Re: Power wagons at work

Been doing some landscaping finally. She's squatted pretty good and to make matters worse this rental place doesn't have brakes on their equipment trailers!!! I don't understand that at all! Most people are pulling around mini exs and those little Kubota back hoes with a 1/2 ton and no brakes! https...

Re: Power Wagon Picture Thread

Had a few days of hard rain. This spot has been over 10ft deep before and washed out the RR tracks with multiple derailings. Was only about mid frame height at front horns but it always gets nerve racking. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20220517/7d542b4f2bc35af40f66d33d6724e49f.jpg Sent from my SM...

Re: PM and prep for moab

Hold same oem filling to the hole!? The hole looks at least 1.5 inches higher... I thought front was around 2.25 and rear was 2.6... hmm

Re: PM and prep for moab

Hey rusty did you ever measure the capacity with those covers? I know they ain't high cap but the fill holes are higher so I just put in oem amounts but I've got a gear whine under acceleration going on now. Maybe I was a little short, going to add some today.

Re: 4.88 vs 5.13

Honestly when it comes to gears nowadays there's no reason to shop yukon. You're paying for a name that is just on a box. They are not made in US any more, nor is Richmond, yukon gets from all over the place so you're really in a crazy shoot on if you get decent gears or not. Research your brands co...

Re: PM and prep for moab

Got it all done and put her back to work on Sunday. As usual the run of mill ball joint presses don't have exactly all the adapters you really need. So I had to pound in the uppers with the shallow BJ cup adapter and a 2# sledge... worked easily enough tho but my right arm feels all Popeye like now....

Holy #$%^&* Just got that sucker out finally... Long story short, cut the ball joint out of cup, drilled 1" out of center, sawzall'd a splice in it from top to bottom at cardinal points and collapsed it enough to hammer and punch out.... https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20220312/b3441b9e77b4d26c18e9...

In the snow a few weeks back driverside wasn't turning, meaning not locked. In the air last night it took a few rotations but did sta...

Yep, I've got silicone on the cabs and 3rd already. Going to replace those soon with blackouts so they'll have all new housings and seals and I'll probably add some extra sealant then too. BLM, you think it's more than just the gasket? She does have 136k on her. Lower BJ isn't budging... upper came ...

PM and prep for moab

Well I'm finally getting a little free time and the EJS trip is close so I'm doing a bit of preventative maintenance and such. My (I assume) sunroof drains have been clogged up and every hard rain I get wet spots in the corners of headliner and drips out the A pillar grab handles. So I dropped headl...

Re: 10.5 to 11.5 Rear Axle Swap?

If sourcing a bolt in 11.5 you might get lucky and find a PW locker for sale somewhere from a wrecked one. Or ... probably the most realistic route, instead of an ARB and having to add the compressor and associated lines and wiring, go with an Elocker. Could probably tie into factory wiring then and...

Re: For those with 2019 Plus Reliability?

I've not had any problems you've listed for the 18 and older trucks with my 2010...??? Only major issue was a VVT solenoid which required a cam, loaded head, and that bank push rods. Was covered under lifetime powertrain. That was in 2015 with 90k. This year had TIPM issues with 135k. Sent from my S...

Yes it is. Wireless Ignition Node.

It's the box behind dash that you fob fits into or where the push to start is.

Well I FINALLY just picked her up. 2 months and 3 TIPMs later... ugh. Would think the dealership would double check all the settings too. My TPMS is different, auto start not activated... and worst of all.... they didn't even take the time to set the damn time. ARGH WTF!? I hate my local dealer Sent...

Re: preventive maintence

May as well get a better set. I'd shoot for the longest tube possible though. Shorties are good for fitment and do flow better but your noticeable power gains come from longer tubes.

Well it had to go to dealer. Alfa can read all WIN info but not program it unless I just wasn't looking hard enough in the right spot.

$1600 for new WIN module and TIPM

Re: 40s on a 2010-2013

I wouldn't want a 6 neither. His handle was bangg and his PW was named the Hazzard wagon. Idk about an actual build post but he was posting on here when he was getting ready for the UA.

Power but no start... again

So I got in the PW this morning and got no start. It's done this back in 14 but it was intermittent and never came back. Dealer couldn't recreate back then neither. I've read about TIPM, BCM, WIN module, etc... does anyone know if I can test these systems with alfaobd? I pulled starter hoping it was...
