Re: Ditch light mounting bracket

I used Baja cube lights in place of the fog lights. The wide cornering lights are nice.

Pricey, but nice. When I got them they included a mount, cables etc.

Re: 2005 Power Wagon hand me down or keep it as my own?

Well, if someone is going to have an accident a 2500 is a pretty decent vehicle to be in. On the other hand, it’s a big vehicle that offers opportunity to bang into things because you don’t quite get how wide or long it is.

Re: 4.88 vs 5.13

Nitro and Yukon are who everyone who has done this has said they used. I think Yukon was preferred, but not sure any more. A quick look shows that Nitro at least has 4.8 and 5.3 for the 11.5 diff, but errors ordering are expensive. I understand that it’s also not the kind of install that you should ...

Re: Lithium Ion Jump Packs

I’ve read that you can use starter batteries to run systems fairly long-term but you have to only discharge them to like 10% to not kill them in short order. But I’ve never tested that. I have had my truck alarm kill starter batteries dead.

Re: which tire is standing up the best

What do you do with your truck? It's it's off-road mostly then Toyo MTs are great. But they are not best for mileage and on-highway. They are not terrible, but you can certainly do better for less doing mostly highway.

Re: Sway and oscillation

Yeah, I was amazed at how much it changed. With stock it was no problem at 30-35 and I think with the 37 toyos on otherwise stock it was fine at 30-35. But either the wheels or the the suspension made it highly inadvisable to run at 30-35 past about 45 mph on pavement. My bet is the suspension, but ...

Re: Going without TPMS Sensors

Third party TPMS sensors will work. You might need to clear and clear the rf list to get them to register, which requires a tool or dealer.

I’ve driven around with three sensors and had no problem with other systems. Just annoying idiot lights.

Re: Sway and oscillation

I have King 2.5s and it is more unstable at low pressure and high speed than stock. Running at 25 psi in toyo 37 MTs at 50+ mph stability control kicked in multiple times in a few miles until I slowed down. It's fine at 45-50 psi. Not saying this is what' going on, but maybe?
