Re: Max tire size for chains

I think I'll be keeping my stock tires. The most any shop will give me on trade for my stock tires (with 3,500 miles on them) is $400, and nobody wants to buy things on Craigslist where I'm from. Hopefully I'll have no issues with the duratracs... If there are any Jeeper Facebook groups in your are...

Re: Front and rear diff guards

Order black powder coat, the cheesy arachnid or skeleton parts motif will be harder to see.

Nothing else out there except for beefier diff covers and Gale Banks is tearing that market a new one right now.

Re: Locker Bypass

If/when my smartbar dies, I’ll do the EVO manual disconnect. I don’t want swaybar control all the time bad enough to give up working on-the fly control with the limits imposed by Ram. The air power disconnect is on my radar, but I wouldn’t put in an onboard air system just to run a swaybar. Sent fro...

Reach under the bumper? The swaybar isn’t hard to get to.

With proper tire pressure, my third shock doesn’t do anything anyway.

I just dropped my pressures to 48 front and 43 rear for DD. With all of the suspension work people are doing with the 4g trucks what are you doing with the 5th shock? I was thinking about what I want to do in the near future but I haven't found a post yet that deals with the shock associated with t...

35x12.50r17 Toyos with chains will rub on the radius arm and sway bar, but not too bad. Just don't turn full lock.

Fed up!!! (More dura trash)

Re mileage.... A larger, heavier tire takes more energy to start rotating. That makes mileage go down. A larger tire travels farther per revolution. A truck on larger tires goes down the road with fewer engine RPM given the same speed and drive ratio. That makes mileage go up. If you do more city dr...

Re: Kill-switch for electronic nannies

7". The relay I have handy has a waterproof end and doesn't fit. I'd rather mount it to the side of the fuse box since my box is notched anyway. Interrupting a 12 ga. 40 amp circuit requires using 40 amp rated components. Unfortunately no one makes a waterproof SPDT 40 amp normally closed relay tha...

If you mean the little yellow one, that would be power in for the relay.

Because you still want that circuit fused when hooligan mode is off.

I’ve just been popping the hood and raiding the fuse box, but that looks really clean. Nice work!

Not bad, but just color and wheels, right? It's like calling blue the "Sky edition." If it had a Hellcat engine or something interesting, it could be a special edition... Exactly. “Limited edition”.

Re: Kicker shock annoyance

Put a ratchet strap around the shock so you can compress it to a convenient length. You can also raise/lower the axle to change how things line up.

You basically have to be doing something ultra stupid to get abs to engage on dry pavement in a newer ram truck. It’s not something that’s easy or safe to accomplish really. There’s so much computer manipulation going on to optimize braking performance that it’s difficult to get the truck out of it...

Hi I’m really new to all of this. As I understand this tricks your transfer case into thinking it’s in 4 low? If so does it change into 4 low mapping for the engine?
