Re: 2020 Ram 2500 Power Wagon spied

Drove my youngest stepson's '18 2500 diesel with the air bag suspension. The truck is nice. rides nice, handles nice. And power out of the ass. He tows a couple of different trailers. A 5th wheel camper, a goose neck horse trailer, 20ft bass boat trailer, 2 jet ski trailer, and a 14,000 flat bed tra...

Re: '14 Power Wagon needs new motor at 63k... :/

This is like reading about a bad dream becoming a nightmare. :shock: 2sticky. Keep your '08 PW. Because I think you would be disappointed with the performance of the ZR2 diesel. From what I've been hearing. Mileage isn't bad. But when you put your foot down. It will trip over it's self. The response...

Re: More camper shenanigans

You must have a fancy toilet. Mine is just a slide lever, flat plastic with rubber seal. I am sure they are all a PITA to replace though. Toilet work is never fun. :roll: Got my parts in the other day. So today, I torn the toilet apart. New rubber seal, flush ball, and base gasket. Took about hour ...

Re: Recovery calculations, math made simple

We've had this discussion before. One reason the winch is derated from 15000 to 12000 is because of the winch mounts, and the other is lawyers.

Re: Control Arms

The Aliens are super stout and those brackets are ideal for sliding over rocks. I replaced a set of BDS long arms with a set of Aliens on a truck that went to Moab - zero comparison. The older BDS arms made of 2.0”x.120” DOM didn’t stand a chance and were bent like crazy I've only seen pic's of the...

Re: Control Arms

If it’s not in the budget, make are the control arm bolts are TIGHT TIGHT. My arms are totally gone but still work fine. I have sympathy for my driveshaft but otherwise it doesn’t hurt anything. If you’re buying new arms, either go proper budget and get the Thuren short arms or go for the best setu...

Re: 3G frame skid bars. Bad news!

Mine were damaged and removed when I had the fuel pump replaced. I priced out the parts, and they were about $150, but I never bothered replacing them. I like the one from DamageWagon, but that looks like it's going to be pretty expensive. From the website I posted. They are about $43.00 each. 3 of...

Re: Control Arms

I believe Carli has 2 types, a standard and a high clearance, both considered short arms. The standard are 700 and the high clearance are 950, both are 1/2” longer than stock. Thuren’s short arms are 760 I believe, they are 1/2” longer than stock and bent for better clearance. The standard Carli ar...

Re: 3G frame skid bars. Bad news!

Vintage? Seriously. Must be due to low production numbers. If 2008 is vintage, what does that make us? :angry: The bars fit 2005 to 2009. What the parts guy showed me on the computer. Is the number of times the parts get sold. And the number was ZERO. So items like this get moved to the vintage lis...

3G frame skid bars. Bad news!

Bad news for us 3G guys. The 3 skid bars under the frame are no longer being carried by Ram. I bent the chit out of one and ripped it off the frame at the front at Rausch Creek when I got hung up on the boulder. Ram now has them listed as vintage parts. The parts guy gave me a web address to go to, ...

Just wait until your toilet won't hold water and you have to replace the gasket at the ball. :roll:

Good for her. :rockon: My daughter got her BS Mathematics degree at a local college. Got both her Master's and PhD in higher education at the University of Pittsburgh. Not cheap! :shock: She is #2 at one school distinct. Just below the superintendent.

Russ, I heard of that. Mike mentioned that, too with vBulletin. Does that forum use vBulletin? Look at the bottom of their forum’s web pages, it should show which forum software they’re using.
