Re: Heavy duty floor mats

I have tried several different mats (Mopar, Husky, Rugged Ridge) in my PW and by far the Weathertech's fit, color, quality, and durability is the best.

Airaid Intake w/Splash Guard For Sale SOLD

This 06-08 Hemi 5.7 Airaid QuickFit intake is as good as new no damage or defects whatsoever. I had a 4x4 shop in my area custom fabricate the aluminum splash guard for the OEM air box which works very well. I only had it on my truck for a few hundred miles when I replaced it with AirAid MXP kit tha...

Re: Extending the OCI in the 'Wagon

Jeeze! No offense but you're throwing away perfectly good oil. No need to change synthetic every 3K. You could easily stretch it to 5K (and 6K or more if you run a heavier weight oil to combat oil shear as the oil wears such as a 5W-30/5W-40). I'm just trying to get the absolute most I can out of t...

Re: Extending the OCI in the 'Wagon

You guy are nuts!

Since my engine was broken-in I have used Mobile 1 5w-20 and a Mopar or Wix filter every 3k, I get everything at walmart for under $45.

It seams like you are sacrificing engine to save the oil, shouldn't you be sacrificing the oil to save the engine!

Re: A/C questions (one PW, one not)

I had the same thing with my PW as you did. Loud clunk when the clutch engaged. I didn't wait for it to crap out though. I found an AC clutch on ebay for $75 shipped. Pretty easy to change if you are somewhat mechanically inclined. Works like a charm now!! Good luck It sounds like the other vehicle...

Re: Coil Install How Hard?

When I did mine all we did was put the truck on the lift and let the one side of the axle drop down enough to get the stock coil out. We used pieces of wood (2x4) to hold the opposite side up. It dropped down far enough that it just slid right out. Had to muscle the new one in a bit on the drivers ...

Re: Coil Install How Hard?

That's because they pull everything off that's attached to the front axle so it can drop all the way down, no need to take the shock out just unbolt the bottom. It's the pulling off everything that seams way over kill to me, especially if you don't have a shop with lift and all the tools! I am still...

Coil Install How Hard?

I was thinking of getting a new set of coils and installing them myself? Below are the Dodge shop manual instructions which seam way to complicated, is there an easier way? REMOVAL 1. Raise and support the vehicle. Position a hydraulic jack under the axle to support it. 2. Paint or scribe alignment ...

Re: Front Diff Change and Carli Diff Guard Install

One more thing----some of our veteran wrenchs might chime in------I looked up the torque specs in the manual, and it said 30ft/ibs. My cover had never been off before, and it was tightened to WAY MORE than 30ft/ibs----more like 75; so I was not really concerned with the 30ft/lbs torque spec----it a...

Re: Bilstein 7100 Shocks.

I have progressed up through various levels of shocks in my PW and here is what I noticed: OEM Bilstein's PW specific valving: - compliant and absorbent but not overly soft - some noticeable side to side sway - when pushed hard they go right to the bump-stops - they fade when pushed hard for a long ...
