Re: 37x12.5 on AEV Saltas – metal trimming or liner only (2018)?

Exactly what I'm hoping for! I went with the AEV wheel because they state it will allow fitment of 37s, and they didn't mention cutting being required... I remember reading it had to be a 37” BFG KO2 because they run small. Toyos run true to size or even bigger. This is probably where the discrepan...

Re: 37x12.5 on AEV Saltas – metal trimming or liner only (2018)?

I had a 35x12.5 Toyo RT underneath and it never touched the sway bar. Looked so good when i took it out for 37s that they bought back the tire at full sale price (was the same tire shop). I had it at 18 PSI and its a two person job. One to crank and one to guide.

Re: Recovery calculations, math made simple

https://www.warn.com/m15-12v-heavyweight-winch-47801 Warn literature says the M15000 will do 15k at 12V. I’m not a Warn expert, so I have no clue. I suppose an additional check we could make would be to compare the no-load line speed. The M12000 and M15000 seem to be the same motor geared different...

Yeah a little more positive offset would move you away from the pinch seem and in towards the radius arms and sway bar. I'm at +20 and I'm not that close. +18 i think was in the video and the saltas are +27 even. I dont think you be that close to the pinch weld.

Re: Available Effort

Available effort is how much the winch can pull (or is rated to pull). Winches only pull their rated capacity with the last wrap on the drum. Additional wraps reduce the available effort because the rope has more leverage against the drum. There are charts available that give the pull capacity for ...

Re: Rear Suspension

Do the rear trackbar. The stock one is what causes the rear to squat and wiggle around corners. If your going to run Kings then do his springs. They are matched well and a lot softer but you have airbags to compensate for towing. I'd add a Traxada one inch spacer on top of Thuren springs. Without it...

Re: Power Wagon Picture Thread

I'd look into the Traxada 1 inch spacer. Myself and BoldAdventure run them and i wouldn't do it again without it. front or rear? I have Thuren coils front and rear, and will typically cruise without much load. pictures are deceiving as the truck sits very level. Rear for sure. Sorry, i missed a wor...

Re: Why the lack of subforums?

Put brakes, airbags, and onboard air into towing and hauling

Add wheels and tires together with suspension and lifts.

Add exhaust into drivetrain and engine.

Re: Power Wagon Picture Thread

You have a bunch of weight in the back of that? Looks like it could use a 1/2” or 1” spacer our back to level it off a little better. And it needs some 37’s now! i have two spares! stock spare under the bed and a fullsize spare with Method wheel in the bed. aftermarket full size will stay bolted do...

Re: Overkill? (Snatch Block)

Yeah, that’s wrong. Both blocks in that triple line pull see 18k lbs. Could be wrong. I didn't do the math and frankly have forgotten how since my physics and engineering class days, lol. Could be definitely wrong. If you neglect drag at the blocks, the winch line carries the same tension throughou...

Re: Overkill? (Snatch Block)

That's one heavy jeep. It's not the weight of the jeep. Its the pull power of the winch. If you have a 4000lb jeep its stuck factor varies and increases the force needed to pull it. Gravity, angles, hills, terrain, what your actually stuck on or in (mud, sand, snow, etc.). What won't change is how ...

Re: Overkill? (Snatch Block)

I'm not sure I follow your logic on this. Maybe a diagram would make it a little clearer. This is with jeep weights but you can see all the math. So where it says 9k change it to 12k and then multiply out. That 18k becomes 24k and the 27k becomes 36k. Screenshot_20180209-165618.jpg Yeah, that’s wro...

Re: Overkill? (Snatch Block)

Couple thoughts. Weight your truck. I really really doubt your at 3.5 tons. I'm at 8530 with standard gear. The winch is either 12k or 15k depending on who you believe. With any kinda stuck factor your snatch block should at least double rate what your winch can pull because of how forces get multip...
