Recording (2m 25s):


Jay “Lightning” Tilles (2m 31s):

No. I have not. All

Sean P. Holman (2m 32s):

Right. I don’t, I don’t know if you picked the part that, that Ram RHO release video that we talked about a couple episodes ago, but Jeff Summers, who’s the head of advertising for Ram Trucks, I know him and follow him on LinkedIn. He put a, a roadmap, let’s say, to all the hidden Easter eggs in that sucker. And there were a ton.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (2m 54s):

So the one that I saw there, we should talk about the commercial. Describe the commercial and then well it

Sean P. Holman (3m 2s):

Some the convoy. Okay. And and it was the, there’s

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (3m 6s):

A a bunch of famous people,

Sean P. Holman (3m 7s):

All sorts of stuff,

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (3m 8s):

Right? Everybody getting in line. But

Sean P. Holman (3m 10s):

You sent me a, okay. I’ve been telling you for how long that the T Rx is not dead.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (3m 16s):

Nine months

Sean P. Holman (3m 17s):

I’ve been saying TRX is not dead. It’s just not gonna be a V eight. It’s not dead. There’s a lot more power. It’s not dead. It’s not dead. It’s not dead. Everybody’s like you’re dumb. There’s not gonna have anything for their After our competitor. I’m like, the straight six has a lot of power protect. Nope. Nope. Ain’t gonna happen. Well, it’s happening. It’s happening. Yeah. TRX is coming back. So

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (3m 35s):

This commercial that they do, right? So it’s a truck pulling another truck. Just go

Sean P. Holman (3m 39s):

To, just go to Ram’s YouTube page and then type in the convoy and watch, watch the video and then I’m gonna tell you the piece of that video to pay attention to.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (3m 49s):


Sean P. Holman (3m 49s):

All right. Number one, the camp was style to evoke a Baha 1000 garage paddock vibe. Number two, a glimpse of the custom Baja truck with Ram DNA is owned by Baja champion Reese Millen, who you’ll see in the video. Number three, the clock inside the tent features a hint at the 540 horsepower of the RHO. Number four, the Ram 2,500 Rebel towing. The special package has very familiar lines. Number five, Intro to Glen Powell, who’s the actor, AKA Shepherd, who’s their new lead brand ambassador and hero of the upcoming Twister Summer blockbuster where he also drives a Ram truck. So there’s that tie in six dedicated call signs for each vehicle, a play on the capability of the trucks as they’re driving.

Sean P. Holman (4m 33s):

In this case brute for the tremendous capability of the Ram Power wagon. You see brute on the, on the license plate. Yeah. Call sign Rebel for our renowned off-road vehicle brand nine was the dirt bikes. If you notice, one had a number placard that had 540 for the RHO. There was a second bike which had no numbers on it. And according to Jeff’s post, which has a number intentionally left blank for the next Ram, high horsepower vehicle with three letters.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (5m 5s):

And the one with no number plate jumped over the

Sean P. Holman (5m 10s):

Other one. Yes it did. Number 10, KTM bike’s leveraging their partnership. ’cause they have a partnership with KTM in Europe. And so they’re talking about being driven by Dave Castillo, former Supercross Pro Hollywood stunt man. He’s an Ironman Jurassic Park born Legacy Furious. Seven 11 is the Intro to Reese Millen, AK Rebel, and one of America’s top competitors in Drifting also owns a rally racing team in and a Ram 12 reveal of the Ram Rebel X, which we talked about on a previous episode. And the 10th anniversary special edition with a special color backed by popular demand. 13. Introducing the entry level warlock, which is also in there. 14 Klut Davis, you may know her from Motorsports TV car builds, monster trucks drift stunts, and she’s a lifetime Ram fan.

Sean P. Holman (5m 51s):

She’s in there driving, doing what she does best. 15. The first full view of the convoy nod to the iconic and original Twister movie, also featuring a red Ram 2,500 as homage to Dorothy from the original movie. If you saw the original twisters at the head of the convoy in 16, the reveal of the true action star of the movie, which is the Ram RHO, and then their CEO of the Ram Band. Tim Kki, the hell had everything guy with RHO on his shoulders. 17. A shot of the RHO doing was designed and engineered to do with the necessary quote unquote legal disclaimers. Of course 18, a shot of the convoy where we asked stunt drivers to go mirror to mirror in similar fashion to the Blue Angels plane. Very familiar to their top gun hero. Glen Powell, of course, he was, I believe Goose’s son in the Top Gun Maverick movie.

Sean P. Holman (6m 36s):

Okay. 19 Convoy again showing the R show leading the pack into the sunset with more horsepower per dollar than any off-road truck. Jeff, of course, being the marketing guy has to say that. And then 20 the line get ready for the storm. A hint at the hurricane powered lineup of RAM trucks that will shatter everyone’s expectations about what an inline six turbo engine can be. And he says there’s even a few more in there if you know where to look. So guys, go find that video and have fun counting down all the little Easter eggs. But the best thing to come outta that TRX is not dead. Just like your man Holman told you guys for like months and months and maybe even a year. So there you go.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (7m 13s):

So they’re not gonna be the RHO high output, you think they will just slap the TRX logo on that truck.

Sean P. Holman (7m 19s):

They’re not slapping the TRX logo on that truck. There will be a new TRX, it just won’t have a V eight and it’ll be 750 horsepower plus, I guarantee it. Your man Holman has a really good track record and I’m telling you 7 0 2 7 0 5 7 15. No, they’re, they’re going seven 50 at least.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (7m 39s):


Sean P. Holman (7m 41s):

Damn. I’m just saying. I said it here in The. Truck Show

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (7m 43s):

Podcast. Lemme ask you this. Yeah. How many guys that, because TRX guys, half of them that I can tell are down for the cars. Like they want that truck, they want the va, they’re gonna hang onto it. Yep. The other half, they’re like Lambo guys. They’re like, whatever is, there’s no, yeah. Whatever the fast

Sean P. Holman (8m 0s):

Fashion is. Same thing as a Mercedes a MG fan or a Mercedes or A-B-M-W-M fan. Those cars have changed and they’ve gone from v eights to turbo fours or six and things like that. No,

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (8m 10s):

No, no, no, no, no. I’m saying that those, there’s, there’s 50% of the T Rx owners that just gonna abandon it to get whatever the cooler vehicle is. Right?

Sean P. Holman (8m 17s):

That’s what I’m saying. Oh, you are is you look at the European cars that have those huge fan bases and they’ve changed displacement from V eights to small turbos and things like that. And those people keep trading in their vehicles and getting the newest thing. So yeah, they’ll be that and then there’ll be the v eights never die. I’m never getting rid of my truck and those trucks will be worth a lot of money.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (8m 34s):


Sean P. Holman (8m 35s):

Hey Lighting, did you hear?

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (8m 36s):

I said no. Nope.

Sean P. Holman (8m 38s):

I know you love patents. So Ford, once again, being the patent machine that they are, have put in a patent application that shows power operated screens that have pyrotechnic charges. So that in the event of the craft, wait a minute. Wait, what? The deployable screens will basically keep you inside the vehicle. So if your doors are off on a

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (8m 58s):

Vehicle. Oh, I was thinking like LCD screens.

Sean P. Holman (8m 60s):

No, no, no, no. Don’t haves like mesh me mesh. Like if you take the doors off your Bronco and you go to roll it, let

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (9m 4s):

Me get ’em over here. Okay.

Sean P. Holman (9m 5s):

Just like an airbag. These screens would explode and then basically Wow.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (9m 9s):

So it’s creating a cocoon around the, it’s like

Sean P. Holman (9m 12s):

Compartment UTV or something like that where you’ve got that, that netting around you to keep you safe.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (9m 17s):

Oh, interesting. That’s interesting.

Sean P. Holman (9m 18s):

Yeah. Hey Lighting, did you hear

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (9m 21s):

How about new? New,

Sean P. Holman (9m 22s):

A couple of bits of news out of Jeep. First one is the gladiator is going to be available in the pinkish purpleish hue known as Tuscadero, which was incredibly

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (9m 33s):

Kiki Tuscadero.

Sean P. Holman (9m 34s):

Yep. Which is incredibly popular on the Wrangler. And also the six is not gonna be the only powertrain. Next year it’s going to get the Wrangler four by E hybrid powertrain. So 375 horse and 470 pound feet of torque is what it is in the Wrangler. So you’ll be able to get a gladiator with the same thing. And now I’m actually all I’m curious about this, the gladiator has a much longer Wheel base and a lot more real estate under it. The Wrangler had to sacrifice some fuel capacity on the four XE because of the batteries and whatnot.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (10m 3s):

Don’t have to do that with the gladiator.

Sean P. Holman (10m 4s):

That’s what I’m wondering. Does that suddenly become, if you get the full 20 gallon, 21 gallon fuel tank and not the 18 gallon one and you have the batteries, do you now have like the range that everybody wishes they had in the Wrangler? Because lot of people have those and they’re like, I love it. But, I. Wish it had a little bit bigger fuel tank. This might be the best of both worlds. And then you, you finally get that power that you were looking for in the torque and gladiator.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (10m 26s):

What do you They could get it up to 30 gallons.

Sean P. Holman (10m 29s):

No, I don’t think it’ll be bigger than it is now. It just won’t be shrunk for the four by E setup.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (10m 34s):

Oh, oh, oh, I see what you’re saying. Yeah, so,

Sean P. Holman (10m 36s):

So in the Wrangler they had to shrink the tank. I think it’s like 17 and a half or 18 gallons versus 21.5. Oh, I see. And so it, you know, that extra few gallons matters, you know, especially if you can get, you know, 20 miles per gallon. That’s another what, 60 miles a range. Yeah.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (10m 48s):

So that helps.

Sean P. Holman (10m 50s):

Hey Lighting, Have, You Heard.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (10m 52s):

No. Nope.

Sean P. Holman (10m 54s):

The cyber truck finally gets off road mode with an over the air update, which includes quote unquote locking differentials, which are essentially synced motors that operate like a locker.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (11m 6s):

It’s weird that they didn’t launch with that, it seems. I know how tough electronics can be. Yeah. And you know, software and

Sean P. Holman (11m 13s):

Firmware, well especially modes when You have to do hardware and software working together with outside, you know, like coefficient of traction over snow or ice or,

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (11m 23s):

I’m surprised though that they didn’t launch with it though. And they could, well

Sean P. Holman (11m 25s):

I think, I think they had to get it out. Yeah.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (11m 27s):

But it would have helped them in some of those stay off the gram, you know, for Yeah, getting stuck in the snow a few times. It would’ve been helpful had they launched with it to just better

Sean P. Holman (11m 37s):

Pr. So the off-road mode, well they don’t care about pr, they don’t even have PR department anymore. So Yeah, true off-road mode will allegedly improve handling of a rocks gravel. Snow sand locking diffs are available on the dual motor all-wheel drive model. The triple motor truck has a front locking diff, but it will get a virtual rear locker that’s always on in what they’re calling the overland mode. Trail assist will make a managing low speed, it’s like crawl control on a, or select speed on a Jeep crawl control and Toyota make cruising at a certain set speed over uneven surfaces easier. And then there’ll be a Baja mode that improves the vehicle’s handling and then, you know, set stability and all that to minimal.

Sean P. Holman (12m 19s):

So it’s more of a driver’s vehicle. There’ll be hill ascent and descent control. And then apparently Tesla’s also gonna be able to add in the update estimation of payload according to what the adaptive suspension is doing. Oh wow. So similar I think to what Ford’s doing. And they say that the cyber truck also performs better on slippery surfaces. And there’s a tent mode, which this might be the coolest thing.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (12m 41s):

A wait Whoa Whoa tent, tent mode, TENT tent. It levels

Sean P. Holman (12m 44s):

The suspension so that you can sleep on a flat surface. So it’s like when I had the rooftop tent, the GFC on my Wrangler, I used the, had the YA and tilt little things in the display so I could always get it one degree down, zero side to side. You

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (12m 58s):

Don’t have to worry about that ’cause the, you

Sean P. Holman (12m 60s):

Just push

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (12m 60s):

A button here,

Sean P. Holman (13m 0s):

It’s on air, it’s on air. So it automatically do that, which is, which is kind of cool. So that’s cool.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (13m 5s):

Hey, speaking of the cyber truck, yep. When famous people, good or bad own a particular vehicle, does it make you change your opinion of the vehicle? Does it sully the vehicle potentially for you?

Sean P. Holman (13m 21s):

Don don’t care. No,

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (13m 22s):

It really doesn’t. I no. So the fact that Kim Kardashian is seen all over town in a cyber truck, it does it make you hate it even more?

Sean P. Holman (13m 29s):

No, I don’t care. Why, why does she have any impact on my life whatsoever? That bothers you a little bit. So if Kim Kardashian was all of a sudden in A TRX, you would feel dirty, it

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (13m 39s):

Would bother me.

Sean P. Holman (13m 40s):

Is it because your behind doesn’t fit as well in the scene or

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (13m 44s):

No? No, I don’t think it has anything to do with the physique. What,

Sean P. Holman (13m 47s):

What? Like what is the thing that bothers

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (13m 49s):

You? I don’t know. And I don’t actually. And why do you care? I don’t know that I don don’t know that I hate her. I don’t think I hate her. I just, it’s don don’t wanna see her in a truck. Why? Or even something that’s adjacent to a truck. You know what I mean? Like, I, I just don’t, I don’t put her back in her Lenin, you know what I’m saying? Like don don’t know. It’s, she’s got whatever is like hip. It’s like a PR person just telling her what to get because she’s gotta have like whatever is the, why

Sean P. Holman (14m 16s):

Are we talking about Kim Kardashian on her podcast?

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (14m 17s):

Don don’t know, but she, she’s driving a cyber truck and it bugs cares. don don’t know bugs me.

Sean P. Holman (14m 21s):

Oh, okay. You drive a TRX that bugs me. Why do you get a T Rx?

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (14m 24s):

Right? It’s true. Anyway.

Sean P. Holman (14m 26s):

Should bug you. Hey Lighting, Have, You Heard.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (14m 28s):


Sean P. Holman (14m 29s):

No. Ford is back on pace for its recalls. 2022 to 2024 Bronco Mavericks have been recalled for malfunctioning taillights. Can you guess the number?

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (14m 42s):

All of them

Sean P. Holman (14m 43s):

Ford Maverick trucks might have taillights that fail to illuminate even though their brake lights will still work. This recall covers 242,669. Oh

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (14m 55s):

Oh my ouch. 240,000.

Sean P. Holman (15m 1s):


Jay “Lightning” Tilles (15m 2s):

Oh my gosh.

Sean P. Holman (15m 3s):

That’s, that’s a lot.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (15m 5s):

I wonder if it’s a, what’s causing

Sean P. Holman (15m 7s):

It? Well they say, they say it’s a calibration of the body control module may falsely detect a current overload on one or both of the rear position lamp circuits. If that happens, the BCM will deactivate the circuit during a drive cycle to protect it. The end result is that one or both taillights will not work as intended. It says the problem does not impact the brake lights or the high bound stoplights, the turn signal or the headlights forward. Noted that the Maverick employees two position bulbs on a single circuit and the body control module was calibrated to the current draw for just one of those. So it sounds like it might be a software update. Software update. Yeah. don don’t

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (15m 44s):

Know. That’s what it sounds like. Yeah, so it says you can definitely reflash the bbc. They

Sean P. Holman (15m 46s):

Set, said a faulty calibration made its way into the production in February of 2021 and was taken outta production March 21st, 2024. And they said, Ooh,

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (15m 56s):

That’s a long run of faulty

Sean P. Holman (15m 58s):

Software. Yeah, they said they found several diagnostic ’cause of the Ford’s critical concern review group and they said 11 warranty claims that were possibly related. And then data from 4,727 connected vehicles showed faults for the same code. So I

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (16m 11s):

Guess it does suck when You hit the brakes hard and the car just rear ends you because

Sean P. Holman (16m 14s):

No brakes brakes work. It’s just your tail lamps that don’t

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (16m 16s):

Illuminate. No, I’m saying the car behind you doesn’t see that’s, that’s the whole thing is you’re gonna get it rear ended. Right. But

Sean P. Holman (16m 21s):

The the brake lights still work. It’s the tail lamps that aren’t working. Oh,

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (16m 26s):

Just regular, like daytime running lights

Sean P. Holman (16m 28s):

Or you’re just lights on, running lights. Yeah. So it’s, I’m guaranteeing you, you yelled at a maverick owner for not having their headlights on and they did. Nope. And they did.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (16m 36s):

No, I haven’t yelled at a single maverick owner

Sean P. Holman (16m 38s):

Then you missed

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (16m 39s):

It. I have been shooting. I’ve, I’m up to about 20. I was gonna turn it into like one of our rants that we shoot every once in a while I have video of like over 20 vehicles without their headlights on, on my phone right here.

Sean P. Holman (16m 49s):

Only 20.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (16m 50s):

I mean there’s been more. I just give up. I don’t more than 20. I feel like,

Sean P. Holman (16m 53s):

I feel like you could do better.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (16m 54s):

I don’t need anymore.

Sean P. Holman (16m 56s):

Hey, Lighting Have, You Heard. No.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (16m 58s):


Sean P. Holman (16m 59s):

So it turns out our spy photographers have been busy and the 2025 Ram heavy duty big horn crew Cab Dooley has been spotted with camo on it. Mm. Interesting though. It’s not the light duty cab, which I believe I said on the show that I would not be the, the light duty cab. It’s still the current DJ cab and the one that

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (17m 20s):

Looks like the 1500 but isn’t

Sean P. Holman (17m 23s):

The interior looks like the 1500 but isn’t the outside still looks like the, the older truck

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (17m 28s):

To me they’re so similar. They really are so similar. They did a really good job of making ’em look really close.

Sean P. Holman (17m 33s):

Not when You see ’em. You know, you can tell it’s the older truck when You see ’em side by side. Hmm. So it looks like by the camo there’s gonna be some new headlights, taillights, updated grill I’m sure to match the, the new 15 hundreds for 2025. And not, not a whole lot of stuff to talk about other than I think the new screens, the interior mods, those

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (17m 55s):

All get changed. What, what engine did they choose since they ditched Cummins?

Sean P. Holman (17m 58s):

They have not ditched Cummins. Oh. I don’t know why you keep saying that. At least not yet. So anyway, it’ll be interesting to see if the grill allows for additional airflow that can make that big old Cummins breathe easier. And then my guess is that the six speed is in is gonna go bye-Bye. We’ve talked about possibly the ZF power line eight speed automatic they need at

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (18m 17s):

Least eight. I mean you can’t do, you’re, you’re competing against 10 speeds. You know,

Sean P. Holman (18m 20s):

I think, yeah, I think that eight speed could be a, a great, great option for that truck. So anyway, for those of you who are, are waiting for the new one, it’s still the older exterior cab design, but it’s been freshened and probably like GM used to do, there’ll be a whole bunch of changes on the frame side and it’ll be the same old cab with the updated interior. Hey, Lighting, Have, You Heard.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (18m 43s):

No, no.

Sean P. Holman (18m 45s):

So BF Goodrich finally, finally has announced that the KO three will be replacing the KO two. And this makes me super Well we knew

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (18m 54s):

That already. Hold we, we we knew this

Sean P. Holman (18m 55s):

Well it it was on the Chevy Oe. Yeah. And the four Raptor oe. Yeah. And that’s the only two tire sizes. They haven’t done any kind of blitz on it. There was no information about it. We knew what it was gonna Well it’s official now. Yeah, it’s official. Well

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (19m 7s):

They had to release it

Sean P. Holman (19m 9s):

To the aftermarket dude. It’s been over 10 years since the KO two came out. Still one of my favorite tires. And then by early 2026 they’ll have a hundred new sizes of the KO three a hundred. A hundred. Yeah. So the KO three has a new tread pattern that is designed to improve wear, especially on gravel. They said that the new 3D locking sites give you better even wear proof, traction and mud and snow. And the new KO three will have a three peak mountain snowflake rating, which is great for those who live in severe snow areas if you’re impacted by harsh winters. Okay. There’s also serrated shoulders and mud phobic bars and durability has been one of the biggest areas of improvement for the new KO three.

Sean P. Holman (19m 52s):

There’s a new tire compound that is designed for all terrain use, resist chunking, and also sidewall improvements to improve sidewall punctures and things like pinch flats and some stuff that the older tires could, could have. So the new tire launches this month may, in 13 sizes, there’ll be 17 more sizes in August. And by October even the 22 inch wheels. Sadly though flotation sizes like the beloved 37 12 50 17 Yes. That I need for my rig. Yes.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (20m 24s):

Oh, they’re gonna be last

Sean P. Holman (20m 25s):

To launch. They’re they’re gonna be next year. So if you guys are looking for those, you’re gonna have to wait a little bit longer. So

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (20m 32s):

Aren’t those the most popular sizes?

Sean P. Holman (20m 34s):

Well, in the aftermarket, but they’re, I think they’re going after the OE replacement sizes. Oh and the plus zeros. Oh yeah. Gotcha. Get those in in for now.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (20m 42s):

Yeah. That’s the big market.

Sean P. Holman (20m 43s):

So I got super excited about it. I mean, super excited about it and talking to BFG, they’re like, oh yeah, and oh, you’ll have to wait a little while longer. It’s like, ah, man, because I, I love the KO two, it’s, it’s a great tire. I’ve run, I’ve run those tires on a dozen vehicles and I can’t wait to to ride on the KO threes. Now the Ranger Raptor driver went on, had the KO threes and I thought they were great in the mud and the slop a big improvement over the current tire. So

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (21m 10s):

No, honestly though, was it a big noticeable difference?

Sean P. Holman (21m 14s):

Sean P. Holman (23m 45s):

So that’ll be available on Trail BOS and zero two Trims, which is the off-Road front bumper package. So you’ll be able to get the off-Road bumper with the Safari bar off-Road bumper pod lights, 30 inch grill mounted off-Road light bar wiring harness for the Off-Road. Bumper lights, accessory switch kit, accessory power distribution box and performance skid plate. That’d be on the Trail Boss only. This package is a LPO or dealer installed option for The truck. So any of you who are looking for that, I would select those bad boy packages and get it all done with your warranty.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (24m 17s):

Sean P. Holman (24m 19s):

But our listeners still could. Yeah,

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (24m 21s):

Absolutely. Alright,

Sean P. Holman (24m 22s):

Lighting one last time. Have You Heard.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (24m 25s):

Sean P. Holman (24m 27s):

Dude. Did you see the post on Instagram with our friends over at taser at Z Automotive?

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (24m 34s):

No, I didn’t. But I do follow Z Automotive and their social media manager is prolific. Did

Sean P. Holman (24m 40s):

You see the ones always posting? Did you see the ones from Jeep Beach where he was walking in the crowd? He’s like, you don’t know who I am. I have all these followers and thought it was so funny. No, I was, I was cracking up. What

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (24m 50s):

Are they launching? What are they doing? What is Josie coming up with next?

Sean P. Holman (24m 53s):

We need to have Josie on the phone because I, I think you’re gonna like this.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (24m 60s):

Okay. Is it for my truck or is it George? Is it Jeep or is

Sean P. Holman (25m 5s):

It They’re launching a few new products here in the next few weeks. Okay. They have the ary kit.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (25m 13s):

Auxiliary kit kit.

Sean P. Holman (25m 13s):

Right. You like that? Yeah, you like that. So backlit buttons, sway bar functionality is seen in the OEM controls for Jeeps. This one’s for you for those wanting to run larger tires on the RAM trucks, but sick of having your park sense unavailable. Yep. That fix is coming. No

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (25m 27s):

Way. Yeah. Really And wonder how they did

Sean P. Holman (25m 30s):

That? Check this out. Okay. Brand new plug and play device that will not void your warranty, that does not have to interface or change tune wise with your ECU for three 90 twos. That removes the speed limiter. And can you do a drum roll please? Mr. Lighting

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (25m 49s):

Removes, removes what don don’t know

Sean P. Holman (25m 54s):

Doing the Lord’s work. Removes and deletes MDS, which is four cylinder mode. Do you know how huge that is? Okay.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (26m 4s):

Everyone hates four cylinder mode. All of our exhaust. That’s like, that’s as bad as auto stop start.

Sean P. Holman (26m 8s):

It’s bad. Like I know they say no drone like on my mag flow or the borderline exhaust and stuff like that. The drone is gnarly in four cylinder mode in V eight mode. It’s perfect. Everything

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (26m 17s):

Be is awesome. I didn’t even know that you had four cylinder mode

Sean P. Holman (26m 20s):

On your truck dude’s off because So when I’m off road, right? If I am in this exact, like the V eight, if I’m not in off-road mode where it’s keeping the revs high, which I try not to be, ’cause it burns a lot of gas. If I’m in regular mode, you know, just off road, it’ll, there’s a, a place between like second and fourth gear somewhere in there where the RPMs and the gear are and I’m just cruising like 20 miles an hour. Just an awful drone and it goes into four. Oh my God. It’s just, and it permeates your body. It’s horrible. And every time I, you know, our, our buddy Tyler at Tom’s four by four center out on the East coast, we’ve talked Tyler Garrett, we’ve had him on the show and they make a non smog legal kit that removes all the MDS and I was like, man, I wish I’d lived there.

Sean P. Holman (27m 2s):

’cause I’d be all about having that dynam. Mine plus MDS is not super reliable over the long term according to some people. So I don’t know what the device is. It’s, they say they’re working the install instructions di the devices are made, but I’m sitting here like drooling and where I’m like,

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (27m 17s):

So this is not an upgrade to a taser. This is

Sean P. Holman (27m 21s):

Its own animal. No, this is its own animal that’s supposed to be plug and play. don don’t know if it intercepts a signal or a bolts to the engine or what it does. I don’t know anything about it other than they’ve teased it. And I like wrote to Josie, I’m like, Hey

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (27m 32s):


Sean P. Holman (27m 33s):

Wink wink. I’m super stoked on this new stuff. So

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (27m 36s):

Can I have a test unit please?

Sean P. Holman (27m 38s):

Well I’m like, hey, can we get you back on the podcast to talk about it? Yeah. So he’s gonna come back on. But for all of you Wrangler owners and I’m pretty sure also 3 92 anything. So Durango Charger, challenger, all you, all of us that have that issue. Yeah, dude,

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (27m 52s):

I’m so glad I don’t have that issue. I wonder why they didn’t do. Yeah,

Sean P. Holman (27m 56s):

But you have other issues like your park sense doesn’t work’s

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (27m 58s):

Lifted well, not, not anymore dude. Sounds like I can finally correct my Speedo and not have my park sense turned off.

Sean P. Holman (28m 4s):

Z Automotive doing the Lord’s work. So Wow. I’m stoked. So if you guys don’t follow them and you’ve got a taser or you don’t follow them and you’re a a Mopar guy gal, go to at z Automotive on Instagram and keep up to date. The website’s supposed to be updated soon, but dude, this is exciting for us. Mopar folk, really exciting.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (28m 24s):

I love guys who hack the, the factory computers. It’s awesome.

Sean P. Holman (28m 28s):

I I just, I just love that they, I know it’s something they’ve been working on for a really long time and now that they’re they’re solid about it coming out. I’m, I’m like down, dude,

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (28m 36s):

That’s cool.

Sean P. Holman (28m 37s):

I’m so down. That’s like the only thing I don’t like about my Wrangler is force cylinder remote. Every time I hear it, I have, it reminds

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (28m 43s):

Me of all the vehicles that you, where you don’t want it to be down, I guess, I guess freeway driving, right? That’s where you would use it. Don’t want, you don’t wanna off road,

Sean P. Holman (28m 51s):

But it doesn’t go, it doesn’t really use it that much on the freeway anyway. Like it does it cruise a little bit, but it’s not, it’s not, listen, I have a brick that has a roof rack with bricks on top of that and it’s a brick on a brick on a brick with mud terrain tire. Like, come on. Like you what? Well here’s your quarter mile per gallon at this point.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (29m 9s):

It’s like whatever you need, like you need all Yeah, exactly. Are they doing it for fuel economy?

Sean P. Holman (29m 12s):

No, they’re doing it because performance and, and people are tired of their engine going in and out that

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (29m 16s):

No, no, no, no, no. Why did, why is Mopar?

Sean P. Holman (29m 19s):

Oh, I’m sure. Yeah. ’cause they don’t have auto start stop, which is a, so don don’t have that issue. Like every other g has auto start stop. So one of the reasons I love the 3 92 and I got it is no dual batteries. So you don’t have to worry about the auto start stop, no auto start stop. And it has a lot of

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (29m 36s):

Horsepower and it’s noisy. That’s where you

Sean P. Holman (29m 38s):

Bought it. Pull that too. But I mean it doesn’t have a supercharger, it doesn’t have a turbo like the four by Eess do. It’s just a big old stupid lump of a V eight that makes a ton of power and torque and has a big regular battery that I don’t have to worry about wearing out and, and auto start stop not working, causing all these electrical, it’s like, just take out the four cylinder mode and I’m gonna be happy. That’s all I’m saying. Wow. Look at this. Oh dude, you might have the perfect Jeep. I’m, I’m getting closer every day. Yeah.

Jay “Lightning” Tilles (30m 3s):

Wow. Congratulations.

Sean P. Holman (30m 4s):

Well, let’s see if Josie responds to my email first.
