Re: 2019 1500 Info Release

The new JL Jeep 8.4 is water proof. Don't guess they figure we don't need that. By the way the updates are automatic now.

Here comes the 48 volt electrical system.

All I want is a simple truck with simple up-grades. Not some rolling tech mobile.
Guess you will be buying used 1970's trucks from now on :poke:

Re: Folding in Mirrors for better fuel mileage?

Got you, and yes those extendable mirrors would be crazy bad. Never really extended them on My Titan, usually I tow heavy equipment rather then a big, boxy trailer. My PW came with the flip to vertical tow mirrors. Will try those out when I first tow. Montana was the last to have unlimited. 80-85 ou...

Re: Folding in Mirrors for better fuel mileage?

Mine is new, so I have not pushed it yet. But say 50-100 acceleration betrays the mediocre 0-60 numbers and drag race results of this heavy beast. At 100 its quite comfortable for an off-road truck, not much different then my Titan was. Not sure where the speed limiter cuts in, but we will find out ...

Re: Folding in Mirrors for better fuel mileage?

I know it is Alien to Easterners, but I usually cruise at 82-87MPH on the highway.( I have a section I do 95-120 on) You could never get going that fast safely out east. The slower trip up state highway to Colorado is more like 75MPH-77MPH so I could try that next time as well. So what I read was 6%...

Re: Folding in Mirrors for better fuel mileage?

Wonder if yours have some moisture in the mechanism that froze? I don't think its that unsafe on the highway, if its not congested like it in town. I just get in the left lane and cruise, not much moving between lanes.

Re: Folding in Mirrors for better fuel mileage?

Well they did the tail gate thing back in the day and drafting. Both with solid results. Too bad they are not around anymore. I think I will try it on 2 90 mile trips coming, one folded one unfolded using cruise at a slow speed, say 82 MPH and see what happens.

I am going to try it. Not practical or particularly safe around town. But on a long road trip that is another story. Yes, I love running through the car wash now, they are awesome.

Folding in Mirrors for better fuel mileage?

I got blinded by my mirrors yesterday due to the angle of the sun so quickly fumbled for the control to fold them before my retinas burned out. But that got me thinking, what about just folding them on the highway to improve fuel mileage? From what I have read it can add as much as 6% to cars and 10...

Having a vendor come in and work though issues on a forum? Its NEVER happened before that I have witnessed. The credibility from this thread for the vendor is significant to me in considering future purchases. :cash:

Re: Please add a Signature info

FB is so much more complex and hard to navigate. Forums are simple and straightforward. I hired someone to work on things like Face Book pages for the business because they are so absurdly complex. Not sure why PW and Mits guys went to using a FB page. More options I guess but sure harder to use.

Re: DTC P1C4E and some weird electronic stuff.

Funny how its usually something simple.(except on new Raptors) With the era of Monteros people used to do all the ghetto 80s and 90s after market alarms on them. So you would always get "it just quit on the drive home" posts....do you have an aftermarket alarm? ...theirs your problem. These days it ...

Ok, so I am new and don't know anything about Power Wagon issues. However a common theme we see over and over is someone posts a technical question but we have no idea what year they drive.

My Titan got into some real trouble one time.

I bet I burned a qtr tank revving that V8 to redline over and over for an hours to get out....

Re: MPG calculator versus hand calculations

Can it really get that bad? I don't think under normal operating conditions it would. But say stuck in the mud flooring it...but then you are stuck and off road so who cares. My guess is if you let it idle forever or had a ridiculous off road session it could go down to 0 or 1MPG read out but would ...

Re: MPG calculator versus hand calculations

I posted pictures in the photo string. I have the sliders sitting in my garage. Those will probably kill .5MPG due to weight. Want to do some synthetic line to help off set a portion of that weight.
