Re: DIY- 2011 Differential Service/ Fluid Change

I believe that the correct axle lube is 75w90.
For the transfer case, it will depand on which brand of fluid you go with. Make sure that it meets the Shell 3403 spec. Amsoil meets that, the ATF+4...

Easiest way to change PS fluid?

Has anyone done this yet? I don't know how much is in there but with the cooler I imagine it is a pretty significant amount. I have some ideas about using a hand pump but don't want to damage...

Re: Chrysler Recalls 867,795 SUVs Worldwide for Brake System

Re: 2014 mopar Power Steering Fluid

I believe Fuchs or Pentosin is ok. You would have to go to a place that caters to the Euro crowd. BMW, Merc or VW/ Audi- it's all the same as they use typically. Supposedly the Amsoil PS fluid does...

Arrow Transfer case fluid at 40

Swapped out the transfer case fluid over the weekend. The process was easier than changing my oil. While it isn't "due" (40k, schedule A says 64k), my agreement with Amsoil requires that I run their...

Re: K&N Air Filter for Ecodiesel?

Only really matters if the exhaust is opened up though. Which most big diesel guys have already done. W/ a stock exhaust castrating the motor benefits are nominal, no?

That is definitely a vent. I suspect it is for the front differential. Crawl under and look around the top of the front diff for a barb fitting. If you find one and there is no hose attached that is...

That is exactly what I was going to say.
A lot of things go into a tow rating- brakes, wheelbase, engine, cooling options, etc. My guess is the wheelbase is what limits our GC's vs. the Ram. I...

Re: Oil Life

You can probably get them to put syn in it if you pay the difference. The dealers around here use Penzoil Platinum.
