    2400 rpm at 75mph... is this normal???

    So would it be good to go with a 4:10 and a 35 inch tire for towing? I want to keep my current tire setup since it is perfect for how I want it to look. I am not wanting to spend more money if I don't absolutly have to. I am working on getting a chip so I can use towing options and better...

    Thank you. That's what I was thinking so I appreciate it. I totally get how glow plugs pull a lot. Can this be a possible issue that the alternator could be dropping in amps

    Stereo is now not working after Heater core replacement

    That is what I was thinking but I actually checked the fuses and all are good, the fuses have power but no power to the radio or the dome lights.

    Stereo is now not working after Heater core replacement

    This afternoon I went out on the truck and checked the connections to the radio and all are attached and connected correctly. The radio is still not working. Is there a connection in the fuse box that might have popped loose or something?

    Some common LED light questions

    Thank you for this, I have read about the canbus and yes that is correct, I just wasn't sure if I needed anti flashers or other things like a load resistor.

    4WD bad at turning

    This is awesome. Your rig must be hard on smaller trails. Since my truck is not a full cab like yours it seems that one would be a little harder to go across certain trails. but I wouldn't think so since my works well off road. 2wd in this truck is amazing I haven't gotten stuck yet.

    4WD bad at turning

    Man I learn everyday about things that can be explained simply but my brain thinks in a deffective and difficult way that is not simplistic, Excellent explinations for this in the forum. This has helped me very much to understand a little more about the 4wd on vehicles. Thank you for the video...

    4WD bad at turning

    Thank you for that information, I really thought that would be the case since I have seen many people break things when rock crawling, I am not planning on doing that but more of an overlander with a long bed and something we can tow and go camping with as well as for later in the future. For...

    Is it normal to do this when offroading in general? will this break things if constantly used on a trail?

    Some common LED light questions

    Has anyone used LED lights all around in a 2nd gen Truck? I am looking to replacing all lights to led if I possibly can, I have them in my suv and they just work better, last longer and much brighter. What is your opinions on these?

    I am new here

    I will not, It is a semi daily driver but will be getting my SUV hopefully fixed so this will be used on vacations and meticulously maintained. I have already put in 4000 in it to get things working and running at top notch.

    4WD bad at turning

    I have not done it on dry tarmac, I understand that is not a smart thing. It was on snow and ice not severe but it is weird, doesn't lock but it seems like something is binding a little bit. like I mentioned in snow and ice.

    4WD bad at turning

    Hey all Wanted to get some input on a 4wd issue I have with my truck, I might need to take it to a shop to see if this is an issue but would like to get some answers first. When in 4wd High or low, not worried about low since it is meant for crawling, the truck has no truning radius at all, if...

    Best winter A/T tire

    I would say I have wildpeaks on my rig and I love them in the snow, these tires on my truck make them stick on the ice and snow with no 4wd on. General APT are good, I have a friend that runs BFG k02 and he loves them in the snow, I don't have much experience with them in a big truck, my SUV...
