Re: Rock Sliders For '05 PW?

Spoke with White Knuckle this afternoon. They are willing to look at the truck and see if their mounts can be modified to work around my battery mounts. They are about 100 miles away, so will be a couple weeks before I can get over there. If they can do it, they'll need the truck in their shop for f...

Rock Sliders For '05 PW?

Have some new damage to the passenger side of my '05 Quad Cab Short Bed, and I managed to bend my N-Fab drop steps. May be repairable, but probably not, and I can't buy just one from N-Fab. So may be time for a set of sliders. Called Aluminess and they are so busy with production stuff that they won...

Re: 3G front tow hitch

I just put an ICI Magnum winch bumper on the front of my Tundra. ICI offers a front receiver that bolts onto the bumper where the roller/fairlead would go, so eliminates ability to use winch and receiver at the same time on that particular bumper. With the PW hidden mount, that shouldn't be a problem.

Re: A/C Vacuum Leak? Blend Doors?

Got some highway drive time yesterday thru the Lucerne Valley, saw ambients from 102-111. A/C on recirc took a while to cool down at the vents but eventually settled in mid-high 40s at the vents. Pulling long hills or passing kicked vent temps up to 50+, but temp dropped back quickly when I got off ...

This is an upgrade from a 1982 Chevy k30.

Re: A/C Vacuum Leak? Blend Doors?

Drove the PW yesterday with new transducer and compressor and it was much better, but ambient was only low 90s. Heading out thru the Lucerne Valley tomorrow and it should be a lot hotter. Good news is that vent temps only varied a few degrees under engine load. Bad news is that A/C is not blowing as...

Re: A/C Vacuum Leak? Blend Doors?

I can't imagine you're too happy resorting to throwing dollars at it until it gives in. Not happy about it but resigned to it. I have too much money in this truck to give up on it, and I like the truck too much. I have even thought about skipping the factory A/C setup and installing a retro A/C fro...

Re: A/C Vacuum Leak? Blend Doors?

My memory tells me the door motors are electric. Your memory is correct. Figured that out yesterday, so have eliminated vacuum leak in blend doors as a possible cause. As of yesterday, my PW has a new Mopar A/C compressor and a new pressure transducer. Have not had it at highway speeds yet, but at ...

Re: A/C Vacuum Leak? Blend Doors?

when you get hard in the pedal going up hill the change in manifold pressure caused the vent doors to close then they would open when you let off the pedal. When this occurred, did the air volume at the dash vents change? When mine blows hot, I get the same volume of air but it's at a higher temper...

The grab handle bushings are available from Geno's Garage, but they don't work on "new production" grab handles, so I didn't order them. I thought ordering a new handle (SRT-10 version with gauge pod for my trans temp) would get me "new production", but when I picked up the part at the dealer it loo...

Update is that the PW went into the shop yesterday for its annual physical, and to get it ready for the smog test. It's also getting a new pressure transducer and a new A/C compressor because I'm tired of screwing with it. System will be evacuated and flushed, condenser should be flow tested (could ...

Well I thought they would be kinda easy to find... so I started looking the other day and sure as shit, they are like finding hens teeth.
That's because the '05s are best of breed. It's all about the panty hook.

Re: PW Emissions

Call Dennis Dillon Dodge/Ram in Idaho. They were selling PWs to CA buyers in '05, so they should know. Attached pic is the emissions sticker from my '05, purchased around 8/05. Looks like it was CA-specific at that time. The '05s may be old enough that you could still register a 49-state truck in CA...

A/C Vacuum Leak? Blend Doors?

My '05 A/C is still not working right in hot weather. Problem started last August, and persists today. Basically, when the engine is under load (passing, climbing a hill, merging into traffic, etc.), the A/C starts blowing hot. Get into the throttle long enough and the A/C will blow hotter than outs...

PW vs Raptor Video

From Edmunds, sponsored link on FordAuthority.com. Still interesting, though. These guys say to new PW will lock both diffs in 4W-Hi. Is that correct?

Re: Summer Gas

I try to run ethanol-free in my small engines, and needed a couple gallons a few weeks ago for the roto-tiller. Local price is $22/gallon in 1-gallon cans. It's cheaper in fivers but they were sold out. Nearest non-ethanol pump gas I could find was about 140 miles away. Around here (So Cal), 87 octa...

Re: Go Rhino Bumper

Looks decent, but I had not seen it, probably because they don't don't offer bumpers for my 2005 PW. I'm still looking for the right rear bumper for the PW and front bumper for 2008 Tundra. Leaning toward ICI Magnum for the Toy.

Thanks. Mine was full in September and the shop even topped off the slight amount that bled off when they tested the pressures. So I'm still befuddled.
