Re: What's your upgrade?

If you are looking for an onboard air compressor then I'd suggest the ARB dual motor / dual cylinder 13 volt compressor. It produces 90 PSI and is a 100% duty cycle compressor.

Re: 17 Power Wagon steer issue

Mine does the same in super tight turns. I'm not worried about it. It steers real well otherwise.

Re: Diesel Power Wagon... Again..

The production numbers for the PW are far too small for FCA to spend the money it would take to make a diesel PW

Re: 6.4L Break In

My 6.4 always had a "tick", I will probably try using amsoil at next oil change. The "tick" I'm hearing is something I've heard in engine sound recordings of other guys' trucks

Re: Trans recall

Checked my '16 and nothing came up. No safety recalls and no campaigns.

Seems likely to me that the issue is affecting a subset of 2017-2017 trucks

Re: Trail radios.......

I think I'm going to go ahead and get my technician license however and probably pick up a dual band radio. I think that's a great idea. If nothing else, it seems to me that there are a LOT more ham's than GMRS users. So, if that's true, it would seem much more likely that you'd be able to reach so...

Re: Trail radios.......

Yep!

Now, if only it was possible to get a vanity call sign for GMRS.... The call signs they issue are damn near "unspeakable" and really hard to remember. I was issued WQZC486. Try saying THAT quickly, LOL!!!

Re: Trail radios.......

There are new rules & regulations coming for both FRS and GMRS radio services.

As I recall, FRS radios will be allowed to run more power (2 watts as compared to the current 0.5 watts) while GMRS radios get more channels to operate on

That bumper looks awesome, can't help but imagine it on a MY17 truck with its black grille

I so badly want to head to Moab to hang out with you guys but it's not looking good in terms of getting away

Re: Limitations of the '16 PW when off-roading

Would the weight REALLY matter if it was only used offroad ? I know there would be problems running @ 70 if it was really heavy. Kinda like tires. No need to have them balanced if they are for off road only & used at low speed trail runs. Give a local driveshaft maker a call. Good point... I was im...

Re: Limitations of the '16 PW when off-roading

Just build or have someone build you a more HD driveshaft, or 2, so you have a spare. Or just have 1 really HD one built just for wheeling. It only takes about 10 minutes or less to take the rear d-shaft off. Just a suggestion. ...not a bad idea actually..... Are there *any* downsides to this, outs...

Hey buddy, this certainly does wheel a lot different than your old rig ( I can't think of too many other people who have piloted both an H1 and a power wagon on the same trails [emoji6]), so I know where you are coming from.

Re: Limitations of the '16 PW when off-roading

I agree with you 100%. They need lower gearing both in the axles & in the transmission &/or at least the transfer case. It would be so awesome if they came out with a 3 range t-case. The ability to use all 3 ranges in 2wd would be icing on the cake. I know it will never happen though. As I hear all...

Re: My trip to Moab - April 2017

zero issues on Top of the World holding the truck while in low. Just so I understand.... You found it reasonably easy to hold the truck while in low, and in D (or any forward gear) while the nose was pointed down, or the opposite? (In low, in R and the rear pointed down) AFAIK you are running 35's ...

Hi everyone,

Left Moab this morning and am cruising south to Forest Gump point and then down to Flagstaff for the night, then home tomorrow

Everything has seemed normal since I revved the engine to 4000 rpm, that seemed to force the clutch to disengage
