Do the skid plate first, after you’re pissed off with the two hard to reach nuts you’ll be prepared for the joys of installing sliders :)

Re: Boogie wagon take 2

I wonder if adjusting the stops is really a big deal. I 100% know when I’ve hit my steering stops and the ram gets no flow of the steering box isn’t turning. I suppose you could overload it but it’s pretty easy in my truck to tell when you’re there and not push any more

Re: Boogie wagon take 2

Tim does the smaller box have a smaller piston? Also are you using a stock box with tapped holes, or does the box have a full valve body? One of the reasons I went with PSC for my kits is that they have a full valve body for the hydro assist that goes a long way to flowing better. And their bearings...

Re: ZR2 diesel test drive & test tow

Yeah man I totally get wanting something that just WORKS. I ran the math once, I made sure I never wrote down how much money I have in repairs in the ‘11. I do know I’m over $5000 into the front axle now [emoji23]

I hope the Chevy is reliable, isn’t it nuts how good modern diesels are???

Mounting the cradle to the bottom of the bag does not make sense. It would do nothing. It would be the same as running no cradle.

Re: Airlifter 5000 Ultimate airbags w/ Daystar cradles '14+

Oh gotcha, that’s cool. We had a Coleman stove, 5 gallon water bladder and bottled water, and a laptop to watch movies on in our camper. That did just fine and we really enjoyed the lower weight. I think having less weight and fewer things to go wrong in the camper is likely a rewarding move.

Re: Boogie wagon take 2

Can the stock pump handle being over-driven? It's only off idle with fast inputs. Like any pump, yes. Lifespan goes down and fluid foaming goes up. The Amsoil fluid is very good for not foaming. The constraint would be how much of a change does the pump see at max engine RPM. If some guys are holdi...

Re: Airlifter 5000 Ultimate airbags w/ Daystar cradles '14+

The weight ratings as I understand do not include anything whatsoever in the camper. Add a full water tank, any grey water, any camping gear, mountain bikes, lots and pans, food, it is EASY to hit 1500. I have a friend that had a Grandby, it weighed 2300lbs with water. Yours is smaller of course, ju...

Re: Airlifter 5000 Ultimate airbags w/ Daystar cradles '14+

Those 4WheelCampers are HEAVY HEAVY. Their posted weight is garbage. You’re likely looking at minimum 1500lbs once you add water and some gear. The true full-size campers easily tip 1800+lbs. This was a huge reason we built ours from scratch. All the campers on the market are very heavy. You WILL sa...

I still have yet to figure out why some trackbar bushings wear out so fast.

Re: KM3

In my mind a light 37 would be a Yokohama MT, Toyo RT Mid weight would be the Toyo MT 12.5-wide and most other 37’s Heavy weight would be the Toyo MT 13.5-wide (actually 14.4 if I remember right) and other similar wide tires. Rolling resistance, tread compound, weight, there’s lots of variables. The...

I don’t even know why I bothered with 35’s. I love the 37’s more all the time. For purely off-road the 37 totally makes sense. As my DD I’d like to squeeze every MPG I can out of my PW, while still being decent when we do go off-road. Do you recall the difference between 35s and 37s in day to day M...

The current Carli bar has their new ‘CUB’ Captured Uniball Bearing. It’s captured in a poly housing.

I still have the bar in your first pic :) Carli didn’t take kindly to me telling them I measured the housing at .035” out of round haha
