Re: Let's Talk Snorkels

I'm curious as well how they do in snow, as I know for a fact how bad the factory air box is in heavy snow. In defense of the factory system I was going thru some pretty deep drifts, but this is the first vehicle I've driven that ingested that much snow (for whatever reason my 3rd gen 1/2tons never...

Re: lockers acting up need help

Di-electric grease/ fluid film/ Crown undercoating ------make sure all winch and smart bar connections get liberal applications of fluid film twice a year, and crowned yearly. Di-electric'd everything when new-----------zero issues in 7 years! :D

Re: 32 Spark Plugs

I would stick with the Champion Coppers! I tried Bosh Platniums in my last truck----and it ran like crap! I had to take them out after a week and replace them with Copper Plus again. It was an expensive lesson. The guy a the part store says he has had dozens of guys come in and relay my experience. ...

Re: Dodge Off Road Steering Brace

I've been waiting for them to come out with this for factory boxes since the spring, so another 6 weeks won't be a big deal. I really liked their single sided design---glad to here it is performing for you as I thought it would.

Re: The 2014 blues

Mac Lang in Sundridge is a very good dealer, or if you want to come this far north, I can PM you the phone number for the owner of Mazzuca Chrysler--he's a friend of mine.

P.S----If you make a deal on a 2014, I call dibs on you rock rails! LOL!

Yes---I was overloaded. He was feathering a bit more to top me up, and about 2/3 of a yard fell in one shot! I was only about 4 miles from home by back roads, so no big deal. Wait till I upload the picks with 80 rolls of sod! lol!
