  1. I think it is time we get a dose of good news from the world. There is a lot wrong, but also ALOT right. Todas example is the work in helping people with parkinson's Deep brain stimulation is helping people with Parkinson's live a normal life again. https://my.clevelandclinic.org/health/treatments/4080-deep-brain-stimulation-for-parkinsons-disease-patients

  2. I’ll just copy and paste this: Think of the battery as a bank. The more money you have in the bank the longer you can pay the bills. Think of the winch as your wife. She can really pull the bank account down quickly. If you have two bank accounts the longer it takes said wife to empty them. Think of the alternator as your paycheck. The bigger the paycheck the faster you can refill the bank account and keep the wife happy.

  3. I think your doing a great job, you have my respect for doing all of this and your efforts do not go unnoticed. I appreciate it as I'm sure many others do.

  4. I’ve been running a Nations 180 amp alternator for about 3 years now. Switched to it because of high AC noise from the factory unit. Was having TC lockup issues. I don’t have a winch. My Pacbreak does run off a small air compressor. I haven’t had any issues with it. Just FYI.

  5. I've never dropped my cord. Well except that one time when I pulled away and forgot to unplug it . That's one step better than Dad did when he was still here. Pulled out from under the gooseneck with the tailgate UP . Maybe that's why they make the tailgate 6" thick on these new ones? At least none of us did like Grandpa and drove away with the gas nozzle still in the Lincoln Town Car .

  6. Within reason, no it won't. As long as you're not talking a much heavier rotor, which is likely not going to happen at a perceivable amount on these trucks.

  7. I bought my 99 in September of 2008 with 68,000 miles and it was bone stock. It has 168,000 miles now and has been through a few variations to get to where it is now. I’m sure I’ll never stop buying new parts for it or trying different things with it. It has been the best vehicle I’ve ever had, and I still grin every time I look at it. I’m new to this community and am excited to be here.

  8. That's the thing most think that you can just throw a website up and you don't have to do anything. Far from the truth. As new technology comes out and the software changes come you have to keep upgrading and fixing minor issues. My problem is after doing all the dialysis running for MoparMom the site fell apart some what and now I'm playing catch up now that I'm not on the road 1,1100 miles a week. I get up early every day somewhere around 4am to 5am and plug at the website for at least 3 to 4 hours every morning. Bench testing and diagnosing issues in the software fixing things as I can. Hen

  9. Sounds like healthy batteries, clean terminals, and good cables along with a healthy stock alternator works for you. I might just do the ground mod (my cables and terminals/connectors are new) and replace the diodes. Also guess I’ll check the brushes. The alternator that’s on it now was a brand new Denso I put on 3 years ago and has about 25K miles on it. But I admit I did push it really hard with the winch the other night...the last pull was a doozy and after 7 hours in the snow and at 1:30am I wasn’t stopping and giving the winch or the truck a break. Lesson learned I guess.

  10. I still have the original Bosch alternator that came with my truck new, ya I’ve had it since 02. And 350k on it now, Just the factory size battery cables running from winch to passenger side battery. and solid connection lugs, As far as batteries I change them out about every 4 to 5 years, Right now I got the last set at orielys, I forget the brand, I also live at 7500ft. Elevation in Colorado and they do take beating with the cold starts and such, but I do contribute the longevity of my alternator by keeping my batteries and wiring and lugs in top shape. I am not a heavy user of

  13. Kind of like myself... Bought new in October 2002 for $32,000 with only 43 miles on the odometer. Now Been back and forth to Boise- Ontario so many times in 5 years that I've now racked 424k miles (roughly 1.1k to 1.5k a week) on the odometer. Engine is stronger that a 5th gen (500 HP to the ground). Still going strong. Mine is another that will be around till the frame rust in half.

  14. Bought mine barely running, Trashed interior and the fact I could only do 35 from Camp Pendleton to naval base San Diego sucked. Also bought it knowing I wanted a 1 ton for when I got out I could travel from north to south with the mud truck without issues. fast forward a few years it’s got 384k on it and has travelled coast to coast more than I can count with a trailer attached. Currently Makes the 5 day commute for work without issue, since the 318 in 95 1500 is done for at a hard life of 287k. going to be one of those vehicles that stay around till the frame rots in ha
