Re: Fender Flares

The only half ton with the short 5.5’ box is the full crew cab model, which can also come with the full size 6.5’ box like our trucks have. The short 4 door and regular cab come with the same size box we have also. Never once have I seen a long bed 1500 with Ramboxes, is it even an option? I see th...

Re: Fender Flares

The 1500’s have shorter boxes and a different design, the lids won’t swap. They all will end up warping eventually so the body lines don’t line up. I truly believe if they had a latch on either end instead of just one in the center, 95% of the warping and tape issues would go away. A spring pushing ...

So fighting the dealership with my rambox covers as well. Did you end up pulling them and sticking them yourself? About to tell them to replace the whole f()*&king bed. You can pull them off yourself, but doing so without damaging the paint by bending the plastic is not easy, which is why the deale...

Re: Wagonless

Ever since I corrected my computer for 35’s mine shows averaging 16mpg for a round trip to work and back which is about 180 miles. About 1/3 of it is close to sea level, which helps, and with no traffic it can creep closer to 18mpg. I set the cruise control at the speed limit, 65, don’t need any tic...

Re: White lettering on tires

All racing products area short lived fad. Its racing “Short lived” is relative, your King shocks are a racing product. One could also say automobiles are a short lived fad in the scope of humanity’s time on Earth, but that’s deep and I’m sober. Oh, and the only thing that compliments a tall red tru...

Re: White lettering on tires

Wait until your next balance/rotation and have them flipped. In the meantime you could try tire black. It’s not tire shine, it’s a gel with some kind of black stain in it that makes your tires look new, not like glazed donuts. Works great for those of us who live on dirt roads. It may black out your...

Re: Fender Flares

Finally got around to installing the flares after spending half a day removing the leftover tape on the truck. It was completely separated from the flares, but stuck pretty well to the body. Thank 3M for their eraser wheel, that thing is awesome. Anyways, here is the finished product. I'm usually no...

Re: 40-Inch Tire Discussion (Or anything bigger than 37's)

Has anyone ever tried Axletech Portals? Big money, but 5” of ground clearance is huge and you could probably run 40’s with those alone on factory geometry. Truss and hydro would be wise, though.

Re: 40-Inch Tire Discussion (Or anything bigger than 37's)

Quite a few Trophy Truck teams tried 42” race tires, went back to 39’s after a couple races, just sayin’... Accelerated wear and added mass like adeluca mentioned, even multi-million dollar teams came to the conclusion that bigger isn’t always better.

Re: Hardwired Lockers with OEM Knob

I took a look at that Evo disco a while back, it’s not exactly in a convenient spot to fumble with. A lot of cacti around here, I’m not fond of crawling under my truck while out exploring. If somebody could figure out how to wire that disconnect with an electric motor to turn the knob that can be ac...

Re: Update

They would be infinitely better, even still plastic and tape, if they latched on the outer ends as well. The rubber seal pushing up on a long piece of soft plastic held down in the center is what causes them to warp, which causes the tape to pull off. I just try to not look at it anymore, even adjus...

I follow you, I was saying the 0.5” fronts are opposite of the rears. Rears are taller coils but shorter once installed, fronts are shorter coils but taller once installed.

Re: Thuren 3.0 KING on 2018 Powerwagon!

But I did order with the additional 2-inches rear suspension travel. Whats that? Meaning the shocks have more travel than "normal" Kings? Or are the springs different too? Longer shock body for more travel. Keep in mind that Mikekey is an inch higher in the rear so the extended travel is a little m...
