Re: Removal of rear sway bar?

Someone needs to come up with a manual QD system.

Re: Removal of rear sway bar?

Either way, I haven't heard it. But I'm also taller than most in the rear with an additonal 1 inch spacer.

Re: Removal of rear sway bar?

You must be making a lot more contact than I am... I can't tell if I'm hitting or not. But it's really really close and I'm sure it would if I drooped it out.

DamagedWagon, I'll take a set of your first production run spacers. :)

Re: Removal of rear sway bar?

You can just flip the rear sway bar. I'm going to remove mine in Moab and when I put it back on I'll flip it.

Re: Towing Capacity

That should work well. You'll be near the top of what the PW can do for distance and it'll whine some up hills. I chased this and that for a long time to get it fully 100% stable. Airlift airbags and daystar cradles will serve you well. Make sure you dial in the WD hitch. Have them give you two sway...

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

At +18 your right ontop of the pinch seem. At +20 i didn't have to trim but i get some very very very slight rubbing (like radio off to hear it) at hard lock. I think it's still the sway bar. AEVs are +27 so you'll probably get some light rubbing in the same places. Best for no rub chance is probabl...

Re: Towing Capacity

I think around 7k dry weight is about as big as I'd go. My trailer is 7k dry and 8500lb loaded and 9k GVWR. That puts me under all numbers except payload. So tires, axles, tow rating, and GCWR are all just under. I added airbags and other stuff to account for payload. Honestly driving around town I'...

One is pristine and 4 are slightly used with some dings. They make great spares as the OEM spare is rather narrow if you've gone up in tire size.

Make me a decent offer. I'm not emotionally attached to them...

Re: Shock suggestion for towing/daily driver

Also, a lot of the Power Wagon stuff is the same as the 2500 stuff. So it's only listed under the 2500 area. That's where the King 3.0s and 2.5s are. But Don does a custom interview with everyone anyway before you order to fine tune the shocks for your specific use-cases. Sent from my SM-G955U using...

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...

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

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...

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

Add wheels and tires together with suspension and lifts.
