Re: Perfect world PW

breather lines should be extended and mounted in such a way they are more readily accessible/Visible Lockers should work in 4 high and 2hi, even if you have to minimize speed to an extent, 4lo is too much sometimes. offroad/vehicle information data via uconnect..like SRT but not. snorkel as a factor...

took some cojones to coat some kings in gold plated hysteria
the king blue is ideal, but those components would look tits in gloss black.

Re: PWJouster's Build - 2018 Power Wagon "TrailWhale"

I don't get the whole ADAPT thing.. however if you want to have that kind of control...degrees of light are degrees of light and lumens dependent mainly on reflector and LED type. You want a flood/spot/superspot (for 100mph driving offroad :D ). The D2's provide massive flood and driving. Another s...

neither did i until i saw them in action just the other day. they are sick, and i plan on using the Amber color as a daytime running light. either i need a specific split of flood vs spot lights, or i can rely on the adapt for spot lighting and flooding. i probably wont go for it, but its a cool pro...

great product, but what happens when water is washing over the hood or rain at speed enters the system? is the vortex throwing it out? and why do i want to circulate the dust into the engine compartment.

great product for the desert guys

Re: Good gasket for diffs?

Another thing to consider, when you drain the diff fluid, you're not getting all of it, unless you open up the ends and drain the axle tubes as well. When your axle spins, it pushes fluid into the axle tubes. with the dana 44 in the jeeps, i would drain the dif, then jack up each side of the axle i...
