Re: 2018 PW Leak behind Front Axle

Anybody heard about people having much trouble with the cad in these new trucks? I haven't had any trouble with them (so far). A little pop once in a while that makes me cringe. Pretty sure that from the shift collar not being fully engaged. Usually happens when I pull 4H going up the mountain thro...

Re: 2018 Transmission Failure

I wasn't impressed with the 66RFE in my 16. Had the solenoid pack changed twice. Traded it on a 19 with the ZF. Completely different animal.

Surprisingly, the 545RFE in the 07 chugs right along.

Re: 2018 PW Leak behind Front Axle

i would of thought the seal was inboard of the cad but maybe not. while i do have a service manual, ive never needed to look at the front axle pages. ram couldnt be stupid enough to not have some kind of replacable paper or oring seal. then again, the dummies made the thermo housing with no replaca...

Re: Sliders and active tune mass module

Is it safe to assume my 2018 does not have the active tune module? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I believe they were added in 19. You can just crawl under the truck and look to be sure. They are pretty much located on the outside of the frame under the front seats. Look like a plastic quart ca...

Re: 2018 PW Leak behind Front Axle

why didnt you determine what kind of fluid it was ? seems easy enough. diagnosing a leak is the same regardless of vehicle type hard to tell from the photo. could be coolant or maybe engine oil from above. i dont believe theres supposed to be gear oil near the cad so if its gear oil you have a inne...

Re: 2018 PW Leak behind Front Axle

CAD. (Axle disconnect) I've never had one leak there. I don't think it's even supposed to have diff fluid in that section. Been a while, but I always thought it was dry.

Try to buckle the seat belt. Autopark makes me want to kick a lawyer into a shark tank, but that would be cruel to the sharks.

Re: Sliders and active tune mass module

I'd guess the sliders themselves are resonating and amplifying that vibration due to the fact that they are mounted to the frame and stick out a few feet from that mounting point. Maybe you can get the dealer to shut the AMMs off.

The AMMs are the reason I haven't put them on my 19 yet.

Re: Do you keep your rain sense wipers on all the time?

I never use that feature in my 19, so IDK how they work. But I could do without a bunch of the tech the cram into these trucks though. I read somewhere that the wiper speed setting on the stalk = sensitivity, so try leaving it on the slowest setting and see if that helps. (may or may not be true). I...

Re: Tow/Haul Mode in the Back Country

That would've been just the ticket for coming down out of the Henry mountains into hanksville. Any idea how it works? Does it modulate brakes, shifting, etc.? It just uses the ABS. It's too slow for coming down the mountain at my cabin. 7-8 mph is about the sweet spot for that, so I never use it.

Re: Drove away from an Accident

Damn,that really sucks on a new vehicle.

Hard to say about the check engine light. The active shutters behind the grill could be damaged though.

I'd go for a diminished value claim with the insurance and trade it as soon as it got out of the body shop.

Does the 2019 power wagon still have the electric fan and mechanical fan for the cooling system? Thanks
Beats me. It's almost impossible to see the front of the radiator through the grill and active shutters on the 19.

I can't see an electric fan, but that doesn't mean there isn't one.

Thanks.

Do they look ballooned? Tread wearing evenly across the tire? Any rubbing?

35X12.50R17LT on a 19? These are ATZ P3s.

By the looks of the specs on the Mickey Thompson site it seems 8.5 in is the minimum.

Re: Facebook Group & Forum - Tire Popularity Poll

I hated bfg’s until I saw video. They’ve won me over from here on out. I've probably gone through 6-7 sets of the BFG ATs (old and new version) over the years. They're good in the snow and have strong sidewalls. Pretty much worthless in mud and wear fairly fast on a PW. I always started to look for...

Re: Facebook Group & Forum - Tire Popularity Poll

Sell the duratracs while they are new. You would be roughly half way to a new set of tires. I'd sell them if I knew someone that wanted them, but I don't have time to deal with craigslist idiots or the likes. Only home two weeks a month. Best thing to do with them would be to find a big green brush...

I don't facebook.

I put Micky Thompson ATZ P3s on the 16. I liked them a lot. Now I have a new 19 and am back to the Duracraps that came with it. Going to get another set of the ATZs when my wallet recovers from buying the new truck.

Re: Adding a front camera to a 2019?

It's not a Tradesman or an 18. I've got the sticker in front of me. And it has LED lights.


Seems the 360 cam view is buried in the towing technology group (which this doesn't have).

No, I guess it would be the classic/standard PW trim or some such. It's got some add on package the dealer ordered but nowhere near the top trim.
