Re: Towing question

Just because you can, does not mean you should. Only you can decide how "well" the truck tows. PW's in general are not on par towing with a reg 2500 because of the soft flexy suspension. It can be made to tow a 100% better though. Air bags or reg 2500 springs are the ticket, as others have stated. I...

Re: Front axle u joint part numbers?

What ever you choose is obviously up to you. But, the reason the factory u-joints (& Moogs) go bad so fast, is because they only have a single seal. The Spicer/Dana ones with the "X" in the part # have 3 little ridges (known as a triple lip seal) in the rubber seal, making dirt & water intrusion muc...

Re: New Jeep seems to actually be improved.......

All Wrangler based Jeeps are convertibles, aren't they ? Just take the doors off, roof off & fold down the front windshield when off-road. Doors should still come off, even if roof don't. Wonder what rear axle will come with that 6500 lb tow rating ?

New Jeep seems to actually be improved.......

Just got the March 2018 issue of P4W&OR magazine. It seems the new Rubicon will have HD-er axles, 100lbs lighter, fully boxed high strength steel frame w/5 cross members & the lockers can be engaged & disengaged on the fly up to 30 mph in 4 Lo. They also put a work-around in the sway bar disconnect....

Re: Blown Bilsteins

Not sure of your budget or plans for the truck, but if you want inexpensive, I put the Rancho 9000XL 9-way adjustable ones on our 04' Dodge 2500. They really worked great & there was a good bit of difference between #1 setting (softest) vs the #9 setting (firmest). We towed a 10,500 lb Toy Hauler wi...

Re: 2017 Wandering/Pulling to Right

I know it's under warranty (& that sucks) but find a HIGHLY rated 4x4 alignment shop, tell them what it is doing & they should be able to take care of it. Then take the bill to the dealer & have a chat. Tell them the problem is now gone & they should foot the bill---as it is not your fault the "spec...

Re: Check this PW out. Found it on FB.

I have been lucky so far with the PW. Had MANY a close calls though. IME, the BEST deterrent is loud knobby tires, period. I had those deer whistles on one of my old trucks. Hit 3 deer in 1.5 yrs AFTER I put them on. Loud tires can be heard a long ways away. Makes deer just stand still & watch you g...

If this would have had dual alt's & the best nav, I would be talking about a trade with the 4Runner. Love that color. Needs bed lined bumpers though. :D

Re: Shell Rotella T6

Yup, I have used it (5w40 full syn) in many of my vehicles. 2004 Corolla from 500 miles to 96k. We sold the car to a friend-now has 186k & running strong. Am currently running it in our 2010 Corolla & the PW. Handy to get the 2.5 gallon jug. No issues.
