Re: Year-round shock oil for cold weather

Trading emails with Don this week as I look at going 2.5s, he said no to need to re-valve, so not sure where that leaves the discussion given seemingly conflicting answers.

Re: 37's Not Balancing

The classic Michigan tire conundrum - mud tires simply being suboptimal for our winter roads.

16PW - are you in a snow belt? I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts on the KM3 if you are.

Re: Aftermarket Shock Service Intervals

Ha, reading comprehension fail. I guess can’t really complain about 50k rebuild on a high performance wear item.

Aftermarket Shock Service Intervals

Gents - Farting around looking at Carli and Thuren offerings and dreaming about blowing lots of money come spring, I ran across the service intervals on Fox's website: https://www.ridefox.com/service.php?m=offroad 10,000 miles for a full rebuild with a 100% highway duty cycle? Really? :jawdrop: Obvi...

Re: Power Wagon Picture Thread

Truck looks great in the snow, Low_Sky.

I ended up winching off another truck. Considered snatch strap, but figured winch was safest option since I didn’t really know how bad it was hung up.

Re: Power Wagon Picture Thread

Had to use the winch today! Got a little too close to edge of rut and it gave out beneath RR, got hung up on rear differential. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20181224/f4645617555d90a16f630ec1ead95ed8.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20181224/28f73be83328c80584c911cf105d05d1.jpg Sent from my i...

Gears?

Considering going to 37" tires next summer if when my 35" are getting worn out. Even on the 35s I am asking myself if I should re-gear to liven the truck up some, so thinking that on 37s I would definitely want to. A couple of questions: 1) There are a few different gear suppliers out there - is the...

Re: 2020 Power Wagon - Spied

Who gave the green light to that design, Helen Keller? It's terrible. I cannot even imagine a die-hard Chebby fan defending that, and I grew up in GM Country.

If the typical Chevy styling trend between exterior and interior is followed, it's almost inconceivable how bad the inside will be...

Regarding airbags - Please bear with me as I try to understand the pros/cons.

Not sure that timing will work out from us coming over from MI - but mid-July is a possibility maybe. I think wifey is already going to be in South Dakota for a couple of weeks in late June or e...

Re: Bouncing Problemos

It was Chris at Thuren. In our discussion I don’t recall him mentioning their rear track bar kit - in my notes the rear roll center height came up in talking to AEV and PP - but perhaps he did say something and I missed it. At any rate I just checked out Thuren site and that looks like it is just wh...

Re: Bouncing Problemos

So I talked to Carli, Thuren, Pure Performance, and AEV yesterday. In short, the consensus was I need more rear rebound damping and reduced rear roll via a stiffer rear roll bar and raised rear roll center. Here is a longer summary of the conversations: Pure Performance, Carli, and Thuren setups all...

Re: Bouncing Problemos

I'm appreciating the dialog, as it's informative and I am not sure exactly what my main issue is yet! Lots of advice here to sort through for my specific issue.

It may be better in a dedicated thread with an appropriate title though - may help other folks find it via search for future reference.

Was the oscillation a type of bouncing, or a side to side? And was it the front or the rear of the truck? Aka did the truck try and squat and waggle on you around corners?

Re: Bouncing Problemos

So about 1/8” play in frame-side track bar bushing when turning lock-to-lock. This I assume is a strong potential to be causing my problem, or is it normal/acceptable?

Re: Bouncing Problemos

What's the best way to validate that the track bar bushing is good or bad? Visible damage? Excessive play in a specific direction?
