Re: Overkill? (Snatch Block)

This is with jeep weights but you can see all the math. So where it says 9k change it to 12k and then multiply out. That 18k becomes 24k and the 27k becomes 36k. Screenshot_20180209-165618.jpg Yeah, that’s wrong. Both blocks in that triple line pull see 18k lbs. Could be wrong. I didn't do the math...

Re: Best Build Decision? Leather....

You don’t need trimming for 35s. If you flex the truck with the right steering wheel input and romp on it, the driver side will self-clearance the front of the fender liner, but that’s a condition I haven’t been able to replicate in the driveway.

Re: Too many stickies.

Sometime in the last year or so there was a thread on site/forum improvements we’d like to see. I’m on mobile for the day, but when I get back to the hotel WiFi I’ll break out the laptop and try to find a link to it. “Do something about all the stickies” was something that had a lot of approval.

So first snatchblock should be 24k(ish) and 2nd snatch block should be 36k (ish). I'm not sure I follow your logic on this. Maybe a diagram would make it a little clearer.

Mechanical engineer, winch a lot. Can't think of a single recovery I'd ever rig where I'd need a block rated for triple my winch rating.

Re: Overkill? (Snatch Block)

The thing to remember about WLL ratings is that they’re 5x the breaking strength of the block. That high safety factor is for overhead lifting, where a failed rigging component might mean loss of life or catastrophic property damage. If something breaks, gravity takes over and there’s nothing you ca...

I won’t be carrying one in my wagon, but I think I might buy a couple for the m35a2, so thanks for posting this.

Interesting that this and the arb 9000 are both rated 10 ton wll. Pretty sure I know which is stronger lol.
Well, one of them is rated for lifting.

Re: Overkill? (Snatch Block)

See if they have any surplus military trailers to haul it in. ARB9000s aren't too much more expensive and are way smaller, way lighter. There's a strong chance you might actually have them with you if you need them. Notice I'm saying them "them". I carry two, contemplating getting a third. As little...

The only part I can't find information on is the inner axle seal for the CAD. Does anyone have schematics of the seals and source for the CAD seal driver? The video I posted earlier is a how-to for setting up both axle gear sets without the CAD. Delete it. Put a solid long shaft in there. The mecha...

Re: Registry stickers

Couple points. . . Does "with Ace's approval" mean you have his approval, or you intend to seek his approval? I'm guessing it's the former since you got approved as a vendor, but I'd like that stated more clearly since you're talking about selling the PWR logo. It's not "Dodge Power Wagon Registry"....

Re: Trans to hot message

When it happens on your commute, is it regular enough that you stand a chance of catching it on video? If the truck won't store a code and you can't take the dealer tech for a ride along long enough to show them, catching it on video might be the only way to get them to do something about it.
