So, the guys at Discount have replaced them with a set of Toyo AT2's 285/70-17's. I'll get a photo up when they arrive.
Back to stock size no 35's?

Re: Rear locker working again......replaced!!

Can't remember if the magnets move closer together or farther apart when locker is engaged. It's been a hundred years since I had my cover off last. The sensor moves away from the target magnet when the locker is engaged, so if it's right on the edge of the magnetic field to start with and then thi...

Re: 3g transmission advice

I'll give Randy's a shout I wish there was a capable shop I put a request in at the dealership to see how much they would charge to rebuild it if I supplied all the parts Doesn't hurt to ask the dealer but they usually only do a swap with an already rebuilt factory unit and send yours back as a cor...

Re: Quick question on tire pressures

If you have stock tires I would run at factory recommended pressure while towing what does it say on your door sticker?

If you don't like anything OEM you can call the tire manufacture and they can provide the load carrying capacity and corresponding tire pressure range for your tires.

A word of caution, NEVER use anything metal(shackle, hook, etc.) to connect winch line/rope together.
What are you supposed to use then? If you use a damper or two not sure why this is a problem please advise.

Re: Air actuated lockers on the PW?

I have the locker bypass on my 3 Gen and it works about the same as before 5-10 seconds per axle though it randomly takes a little longer. The 3 Gen locker bypass simply tricks the computer into reading the transfer case position sensor is in 4Low that's all. I'm not sure if the 4 Gen bypass in more...

Re: Air actuated lockers on the PW?

Locker bypass is the best thing you can do to these trucks outside of disabling the abs when offroad. My 15 was never super fast to lock, but it wasn't super slow. The bypass locks near instantly. If the below is correct they didn't lock any faster the light just came on as soon as you turned the s...

Shit, if you’re going to spend 3k you can get a factory new transmission

Out the door you'd be looking at about $5500 for a dealer to do the swap so that's almost double.

My understanding is anything larger than 2.5's would be too large to fit through, without hitting, the rear shock holes in the frame has that be addressed somehow?

Hello TommyG,

A 3/4 ton 4x4 that is six years old, those don't seem like unreasonable repairs especially if you 'go off road. If it was me I would replace the other hub they usually fail pairs Rockauto has good prices, SKF makes the Mopar hubs.
