Thanks for the kind words, guys. My buddy in WA has some trails near his house, so I'm finally going to take it out wheeling this weekend. I'm pretty excited, but I have to play it safe. That's just the start of a 3500 mile road trip. Can't afford to tear anything up.

These trucks can really take a lot stock man just watch your speed over rough terrain and your approach and break over angles but other than that they kick it offroad p.wagon ain't all hype. Try to use the lockers a bit at least the rears more you use em faster they seem to work

That is now a bearing. The axle mount heim joint now has a grease fitting. I position it facing down to give me more room to grease. Also changed out the straight zerk fitting for a 90deg. zerk fitting. And it's a bigger heim joint.

In the pictures. It looks like the zerk fitting is touching. But it has almost a 1/4" of clearance.
What happened to the old style Carli track bar? Bushing issue? And are both frame side and axle side, 16mm or 14mm?

I love this build! We are retiring in few months and are going to fulltime in a 17ft Casita. We upgraded from a 2012 Ram 1500 with the same mods as you had in the suspension to our 2007 reg cab PW.

Holy shit man,,,, I read your complete build YEARS AGO on the Trailblazer build.... You did a great job on that rig, and really took the time and built that trailblazer platform,,,, as I don't think that anyone had done a vehicle like the one before. Funny how small of a world it is!!!!! I think I even watched a few Videos of that rig in action... Again,,,, Years ago.

Welcome to the PW world, a much better platform for your needs (as I can see from the pictures)

Truck looks great!!!!!

Ha! Thanks man. Yeah it was an interesting platform to work with. Not ideal by any means, but unique for sure. It started our passion for Overlanding and wheeling though. :D

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Like I said, we use an ipod 99% of the time. Never in one spot long enough to listen to the radio. That being said, I ran this same antenna on my 1500 and it was ok when we still lived in Tampa. But I noticed it was kind of sub par when we left the metro area.

Thanks, I had one on my 2010 1500. I still have it. Didn't fit the 2015. With the larger screen I think the phones would be over the screen with the mount.

Hey MikeKey, looking good!

I notice your PW doesn't have the tow mirrors, yet your old 1500 did. Any particular reason for this? Which one do you like better? Can you see around the TT good enough without them? Thanks!

It just didn't have them. I've survived. I'd prefer tow mirrors.

And I haven't found anyone with power folding tow mirrors for sale yet. 1AAuto used to have them, but they haven't had them on their site in awhile. Supposedly there was an issue with the aftermarkets. They said they'd have them by the end of May. :angry: I am holding out for as long as possible to get power folding tow mirrors. But if it comes down to it, I might have to get manual folding.

Dang, should have swapped them off your 1500.

So in your opinion the tow mirrors are better? My salesman is trying to talk me out them... says the smaller ones are easier to look out of and stick out just about as far... far enough to see around his trailer just fine. Hmmmmm, I think he's trying to sell me a truck...

He may be one of those people that adjust their mirrors so 2/3 of the view is filled with the back of the vehicle. My FD is full of them. They don't realize that the back end of the truck WILL FOLLOW YOU, and you don't need to see it, so it's best if the mirrors adjust out far enough to see around it or the trailer.

I heard stories of bad vibrations in aftermarket mirrors. Maybe that was the problem.

You can see around the trailer enough. But I prefer the large convex on the bottom that the tow mirror provides. There is no convex on my current mirrors.

I put an aftermarket tow mirror on my 06 because it was waaaaay cheaper than a factory one and that damn thing vibrated so much it was absolutely worthless. After that I told myself I would never buy an aftermarket one again.

Vee wrote:I had aftermarket tow mirrors on my 1500 and had good luck with them. No real issue with vibration. Mine were not powerfolding, but had heat, puddle light and turn signal. Olyelr, I would hold out for tow mirrors. I hated my non tow mirrors. Full convex mirror on the passenger side is a pain to back a trailer.

I located the truck (for my salesman :roll: ) in another state and they are doing a dealer trade. They said they would trade em out for me if I want.

That was one of his beef's with the tow mirrors, was that convex mirror. Does it get in the way at all when you are using them without them being up in the tow mode, or is there enough of the flat mirror for normal driving?

No, I havnt driven one since my '06 hahaha. The last two brand new vehicles I have bought I never even test drove one or been in one before hahaha. They will swap the mirrors for me if I dont like em.


Alrighty, I'm done mucking up MikeKeys build thread. Sorry about veering off with my nonsense. Get back to the mods!
