Looks like you are adding a fair amount of weight to that beast...
Yep. Winch and cradle. And 120lbs ish of steel. But no worse than guys running ranch hand bumpers or fab fours

Re: Diesel PW Build Thread

Well a long day of measuring amd making stuff up here's where we are at as of midnight!! Tomorrow I pretty much need my truck driveable so extra motivation. I'm just hoping this turns out decent. So far I'm pretty happy. For clarification i am mostly making this up as I go!

Re: Diesel PW Build Thread

Progress!!! The uprights are 5/16 steel and the eventual body will be 3/16. Lots to go but the uprights clear the grill when the hood opens. Barely. Winch has about an inch of clearance behind it before it contacts the ac condenser.

Re: Nitrogen in tires???

I use nitrogen for on board air. It works in tires. It also works air tools well with almost nil moisture. But you gotta pay to play right That's probably quite the setup... pics? Specs? Probably cost a lot On my computer. I'll put them up tonight. The most expensive part was the tank and regulator...

If you go with DOR steering let us know... curious about it
Damagewagon should chime in but dor steering might not be a reccommend action. At least their drag link. He just broke it :shock: and they refused to consider it a product failure. Since it broke in the parking lot

Re: #BastardWagon Build

Small update. Bastard is coming to its new home soon. Been cleaning and upgrading the shop. Installed half the new lighting. Huge difference!! Picture doesn't do it justice. Replacing 8 halogen 500 watt lights with 4 led 150 watt high bays. Only 2 done. Wow.

Re: Diesel PW Build Thread

It's nice to see you working on your truck without snow as the primary background in your pictures. :rockon: It is ridiculously awesome having the shop now. After so many years lying on my back in a snow suit (cause dodges always break when it's coldest out) finally can just coast around in a sweat...

Re: Cordless impact tool

Milwaukee has the best torque and seams to last the longest. Ive had a few different ones and currently use there 3/8" impact. Holds up to everything I throw at it. Im a diesel mechanic by trade and work in very harsh environments close to Alaska. I have sent a ton of Milwaukee tools for warranty. ...

WOW, bright! Do they come on when the truck goes in reverse, or wired separately on a switch, or both? Wired them into the reverse circuit.

Re: Dodge Off Road brand reliability

Judging by the few pictures I have seen, it looks like the front mounts for the White Knuckle sliders are utilizing the same realestate as the long arm 4-link frame mounts. Has this already been confirmed? I'm not 100% sure, I know there have been issues getting our arms to work with Amp steps but ...

Did you not get the stainless shafts? With some minor trimming of the cross bed supports you can flip the shocks body up.
I'd have to look back on the order. I don't remember. If it becomes an issue I have a et of 7100s to fall back on lol. Sad😔

Worked a little on the kings today. Just the rear. Pulled them and changed the compression valving a bit. Trying to make it softer over the frost heaves. Still not quite good but defiantly an improvement. When I get bored I'll pull them again and make minor changes. These body down resi setups are j...

Re: Oil help?!

Synthetic is very different than conventional oil pertaining to viscosicity. A 0w-40w synthetic is actually a 40w oil that flows like a 0w when cold. But it's always a 40w. Conventional oil changes its properties as it warms up.
