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: Cooper or Maxxis?

But your saying the 37x13.50R17E had a softer sidewall than the 37x12.50R17D? That literally blows my mind... Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk Not exactly. It was a result of a few things working together. The sidewall itself is not "softer." The sidewall on the x13.5 is very durable/thick. The...

Re: Cooper or Maxxis?

I'm on my 3rd set of 37" Cooper STT Pros. Nothing but good things to say overall, but there is some variation based on size. I've run these tires year round and found them to perform well overall. First set was 37X13.50R17LT . Required little weight to balance. Very tough/heavy tire. 85 PSI max E r...

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.

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.

Re: Airbags

What he said. The wiggle is the rear trackbar and its shitty angle. Fix that with Thuren Rear trackbar. The squat is Airlift 5000 Ultimates with Daystar cradles.

I'm fairly sure your math is off. I won't go in a parking garage under 7'3". I think I can maybe clear a 7'2" or 7'1" MAYBE... but not a 7.

Shock mounts are weak BUT if all the geometry is correct should never break because they should never see downward force. The shock should stop before that.

Absolutely. I’m wondering if the boogies are allowing too much compression. Don’t the kings have some some kind of internal bumpstop? It will be interesting to hear what Don says.

The dual setup is 380. But yes, the more I think about it I think one large one would be better.
