  1. I've always tightened till TIGHT untill you can get a cotter pin thru the hole and slots on the castle nut. That taper can be decieving....tighter than you think than with a straight hole.
  2. you should be able to find the info here: http://dodgepilothouseclub.org/know/ph_parts/pilothouse.htm that is located underon this web site via: Resources -> Pilots Knowledge find the section you are looking for and you can root down to the proper fasteners.
  3. That lives on the back of the stake pocket and the tailight bracket lives on the front.
  4. That will be the REAL test...considering the grid can barely handle current loads (Kalifornia for sure)....add a few million more people and then everyone's EV and see what happens...IMO it's all to "make a statement" with zero math/common sense behind it.
  5. Nut welded on the stake pocket before assembly to the bed side if its like the B series?
  6. Welcome! Yah the doors on these boys tend to get the rust monster at the bottom. Depending on your skills and or depth of pocket, fixing the current doors is the best bet IMO, as even donor doors run the risk of rust waiting to pop thru.
  7. A tach does wonders for what the engine is actually doing.
  8. Open the pictures up on a laptop or desktop computer application like "Paint" and resize them down that way. I know of no way to do so on just a cell phone, short of changing the settings on resolution on the original picture.
  9. I think I need to get you a dictionary to determine what "rule" means if you apply it to the 48-50 over the 51-53's.... 🤪
  10. Did you spike those ties together? Hate to see one roll on ya!
  11. ALTIMETER? Now THAT is a fancy truck! 🤣 (assuming autocorrect error)
  12. The upper one, if it's near the seam where the A pillar hits the roof, that's where mine did its thing...tightened the bezel too much. Good news it's flat glass, can be sourced locally and won't break the bank.
  13. well this sucks, I know I placed an order the day I put this up, but it seems they cancelled it...now out of stock. DRRRRR.
