Free Stuff

Cleaning out the barn and came across this stuff. Kinda doubt anyone wants it, but just in case I thought I'd throw it out there.

Re: New Ignition Wires?

The 03-05 5.7 Hemi's had the crossover wires. 06 and up have the same coil firing both plugs for that cylinder.

New Ignition Wires?

I have about 70K miles on the truck so it's about time to change the spark plugs again and I was thinking about new wires also. Does anyone have, or know about using short wires instead of the over the top stock set up? https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B004PLBQXA?tag=acr-pre-chr-us-20&ascsubtag=1ba00-010...

Welcome,
Not only were the 05 trucks sequentially numbered, they have a panty hook also!
I got my truck new in 2005 and am still loving it.

Re: Rear Output Shaft Seal/Dust Cover

I replaced the seal/dust shield yesterday, not too hard other than climbing under the truck a bunch. Before I put the new seal in I spent some time looking for something to use as a plug in case the rear drive shaft fails and has to be removed. Ultimately I found that a butane can I refill lighters ...

Re: Battery question

This is what I have: 120 watt foldable solar panel on a frame that fits on my Trac Rac rack. The frame breaks down and is stored in a length of 3' ABS pipe on the rack. The controller is removable and stored in a duffle with the cables and stuff. Very low profile, wind proof, and helps keep the ARB ...

Re: Rear Output Shaft Seal/Dust Cover

I saw on You Tube somebody used an ABS pipe cap to drive the seal in. Don't have any 3/4 " drive sockets, but I can always do what I did when changing out my steering box- went to Harbor Cheapo Tools, bought the big socket set, used the one socket I needed, then returned the set. I have also used a ...

Re: Rear Output Shaft Seal/Dust Cover

"This is a great deal on the miller/mopar seal driver for this specific seal"
The $20.00 shipping is a bit hard to take. I probably will make something to use.
Amazon has a decent price on a SKF seal

Rear Output Shaft Seal/Dust Cover

I noticed that the dust cover is cracked and figured I ought to replace it before the seal fails. Seems like a relatively easy job, but I wanted to check and see if any one has done it and if there are any tips or tricks I should know.

Guys that have had vibration/noise complaints, what kind of rod ends did you use? The cheap ones without liners, steel ball on steel rod end? Or did you pay up for ball joints with Teflon liners?

Re: xfer case linkage

You will find that a lot more noise and vibration will now be transferred into the cab without the rubber grommets to isolate the metal parts. I know that at least one person on this forum went back to the grommets because of the noise, but I put up with it because the grommets failed at a bad time ...
