Re: OEM Wheel Load Rating?

You might try this too. I can't remember what the powerwagon sales code is. But all the wheels listed that it could be are 3000 to 3500 pound capacity. So I think the lower one you have would be fine. But don't ignore the offset.

Re: confused trans

You can program tire size with either an AEV ProCal or the AlfaOBD app on an android device. Or an hour of labor at the dealer. But they can’t reprogram the TPMS. However TPMS reprogram is easy, tire size adjustment is a bit more complex. If you have no speedometer and ABS alarms going off and all ...

They got hit in 2018 by the BLM (at the last minute) over not being properly registered so, which requires you have an insurance policy, etc. A many thousand dollar last minute charge that wasn't budgeted. Which is why it was officially cancelled in 2018, it was just a bunch of people driving around...

Other than the duratrash, I’ve had none of those. But i probably have not driven 20% of what ylu have. My inherent cheapness has me taking the 30mpg car over the 10mpg truck most of the time when its a choice.

Re: 37s with overland extreme questions

Do it man...37 x 13.5. I just switched from 35 x 12.5. The 35s feel big at first and then quickly they start feeling small on these wagons. 17" x 9" x +18mm or +20mm offset will be great. As far as fender trimming, check out my post on here for trimming on a 4th gen without butchering the inner fen...

Re: Gears?

Did you reprogram for tire size, or have the dealer do it? If not you should try that first. That will adjust some things in terms of shift points and such that might greatly improve your experience. And it’s like an hour of non-warranty service at the dealer. You can also buy alfaobd, the Bluetooth...
