Re: Acceleration lag?

Is that something new they did? My 16 seems fine as far as that goes.

Re: Summer Gas

Straight gas is a rare find anymore. It seem to vary quite a bit by location. It's common near my place in WV. Usually 87 or 92, but the station near me has a sticker that says 89.5, which is good for the 6.4. You can check this link for stations that sell it in your area. https://www.pure-gas.org/...

Re: Summer Gas

I started running 90 octane Ethanol free in my truck when I'm at my place in WV. I stop and fill my generator and chainsaw gas cans there every trip, so I said why not? Costs more, but the mileage gain offsets some of that. Plus it's the closest station, so that shaves about 15 miles off a trip if I...

Re: New problem electrical 2018 PW

Random 4wd shift in progress on my 16 was the T-case shifter position switch.

I had that stuff with the traction control when it was new and they just re-initialized the ABS module. Never happened again.

Re: Axle Seals worn frequently?

None of mine have ever leaked. Front pinion shaft seal on the 07 has though. As posted above, check the vents first.

If the sealing surface of the shaft is damaged, it's going to continue to leak. Speedi-Sleeve if that's the case.

Does it still have the column shifter on that trim package?
Not if it has the 8 speed trans, which Im sure it does.
Well that sucks. One more piece of crap computer controlled failure point added for no reason at all.

Re: Electric sway bar (smartbar) disconnect. Electric bypass

Good luck. I bought an 05 new and it taught me to never buy a year one model of anything. The lockers/smartbar would fault every time the truck got wet and they never could fix it. They worked on it on and off for two years. They made some of my payments and ended up giving me extra cash on a new 07...

Re: 2013+ truck steering nut recall?

I checked for the recall on my 16 on the owner site. It does say they will weld it. I'm not letting those retards weld on my steering gear, so it's not going in.

Re: Steering Pop and Vibration

Make sure your trackbar is TIGHT on both ends. If that doesn’t fix it I’d be looking st a front u-joint gone bad. The rear LSD in these trucks does not make noise or lock up and there is no LSD in the front. It is a gear type in the rear. While they are a Torsen type, all of mine have been a little...

Re: Steering Pop and Vibration

Might be the LSD. They can get a little "skippy" now and then. My 16 has about the same amount of miles on it and I'm not having any of those issues. But I'm on stock size tires. If it was a gen 3 I'd tell you to go right to the front axle joints. But I guess it's still possible you could have a bad...

There is a recall on the solenoid pack. I just had my truck in for several recall's and that was one of them.

I had mine done on the 16 too, but I thought that covered a narrow range of trucks.

Guess the supplier is still having problems with them.

Re: Transmission Problem

Might be linkage on the trans or T-case not fully engaged. The bushing on the T-case linkage in the newer trucks can be a problem as they are soft and don't have a retainer clip.

If it's just some cosmetic BS I'm not going to get worked up about trading. Not a big fan of all that plastic. It always fades/chalks with age....always.

Same crap tires. That's at least a $1200 loss right there to throw them away and replace with something with a sidewall.

I'd just let the dealer chart the oil use like they want to and see where it goes from there.

Dump the CAD.

Ability to kill all traction control in 4WD.

Bring back 4:56 gearing.

Redesign the front of the truck to give better off road vision. The 3G trucks were much better with regards to this. Won't happen though.

Get rid of the Duracraps.
