    2012 Ram Excessive Oil Consumption

    Also interested. Last summer/fall mine was using at least a half liter of oil every tank of gas. Blows blue out of the exhaust on start up. Did replace the PCV and it didn't seem to help. I fear it might be time for valve seals on mine. Truck hasn't moved since November and I plan to wake...

    2013 Alpine upgrade Jl Audio woofer and speakers

    Curious how all this turns out for you. Especially the sub. I'm in the process of colleting parts to do something similar. Going to put the Kicker 8" sub in the stock Alpine box with a dedicated amp. Already have an aftermarket head unit. Planning to leave the speakers alone.

    Stock Alpine Subwoofer Replacement - 2022 Edition

    Yes i am running the Alpine system currently minus a head unit. Was planning to run a separate amp for the sub and keep the speakers wired to the head unit. May have to just speak with a local store to get this all sorted properly.

    Stock Alpine Subwoofer Replacement - 2022 Edition

    Awesome. I'm looking at doing this in the next couple of weeks too. Liking the shallow sub so i can maintain the back seat height. Already covered the box with sound deadner and filled it with polyfill for use with the stock alpine sub. Questions 1- for those that have done this, are you...

    Alpine system speaker upgrade

    Also interested in an update. Looking at going with a similar sub in the factory box. already got a Pioneer head unit so hopefully with an amp for the sub should make things perfect.

    Oil burn

    Wanted to bump this thread. Currently burning oil in my 5.7. 174,XXXkm on the engine. Typically I only see smoke on start up. I'm down about 1-1.5 L every tank of gas... roughly 400-500km. Thinking i should start with a PCV valve check/clean/replace and go from there. Should note that my...

    Camshaft swap, ShitBox Edition.

    Friday is date night with the wife so i likely wont make it. If weather works out maybe next week. Didn't get the filter mounted yet. Haven't been able to get to Mopac for the new fittings.

    Camshaft swap, ShitBox Edition.

    Nice. Had read that years back. I thought it was harder than that for some reason. Happy to see the catch can is in the original location and its just basically putting in 2 fittings.

    Awesome. Interested to know what's involved to get the catch can to work? When I'm able to find one of these intakes my plan is to plumb one in too.

    Who tows with their lowered quad cab 4x4?

    I tow with a 2/3 GF kit and 2wd front spindles on my 4x4. Airlift bags and a rear sway bar is a must. Our trailer is about the same weight as you. Have been running this for 5 ish years now and never an issue.

    Stud length

    I remember you used those because of the 2" drop spindles up front. Are they the Bora ones? Thinking of going with a .25" set on my RTs with 275's. Just had the fenders replaced due to rust and will be installing oem flares to protect everything. Don't much care for the wheel/tire recessed...

    Wiper Arm Replacement....

    Interesting. My wiper arms are very sun faded and I was thinking of painting them. If its beneficial to replace them with Jeep ones that might work better.

    Stud length

    interested in this also. Looking at adding wheel spares to my stock rims (and RTs) so they sit flush with the OEM fender flares. Curious what the better ones are and if .25" or .5" is what i should be using?

    MOD Planning Help- Cam Swap and Other

    Not happy about this update. Truck broke down yesterday. Turns out the heater core hoses let go as the clip that fixes them to the valve cover was broken/loose and the exhaust manifolds burnt through the hoses. All the coolant ended up on the ground and tow truck. A near by shop and work is...

    Strictly the 4x4 lowering thread...

    Thanks for this. Clearly the QA1's are not for me. Our winters would destroy those. The Rancho's sound like they are a good option and my guess is they would be better than the GF ones I've been using. How did you figure out which ones would fit your 4" drop? I'm on a 3" rear drop so would...

    Strictly the 4x4 lowering thread...

    This has been what I've been doing so far. Wasn't sure if a bit more money would net the same results....

    I was reminded Wednesday night when doing an oil change how bad I need that thing. Will hook up with you towards the end of Aug.

    Strictly the 4x4 lowering thread...

    Wanted to pose a question to the lowered 4x4 crew. Any recommendations for rear shocks? I've toasted my second set of GF drop shocks. Because my truck is a daily driver and tow rig I'm looking for something different than the drag guys. Leaning towards KYB or QA1. Interested to know what...

    Tough timing. We're headed to BC on holidays Friday night so I'll be ******* at home. Will touch base with you when I'm back. Would enjoy making it to 1 meet before summer is over.

    And after a months time I've finally got the AFR installed and was able to get some data logs off to JG. Already received some revised tunes. JG mentioned I was running richer than needed. Will get these loaded into the truck tonight. Did experience a 4th moment when the truck shut off...

    MOD Planning Help- Cam Swap and Other

    Small update. Truck runs strong but has developed a strange issue. This has only happened 3 times and at relatively slow speeds. The truck looses oil pressure and shuts off. 1- pulling up to gas pump at Esso 2- wife parking truck in front of house (up hill) 3- coming to a stop before turning...

    Getting there. Nice gauge. I still need to wire mine in. How many hours did you have into the install?
