Re: Tire Feedback

Ride is super smooth and quiet as expected, just need to spend a little time dialing in the pressure for day to day street/highway use. The truck looks good. Gotta love the way 37s look so proportional on the PW. Personally I'm running 37" Nitto AT2s at 40front 35rear (cold PSI) when unloaded. Trea...

Re: The Cactus Red mod thread.

Decided MPG's were more important than traction. The AT2"s are much more efficient than the knobby's. Let us know how you like the CRE system and shocks! Did you go with the wet bolt setup as well? So far the cre3000 kit has worked very well (no shocks yet). All my cabinets and drawers stayed close...

I'll be leaving Vegas on Saturday, staying a night in Torrey Utah (Dark Sky town) to watch the stars and Milky Way then head into Moab on Sunday morning. I'll probably get to the campsite sometime around noon. Don't be surprised to find a new rig parked when you guys get back from the trail. Looking...

Re: The Cactus Red mod thread.

The trailer does excellent on washboard roads. My wife left a plastic hair clip on the bathroom sink, and after 5 miles of severe washboard and 60 miles of highway, it was still there. The upgraded suspension package (MORryde CRE 3000) and shocks on the BackCounty model is phenomenal. I'm one step ...

I like the cherokee on rubicon wheels. Those get around so damn good.
It did really well. The 35s, 4.88s, and rear lunchbox locker helped.

Nice, I'll look into the MORryde CRE 3000 system. I've not had much luck finding RV Shocks besides the Lippert stuff. I do mostly offgrid camping and most roads are dirt and pretty rough.

Re: The Cactus Red mod thread.

The Toyo's worked great last weekend. MPG went up from 6.1 to 7.8 on a trip that gains 2700' of elevation in roughly 60 miles, most of it in a 15 mil climb from Ashfork to Williams, AZ. I expect to see 8.5 or better on flat ground. Your trailer looks nice. How does it hold up on washboard roads? He...

Re: 35" tire for those of us that tow?

I have heard that the Toyo RT rides better and handles better than the AT2 in all scenarios. Interesting considering what they are both built for! A good friend is on his second set of 33" RTs on his Ram 1500. He got around 40k miles out of the 1st set with about 20k towing a heavy construction tra...

Re: 2018 Power Wagon, White Rhino

so do you notice much with the brace? To be honest, not really but I guess its more of a preventative maintenance sort of thing. Made it out on a trail last week near Coral Pink Sand Dunes in Southern Utah. Its a gorgeous trail that runs along the backside of Zion National Park. The truck performed...

Re: 2018 Power Wagon, White Rhino

Did I mention I really want to regear to 4.88, bc I do. Also looking for a tuner that will recalibrate my trans and speedo for the 37s. Does anyone have a current mfg and part number list for 4.88 gears on a 2014+ PW? I agree. Thats what has kept me from putting 37s on the truck in the first place....

Mounted up my front Diff Guard, by far the simplest "Mod" I've done to any vehicle. Trimmed up the inner fenders in the front (over trimmed and patched). Also got my rear bumper pad replaced and chopped my exhaust. No more melty bumper for me. Things left to do before Moab: -Mount Spare Tire -Mount ...

Re: 2018 Power Wagon, White Rhino

$175 and 15minutes of install and my parking sensors are functional again. Just waiting on the $55 bumper step pad to come in.

Also picked up a used 37" General Grabber as a spare. Will get it mounted to the spare wheel soon.

Next will be the spare tire bed mount.

FIND A RACE shop to do this, they do it all the time, don't be cheap and try this yourself unless you have a LOT of automotive experience, the exact right tools, and are really precise in your measurements and work...it's just not worth it.

No kidding. Has anyone recently found 4.88s for the 11.5 rear?

Might have to call Randy's R&P.
