Re: Lost oil pressure after high-speed offroad

If you were running that hard, and stared the pickup for oil, you could have dropped pressure momentarily. Long enough and you'll damage main bearings, which would result in the drop in oil pressure consistently. I'd cut open those oil filters looking for anything unusual for the next few changes. A...

Re: Fender Flares

Interested as well... Mine do the same thing, and I keep having to put new tape on. I don't want anything way wider either... Those AEV cutout flares that will stuff bigger tires do look interesting, but for the price, no thank you!

Re: 2012 New to Me!

Forgot to mention, I installed my DodgeOffroad steering brace this afternoon. It was not to bad given my relative novice mechanical abilities. I really enjoy working on this truck, and I look forward to getting better at it. My steering was pretty good to begin with, but this made it feel just like...

Re: Buffalo auto show.......

I like the '13... Sure, I don't have the 6.4L, or the rear coils, but I have the good front end, and 4.56 gears. Plus, '13 has the updated interior of the 14's... It's almost the perfect compromise. I talked to the same rep at the auto show TwinStick. Can't recall his name either, but he didn't seem...

Re: Need some math help here...........................

Have you tried the impeller mod yet? You'll get more throw with that than you will from upping the impeller speed. Take some rubber pieces, and self tapping screws with some big washers, and screw the rubber pieces to the impeller so that they contact the housing very lightly. It'll give you a tight...

Re: Heavy duty suspension

Shocks valved for a vehicle with roll issues will 100% have a huge impact on controlling roll. Just by adjusting the bypasses on my rear shocks I can go from having almost zero roll to having my truck flop like a fish. @reloaderguy might be able to chime in here. Your symptom was addressed, but at ...

Re: Heavy duty suspension

Shocks won't really help roll. You've increased the load on the dampers (shocks), so you should upgrade them with stiffer valving, but it still won't help body roll... You've increased the height of your CG, so it's going to roll more unless you increase the roll stiffness... The only way to do that...

Re: 2016 PW Bumper LineX

I was quote $1200 locally to do the front and rear bumper, and both rocker panels below the style line. A lot of it depends on where you live and how many competitors are around. We have a few different guys that do Line-x, and others that do similar products, so it keeps them from gouging on price.

Don't know how you were setup, but pulling out of a ditch is always difficult as like you said, the car wants to stay down there... If it's possible, hook a chain, strap, whatever to the back of that vehicle to an anchor on the high side of the ditch, perpendicular(ish) to how you'll pull them out. ...

you really only need to mask off the inner circle of the sensor. The outer part is just the clip that fastens it to the bumper.

Re: 2016 PW Bumper LineX

I plasti-dipped my rear sensors last year, no trouble at all with them. Based on how they work, anything that is in direct contact with them, that is uniform thickness, shouldn't alter their performance. LineX being rough textured may obscure the signal (it shouldn't effect the feedback). I'm in LA ...

Alright, 2013 Power Wagon that's recently developed a noticeable thud when the truck is turned from one direction to the other, accelerating from a stop.

Yeah, the Boss' usually do, but the main frame is just 8 bolts that are easily accessible to remove, then you're just left with the ears that bolt to the frame that hang down, so it's not as bad.

How many of you guys carry a snatch rope? I had a strap, it was alright, stretched about 15%.

I got a Bubba Rope about a year ago, and while it was expensive, it's insane how we...
