Loving all the new trucks showing up. Starting to see more of them out on the road too.

Re: Tube Bumpers and OEM Winch Positioning

I need to resize these photos. This is the hybrid bumper I’m working on. There’s going to be a lot of small changes and will be a full bull bar option. Mounts to the frame with a 1” laser cut recovery point, leaves winch in stock location and sits so tight that it doesn’t need a second fairlead eve...

Re: Tube Bumpers and OEM Winch Positioning

That's a Rogue Racing bumper. They make one for Ram 2500 with either mesh or the dimple holes. They call them side skins.

Re: Dakar Wheels

I noticed the same things; 8" wide, expensive, and you can bet freight from the east coast is going to be high too. It's a good looking wheel (assuming "EVOCorse" and "Fondmetal" are decals you can peel off), but the 8" width is the real killer for me. This may be the one and only time being in the...

Re: Dakar Wheels

Pretty expensive for low pressure cast. I was surprised that they are not forged too given the classes they are certified for. I don't do anything high speed or too crazy so I doubt I would break them. It is a lot of coin regardless. I spent too many hours at an impressionable age watching World Ra...

Dakar Wheels

Interesting option. Good offset for our trucks and tough as hell. They are salty though. I might stop in there and see them in person the next time I am down that way. Thinking the Matte Bronze might look cool on my blue truck. https://www.mainlineoverland.com/products/evo-corse-dakarzero-17x8-dodge...

Re: Recent Warranty Work

It is a little funny to me how the new truck owners find so many little faults with their trucks. Ten years ago guys had real problems with their trucks. Now, it’s down to almost nothing. These trucks are already at the point of reliability of the old import vehicles, and hugely more capable. Sure ...

Re: Painting rock sliders

If you really wheel hard like I do, even the Line-X won't hold up. You get big chunks taken out. Seen this with a few guys we wheel within Moab last year. If you don't do it that often, and sliding down things, it's a good option. Yeah, just about anything is going to peel off with the full weight ...

Re: Recent Warranty Work

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. I will probably do the other side once it warms up her...

I don't think they want to fix the unit bearing thing. They are too busy selling them. Don't get too worried. They are great trucks. I have appreciated knowing what issues others have had so I try to post if I have an issue. It has only been in once before this one for the exhaust stud issue that th...

I got balance beads when I got my 37s last year. They were fine around town but miserable at highway speed. Vibration and thumping all the time.

Re: Recent Warranty Work

I know. I love this truck and don't mind it right now because I have the extended warranty but I wonder how I will feel when two or three things go at once when I have to foot the bill. I am hoping that most of the gremlins work their way out before I am out of warranty. It happens though. I was a T...

Re: Painting rock sliders

Looks good... which bedliner did you use? Has the bedliner held up? I think it was Line X but I can't remember for sure. It was whatever my buddy used in his shop. I did not shop around for it we just used what he had. I was worried about them getting beat to death on the underside from rocks etc. ...

Recent Warranty Work

2012 with 64,XXX on the odometer Noticed a slow fluid leak on the right side. Was sure I would find an axle seal leaking but it turned out to be a transmission cooling line running past the right side of the motor. Had to be replaced. Glad I noticed before it failed completely and left me sitting. D...

Re: Painting rock sliders

POR-15 will hold up a LOOONG time. I painted the frame on my C3 Corvette with that stuff. It also stayed on my hands for an entire month no matter how much mineral spirits I used. That stuff is nasty. Use gloves if you work with it. If you get it on something, it's never coming off. LOL It is crazy...

Re: Painting rock sliders

We blasted mine then did a couple of coats of POR 15 then finish coated them. They are holding up really well.

Do good prep and use good primer/base coat and you will be happy with the results.

Re: Tire Feedback

Any rubbing/trimming with the tires, TommyG? I have no lift and am running a Thuren track bar and control arms. They do rub the splash guard at the pinch weld in the rear of the wheel well mildly when turning tight or turning with the wheel stuffed. In that third picture where the tire is at full s...
