Re: Interest in a 4 Corners Recovery Group

Vehicles don't go in wilderness (legally).
"Backcountry" is the word you're looking for. Big difference in land use issues.

And I think a helicopter would be the ultimate recovery rig. :lol:

CO4x4RNR is the big one out here that I know of. Should do one of their courses someday.

I've got a small drip in a clearance light.
But yeah, that's one of many reasons I don't want a sunroof.

Re: I still like this truck.

What do you use to 'rough-in' the alignment of the dish to the remote site? Radios have a couple of signal strength LEDs on them. Sweep one direction, till you see where the signal drops, then picks up again, then drops again. That's one of the side lobes. Sweep the other direction, same deal. Find...

Re: 12vdc to 5vdc output hub

Some USB devices need to negotiate with the host/charger for power delivery, so just putting 5V on the lines doesn't work with those devices. Very device-dependent. Samsung phones are really picky about what they'll take power from. My Motorola stuff doesn't care - if there's power there, it'll take...

Get the hitch and trailer's jack far enough from the receiver that the trailer clears the tailgate. Not that big of a deal.

Re: Does the Sway Bar Disconnect ever work?

Mine works great. Shift into 4 (high or low), press the button, light blinks... if it doesn't disengage in a second or two, a wiggle of the steering wheel to unbind things is all it takes.
Lockers are the problematic feature.

Purchased and installed. Of the stores I checked, none had "Power Wagon" in their online catalog - picking 4x4 and looking for the "Sway bar electronic disconnect" option gets you what you're looking for. Moog K750757 got the most relevant results. Napa 265-3286, their "EL905X", is what I got. Looks...
