Re: Nitrogen in tires???

If you have an easily corroded substance (bare steel wheels for example) pure, dry N2 may be worthwhile. Of course even liquid N2 isn't pure, and compressed N2 definitely isn't, typically still has some O2 and H20. In a truck tire, you shouldn't notice any difference between CO2 (much cheaper and m...

Re: Nitrogen in tires???

I'm pretty sure that there is no measurable benefit in the Power Wagon using Nitrogen.

I typically only add air to my tires once a year - in December after the outside temp drops below 0 degrees.

AND - since we have TPMS, I never have to check the pressures with a gauge. :cheers:

Re: New forest partol truks

No one wants to buy a new vehicle and have to make warranty trips back to the stealership for issues. No one wants to have to go back for free recalls either. A manufacturers model reputation is everything. Gen 3 Ram trucks have had a bad reputation with shitty front end death wobbles. :doh:

Tell us more about the sound level when you are working the truck hard - like towing a camper etc. Most people have noted a substantial annoying increase in sound level in that situation.

RustyPW - It's 10 years old - It's only a matter of time before you have a RustyPW. The salt is an eventual killer - any rust on the fenders or rockers yet? Better trade while they still make Power Wagons :poke: I guess that's why I opted not to get any type of lifetime warranty - I've never had a v...

Re: Ford's 10 speed auto....

To get what you really want - It would be great to have a 3-speed Transfer case. Swap out the BorgWarner 44-47 to get:

Low Range (what we currently have)
Creeper Gear Highway Range (new TwinStick range :poke: )
High Range (what we currently have)

Re: Ford's 10 speed auto....

So, here is my question: Do you think a 10 speed auto that was geared as follows: 1) 5.69:1 2) 4.69:1 3) 3.69:1 4) 3.0:1 5) 2.69:1 6) 2.0:1 7) 1.69:1 8) 1.0:1 9) 0.85:1 10) 0.67:1 Would get that much worse mpg than these ratio's ? http://news.pickuptrucks.com/2016/09/2017-ford-f-150-features-all-ne...

Re: Balance beads ?

From an engineering perspective, the centramic balancer is only going to correct out of balance conditions in the rotational direction - much like the old time bubble balance machines. Although, it does have an advantage over the bubble balancers in that it can continue to adjust over time. If your ...

Ok, I tried it with just the sensor on the passenger side. It still dosnt work. Oddly enough, though, I did find out that if I swing it into 4wd before the “check anti-lock braking system” light comes on right when the truck is started, the CAD will lock up. But if the light is on, then it wont loc...

Re: Need some math help here...........................

Increasing your drive pulley diameter by 1/2" will require a belt that's about 8/10th of an inch longer. So get one that's an inch longer and use the belt tensioning adjustment to take up the slack.

Re: Need some math help here...........................

Circumference is Pi times diameter. So your belt speed is directly proportional to your drive pulley diameter. If your drive pulley goes from 2.5" diameter to 3.5" diameter, then your impeller speed will go from 1100 rpm to 1540 rpm. If your drive pulley goes from 3" diameter to 4" diameter, then yo...
