seems like I tried this before (update via usb) and it wouldn't update because Uconnect was already on that version... but you can try it.

Re: Best Off-Road Camping Trailer

Check out the Mantis by TAXA Outdoors. Those and the black series were the most capable looking I saw at the off grid expo a few weeks ago.

Re: PWJouster's Build - 2018 Power Wagon "TrailWhale"

I installed the bypass after the trans rebuild. Not sure it would have helped in pwjouster case. Sounds like a snap ring or something metal came apart in there. Not that overheating could have influenced it.

PWJouster's Build - 2018 Power Wagon "TrailWhale"

I had the recall done, the service manager said it looked bad internally but they went ahead and did the recall then returned the truck to me. A month later I lost reverse gear. I took it to Austex transmission who I HIGHLY recommend. They used my extended warranty to cover $3500 of the rebuild bill...

Re: PWJouster's Build - 2018 Power Wagon "TrailWhale"

Well I can’t dispute the YJ choice. I’d love to have one! My trans failed at 92k miles about two months after I had the solenoid recall done. When they did the solenoid recall my service manager called and said it looked like ‘the transmission was coming apart internally’ so I had it rebuilt..NOT by...

Not trying to turn your build thread into a trans debate/discussion but just wondering...did you have the solenoid recall done?

Re: 2018 Power Wagon Brake Issues

I have a 2016. The rears were 3/8-24x1'' but like I said the fronts didn't work. I'd recommend calling Russell products or Dorman. I plan to since I'm hearing multiple size suggestions from forums.

Re: 2018 Power Wagon Brake Issues

I swapped the fluid and did the rear speed bleeders this weekend (rear only, fronts were the incorrect size). I used a turkey baster to fully evacuate the reservoir, refilled and bled the rears. Then I evacuated and refilled the reservoir again to replenish as much as possible with fresh fluid. What...

I bought some dorman speed bleeders and Motul RBF 660 fluid this week and plan to flush the system ...

I’d much rather this if I wanted to compromise... doors swing all the way open.

Split Personality Tailgate

Ok I see...had to go watch the video. It swings down as well. I don’t know, seems like a solution that doesn’t have a problem.

It may be good for someone who needs to step up into the bed often or maybe someone with a disability.

Upgrading to 35’s

Set them to 45 front/40 rear depending on your shocks. Good starting point then adjust up or down for comfort level.

Offroad down to 20psi depending on terrain (rock/sand/mud).

Rotate them often, like every 3k miles often.

What PSI for Thuren/King Steering Damper?

Mine needs an adapter of some sort. Thuren said they would provide the adapter eventually. It's like a King 2.0.

RAM should own up and correct their trans and lifter issues. https://www.ramforum.com/threads/cracke ... fe.139345/

My factory thermostat also failed around the same time.

Re: Fault Code P0750 'Shift Solenoid A'

I definitely ignored the recall. I won't ignore another recall for drivetrain. I think the major damage was caused by the faulty solenoid and factory trans programming. I should have taken it in as soon as the recall was issued. However...Chrysler defines 'lifespan' as 100k miles. The billet VB is t...
