Re: Mopar Ignition Coil Redesign

Did you notice a difference after replacing the coils? Yes, I did actually. I felt a slight bump in throttle response, low end torque and MPG, overall the engine feels smoother. I don't know if it was because I replaced coils with a lot if miles on them (even though there were no codes/issues) or t...

Re: Uh, oh!

Not sure how large the diameter of the hole or where it is, could it be drilled and tapped out and put a small bolt with teflon tape on the threads in the hole? This would be a strong, reliable fix.

Re: Part # Verification

I did some searching online and the best I can tell is all 10.5 AAM rear axles with Tru-Lok differentials (only power wagons) use that part but I would take Retired BLM Rig's advise and have a dealer double check.

Mopar Ignition Coil Redesign

After 175k miles I replaced my original 07 ignition coils today with a fresh set of mopar coils and was surprised to see they have been redesigned. They added a small insert presumably to improve electrical current flow between the coil and the spring to the plugs I personally have not seen this on ...

Re: Greetings from a new 2018 Power Wagon owner

Hello, welcome congrats o the new PW you made a great choice. I don't know if I agree that suspension squeaks are normal on a new truck, it would not hurt to have the dealer check it out might be something loose. When my truck was new I had a similar problem turned out the rear shocks needed to be t...

Re: ZR2 diesel test drive & test tow

The ZR2 is a great little truck I can't wait to see some pics, I bet the hardest thing to adjust to will be the small size other than that I think you made a wise choice. Just don't forget to pull that airbag fuse before you go off road!

Re: Front Diff Blow Up

Supposedly the Carli arms "move the front axle 2" forward". Seems that would change some of the geometry in the diff as the attaching driveline distance is now changed - yes/no? Carli arms a 1/2" longer than stock and will not negatively affect the steering geometry. I've had mine on for over 10 ye...

Re: PW stalls after refueling

Don’t fill your gas tank with 35 gallons immediately before needing to drop it out of the truck if you can... Oh that is funny. Has anyone ever had a fuel pump fail when the tank was low? I believe this is in the Murpheys Law Book. I had 1/4 tank of gas in mine when the pump failed and it still was...

Re: Front Diff Blow Up

Have you had a front pinion seal leak fixed in the past if it was not done right it could have caused some premature bearing wear?
If you want an alternative to the dealer for repairs J&S Gear Co. is excellent the shops in Huntington Beach.
