Brahaha don't count on their quoted timelines. A few years ago, they told me they would have the tuner ready for the 2014 6.4 in a month and six months later it still wasn't available.

What pressure did you run in the Duratracs when they would "carcass roll" on the highway?
65-68. Really didn't matter. Felt like you were driving an unresponsive boat. Night and day difference.
So imagine what it must feel like for the guys that run the Duratracs at 40 psi :lol:

Re: Finally got new tires for the 16.

... Can't even describe how much better the truck handles on the roads here in WV. You no longer have to wait for the tire to decide to go along with the steering input in and out of the curves. No carcass roll like the Duratracs. I was able to just steer the truck through most of the curves that w...

Re: "Bertha"...my 2013

I assume you bolted the receivers to the mounting plate that the factory rings were bolted to? If so, beware, that factory mount is not as strong as you might hope. They will likely bend and deform if you use one of your hooks as a sole recovery point. If you beefed up the factory ring mount, please...

For the past two years I switched over to "Quick links" , "New posts" and never have to look at the stickies. There were too many stickies even back then!

Get rid of the sticky status on most of the threads!

He's not the only one. I think Lee blew up a set of Nitro 9.25. I believe Lee was towing someone out of mud, in reverse. Operator error. Chris S in Moab knew what he was doing on the original install and the culprit came down to the ring gear hardware supplied by Nitro being too short. The bolts al...
