Re: Yellowranger1's Blue Wagon

What you described above is pretty much Carli's suspension design philosophy "softer ride with more control and bottom-out resistance in the backcountry". Do you plan on getting their rear coils too? Yup! I've had a pair of their rear 3" coils sitting on my rack for a while now. I picked these up f...

Re: Yellowranger1's Blue Wagon

Oh bullshit!!!!! :lol: Hahaha, I admit I'm torn on getting them dirty, but it'll be worth it! So, drove the truck a bit yesterday after work... Front feels great on road with the Carli valving, similar to stock, but a bit sportier without any harshness over expansion joints, etc... The rear is a di...

Re: Yellowranger1's Blue Wagon

Nice upgrades, did you have the adjusters added to help with rear squat/sag when loaded or something else? Time to those Kings through some paces out in the desert! They really won't do anything for squat (like adding pressure to an air shock) since any additional weight will just push through the ...

Re: Yellowranger1's Blue Wagon

:rockon: Is that a Dethloff skid under there? Sure is! I love it! It seems crazy that they'd go through the trouble of designing and including the factory skids on these things, yet leave such a critical area so vulnerable :doh: . I hadn't smashed my pan or anything like Mike had, but I've tapped t...

Re: Yellowranger1's Blue Wagon

I got home from work a bit early yesterday... I'd had a redbull and was feeling motivated. I got out the jack stands and started tearing down the front suspension. I took my time with tear down and install, cleaned up the frame and coil buckets a bit, and from start to finish it took me about 4hrs a...

Re: Suspension question...again

Get that skid plate in yet? Hahaha The truss seems a lot more necessary on the 14+ trucks than the earlier trucks. The earlier trucks go tube-diff-tube, and that’s pretty much all that’s going to bend unless you hit really hard and then you can bend the upper ‘C’ of the knuckle. On the new trucks i...

Time to truss that axle. :cheers: Not yet! But it's definitely in the cards for it down the road. I don't plan to beat on it as hard as some of the DTX guys do (thats what my Ranger is for) but it's definitely hard to keep your foot out of it when you're in the dirt lol. The truss is cheap insuranc...

Re: Suspension question...again

Ordered some Carli Hemi 3" coils and 2.5s from CJC on Friday, and got the delivery notification by noon on Tuesday. Really excited to get some real shocks on the blue whale! Now I need to lay down a bunch of miles on my 35" RT's so I can justify upping to a 37"... 20k on them and still lots left in ...

Re: exhaust

I had a larger 22" Magnaflow put on, and I'm much happier. Truck doesn't give me a headache anymore, still sounds aggressive, but not annoying. I'm going to drive it a while, see how I feel about it after a long trip and then decide whether or not to add a small resonator similar to the MF19200 kit.

Re: Suspension question...again

Looks great! Where did you measure to? I'm interested to see exactly how much you gained. I'm still trying to decide what coils to go with on mine. Thuren .5, 1.5, or a Carli Hemi coil that I can pick up and install same day along with some 2.5s...

Re: Yellowranger1's Blue Wagon

*I'll add pictures to this post later today* Few updates, I think I solved the small wobble/feedback I was getting through the steering wheel. I installed the Thuren front track bar, no real improvement with that shake, although the truck does feel a bit more solid over bumps. I also installed a Thu...

Re: exhaust

So I was forced to cut off the dingleberry resonator Friday night... Truth be told, I was waiting for an excuse to justify taking a sawzall to it, and I got that excuse when I went to remove the factory track bar bolt. Well, I should have been able to loosen the clamp, and rotate it down which would...

Re: Yellowranger1's Blue Wagon

Haven't tried an alignment yet. Aside from that symptom, there aren't any other noticeable signs of alignment being out off like wandering or pulling side to side. It's definitely worth a shot though, might be something barely out of whack. Thanks for the suggestion!

Not a whole lot going on with the Blue Whale lately, been busy with work and friends weddings, etc. so no dirt under the tires... Couple small updates coming for the truck though!

Awesome! I think a skid like that would be well worth the minimal ground clearance loss. Here's an old picture, but I'm working on removing the rear diff cover lol

Maybe a couple of drops from mine. I wish there were a better solution for the rear diff. Personally im not crazy about the tubing style of the purple cranium. I'd love something similar to the Carli or maybe something like this? I've never run anything like this so no personal experience with how t...

Re: Diff guards

The logo on the Carli guard is just a decal. Came off clean and easy, I peeled it off soon as I opened mine up. Cheap insurance, Carli and Purple Cranium are both very stout. I went with Carli because i like the plate construction and the skid that runs under the housing. https://uploads.tapatalk-cd...
