Re: SRT10 calipers

Just replaced all four Brakes and Rotors yesterday with EBC yellow stuff pads and EBC GD Sport Rotors. ~$800 Only part way through bedding and break in process so far and the improvement is significant. I opted not to do the calipers because all 4 were fully functional and the best pads give the mos...

Re: Oil Pressure Related Check Engine Light

AMSOIL makes great products - you pay a little more and maybe you feel better because you use it. :cash: The Ram engineers selected PUP oil and Mopar filters for the 6.4 - so that is what I use. Lots of better products Frig up our vehicle sensors and gauges. Take rain-X washer fluid for example, run...

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.
There you go! :cheers:

Say goodbye to the tactile feel of a manual transfer case floor shifter and say hello to more dash switches and electronics. :(

That sucks in my opinion...

But at least they have worked out most of the push button kinks in the other Ram models :wink:

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

These stock batteries are amazing. Other vehicles I have had barely got 1.5-2 years out of the shitty stock batteries.
Yeah - I'm keeping the Stock Mopar battery in my garage for now - it never failed to start the truck!

Battery time

The OEM original battery just barely turned over and started the truck this morning at 5 below zero. The 7 year old battery never failed me, but I'm not going to push my luck any longer. I've only used the inexpensive Walmart Everstart in everything I own and always get 6 to 10 years out of them. :c...

Re: which tire is standing up the best

I've run 4 sets of the BFG KO or KO2 on various vehicles... They are prone to cupping on the outside lugs and wear faster than you might expect (regardless of what pressures you run them at). :cheers:
