Re: New Rear Bumper?

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...

Re: TRANS GO POP

I was literally looking at the ATS bypass block a few weeks back. If this is what caused the failure, i wonder if the trans flush set it off? That would be against most logic but you never know. I was also looking at the ATS bypass after I *think* reading Rodeoflyer's mention of it. This might add ...

Re: Working on an Electric Sway Bar Bypass

Got some pretty decent rains yesterday here in the Phoenix area, and the road to my house is in pretty bad shape until myself and others get out to drag it with our tractors. Made me think this morning how nice it be to keep that bar disconnected for the 3 mile trek, twice a day.

Re: Sliders and active tune mass module

This should be interesting. The system has to be tuned to the unmodified chassis/frame. By altering with the sliders, harmonic frequencies will be different.

Did you have to move the DS module?

Re: '16 Steering Intermediate Shaft advise

I understand the need for lash. Been around reciprocating ball box's for many years. They are a wear item for sure, some faster than others. Good to know about the PSC box's. Are the gear surface wear areas larger due to size? Assume these are for the C&C's. I'm going to address the upper and lower ...

Re: '16 Steering Intermediate Shaft advise

Ordered the EMF's and there is visible wear on mine. But my lower intermediate needs to be replaced too, and that is ~$160 for what will probably be a 30k mile part.

I agree about the box, she is also sloppy. Any recommendations of anyone that does a good job at tighting them back up?

'16 Steering Intermediate Shaft advise

So starting at about 25k I began to notice a very slight slack feeling in the steering wheel primarily when centered or under light load. Now at 63k it annoys me enough that I'm ready to do something about it. The U-joint has slack in it, almost as if one of the cups was not pressed into the yoke fa...

Re: Overland 1.5 inch Spring w/King OEM 2.5 Shock

I'll let DWagon help you with the front situation, but in chatting with you over on WTW, you have a FWC and the EXP1 rear bumper, the spacer is fine, but you really should think about AirLift/Daystar and the Thuren rear trackbar/relo IMHO.

Well, from personal experience, it ain't going to do anything at normal operating RPM while in dusty conditions, and I drive in that situation every day.

When I talked to Sy-Klone, the guy laughed and said that the 9005 is what they use on a D6 Cat. He said that the 9001R is the correct unit for our application which is a 4" outlet vs 5". The adapter tube is item 901K2. Are you going to be running your engine at 5600 RPM all the time for it to work? ...

Re: Auxiliary Battery in RAMBOX

Found this in a quick search, but it goes along with what I've read prior when researching: As with all gelled and sealed units, AGM batteries are sensitive to overcharging. A charge to 2.40V/cell (and higher) is fine; however, the float charge should be reduced to between 2.25 and 2.30V/cell (summe...
