Yep. That's what happened to me. I'm the one gsbrokman linked to in the above post. It's outrageous that the dealer wants $2,800. just for parts and it's not the problem. Look at the linked post...

And after you do that, get them spin balanced. If they run true and are balanced you are good to go.

1st gens are a far cry from the third gens as far as DW is concerned. Be careful you are not...

Holes also make the disk lighter for its diameter, but that's mainly a benefit for motorcycles and bicycles. The holes relieve outgassing as the brakes are pushed to the point of boiling the surface...

I can't see how any other brand can be better than stock.

I'm still on my original rotors and have never even ground them. Now at 280,000 miles. I've put in three sets of Chrysler premium pads...

Seems like it can't be anything other than a bad hub or a bearing race that is not concentric. Might as well just replace the hub and be done with it.

It really comes down to what initiates it and how it is stopped or prevented from getting out of hand. First off, the system has it's own oscillating frequency. When a shimmy in the wheels hit the...

None of the things on your list actually "cause" DW. They all help prevent it by being tight. BFGs are terrible tires, in my book, and tires do cause DW by being out of balance or out of round. So...

Where are you getting the power to run your winch remote control?

Do a load test on the batteries and clean the terminals. You might be pulling so much power from a weak system, that the low...

IIRC on my 93 CTD, the tranny cooler lines went to the cooler in the bottom of the radiator and there was no block mounted heat exchanger. Maybe someone added another cooler and did away with the...

If you only want a diesel to save money overall, look somewhere else. But there is so much more to a Cummins than crunching the numbers. Some get it and some don't.

Incredible reliability,...

The 3500 rear coil setup might come with the early 2015 model year, but it's been delayed and the dealers have no clue when it will show up.

It's different than the nice system on the 2500 in that...

This is why it would be nice to have a center differential in the transfer case for a "full time" option. With the equivalent of 90 HP or so pulling "backward" on the rear tires, it can get a bit...

None really. Tow/Haul acts like a sporty mode with higher shift points and better throttle response since the engine is likely running at a bit higher RPM when you step on it. When on the highway...

I just did the same thing two weeks ago. '04 to '14. Like you said, WOW. The power comes on much more gradually, but the torque is awesome. Better door seals, air conditioner works very...

If you want the Aisin, like I did, you'll have to look around on the lots or do a search.

The 68 is a much better tranny than the 48 and you had good luck with your 48, so strength is probably not...

What is the factory TPMS threshold for the warning? I don't want to run at 80 PSI all the time. 60 would be more like it.

Just looked the tire pressure on my way home with my new 2014 SRW and yowza, 83 PSI.

What are you guys running in SRW trucks? I'm thinking 65 front and 60 rear makes more sense for the 18"...

I have these codes and the throttle is becoming less sensitive. Sometimes it goes half way down before I get power, sometimes it's hard to maintain an even speed.

I understand that, and thanks for the writeup. I'm asking about the belt. Does the fan have to come off to change the belt?

The only info I can find about flushing is to just drain and re-fill. ...
