Re: 37" tires with 4.10 for those who do have

If you only do work in the forward direction, it reduces to a question of optimization... If backing something heavy up a winding hill in 4Lo is in the picture, I would think twice about the "weaker" gear set. I've been in 4Lo reverse with the wheels taking turns breaking loose - stock gears - hopi...

Re: New motorcycle

Nice! I had a klr for a few years, really durable bikes and lots of fun for not much money. That one looks in great shape, nice find.

Re: Another PW lifted with Blocks and Spacers

35’s on factory wheels should be completely fine for you. I wouldn’t worry about a leveling kit at all. The thing about a leveling spacer is you also need to extend your bumpstop so you’re losing a bit of travel. If you find you want it leveled after you get the 35’s on there I’d suggest getting som...

Re: 2015 Needs a new battery

I’ve had 7 years of service out of my first group 65 odyssey without a hiccup and a year on this new one so far. Extra lighting air compressor vhf radio and occasional winch use. Never any trouble. Have two wranglers with them one of which is running dual batteries. Been 5 or 6 years on those so far...

Re: 2018 Power Wagon issues

For something like you’re experiencing I wouldn’t be surprised if a field engineer had to get involved eventually. A field engineer/tech rep looked at my truck and said the lifter going out was how all the trucks sounded and it was normal. He also missed all of the loose intake manifold bolts. Unle...

Re: 2018 Power Wagon issues

Having worked as a dealership master tech for many years, I can say with absolute confidence that most technicians are incapable of fixing modern automobiles beyond the basics. They’re simply not trained or knowledgeable enough to tackle more esoteric issues. There are always exceptions but they’re ...

Re: TrailWhalePowerwagon 2018 PW

I do poke fun at you, but it's meant to be light-hearted. If it's coming across as mean-spirited I'll stop. No harm intended. I gave up on researching bumpers and have started researching welders. Even the bumpers that claim to be Power Wagon friendly, or winch friendly, are still diesel bumpers de...

Re: TrailWhalePowerwagon 2018 PW

If you’re interested in tube bumpers maybe give pattonfab a look. They don’t have a power wagon specific option, but their frame horns work very well as the foundation of a custom tube bumper.

Don’t let the ribbing get to you sir, that’s just some people’s way. Cool truck for sure, and having lived in Florida for a couple years I can verify there’s plenty of opportunities to mangle a 4x4 there lol

Re: GPS
