Re: Digital Dash display???

The cluster was replaced today under warranty. Allegedly this was caused by low voltage, probably from the extended winching event last week. Anyone else ever have this issue??

Digital Dash display???

Soo, I used the winch the other day pulling out a friend who was in a serious bind. While winching, the dash lights, radio and cab lights went pitch black. They were out for a few seconds. When everything came back up, the digital display was crooked. I can't figure out how to post pictures, I'll ha...

Re: What to do when you break your drive shaft?

so all of the driveshaft talk has me wondering. Is there a slip yolk eliminator available for our truck? Does anyone have aftermarket shafts they run?

Re: She's sick : (

Well, I got it back, finally! I had the alignment done to the specs mentioned on Thuren(sp?) website, it drives straight as an arrow. The dealer sent me home with two gallons of anti-freeze. It took one and a half of those once it cooled down. I drove it and it went down a little bit, but to an acce...

Re: She's sick : (

that makes sense. On the wife's Jeep, I filled it between the min/max line and its been fine - no purging or anything. I'll probably do the same with mine. I'll post up what I find today! Y'all have a great and happy Monday! : )

Re: She's sick : (

I got it back, NOT HAPPY at all! According to the paperwork, the airbag recall was done. The EGR cooler had an internal leak(PN 4627647-AF) and they "topped the coolant back off. Well, um, the reservoir low, low enough it doesn't even make it to the MIN line. I had ball joint issues, they are sealed...

Re: Why are there so many newer PWs being traded in so early

I also have a '15 PW. There is not many upgrades available, but I like it, it does what I need it to do. My "heavy towing" is a 16' utility trailer with four four-wheelers on it. I wish I could find headers that weren't an arm and a leg and I'd like to upgrade to 4.88s and 35s, but tires have to wea...

sounds normal to me, but I came from a '12 Power Stroke, runs fine to me. Oil was normal, it gets checked religiously after the last oil issue I had with it.

Re: She's sick : (

I ran it all day yesterday - grocery shopping, running errands for the wife, drop off/pick up kids from events. She ran hot 218 most all day, never could find a drip/drop or anything. I searched high and low for a leak and/or chalkiness. None found. : ( It'll be alright, it has a warranty, right? : )

Well, I got my airbag recall letter today, so since I was off I went to the dealership to set an appointment. I got the appointment set, the service writer is walking around the truck and smells anti-freeze(mind you, I've been complaining about smelling it to them for a while). He opens the hood, it...
