Re: The "Real Reliability"

Go to any other vehicle model specific forum, and you'd be able to generate an equal list of complaints. :roll: I find #2 of particular interest, as you bring it up frequently over the past year of your posts, yet you didn't until today even know where the connector is until I told you. And complain...

Re: Axle unlock flashing orange

It is right on the swaybar actuator. Large, flat, with a locking handle that operates the cam lock. Easy to get to and very positive in its' engagement. I've not read of people fighting with it.

Re: Axle unlock flashing orange

Well my front sway bar disconnect has actually never worked, I gave up on that. Guess they use a terrible connector that comes loose, gets dirt in it, ect, ect. Never worked, not even when I bought it, dealer fixed under warranty and charged me one time. I don't do a ton of real wheeling and you do...

Re: The "Real Reliability"

I just rolled 67k on my '16. One failure, an EVAP solenoid that was covered. The upper intermediate shaft bushing is also wearing out. Your use of reliability means, at least to me, failure to be operated which of items listed would be transmission in limp mode. A cable operated parking pawl binding...

Thanks RLG. What lights did you end up putting in it? Also, I'm assuming that is a F55 hawse that'll just bolt on there?

I'd like to see shots of what the access is to the clutch, what kind of openings are committed to for lights (that may tie me into a specific brand that I may or may not want), how much of a top shelf there is to mount my antennas and possibly lights. What would be my options for fairleads, if any. ...

Re: 2017 software update radio doesn’t turn off

Just spitball'n here. How about pulling the fuse to it or disconnect the battery for 15+ min which *could* force a reboot?

I had that same message pop on my '16 a couple of weeks ago and I proceeded with the OTA update. All seems fine, but there was initially some funkiness with station presets.

Well, not sure which Method the OP purchased (assuming the faux), but we don't sell the true beadlock version as far as I'm aware, so can't really speak to their Race line. But here is what I got back: We have seem premature wear issues on certain sizes of KO2's when used on 3/4 and 1-ton diesel's. ...

Re: October is expensive truck month, part 2

Marcus - Seeing as how I work for Discount Tire (corp) I'm going to follow up on the Method wheels. I have not heard of such failures, but I'm not in the wheel dept. either. Are the failures that you know of due to improper lug torque, contact with rocks, or straight up cracking? I do recall that th...

Re: 2014+ Front Ends Vs 2013 and Older

To test for excessive wear, is it as easy as supporting the axle to get a tire off the ground enough to get say a prybar under the tire and lift? And/or grabbing the tire in the 9 and 3 position to get deflection (which would also show tie-rod slop)?

I just tapped into the parking light wire for the trailer harness. Same one as the clearance lights for your FWC. And a bit of advise, familiarize yourself with how to get the latch to release from the backside and what kind of tool you'll need to carry to do so. Unless they've radically changed the...
