RE: 200,000 Mile Milestone

I got the spare belts out for our two 4B150's and installed as a maintenance item, and soon notice they were cracking! I go what the F, until I remember the boat was 11 years old and the spare parks kits came aboard when the boat was new!!! https://i.imgur.com/jHTAyhkl.gif

RE: 2021 Ram TRX

What is the power split from front to rear? That AWD system must be built hell for stout to hold up to that kind of power. You would think in order to track straight the power distribution would be 50/50, but it could vary depending a traction? It is probably smart enough to move power as needed around on the fly! One can read about it here: https://moparinsiders.com/an-in-depth-look-at-the-2021-ram-1500-trxs-selectable-drive-modes/ This is going to give the left handed copilot a real roll in the operation of the vehicle. Not left handed copilot, start learning to push buttons, touch screens and turn knobs with your left hand. As you will most likely will have your right hand welded to the grab handle on the passenger's A pillar.

RE: 2021 Ram TRX

Also the truck has full time 4 wheel drive. Not sure I care for that but it's probably because of the power. Todays full time 4 wheel drive in not your grandfathers full time 4 wheel drive system. The system in our Ford Edge ST is pretty much transparent. Launching it is seamless for a 4500 pound SUV and only having a 2.7L V6 to turn 0-60 in 5.7 and 98/14.3 in the 1/4 mile is not bad. Oh yeah, it is a twin turbo with 335HP and 380 lb ft.

RE: Front hitch

What do you hook the winch cable to that will stand up to 17K pull?

RE: Front hitch

Looks like I may have to have something made op. As the of the rack only allows 9000lb pull and I intend to use a 17000lb winch. Thinking side brackets 1/4” thick, 3x3” 1/4” wall tube across, With a 2-3” receiver . And make the mound for hitch out of a short section u channel 8”x3” 1/2” thick. What do you think. Frank. With a 17000lb pull winch you will have to maybe re-enforce the frame rails. The hitch it's self may not be your biggest issue. Now are not planning some way to anchor the rear of the vehicle, other wise the amount of pull will just drag a 8K truck rather than rather than move something on the other end of the wench cable. Or is that the plan, to drag the truck with all four brakes locked up? Confused!

RE: Front hitch

I built my own for our 2001.5 RAM. Spent a couple hours at a junk yard measuring old rear hitches to rebuild for the front of the RAM. https://i.imgur.com/C9fcLLzl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/7fM4PQYl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/nHrXYqbl.jpg Left overs. https://i.imgur.com/uqZmHwWl.jpg

RE: Unlikeliest of engine swaps!!

I did an engine swap years ago in a 1963 Chevy Suburban. Took out a 292 I-6 and put in a mildly built 283 with headers and nice exhaust system. It took a different front motor mount tower on the passengers side. I sourced the OEM fiberglass fan shroud for the shorter V-8. Everything else bolted right up. I stopped by a friends auto repair shop while visiting my home town after the swap and told Rudy what I had done. He said "you ruined a nice truck", and I said take a look, and opened the hood. He said wow Chris, can I take this up to my HS auto class to show the kids how such a thing should be done? It went from a vehicle that would pull over a building with the 3.73 gears out back and a 4 speed truck tranny, that was NOT a freeway cruiser, to a truck that easily cruised at freeway speeds. I was towing my friends E racing run about circle race boat at the time. Trips all over the NW were much more pleasant with the V-8 under the hood. I guy that build our boat motors built the 283 for me.

RE: I need new Tires

Maybe YOU can show us. ROAD HAZARD does NOT count. Yep, this does not count as a failure. https://i.imgur.com/Wzhoc7gl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/nls12gtl.jpg Goodyear sent me a check for 1/2 the cost of the replacement tire as a goodwill jester. And no that bolt did not come off my TV or TT. It happen just before I got off US 60 at are winter park as we were returning from a side trip to Tucson. Was still leaking air when we pulled up in front of our park model. Chris

RE: Storage space vs phoney fireplace.

That's an excellent idea Me Again. I like the addition of the reinforcement pad. Our OEM configuration has a 2x2 across the width for both struts to attach to and it is pulling out. I'll try changing the angle and adding re-pads as you have. Thanks again for the tip Me Again. I put a ample amount of glue on the pad and then used my 1/4" air crown stapler with quite a few staples to help attach and hold them until the glue dried. Just make sure you mount them inboard of the side rails of the base. Chris

RE: Storage space vs phoney fireplace.

Anyone know of upgraded struts or a powered lift for the under bed compartment? We have both a 2017 5th wheel and a 2019 TT. The bed in the TT lifted easily and the 5th wheel was terrible. I got looking at how the struts were mounted and reversed the angle on the 5th wheel ones and guess what, the bed is much easier to lift.

RE: Uconnect 8.4 default to bluetooth?

Put the truck in run without starting it. Push and hold the centers of the two radio buttons, until it starts a reboot. See if that changes things. https://i.imgur.com/DMVh01Rl.jpg

RE: Uconnect 8.4 default to bluetooth?

can't find the "break" pedal :) The "baker" fell in the "kebar"! Or was it the "kebar" flooded the "baker"?

RE: Uconnect 8.4 default to bluetooth?

Have you had it on the phone and pushed the seat memory button, to remember "your" personal settings, for seat, mirrors, HVAC, and radio etc? No memory button. No memory seats for which fob opened the door? What trim level?

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

I just bought the truck in my sig this May for $37k with 81k miles on it. When it was new, the sticker on it was $63k. If you build/price a 2020 with the same features it's $70k. That was a pretty good deal on the 2015! I would not give my 2015 away for that amount.

RE: RAWR Question?

And it had the neat camper tie downs built into the bed of the truck. I should look and see if I can find a picture of the seat. I had a friend with an upholstery shop that rebuild the seat and did a nice cloth seat. I want to see the seat pic! Still looking for ideas for the blue truck. Have a good upholstery guy and not doing the 80s ugly assss crushed velvet. Looking 70s cloth / vinyl patterns or saw a 1981 custom Deluxe with a 1 year only pattern that is the shizz. I looked this morning for a while, but did not find a picture. Sorry.

RE: RAWR Question?

MeAgain, awesome pics! Your truck was a “real” 3/4ton with a full floater 14 bolt. Amazing what “was” done in the last and is now looked down upon.....albeit mostly by keyboard warrior internet experts. Was the point of my thread....cheers guys!
