Re: Fabfour Grumper

I have been trying REALLY HARD to not comment on this thread, but I just can't hold out any longer. WTF-over ? Why would anyone do that to their truck ??? :doh: A proper bumper, with the animal strike hoop/guard---even if it sticks out a little, would keep an animal from destroying the front of truc...

Re: Easy Ideas for Hot Food on the Trail

This subject is only limited by your imagination, appetite & gear. It takes a long time to heat something up in a can on the manifold plus you run the risk of exploding the can. Yup, done that in the Army. If you want compact---hard to beat this combo: https://www.cabelas.com/product/CLASSIC-TRAIL-S...

Re: Diesel PW Build Thread

The beauty of the Dura-Bak is that it has small rubber particles in it, that cushion the stone impacts & you can put as many coats on as you want. Just follow the directions to the letter.

MOST stated hitch weights are on the laughable list. And they are empty, I mean bone empty, nothing, zero, nada- in or on the camper. No propane, batteries, camping gear, water, wood, supplies, food, nothing. Our 2005 Keystone Tail Gator had a 1150lb dry hitch weight, add camping gear, tools, propan...

Re: Bush knife

BEAUTIFUL work.

:idea: You need to make a batch of choppers & etch the "POWER WAGON" logo on it & to get around the "copyright" bullshit, just etch the year of the PW of the people who buy them from you; example: 2008 Power Wagon, for mine. Just a thought, you do great work.

Re: Rear locker working again......replaced!!

Retired BLM rig,

That is awesome info. That should be stickied somewhere.

So, based on your info, my money says that they have replaced MANY rear locker assemblies, needlessly. Costing them PLENTY, because their dealers/service managers/technicians are clueless !!! :doh:

Mine too. I believe it was heat related. Mine happened while towing (when we first got our new-lighter 3500 lb camper). I stay at 65 mph or less now while towing. Going to try the Amsoil SVT Severe Gear 110w next time. I recorded the 315* F reading on rear diff, while towing 10,500 lbs w/about a 150...

You can absolutely align a vehicle with every joint blown and not even know it. I’ve never seen an alignment shop do any test that’s useful in determining if parts are worn.

Re: 37" tires with 4.10 for those who do have

Not sure about the new Gens but 3rd Gen auto trans guys would install a larger trans oil cooler. I did it on our 04' Reg Ram 2500 QC. 12 row to a 24 row. That worked great. If I had an auto, I would do the same. I always think this: Going up Ike Gauntlet on a 100* day...would I overheat ? If the ans...

Re: The Cactus Red mod thread.

Did both have 3 ply sidewalls ? If so, maybe rubber was a softer compound ? Sometimes, a load range "D" tire has the same weight rating (3195 lbs) as load range "E" tire & requires lower air pressure as a result. Tires sure are funny, the way they are rated & constructed, from mfg. to mfg. .
