    Lifters, extended idle times, oil

    Sounds like its more than a lifter issue, like others said. My 17 6.4 early on was using PUP0W40, then at 40K 0w40 RL, tried 5w40 RL no different. All filters were Royal purple. It has always been a loud engine, ticky, but I did Blackstone testing from day one, all good wear numbers, 4K-7 K...

    68RFE thermal bypass and tie rod end suggestions?

    ATS is what I used, fits 66 and 68. Best mod I did, lowered temps from 205+ to 165 -175 while towing in 110 degree temps. Several threads on this.

    Question for Rebel owners about tires

    I've always put E rated 10 ply tires on my previous 1/2 ton pickups, stiffer sidewalls, less flats. You can run them at lower pressures when not towing. That said dont go over the max towing limit.

    Unstable Towing with our 1500

    On my my prior 1/2 ton pickups always used 10 ply E rated tires and a 10K WD/ Sway combo. Was not as heavy as yours, was like it was on rails towing 70 MPH, 40 mph crosswinds. Better rated hitch and E tires, might just do it.
