Re: antenna mounts for rambox?

Roof will give you better performance than hood/bed/etc mounts. Better ground plane, better take-off angles, etc etc etc. NMO/Hole-in-the-roof ....

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...

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.

Re: 05 sway bar link recommendations

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...

Re: Torque Wrench

I'm in the "Go cheap and take care of it" camp. Torque wrenches aren't rocket science. The HFT ones I have (1/4, 3/8, 1/2") have all cal'd good-enough for engines/accessories. Biggest thing for bolt patterns is repeatability - that all fasteners are torqued close to each other. They don't all have t...

Re: PW stalls after refueling

Sounds fuel pumpy to me. Could be evap, or a gas cap issue. On dirtmobiles, there's a check valve (usually just a wiggle-ball sorta deal) in the cap, if that sticks/gums up then the tank will create a vacuum and the bike stalls when it can't get fuel. Pop the gas cap, if you hear a suction sound it ...
