Re: If you own a 2015 PW and it's hesitating/surging...

But you can go to another dealer and/or complain to FCA. If those are exhausted, yes you'd have to go the legal route. Rarely happens, usually its the on call guy at the desk and service manager will reverse it or service manager reverses course when FCA calls. Bullshit, I'm going through it right ...

Re: If you own a 2015 PW and it's hesitating/surging...

Will do. The warranty saved me money on the valvetrain issues but the hassle is only worth it if something expensive needs replaced/fixed as was the case for me. Agreed. I have gone back and forth with myself trying to determine if I should keep the lifetime warranty or not. Between worrying about ...

Re: Thuren Rear Sway Bar Link Clearance Issue W/ Diff Guard

The other two Chris & David with the links dragged theirs too. Becuase of the increased length they are significantly lower. It's not a problem on the street which is probably all most people ever do. And not a problem if you boogie. But if you crawl, that difference equals impact. I don't think mi...

I honestly think the 1 inch spacer is a must anyway. I was nose high without it and there doesn't seem to be a downside.

Re: 2.5s versus 3" Kings

I would never go back to 2.5’s but I use my truck all the time for play and work. 3.0’s ride smoother than comparably valved 2.5’s while also having more bottom out resistance, like Colibri said. If you’re asking if you need 3.0’s, you don’t even need 2.5’s. But ‘need’ is a terrible word and antith...

Re: 2.5s versus 3" Kings

Not sure what to tell you. Are King 3.0s better? Yes, do you need them? Idk, hard call. I was gonna go 2.5s but got a good deal on 3.0s. But if i wouldn't of got that i woulda done 2.5s and been perfectly happy.

Re: Airlifter 5000 Ultimate airbags w/ Daystar cradles '14+

SAM_0787 (2).JPG I run boss air bags with day star craddles. No air empty and 15 to 20 # towing. Great set up with no rattle so far. The one thing i really like about the Airlifts is they dont have extra hardware at the top. It's a flat plate so you don't loose as much up travel. The boss and the f...

Re: Rear Shock Question

With the Thuren front spring only. It's the correct length stock, as is the front track bar. You don't need the entire kit. Thuren rear springs and swar bar links, and Kings should be going on tomorrow or Tuesday. This is true. I ran Thuren springs and stock Bilsteins for some time..maybe 5k miles....

Just as a follow up. I took my truck through Moab with this install and my articulation was just fine with 0 PSI. I'm not even sure i ever hit the internal jounce or if I did it was muuuch softer and not jarring at all. I do have boogie bump stops in front. FB_IMG_1526095416270.jpg FB_IMG_1526095057...

Re: Thuren 3.0 KING on 2018 Powerwagon!

Okay, i bought 3m black vynal s12 at Don's recommendation to wrap just the rears. It'll make em match and protect the steel body of the shock. It was 14 bucks so if it doesn't work out it's not the end of the world, lol.

Re: Thuren 3.0 KING on 2018 Powerwagon!

Thanks guys. I got some for the rears as I didn't have them coated. I'm guessing cerakote is fine on the fronts as its kinda the point of it besides the color.

Did you have the shock bodies clear wrapped? If not, it’s probably a good idea with the salt air you have down there.
Can you explain the clearwrap and with what? My King 3.0s are in the mail so I'm thinking about what needs to be done for them.
