Re: Overland 1.5 inch Spring w/King OEM 2.5 Shock

I’m looking to add a spacer to my tear as well to recover some rake post-Thuren. Is there any reason to choose a spacer that sits under the spring (latest Traxda design) vs. those that sit on top of the spring (pretty much every other option, as far as I can tell).

Re: Torq's Build - 2017 RAM Power Wagon (Nickname Undecided)

Really would like to know what you think of that iKamper. We have a nice Baroud setup now, but we’re reaching the limits of its size as my little 7YO guy keeps growing. iKamper would offer us more room, with a few drawbacks in setup and stow time - but if the quality is good and we are more comforta...

Re: Bouncing Problemos

Been meaning to update this! I don’t get the rolling back and forth now. I’ve still got a lot of weight up high, so I still get a lot of roll - but the shocks keep it from overshooting and oscillating back, so it just rolls in, takes a set, and comes back nicely as I unwind the steering wheel. Ride ...

Re: Bouncing Problemos

I am installing my Thuren 2.5 setup this weekend, assuming weather cooperates. I ended up going keeping the OE PW rear springs, and going with the Thuren +1/2" springs up front... so CG shouldn't take much of a hit and didn't make spring rates worse in the rear. Hoping that between more aggressive r...

Re: Truck felt squirrely on drive back

I can’t remember from PWIM, but I think you are on OEM track bars? How many miles? Might be time for Thuren or Carli replacements. I’ve been battling the same thing, but I’ve got a lot more weight up high in the rear. Higher tire pressures and a stiffer tire helped me, of course with a corresponding...

Re: New Shoes On!

Oh dear. This pressure/circumference discussion can bring out some “dialog”... At the risk of fanning the flames: within reason, the circumference is the circumference irrespective of pressure. Very low or very high pressures may be exceptions - but within typical operating pressures differences wou...

Torque Wrench

Browsing Amazon looking for a good 1/2" drive torque wrench that runs up to 250 ft-lbs... gotta make sure the Thuren 2.5 setup goes on correctly :wink: Anyone have suggestions on a favorite choice here? Prices range from $30 to over $300... I'm not a professional mechanic so I figure I don't need to...

Re: Tire Feedback

Time for a move to 37s. I'm running 35 (33?) K02 today - honestly despite the hate that tire gets, I have no complaints other than how small they run for a given size. Off-road they've handled the narrow, mostly sand/dirt/clay trails around here, the sand, rocks, and roots of Great Sand Dunes / Meda...

Re: Viair vs ARB

Last year I bought the portable ARB twin, thinking it would be a more flexible solution than on-board. It has worked well to air up 35s pretty quickly at 100% duty cycle. I'm now rethinking the "portable" direction - it is one more thing to have to remember, load, and secure in the truck. Bed space ...
