Re: Pictures...

At the bottom of the post editor page (below the "save draft / preview / submit" buttons), there is an area that defaults to an "options" tab. There is another tab called "attachments".

Re: A Tale of Diagnostic Woe

Never came up. I have Amsoil in it and service records if it matters. Short of sludging, I doubt they even have a way of checking.

Re: Camp Chef Pro 90X

Looks like you could cook a lotta beans on that thing. The red fold-out wings look pretty flimsy, I wouldn't put too much weight on them. From the pic I found, I can't tell if those are bolts or rivets holding them on. On Amazon it only has 13 reviews, but they're all 5-star. Looks like people love ...

Re: Low_Sky's 2015 Power Wagon Laramie

I settled on Maxima Racing Shock Fluid. The Amsoil viscosity index is around 210. Maxima VI is around 370. Pour point is a little higher for the Maxima, but still should be adequate for the average temps here.

Re: Rear Shock Question

So... I appreciate the feedback but I'm hearing factory shocks are junk and I need a good set of $500+ shocks... I like it, not sure the wife will! ;) Tell her it's for safety. The handling on these junk Bilsteins is unpredictable, and they may fail AT ANY TIME. Think of the children, Vanished.

Re: Rear Shock Question

When I killed my first set of OEM fronts, I let the dealership replace them with OEM units under warranty. No way in heck I'd pay out of my own pocket to put the same set of Bils back on the truck.

Re: Low_Sky's 2015 Power Wagon Laramie

Stage 1 can feel like stage 4 in the cold. I did some re valving with don on his 2.5s and changed the fluid to amsoil shock therapy light. I started at a stage 2. Now I'm at like a stage 0.75 Neil, I'll probably be picking your brain about valving and oil when it starts cooling off this winter. I g...

What valving did you go with?
Stage 2 plus a little extra rebound. Marcus says at cold Alaska temps the stage 2 is going to feel closer to stage 3 for you southerners.

Re: Hardwired Lockers with OEM Knob

BLM Rig, do you know if G/H are a common ground, or a floating ground that's only grounded when C/D are hot? If G/H are common and always grounded, one should be able to tap only into C/D right by the smart bar and save a lot of wiring. Would diodes be necessary to keep from back feeding +12V into t...

Re: Fabfour Grumper

The thing that bothers me most about it is that because it's all flat sheet metal and angles, it doesn't match the lines around the headlights and hood. When it's black, it kinda hides it, but the white really makes it stand out. Naaaaaasty.

Additional info for anyone looking to do this. The front axle vent comes off the driver's side of the axle and is clipped to the driver side shock tower. You can reach the end through fender liner. I added on to this line with a 3/8" barbed coupler and 3/8" fuel hose. The original plastic cap fit in...

Re: Winch rope extension question

Lol, I went into my local West Marine when I saw them put that on sale a month or two ago. Had them try to get a hold of the store that had it. When my guy never called me back I assumed they had a less-than-usable quantity. If it looks too good to be true. . .

Re: Fabfour Grumper

I'm lost as to why anyone would spend $3,000 on that thing(not including the windsheld "vicowl"). It looks retarded, adds unnecessary weight, reduces airflow to the radiators and worsens aerodynamics.
