Re: My 2014 build

Man I really dig the overall look of that bumper. I dont really care for the aesthetics of the large rectangle opening for the winch cable, but I understand why it is there. Kudos!!!!!!

Reloader, has the dealer brought up anything about you doing the oil changes and not them, and using something other than the mopar oil? This is one of the most persistent, never really thought out "I don't want to void my warranty claims" people cite on the internet about not changing their oil th...

Re: 37" tires with 4.10 for those who do have

Hit up Chris Sisseck over on offroad power wagon. As much as you disdain FB, he's been through his 2016 twice now. First with Nitro gears, then Yukon's. He literally did a full swap on the ground next to my trailer in Moab. Chris will know. Used to be a service tech. Helped us all get part numbers ...

Thanks fellas.

What would I use to sand them down with, just some fine grit sandpaper?

David, the fluid film comment made me lol, although it could certainly be the culprit!

Brakes squealing

Anyone have issues with their brakes squealing during light to moderate braking? They dont squeal at all with no braking or hard braking. Under 20k miles and the pads and rotors look like brand new. Seems to only happen once they warm up a bit. Im at a loss, and it is getting extremely annoying.

Depends on how much hassle you want it it gets screwed up. Lets say I pay someone to do it and it gets screwed up, how much hassle will it be getting them to fix it right? Depends on the shop's honesty wouldn't it? "You didn't follow the break-in procedure" Lot's of horror stories out there. But I'...

Will do. The warranty saved me money on the valvetrain issues but the hassle is only worth it if something expensive needs replaced/fixed as was the case for me. Agreed. I have gone back and forth with myself trying to determine if I should keep the lifetime warranty or not. Between worrying about ...

The egr is not covered by warranty at 3 plus years and 55k. I’m going to order it and replace myself in the next few weeks I suppose. Please keep us posted on how the replacement goes. Even with the lifetime warranty and under 20k miles on mine, I think I would still rather do it myself than have t...

This surging you are talking about... you mean like a shudder type feeling under those driving circumstances? I have read a few or more threads about this, and I have never seen anyone who has pinpointed the root cause or had it remedied. My truck does it as well ('16). It is annoying AF. Pretty muc...

Re: 2.5s versus 3" Kings

I would never go back to 2.5’s but I use my truck all the time for play and work. 3.0’s ride smoother than comparably valved 2.5’s while also having more bottom out resistance, like Colibri said. If you’re asking if you need 3.0’s, you don’t even need 2.5’s. But ‘need’ is a terrible word and antith...
