Re: 2018 Power Wagon Brake Issues

I have ssbc 2 piston calipers on my 99 1500 and they do work great. Had them for about 12-13 years. Never had a problem. Just grease the slides once a year. Big improvement for that truck.

Re: 2.5s versus 3" Kings

It really is worth it. I was worried about going stage 3 with mine. Didn't want a log wagon, I have one like that. Wish I would have gone 4 now. This is the first time "it rides better than stock" is factually accurate.

So I just installed my thuren kit with King shocks about a month ago and everything is better than I expected. Looking over some things tonight I noticed some scoring on one of the front shocks. Anyone have an opinion on this? I have a set of Kings that r about 15 years old for reference and they do...

Re: Trans Issues - 2016

It's not a Frankenstein trans. It's a HD version of the 545rfe. It's a good transmission. My coworkers nextdoor build it. My good friend has the job of tearing down warranty returns and documenting the failures. Most of the issues found are related to debris found in the trans causing something to h...

Front locker plug

So when installing my thuren springs I managed to forget to unplug my front locker. as u can guess I pulled the wires out of the plug and broke the plastic. I replaced the harness and I'm back in business but I wondered if anyone has researched the plastic plug it's self? I'd like to find one and re...

Re: Polishing over decals

Clay bar will keep them clean. I really wouldn't worry about getting in the lettering. Just tape off around the decals. Doesn't have to be perfect as u will never get right up next to objects. Within a inch for me is acceptable. I just finished a 2 stage polish to get scratches out and it makes a wo...

Re: Trans Issues - 2016

Seppw, what issues are you having? just checking to see if what I am experiencing with mine is the same. I have an annoying issue in traffic at 30 mph or below where the trans wants to hold back instead of accelerating and it wants to hang up coming out of third and fourth. I am also getting a nast...

Re: Trans Issues - 2016

For u guys that r complaining about the loud and harsh down shift while decelerating I had similar issues. I bought my truck with 40k on it and was loud and seemed to hang up when downshifting. I simply ordered some redline trans fluid and new filters and instantly it was better. Seemed to still hav...

It's also hard on the plastic and rubber components.
