Re: Steering Pop and Vibration

Check your drag link nuts. Make sure they’re very tight. Mine felt tight with hands but once I torqued them down the clicking/popping noise disappeared.

The statements above are all possibilities as well.

Great write up there Mikey. Just FYI you can save time by purchasing a lightbar harness and skip all the time consuming wire loom part. Tim made me that awesome disconnect with aircraft grade wiring.

Power Wagon Picture Thread

Damn that looks good. Some 13.5’’ width tires are in order. Funny how one mod snowballs into the next.

Re: 2020 Power Wagon - Spied

The ZF fluid is $40/qt however they say it’s good for a hundred years. They even sealed the transmission so you don’t have to worry about it :).

Re: 2014+ Track Bar Bolt Torque Spec 280+ - 320+???

I put 250 on mine when I installed it at 30k miles and 250 again when I removed it for bushing inspection at 75k miles. It’s been good so far.

Re: 2020 Power Wagon - Spied

The transmission programming on mine was terrible. When they did the 5 recalls, reflashed everything it's like a different truck. I don't even feel shifts now, it will hold at 35mph in 3rd gear, and downshifts with just a light blip of the throttle. It was so bad with the factory tune.

Think a lot of it has to do with tuning. Torque management programming plays a big part of it.
I agree no doubt the tune is part of the problem.

Re: 2020 Power Wagon - Spied

I'm sure the 5.13's and that stage 2 545rfe/3k stall makes a huge difference. I'd like to find a stock dyno chart from the 6.4l truck motor, compare that with the stock 5.7l truck motor. I think weight plays a large part and the gears make a big difference but would like to see the difference in cam...

Whoa what? Same ratios?

65RFE:
1st = 3.000
2nd = 1.667
2nd prime = 1.500
3rd = 1.000
4th = 0.750
5th = 0.667
Reverse = -3.000

66RFE:
1st = 3.231
2nd = 1.837
3rd = 1.410
4th = 1.000
5th = 0.816
6th = 0.625
Reverse = -4.444

The new 1500's are so refined it's crazy. If I was blindfolded and someone told me I was in a body on frame vehicle I'd never believe it. They are amazing trucks.

Re: Performance out of the 10-13 5.7 hemi?

It's not even in the same class as the powerwagon. You're absolutely right it's not even half the truck. But the 8speed is amazing. However with the 20'' wheels I'm averaging 15.3 mpg with evo on. My wagon with 35's averages 12.5 with evo off. I've had the truck a few days now and the mpg isnt that ...

Re: Performance out of the 10-13 5.7 hemi?

My trucks at the dealer having five recalls done and they gave me 2019 1500 loaner. The 8 speed transmission is such an improvement.

This thing is rocket. The 8 speed transmission is the ticket. The older rams need 5.x diff gearing. Hell the newer 66/68RFE's too.

I don't get the whole ADAPT thing.. however if you want to have that kind of control...degrees of light are degrees of light and lumens dependent mainly on reflector and LED type. You want a flood/spot/superspot (for 100mph driving offroad :D ). The D2's provide massive flood and driving. Another sm...

Personally I’d never use anything to ‘clean’ the inside. Thats what diff fluid is for. If it’s dirty change it. If it’s still dirty change it again. There’s no filter so you wouldn’t want to introduce any foreign particulate. I don’t see a problem with the q-tip cleaning of the magnet. I’ve never n...

It’s an LSD but a helical style, not clutchpack style so the additive isn’t necessary.

Stock steel wheels. I know... it’s an 11-13 year truck but for illustration purposes.
