This is how bed liner’ed sliders end up looking if you use them as sliders.

Re: 2017/18 Ram recalls

Anchorage CJDR has a bad reputation on the Jeep FB group for their service department killing Jeeps. I've never taken a vehicle to them, but having read other people's accounts, I never will.

Re: 2017/18 Ram recalls

Avoid Anchorage CJDR (by Merrill field) like the plague. I have several recalls I’ve been putting off simply because getting them done is a PITA. If you want to share who you end up taking it to and how your experience goes I’d like to hear it. The Lithia service department has been alright to deal ...

Welcome! How much did the anti-gravity upside down parking mode option cost? Must be new, they didn't have that when I ordered my 2015.

Re: New Power Wagon after 5 years of dreaming

Congrats on the pending new truck. You may find Tradesman shaming on FB or other forums, but there's none of that here. A Power Wagon is a Power Wagon, regardless of trim level. Welcome to the fun!

Re: 2010 Improvements

You can see the bite marks from previous settings, this locked the joints down, cleaning is a must. Leaving a pile of grease in there will let the joints slip and pop and wear things out. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190208/3a2de6a42899dbc1521b7a9289d008b4.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com...

Made me cringe! Who pulls out their pistol and puts their hand over the end of the barrel. I stopped watching there. I carry every day and I wonder if he has ever fired a gun or if his whole act is a gimmick to make money. Someday he will be on one of those videos of "what not to do" when he shoots...

Re: What came with your 2018

Yeah, I didn’t mention the second key because that’s a given. Buy new truck, get two keys.

My truck has keyless enter and go, came with two fobs and two “dumb” keys, so four keys in total.

Re: What came with your 2018

The book you get with the truck is an owner's GUIDE, not manual. The manual is seven or eight hundred pages. You have to download the PDF, it's an easy google to find it. You should have a winch hook (may or may not be attached to the cable, depending on your dealer), winch remote, 2.5" x 2" hitch a...

3/4" shackles for single line pulls

Re: Correct Recovery?

so if I get a higher rated winch extension can I then use it for a double line pull? I really only planned to use the snatch strap for others, wanted to have it on hand. Guess it would be wise though to spend the extra coin and get a rated pull for this truck. I’ve got some barbaric ideas on how to...

Re: Correct Recovery?

You absolutely need a winch anchor. Pull-pal or the tools and materials to make a good old fashioned dead man. Naturally occurring anchors have a funny habit of not being there when you need one. You need to be aware that winching forward isn’t always a good idea, and solo it can be hard to go any d...

Re: New 2005 Power Wagon Owner

Transfer case position sensor is a good place to start looking.

The lockers and sway bar need to know the truck is in 4LO to work, so a faulty TCPS will throw errors and prevent that stuff from working right.

Re: ARB solenoids and reliability/longevity

Just a quick google suggests you’re feeding it higher pressure air than most. Don’t know what the solenoid is rated to, but I found a survey on Pirate asking about ARB locker pressure, and most respondents were 80-100 psi. If you keep having trouble, I’d put a regulator in.
