Re: Thuren Track Bar

I don't think you can tighten the jam nut to 200lbft and then set the length. The instructions are probably correct.

Re: Thuren Track Bar

39 1/8

Remove the old bar. Bolt in the new bar at the axle, raise the frame side and insert the bolt while someone turns the steering wheel. If you don't have a second person, put the truck on jack stands and pull/push the tie rod while you put in the bolt.

Re: A Tale of Diagnostic Woe

I got hooked up with service manager who read me the star case notes. There's no record of a tech rep inspection or injector echoes caused by my lift. Everything after the lifter change was probably bullshit.

I suspect I have the beginning stages of the problems Nick is experiencing.

Re: Rear Shock Question

Yeah I got my truck and thought ‘man this is the perfect truck for me, I’m not touching this one unless it needs it.’ Three months later it needed King 3.0’s and bypasses and a trackbar and a lift :drool: It could happen to anybody. At least I resisted for three years. I made it a year and a half a...

Re: A Tale of Diagnostic Woe

My truck was built 12/15 and is not a cold start knock. The sound starts at full operating temperature.

Re: A Tale of Diagnostic Woe

In speaking with Nick, I do not have low oil pressure. In fact, all of my pressure look healthy and the truck drives correctly. I guess the up side is I have another 40K miles and three years left my warranty. I also called FCA and started a case with them. The person I spoke with suggested I go to ...

If I were to guess, they probably drove the truck just a little and let it idle the rest of the time.

Everyone had an unexpected meeting except the lowest guy on the totem pole. There's really nothing left to talk about anyway. I'm going to file a complaint with FCA this week.

Re: A Tale of Diagnostic Woe

"injector echos". That's a new one. What else they got? :roll: The service manager (the new one, not the old one from last week) seemed genuinely hurt when I told him I thought they were worthless parts changers. I think "XX year veteran technician" is a term they teach at the 'service department' ...

I think people just see the homeliness of the Purple Cranium and think it's not as strong. But it is. Ask @DamageWagon how abusive I am to my truck. :lol: :lol:

Re: A Tale of Diagnostic Woe

Aaaaaaaaaand, we're back to "it's supposed to be like that". FCA claims it's injector echos or some such thing.The dealer is saying they definitely heard abnormal lifter noise before and it's gone now (neither is true). This process is insulting to say the least.

Re: Front and rear diff guards

I've never owned a Purple Cranium guard and I don't drive around backwards much but I do have a Carli front guard and it is stout. If Carli made a rear I'd consider it a little more seriously than a Purple Cranium.

Re: A Tale of Diagnostic Woe

My truck is a '16, has 20K miles, and I've owned it for 2 years and three months. I'm not sure how bad I want to lemon-law the truck since it's not really a lemon, the local dealer is just a bad actor. The problem is the dealership is incompetent and nearly everything they've said to this point has ...
