Re: Diff Temp video

IMHO, most people, including me, install these with the hopes of prolonging the life of the rear axle & its internals. I have 3 different temp gauges, so i KNOW that my numbers are not that far off exact. The rear axle in my particular truck may not have been set up to run optimally, as the temp rea...

Re: 2012 Off road rattle

OK, not for nothing, but what am i missing here ? I have had 5 trucks & an old 84 subaru wagon, all with transfer cases. One truck had 325,000 miles on it. Never, ever had a t-case issue or problem. Yes, i maintained them by just changing the oil. My current 08' PW has going on 50k miles. And the ma...

Re: Battery talk.

After disconnecting the Odyssey Ultimizer charger & leaving batteries unhooked & alone for 2 days, the Gp 24 Exide wet cell dcycle camper battery dropped to 12.75v & the brand new (ok, 1 year old) X-900 Cabela's battery was reading 13.01v. So, once again maintaining 13.6 volts when unhooked from cha...

Re: Lifted floor jack....

I've actually been thinking of picking up this to keep in the truck. The Hi-Lift is useless for changing a tire with all I have going on now. I looked at the ProEagle, and I like them, but they are nearly 2x the cost of everyone else's aluminum jacks. https://www.jegs.com/images/photos/500/555/555-...

I have 2 of the old style HF 3 ton steel floor jacks & 1 of the new 3 ton aluminum ones i like them all. One of the steel ones is 26 yrs old now, been rebuilt 3x (O-rings & jack oil) & st...

Re: 2018 Power Wagon issues

Can’t say I really care about the truck being gas or diesel. AES makes any RAM diesel into a Prospector so it was an option. What I am having a difficult time with is over all shamefully embarrassing fit to finish, and over all lack of accountability toward failing to manufacture a realizable truck...

Dont think it would go anywhere with e-brake on, or 4Lo 1st gear, providing you work on 1 end at a time.

Here is my experience: I have a Sears Die Hard Platinum Marine (the big ass one). It has been hooked to my underhood battery since new in 2008. Battery was also used for 2 years previous in my old 2004 Ram 2500. It is not isolated, it is hooked directly with 2/0 gauge welding cable with soldered on ...

Re: New motorcycle

I had a 2005 Suzuki DR650SE. Great bike. It paid for itself and the insurance with $$$ to spare, vs driving my trucks. Sold it when i retired.
