Re: Coil bucket/shock mounts mod

You can really break shit with properly valved 2.5's. Why would you need more? Now a cantilever setup, that's quite different as you're adding travel but write a blank check. I know I can break my truck with the current 2.5 stage 5's. I haven't attempted it yet but it's really tempting. Once you ri...

Holy shit, are those actual prices???? If so, that’s completely insane.
From what I've heard, yes. Im curious to ask Chris what he paid for his cantilever but I believe that is a Thuren kit and I imagine he got a deal on it lol

Re: Coil bucket/shock mounts mod

Carli has a cantilever system for the rear that uses 3.0’s, could possibly go even bigger. It’s likely pretty spendy though I never understand Carli's special suspension kits. They make zero sense. Why pay $30,000 for a front coilover kit if they're just using 3.0's? Screw that, put some 4.5's in t...

Re: Coil bucket/shock mounts mod

I've kicked around the idea of making a front setup for these trucks. It's going to be a weld-in kit but it's pretty straightforward. The rear should be done with a bed cage, you're not sticking any sizable shock through the frame in the stock location. And a $15,000 cantilever setup for the rear, p...

Re: Tire Feedback

I didn't think the Yokos were wider, I liked the Toyos because they were skinny. If someone made a reliable 37x10.5R17 I'd probably run it. Those Yokos do look nice in the tread and if they took cues from their other tires they would probably do better in the wet than the Toyos. Being in Portland I ...

Re: Logic Check -- Airbags

Air bumps and air bags used as a bump cannot be compared, they're in different universes. An air bag with 5psi isn't going to do much if you bottom hard. The higher the pressure the more it helps and the more it hurts your ride. Air bags with internal bumps will give you the best ride while performi...

Re: Carli Radius Arms

I've never heard someone running a 3" kit need new radius arms. Ever. I've only seen guys get new arms for the 5"+ kits. Was it Dan or Radio that told you you HAVE to spend tons more money with them or your truck will fall to pieces in the middle of the road?

Re: Can the steering be made right?

It sounds like you could use: - Maybe new tie rod assembly - probably new ball joints. Get EMF, Dynatrac or Carli. Moog is complete garbage to the extent it was even found they were re-using worn pins in new sets of joints. - Absolutely get it aligned if it is not or hasn't been in a long time. If y...

Re: Carli Radius Arms

Why do you want to run their radius arms? This is a case I would actually say that is a DOWN grade. Your stock arms will flex better than the Carli's will. There's literally zero upgrade, the stock arms are great. Get them powder coated and put some stickers on if you want bling. Or I'll sell you so...

Re: Thuren King 2.0 IFP shocks for sale

Carlis shock bodies being longer should change nothing unless Carli also gives you bump stop drops. I couldn't imagine the shocks having more travel than the coils. The coil is not the limiting factor. Also the power wagon trackbar is the same length as the Carli/Thuren bars at max safe adjustment s...

Re: Thuren King 2.0 IFP shocks for sale

The 2.5's will break in and get softer. The initial miles on them will feel quite sporty, they get smoother when the valve shims polish out.

The block heater is completely separate from all truck systems. It is a heater element that screws into a coolant jacket and has a 120v plug. That's it, no sensors, bone simple.

In my understanding the block heater will turn on at any temp and will turn off once a certain temp is reached. I don't remember what that temp is, I think it is around 140f. At -21 if you got the block heater option I would suggest using it. You don't need it nearly as much as diesels do when they'...

If you really want to modify the truck or have great suspension options, if you want something cheaper to play with that still has good internals, build quality, drivetrain, then the 10-13 trucks rock.

The stock arms on the 5-link wear out fairly quick and get lots of play. Mine are pretty terrible. The worst you feel it is when you are backing up, either uphill or downhill, and tap the brakes. You can feel the axle rock. It's best to replace the stock arms with something to prolong driveshaft lif...
