Re: New Ignition Wires?

The Hemi has coil-on-plug ignition. How would those work? I think those are for a totally different application. I have not heard of the wires wearing out on a Hemi. It isn’t like a distributor system where the wire carries the direct ignition load, in our trucks the wire carries the low voltage pu...

Yup; T-case in neutral and see if there's any slop in the u-joints.

New radiator. Had some issues overheating on long pulls with a trailer, that with the same trailer didn't used to overheat the truck. Also had a coolant smell in the cab...

Re: Cell Booster install

Portable booster is a go. Tripod, adapter plate, pole mount, and antenna. ~90ft of (kinda shitty) RG58, might try a different/better brand with a little more shielding... don't really want to make the jump to LMR400, but it'd help with the cable loss quite a bit. Will give it a go from the mountains...

Re: Cell Booster install

Also worth noting, and it might seem obvious, but - It's not going to "make" service where there isn't anything. It will boost a weak signal into something useable. If you want service where there isn't anything, you'll need IP (Satellite works well; ~$1000 hardware and $100/mo) and a cellular netwo...

Re: Cell Booster install

Testing in the truck this evening I got about 20dB better on voice and 10dB better on 4G. (Measured on the phone's info screen.) Testing in the house earlier I got about 10dB better all around, but the outside antenna was in a real shitty position and had no ground plane. It did help though, and I s...

Cell Booster install

Got tired of shitty coverage in the mountains. Have a booster (older Wilson) in the F550, and it works well. Time to get one in the PW. Mag-mount/NMO antenna up last week. Might drill a hole next summer, for now i'll deal with mag-mount. (If I do drill the roof, i'll probably knock out a hole for UH...

Re: Re-installing a couple of HAM radios

Personally, I'd go for a car stereo amp install kit. They're inexpensive, come with power cable, fuse, short ground cable, terminals, and some other cables/wires for amps.
I have 8AWG to the amp/radio in my pickup, seems to work fine.
