Re: Abel Components locker bypass kit help

I have a 2013, but may be similar. Inside cab, one connector goes to module, other goes to locker/swaybar control knob. You should be able to pop the control knob out of the dash. Disconnect the OE connector (no longer needed) and connect the wire connector coming from the Abel control module. Might...

Re: Abel Components locker bypass kit help

If you have the new version that totally bypasses the smart bar for lockers and swaybar, it is designed to install under the dash. It doesn't T in to the harness on the passenger side. One wire runs straight to the dash control. The remainder go through a provided firewall grommet where it splits of...

Re: 5.7 exhaust manifold issues again

I paid my mechanic a pretty penny to replace mine with stainless. Be ready to weld on some nuts to get the broken pieces out. At least a couple of mine were busted, or busted upon removal.

Re: RAMala Anderson's

Welcome. Seems like you've done some research and are on tte right track.37s, sliders and diff guards are definitely first priorities. Maple Offroad is another option for the slider, but can't go wrong with either.

Re: First service - any recommendations

Get a large tube of dielectric grease. You have lockers, swaybar disco and winch now. Pop the connections at the axle and smart bar and give them a little grease from time to time. They are a known failure point due to water / dirt / salt infiltration. Winch controller connector too. I have a new co...

Re: 40s on a 2010-2013

Good luck getting taller gears for the AAM 10.5 rear diff. I'm thinking you need the AEV fenders to fit 40s and potentially aftermarket front bumper for clearance. Just to fit 37s on my '13 I had my rear axle perches modded to move my axles back 1.5" on the OE spring pack so they wouldn't contact th...

Re: Swaybar disconnect killing battery?

Have a buddy with a 2011 PW who is dealing with his battery draining. He says he can hear and feal a ticking in his swaybar and thinks that’s what’s causing the battery to die if’s not used regularly. He said he pulled the swaybar 30 amp fuse and the ticking is still there. Also swaybar will not di...

Re: Discontinued rear differential

Have you tried MoparPartsGiant.com? Not showing out of stock when I pull it up on there.

Are you sure it is the locker and not the wiring our electrical connections upstream, or even the smartbar module?

Re: SimonandSimonBeast Build

Just finished up a small job that I partially completed months ago. I had previously run a wire harness from the running battery to the rear of the bed with a single 12V outlet. It was just kind of sitting there not mounted because I knew I wanted to do a 3 gang outlet. I did the final drilling and ...
