Re: Engine Oil Temperature

I think that the 6.4's do run pretty hot. I live in AZ, so ambient temps range wildly as you probably know, but I've seen temps over 230* frequently and it did freak me out. Might be why they spec that liquid gold that goes in it. Well that and FCA is in bed with Pennzoil. Others may chime it here, ...

Re: AEV KATLA WHEEL

I've been running the Red Letters for a couple of years on my LX450 and about 6 months on the PW. Really like them as a desert southwest tire. Original pattern gave a real pucker factor if caught in snow/ice thou and a nice massage traveling under 15mph. X3's are better in both regards.

Hmm, didn't know that the axle droop would increase once the, "springs get broken-in."

Re: 37's Not Balancing

16PW - are you in a snow belt? I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts on the KM3 if you are. He mentioned that he is here in the Phoenix metro area. That said, snow does (normally) fall this time of year in higher elevations, ie Flagstaff, so the potential is available. I work for Discount and ...

Re: 37's Not Balancing

Mounting out of spec is kind of at the Managers discretion. Obviously discouraged by Corporate, but... If the pull remains regardless of tire position, seems difficult to blame the tires. Is there another DT in your area? BTW, where are you? FWIW, I just put a set of Grabber X3's on a couple of week...

Re: Steering Box Slop - 2015

Hey (Nick?), yes, I got movement. Probably the cause of the feeling that I get in the wheel. I can defiantly feel a bit 'o slack in certain situations. It has not progressed that I can tell. 45k on the clock. Doesn't seem to be the U joint, more like the splines out of the gearbox.

Re: 2020 Power Wagon - Spied

So wait, they are saying 2019? Does anyone actually know? Please tell me RAM isn't pulling a chevy and doing an inbetween model... Remember the '87 - '91 Suburban, Blazer, Jimmy and Crew Cab C/K30's? New grill, lights and power mirrors was about the sum total of the delta. This is no more than a ne...

Re: Tire Feedback

^ I think you'll be pleased with the Generals. Continental will be as well. And they give you 45 days to decide. I just put the X3s on, and they are the quietest mud-ish tire I've run. Pleased with them so far as well, but the ice test is yet to be tried. 8-)

Re: Bouncing Problemos

Tires. I've been experiencing the same wallow as the OP for several months now after adding additional weight to my '16. Between the shell, rack, solar, 2nd battery, compressor, bumper, recovery gear, fridge, awning, tools and a partridge in a pear tree, I'm at 9,125 without food, water or extra fue...

OP should buy a lottery ticket.
I know, right!? I did buy one, still lost.

I read your unpleasant journey over on ExpoPort-o-let. I'll be posting up some of my findings here pretty soon, and some pics, along with what if anything they're going to do about it.

Re: New Rear Bumper?

I got my Expedition One after about 9 weeks. And no, the Park Assist doesn't work. Haven't addressed the camera yet either.

Hello from Arizona

Lurked here for a while now, decided it is time to dip my toes into the muddy water. Bought my '16 new off the lot in December of '16. Traded my '05 Dmax as it was literally falling apart at 120k. IFS and 2,500+ miles of AZ non-paved roads per year is bad mojo. My other DD is a nicely equip'd and fa...
