Re: Axle U-Joints

Well, I ordered the EMF balljoints, and the Spicer/Dana U-Joints. Should be here by the end of next week. So, I'll probably be tied up in this project most of next weekend. Hoping the ball-joint press has the nut to get the old joints out successfully. Going to start hosing things down with PB Blast...

Re: Axle U-Joints

Well I'm jealous Rusty! Haha. I don't plan on replacing my U-joints ever again either... I figure another 2-3 years with the truck, then on to the next one. So, the EMF ball joints and Spicer U-Joints should get me another 45K miles or so without issue. I'll probably go with Don's Trackbar, just bec...

Re: Axle U-Joints

Which Spicer's did you use? 5-3212X looks like the right ones. Those RCV's are trick, but for $2300 I can buy a lot of U-joints... Hell, I can buy ball joints, a track bar, u-joints, and rock rails all for less money, or new U-joints and a free spin hub kit... As for ball joints, EMF are about $520,...

Axle U-Joints

Alright, I'm getting feedback through the wheel, telling me the front joints are shot (binds enough to give a ratchet effect when returning to center on sharp turns). I 'm going to upgrade to a Thuren or Carli Track Bar as well. Thinking about doing ball joints while I'm in there (ridiculously expen...

SOLID Rear Diff Cover 2014+

Re: Bought a Jeep

FYI, they had the brake-lock traction control system, and while it's certainly not a locker, you'd be surprised what it'll do stock with that system alone. Put it in 4lo, and get a wheel up and spinning, and the computer applies brake force to just that spinning wheel, the diff routes power to the o...

Re: 4th gen units ready to ship immediately.

No... You could hardwire the lockers, but that'll require bypassing the factory switch. Might screw with your smartbar too (I don't remember). I plan on keeping my truck for a while, so I'm tempted just to hardwire them. They'll have instant engagement, but you won't have any feedback that they're l...

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...

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.
