Re: Patriot Campers Off Road (PTOR) RT25 SUPERam

This explains a lot. A lot of the stuff I've found on YouTube is content created by Aussies. I've been following this guy named Ronny Dahl. He drives a Land Cruiser 79 diesel. Ronny's channel is legit. 4WD Action is also pretty good, but it's a big time advertisement for the sponsors, but what do y...

Re: Patriot Campers Off Road (PTOR) RT25 SUPERam

This truck is for sale in AUSTRALIA, mates. They have some wacky rules about what they are and aren't allowed to do to vehicles down there. New Ram 2500's are priced about $150k AUD (just took a quick look online, don't know how flexible prices are down there). So this truck has about $65k AUD in m...

Re: Pro Cal Disaster 2018

WARNING!!! DO NOT buy the Procal for your 2018. After the first one did not work, they sent another. It stuck my truck in limp mode and have to wait weeks to get into the shitty dealer. No speedo, no odometer, no back up lines, over heating, no low range, have to trick into 4x4 by starting while in...

Re: Locker Issues....

If you wanna troubleshoot lockers, it may help to put the truck up on jack stands. Turn the locker switch, if it doesn’t lock right away go spin a tire on that axle by hand and it should lock right up (just needs a few degrees rotation). If it won’t lock up like that, you really have a problem. Sent...

Where's your winch cable?
They ship zip tied to the drum and most dealers don’t put the winch hook on. I think they don’t know where the hook is hiding or don’t know there’s a winch and wonder what the big hook is for.

Re: 17x10 Katla wheel on PW

Not sure if you’ll get into the fender liner/pinch weld with 35s, but certainly would if you went to 37s. -16mm offset is pretty far out there.

Seems like AEV designed this wheel to support their 37/40” tire Prospector and fender flare sales.

Re: First Ram

If you want to fix the TPMS light, you need an AEV Procal and a trip to the dealer for them to follow some simple instructions. The Procal also corrects for tire size and a couple other tricks (don’t need the dealer trip for that), and if you put 35” or larger tires on the truck it’s something you’l...

Low_Sky's Build - 2015 Power Wagon Laramie

What valving did you get? I need cold weather valving. I got stage 2 “with a little extra rebound”. I asked to have the shocks shipped dry and I filled them myself with 7 wt Maxima, which has a vastly better viscosity index than King’s oil. Loving the stage 2 so far. With less than 20 psi in the ti...

Re: 2015 Power Wagon locker bypass

I wonder if telling the truck it’s in 4LO (bypassing) when in 2HI is forcing the CAD to lock up faster/harder/differently than shifting into 4HI or 4LO normally.

Re: Removal of rear sway bar?

After installing my 2.5” King Thuren kit, I test drove without the rear sway bar. There was a noticeable small amplitude sway that I think was within the front sway bar dead spot, and not great enough that the shocks could damp it fast enough for my liking. I made DIY spacers, got longer bolts, put ...

It’s the same style small, press-in center cap that’s been on them since they made the last wheel change. Doesn’t cover the lug holes, just fills center bore of the wheel.

Get the Cummins mega and just do arb lockers and a Thuren or Carli torsion swaybar along with whatever suspension floats your boat. A mercenary bumper will fit a large frame warn winch without sticking out a half mile. If you go with a 3500 the leaf spring rear allows fitment of 3” shocks/bypasses ...

Barring finding an actual part number, can you get it to a Fastenal or Grainger and just measure it for a replacement?

I've always gone rock sliders on a truck, but I'll admit... these power steps are really nice and I don't want to lose them. I don't see myself doing too much true "wheeling" so I'm going to hold off for now. The Randy Ellis sliders are interesting, but I worry about drilling down on the rocker wit...
