  1. You'll want a very large wire, at least 4 gauge, with a big fuse in it. Car stereo wiring kits can accomplish this easily. Run it direct off the battery and terminate it at the back with something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Engineering-Universal-Electric-Wiring-Disconnect/dp/B0758X8KP7/ref=sr_1_2?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1516147967&sr=1-2&keywords=20+foot+power+cable+with+quick+disconnect Buy a male version of this and wire your winch to it, and voila! power for your trailer winch when you need it.
  2. You can always simply install some switches of your choosing into the wiring harness. Pursuit versions might have an "all dark" switch and, if so, maybe you figure a way to add it. Probably complicated if even possible.
  3. I have one of these on my Ram 1500. Works great for lowering but has no lifting assist. https://www.etrailer.com/Tailgate/DeeZee/DZ43204.html?feed=npn&gclid=Cj0KCQiA-ebSBRC8ARIsAGuxJIp-IrGgB-lqAMKeHAsQZhLl8uV7GKdHOpQqy33a79uF6WOMiEBaT_0aAlnOEALw_wcB
  4. You could tap the load side of most any fuse, but the wiper fuse seems best because you would never use your wipers at the same time as the methanol pump!
  5. That's right. Amazon is great for this. I bought over 50 Delco or AC parts for my engine compartment clean-up. For instance, the alternator had the correct double anodized pulley and fan. Plug wires, sometimes even decals and stickers.
  6. You need to increase your horsepower by 20%+ to see any benefit over a newer stock cat.
  7. I've had great luck with BFG Radial TA/KO's.

    Having the dealer do the work is key to retaining warranty.
  9. I drive a 2017 Ram 1500 4x4 Laramie with 20 inch wheels and stock tires, and one extra option: 4 corner air suspension. Talk about night and day difference. I traded the Denali in my signature for it last June. I absolutely love it. I have a Cadillac ride at all loads and auto level to boot. I'm going to order a new 2019 just as soon as it's possible.
  10. Right. That same window sticker will state which infotainment center you have and will list built-in navigation if it has it. .
  11. Denali 1500 wheels are brushed finish and have a lip around the edge with DENALI embossed into it.
  12. So you don't have built-in nav, but the turn by turn directions that come through the radio after you tell the OnStar operator where you want to go? That's the OnStar version. If you have normal touchscreen nav it's yours forever.
