Re: I’ve ordered the 75th anniversary

Congrats on the order! The 75th anniversary comes with the factory rock-sliders which haven't been available since the 3rd Gen model trucks which is a nice bonus.

Re: AAM ball joints.

I have Dynatrac ball joints in my truck. After about 140k miles I rebuilt them, tops were still tight bottoms were loose. For about $195 you can get the rebuild kit for all four ball joints and do the work without having to remove them from the axle, very pleased with this product.

Re: 2013 5.7 PW running like crap...

Hello Allgonoshow,

I think you might be right about the cam and the lifters being badly worn or damaged unfortunately the only way to know for sure is to remove them and take a look.

Re: 2006 Front Driveshaft Rebuild

So I got the driveshaft out and pressed out all the joints. Found the bad u-joint that had two ends completely dry 😳. Glad it didn't come apart on me. George at 8lug still the place for spicer joints? Anyone have the part numbers? And any insight on what gets rebuilt on the double cardan? Thanks Go...

Re: 2006 Power Wagon ball joint bore

Those large gash marks look strange, perhaps something was wedged in there to get the ball joints out. The small vertical lines indicate knurled ball joints were previously used so you will need to use them again, smooth sided ball joints won't hold. The install should be fine, if the ball joints ar...

Re: New Tires Yokohama X-AT 35's

I was wondering how they were performing and if you had done any significant winter driving in them yet. They look like they would do pretty well in snow and ice eve...

Re: Noticed my 2019 universal joints dont have clips 2019?

My 07 had the same thing with at least some u-joints, it simplifies manufacturing and saves money for parts suppliers. It does not affect longevity but as mentioned rebuilding them is a pain.

Re: Lost all gears while driving, transfer case?

Go the truck back on Saturday. Once they got it apart they found that the seal around the pump was leaking, it had been that way for 2-3 years because it made a very slight whining sound, it finally came out and lost all pressure. At 185k miles with nothing ever done to the transmission since 2007 w...

I had to coast to the side of the road and call a tow truck. I can shift through the gears in both the transmission and transfer case but but not...

Here is an easy way to tell if your fan clutch is working correctly or not: 1) The fan clutch should stop spinning almost immediately when you shut the engine off, if it keep spinning the clutch is worn out. 2) With the engine off you should be able to turn the fan by hand, if not the clutch is lock...
