You guys are living in the wrong place, no safety or emission testing here in the high desert of Arizona.

Any light source will follow the inverse square law no matter how it is generated. What make or breaks vehicle LED lighting is the optics used to direct the light out put. Optics for LEDs are getting much better!!!!

Re: Diesel Power Wagon... Again..

If I ever have to replace my 06 CTD I will get an old 12 valve. Even less maint. cost than my 06. I would never get a newer one with all the environmental junk on it. The only reason I got a common rail diesel is cause it is quieter :lol: But then Trump is eliminating the EPA so maybe in the future ...

Re: Diesel Power Wagon... Again..

I agree with NTS. I'm a RTOF (retired old fart) and my suspension lifted ctd with open diff's get me anywere I need to go and back. I love the fuel mileage and towing torque. I have not noticed any more maintenance costs than my old V6 dakota other than the larger amout of oil for an oil change. I d...

Re: Duratracs have to go, need options.

I have 315-70-17 D KO2's on my diesel. Had them for about 3 years now and do plenty of rough off pavement travel for search and rescue and recreational use. I often tow a 3500+ camping trailer. The tires work well for what I do, never had them in snow since I live in central AZ. Any tire will pick u...

Re: Diesel Power Wagon... Again..

hey i just bought one! oh wait...forgot i just sold the 2012 PW. But now i have the Cummins for towing. Found out last night on a search and rescue call the 2500 Cummins can never replicate a PW's suspension. AEV can't possibly improve the flex. Suprisingly the 20's aren't too bad, but i'm still th...

Re: Octane at altitude and MPG on 6.4L

The higher the octane, the less likely to pre detonate but also less energy/volume ratio. Lower octane gas actually has more energy per gallon than high octane so if your engine will run on regular use it!

Re: I got a limp lever!!

It's probably just the cheap rubber O ring that holds the linkage on has gone missing. Easy fix and if you are handy you can modify it to make it less prone to falling off.

Re: Trail radios.......

I have a 2meter "ham" radio in my truck that I use for search and rescue. Most of the people that I wheel with also have 2 meter rigs....
I have had CB's in other trucks and found it to be pretty much useless.
