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...

I made up a quick, temporary wire loom for hooking up the ARB fridge in any vehicle, on a moments notice, using a dedicated (super heavy but still portable) battery. 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...

So, today, it is back in the maintain mode on the Cabela's Pro Mariner 20 x 2 charger & it is only readong 13.06 volts !

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: Why has AEV turned to such shit?

We are a niche group. I think we can all agree that there are MANY MORE reg Ram 2500/3500's & CTD 2500/3500's sold than there are Power Wagons. Majority seems to get the aftermarket stuff first. We are an afterthought. There have been a few people that mixed & matched all different parts & ended up ...
