Re: PW Tool Box Setup

Nice set up! I've got something similar in mine. I mounted my Jerry can racks (one fuel, one water) further back along my bed rails near the tailgate. The Hi Lift got mounted onto my bed rack. The cans and racks I got are from http://www.billet4x4.com/. They have NATO type cans available, and are DO...

Re: Group Buy of Iron Pig Off Road Rear Diff Skid

The below is a recent reply I made to Twin Stick over on that "other" forum. I am trying to look at this thing as objectively as possible, and not be "married" to one particular design. The skid itself is very strong...no question there. What seems to have most folks concerned about it is the attach...

Re: Seven years ago today...

Nice! Still loving mine....even though I haven't had mine near as long. It's been running just fine so far and I plan to keep it for as many years as I can. I'm sure you're of the same mind. For most PW owners....it's the Holy Grail of trucks! :rockon: Glad yours is still going strong! :cheers:

Yeah....they would certainly want to let all of us Power Wagon people know how to do things! Except we won't be able to hear them talking over the sound of their own fabrication awesomeness! :rofl:

Re: Group Buy of Iron Pig Off Road Rear Diff Skid

Yep, I saw both of those designs before. The first one is from AFE (I believe). I wrote them about it and they said that they did not plan on making one for the AAM 10.5 any time soon. The second one is by Nth Mobility (for XJ's & such) and I actually sent a picture of that one to Iron Pig as a star...

Re: DT Profab Steering Brace Question

Unless I am missing something,the brace attaches to the frame at two points where the swaybar does and then to the steering gear box sector shaft extension nut. None of which change their position whether the truck is lifted or not. Suspension increases or decreases in height should not affect the ...

DT Profab Steering Brace Question

Just got one of these the other day, along with some Kore bump stops. Before I start taking things apart under there, I am wondering if I need additional parts to do the install. I have the Readylift 2" leveling kit on mine. In the DT instructions, it states that if the vehicle is lifted, "special a...

Re: Group Buy of Iron Pig Off Road Rear Diff Skid

I know what you mean, Ken. I sat on the couch with the laptop for over an hour trying to formulate an appropriate response to PCP. I failed. Anything I came up with would have been ignorant, and I'm tired of that. FYI, PCP and 06trxwhatever( the guy who gave you the metalurgic/snowflake lesson) are...

Re: Group Buy of Iron Pig Off Road Rear Diff Skid

Just ran the skid overtop a couple 53 lb. Kettlebells from my garage gym. It didn't work out as planned, the skid just drug the KBs along underneath :doh: Well, they did not harm the skid in any way and no deflection noted. On to more testing as soon as I can get it to some off road trail network. O...

Re: Group Buy of Iron Pig Off Road Rear Diff Skid

Just an update, I was able to scrape the skid over a hard high point locally (cement) to determine if any deflection occurred. It contacted at the rear portion under the diff case. No deflection of the skid at all, just a scrape and a little paint removal from the skid. Also, after even closer inspe...
