Re: Take a ride to my hunting camp in the Powerwagon

i finally got stuck in the muck, and i sat for 30 mins...think i have a compromised swaybar disco, luckily, all my nannies are bypassed so everything still works. but i do have a service 4wd light on..

Re: Power Wagon Short Bus

this is a great opportunity for us to crowd source a build! Then it can be the mobile bathroom and bar for PWIM!

$20 or 50 from every member should get it done

Re: ARH Long Tube Headers- Dipstick Tube and Tranny Cable

either have a friend or do it yourself.

take some cardboard and tape and fabricate your own bracket. then have someone weld or bend one up. Sounds like the bracket would have it sitting where it is now but with more support?

Re: Sway and oscillation

i would be really surprised... im typically 40 front 32 rear cold.

so 4 large passengers and i actually need to crank that over 50 psi lol

while i dont doubt it has an effect, i didnt think this was the real issue...

i really need to get on that chalk test.

Re: Sway and oscillation

You know, my 18 with 36k miles has alot of sway...but i find it self induced, or needing to be induced by other roadwork/steering wheel response... I have posted this prior and best part is, you can have somewhat an idea that it may not be springs or shocks. or maybe even track bars... i have every ...

Re: Trackbar or other popping sound

Have someone start the truck and wiggle the steering wheel back and forth. While you are looking at all the suspension points. Pay attention to the trackbar mounting points. Also check your u-joints and ball joints. i have tried this, but this popping sound, like others, started after the thuren li...

this is what i was going to try next. i also have a rear end tactile contact noise over large bumps through the compression motion of the shock.

Re: Trackbar or other popping sound

Have you looked at you upper intermediate steering shaft coupler? The rubber in the isolator fails and you will get slop and a click in the wheel that can also be felt in the brake/throttle as they are all part of the same sub-assembly attached to the firewall. EMF has a press in bushing fix that I...

Trackbar or other popping sound

Still think it’s your trackbar? Why I can’t locate the continued popping/thrusting sounds emanating from the undercarriage is beyond me. It comes, it’s goes. It has to be the trackbar and axle shifting, by why can I not discern any abnormal wear or movement in this bolt and thuren bar setup. Has any...

Re: King 2.5 Shock Body / Frame Contact

obviously many of us can look. GOOD FIND

My driver side has surface rub...clearly made contact as well, missing some blue but overall did not flatten my cap like your frame rail did.

should be easy to clear the opening somewhat, but that there looks like something may be out of alignment.

Re: Poll: Ram TRX vs Supercharged PW w/thuren king 37s

I wonder how much of a difference a supercharger would make on these 8klb pigs? Especially with heavy 37" tires. I feel like we would need at least 150+hp and 150+tq to make a noticeable difference. Does anyone want to volunteer as tribute for next year's PWIM? 😁 It wont increase our 0-60 time more...
