Diagnosis question: 2016 Ram 2500: slight jerks in steering while driving in corners

2016 Ram 2500 with 37x13.50 tires

Steering makes little jerks in corners or while stopped if I turn decently sharp. I’ve been thinking of upgrading to dual stabilizers to help solve this, maybe the big tires cause this? Could it be power steering? It’s not impossible to drive it but does get annoying. Any advice appreciated

Jeep WK2 to Pick-up switch for towing/traveling?

Hey Everyone,

Hope this is the correct r/.

Currently have a really nice v6 GC that has great 4x4 capabilities with a sick tire set up. Love this Jeep...but.... I tow an enclosed trailer for work. Weighs about 2,500 lbs if I had to guess. The Jeep seems to struggle a little and makes me nervous. Luckily I'm only going local. I also do light off roading with it.

With that being said....

I think I need to upgrade to a little bigger vehicle. I need something that can tow the trailer with ease so I feel more comfortable. Also that I can drive in the snow/mud with no problems.

I need 4 doors. 4x4. not over $20k (which I know in this market is impossible, which is why I'm doing my research now so when it comes back down I'm ready to make the switch.) A d something that has a big aftermarket world.

Which truck and why would you recommend it?

Thanks in advance. Jeep Guy

Question for everyone regarding PCM rewrite for a chip.

I have a 2021 Sierra Elevation and I bought a Diablo tuner for my truck unknowing that my vehicle has a PCM lock on it. Diablo has a PCM swap and unlock, deal has anyone ever done this with their vehicle? I am kind of skeptical of it because my truck has 1,500 miles and if my PCM gets fried I’m in trouble to say the least. Any input would be appreciated! Happy thanksgiving to all.

Looking to get into trucks, but don’t know where to start.

I want to get into trucks, but don’t really know where to start. I know almost nothing about the differences between the major truck manufacturers, their models and stats, etc..

I don’t know what the torque is, what a “v8” is, what the liters are, what’s up with getting a lift, towing weight, etc..

Is there any sort of beginners guide?

Do I need a dyno tune or can I use an off the shelf tune for backfire on accelaration?

I have a 2013 ford f150, I upgraded to a S&B cold air intake and it drove great. But then I got a 5 inch diameter mbrp exaust pipe which did increase performance but if I give her a bit too much gas she starts backfiring and losing power. (P.S. the exact modle is a 2013 FX4 3.5L ecoboost and it rides on 32 inch tires if that helps)

Help – Security options for soft top ute

Hi everyone, I'm not sure this is the right place to post this but I thought it was worth a shot.

I'm going on a road trip for a couple weeks this summer. There will be multiple stops where I have to leave my vehicle unattended for several days - camping, canoeing and general roadside parking. The problem is the only vehicle that's available to me right now is my Dad's work ute that has a single cab and a soft top with bunji cords/elastics.

I'm hoping to spitball some ideas for security options so that I can leave my gear in the back with out stressing about theft of my gear.

I'd rather not build a box to leave in the tray incase someone just lifts out the box. Also don't want to get a hard top or have one made because this trip is less than a month away, I don't think a hard top will arrive in time.

Any ideas would be appreciated!

1988 Jeep with Throttle Body Injection High Idle

I feel like I have done everything I can to fix this idle. Nothing seems to work or have any effect on how the engine runs. What I have done includes;

-Checked all lines and gaskets for vacuum leaks (Can of carb cleaner)

-New Head Gasket

-New Exhaust Manifold Gasket

-Rebuilt whole intake manifold with new gaskets (Injector O rings and filter also)

-New Idle Stepper Actuator

-Adjusted ISA according to FSM

-Adjusted TPS (per FSM guide)

-Cleaned the injector

-New Air Filter and Spark Plugs (trying to play it safe)

-Checked Coolant Temp sensor, MAP, and MAT sensors, all of which work correctly

As far as I know, the jeep has no check engine light, it is a 1988. It has a diagnostic port, but I don't have a diagnostic reader or a friend with one. I am stumped as to what could be causing the high idle. No mechanic that I brought it to or friend I consulted offered any advice that worked. If someone knows what it could be, I would really appreciate the help.
