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. Well if that’s not confusing, I don’t know what is. Alls I knows is that I hit about 35 mph on a gravel bar going over driftwo...

You assume incorrectly. 35s fit fine.

Re: The Power Wagon Curse

It’s just a list of trucks (and a Jeep). Maybe there’s more analysis in the article that goes with the list, but it’d have been easier to just say “buy any old thing you can afford and slap a plow on it”.

Re: Hello! 2018 Mojave Sand PW

Is there much resale on the stock wheel and tire set up? Yes, for the right buyer. Your truck is the baby-poop-brown special edition, so the wheels are unique to that model. Not really unique, mind you, but unique. They're solid black instead of black/machined like the other PW wheels. I still don'...

Don't be a goldfish and just remember five buttons. I’m only good for about 3 buttons, sometimes 4 if the water i...

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...

Re: Transmission Problem

Might be linkage on the trans or T-case not fully engaged. The bushing on the T-case linkage in the newer trucks can be a problem as they are soft and don't have a retainer clip. If the T-case had slipped into neutral, he wouldn’t have a forward or reverse gears. OP, I’ve never experienced anything...

Interesting. Do you recall about how many miles on the tires before the sound went away?
Nope, once I figured out it was tire noise I stopped paying attention to it. I'm a form-follows-function sort of person and I'm kinda deaf anyway so things like tires noise don't bother me.

Re: Scuffing sound on take off with BFG KO2s?

Just got some new BFG AT KO2s on the truck. Oddly, I'm hearing a fairly loud scuffing sound, only under acceleration, coming from the rear tires on pavement. We're talking very mild acceleration here. It's slightly pronounced in turns, but not much. The sound is exactly like the scuffing sound of t...

Re: Front Diff Blow Up

why is the driveshaft rubbing the skid plate ? That's the cross member that the front of the gas tank skid and the back of the skid bars bolts to. The regular 2500s don't have it. If you let the rear axle droop more than OE (with aftermarket shocks and springs, for example), the drive shaft can hit...
