Re: Locker Issues....

Are you using them in dirt or asphalt? I’ve had it happen a few times the lockers don’t want to engage unless I get a moment of wheel spin in the dirt.

Also worth asking if you’ve taken any big hits on your front end or if you see odd tire wear? A bent axle is very possible and can be a factor.

Re: 14 power wagon lifter failure

I spoke with Sheridan a while back about building the 5.7 and cam swaps. I wanted low/mid torque and the owner said that unless you want high HP at mid/high RPM to stick with the stock cam, as he hasn’t seen anyone make something better than the stock cam for usual ‘truck use’. Good options for high...

Re: 2018 Power Wagon Brake Issues

If your foot is going to the floor, you almost for sure have air in your lines. Buy a Mity-Vac (even harbor freight sells them, made in USA if I remember right) and suck your brake lines. Having soft brakes is one thing, that is downright dangerous. I can still lock my brakes with 37’s. If the brake...

New Rear Bumper?

The cheap Chinese lights have a lot going for them. Same output, maybe an application of silicone to weatherproof them. I run them and have no issues. Betting the drivers, regardless of manufacturer are all made in the same plant. No. Chinese garbage is light years behind modern quality lighting. G...

Referring to your engine cooling fan? Engine fan has almost no flow beyond the ram air flow once you get above 35-40mph. You could remove the fan and run highway speeds with no notable change.

Wheels?

I know a few people that have used hand routers to open up H2 wheels with no problem. Are they not lug centric? I do not understand why the theory that Power Wagon wheels are just better is still floating around. I need to find the pictures. Except for the few years of Alcoa forged wheels, they are ...

Re: Wheels?

I run the Ultra 234’s. They came with the truck, nothing special, but for a cheap wheel they have been super tough, definitely due to how meaty the spokes are. My truck has seen a lot of desert at speed and crawling. I’ve only damaged one when I smacked a rock at 40, poked through the sidewalk and s...

I would not expect it to be speed dependent but the 3rd gens have their blend doors break and it’s possible outside air is blowing over your heater core. No clue why throttle would have anything to do with AC response. 17F is freakishly cold for auto AC, I didn’t think you could get it to go below f...

I am imminently working on a solution to run the Thuren swaybar links with rear diff covers. If things work right I’ll have a cheap solution. Prototypes are already in my hands. You can run without the rear swaybar but really the tears of these trucks ought to have one on, with how onboard the coil ...

Re: Any Pics of Hutchinson Wheels?

The 2 piece seem easier to do tire repair in the field. Are they? I would not be disassembling a wheel in the dirt. Tire repair kits can fix the tire from the outside. Only the big patches like you’d get a tire shop to install require removing the tire. If you get a flat from more than an easily re...

Re: New owner in Colorado.

Unluckily for your wallet, the stock tire auto-deflate function seems to kick in far sooner than the tread seems to wear out. Beware sharp rocks, branches, gravel roads, road base driveways, nails, legos or kinder surprise toys.

Re: Any Pics of Hutchinson Wheels?

There’s two types of double-beadlock. A two-piece wheel style (this is what Hutchinson’s are) with an internal clamp ring. And standard single-piece beadlock wheels with an internal clamp ring (the DIY double beadlocks I’ve seen are like this). Two-piece wheels are heavier, easier to assemble, and c...

Any Pics of Hutchinson Wheels?

All that said, if you want a double beadlock, both Hutchinson and TR make them, I’m not sure who else. Hutchinson makes the split-center style. TR makes both split-center and they make an insert that goes with their standard ring-style. Hutchinson is MUCH cheaper for a double beadlock!

Affordable for middle-quality beadlocks. Very popular. Low pressure cast. Haven’t heard of issues with them and seem to not have the problems of the Methods (Methods have a reputation for clamp rings ripping off).
