Re: Pedal commander

theres no chance that any typical ram 2500 owner wont appreciate what the unit can do. not as good as tuning, but the factory setup is shit

Re: Pedal commander

tune is always the best option. but at a price of the warranty. you know when your cruising at just the wrong speed and at just the wrong rpm and even when you put pedal to the floor, the truck wont downshift? when the pedal has 50% of the distance to cover 100% of the throttle, your little nudge, g...

Re: Pedal commander

it makes a huge improvment. the comments about not actually increasing power, or your foot can just move faster is bologna. it doesnt give you any more power, but it does make 50% throttle application read like 100% throttle and will help you modulate the power better when accelerating. when your on...

Re: Locker Bypass Rebirth

You’re added to the list. It’ll make your lockers work and stop the flashing locker lights, but I’m not sure how it will effect your SERV 4X4 light. Lets get a repost of the entire list so we can see just how popular this kit is going to be.... that retired is so hot right now. killing the game for...

Re: ARB solenoids and reliability/longevity

electronically and schematically it couldnt be easier. the issue is the longevity and reliability of these solenoids with an On-Board Air system. im going for a clippard manual switch valve if the arb fails again for no reason. i have it working right now, and disco is engaging with a vengeance. i h...

Re: Electric sway bar (smartbar) disconnect. Electric bypass

i assume if you attempted to utilize the sway bar bypass, the system would recognize it as an error, and probably lockout your lockers and give you a dash light.
if you had hardwired lockers as well, then probably not an issue..unless it triggers some limp mode or other.

Re: ARB solenoids and reliability/longevity

good chance there is a bit of moisture in their. it has a port on the bottom of the tank to drain, but is there a way to filter moisture out beforehand? or filter it before the solenoid? i am in south florida....moisture will always be present ordered a regulator anyways, to make sure the evo discon...

Re: ARB solenoids and reliability/longevity

I have arb lockers in my truck front and rear and the same setup in one of my wranglers, and have been using them for more than a decade in the Jeep. I went through so many solenoids in the first 5-6 years that it’s not even funny. The Mac valves are better quality but they shit the bed too. The on...

ARB solenoids and reliability/longevity

whats going on with this? installed an ARB solenoid directly off the 2.5 gallon 150psi tank. running my Evo MFG On Demand sway bar disconnect. worked flawlessly for a week, then crapped out. every time i would engage the switch, the valve would dump air through the exhaust vent on the solenoid. it w...

Re: Locker Bypass Rebirth

im sure they would find a way to say this caused issue with axle, steering, driveshaft, transfer case, if you ever had one... or just remove it before you ever bring it to any dealer or put it on a tow truck..... no trace.

Re: Diablosport tuner

any surging or funky driving characteristics i blame on the transmission. any transmission tuning available, im going for it. im entirely confident this 6.4 hemi has the bottom end to handle, and capacity to crank out substantially more power then you would on any typical naturally aspirated setup. ...

holy crap that is awesome. but limited in nature (referencing module to utilize factory auxiliary buttons.) It's nowhere near as flexible as an SPOD or SwitchPro that is for sure. However, it looks OEM (because it is) and is integrated into the EVIC. I have three rocker switch locations above the e...
