Re: Why has AEV turned to such shit?

Howdy, just out of curiosity... How much effect on articulation does the 4 leaf-1 ton helper springs have? I currently tow a max of 7700 LBs but with gear and stuff in the truck I'm probably pushing the weight limit a bit. The helper springs would be a great addition if they don't hose the off road...

Re: Any Ordering Advice

Well, I ordered mine on April 1st & took delivery on November 30th. The build date says 11/07, but it is an 08'. I bet it is exactly what you said: they are waiting for something on "National Backorder". That is another one of those modern day phrase's that just should not exist. I mean really, they...

Re: Pennzoil Ultra Platinum rebate (for guys with the 6.4l)

No, you weren't. Amsoil is a GREAT product. It was an inherent problem with those GM engines---NOT the oil. It is stories "like that" that do the damage to a brand. I have used Amsoil myself, with no issues. Many people BLAME "oil-x", if it will take blame off the Manufacturer---even though there is...

Re: Pennzoil Ultra Platinum rebate (for guys with the 6.4l)

Fact: There is no shortage of people to give good or bad reviews on just about everything. Dealers have a zillion ways to void any lifetime warranty. My lifetime powertrain warranty states it has to be brought in every 5 years & inspected for fluid leaks. Failure to do so voids the warranty. Also st...

When I actually make them up for the 4Runner & the Power Wagon, I will use the ARB threaded socket plug & hard mount them. I will post...

Re: Why has AEV turned to such shit?

Most are pretty single minded thinking when it comes to a Power Wagon. I can't tell you how many times other campers have said to me "if your gonna tow-why on earth would you buy a Power Wagon?" It has "way less towing capacity." My simple answer was always: "does your truck have full skidplating, a...

Re: Battery talk.

Yeah, my favorite charger is my dumb charger. I can charge, trickle charge, shock charge (on the 60 amp setting,to help desulfate the plates), and I can purposely overcharge (to get a battery to hold it's required voltage). A smart charger usually will only do that so long-before it kicks into maint...

Re: The Future of Ram- 2019 Spy Shots

I'm not digging it either, really is a lazy design aesthetic. All they've done is retool the front fascia of the truck. There are no other major design changes outside the rear bumper and those tail lights. Very disappointing. Also the retooling makes the truck feel like a smaller midsize. Am I the...
