Re: Possible camp out in central Texas?

I’d be down for that! I’ve met up with rodeoflyer out at my place near blanco before. I think that would be great to meet some more centex power wagon guys and have some fun. There’s at least 3-4 other guys in the general area. A Texas get together would be awesome

Re: Borgeson 800123 box

Sadly there’s not a great box out there that I’ve found. I’ve tried all of them including the Borgeson and have wound up with a big 6 bolt rebuilt and tapped for hydro by Howe Steering. That’s lasted the longest for me going on two years so far.

Re: Thuren Test Drive

A couple points to consider. your tire pressures are way high for dirt time. Lower them down and the washboard compliance will be substantially better. Kings will break in just like an engine or gears or anything else mechanical. Give them about 5k miles before you make any decisions about valving. ...

Re: 2018 Power Wagon Brake Issues

You basically have to be doing something ultra stupid to get abs to engage on dry pavement in a newer ram truck. It’s not something that’s easy or safe to accomplish really. There’s so much computer manipulation going on to optimize braking performance that it’s difficult to get the truck out of its...

Re: Give plasti dip a try

I think it came out looking really nice, good job! Bronze on Black is badass.

Plastidip is some pretty useful stuff. I used it on my external lowrance gps antenna on the truck. It’s held up in the Texas sun now for a couple years just fine

Re: 2018 Power Wagon Brake Issues

You can engage abs on dry pavement, but it takes some real dedication and I wouldn’t recommend it around other traffic.

Re: xfer case linkage

To the guys that have done this and have a noticeable increase in noise and/or vibration, try adjusting the linkage so there’s about 1/8-1/4” free play in it. That’s how I set mine up when I came up with the mod and it hasn’t increased nvh at all on my truck. The trucks newer than 3rd gens I can’t s...

Re: Any Pics of Hutchinson Wheels?

The 2 piece seem easier to do tire repair in the field. Are they? I would not be disassembling a wheel in the dirt. Tire repair kits can fix the tire from the outside. Only the big patches like you’d get a tire shop to install require removing the tire. If you get a flat from more than an easily re...

I don’t have any experience with the irok radials, but I run the bias ply on my rock Jeep. They’re tough and grip like crazy. Loud as hell on pavement but decent at speed as far as grip and control. I’d be very curious to hear how they do in a radial

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.

A generic TC style pump will work. Much cheaper and can be had in higher output as well. Just needs a little work to mount a reservoir etc.

Re: Easy way to fix driver's side lean?

Actually had a similar problem myself, the alignment monkey had my cam bolts 180* out from each other and it caused the whole body to lean like an inch to one side. Fixed alignment and the lean disappeared. That’s on a 4 link truck

Re: Converting overall costs for capability

Low_sky has a good idea with the take off smartbar + evo. That’s certainly a good alternative to a torsion bar. I’d wager you’d be happier with 4.56 gears if on 37’s, which is a point in favor of swapping oem power wagon axles in if you can find them, oh wait, they only come with 4.10’s now lol Good...

Re: Converting overall costs for capability

Get the Cummins mega and just do arb lockers and a Thuren or Carli torsion swaybar along with whatever suspension floats your boat.
