Re: Front Driveshaft Grease Fitting doesn't want to take grease

Thanks for the replies. As I'm still under warranty and have to go in for a U53 recall, I think I'm going to let the dealer take a look at it. No clue how to take the front driveshaft out, but I guess I'll have a look in the event I have to do it in the future. 50/50 odds the dealer won’t have a cl...

Never had it happen to mine, but then again I have not traveled many washboard roads with it.

Did you grab ahold of it and wiggle it?

Do you have the adjustable pedal option?
Yes sir.
I believe that is an issue that only affects the vehicles with the adjustable pedals option. The whole pedal set can shake around. :popcorn:
Still worth having the adjustable pedals, Thanks

If it shook when you applied the brakes, it's probably the ABS kicking in. Washboard confuses the crap out of the ABS computer.
Nope. Was on gas pedal on flat road, brake pedal was shaking side to side.

Never had it happen to mine, but then again I have not traveled many washboard roads with it. Did you grab ahold of it and wiggle it to see if it is loose? I did. Got under there with a flashlight.

Brake pedal shakes violently on washboard road ?

Was on a fairly nasty washboard road Saturday while pheasant hunting. Brake pedal shook so hard and loud I was a bit concerned.

That normal ?

This is my first solid axle fwiw.

Thanks

Re: Off and On Road Lights

Sucks there is not much available for our trucks.

Found a great deal on Amazon for the rigid grill and 30" rds bar, but called rigid and they say it won't fit on a power wagon.

Pillar mounts and the over the windshield bar are going to create a bunch of wind noise.

Re: Alignment on 2015 20K Miles?

I'm no expert, but in my experience, any aggressive tread pattern tires need to be rotated every 5000 miles max, or cupping and uneven wear begins.

Re: Curious about process to order 2017 Power Wagon at deale

Man I'd have bought Denver Broncos Orange in a heartbeat :drool: . I bet Ram doesn't know what they're missing.
When I asked at the dealer I bought from they said 1500's sell to everybody, Heavy duty's just typically commercial use and commercial use doesn't want bright colors.
