Re: 2018 Power Wagon issues

Unfortunately, it's industry wide and the flat-rate system doesn't help either. Techs are motivated to move on quickly in order to get to the next paying job before they start losing money. Every manufacturer has lemons and idiosyncrasies. If it hasn't been seen much, the manufacturer can't just hav...

Re: PW Axle n Suspension Swap Question (& Locker Wiring)

I had a similar fleeting thought recently about actually going the other way to a quadcab diesel (just me and the GF and a medium dog), but that wasn't ever offered with the recent radius arms.

Test drove a 17 and a 06 diesel last week. I'll keep the PW.

Re: 2018 Power Wagon issues

Since you mentioned heat. I had a car I dealt with random engine performance issues while I was at Nissan Tech Line. Finally narrowed it down to 1 connector terminal would expand in the heat and lose a secure connection.

But sounds a lot like a module overheating as well.

AEV Pro Cal also does all that without the dealer visit. It's only the Tire Pressure that requires a BCM reset at the dealer.

Re: 37x12.5 on AEV Saltas – metal trimming or liner only (2018)?

:notworthy: Exactly what I'm hoping for! I went with the AEV wheel because they state it will allow fitment of 37s, and they didn't mention cutting being required. Also glad I went with the 12.5 width over the 13.5. The tires are sitting at Discount Tire waiting for me, and the wheels should arrive...

Re: 37x12.5 on AEV Saltas – metal trimming or liner only (2018)?

I think I did about 6" of pinch weld. 37x12.5 Toyo RTs on XD wheels with +18 offset.

Cut a slit and hammer it over flat. Technically it was clearing after cutting the plastic, but it was really really close to the pinch weld, could possibly make contact with bushing flex in the radius arms.

Re: Why the lack of subforums?

My initial hunch is it seems busy and really spread out given the fairly slow traffic that has been the norm as long as I've been around.

I do like splitting up the generations to some extent.

Just missing the RamBox. I got my Tradesman PW from them 2.5 years ago. Definitely best pricing in AZ.

Considered Dennis Dillon in ID as potential pricing was better, just further away.

Re: Winch rope

If I had to do it over again I'd buy a 60' winch line and a 60' extension. 1/2" is completely overkill, the breaking strength of synthetic rope is not the main failure mode, it is abrasion. Agreed. A positive if running about 75% of max capacity allows for uneven spooling. Such as an extended side ...

Who has mounted their cradle directly to their air bag bottom vs mounting the cradle to the axle bump stop pads? What are folks’ opinions on the two different options?
My plan would be on the axle. My feeling is that there is the potential for the assembly to slip sideways if not bolted in.
