Re: Weirdness with Nav after Time Change

There was a GPS roll over, or whatever it's called, on the birds on or about NOV 3rd, or so I am told. 18.45, for most 8.4AN, is the fix. My distance was off by several hundred feet and the navigation would go crazy after making a turn and recalculating for several seconds, sometimes minutes.

Re: Rear reverse light pods

I'd wire them on their own circuit with the reverse light triggering a relay or on a switch in the cab. The center pin on 7-pin connector is supposed to the aux/back up light connection. Not sure of the wire color, probably, blk, yel, or purple

Re: Front rear cameras

Thanks I will look into NAV TV. And my 2017 does not have back up cam, can be added easy according to most but the front throws a kink in it. Summit racing sells a kit I like but just not sure. Been thru Kingsport several times over the years, pretty country. I am half way between Knoxville and Cha...

Re: PowerSteps

I now have had the PowerSteps for about a week. Absolutely love them. They tuck out of the way helping the keep the original look of the PW and at the same time provide the perfect height when deployed for anyone to use. So far everyone who has seen and used them on my truck loves them. Which brand...

Re: Front rear cameras

Kits are available for rear, front, side and cargo, but they are pricey and have some limitations depending on the model year. The kit interfaces with UConnect radio and displays on the screen on 5 and 8.4 radios. Otherwise like above, buy the piece parts along with monitor and wire it up. I think M...

Re: Diff Temp video

I was waiting on something innovative with the hype and when the end product was released, not impressed. I can see this is cover is not suitable for a 4WD unless building a SEMA-like, non-functional suspension truck. The scoop or duct thing would likely get caught on something and cover cracked or ...

Re: Seat Height and headroom issues.

Hell, I'm 6'2" and headroom is tight. Something about the cabs make them seem smaller. My guess is no aftermarket seat rails, so a custom rail would need to be be fabbed, likely at considerable expense

CAD alright. Looks like the actuator housing seal or housing is leaking. Assume it's under warranty, take it to dealer and get it fixed.

Re: PowerSteps

The AMP power steps have safety switch that stops deploy/stow when a certain level of voltage is exceeded. You can also force the steps to stay deployed by stepping on them, apply pressure, and shut door. They'll stay deployed until you open and close door. Not sure what good that does, you really c...

i have the 100k mile warranty. I thought FCA cut the powertrain warranty to 5/50 for HD gassers? How did you get 100K? I'm shocked a truck that is less than year or a little over and tranny already failed? You must ride hard. According to some, flushing has it pros and cons and could have mucked up...

All of the new 2019 Power Wagons on the dealer lots (that i've seen) do have some sort of steps.

Swapping the front springs out would also motivate me to get the Synergy drag link to replace the fubar welded unit the truck came with.

I have them, but off road worthiness is uncertain. As long as it's light to moderate should be okay. But if doing something where the rockers would contact ground, rocks, stumps, or stuck in mud to the point the frame is submerged, then they would be more than likely damaged in some shape or form.

A handful of businesses make the kits that interface with the OEM radio. Most are pricey, otherwise you'll have to power it and run it to its own monitor.
