Re: (New) Toyo A/T III

I love Toyo but I need to see these be a big improvement over the AT II before I would consider them over my STT Max’s. The AT II is about the most disappointing tire Toyo makes. have you ventured to the toyo RT yet? they fulfilled everything i was worried about with the ATs, yet kept me far enough...

Looks like at this point (March 2020) they only offer two 17" tires that might suit our trucks: our stock size and 35x12.50

Re: Air Lift Bags and Uptravel

Yea, I tried it without the spacer but the bag then required more pressure for the lift/support I wanted to achieve. I may remove it after I install the Thuren shackles and king shocks. (this is to support ~1600lb slide in Hallmark Camper) My thought was to get the level with the lowest psi for a s...

Here are a couple pictures with measurements I got when checking for clearance on my flatbed build.

Re: Anybody build a driveline protection solution that works?

the lower gawr in the front is because the soft springs. i suspect the rating of the axle itself is 5000 or possibly 5500. it could use a 7000 lb axle but would still be limited to less than 5000 because the springs PW axles are actually the same or higher rated than non-PW axles. Front is 5700 and...

Re: Air Lift Bags and Uptravel

I don’t remember the number, I believe it was about an inch less travel. You usually will have even less than that due to the rapid spring rate increase of bags as you compress them unless you have them fully collapsed at ride height. This is true. I run my bags at 0 psi most of the time, as they a...

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.

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.

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.
