    For the same price i can get a duramax, i would rather i think. Although I do really like the new raptors. I would enjoy driving one.

    Hey guys. Quick question. Just flushed my diff. Backed outta the garage and shut the truck off. Sounded like it was winding down for 3 to 4 seconds. I imagine that's because I emptied the diff and transfer case, and the oil has to move through all the parts again??

    Raptor is a lot more truck even though it is a bit more expensive.

    Winding down? What do you mean? Should just shutoff like normal.

    In theory. But won't know until you drive both. I bet the Chevy is better.

    Ya. It's just a lot more audible. More than before I flushed it. I filled both until I was able to stick my finger in the fill hole and feel oil. Just a bit worried.

    Crisis averted. I think it was just the oil moving through everything. Sound is gone. I'll post some pics of my handy work in a bit.

    Yup. plus it is unrealistic to one day buy the Ford. I wouldn't buy the Chevy no matter what. But that's more ethics than products.

    @BabyTaco & @joshipps what lens are you using with you a6k? I'm making the move to the 6300 soon and thinking of just getting it with the kit 16-50 for a while and getting the 18-105 at some point since i like having 100mm to play with. Any insight you guys have on lenses since you've been using the E-mount for a while? MuchasGarcias in advance :D

    So I guess if anyone want's my 6D, it's up for grabs :cool: Putting it up on classifieds soon but thought id check in here if anyone wants it. TW nice price of course with a bunch of extras.

    I used the Sony 50mm (1.8, I think) and Sigma 19mm the most. Great buy for portrait and landscape but sounds like you aren't a prime guy. I am picking up a water proof case for mine and retiring it to a field camera. Looking at moving to a different system for wildlife photography. I was on the edge of getting the 18-105 for a long time.

    I'm interested in the canon.

    I've pretty much just copied Gage and bought the Sigma 19mm f2.8 right off the bat. Picked up the 50mm f1.8 as well and those are all I have currently.

    I like the primes for the low f stops, but often wish I had just a basic kit zoom lens for truck outings and piddling around in the mountains. You might consider picking up an adapter if you've got a lens you already like in your Canon arsenal.

    A900 is a DSLR. We're fancy and shoot mirrorless :poking:

    The new l5p's are monsters. 445hp & 910 ft/lbs and the comfort of a Cadillac would be a pleasant daily driver.
