Re: #BastardWagon Build

In a sense yes!! I just bought it a new home! And been accumulating parts. Working with damagewagon on rear link design. Once I get set up in the shop better the truck will start coming apart. It's going to get exciting! Thanks for the post bump

Re: Dodge Off Road brand reliability

I'm really neutral about dor. I have their long bent arms. No issues with ordering. No issue with customer service. Product was excellent. Product was shipped exactly when I was told it would. Had to hit a corner of the plate with a grinder for just one bolt clearance (1/4"). Very happy. Yet everyon...

Re: Another Death Wobble post

Dual dampeners will not be a solution. Tie rods and track bar are the most likely cause. Even the smallest amount of play can cause problems.

Re: Tire Feedback

Whew!! Happy to hear you got them properly balanced. I argue with so many people about beads I gave up. Lots of shops try to do it but always say no.

There are some tires that just won't balance well at all

Re: Tire Feedback

37" tires are not too big to spin balance. Lazy cheap shops will tell you that. One shop told me that years ago. I walked out and went somewhere else. Tires look good!

Re: Ridgid dual 18v compressor FYI

I had a chance to buy one for just over $100. I ended up not getting it thpugh. I have a few rigid batteries but they are only 3ah and they suggest 2 - 4ah batteries. I couldn't justify it. I ended up buying a bigger makita instead. If you have no other options though and have the batteries it's not...

Re: Carli Radius Arms

I found carli 3" coils on my truck were only 1.75" gain over stock. The Thuren's were just shy of the 3" advertised. I have another set of carli coils not installed that are 3". Who knows. Maybe they will be closer to 3" for someone and much farther for another. A lot of aftermarket parts seem to ac...

This has been a Cummins feature for years, but not the Hemi. They advertised this as a feature on the Sterling Bullet with the Hemi and PTO package.

Re: Oil Loss/Consumption???

By chance. And this is likely a small chance are you filling oil up and checking it before you run it and get the filter full? Run it for 20 seconds at bout 1500 rpm then shut down and check oil. I know you probably do but some times that happens. You could easily lose most of a quart to that new Em...

I picked the amsoil and don valved to suit. What I have seen With my 7100s is when I did rebuilds the amsoil oil was always clean and clear after 20-30k km. Th bilstien oil was dark and dirty. And this time when I pulled the king oil it too was dark and dirty looking. I tend to believe amsoils claim...

Re: Kill-switch for electronic nannies

I will clarify. 80% of my driving is on gravel. And half of that is in winter with snow and ice. Abs has tried to kill me for years in every vehicle I've owned that had it. Many of those vehicles either ended up hitting deer or moose or taking the ditch because instead of locking up on gravel the "s...
