Re: 2019 build and price, kinda

Do you have a VIN number yet? What’s the 10th digit, K or L?

Re: No lights in the Locker Knob.

I’m working on building a locker bypass that will power and use the factory dash knob without a functional sway bar. If I’m successful you can return the unit you already have and I’ll retrofit it with the new wires and components required free of charge. I should know more by the end of next week.

Re: Not your typical TIPM/battery drain issue...

If you have aftermarket accessories that aren't properly tied into the truck it can cause the cabin compartment node (CCN) not to go to sleep with the key off. I had the same problem when I installed an aftermarket auto dimming rear view mirror, until I corrected my wiring error. If that's not the c...

A New Low Point For Gender Identity

Lately I've noticed as I buy electrical supplies that the manufacturing companies are starting to refer to terminals and connectors with different terminology. Instead of referring to them as "male" or "female", now they're referring to them as a "plug" or a "socket". I can only assume that this is ...

Many thanks for taking the time to do this, Retired! I did this to my 07 Tacoma and it was F’ing A! I have a scheduled build date of March 11 for a 19 Tradesman PW (Dial transmission shift and push-button lockers). Is the wiring for the new ones largely the same as the 17-18s and would your unit in...

Re: Locker Bypass / Locker Engagement question

Even if you think there's no load on the system and you're driving perfectly straight, there might be tire wear and pressure differences that effect the overall circumference of the tires causing differential action in the gears. The manufacturer puts a 3 MPH engagement nanny on the system for a rea...

Re: No lights in the Locker Knob.

Well.........this didn't last long. The lights went out again. The dealer traced the problem back to the smartbar. There is no power coming out. Dealer wants $1,200 for a new bar. Anyone has a good place to get one. Isn't your truck covered by a lifetime warranty? If they try to tell you that the w...

Perfect Thanks Retired!!
Is #1 pin labeled "12 volt positive" and #4 is labeled "12 volt negative?" Just want to double check.
Correct!
Also, for testing the front actuator, it’s the same wire orientation, but you only have to jack up one wheel to test it.

Re: Frustrated with 2012 PW design flaws and repeated fixes

Lift the rear wheels off the ground, apply power and ground to pin #1 and #4 of the axle plug. If the wheels turn with power off and don’t turn with power applied, then your actuator is good. http://forum.powerwagonregistry.org/download/file.php?id=14399&mode=view If the evap filter or ESIM isn’t wo...

Sorry to hear that you're having these problems. :( #2 Happens on other HD trucks as well (especially Chevy/GMC). #3 & 4 A locker bypass will make this better than new for $450, or you can return it for a full refund if you're not satisfied. #5 I would clean the evap filter and replace the ESIM for ...

Any expierence with using the pullpal? I’d like to have some kind of Anchor really, I’d rather have too much equipment being by myself.
I haven't needed it yet, but I wouldn't go solo without it. Even in a group it would come in handy providing an anchor point where none exists.
