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. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk It is definitely adjustable. If you’ve still got the 2013 you’ll add pressure to account for road crown...

Re: 05 sway bar link recommendations

I had one link that looked like that when I bought the truck. It snapped under articulation. Check out that the link joints have enough travel.

Re: 05 sway bar link recommendations

They’re expensive for links, either $120 or $220 each when I saw them. Are your joints blown out or are they just old?

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!

Re: Torq's Build - 2017 RAM Power Wagon (Nickname Undecided)

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. Is that 250 ...

Re: 37 Tire in a 7' Garage?

I am on 37” Toyo MT’s and sit as tall as these trucks can without having issues (~3” over power wagon stock). I have a radio antenna base in the center of my cab that adds ~1.5”.

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.

Re: Aluminum Driveshaft failures?

When I cut my driveshaft on a ledge I didn’t even feel it. Truck stopped moving forward and I could hear the tube flinging. I checked a guy’s truck that had just rubbed a rock and the mark brushed off by hand, he barely got it. But most of the time if the rock is tall enough to intersect the shaft, ...

Re: Steering Box Slop - 2015

I got the same power steering noise from my EMF bushings. They are absolutely the cause. For the very very very minimal improvement I gained in steering tightness I wish that I had not installed them. Hearing the fluid flow that loud constantly is annoying sometimes. The liner they’re talking about ...

Re: EMF steering linkage?

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...

Re: Aluminum Driveshaft failures?

Factory shaft on my 11 was 4.5”x.080”. My steel shaft is 4”x.080” (if I remember right). Our trucks don’t make enough torque to trash that size shaft. 3500 Cummins pushing 1000ftlb is a different animal

I don’t know, the torque management on this truck is terrible. Thinking on it more I don’t have the ESC button and I don’t think the truck has it, likely just TM like you said. It isn’t a problem in the dirt

The likelihood of you dropping the entire rear weight of the truck perfectly on the shaft and blowing up the transfer...

Re: EMF steering linkage?

You went from the (potentially) best steering setup ever developed for these trucks, to what might be the worst. Following all of my testing I am a big fan of the Mopar linkage. Especially for the price, just run it and replace it when it wears out. It will not be cheaper to run a full heim steering...

Eek. Check that the thing has enough travel on your truck! Mine made it two weeks of street driving before it snapped the pin at the pitman. Got the ‘new and improved’ pin from DOR and it snapped a few weeks later. The kit did not have nearly enough travel to work and the flop/clunk and dead spot in...

Re: Aluminum Driveshaft failures?

Yes, they do get destroyed. My local driveline shop told me that the shaft length on my 2015 was too long for steel, there would be balancing/vibration problems at high speed. Given that I intend to regear to 5.13 at some point in the future (even higher driveshaft RPMs), and drive at highway speed...
