Engine Block Heater Cord location?

Maybe I'm just blind and can't see it. Less likely I think would be it got skipped when built. Anyone else with a 2014-2015 get the block heater option and willing to point me to the right spot? I hadn't had a need for it yet but it just occurred to me I had never seen it and can't locate it using t...

Did the tire dealer give you any flack about putting those 37" tires on 8" wheels?
I've been wanting to run certain 35" inch tires on my factory rims but they always start at 8.5" minimum rim width.

Re: 6.4 hemi tick?

I have finally been driving my truck since I bought it since I'm nowrecovered from my knee surgery. I noticed my truck has developed a tick.

Re: How to change TPMS default threshold

Youre referring to changing the value on all the tires? My 4th gen has a light load setting but only for the rest. Light load has a preset of 45 psi for the rear tires. Do you have an actual button or switch to change the rear pressure setting, and what year is your truck? I probably spoke incorrec...

Re: How to change TPMS default threshold

Hmmm, my problem is I already have 315/70/17 tires with a max pressure of 50psi. So I wouldn't be able to inflate the tires to 65psi to do this as the steps indicate. JBM Power Wagon, i happened across another TPMS post on another forum that may give you some hope. It might be that the initial pres...

Re: How to change TPMS default threshold

Assuming the EVIC is similar to the one I had on my Jeep Grand Cherokee, the alert should be clear-able by disconnecting the battery for a minute. Assuming you have already placed the new value in the computer, it should conduct the next start-up check against the new value and not trigger an alert,...

I just got new wheels and tires for my 2015 PW. I had Toyo Open Country RT tires (35X12.5R18LT) and Fuel Assault 18" wheels with an 01 offset (5.000 in) put on. I worked with Chris and Tim at High Country Performance 4X4 in Denver to pick them out. Both had experience with Power Wagons and were ver...

Re: How to change TPMS default threshold

Thanks. Just to clarify, the 50 PSI listed in the steps is the figure I decided to use. It could as easily be set to 45 PSI or any number is available through the programming computer. By going with 50 PSI, I won't see a warning activation until a tire dips to 40 PSI.

Gents, Thanks for the replies. No offense taken on the suggestions to "build my own" on the various websites.

Re: Do you own a 2014/15 Tradesman PW?

Hello all, I would like to ask those of you who own a 2014/2015 PW in the Tradesman trim level a few questions. Does this trim have the "in-floor" storage just in front of the rear seats? Does this trim have the "fold flat" floor under the rear seats? What other niceties do you forego by choosing t...

How to change TPMS default threshold

Hi All, I'm new to the forum but figured this might help some of the guys with the Gen 4 trucks. The Gen 3 (and I think prior as well) have a switch that allows the TPMS pressure setting to be flipped between a high inflation pressure and a lower one. Unfortunately, the Gen 4 trucks do not have this...

Re: "Welcome Thread"

Hi All. I just got my new truck on Friday and I really like it so far. I went with the Brilliant Black Pearlcoat. I was kind of unsure how it would compare with the Gloss Black that was discontinued earlier this year, but I have to admit, I really like it.

So I'm a little disappointed to say the least. Brought the truck in after owning it for less than 24 hours. The salesman, the mechanic and the service manager all had a turn with it.
