Re: 2nd Gen Ford Raptor

people put on 35s, never hit the dirt and blow an "HD" 66rfe transmission.

Re: 2nd Gen Ford Raptor

i wish $20k could include those parts lol! we could probably get away with that on a best gen, but i still love my 4th gen.

honestly, im still on the boat to no way in hell FCA puts in the right axles shafts, u joints, and transfer cases we need to actually abuse/feed these TRX trucks.

Re: 2nd Gen Ford Raptor

Re: Heated seat issues...

well how long after you turn it on does it get wet?

i could be sitting on the heat seater for a few minutes and ill start to sweat and not notice it until i start moving around or get out.

throw a contractor trash bag over the seat and see if its you or seat side.

Re: Noise in 66rfe transmission

Of course now...... trans failed at 24,000 on a road trip. Had to leave at dealership in las vegas and keep going in rental. Lost all forward gears with no warning. Under warranty but......rather disappointing I must say!!! Perhaps the 8 speed in the 20 model is better. Anyone have good luck with t...

Re: confused trans

some questions that we glaze over but drastically influence tire performance, and rolling resistance.... PSI of all four tires? did you come from 12 inch wide or 13 inch wide treads with the 35s? in fact what brand and tire did you come from and go to? did you get an alignment whatsoever? shift the ...

25k miles and it’s junk. Blown trans and they won’t just replace it, just keep replacing its guts. Already has a new valve body. And already got lost between reverse and drive and had no torque lockup and no throttle. Can’t understand what’s going on here, but I need it to be fixed. I have NO faith,...

they may be a tad expensive for what they are and where else the money could go, but they are reliable and quality. they work as it relates to picking up the slack of our electronic throttle systems and the piss-poor performance engineering by the MGP-EPA freaks. ive had them in sports cars, suvs, j...

Re: 37s with overland extreme questions

my 37 toyo RTs at 17 inches run smoother then the 35s did and even smoother then stock duratracs by a long shot. (if you beat on your tires, offroad often, ride in gravel often, Centramatics will do wonders for you) youll have pedal commander, intake/exhaust to deal with any loss of "performance" do...

Re: Making new tire & wheel plunge

the issue with the stock rim is purely the width of it, and accepting a wider tire, with a wider contact patch. Wider 35s or 37s deserve a wider rim to justify said tread size difference. a 12.5 tire tread contact patch will not sit correctly on a 8 inch rim....in fact, it is probably not an "approv...

if most of your driving is highway, your new MTs could potentially drive you nuts... you may be ok for a few 1000 miles but if you dont maintain perfect wear and balance, they will wallow out your eardrums. toyo RT have been great and the 35s went over 20k miles and had plenty of tread left...only i...
