I wonder if the 66 and 68 rfe valvebodys are the same. Can’t really fine custom 66 valve body’s but 68 and 545 ones are all over the place
Rodeoflyer had his transmission rebuilt with one of these, may want to ask him about it

You can get a billet lower valve body that’s supposed to help with pressure bleeding issues and will tighten up shifts

Re: SimonandSimonBeast Build

Sorry you had troubles, but it’s awesome that you’re out there putting the truck through it’s paces and using it as intended. If you have the wherewithal to do so, replacing the leaf springs with either carli or thuren packs will put the axle where it should be to not rub, and you’ll gain some perfo...

Re: dual battery installation suggestions?

Not sure on your generation, but on the third gen you could get the diesel battery box for the opposite side of the engine bay of your truck and bolt it in in place of the hemi air box. An intake system like the vararam solved the lack of air box issues nicely

Re: Jack upgrade

Get yourself a surplus humvee scissor jack of eBay. It’s 3 ton and lifts pretty damn high. You’ll need to do a little tinkering to make it work but it’s a great little unit all together. Cheap too. It uses a round peg to key into the lower control arms on the hummer, so you’ll need to add some kind ...

Re: SimonandSimonBeast Build

Loving the truck sir, just wanted to mention something about the adjustable track bar, at least on the third gens the thuren/carli recommendation for length did not center the front axle. It had to sit to one side at ride height so that the axles spring perch wouldn’t crash into the trackbar bracket...

Nice build you have going sir! I may have missed it, but what are you planning on using the winch for? On my truck and other vehicles I use for working I stay with wire rope because it’s more tolerant of abrasion and heavy use, on vehicles that are more off-road fun oriented I use synthetic because ...

Re: Welding Axle Tubes

I agree with the above about the front axle, I’d only weld the tubes as part of trussing it. As far as the rear goes though, if you’re sincere about a supercharger and 40’s down the line you may want to weld the tubes back there to keep the pumpkin from pointing skyward should the loose nut behind t...

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...

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...

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
