That a autozone SUV cargo net that I used with zip tie mods, not perfect but 10.00. I cut my dividers out off thin plywood. thats what I used on other side to keep tool bag in place. Nice. Santa dropped me off the mopar kit. Good thing, too, because the kit is so overpriced for what you get I would...

Re: Cool hidden features

Is there a way to turn seatbelt chime off on a 2015 tradesman with few options? Yes, Just turn the key to Accessory (don't start it) and then connect and disconnect the seatbelt 3 times in 10 seconds, and then turn the ignition back off. :wink: I did exactly as you said three separate times and it ...

Re: 2019 1500 Info Release

I'm not signing up for either the Chevy or Ram with that new tech. Chevy has MDS on crack... 1 cylinder to 8 depending on load... Not touching that. And a generator for an alternator and 48v on the Ram? Sounds great but I'll give em 2-3 years to work out the kinks. Already got burned on a first year...

Re: Recovery gear questions!

The price is too high on this, but I have been imagining something similar for RAMBOX trucks: http://www.4xinnovations.com/2005-2018-Tacoma-Hi-Lift-Bed-Mounts_p_41.html There are actually a few really nice solutions for the Toyota Tacoma and Tundra rails. Does anyone know if Ram bed rails and Toyot...

http://www.swagoffroad.com/Bottle-Jack-Axle-Cradle_p_66.html A bottle jack with one of these is extremely useful offroad and much easier to store securely than a hilift.

Re: Portable Air Compressor

I've read good things about the various MasterFlow compressors out there, like the MF-50, and the 1089, which is a jumbo version of the MF-50. They put out a new kit recently w/in the last year called the M240, it's a compressor & accessories built into a .50Cal ammo can: https://www.amazon.com/gp/...

Yeah, problem is we don't have the wheel humps. So if you do that the jack is just floating in the middle suspended instead of tucked up under the bed rail and over the wheel hump. Great idea but I don't think I'd like it hovering...

And sliding on ice in a tank is a very uncomfortable feeling unless you know what you're going to stop against and it isn't something you'll get in trouble for. I once did 360s in a tank as the gunner when driver lost control on an icy road in Hohenfels. We hit a forest... not a tree, a forrest... ...

Re: 37" tires with 4.10 for those who do have

Minor thread hijack. Are you guys just using the Procal to adjust tire sizes? I have the rental devices coming to fix tire size, add fog lights to high beams, and adjust tpms without dealer intervention. I'm just wondering if I'm missing the boat on something with the Procal?

Re: Another Airlift 5000 Ultimate/Daystar Cradles Install

Nice! All summer I wanna say I used around 30 psi with our travel trailer (7000lb’s empty). That is with a weight distribution hitch, which was set up for no bags or leveling kit. The few times I hauled my buddy’s Jeep with a car hauler I was around 30 psi also. Of course, both of those situations ...

Yeah, it wasn't uncommon at all. For all kinds of reasons. I was once lined up stopped in a convoy in Korea and the frozen road under my right track just decided enough was enough and that it couldn't take it a second more. Bam! Slid into the ditch. That one wasn't even my fault... road just took a ...

Okay, based on feedback and space I ordered the 14000 Pull-pal and the 60 Hi-Lift Extreme. I'm standing pat until after Moab on anything else. I did go through Nena Barlows offroad list and added the ARB tire patch kit from those recommendations as well. Thanks everyone!

I find when overplanning for some adventure it's best to pull a 36' gooseneck with you with a spare truck, a skid steer and a truck box camper on it. But honestly a good set of sockets and wrenches and pliers are worth their weight in gold. I've done brake repairs to shock removal to changing tie r...

Re: Recovery gear questions!

Great advice. I don't like a Hi-Lift either. But when you need one no other jack will do, and it'll work as a bead breaker and come-a-long. Wouldn't use it to change a tire. It's a recovery tool not a jack. I'm going to pack one of those bottle jack/jack stands i picked up that we used to level the ...
