Re: brake pads

I got the EBC brake parts from SummitRacing and THMotorsports pre Covid. I see that prices have gone up dramatically. :angry:
I bought all the parts and didn't get them installed for a long time until i couldn't stand the pulsing anymore!

Re: brake pads

Replaced all four Brakes and Rotors last year on my 2014 Power Wagon with EBC yellow stuff pads and EBC GD Sport Rotors. ~$800 Huge improvement in stopping power. I'd really recommend doing the Rotors too - the stock rotors won't hold up to heavy braking and will warp and then cause pulsing. :cheers:

Just an update. After going through 5 fuel pumps on this truck and the dealership running an entire new wiring harness as well as new fuel pump the last time I'm turning it back in to FCA as a lemon.

Lights Out!

Today the truck started reporting "Break light out"... Wow this is cool. Went to the auto store and grabbed a pack of brake light bulbs so I'd be ready to dig in. Had my helper check the brake lights, and to my surprise they were all working - yet same message on the console. Checked the bed cargo l...

Re: FilterMag questions/ found loose part in rear diff. 3400 mi.

Just going to necro-bump this thread because it was helpful. I just changed the axle fluid on my 2019 PW with 20,000miles. Front fluid was still very clean and clear looking, rear was transparent but pretty dark. Front plug magnet had lots of metal on it, rear had less, interestingly. Cleaned off t...

Re: Trxus MT 4 Oz Balancing Patches?

Tire manufacturers use them to cut down on rejects that don't happen to be within balance tolerance out of Forming.

They are more common in larger tires now - instead of selling tires and expecting the consumer to add tons of weight to the rim

Had a 50 mile trip out in the snow this morning, mostly highway speed..the truck has never shifted so smoothly. It's not hanging in 2nd anymore, getting right up to 4th, hitting 6th nice and smooth on highway.... everything was nice smooth, downshifts are perfect.

Re: 3rd Gen Winch Causing Parasitic Drain on Battery

After the truck has been sitting off for a few hours, see if the winch solenoid is slightly warmer than everything around it. The hand held infrared thermomitors are great for this but your hand may feel the difference if it is draining your battery that fast.

Re: 2007 Winch Parasitic Drain on Battery

When the truck has been sitting unused for a few hours, see if the winch solenoid feels slightly warmer than everything around it. Those handheld infrared thermometers are great for this, but you may feel a difference with your bare hand too if it is draining your battery that fast.

Re: 66RFE transmission with PO735 & PO871 codes

You are going into "Limp mode"
PO735 --> issue with 5th gear ratio
PO871 --> lack of fluid pressure

5th is an overdrive
consider a fluid change... and PO871 is likely coming first and then triggering the PO735 when it tries to shift into OD
