Re: Spare Fuel

Well for $30 I ordered a VP 5 gallon. I jumped my Ranger a lot of times with it in the bed and never broke one. I still am working through a rotopax solution. I like the siphon. Probably need a couple of those. VP cans are where it’s at. Cheap, aftermarket stuff for them, and they don’t scream ‘bre...

Re: 37's Not Balancing

Cross castor cannot be read on an alignment sheet. Solid axles don’t rotate (the goal of cross caster). You would need to look at the alignment cams on the radius arms to see cross caster. Discount Tire has their own mounting specs, for whatever reason they don’t care what the manufacturer requires....

What shocks do you have on? You usually need long shocks to get the shaft close to the crossmember
Bilstein 7100s and daystar shackles.

Re: Front Diff Blow Up

Can you get the service transcript from when they replaced the pinion bearing? Their lack of a good description of process might be in your favor. Or if they reference a spec’d method of swapping the seal but that method is wrong, there you go.

Re: Front Diff Blow Up

Supposedly the Carli arms "move the front axle 2" forward". Seems that would change some of the geometry in the diff as the attaching driveline distance is now changed - yes/no? On 03-13 trucks the max the front axle can move forward should be 5/8”. Thuren arms move the axle 1/2”. This will have no...

Re: PW stalls after refueling

My fuel pump gave me one weird warning of slight difficulty starting before driving down the street to get gas. It never started again after I got gas in it. That was very confusing to figure out, having died in front of the pump with a fresh tank of gas, led to several new suspects when it ended up...

2018 PW w/ 1.5 inch leveling kit. Shock question.

NEVER use shock extensions without bump stop drops if that’s what the kit is doing. I am with Low Sky but I think the Overland’s are actually a nice improvement over stock, they are definitely better and the valving and stroke they have can’t be beat for the price if you just need cheap shocks.

Re: 2020 Power Wagon - Spied

Poor holding power isn’t to due with ABS, more to do with the torque converter wanting to pull you along. I do a lot of my slow downhill driving in neutral.

Re: 2018 PW Front Bumper

I was thinking the same thing, the center section I made might actually go nicely on that. For general info, it should be understood that no push bar / bull bar added onto a bumper will ever be as stout as a bumper that is designed from the beginning to integrate that geometry. Welding onto a plate ...

Re: Boogie wagon take 2

I’m speaking with PSC, their preference is for the ram itself to be the stroke limiter in the system, and not the steering stops in the gearbox (which they prefer to leave set at max travel). This makes sense to me and makes it way easier to accurately set. I’m going to figure out the shim set for t...

Re: Bouncing Problemos

Correct, the point of the air bags is not so much spring rate but rather just a better spacing of the springs to prevent roll. The AirLift style with Daystar cradles on the axle is a great setup as it allows the axle to droop out from under the bag during articulation, and the AirLift bags with the ...

Re: Steering Box Slop - 2015

To confirm, which joint is it? There is a joint under the dash that regularly gets play in the connection between the shaft and the u-joint housing, but not in the u-joint itself. I am not aware of any upgrade shafts for your year, I think Mopar is the best option unless someone has a reference to a...

Re: Steering Box Slop - 2015

Make sure your trackbar bolts are TIGHT, both of them. Also check that your trackbar heim has no play and that the bushing play isn’t excessive. That clunk sounds like a loose trackbar bolt more than anything.

Re: Steering Box Slop - 2015

However much you can rotate the shaft at the box should be how much it moves at the steering wheel. Are you feeling a clunk when you turn the wheel that much? I have play in my steering wheel of about 5 degrees maybe. I think that is just how much there’s going to be, because I have a new PSC box an...

Re: Bouncing Problemos

I think regular 2500 springs are a poor compromise. They are stiffer but the geometry is still poor, a wider spring base will have a far greater effect than a small spring rate increase. Air bags are going to do a lot more, even if they are at a low pressure, just by providing a much wider base for ...

Those answers are on track but they don’t sound quite right with your issue. Did you talk with Chris at Thuren?
