Re: Engine Oil Temperature

The 6.4 runs hotter on oil temp. On my 5.7 my oil is normally at coolant temp or 10 degrees below. The hottest I have ever been able to get was with the truck packed and a 5,000lb trailer towing along the mountains for a few hours. 2nd gear almost pinned the entire time, coolant held at 219 with the...

Re: Axle Seals worn frequently?

Have you bent your axle? That will smoke axle seals in a short time and you’ll never get a seal to work right. These axles aren’t that easy to bend but it definitely happens to many guys, particularly if you’ve taken a hard smack.

Axle springs should be silent. Small movement causing a clunk can be so many things.

Re: Sliders

Check that you don’t have anything that can now bump into the frame or cab as things move. The cab moves a lot relative to the frame. Could also be a bracket that’s bent out of shape and coming back into contact with the sheet metal. If you modify the sliders, they either need to attach to cab or fr...

Re: Thuren front leveling kit

FYI on the 03-13 trucks, if you’re in stock springs, usually the springs have sagged out so much that those lift numbers are usually quite off. On my truck I used the 1.5” lift springs and it gave me 4” of lift.

Considering a 2018 Power Wagon, help

Is there a recommended yracbar to go with? Thuren rear track bar is the only one worth doing.

Re: Headers

Nice, I’ve considered them but JBA said they don’t fit. The only ones I found that for sure were good to go are the ARH set but for $2k with cats plus required tune that’s a big chunk of coin.

My 06 CTD has that same problem. Every time I do a rough off road ride I have to recenter the steering wheel. I figgured it was the threads jumping but happens so infrequently that I just recenter when needed. I don't want to hve to take the front end apart to fix it! But maybe I should, would hate...

Re: 2014+ FRONT DIFFERENTIAL COVER HELP

The 2014 trucks trackbar gets pretty close to the diff. We saw the AEV cover would contact the trackbar on PW’s in Moab and needed some grinder love. So with that being a replacement cover, that shows how close they sit.

Re: Suspension setup to fit 37x12.5s on stock wheels with zero rubbing, esp. on genie lamps?!!

If your stuck on the factory wheels and worried about the minor rubbage, you can always look into wheel spacers. A 1.5" spacer with the stock wheels would equal out pretty close to a +18 offset. If I was going to commit suicide I would find a more interesting way to do it than wheel spacers. Like w...

Nice!! I really dig the Carli units. I haven’t played with the Ruff Stuffs but they look solid! I don’t think Gale Banks will be crawling under your truck any time soon to disrupt your oil flow.

You can put 37x12.5’s on a stock power wagon right off the lot with no changes and pretty much get away with it. You will have a slightly larger turning radius and usually need to trim the fender liner some. +18mm is the rough number to aim for with new wheels but that is absolutely not a hard numbe...
