Re: New Tools Thread

I’ve got a piston compressor that’s done fine for most of my uses. I’m looking for a higher output compressor for a new piece of equipment coming in for the business :) rigging company was over this afternoon planning the move. I won’t know my air needs until the new machine is running. It will eith...

My cheap Rigid drill lasted me surprisingly long, in a hard life. The bearings are full of chips now and the batteries are toast but that’s 6 years of daily use. My Makita 1/4” impact is outstanding and I use it almost daily. The Makita 1/2” still bought with it is absolute garbage - speed control i...

I have Zak’s previous timbrens. They were excellent when I had a few thousand pounds in the bed. I’ve only used them one time. They rebound a lot if the shocks aren’t dialed in!!

Re: Spare Fuel

I use either a Jerry can or a couple VP fuel cans. Usually the VP cans. I keep them strapped down and have never had a problem. Rotopax are expensive for the small amount of fuel they hold, in my opinion.

Re: Weight Distribution Hitch Offroad

Running a WD hitch on rough roads is a fast way to rip the WD brackets off or snap a load bar! You’re putting a ton of force into that system whenever the truck and trailer are shoved into being not level to the same plane.

Re: Rusty's Build - 2008 POWER WAGON RC

I have never understood the thought of leaving a tube open to ‘get rid of the moisture inside’. The moisture in the hot air as you’re welding a piece of metal is almost zero. Anything in there is going to oxidize with the surface and then be gone. It’s not going to rust itself from the inside out. O...

Re: Locker Bypass

The Anti-Rock is a different spring rate as stock. It’s the same exact principal. The stock swaybar works through Torsion as well, like all swaybars. I just hooked my swaybar up yesterday after two years of having he links removed. I’ll take some rebound out of the bypasses and see how it feels. I d...

Re: Rear Diff Bearings Already

You could have them show you the rear end, if it’s ring gear wear it will be very visible. Good bearings tend to either last a VERY long time, or die a crib death. Imperfections in material, assembly, install, damage before/during install can all manifest that way. You could also get 500,000 miles o...

Re: Largest tire practically possible on a stock '12

Without any real changes, you can run 35’s with maybe some trimming of the plastic liner. You’d be best to swap wheels to a slightly wider offset if you want to go 37’s.

I love these problems. The problem isn’t the problem, it’s the lack of a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist.

Skip Borgeson and Redhead and buy a PSC. I can get you a PSC box that is brand new and has bigger bearings, bigger apply piston, the current trucks’ case (much bigger than 3rd gen), with the monster output sector shaft to run 08+ steering, with the same input shaft your truck has so you don’t have t...

Re: "Smart" Sway Bar, discontinued part. Help please!

There’s several things that could be wrong instead of the module. I’ve had that happen several times I believe from moisture in the connector and from heat while towing.

Pit Slave might have spare SmartBar stuff.

Re: Thuren driver side e brake drop bracket

Instead of holding the cable it allows it to hang free and protects it from the tire. As long as that cable is away from the tire side of the bracket you should be good! The cable is stiff enough to be self supporting.

No indicator of failure. I think 187,000 miles of hard use broke a valve spring, or the top of the valve snapped off.

I’m really surprised the valve seat is completely untouched.

I don’t know the lengths off hand. 16.5” sounds familiar as a starting point but you’ll need to measure with the springs and bump stops removed and the axle sitting metal to metal. Shock length is ALWAYS driven by the fully compressed dimension and whatever lift height you’re at has no bearing on sh...

I had posted that info above just after one of yours.

Cam lobe and lifter seem fine. Pushrod seat in the lifter looks fine. Bearing feels the same as the other 7 on that side with some hand load.
