Re: 2018 Transmission Failure

stock gears and 37’s is extremely hard on trans fluid and clutch packs if you drive aggressively, which I think he probably does. Resetting tire size in the pcm doesn’t really change that fact. again, 37s just went on 1k or so miles ago. your going to tell me 37s caused a failure in a month or so o...

Re: 2018 Transmission Failure

There’s no real way for them to even tell you have an upgraded torque converter or billet valvebody without tearing down your transmission, and why would anyone ever do that in the first place if it’s the engine needing warranty work? A built transmission is really a non issue. If you have an afterm...

Re: Unsolicited Advice on Tires

I have 37” bias iroks on a 1 ton swapped Jeep TJ. I do drive it on the road some, but I wouldn’t want to daily drive it. I’ve heard the radials are a lot friendlier but no first hand experience with them. FWIW the bias iroks are ridiculously loud and flat spot if they sit for a while, but they’re mo...

Re: Torq's Build - 2017 RAM Power Wagon (Nickname Undecided)

Really like your build, keep it going sir! Just a word of warning on the hitchgate, it’s a solid product but if you get going too fast down rough roads with a heavy spare on there, you’re going to damage your bedsides where it attaches

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. It was a result of a few things working together. The sidewall itself is not "softer." The sidewall on the x13.5 is very durable/thick. The...

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

I believe it’s a rebranded Donaldson top spin prefilter. If that’s the case, it’s actually completely legit. Those things centrifugally eject dust very well and cut wat down on filter maintenance. I have a Donaldson on a big cat 7.2 and that thing doubled my filter life

Re: Trans cooler bypass valve delete?

I believe they added the thermostat mostly to help meet more stringent CAFE regulations. Cooler fluid is thicker and more viscous. Getting the transmission to temperature as fast as possible wastes as little fuel as possible.

Re: Aluminum Driveshaft failures?

It’s all about end use I think. I stuck with Aluminium because I likes the go fast and don’t want a heavier driveshaft. If I were a Moab guy like mikekey I’d probably have steel. If I went steel I’d also install the slip yoke eliminator I have sitting on the shelf. Options are good. Rear driveshafts...

Re: Aluminum Driveshaft failures?

There’s a shop local to me that does heavy duty aluminum shafts, it dwarfs the oem one in my truck. Much much stronger and thicker higher quality material. Pics in my build thread somewhere. Personally I prefer the shaft to be the sacrificial part in the rear driveline equation, that’s much easier t...
