Re: Anyone have pics of Thuren front bumper on 14+

I went through all this. Best solution is a bolt on solution to the wings. BUT it wouldn't have much structural integrity. Just didn't seem worth it for the weight for something that probably couldn't take a strike anyway...

Re: Parksense Sensors

I removed the front sensors with the front bumper and never looked back. Never missed em for a minute and they are no longer annoying off road or in the rain. If you know how to drive a truck they are just worthless.

Re: Soon-to-be 2019 PW Owner — Question Re: 35s?

Took delivery yesterday! Already got to put the 4WD to work! 35s ordered, will be having them installed Saturday. Next I’ll be looking into White Knuckle sliders... Do they come out far/low enough to be beneficial as a step? They work as steps. My wife probably still thinks they actually ARE steps....

Re: Anyone have pics of Thuren front bumper on 14+

I've been eyeing up this bumper for my '13. A couple of questions: 1) What did you guys do for finish? Paint it yourself? Local powder coater? 2) Don't you wish Don would have an optional bull bar for some deer / brush protection? One thought I had was to have my own bar work fabricated and welded ...

Re: New to the registrey

Some more pics the day I put 37 x 13.5 on there on Raceline 17 x 9 x 20 mm offset. I did a little work to the rear of the front fender well and pinch weld. I cut off some of the pinch weld from behind the plastic fender well without butchering the plastic. I used a small Milwaukee Hacksaw to get in...

Re: Toyo Open Country R/T vs Open Country A/T II

Toyo RT was a fine tire but didn't fit my use case. They aren't snow rated and if you sipe them they die early. Siped they are good on ice. I wasn't impressed with deep snow. They did fine in Moab but balled up in Oregon clay. Wouldn't buy them again. If i was doing an AT I'd do the Kanati Trail Hog...

Ideally I would like to add a safe to the lower part of the center console (below the middle front seat) in my 2019 PW. Does anyone know if one exists? I see many safe product options but can’t figure out if any would work for the lower console area in the PW. Is the space the same as a 2013-2018? ...

Re: Overland 1.5 inch Spring w/King OEM 2.5 Shock

Swapping the front springs out would also motivate me to get the Synergy drag link to replace the fubar welded unit the truck came with. I was thinking about doing this, but FCA will not reimburse because it not a genuine MOPAR part and not the approved fix. I didn't make that up, but what the deal...

Re: 2018 vs 2019 First impressions

Ok y’all... So I’ve owned both an 18 and now a new 19. To be honest when I got the 18 I was disappointed on the first day I got it because I had traded up from a ‘16 Rebel and the lack of pep from extra weight and having a 6-speed trans was hard to swallow. The Rebel always felt like a race car and...

Re: Gears?

When you set the Procal you can't just set it for 37s. Basically download a GPS app to your phone, measure your tires, and then test drive and adjust until your mph from the gps is within +/- 1mph of the speedometer. Also, you might need the dealer to do the transmission relearn if it was never done...

What he said. I shoulda added that spacer from the start. I added it later with just the front springs and still have it installed with Kings and full Thuren.

Re: Upgrading to 35’s

I did the Autel Rental the first time. One if the recalls undid everything. Had to buy a Procal to reset it again. But what it didn't undo was the dealer reset of the BCM that needed to be done BUT AlphaOBD can maybe do that? Not sure, haven't checked.

Re: Upgrading to 35’s

Lots of people. It's fine. Guys went to Moab many times with a 35 stuffed up there and flexed the shit out of the truck. No issue.
