Re: Locker Issues....

What boggles my mind is that Jeep can get their lockers to work almost instantly, as well as my wife’s Colorado ZR2, but Ram can’t get their shit together and just make a simple system that works like it should. I think it's all the safety nannies that Ram put on the lockers. They certainly made th...

Re: Locker Issues....

I've found that if I disconnect the battery it resets whatever is screwed up, I really think it's something with the smartbar. The lockers will then work fine for a while, until they don't. My bypass from retired BLM rig will be here tomorrow.

Re: Locker Issues....

I'll revive this thread. Lockers worked fine last weekend while hunting. Today they worked for a while and then the lights all were flashing again. Damn things anyway. The sway bar disconnect is working fine. I was busting a lot of snow drifts today, really needed them. Even without the lockers I wa...

Re: Daystar Cradles

Would there be any benefit using elevator bolts instead of carriage bolts? That's a good idea, never thought about it. I guess it would depend on the thickness of the elevator bolts. What are they, probably 1/16" thick? You would just have to shim the bolt that attaches the cradle to the mount the ...

Re: Well.... It may be time again ;)

We were on vacation last month and a Power Wagon parked next to me. At least I thought it was a Power Wagon until I noticed the huge tail pipe and checked closer and it had a Cummins badge. That guy didn't skimp at all, he had all the decals. It looked just like mine except it was black and mine is ...

Daystar Cradles

Thought I would start a new thread on this concerning the Daystar Cradles. The instructions for them are vague at best. I'm using the Airlift 5000 Ultimate Airbags with the internal bump stops. When using the Daystar cradles I see where other members who have posted photos are not using the silver m...

Re: Towing Capacity

First big trip with the Power Wagon and Toy Hauler. My pickup sits better with the Mule in the back of the camper as it takes some of the weight off the tongue. Without the Mule in the back it really makes the rear end sag a lot. I ordered Daystar Cradles and Airlift bags to help with that. The WD/A...

Re: Fed up!!! (More dura trash)

What load range are the stock Duratracs? A Power Wagon should only have Load Range D or E tires. They're not using Load Range C Duratracs are they? If so that is the issue. I'm in Wyoming as well. I've had Hankook MT's and AT's. The AT's sucked, the MT's were okay. I now have the Cooper ST Maxx and ...

Re: Locker Issues....

I don't know how fast you're moving when you try to engage your lockers, but activation is inhibited above 3 MPH. I turn my locker knob, then turn my steering wheel to cause rotational difference between the axles and just let the truck creep forward. Bingo every time! That's how I've always done m...

Re: Locker Issues....

They're back to screwing up again. When I turn the knob to lock the rear the unlocked light will flash along with the front locker light. Really odd flashing. I guess I'll take it back to the dealer and see if they can find anything wrong this time. Damn things, I'm really going to need them when th...

Re: Locker Issues....

These damn lockers are going to drive me insane.. They'll work fine and the next time they won't work at all. Then the rear will lock, but the front won't. I have no idea, other than it is an electrical gremlin of some sort. I'd take it back to the dealer, but it will be a repeat of last time and th...

Re: Locker Issues....

Dealer couldn't find anything wrong with the lockers and they seem to be working fine now. I think that it was the transfer case position switch screwing up even though it said it was in 4-lo. Putting it in and out of 4 wheel drive several times must have fixed the "glitch". Good news is the dealer ...

Re: Locker Issues....

Went out tonight and tried the lockers and they locked in instantly. Tried a few more times and sometimes they'll engage and sometimes they won't. Thinking it is a wiring/connector issue of some sort maybe the smart bar.

Snap-On scanners have the ability to read final drive control module/SmartBar codes and live data. Find a shop near you that offers free code reading and has a Snap-On or other professional grade scanner (Autel, OTC, Matco, Mac, etc.) and see if that can give you any more info to work with.

Do the 4WD and 4LOW indicator lights function properly on the instrument cluster and accurately correspond to the transfer case shifter position?

Did a search and couldn't find a similar issue. My lockers won't engage and now my sway bar disconnect seems to be acting up as well. When I go to lock the rear it just flashes and occasionally the green unlock light will sometimes flash once. The front locker light will sometimes flash as well. I h...

Re: Towing Capacity

Thanks for all the replies. We ended up signing papers for a toy hauler yesterday. Dry weight is 6373 lbs and GVWR is 9985 lbs. I was wanting to keep it under 10,000 so this should work. My SXS is around 1800 lbs so I should have around another 1800 lbs to get up to max (I better never get to max). ...

Re: Towing Capacity

Yeah, being in Wyoming the majority of my towing will be at over 6000 feet in elevation. I'm thinking I want to keep the GVWR at under 10,000 lbs. and the dry weight of the camper under 7000 lbs.

Will a Power Wagon handle a toy hauler (bumper pull) with a gross dry weight of 8300 lbs? GVWR of the camper is 12,000 lbs and dry hitch weight is 1500 lbs. I would do airbags, but I'm still wondering if it will be to much when loaded with a side X side, gear, etc.? It doesn't take to much to get up...

I like how you think. That would be a sweet setup.
