Re: 2012 New to Me!

The Monstaliner is rubbery when you put it on, and once it has cured it feels hard to the touch. It has texture from the rollers they have you use, but it is not gritty or really rough. It works great on my truck. It doesn't make the sliders super grippy, but it does add some texture. I will have to...

Re: 2012 New to Me!

IMG_3174.jpeg Other than having some dust and rain spots on it. I was thrilled! Now all my gravel rash is gone and the dent is harder to see. All total it cost me about $250 for all the mods in total. We are headed to Moab to get out of town in 2 weeks, so now the truck looks like a completely diff...

Re: 2012 New to Me!

After the prep work and cleaning. I had the wife help me with rolling on the Monstaliner. It was actually a lot of fun. I was unsure what it might look like, but again, I was very surprised. I did the sliders as well and put them back on. Now my truck has a new black textured look. IMG_3173.jpeg

Re: 2012 New to Me!

Now I had one project left. The side of my truck slid into a log during hunting season. It dented the bed just in front of the driver, rear wheel. There were some small dents in the corner of the cab and scratches too. I did some amateur body work with a body work hammer kit, and I got most of the s...

Re: 2012 New to Me!

Next, I started working on the bumper. I sanded it down and pulled it all apart. Then primer and Rustoleum bumper paint in the front yard. Since I was in the mood, I did some Rustoleum version of Plastidip for the rear emblem. I had never used this before, but I figured what the heck. My emblem chro...

Re: 2012 New to Me!

It has been a while since I updated my build sheet, so I figured I would add some of my recent changes. I kept losing the center hubs on my wheels, so I took them off. The aluminum wheels were a bit scratched, and I wanted to switch to black wheels after I switched my front bumper. So....I decided t...

Re: Swaybar moved to passenger side?

Thanks guys. I ordered the spacer plate and I will see what happens. I don't have any extra lift on mine, but I added a Thuren track bar. I set it the same as the factory one. I did add 315's so do you think the added height would cause that change?

Re: Swaybar moved to passenger side?

Here is the picture from the passenger side from below. You can see the bar sticks out a great deal more than the driver side.

Swaybar moved to passenger side?

I wanted to see if anyone had any ideas on why my swaybar moved passenger side so far? I have a 2012, and I have a DOR steering brace which is mounted under the swaybar bushing clamp. I noticed the swaybar off centered to the passenger side, and it was contacting the steering brace just a bit. I tho...

Re: New Tires Yokohama X-AT 35's

How have you guys been liking the X-AT's? They look like a great solution to an all around tire for these trucks and I like the look. I was wondering how they were performing and if you had done any significant winter driving in them yet. They look like they would do pretty well in snow and ice even...

Re: New to Board - I'm a steel fabricator

It took them a few days to get back to me as their main business is other welding projects in that part of CO. Once they got in touch, I set up a time with the owner and drove out to have them install the bumper. They did a really nice job, and I am very pleased with my bumper. I did a write up on m...

Re: Diff Protection AAM 10.5/9.25

I have a 2012 with front and rear Purple Cranium guards. I also have a Thuren track bar, and there are no issues with fit. The rear guard really does not look like it will do much for peeling the diff when it hits. It really looks to help out with collisions with rocks etc. I don't really know of an...

Re: What did you do to your PW this week?

I finally fixed my driver headlight that was starting to look like an aquarium with all the condensation collecting inside. I finally broke down and took it out, found a leak on the top of the light housing and sealed it generously with silicone. Now the condensation is gone! Not sexy but it really ...

Re: 2012 New to Me!

They started by removing the bumper and taking the bolts out of the winch cradle. There are 2, shim plates that go inside between the frame and winch cradles. Once they were in, they lined up the holes and traced the outline for the bumper onto the front fender liners. They removed the bumper and tr...

Re: Towing 8K lb trailer, Air Bags w/Cradles or WDH?

I run a trailer that is 7600lbs loaded, and I got the Airlifts with the internal bumpers. I don't need them to lift much when I use my Andersen wd hitch, but they level the truck and give me a pretty nice ride. I had too much air pressure at first, but now 17-18 psi does the trick when my camper is ...

Re: Kinzer bumper- now from HCC off-road

I am headed out to Gypsum this Friday to pick up my new bumper from HCC, and I hope to have some photos to share soon afterwards. I always liked the look of this bumper on some of the trucks on the forum, so I was excited to hear they were available again. Can't wait for Friday!
