    New truck!

    I’ll check it out. Doesn’t really mention where the tunes come from on efilive.com, are these sourced separately from the programmer? I can’t see me flashing something that was configured by someone with some real experience... Also, with the trans, I was wondering if I should try a kit like the one below, and H&S tuner or something along those lines. https://www.dieselperformance.com/shop/product/1030362-bd-68rfe-protect68-pressure-control-kit-cummins-6-7l-dodge-2007-5-2018-19234 there are a couple shift points that I wouldn’t mind adjusting, seems to go into 4th/5th a little early...

    New truck!

    Thanks TM, I’ll check out the driveline u-joints. I haven’t properly looked at them yet, the only reason I noticed the front ones was because there was a distinct noise when driving slowly. We’re contemplating taking a fifth-wheel to Alaska next summer and I was already considering installing some new Dana/Spicer joints before the trip. Random note here, there’s a great u-joint series on YouTube that’s worth watching, particularly useful to those guys you see changing u-joints with a hammer! I haven’t seen that since high-school but I know there’s someone still doing it. Paul, it has the 68RFE. It shifts very well now and if there’s anything I can do to lengthen the life I’m all ears. I’m concerned about any perf changes as it feels like the stock trans/engine are reasonably well paired but I also wouldn’t mind more power, at least a better throttle response. On the programming side, is there any clear winner for an 09. Smarty still considered the best or...?
  3. Gentlemen, long time no "see", hope all is well. I've entered back into the diesel club with the purchase of a 2009 Crew Cab w/ a 6.7 and 76k, from my father. It's a real peach for it's age and I'm hoping to have it for a very long time. Anyway, I plan to keep it clean, near stock in appearance but I also wouldn't mind making a couple strategic upgrades. The only problem I've found with the truck so-far is the both front axle shaft u-joints were toast. I'll be changing all of the floods soon (just for my own comfort), including break fluid, trans, diffs, fuel, etc. Is there anything else I should be concerned about? No KDPs for this year? Cheers, Jerret

    Transmission builder near Pasco, WA?

    Thanks. I actually received the same recommend when I called Goerend's Transmission. I'm waiting to hear back with a price. If any other names come to mind, let me know!
  5. My cousin has a 2001 Ford Excursion with the V10 and the transmission needs to be replaced. I believe this is the same transmission used behind the Powerstrokes? Anyways, it's up at the Ford dealer in Pasco, WA now and they're looking for nearly $5k. Any recommendations for a local builder/installer or someone who can do the install if we bring out a pre-build tranny? Thanks much, Jerret
  6. SOLD.... Maybe the price was a little too low, the first guy that looked at it bought it. I wish I had posted it here first as I've had a couple inquires and I would have liked to have sold it to a bomber. Thanks guys!
  7. 1997 Dodge Ram (Cummins) Ext Cab, Laramie, Black 4x4. VERY NICE. Only 132K. $9,950 Feel free to email or call my cell: 503-553-9421 (Jerret) • 132k Miles • Beautiful/clean inside and out. The front seat has been reupholstered and a new ACC carpet kit with extra sound deadening was added recently. • Goerend transmission with a billet triple-disk converter and a billet front input shaft (less than 25k on it). Shifts beautifully. • Pyro/Boost/Trans auto meter gauges on the pillar • Solid steel (link) steering stabilizer w/ adjustable track bar. Replaced all other components with Napa gold suspension parts while I was in there. • Newer sipped 32" tires on aluminum wheels with revtek 2" leveling kit • A/C condenser and lines were replaced after a line rubbed through. System was flushed/oiled/filled and blows mighty cold air. • Arma liner in the bed. • Brakes in the last 15k, including new rotors in the front and wheel cylinders in the rear. • #10 plate and slightly advanced timing. This is a very nice truck. The condition of the interior, as well as the drivetrain, make this an excellent find.

    Help me price my truck!

    Thanks for the comments guys. You're hitting right in the area I was thinking. I'll probably list it on the higher side, maybe $10.5k as I don't see all that many listed and very few with the millage I have. Sure, people know the engines go forever, but the fact is people still shop by millage quite a bit. We'll give that a shot for a couple weeks and see what happens. Hoss - shoot, I would have been happy with a WAG, there's very little science in pricing a used car! Cheers, Jerret
  9. Good research. The one I ordered is the Fram one. Their flow rates all look pretty much the same at eight pounds (?) of pressure. It’s interesting that when you get down to six pounds we're only looking at ninety cfm over stock. I guess that's almost a 20% increase but I would have expected more. I suppose it's quite possible that the stock filter is more restrictive at higher pressures and the benefits could be greater with the Bhaf when you get into eight or more pounds of pressure.
  10. I'm getting ready to sell my truck and I'm looking for a little guidance on the asking price. I don't have any pics on me, so you'll have to trust my description 1997 Ext Cab, Laramie, Black 4x4. 122k Miles Beautiful/clean inside and out. I had the front seat re-upholstered and have new carpet with extra sound deadening added. Goerend transmission with a billet triple-disk converter and a billet front input shaft (less than 15k on it). Shifts beautifully. Pyro/Boost/Trans auto meter gauges on the pillar Solid steel (link) steering stabilizer w/ adjustable track bar. Replaced all other components with Napa gold suspension parts while I was in there. Newer sipped 32" tires on aluminum wheels with revtek 2" leveling kit A/C condenser and lines were replaced after a line rubbed through. System was flushed/oiled/filled and blows mighty cold air. Arma liner in the bed. Brakes in the last 15k, including new rotors in the front and wheel cylinders in the rear. #10 plate and slightly advanced timing. This is a solid, well maintained truck and I think it really shines amongst the "crowd". Really, with the steering, transmission and brakes this truck feels *really* tight compared to some other slop-buckets I've driven.... The question is, what should I price it at to move it in a reasonable time? Thanks! Oh, and I'm selling it because I simply don't use it much anymore now that my home remodel is done and it's a waste to drive it a mile a day to the MAX line (Portland's pathetic train). I also have an older Bronco that I am finishing up and it would be nice to have the extra $$ to dump into that.
  11. Just an FYI folks, I needed a new filter and went to NAPA to replace my Bhaf and they wanted over $70. Well, I went home, fired up Google and got a good cross-reference list (thanks diesel bombers): BHAF numbers NAPA # 2790 Fleet Guard # AH19002 John Deere # PMAH19037 Wix # 42790 AFE # 20-40044 Hastings AF 1012 Carquest # 87790 Caterpillar 3i 0005 Fram CA 6818 Then, I went to an online auto parts store my friend recommended and picked up two, including shipping for $37.62. They had three available at this price, so there is one left. Their regular price is still pretty good @ $26.79 w/o shipping. I don't know if the Fram filter is as good as Napa's in this particular case but I wasn't going to pass it up. One left: http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/raframecatalog.php?tab=search&partnum=CA+6818&mfr=FRAM Regards, Jerret
  12. Doing a road trip from Portland to St.Paul, Minnesota. On the way home we'll be dropping a little south to go through S. Dakota and Wyoming. Google the route to see the cities we'll hit. I'll have probably (at least) half a pickup bed worth of space that's covered with a canopy. Leaving tomorrow night. Maybe it's time to pick up that new tranny from Goerend. Cheers, Jerret

    Subscription Expiration

    I personally spoke with Ron Paul and he informed me that bombing a Cummins is well within our rights as established in the constitution. Ok, I lied about talking to RP but he's got my vote anyways. Also, Russ, if you need any help with hosting let me know. I don't have a lot of time to offer but I do space/bandwidth on my VPS at a quality host I would be happy to donate to the club.

    Auxilary fuel tanks

    Robert, let me know if you still want to sell it - I'm debating it now. If I end up getting it I'll just use it for storing some extra fuel at the house, you gotta be prepaired for the apocalypse, right?

    Tires!

    I bought a set of BFG AT 285/75E16 LRE from Discount Tires a couple weeks ago. They were the only place that would beat Costco's price. However, it did take quite a bit of haggling as Costco was the only one that would process the $60 rebate in house and it took a little bit before Discount Tires would match that. Very happy with their service and attention to detail. Also, they ue nitrogen to fill their tires at no additional cost. My 2c - get a quote from Costco first and then see if Discount Tires will beat it. They had a huge banner on their store saying "We Beat Costco Prices". -Jerret
