Re: Premier Power Welder or Ready Welder II

Just another option.....if this applies : If you already own a portable generator (like many of us already), you could just get a small regular 120v welder. Use it at home like regular & just bring the generator ( or even a good sized inverter would work ) when wheeling ? More stuff yes, but if you...

Re: Bent Drag Link/ABS System Error

You may want to pull the pitman arm down and inspect for signs of twisting damage on the sector shaft splines, right above the pitman arm. With the pitman arm out of the way, you can eyeball the entire length of spline for uniformity. I've seen it on other vehicles before, it's worth a look anyway. ...

Premier Power Welder or Ready Welder II

Just wondering if anyone on this forum has ever used one of these products? Have you ever needed or used a welder on the trail? I'm thinking of getting a 110 volt welder that I can use at home and thought maybe I should consider one of these options so it would be completely portable. I'm not that h...

I’ve done manifolds on my 3rd gen, you can do the bolts without lifting the engine. It’s a little tedious but not terrible. If you do new hardware / SRT bolts etc. then you won’t be able to retain the heat shields, but I don’t think they do much anyway. Use high temp antisieze You won’t be able to ...

Oddly enough, though, I did find out that if I swing it into 4wd before the “check anti-lock braking system” light comes on right when the truck is started, the CAD will lock up. But if the light is on, then it wont loc...

Even though we have a manual t-case, there is still a t-case position sensor. Is the TCPS ONLY for our lockers or would it also prevent 4wd if a WSS got snagged as you say ? I am curious. :popcorn: The TCPS doesn't control anything, it only provides information to modules. It informs the BCM so it ...

Is that the sensor/wire that connects to the hub bearing? I ask, because I do know that when that is not connected on a cummins truck the 4wd system will no longer work. Not sure if that is the case on our power wagons. Yes, hub bearing wheel speed sensor. The 4X4 has to work on our trucks because ...

The YAW sensor may still cut throttle response if it senses unwanted lateral movement. We'll see as soon as someone has the stones to give it a try. :poke:

Re: Kill-switch for electronic nannies

As an experiment try unplugging one of your wheel speed sensors. It will set an ABS code and turn on the light. When the system knows that it’s not trustworthy due to missing sensor input it shuts itself off and turns on the dash light. Then see how it starts and drives. In theory if ABS is shutdown...

Re: Liqui Moly

I don't know anything about that brand, but I do know that you need to stick with the recommended oil viscosity or thinner to keep the MDS happy and not set a computer code. The computer is alway monitoring MDS reaction time in milliseconds and if it takes too long, you'll get a light.

anybody ever drill the spicer caps and put needle or zirk grease fittings?
No can do. The caps are made of hardened kryptonite. Also I don't think theres a grease passage through the cross section of the joint, which make them stronger than a grease type joint. (solid iron vs. hollow)

Re: Big Time shudder at low speed/low pedal

Make sure you check the trans fluid level when the truck is idling in neutral to obtain a correct reading. Mopar trannies are different than others that are checked in park idling.

Re: Big Time shudder at low speed/low pedal

Just speculating out loud: Check your U-joints, look for rust coming out of the cups. Park on level ground, set the parking brake, block the wheels and leave the transmission in neutral then feel each U-joint for play. When was the last time you greased the hidden fitting in the front driveshaft? (c...
