Re: confused trans

Did you remove the exhaust resonator at some prior point? If so you might be hearing the MDS kicking in more when you let off the throttle at higher speed. Do RPMs go up like if is downshifting from 6-5?

Re: Airlifter 5000 Ultimate airbags w/ Daystar cradles '14+

I really don't do much mud, and will go out of my way to avoid it if possible, but I do 2-3k of desert dirt/sand a year. And it's been a year since I put mine in. I had it on my lift this past weekend eyeing available real-estate for some future mods, and I gave them a good once over. My concern was...

Re: Ford Tremor

Pretty sure it is avail on all crew SB trims, but possibly not. XL? I'm not in the market for one, so my interest isn't that high.

Re: Towing 8K lb trailer, Air Bags w/Cradles or WDH?

OP, try it first without the airbags and see how she tows. It is an easy half day job to install them if you're not happy. I will say however, having owned and towed both a 28' Airstream and a 28' Desert Fox (Nash) towing the two were quite different with the same truck (Dmax, 8' crewcab) and same W...

Re: Towing 8K lb trailer, Air Bags w/Cradles or WDH?

The bigger question is bags with internal stops or not. I didn't get them, sometimes I regret it, other times not. I never really got a good understanding on how much they would limit articulation. Being in NV is as tough a choice as I had here in AZ. Sometimes I'm able to run pretty fast on dirt, o...

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.

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.

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...
