    Lower Control Arms

    Replacing my lower control arms soon. In all of the videos I’ve seen of them being replaced the whole knuckle was removed.

    2012 1500 4x4 conversion (yes, again)

    Hello! I’m brand new here, as I recently purchased a 2012 Ram 1500 5.7 Hemi from my father. It’s a beauty of a truck in my opinion, and the family ties are too strong to sell it anytime soon. The problem is, off-roading capabilities. It’s a 2wd and I often need 4wd as I’ve already gotten it...

    Something fishy about this rearend.

    I destroyed the Dana 60 case on my 04 1500 4x4 and all i could afford was a used 9.25. I didnt notice that it was a 9.25 at first or I probably would have passed. My original plan was: Swap my carrier since it is a 3.92 LS and the donor case has 3.55 open diff. Now I have 2 questions: 1. Will a...
