Glad it worked out and you didn’t have to white knuckle it home.

I think my toothpaste now has a disclaimer about causing cancer in CA. I don’t live in CA so I guess I’ll be alright.

Trans cooler bypass valve delete?

Yeah my draglink nuts loosened a few times but I put a stop to that. Haven’t had an issue with them in 50k miles now. I won’t allow them to weld the nuts either. I’ll buy a synergy draglink. Some other info lace we’re on the trans topic...RFE transmissions have a weak stock valve body. My 4th gear c...

Trans cooler bypass valve delete?

Sounds about right, however the draglink falling apart and killing an entire family may be priority over their poor transmission programming causing failed transmissions or whatever other issues are reported such as a high rate of thermostat failures. I had the solenoid recall done along with PCM up...

Re: Trans cooler bypass valve delete?

Well, the ad for the delete says they fail ‘in every case’. I’ll take my chances with the delete. My transmission builder said he was fine with it and it won’t affect his 100k warranty. He was investigating how to modify the stock one to convert it to a bypass when I located this one. Sent from my i...

Trans cooler bypass valve delete?

Yes I installed one and am happy with it. We realized mine was stuck only after the transmission was fully rebuilt. It may have been the root cause of my transmission failure. I was pushing 100k miles and the rebuilt one has a 100k mile warranty so I’m comfortable with it. It seems like a failure pr...

Re: 2018 Power Wagon Brake Issues

I can four wheel skid/lock pretty easily now with the best pads and rotors vatozone sells.

It often surprises the hell out of me. I went from hating the brakes on this truck to feeling they’re more than sufficient.

I am still on toyo MT 35’s so...

Maybe Don should advertise upgraded lower shock mounts with 4gen 3.0 sales.

Well...this sucks

That’s why I was wondering what stage he’s running. My stage 5’s have massive damping. It’s incredibly hard to fully compress them (high speed) short of catching air. The mounts are taking a lot of force. When I get around to having my axle tubes welded I’ll have them do the shock mounts. Sent from ...

Yep, catching air without limit straps probably wouldn’t be a great idea.

Absolutely. I’m wondering if the boogies are allowing too much compression. Don’t the kings have some some kind of internal bumpstop? It will be interesting to hear what Don says.

This area is not welded. Have them weld that part. Not sure why the engineers thought that was smart. This should never occur within the limitations of stock shocks and bumpstops but still... https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190512/b85bdae293a78d555002788ca16cec84.jpg Sent from my iPhone using Tap...

Re: Well...this sucks

From the looks at the little dirt/oil marks it appears that you’ve fully compressed them a few times. Are you running boogie bump stops?

Yeah the 4th gen shock mounts are a notably weak spot. I’m stage 5 front and have beat on mine pretty good for about 70k miles now. I probably need to take a close(er) look at them than I do with my regular underbody and suspension checks.

It can be welded back on. It’s usually an incorrect shock length or the use of shock extenders as the cause.

What stage are your King’s?

Re: Truck felt squirrely on drive back

I think the key word is ‘new’. Tread squirm is pretty noticeable for the first 5k miles or so.

Agreed. The stock rotors and pads are made for longevity. Anything aftermarket is better stopping.

All of my parking sensors are disconnected (front and rear). I get a chime at startup and don’t even notice it now. The buttons are set to disable. 2016 truck.

There were some reports around here a few months ago of DIESEL mistakenly put in the gas tanks.

I’d be really pissed off.
