I carry a Hi Lift for the same reason I carry a fire extinguisher and a first aid kit. The Boy Scout motto is "Be Prepared".

Re: Rear locker working again......replaced!!

So I'm the recipient of Flattire's old locker actuator and I finally had some time to do some testing. I wanted to document my findings here in the hopes that someone else dealing with a flashing locker light in the future would have a baseline of information to deal with that might help lead to a ...

I would start by jacking up the rear axle and testing the ability to lock and unlock, to make sure that nothing is hanging up mechanically inside the rear axle. Then you could inspect and clean the connectors and apply dielectric grease. The next thing would be to clean the small sensor magnets insi...

Re: New guy to the PWR

The sway bar is the final drive control module. Check the 50 pin connector at the sway bar, look for corrosion or broken pins. To release the connector, push the release tab and pivot the cam-lock open.

Re: LED Map Light Burn Out

The part number should be on your existing console somewhere (unless it was a sticker that feel off), pull it down and check it out.

Re: 2013 5.7 PW running like crap...

A broken valve spring can cause these symptoms also, just pull the valve cover and look closely at each coil. You may have to go deeper though.

Re: Abel Components Locker Bypass® $450

Well, it finally happened... I built a Locker Bypass for a Dodge/Ram dealer to fix a 2005 that they couldn't get parts for anymore. I guess they're not worried about voiding the lifetime warranty. :lol:

Re: Only one brake light works.

It's a separate circuit from the TIPM to each light. Each circuit also passes through in-line connector #C135, a 20 pin connector in the left rear corner of the engine compartment (possibly behind the left wheel well cover.

:idea: It looks like on top of that skid plate would be a good place to mount something like an air tank or other accessory that wouldn't be affected by exhaust heat (if there's room).

Re: Bf Goodrich Ko2 tread excessive tread wear

Cupping is caused by alignment. Follow Thuren's alignment specs for the best results. FWIW, I have 4 years and 35K on my KO2's and still counting.
