10 inches of sidewall is the ideal for a street driven off-roader I’ve found.

Looking good! I think you’re going to like the red letters, I’ve been running them for years on a wrangler and they’re really well suited to dirt rock and sand.

Probably that or guys who bought a used wagon that someone had stripped the winch off of. The first one I looked at before I bought mine was without winch or cradle

Re: Wench mount broke

They only discontinue parts that have low sales volume for extended periods. There’s probably very few people breaking the winch cradle and it doesn’t make financial sense to continue producing and stocking a part that no one is buying

Without seeing pics hard to say, but generally if I were to attempt a repair of cast steel or iron I’d use flame spray transfer to fill in whatever void there was. Not something I’d do on an assembled rear end though. Pics for more detailed response. Some guys have good luck with mig tig or stick on...

Hydro bumps are absolutely irritating for normal around town driving. Especially as compared to boogies.

Ahh gotcha, I see the problem now. Definitely do a write up on the stinger install if that’s what you end up doing, I’m sure there’s lots of interest here for that. I’d like to see it anyway I was having a brain fart saying boogies and bags could work together, I was saying boogies but thinking hydr...

Re: Rr bump stops and air bags

The rear hydros mount outside the frame and strike on the upper leaf clamp plate. There is a crossbar between the sides to prevent unwanted frame flex. They’re awesome for hauling ass. For you, sounds to me like a combo of boogie bumps and either Carli long travel air bags or Firestone’s and daystar...

Re: Viair vs ARB

Last year I bought the portable ARB twin, thinking it would be a more flexible solution than on-board. It has worked well to air up 35s pretty quickly at 100% duty cycle. I'm now rethinking the "portable" direction - it is one more thing to have to remember, load, and secure in the truck. Bed space...

Re: Viair vs ARB

I’ve used several different viair compressors, but hardwired rather than in portable form. The 440 is definitely the way I’d go given your criteria. Perfect for occasional airing up. If you were going to do it on a more regular basis I’d opt for the 450 with its better duty cycle but sounds like tha...

Re: Viair vs ARB

I have the single arb as well as the dual and a co2 tank all in different vehicles. All pretty good options depending on usage, but if you’re just airing up tires 15-20 psi I’d definitely just get a viair if you’re wanting to keep it at $300 or less. You’ll get more bang for your buck with a viair t...
