Sometimes I'll drop it down into 2 and turn off my O/D just to keep the tires from revving too much when they slip on ice and slush


Also, weight in the bed is your best friend. I put like 400lbs of sand on mine and it makes a world of difference

I'm assuming it's the motor. It makes a hellacious whining sound when you try to put it back up. My buddy gave me his yesterday so I'll see for sure after work today.
The chirp sounds like it's coming from the wheels or brakes. It chirps when accelerating up until 45 mph then it stops. But then it comes back when Decelerating from 45. Also happens when hitting the brakes. Just had them replaced a little while ago and they never mentioned anything wrong. So I have no clue. I thought camshaft synchro was more of a 3.0 problem?

Good luck with the window motor.

I have the same chirp, I think my brake pads are rubbing or something.

Yep 3.0 problem. Didn't know what engine you had, can't see sigs on my phone

Hahaha always start at the top. Motor starting to knock in the lower end, but I found that the oil had coolant in it which im now believing this to be the cause for the slight knock. Its burning coolant and warming up quicker then usual. Its starting weaker some days and its showing two po codes, 171 and 174. Idles kinda rough some days. I dont know. Probably nothing but something aint right.

Small price to pay for a noticeable difference in performance.
