Re: Shock oil for cold weather

In Alberta temperature change are extreme from -40*c in the winter to 40*c in the summer. And my shocks aren’t going to perform like they are intended to (with custom valving for my driving style) with a thinner oil in that heat when I’m actually driving fast enough to use them. Maxima 7wt and Amso...

Does the switch disable the dash knob entirely, or just the “bypassiness”?

Year-round shock oil for cold weather

The change in fluid viscosity does generally necessitate a change in valving. The viscosity change does make a really big difference without changing valving. John I’m almost positive that is a custom stack specifically for the 7wt Maxima I guess it would depend on what temperature Don’s stacks are...

Shock oil for cold weather

Is that oil interchangeable with existing valving and King shock oil? Meaning, do you need to change your valving to maintain the same dampening characteristics as King shock oil? Don knew I would be using Maxima when he sent my order to the King mothership. I don’t know for sure if that changed an...

Year-round shock oil for cold weather

Before I ordered my 2.5" Kings from DamageWagon, I heard stories about how King shocks ride like a dump truck in the cold. Given that I live somewhere cold, I was concerned about this. I did some research. I ordered my Kings dry. I chose my own shock oil and filled/charged them myself. I've driven o...

Re: Grind/rub on Acceleration

Do you have an exhaust part near to anything? I get this from my exhaust being too close to a crossmember I hope not cause my exhaust is stock. The only current mod to the truck is AEV wheels w/ 35 inch Toyo MTs. Thought is might be the tread but it sure sounds like it’s coming from the front? Sent...

Re: Front Driveshaft Grease Fitting doesn't want to take grease

Thanks for the replies. As I'm still under warranty and have to go in for a U53 recall, I think I'm going to let the dealer take a look at it. No clue how to take the front driveshaft out, but I guess I'll have a look in the event I have to do it in the future. 50/50 odds the dealer won’t have a cl...

Re: Gears?

Compared to OEM 4.10s with 33’s, you’ll have approximately the same gearing with 4.56/35” and 4.88/37”.

For 37s, even 5.13s are a good choice if you want to go a little deeper than factory gearing.

Re: sway bar links-crooked

The flange on the metal sleeve that goes into the ball is supposed to go up against the axle mount. You have it the other way around.

Other than that, I don’t see anything wrong with it.

2020 Power Wagon - Spied

The TRX and the Rumored 7.0L are going to be interesting to watch. My biggest complaint on my 2012 is the total lack of a passing gear. When on a two lane highway approaching 65mph and wanting to pass a slower vehicle it would be nice to have more power. I know these trucks are basically a big bric...

Re: 2018 PW Front Bumper

To heck with front park sensors. I reverse park almost everywhere I go anyway. My rear park sensors have been dead for a while, I never rely on them so I doubt I'll ever try too hard to get them fixed. Back-up camera is the bees knees, 3G owners get your salt ready to throw.

Alaska Earthquake

I lost a whitetail deer mount and my grandpa’s 30” drafting T-square. Everything else can be replaced easily, not enough damage to meet my renter’s insurance deductible.

.... and sleep. Lost a whole lot of sleep.

Got these put on last night and they are way grippy. Hankook Dynapro MT 35x12.50r17, studded and machine siped on the center lugs. I can’t wait to see how these do off-road in the snow. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20181127/4540c83b28043db565ae452ea03aaaff.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2...
