Re: (New) Toyo A/T III

Yea, the only issue right now is available sizing is extremely limited. But that will change.

Should be a great tire!

Re: Airlifter 5000 Ultimate airbags w/ Daystar cradles '14+

I didnt even add air to the bags here...mainly because I dont have onboard air (and I wasnt traveling very far).

After reading this it sounds like the f250 gassers will most likely have a more off road friendly suspension compared to the diesel and f350 variants...

Re: A major wheel vendor would like some input

I didn't want to bring up AEV for various reasons either, but they do seem like the go-to for wheels that fit the two size needs. But personally I think it would be nice to have a couple more style options than what they offer. The ones with the holes, are IMHO, not very attractive. Yes, I agree......

Re: A major wheel vendor would like some input

Not to toot AEV’s horn, but my opinion is they have a lot of R&D that goes into their products. And their wheels most likely are set at some of the best backspacing/offset for our trucks. The 8.5” wide version (for 37’s) is a +27/5.8” setup, while the 10” wide version (for 40” tires) is a -15.6/4.8”...

Re: 100% cure for death wobble

The most important jobs of a steering stabilizer are to damp the smallest initial movements, and to output a lot of force at a very low shaft speed to resist big jerks to the steering. Emulsion shocks like almost every Rancho, Bilstein, Fox, etc. do poor jobs of these because the mixed nitrogen in ...

Re: Air Lift Bags and Uptravel

I don’t remember the number, I believe it was about an inch less travel. You usually will have even less than that due to the rapid spring rate increase of bags as you compress them unless you have them fully collapsed at ride height. This is true. I run my bags at 0 psi most of the time, as they a...

Although I figured this out about 10 years ago... I figured I would share. Like many of you I was throwing parts at the problem. Finally broke down and took it to the dealership. The mechanic came back after 10 mins and said it was the steering stabilizer. I proceeded to argue with him that I just ...

people put on 35s, never hit the dirt and blow an "HD" 66rfe transmission.

FCA would gladly F themselves.
And they also go 100k+ miles being beat on with 37’s and 40’s. Whats your point?

Trans can blow in 100% stock form with no abuse at all. Shit happens. To all manufacturers.

Its not horrible. But I have no actual numbers to go by. Wish I would have pulled the cools and took measurements with the stock bumps and then the bags.

The fan on my 16 would sometimes roar for a mile or so down the road after a cold start. No rhyme or reason to it and it would eventually stop.
Mine has done that many times before. However its been a while now that I think about it. Hmmm.

Re: 100% cure for death wobble

I have always been a believer that a steering damper does have its purpose, but curing death wobble is not one of them...but they can often mask it, however.

Well, I guess if they can mask/stop it, then its a win win regardless LOL.
