On my 2015, coming in through the driver side in-floor storage bin. Take the bin out. Run cable through the giant hole in the floor. Reinstall the bin. Easy.

Re: antenna mounts for rambox?

It's just a spring mount for the CB antenna (Alaskans are still mostly using CB, better radios haven't caught on up here). I normally keep it tied down on the highway and in town so I don't do damage in drive-thrus. I've been reading a lot about how mounting behind the cab is really bad. How long i...

Re: Locker Bypass Rebirth

I wonder what safety garbage actually makes locking such a pain. Like what are the conditions and why are they there? I agree you normally wouldnt use lockers until you need them, but by then its too late to engage since you have to be on flat ground, turning in a circle, opening the back door and ...

Re: 06 PW Winch

Greetings all. New to this forum. I recently purchased an 06 Power Wagon. First Dodge I've owned in many years. I bought it to use as a good puller to tow our RV trailer.

Should I?

If you want to test the lockers you have to be in 4 low and moving VERY slowly. Like 2-3 mph, but you have to be moving. Also have to be in 4 low for the sway bar, but not so terribly slow. At least that how it works for Gen4 trucks. 4HI or 4LO for the sway bar. Sometimes have rock the truck side t...

Those look like 1500 springs. I'd return those and get Airlift Airbags 5000 and Daystar Cradles. That way you keep your flex and can airup to tow.

Re: Rear Springs tuftruck ttc-1225

Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate airbags (88289) and Daystar airbag cradles that won’t negatively affect ride quality or suspension range of motion.

Or 1.5” spacers on heavy springs that will ride like a dump truck when unloaded.

I know which one I’d pick.

Low volume parts for 11 year old trucks get obsoleted and existing stock gets used up.
