Re: Alpine Loop - Colorado Camping

Ok, I am closing on the rest of the mining claims in the area, I bought them all! Going to sell off 7 of the 8 for home sites after developing roads, building sites, and plans with county. Picked our site. This land is hidden, but right off the highway with mines, old building, giant waterfalls, the...

Well you learned to ditch the Dura Trash first, but that was easy! Have you learned the secret hand signal yet?

Re: I put my order in

To be honest dual alternators should not be an option on the PW, they should be standard. One alternator or a single battery is not sufficient.

Does the Sway Bar Disconnect ever work?

Or is it just a POS Ram refuses to fix? Mine has never worked. Rarely unlocks and right now its been flashing since the last trip and wont re-engage. Pretty silly to have it when I am too scared to use it knowing its unlikely to work. Front locker wont ever work either, but the bi-pass kit took care...

Re: Towing Capacity

Eventually plan to tow a big skid steer a few times a year for retirement property work and back to current home and I will be over 12K for sure. I figure its only a few items a year, and a few hundred miles each way. But I like learning what everyone else has done to tow over the limit weights. Sou...

Re: 06 PW Winch

Used winch, not worth the labor to remove. Given the labor to extract. But also given a Power Wagon has less towing capacity....you have the wrong vehicle.

Re: Add me to the Duratrac hate list.

The punctures when not a trashed side wall are always under the fish skin between the tread for some reason. Its strange how other sites like TFL truck think they are great tires. It cant just be they don't work on a PW, come on...My wifes 4 Runner came with Nittos and they were not a bad tire at all.

Re: Should I?

For years I watched the steering box issues, front end issues, locker issues, transmission issues, engine issues, and general Ram Problems. I realized that around 2017 things had been revised to basically leave lockers not engaging as the one thing FCA finds un-worthy of repair...so I bought an 2018...

Re: Ford Tremor

And 35s....They can keep the Diesel, but 35s, modern t/case and terrain modes, bigger engine, better towing capacity, and rock rails are attractive. Looks like Ram will have to step it up sooner then planned!

Sorry guys forgot about this post. Yes, my issues was lockers engaging randomly at speed. I had moisture in the locker over ride box. So I moved it. Will also try to seal it better.

Re: Grind/rub on Acceleration

I am getting some issues on my 2018 now as well, over the last week or so. At times even turning it feels like the LSD is sticking.( but most times not at all) But I also got a nasty clang, clang pulling away from a stop sign yesterday and a buzzing under the dash from the traction control.

Re: Tire Cupping

I have never had to rotate tires before on a vehicle. I assume it has something to do with the solid axle, or suspension set up, ect.....I do live in the mountains. Discount tire does free rotations, its just finding the time. Guess I will go every 5K or so. Thats a ton given the miles I do for work...

Tire Cupping

So the Dura Trash did in 3K miles and the BFG started at 15K. Even had an alignment done but was not needed. Seems to be the nature of the beast on these. I plan to rotate tires every oil change now, 9K-10K. But not sure if that is even enough. How often does everyone else rotate?
