    Dealer trans flush!

    i would love to see this truck get to the 400k mark without having to rebuild the whole thing. If anything kills the truck though it’ll honestly be the electrical system before the mechanics of it imo.

    Dealer trans flush!

    To each their own, I didn’t want to pull the trans out again and there was too many conflicting arguments over the fluids so in the “better safe than sorry” Logic I went factory to alleviate any issue.

    Rear end clunk

    I replaced them and have not had the problem since, I do think the severity had something to do with the fluid as well... the diff service was a while back and I don’t think the correct fluid was used, put the mopar fluid back in with an overhaul kit and re used the factory gears

    Dealer trans flush!

    If I may, I would not recommend using any other fluid in the 8hp70 trans... blow the extra money on the mopar fluid and avoid any issues! The pan comes with the filter in the package so you can hold off on purchasing a separate one unless you are referring to a remote filter unit? Dealers are...

    Banks derringer +1.8

    Anybody have the derringer installed? Are you happy with the purchase? I have one in the way with the intake... hoping I spent my money in the right place 😅

    Replacing filters

    I replace my oil and fuel filter every 5k and I run an AEM dry filter and clean regardless of how it looks every 8k... it’sa cheap price to pay imo for reliability. I also run XDP fuel additive every fill and XDP oil additive every oil change. I run AEM’s oil filter and k&n’s fuel filter...

    Coolant Leaking

    Check the turbo coolant inlet line under the intake, unfortunately you can’t exactly see it without a bore scope weaseling in the crannies but if you have the time and our money to all of it out, clean it and replace the line. It’s almost 300$ just for the line but imo it’s worth doing well...

    Trans “mod”

    If you need to re align the torque converter after trans re install this made it soooo much easier... is it proper? Probably not, but it worked for me! And I just plugged it with a high temp silicone and body plug

    Thank you, I’ve been trying to get this pig back into the confident side of the spectrum after quite a few set backs. A big thanks to XDP for their military discount so these repairs don’t hurt so bad

    Rear end clunk

    After pulling the rear end apart 3 times I finally found the spider gears to have a very small amount of play causing an intermittent kick in the butt on acceleration from a stop.

    Coolant leak

    Water pump was leaking... turned out that was only a part of the problem, ended up having to pull the whole upper intake plenum off, cleaning the egr and map sensor and the turbo coolant inlet line under the intake. And the intake alone took almost two hours to clean by itself and almost another...

    Overall the truck is awesome, great mileage, towing cap, comfort, air ride... cost of ownership has been high, had about 5k in repairs in 2 months, sitting on the side of the road waiting on tows, electronic throttle control issues and codes, limp mode, radio/nav issues and constant bcm/ecm...
