference between a flood watch and a flood warning. A watch means flooding is possible. A warning meansflooding is occurring or will occur soon.
Ram has confirmed that the Ram 3500 pickup still has a 30,000-pound towing capacity when tested under SAE?s J2807 standards.
Ford, which has, until now, avoided the SAE standard, is now saying that its claim of 31,200 pounds for the F-450 pickup also meets the standard, even when the 150 pounds of ?customer-deletable? items, like the spare tire, jack and center console, are added back in.
This answers questions about towing capacities but fails to answer the question of who is best in Class 3 towing, because the F-450?s credentials as a direct competitor to the…

of its future, and it's about as far from its origins as it can be.
recent press release stated, "With the purification of the brand and
consolidation with SRT, Dodge is getting back to its performance roots
with every single model it offers."
When Dodge gained its
"performance roots" is a matter of opinion; the early Dodges were slow,
even by the standards of the day, but sturdy and relatively safe. The
