Re: Painted Stock Wheels (2017+)

I'm sure you could trade someone for the 2016 wheels. They are basically the same just silver. I'd even trade you if it made sense. I have a set of 5 in my garage.

Re: New to me 2016

I just purchased a 2016 and am so happy I found this site. I look forward to modifying and enjoying the truck. Are there any must do modifications that you would do to a 2016? https://images.autotrader.com/borderscaler/800/600/2d363e/images/2020/7/19/557/367/43677403958.557367727.IM1.04.480x640_A.1...

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...

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.
