Sliders

Believe the aluminess sliders have always been steel. Everything else they make is aluminum I believe. Their Ram sliders are an exception. There’s pictures you can google of a truck identical to mine that got t-boned in an intersection by a hatchback. The front of the car was annihilated; the Alumin...

Re: Shopping for a PW

I have an ex gov wagon. Plan to spend a lot on parts. Unique features I can think of; torn seat from gun holster, holes drilled in headlights for code 3 lighting, gun rack on headliner, gooseneck hitch in bed. I have replaced a lot on this truck. Everything gets worn out when someone takes a truck t...

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

I do agree with tim on the swaybar. I have run with and without a swaybar for a long time. A soft rate swaybar is the ideal balance. There are definitely times you want to have a swaybar for control, and times you want to be able to throw the body around and load the tires for a hard turn.

Unlock is a separate button, as apposed to turning the dial back. It may not be different but there is a chance. Let me get them to ask Ram. Suspension was raised 7MM in front per Ram and goes from 521 to 538 RTI. Just a guess, but they may be just fitting the buttons into the form factor of a swit...

Re: 2014+ FRONT DIFFERENTIAL COVER HELP

Carli and Purple Cranium are the top picks and are my suggestion. I highly recommend them. I see no benefit to a full new cover, but I definitely see downsides to the full covers. For example the cast iron ones commonly can deform from impact and develop leaks, and as the horse was beaten to death h...

Re: Year-round shock oil for cold weather

I think re-valving will depend heavily on what fluids you’re considering going between and what valving you’re looking at.

If you’re asking for a different fluid from the start then things should be put together in preparation for that.

Re: New Ignition Wires?

The Hemi has coil-on-plug ignition. How would those work? I think those are for a totally different application. I have not heard of the wires wearing out on a Hemi. It isn’t like a distributor system where the wire carries the direct ignition load, in our trucks the wire carries the low voltage pul...

Have questions. Does Thuren make the 3" to fit the 3G? Also, do they make the rear with a remote, not a piggyback? And can you run the rears upside down? I'm think rock clearance. i don't want chit hanging low. I believe you can custom order the 3” short bodies for only the 03-13 trucks and not 14-...

In Coeur d’Alene, Chevy 1500 with all the suspension from a 2500 swapped in. 380,000 miles on the clock haha. Plowing your own driveway is not the same as being a paid plow guy that is doing it 10 hours a day.

Re: Thuren 3.0 KING on 2018 Powerwagon!

Just to be an advocate for 98% of users, don’t discount the smaller/cheaper/less-cool shocks. 2.5+ shocks are performance shocks, and are not ‘better’ in general. They are way way superior in a lot of ways, but for most people they are the wrong choice. I have 3.0/2.5-Bypass shocks and wish I had 2....

Re: Rear dif issue?

I think the stock shafts with Spicer joints are a great combo. They’re very tough. I think I paid $35 per joint when I did mine? With 180,000 miles on them and one joint still good I think that’s a solid part to keep.

You're late to the party. Been there, done that. 315 ft lbs on the 16mm. That's what my Snap-On torque wrench said. :lol:

Re: Rear dif issue?

Sounds like front u-joints. The only way to inspect them for sure is basically to replace them. Not a bad job and not very expensive. You could remove the shafts and rotate them by hand and that might tell you if there’s a problem.

The new trucks have an M18 if I remember right, fine pitch. The high torque spec would make sense then.

Re: Aftermarket Shock Service Intervals

For performance shocks with nitrile seals that don’t get any nicks in the shock shaft and don’t see lots of mud and salt, you’re probably looking at closer to 100k miles before needing new seals and fluid and piston ring. I’ve got almost 50k on mine with no shaft damage, no leaking, no service or di...

Re: 2014+ Track Bar Bolt Torque Spec 280+ - 320+???

That spec sounds high. I’d aim for 215 as Don specs. If you put that bolt to 300+ (if you even own the tools to do it!!!) I think it’s going to yield before then. I don’t think the factory torques it to that level. Heck I’ve got about a 50% failure rate doing installs on rear trackbars where the fac...
