nice easy but scenic (and historical) run, have fun!

 

FYI - your club probably has it covered, but the rangers there are rather keen on enforcing the group permits

Yea I'm just looking for a fun getaway for my buddy and I and maybe a couple others.

 

Yea we got it covered. We are usually pretty good with stuff like that just cause we are a cal 4wheel registered group so they watch us like hawks lol

Well I officially hate this thing....I miss my trucks they were so much more reliable then this turd.

Anyways finally able to get some flex pics

Nothing to crazy but not bad for a 2" lift with 31.5s and sway bar still connected.

 

And for those interested why I hate this thing.

Still has death wobble (not really a big deal just frustrating since I plan on lifting it next year I don't want to spend money on all new shit just to turn around and replace it.)

And has a stupid idle issue that I can't track down.

Once it warms up it and when coming to a stop it drops to like 300-400 rpm while in gear and wants to die.

Things that have been done

Tps, iac, crank sensor, fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel rail pressure check only things left to change are the pcm and the map sensor both stupid expensive and hard to get to. Thinking about trading it in and getting a 2nd Gen ram 1500 single cab short bed and building that instead......

I know I am late to the party, I just joined the forum, and this is a month old. But if you have not traded or fixed the problem yet, mine was doing the same thing and it was the MAP sensor. Buy the genuine Mopar one ( mine was $80 from the dealer), as the cheap ones from from AutoZone don't seem to work according to people on the other forums.
