Now that I think of this some more, if you have levelled your truck by cutting coils (or any other method), then add a load directly over the rear axle, then the front elevation does not change and...

Spring cutting thought experiment

I was thinking of a way to understand what happens when you cut coils, particularly with the not unreasonable suspicion I have seen mentioned in many threads, that leveling the truck will cause it to...

Stock battery type?

I'm wondering what battery type to set on my charger. I assume the battery is neither AGM nor Gel, so I will set it to Flooded. I vaguely remember reading somewhere that maintenance-free batteries...

Agree. Which makes me think the improvement may be from something else. It is damnably difficult to verify these small improvements.

Just towed a 4000 lb trailer for a while with my 8-speed sitting at 5th gear in tow/haul mode on level ground, going between 50 and 60mph (I have the 3.21 axle). I didn't quite get 12mpg, according...

.7mpg in a truck averaging around 20mpg is a 3.5% improvement. I don't call that negligible. It will save you around $700 in fuel cost if you go 100k miles.

I very much doubt Dodge is using small...

Mine is the same. I do wait after starting; it's not long. And going down the hill I ride my brakes lightly so the rpms on a cold engine are not too high. Not much else can be done about it that I'm...

I had my 8-speed replaced too, at 100 miles. Just a bad casting, with a transmission fluid leak through the side.

I don't think it is anything to worry about. Even the best manufacturers put out...

Pretty darn good for that engine. I do the same, just slow it down, but have a hard time keeping it below 60. At dusk I might go 55 just to give me a chance if a deer crosses in front of me.

Ouch! :158:

Looks like the answer is to not have a nice vehicle. I wonder if insurance covers that sort of thing?

I like the shifter. What I'm having trouble with is the windshield washer/wiper control, which on every other car is on the right side of the steering column.

I've got a Tekonsha wireless controller. It is very nice. Just plug it into the 12v power and go. Of course it must be paired with the unit on the trailer first.

Um, I don't think so. The point of a wd hitch is to stop the front end lifting, by sending some weight to the front.

I notice an unloaded truck has higher wheel wells (and presumably frame too) at...

Yes, I noticed that you gain a lot more tow capacity going from 3.21 to 3.55, than you get going from 3.55 to 3.92. Check out the charts. I'm not sure why since the 8 speed compensates, keeping you...

Once you get that piece mounted you need to get a "stinger" that goes into it. These come in different heights, see etrailer.com for example. Then the ball goes on the stinger. People try to select a...

To get 380 ft-lb you need a cheater bar, just a pipe that you slip over your socket wrench.

I had to apply 250 ft-lb on the ball nut of my hitch. My torque wrench went up only to 150 so I set that...

Sounds like a great idea if you have money to burn for the swap, don't care how much fuel you use, like the sound of a busy engine on the highway, and don't mind your engine wearing out faster.
