Re: Yellowranger1's Blue Wagon

Can't wait to get these shiny shocks dirty! If all goes well, we're going to try and hit the road this weekend! On road, the feel is very similar to stock, but the harshness of cracks in the road or expansion joints is gone. On my way home yesterday, I deliberately hit this BIG dip by home (big as ...

Re: Yellowranger1's Blue Wagon

Nice upgrades, did you have the adjusters added to help with rear squat/sag when loaded or something else? Time to take those Kings through some paces out in the desert!

Back in the old DT days. It was recommended that we use the OEM tranny filters instead of the aftermarket filters. The aftermarket filters had a number of different issues. Guess this never never got fixed over the years.
x2 common issue, only use Mopar filters.

Re: Diesel PW Build Thread

Worked a little on the kings today. Just the rear. Pulled them and changed the compression valving a bit. Trying to make it softer over the frost heaves. Still not quite good but defiantly an improvement. When I get bored I'll pull them again and make minor changes. These body down resi setups are ...

Re: Oil help?!

I looked up the specs in the owners manual and is says 0w-40 for all conditions. Don't assume that the 0w is just for cold weather it could be required for other reasons if it was my engine I would stick with a name brand 0w-40 synthetic.

Re: Winch works 5 seconds or less

So it was the plug, specifically the ground wire in the plug. I replaced it with a new one, made sure every connection was sparkly clean and removed the LVI and the thermal overload. It's almost like a normal Warn now. I also put in an Odyssey extreme battery, so hopefully now I am good. I know I h...

Thanks Coder. I give up today. It is cold and I am losing patience. I will try to work on it this weekend when it warms up. FYI, you don't have to remove the bumper to drop the winch. I removed the side rollers and upper roller on the fairlead and used an extension on the 4 bolts. Everything else c...

Re: Winch works 5 seconds or less

The winch is out now, cleaned the contacts. Hooked it to the battery and it worked fine. Unhooked battery, bolted cover on, retested, no work. Bypassed LVI, bypassed thermal, no work. Each relay in the control pack gets power to the small wires, but still won't work. I am thinking the control plug,...

Battery is at least 2 years old. I bought the truck January 2016, it was in it. Should have enough juice for a no load wind up.

I already bypassed the thermal cutout, so I think it might be the low voltage interrupt, but I'm not sure.
x2 on the low voltage interrupt how old is your battery?

Re: clicking sound..balljoints?

As others have said clicking is often the sound of failing u-joints it could be the joints on front axle or front driveshaft. You can't always tell if they're bad by checking for play/movement they could be dried out and binding inside . Another possibility is play in the control arm or trackbar bus...

Re: Coil bucket/shock mounts mod

- I think the weight is the primary difference, ideally, the shock valving should be designed to work in conjunction with a specific set of springs. Carli uses different Hemi and diesel springs, Thuren uses diesel springs for everything. Whoa, wait, Thuren's website lists Hemi & Diesel springs sepa...

Re: Coil bucket/shock mounts mod

If you swap to his springs, isn't the only difference between the Hemi and the CTD the weight? If so, shouldn't the lighter valving be adequate? Especially with the pig of a winch (M15) up front on the PW? Edit: Does torque application affect valving? Just trying to work through this in my mind. I ...
