Re: Improving fuel mileage

Sounds like a scam. You couldn't get 8 mpg more out of these trucks unless you were having them towed.

Re: Flowmaster 50HD

Avoid it. Have one. Drones between 1500-2000 rpm like there is no tomorrow. Replacing it when the snow melts.

Re: Crappy brakes

My brakes felt really bad the day I picked them up from the dealer (in 2015). I have never had any specific maintenance on them, but they improved dramatically in the first year. Still don't know the reason why they improved. Maybe a TSB of which I was unaware?

Re: AEV Dorkel Pre-Filter, who has one? Functioning?

Well, from personal experience, it ain't going to do anything at normal operating RPM while in dusty conditions, and I drive in that situation every day. But hey if it makes you feel better to have it on, knock your socks off. Post back up when you have it installed and running your engine at 1500-...

AEV snorkel with air-ram or prefilter height

For you guys that have one... how much higher is the top of the air-ram/prefilter than the top of the cab (excluding the running lights). Please specify which one you have. Thanks,

Re: antenna mounts for rambox?

Re: AEV Dorkel Pre-Filter, who has one? Functioning?

You might check out the Donaldson Top Spin instead of the Sy-Klone.

It appears to cover a greater CFM range for the 5" model.

Re: AEV Dorkel Pre-Filter, who has one? Functioning?

Based on the physics involved, I'd still go with the 9005 based on it's listed, and I assume tested, stats. The Sy-Clone website specifically says "Always select model based on engine airflow requirement, then use adaptation for any difference in diameter." The 9001R would result in an effective RPM...

Re: Unsolicited Advice on Tires

The most bad ass off road tires I ever had were Denman Ground Hawgs in 17/40-15 size back in the 80s. They were awesome off road in the mud. They rode surprisingly good on the highway. I was even surprised at how well they did in sand. You could, however, hear them coming from 2 miles down the road,...

Re: AEV Dorkel Pre-Filter, who has one? Functioning?

9005 is too big for both the Cummins and of course the 6.4 It looks like it is the correct one if you use a CFM calculator. https://www.widman.biz/English/Calculators/CFM.html Using 5600 rpm as max rpm (The 2016 PW is rated at 410hp at 5600), and 0.8 efficiency (which is typical for a naturally asp...

Re: AEV Dorkel Pre-Filter, who has one? Functioning?

It is a Sy-Klone model 9005. According to the tech I spoke with at Sy-Klone, that is the size they recommend for a D6 dozer. AEV support was shit, supposedly their engineering dept. says that is the correct size for both the 6.4 and Cummins. BULLSHIT. I'm pissed, and wanted to confirm with others t...

Have you tried the rear locker in 2wd? I heard it has that feature now

The rear locker does indeed lock in 2Hi and 4Hi. Just tested mine.
A step in the right direction.

Re: Cooper or Maxxis?

I’ll agree with pretty much all of jacks observations on 13.5’s but I intentionally run 13.5’s on a less than 10 inch wide wheel because I want the squish. TankerZak you have plenty of shock! No issue there at all. Not sure what valving you have, or how you drive and use your truck, but if you like...

But your saying the 37x13.50R17E had a softer sidewall than the 37x12.50R17D? That literally blows my mind... Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk Not exactly.

Re: Cooper or Maxxis?

Do you think some of your specs could be wrong or that Cooper changed the tires? The 37x12.50R17s seem to be a D 50 PSI tire and the 37x13.50R17 seem to be an E 65 PSI tire. I'm not trying to be picky but I find your feedback very helpful and wanted to clarify. I'm down to three tires at this point...

I'm on my 3rd set of 37" Cooper STT Pros. Nothing but good things to say overall, but there is some variation based on size. I've run these tires year round and found them to perform well overall.
