I have been looking at those Outdoor RV trailers. How do you like it so far? Do you feel like it is too much for the PW? I live in CO, and I would like to get a camper similar in size to yours, so I wanted to know if you felt like it was a good combo?
So far it has been pretty good. I think after driving the same engine in the 1500 with the 8 speed transmission and a 3.92 gave me a different perspective of how fast the truck should be. This one definitely feels much heavier driving, but it is about 1,000lbs more according to the scales. I haven't...
Did a full ATF fluid exchange today. I put in the Signature Series ATF-4 from Amsoil. The truck seems a bit smoother on shifts etc. I was pretty happy with the trip out to Moab this month. I took the family out for spring break and pulled my 5,000lb trailer as well. The truck did ok, but it was a li...
Changed my oil over to Amsoil 5w30 Signature Series for my upcoming trip to Moab. My truck runs smoother now especially on start up and now there is no tick! I am going to switch my transmission fluid over to the Amsoil Signature Series ATF next. Just need to figure out how to flush it all without m...
We ran them with nitrogen at work, and my wife's car used to have it. It never made much of a difference. It was marginally better at keeping a stable pressure. I would just check them once and a while when you get big temp changes.

Let me know how the springs, control arms and 35's work out. I may do the same at some point. Congrats on the purchase! I dig the old LE vehicles.
Forgot to mention, I installed my DodgeOffroad steering brace this afternoon. It was not to bad given my relative novice mechanical abilities. I really enjoy working on this truck, and I look forward to getting better at it. My steering was pretty good to begin with, but this made it feel just like ...
Thanks. I really like the color too. I had a K&N CAI on my 1500 with the Hemi, and it was quite loud if you got on the skinny pedal. When I towed my camper in the mountains, it was pretty loud too. Going up some of the passes out here was a little annoying. So far, the Volant one is a MikeKey descri...

First, let me start by saying I have a 2012 PW with the 5.7 Hemi. I previously had a 2015 and 2004 1500's with the 5.7 Hemi. I ran 5w30 in the 2004 which was the spec oil at the time. When I got the 2015, it was 5w20. I live in Colorado, and I drive and tow at higher elevations. The oil cap on my cu...
Installed a Volant CAI with a Donaldson PowerCore dry filter today. It is not much louder than the stock box, but it feels like it is a bit smoother and faster on acceleration. It is very nice looking too! Picked up a DodgeOffRoad steering brace that I will try to install when I get a chance. I am s...

Have you ever seen anyone offer the 2012 Red/Black decals in a different color? I was wanting to replace all the red on my 2012 with Blue logos. I was going to go for a "thin blue line" theme with my black truck. I talked to a body wrap place and they were going to look for similar fonts etc. Let me...

Good to hear some more tanker stories. I spent my time as a hatch plug in my M1A1 back years ago. I miss those beasts, but they are a bear to get out when you manage to get one stuck!
I grew up in North Dakota and started my driving at 14 with a 2 wheel drive F150. It stays cold and icy there pretty much all winter. That being said, I run 285 70 17 Duratracs on my 2012 and they seem to work very well in the snow. I tested them during elk hunting in the mountains of Colorado where...
I like the Amsoil brand, so I became a dealer after I changed my diff fluid. Let me know if you want to get some, and I can get you hooked up. They seem to make quality products and I like those types of things, so now I can help other guys out with oil and associated stuff. I am slowly switching al...
They bolt to the same holes on the body as normal steps. This one had them on it when I got it. I was thinking about an S&B too....just waiting on some more funds. Do you think it is worth putting one on? Some of the other posts said they decrease low end torque. I had a K&N on my 1/2 ton and it see...
Sweet! I am waiting for us to get snow here. Then I want to test out my chains! I got to do some snow driving during hunting season, but it has been dry since then. Looks like fun!
It is a Superflow MV-89G. It was $129 and it seems to work very well. It takes about 20 minutes total for me to air up all four tires from about 25psi to 60psi. I wanted to try it before dumping a ton of money on another brand. There is one just like it that is silver in color that got good reviews,...
I read a bunch of the posts on the forum about differentials, fluids, covers, etc. so I decided to switch over to Amsoil 75W90 in the front and 75W110 in the rear. I also added some filter mags in each. I cleaned off a bunch of metal goop from the front and rear locker magnets, and it seemed to spee...
