    Bilstein 5100 vs 6112

    Well I know what I'm doing when I kill my 5100s. My truck is near GVWR most of the time. Just put on my 285/75R17s and with those and our ****** roads, I don't see more than 2 winters before they are cooked

    Alright guys.. BILSTEINS post your pics!!!

    5100s 2.1 front, +35% capacity coils and 5100s rear. There is about 600# in the truck between back seat and bed and it sits level so I will probably throw some trim spacers in the rear.

    If you use 2018 Ram when you search for parts you will get a lot more results. I'm not sure what of importance changed when the new body style came out and they kept building the old Gen 4 and called it a classic. Do you have a particular offset in mind for the wheels? Most methods are either 0...

    8hp70 heater bypass

    R22 was great, it had a next to zero ODP, and a half decent GWP. There is still tons of R22 equipment out there, but at least there are "drop in" replacements out there. All the HFCs using that God forsaken POE oil are on the chopping block. Like R410a, good riddance when it goes away in the...

    8hp70 heater bypass

    It is, but there are a lot more explosive things in greater concentrations in a vehicle. I'm waiting for the new A2 flammable refrigerants to hit the residential and light commercial market. But yeah the super low GWP is why some of these blends exist. I don't know automotive guidelines, but I...

    8hp70 heater bypass

    Good lord. Aren't these using the YF1234 refrigerant as well? Last I checked that was worth a few internal organs per lb

    8hp70 heater bypass

    I understand what Fiat Chrysler is doing here but they sure went about it odd. Like why not have a solenoid controlled by the ECU and a thermistor reading to open the passage, and have the passage larger for better flow. Like they spent all this money to design and make the heater, and then use...

    https://www.tire-reviews.com/Tire-Tests/Results-Grid/2022-Tire-Reviews-All-Terrain-Tire-Test.htm I found this handy. A mix of off road and road biased ATs, helpful as many of us daily drive these trucks.

    8hp70 heater bypass

    Was hoping to see what was found with the ones guys transmission with the random temp spikes. Didn't see a switch to Chevy coming after 65+ pages. Throughout the 68 pages here, I believe I saw mentioned that the Stellantis cars do not necessarily use a heater like the 1500 Rams. Some BMW/other...

    Success lowering trans temp with @chaulk04 mod

    I'm 34 pages thru the 68 page post about caulks bypass mod. Turkey bird have more actually helpful info in his response than I received to my first two questions. When I get a chance I'll finish the other 34 pages.

    Success lowering trans temp with @chaulk04 mod

    So a 1800s designed natural draft water heater (presumably natural draft by the timeline given) without a T&P valve (irrelevant note to the rest of the story) somehow used up all of the available oxygen in the room without roll out, to the point of suffocating an infant child, and this is your...

    It Appears Major Discount are Back in Play

    I did see an old new stock 22 crew cab 3.6 Warlock in Winnipeg in the 40s CAD the other day. That's kind of an oddball tho like how many 22s are floating around? I've seen up to 10k off MSRP ads, tho I got my truck for about 16% off the sticker. Keep in mind it's a classic tho not 5th gen

    Success lowering trans temp with @chaulk04 mod

    I asked about what is an ideal temp for the 8HP70, since I don't have tons of experience with it and Ford claimed a temp range of up to 220°F as "normal" in it's temp range for the 6R80. And a guy jumps on to telle how ludicrous that is like I designed the damned transmission and personally...

    Success lowering trans temp with @chaulk04 mod

    This chart is helpful. So I'm curious to why the OEMs are designing trucks to keep transmission temps in the 180-190 range? I have many years and two 6R80 transmission Ford's to draw from and the dials "normal" temp range was 50-220° F. I added the OEM aux transmission cooler to my F150, my...

    Success lowering trans temp with @chaulk04 mod

    Found a couple threads where others said trans temp stayed below 200°F and coolant got as high as 240°F. Nobody jumped on to lecture them so I'll assume that's normal temps and carry on.

    Success lowering trans temp with @chaulk04 mod

    Cool. I'm asking questions tho and didn't get an answer. I follow the severe service schedule for my vehicles. I'd like to know what is considered "too high" for the ZF 8HP50 since this truck has actual temp read outs and not a 4 position slow sweep gauge like my F150 did I am able to keep an...

    Thanks for the information. I was planning on Morimoto full LED headlights when my finances recuperate. Didn't know I'd be needed to reprogram a bunch of stuff.

    Form Lighting Headlights

    What triggers errors in the BCM if you had halogen headlamps and switched to an LED projector style? Is it just bulb outage kind of alerts and hyperflash for the signal?
