  1. Sweet baby Jesus thank you for putting together this video. This morning while driving to the dump my headlights started to flicker and three separate times all my electrical systems cut out completely (70mph). I spent a few hours today stepping through all of the various grounds and was getting ready to pull my hair out when I came across this thread/video. Sure enough I took apart my dash and that ground on the driver side was loose. If you live in Dallas I'll buy you barbecue Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  2. TRS Retro-Quick Kit?

    I am almost done installing this kit myself, and will post my impression once I have some night time driving under my belt. Thank you for all your help with this I'm excited to test this out but I have to be honest and say that the brackets that Morimoto provided is a complete fail there is so much grinding involved to get them to fit that there is little or nothing left of the bracket relative to the screw holes.

  3. Thanks for the feedback and I agree it is a failure of the lens but I'm surprised he would be due to heat as this is their stock light there's been no modifications made to boost the output Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  4. So I have had my Rigid Industries, DOT Fog lights for just over to 2 years now and I am finding that they are so terribly pitted and oxidized that there is very little if any useful light now being giving off by them. I know I can send them into Rigid to be refurbished but I was just curious if anyone else has experienced this type of lens degradation, or might have any ideas of how to repolish the polycarbonate. I was debating trying to use a variety of fine grinding stones and then possibly Jeweler's Rouge to bring back the smooth polycarbonate surface but I certainly don't want to make the problem worse. I'm glad that rigid is willing to warranty them but I am a bit disappointed at the level of deterioration and just two years time when my truck spends the majority of its time parked as I work from home Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  5. Here's a similar product http://shockerhitch.com/Buy_Now.php?id=22 Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  6. I wasn't looking to debate the sexiness of this type of hitch but rather the effectiveness of having a coupling that was designed to absorb shocks / Flex and you drive down the freeway or off road Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  7. I was just curious if anybody in this group has bought one of these Gen Y torsion hitches for their 1500, and could provide some real-world feedback as it seems like our Trucks towing capabilities is that the minimum threshold for this type of hitch. Or at least the specific model which seems to be the lightest Duty setup they make. https://genyhitch.com/shop/10k-adjustable-torsion-drop-hitch/ YouTube Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  8. So I've had my rear airbags installed for about 4 years now and I thought I would share some observations while also soliciting some opinions from others that have these installed Comments: 1. 4 years of mixed usage with zero problems or air leaks. 2. when running without a trailer I find that I must have at least 12psi of pressure otherwise the ride quality is terrible as they seem to counteract the rear shocks (5100's) I think part of my challenge is striking the balance between my 5100 in the front that are set on the 2nd snap ring. I think I'm going to change them to the third snap ring in the near future, and see if that makes a difference in the overall ride quality 3. With an empty trailer such as my dump trailer or flatbed I find 25psi is perfect. Bass boat is 20psi 4. With 5000 pounds of gravel in my dump trailer 40psi seems to be the optimal setting. 5. When pulling my Outback 250rs travel trailer I find that I must increase the air pressure to 50 - 60psi. But this is subjective as it is highly dependent on how I have my trailer loaded down in conjunction with my WD hitch. I still have not found the perfect combination between my WD hitch and the airbags what I have found is it is far better to set the WD hitch and then adjust the air pressure accordingly, again this would be way more convenient if I had bought the onboard air compressor and monitoring system. 2. I regret not paying extra for the onboard air compressor as it does prove overtime to be inconvenient to always be adjusting the air valves which I mounted as licence plate bolts. 3. At 80 psi my truck reminds me of a 70s muscle car with its ass in the air LMAO!!!!! Anyone else want to share some thoughts or opinions? Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    I have this kid installed as well and 4 years after the initial install I have never had a problem no air leaks it works great Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  10. A/C Condenser

    I'm getting ready to go in to have my third condenser installed first one lasted 3 years second one lasted 6 months Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  11. A/C Condenser

    My first condenser failed at 58,000 miles here it is just 6400 miles later and my second condenser has failed with a crack in the exact same spot as I'm driving home from Atlanta to Dallas. The irony is that as far as I can tell the newer condenser is exactly of the same design as the old one they didn't bother to fix anything Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  12. It's almost time for new tires and I'm having a tough time deciding between getting another set of toyo at2 (only offered in E-load range) or possibly going with the Duratrac's since they offer a D load range in the following size: 285/65/r18. Don't get me wrong the Toyos have been a fantastic tire and I have put 55k miles on them, and I really would not be sacrificing much from a towing perspective as both the E and D range tires exceed the GAWR of our trucks anyways. But I would really like a smoother ride which just cannot be achieved with an E-rated tire on a 1500. It's a long shot, but I'm curious if there is anybody in the Dallas area that is running the duratracs with a D-load range, if yes I would love to come take a ride in your truck 285/65/r18 D = 3195 lb 285/65/r18 E = 3640 lb I also would not necessarily be opposed to a C load range tire but that appears to be a unicorn in the size that I want.

  13. Is that constructive feedback or you just trying excessively to be negative Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  14. Storm chasing in Texas

    Just to clarify I have no intention of driving through a tornado nor getting Withi even a mile or two of wine it's more about spending time with my daughter and teaching her what I know about photography Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  15. Storm chasing in Texas

    I am debating getting into storm chasing with my ten-year-old daughter is I think it would be a fun activity for us on Long weekends I am curious if anybody in his group does it as a hobby if yes I would love to talk to you about some basic prep work I should do Beyond a basic meteorology class Truck and Equipment prep Etc Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
