Re: 2012 New to Me!

Used a Hypertech speedometer calibrator to adjust for tire size, and I ended up getting better performance and mileage. The truck feels just like it did prior to the tire change. I also got sick of the squat when towing the camper, so I put on some Airlift Loadlifter 5000 ultimates with the internal...

Re: New from nevada

I am partial to that year PW myself. Welcome to the forum. I started 2 years ago with a black 2012, and I have been steadily making improvements over time. These things are addictive, but they are well worth the wait. I wanted one for a long time, and I kept talking myself out of it. Now I am having...

Re: 2012 New to Me!

I had to remove my sliders as the Aluminess body mounting system did not work well. They sent me some parts to attempt a fix, but it would still be body mounted. I have decided against that, so I am going to have the Aluminess sliders modified and mounted to the body in a similar fashion to the Whit...

Re: Engine Oil Temperature

I have a 2012 with a 5.7 hemi, and I noticed my temps run high especially when towing in the summer over the Rockies where I live. When I am towing in the mountains, I regularly run oil temps around 220F. I have gone up to 269F when running the "Ike Guantlet" up to the Eisenhower tunnel. I was nervo...

Re: Sliders

I have since talked to the guys at Aluminess and they agreed to send me a kit they made to address this issue. Hopefully, it will address the issue, and I can get the sliders stop rattling. I will keep you posted.

Re: Sliders

Thanks for the info guys. I was thinking the same thing about mounting options. Either frame or body but not both. The holes in the body are there already for mounting normal running boards or steps, so there won't be new holes. I think they come from the factory covered in tape.

Re: Sliders

I had Aluminess sliders on my 2012 prior to purchasing it. I have scraped them a few times on rocks during some off roading like you describe. I recently hit my passenger side on a rock, and the slider is now making a noise over bumps. All of the bolts are tight, but I believe the sheet metal they m...

Re: 2020 Power Wagon - Spied

Not a fan of the dial shifter especially when off road. I had one in a 2015 1500 and it was the one thing that really bugged me about the truck. It felt like the way the shifter should look on a small eastern European car. I like the 8 speed transmission, winch, and frame. Other than that I am not t...

Glad you found the info you're looking for. If you ever run into an issue with finding something on the site, I would recommend calling Amsoil.
