Re: Sliders

Check that you don’t have anything that can now bump into the frame or cab as things move. The cab moves a lot relative to the frame. Could also be a bracket that’s bent out of shape and coming back into contact with the sheet metal. If you modify the sliders, they either need to attach to cab or fr...

Re: Thuren front leveling kit

FYI on the 03-13 trucks, if you’re in stock springs, usually the springs have sagged out so much that those lift numbers are usually quite off. On my truck I used the 1.5” lift springs and it gave me 4” of lift.

Considering a 2018 Power Wagon, help

Is there a recommended yracbar to go with? Thuren rear track bar is the only one worth doing. Don put some real thought into it and came up with something that significantly improves how the truck drives. This is an upgrade worth doing all by itself, regardless of how you use the truck.

Re: Headers

Nice, I’ve considered them but JBA said they don’t fit. The only ones I found that for sure were good to go are the ARH set but for $2k with cats plus required tune that’s a big chunk of coin.

My 06 CTD has that same problem. Every time I do a rough off road ride I have to recenter the steering wheel. I figgured it was the threads jumping but happens so infrequently that I just recenter when needed. I don't want to hve to take the front end apart to fix it! But maybe I should, would hate...

Re: 2014+ FRONT DIFFERENTIAL COVER HELP

The 2014 trucks trackbar gets pretty close to the diff. We saw the AEV cover would contact the trackbar on PW’s in Moab and needed some grinder love. So with that being a replacement cover, that shows how close they sit.

Re: Suspension setup to fit 37x12.5s on stock wheels with zero rubbing, esp. on genie lamps?!!

If your stuck on the factory wheels and worried about the minor rubbage, you can always look into wheel spacers. A 1.5" spacer with the stock wheels would equal out pretty close to a +18 offset. If I was going to commit suicide I would find a more interesting way to do it than wheel spacers. Like w...

Nice!! I really dig the Carli units. I haven’t played with the Ruff Stuffs but they look solid! I don’t think Gale Banks will be crawling under your truck any time soon to disrupt your oil flow.

You can put 37x12.5’s on a stock power wagon right off the lot with no changes and pretty much get away with it. You will have a slightly larger turning radius and usually need to trim the fender liner some. +18mm is the rough number to aim for with new wheels but that is absolutely not a hard numbe...

The 13’s still had the SLT package that my ‘11 has. You get into all the accessories without getting into the chrome and leather of the Laramie. If you want to go full hoon, the 10-13 trucks are the way to go. The new trucks will never be able to do what the older trucks could with suspension. These...

Rugged looking goes out the window when you’re off camber. If you never tilt the truck you just pay for the tall lifts every mile you drive on the street with bad steering geometry. I’d almost short-course my truck with a low ride height but tons of droop if I could. I wouldn’t go above the 30 lift ...

Re: Viair vs ARB

I have a York compressor here, it’s 10 or 12 CFM. I would love to get this on the truck but mounting anything to these trucks in the serpentine arrangement is a bitch. There’s almost nowhere to bolt anything on to.

Re: Viair vs ARB

Tanks help to cool the air and ditch moisture if you are also using the air for something besides filling tires. For just doing tires I think there is almost no benefit to a tank.

I would not want to run both. Figure out a quick removal system for your air bags so you can swap bags or boogies. Hydro bumps are not required (and I even recommend against them) unless you want to go full hoon. Most trucks run out of horsepower, traction, available power to ground, driver, and oth...
