Re: So, about the new Jeep Wrangler...

The 2.0l turbo is a hybrid and uses an electric motor and 48 volt battery pack to get you off the line until the gas motor takes over. Seems like a good concept for city driving but the batery pack hangs down pretty far underneath and seems like it woukd hang up on rocks and other off road obstacles.

Re: Rear dif issue?

I think the stock shafts with Spicer joints are a great combo. They’re very tough. I think I paid $35 per joint when I did mine? With 180,000 miles on them and one joint still good I think that’s a solid part to keep. Thats good to know, because as much as I would like to have the RCVs, its hard to...

Check your front axle u-joints.
Checked those and the drive shafts as well, they all appear to be in good shape with no signs of failure.

Rear dif issue?

I have started noticing what can best be described as a binding or popping feeling coming from the rear of the truck when turning in 2wd from a stop. It happens just as I let off the brake and start to roll forward with the wheel turned about 3/4 turn either direction. If I don’t let all the way off...

Re: 37's Not Balancing

I feel your pain. When I first got them installed I pulled out of discount and immediately thought something was wrong because of the right hand pull. Went back and had them rotate back to front and left to right with no change. As they have worn the pull has become less noticeable, Thuren’s alignme...

Re: 37's Not Balancing

I have stock size stt pros, no balance issues but mine do pull to the right. It was very noticeable when I first had them installed but not so much now with 27k.

Re: Front Diff Blow Up

The front drive shaft is able to extend and retract to compensate for the slight forward movement of the front axle. Any time you are towing the front end is in a different position than it is at normal ride height. So if the dealer argument was true, anyone who towed or hauled heavy would have fron...

Re: Front Diff Blow Up

Yeah, I think thats exactly what happened. 3 leaks later they finally put some type of sealant in there with the seal and it has been leak free for 20k but I am sure it will leak again and ill have to have it fixed on my dime this time. To the OP, that sounds like a bunch of BS, control arms and spr...

Re: Front Diff Blow Up

There's only one way to properly fix a leaking pinion seal. I suspect Ram doesn't authorize under warranty the proper way. Over tightening the pinion nut can cause the pinion to seize up. Im sure you are right on with that statement. I dont know about the OP but when I told the service guy mine was...

Re: Front Diff Blow Up

I have had my front pinion seal on my 13 replaced 3 times under warranty. Rear leaked once and they replaced that seal but screwed up the rearend in the process so that got replaced under warrnaty as well. Apparently the dealerships have issues fixing things right the first time so it is not unlikel...

Re: 2018 PW Front Bumper

To answer the OP. The only options (that I know of) currently available that are made for the powerwagon and dont require relocating the winch are Kinzer, 775 fab, Aluminess, Thuren and Addictive Desert Designs. A ranch hand can be modified to work with the winch in the stock location.

Ah yes, you said that, I need to pay more attention :doh: You could just have them weld the side pieces to the center section and make the bumper one piece, then your options are limitless.
