Re: EMF steering linkage?

gents, I think I'm finally in the market to replace my linkage as well (knuckles to the pitman). Glad I found this before I decided on DOR...sorry Rusty. DamageWagon, do you have the part number(s) for the Mopar kit you recommend or do I have to buy individual parts? Going to replace the original d...

Re: FS: Brand new White Knuckle sliders

Pdavey has White Knuckles on his 2019 PW. Plus he's had them for a while. I was just under a few 19’s today and none had those vibration dampers. I don’t know if they are part of a trim package or are standard on Power Wagons. I’m very interested in how much of a difference they make. Maybe washboa...

guaranty the axles transfercase and drivetrain take a dump when real offroaders go to use it... PW has the best throttle mapping for low speed crawl control.

Re: Brakes slow to release.

The slide pins on all year dodges are horrible for seizing. As soon as the protective boot gets cut that pin seizes. Can cause some funky issues, rapid brake wear, occasional squealing that comes and goes, changes in brake feel. Do what the other guys said first to check the fluid because the slide ...

Re: What PSI for Thuren/King Steering Damper?

It's not adjustable. Comes pre charged. The older fox version I have on my 99 is and anything over about 60 or so would cause it to push the wheel too much.

Re: EasyDoesIt's Build - 2018 Power Wagon "White Rhino"

The Z36 pads are a nice modest improvement over stock brakes. I find they like a little bit of heat, once you get them a bit warm they grab well.

Glad you’re liking the skid plate, thank you man!

Sounds steep for brackets rated for 250lbs, might keep an eye on the rivers holding those rails in. It’s probably feasible if needed to remove the ramboxes and drill the rivers and add a reinforcement inside if it’s needed down the road. Thanks for the rating - wasn't sure what it was.

Re: Aluminum Driveshaft failures?

A few years ago I think we were all much less prepared in Moab and nobody was breaking anything. We were going much slower with a lot more spotting. Now everyone has 37’s and we go 2-3x as fast on trails and we break stuff.

I suggest carrying a spare spotter.

I have the Thuren drag link. It’s pure beefcake. It is heim style so you can’t perfectly adjust it like the factory drag link, otherwise it’s great. It steers a lot easier than my EMF link did and does not clunk. I can get you one if you’d like to go that route. I definitely recommend the factory Mo...
