Re: Seat Height and headroom issues.

Hell, I'm 6'2" and headroom is tight. Something about the cabs make them seem smaller. My guess is no aftermarket seat rails, so a custom rail would need to be be fabbed, likely at considerable expense I have found a fab shop by me "FFP Customs Frazier's Fabrication & Performance", but they are bac...

Re: Add me to the Duratrac hate list.

The punctures when not a trashed side wall are always under the fish skin between the tread for some reason. Its strange how other sites like TFL truck think they are great tires.

Re: Ford Tremor

No front locker... just a limited slip. No swaybar disconnect. I think the Ford will appeal to more customers since you can't mention "Powerwagon" without someone mentioning "diesel". It just shows how many people don't get it. Also with Ford and GM coming out with bigger and better gassers I can on...

Re: Engine Oil Temperature

I brought my 3500lb pop-up home today to give it a good cleaning before it gets even hotter outside. Since I had it hooked up I decided to pull it up a pretty steep highway to see how it did. I maintained 65+mph and it was 105° outside. The oil got up to 230° but no higher. I'm pretty happy with tha...

Re: AEV Procal install issue

AEV contacted me and said no factory models have all of the wire ports taken at the OBDII port and some aftermarket alarms/tracking devices plug in between and could be the problem. My truck had this pre-installed so this is likely the issue. Now I need to figure out how to un-install this tracking ...

AEV Procal install issue

20190604_175606.jpg For my 2018 the procal instructions say to "install the 2 terminals of the harness into the OBDII connector according to the labels in cavities 1 and 9." 1 and 9 already contain wires from the factory. No mention of them(much less what to do with them) in the instructions. I fou...

Re: Aluminum Driveshaft failures?

What’s with everyone thinking a steel shaft is going to turn into a pool noodle and make their truck explode? If you hit it in the rocks you’re probably going to slide off something. The likelihood of you dropping the entire rear weight of the truck perfectly on the shaft and blowing up the transfe...

Re: Aluminum Driveshaft failures?

I talked to Adam's. There is a chart and they aren't legally allowed to build a steel shaft over 72" for highway use. They can build a thicker walled aluminum or build a 2 piece steel shaft with double cardans. He also said either would be expensive. I got the impression he will build whatever I wan...

One of the most successful LS Jeep conversion guys is here in Las Vegas(Motech).

Quite a few guys even have to change there R+Ps to a taller ratio afterwards. I realiz...
