Re: Hardwired Lockers with OEM Knob

Has anyone tried either jumpering or splicing C to G and D to H inside the Smartbar or the wires outside? It seems the bar is being supplied power but then interrupting it in the logic board. That is essentially what the 4th Gen locker bypass is doing at the plug next to the computer. It'll throw a ...

Re: Hardwired Lockers with OEM Knob

Does the Smartbar circuit board contain the transfer case position and speed limiting logic? If yes, can anyone identify the circuit path on the board?

I'll leave this here in case someone else in the future wants to hardwire their lockers from the SmartBar connector.

Re: Hardwired Lockers with OEM Knob

relay power and ground the locker wires At the smartbar? thats sounds simple enough... does the smart bar disconnect have the same function as the lockers, in the way that 12V power disconnects the bar no matter what conditions exist? That's a really great question. Which wire is the 12v power side...

Re: Hardwired Lockers with OEM Knob

Volt meter.

You could have used two diodes and kept the factory wires connected too. You didn't need to cut the negative wires either.

To bad you put that grandpa cap on your truck.
Do you drive around with the mast up on your retirement sale boat or just when you load up your station wagon?

Re: Maxxis Tires

Thanks for the input. The Razr looks pretty good and the price is right. Maxxis is one of the few companies that makes a load index 128 40x13.5R20 and it's affordable.

Re: 2016 Power Wagon and new tires and rims.

I gave it to you in the very first response. You will not have any hard contact on the radius arms or sway bar with that wheel and tire combo. You will have to trim a little plastic which is worth doing to avoid reducing your turning radius.

Re: Trackhawk

That's a nice car and a great value for $55k. I'm not sure why it is but I always see HCs in stock at some random Dodge dealer half way between Missoula and Kalispell. I think at one point last year they had six or seven. It's in the middle of no where.

Re: Trackhawk

The HC is 4500lb. You don't need 800hp to run an HC. Regular HCs dyno around 650hp at the wheels at sea level. A 2018 Mustang GT with a Roush blower makes close to the same with a warranty and 700lb less weight. The mustang will actually turn too.

Gotchya. Well that was pretty smart of the manufacturer (finally!). I cant believe a topper dealer doesnt know these things.

Re: Third Brake Light Wiring

When the dealer whom I purchased the topper originally wired the third brake light on the topper they did it entirely incorrect. If you purchase a truck top or a tonneau cover with an integrated third light, you can simply grab the brake light jumper off the harness. The reason why this is an issue ...

Third Brake Light Wiring

I'm sure this isn't news to many of you but I haven't seen it posted here. I put a truck top on my truck two years ago. When the truck was originally wired it was done incorrectly (all of it, literally every wire was connected incorrectly). I was getting fault codes because of the crappy job so I di...

Re: Trackhawk

Sometimes we let our emotions prevent us from comprehending written english. I try not to wrap my ego around the things I own. No, 700hp isn't impressive from a raw HP standpoint anymore. What is impressive is the warranty on the 700hp. The HC will easily hold 1K HP when you're ready to start moddin...

D rated tires often carry the same load index as E rated tires.
