Re: Dodge Ram Power Wagon Global Production Numbers 2005-2015

The immediate area doesn’t have a lot of places to wheel, but if you’re willing to drive a bit there are some fantastic places. Texas has everything from seashore to mountain, rockcrawling to desert running. If you do make the move hit me up. Me and rodeoflyer have been meaning to get a Texas GTG go...

Re: PWJouster's Build - 2018 Power Wagon "TrailWhale"

I still run an old spod in a Jeep, but moved over to switchpros for my truck and any new builds. May want to give them a look see if you don’t get the spod working to your satisfaction

https://www.bluesea.com/products/7622100B/ML-ACR_Automatic_Charging_Relay_Manual_12V_%5BBulk%5D This is the one I’d recommend. It gives manual control as a backup to its automatic operation.

Re: PWJouster's Build - 2018 Power Wagon "TrailWhale"

Absolutely, if you’re just looking for maximum comfort you already got the secret sauce nailed with your shock valving and running disconnected. Only thing you’re really lacking is 37’s. They do a tremendous amount for muting small and/or high frequency chop and minor irregularities that otherwise i...

Re: PWJouster's Build - 2018 Power Wagon "TrailWhale"

One of the best things I ever did was ditch the stock swaybar in favor of a torsion bar. Biggest single improvement to my truck. At least on my gen power wagon, torsion bar was way better than no bar or running disconnected, and no bar was way better than stock. The tuned suspension works wonders in...

Re: Adjustable Rear Lift Shackle

Another vote for the Thuren shackles here too. Plus they’ll help smooth out the feel of the rear suspension. Makes for less binding swapping from rubber bushings to delrin and stainless

Yes, take that apart and grease it. I had to do that on mine as well. Chasing down a little clunk in the Steering.

Re: Thuren 3.0 KING on 2018 Powerwagon!

I welded in the Carli shock mounts out back and had to cut the bed sheet metal in a couple places to fit my 3,0 bypasses shaft down. It’s not a lot of cutting really, doubt if you could make it happen with stock mounts though

Re: Thuren 3.0 KING on 2018 Powerwagon!

Lots of good advice in these last few posts^^^^ Kings are a like most “high performance” parts. They add to the headache of owning the vehicle if you drive it normally and don’t really use them to their potential. It’s more stuff to maintain, another element of maintenance etc. Kings tuned to be plu...

Re: Front Driveshaft Grease Fitting doesn't want to take grease

I’ve done it a few times with a needle/cone fitting. It works, you just have to hold it with man hands firmly into the fitting and hit it squarely. I don’t know if mine is that specific brand or not because I’ve had it so long, but mine has a threaded end just like a grease gun so you can swap out t...
