AEV's hardware looks terrible. For the money they should use better bolts.
All grade-8’s aren’t the same. Living in the rust belt is tough on vehicles, and I can’t live my life through a bottle of fluid film.

Not that I need a front camera but my wife is the worst driver ever. This also bypasses the speed lockout and gives me the SRT wallpaper. I can add a third camera or a media device with composites.

Thuren 2.5 kit installed

Took 14 days to complete a little each night, was not super fun. Pretty straightforward, but it is a pain doing this on your back, in the dark at night. Had passing help from my 11yr old, wife and a neighbor during certain parts. Good thing the PW is not my DD. Took it in for an alignment after, the...

Re: What Exhaust?

I know in MDS some resonate. I never run in MDS. What Catback should I do? Any performance gains? I remember on my Vortec 8100, dyno proven was twin magnaflows for about 20 rwhp. I assume this exhaust is more efficient, but like my second gen, less junk under the truck is better. (I did a 3" magnaf...

Re: Removal of rear sway bar?

After installing my 2.5” King Thuren kit, I test drove without the rear sway bar. There was a noticeable small amplitude sway that I think was within the front sway bar dead spot, and not great enough that the shocks could damp it fast enough for my liking. I made DIY spacers, got longer bolts, put...

You can just flip the rear sway bar. I'm going to remove mine in Moab and when I put it back on I'll flip it.

That’s an impressive pile of parts! Going to feel like a whole new truck. What stage valving did you opt for? Apologies if you said already, I looked but didn’t see.

Re: 2018 Power Wagon issues

Can’t say I really care about the truck being gas or diesel. AES makes any RAM diesel into a Prospector so it was an option. What I am having a difficult time with is over all shamefully embarrassing fit to finish, and over all lack of accountability toward failing to manufacture a realizable truck...

Finally got someone to build me a custom bumper. I am very happy with how it turned out.
Congrats on that new bumper. What's the weight, over 100lbs? Is it ½ or ¼ plate? Does it mount to the snow plow fangs or the tow hooks?
