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.

Rodeoflyer had the same problem not long ago, I believe he installed the delete and is happy with the results. Hopefully he sees this and can elaborate. Unless you live next door to low sky I cannot foresee a problem

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: Wench mount broke

They only discontinue parts that have low sales volume for extended periods. There’s probably very few people breaking the winch cradle and it doesn’t make financial sense to continue producing and stocking a part that no one is buying
