Re: Suspension Recommendations for FWC Hawk Camper

Great example of how not to do it. Thanks for sharing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Ugh, I follow that guy on IG and he had asked about the suspension. Glad to see he took my advice and threw it out the window. I'm really getting tired of offering advice for it to be ignored. Zak is right. Th...

Re: New Rear Bumper?

Re: Thuren front leveling kit

And “level” is a bit subjective. When these Rams are “level”, by measurement, they tend to look a bit low out back. I have 1.5” spacers under mine, which leaves the back 3/4” or so higher still. I personally would not want the rake any less. When I get the Thuren overland kit, I plan on adding a sp...

Re: Thuren from leveling kit

Put any significant weight in the back and the truck is going to sit nose high like a SoCal bro dozer. Significant weight like 300lbs or 800lbs? I rarely load more than a few hundred lbs in the bed or tow more than 3k-4k pounds. Thinking level will be good for me. If you do the 1.5 springs and find...

Re: Considering a 2018 Power Wagon, help

Main use is mostly a daily driver. Pull a small utility trailer with my 4wheeler and jetski. Some trail stuff. Not concerned with mpg as I get around 9 now. Man for what you are doing the Power Wagon shines. A lot of folks upgrade the rear trackbar (Thuren Fab) but with just a small trailer I think...

Re: Suspension setup to fit 37x12.5s on stock wheels with zero rubbing, esp. on genie lamps?!!

Thanks. Are 13.5 tires just a preference for you or is it better because they’re that much wider? I always liked a skinnier tire that stayed in line with the truck as much as possible. Skinnier is better for cutting through snow too, maybe the same for mud? I apologize if I’m beating this topic to ...

If this question is better posed somewhere else please let me know but I’m wondering what my best option is to use the stock wheels with 37 inch tires. I am waiting for a 19 PW to arrive in the mail in a couple months but I believe most of the suspension is very similar to a 17-18. This truck will ...

Re: New Rear Bumper?

The problems with geometry of a swingout on our trucks comes from the tire. If you have a 35” or smaller you don’t need to relocate the spare tire. So a bumper tire carrier is only for 37-40” tires. If you set a tire of that size on your bumper, you can see that in order to not have the tire itself...

I'm sure we are getting the 426 in 2022. It'll probably be the 6.4L upgrade for a bigger size.
