Re: Hello just registered today

Hello, just met a fellow power wagon owner who turned me on to this site. I just recently upgraded from a 2006 ram bighorn to a 2013 Laramie power wagon, and what an upgrade. Besides the total luxury of the Laramie trim, this thing is a beast. It's a rock crawler right from the factory. The only th...

Re: For Sale- 4th Gen Locker By Pass from myoung84

I'm interested in this, but only for the purpose of researching to see if it can be cloned easily. :digahole:
If it's beyond my ability I would put it back up for sale again.

I had posted that info above just after one of yours.

Cam lobe and lifter seem fine. Pushrod seat in the lifter looks fine. Bearing feels the same as the other 7 on that side with some hand load.
Ah yes, the page changed and I missed it. :doh:

So did this happen on cold start up, cruising along, or wide open throttle racing a Raptor? :popcorn:

Re: Kill-switch for electronic nannies

This was all caused by the ProCal? :shock:
How did you rectify this problem?
Did limp mode/no throttle response disappear in 2wd, or did you drive home at 10mph?
Dude, you have had the worst luck with that ProCal!

Re: consol light bulb number lighta up cup holders ?

If it's the light I think you're talking about, they call it the ash receiver lamp, part #4608669AB. It's an assembly, I don't think the bulb is replaceable separately.

Judging by the fuse imprint in my kids playdough, looks to be about 1 1/8” of room, maybe 1 3/16”.
It’s on its way to you, just give it a try and see how it fits.

The tailgate tire carrier can damage your bed if you use your truck offroad at speed. Otherwise it’s made well. Strapt offroad also has an in bed tire carrier that’s pretty simple and nice

I only have a 30A relay and is the reason I used the 30A fuse instead of the 40A.
Good call.
I wonder if the guys on DTX that have spliced into the tan/red wire have used properly rated components, because that wire is the 40A circuit. :o

There appears to be a little over an inch in depth inside the box, above the fuses.
Ok, the relay measures 1-1/8" square. Do you think it will fit between the rows of fuses and under the lid? Otherwise I'll have to rethink this whole project. :(

Re: Kill-switch for electronic nannies

7". The relay I have handy has a waterproof end and doesn't fit. I'd rather mount it to the side of the fuse box since my box is notched anyway. Interrupting a 12 ga. 40 amp circuit requires using 40 amp rated components. Unfortunately no one makes a waterproof SPDT 40 amp normally closed relay tha...

Send me your next prototype please.
Can you do me a favor and measure this distance for me, so I know the harness is the right length? Also if you have a standard ISO relay handy, can you confirm that it fits in that area of the fusebox and that the lid is still able to close?

Re: Kill-switch for electronic nannies

My hang up was the frailty of the plug in fuse adapter. If you have a robust adapter I'd certainly take another look. With that said though, my warranty is up next year and I'll probably just cut the harness. Do like BLM does and switch the negative side of a naturally open relay with a keyed power...
