Re: OEM Wheel Load Rating?

The rear axle is rated at 6300lbs. Front is rated at 5700ish. Your wheels only need to be like 3200lb rated each (axle /2). Same with tires and why they are usually like 3195lbs each. Not saying stronger isn't better... this is just the minimums to be out of the realm of "oops, I did a stupid". Sent...

Re: confused trans

Program the truck for the tire size. Really helps. There is also a transmission relearn sequence that can be triggered but wait until you reprogram the tire size.

Rear sway bar? It's fine. But I would do the rear trackbar with a Thuren unit. That'll make a big impact.

Re: Chains up front?

If I’ve got chains on I’m probably not hauling ass at 30mph anywhere. In fact more likely I’m on a snowy trail. But Yeah I figured that leading edge of the fender well might be close, especially when turning with the suspension flexing a bit. Any concerns with brake lines on the inside, or are they...

Re: Towing 8K lb trailer, Air Bags w/Cradles or WDH?

I seem to be the only person capable of leveling their travel trailer without Airbags. Depends on the hitch weight and the WD hitch. I can almost do it. I think with a 7k wet trailer you can. After that it starts getting harder and might not be possible. I think a 7500 or 8k even maybe depending on...

Re: Towing 8K lb trailer, Air Bags w/Cradles or WDH?

The bigger question is bags with internal stops or not. I didn't get them, sometimes I regret it, other times not. I never really got a good understanding on how much they would limit articulation. Being in NV is as tough a choice as I had here in AZ. Sometimes I'm able to run pretty fast on dirt, ...

Re: Towing 8K lb trailer, Air Bags w/Cradles or WDH?

I run a trailer that is 7600lbs loaded, and I got the Airlifts with the internal bumpers. I don't need them to lift much when I use my Andersen wd hitch, but they level the truck and give me a pretty nice ride. I had too much air pressure at first, but now 17-18 psi does the trick when my camper is...

Re: Towing 8K lb trailer, Air Bags w/Cradles or WDH?

My dry is 7k and my loaded is 8500. I need airbags but BARELY! You might be okay if you have a good high end WD hitch with the highest bar type. Maybe. I mainly need the airbags when either not using the WD bars or hauling gravel or barkdust or anything but the trailer. You can always do Timbrens if...

Re: Towing 9K lb trailer, Air Bags w/Cradles or WDH?

You'll need airbags. Make sure your WD bars are the 1400lb variety. What you loose in travel is insignificant.

Re: 37s with overland extreme questions

I don't think you can go wrong with the Extreme Kit or anything Thuren. But if your truck is newer, you aren't trying to correct an issue caused by worn suspension, and you don't have a heavy load mounted above your bed, then I would spend my money a little differently. With a Roughly $2,500 budget...

Then go from there... rear springs and upgraded shocks, wheels, re...

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...
