:cheers: I’d sport the white letters too!

What do they measure without the weight of the truck on them?

Will this method eliminate that "gear hold feature" when ascending hills with a heavy load. Annoying when you try to accelerate and you step on pedal to downshift and get nothing.
It wont downshift?

Re: ZR2 diesel test drive & test tow

So far, my biggest complaint, which was my WTF moment, is : It seems all the new trucks, regardless of brand, have tailgates that do not open all the way and are not level/even with the bed. There are fixes for the Fords & Dodges but not mine. Mine opens about 88* instead of 90*. When I remove the ...

Re: Thuren 3.0 KING on 2018 Powerwagon!

Just to be an advocate for 98% of users, don’t discount the smaller/cheaper/less-cool shocks. 2.5+ shocks are performance shocks, and are not ‘better’ in general. They are way way superior in a lot of ways, but for most people they are the wrong choice. I have 3.0/2.5-Bypass shocks and wish I had 2...

Re: The Power Wagon Curse

Plowing your own driveway is not the same as being a paid plow guy that is doing it 10 hours a day. This ^^^^^^^ If you are plowing for 14 hours every time it snows it helps to have a heavy duty truck. Cuts down on the maintenance and repairs a bit. But regardless if its a heavy duty or not, shits ...

Re: Locker Bypass Rebirth

Man, already getting tired of the hassles on my 2018. What a bad design. The rear seems to rarely be an issue, but its like pulling teeth for the front now. And when I need to idle up a steep, icy hill to do a recovery I can drive 2 miles to get it engaged. Yep, not having much control of the locke...

Exactly, and its non stop. The neighbors Tundra fell apart plowing yesterday and wedged sideways on a hill. Had to bust out the snatch block on that one. He went and bought a new Tundra last night. Hoping the electronic LSD gizmo and IFS will do it. Says somewhere he saw the Tundra rated #4 best pl...

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. That’s wilsonsinak’s PW. We wheel together a lot. Slow and safe with the winch is never a bad idea. Sent fro...
