Re: Cooper or Maxxis?

But your saying the 37x13.50R17E had a softer sidewall than the 37x12.50R17D? That literally blows my mind... Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk Not exactly. It was a result of a few things working together. The sidewall itself is not "softer." The sidewall on the x13.5 is very durable/thick. The...

Re: Cooper or Maxxis?

Do you think some of your specs could be wrong or that Cooper changed the tires? The 37x12.50R17s seem to be a D 50 PSI tire and the 37x13.50R17 seem to be an E 65 PSI tire. I'm not trying to be picky but I find your feedback very helpful and wanted to clarify. I'm down to three tires at this point...

Re: Cooper or Maxxis?

I'm on my 3rd set of 37" Cooper STT Pros. Nothing but good things to say overall, but there is some variation based on size. I've run these tires year round and found them to perform well overall. First set was 37X13.50R17LT . Required little weight to balance. Very tough/heavy tire. 85 PSI max E ra...

Like it. So long as the sides swing far enough to not impede any loading, I think it is a winner.

Re: Upgrading to 35’s

I think this will probably help quite a few people out to reset their Gen 4 TPMS threshold. Once my new Powerwagon arrived, I compiled all the information I had seen posted in various posts into one list of steps and took my truck to my dealership to get my TPMS threshold lowered. They initially ran...

I do run the full kit, resonator and muffler, some on here delete one or the other. Then there is custom exh...

Re: Ford Tremor.......

Looked at it, but didn't "feel" anything in the article I read that would motivate me to pursue one.
With that said, competition is good.
If it turns out to be a good truck, it'll drive Mopar to compete with it and improve the PW further.

Re: AEV KATLA WHEEL

I know I'm a bit late to this thread, but I have nothing but good things to say about AEV and the Katla wheels. They balance with minimal weight, and the support is outstanding. I had a set 3 years ago. There was a recall on a bad batch of wheels (which I was a part of) after I had already been driv...

Re: 4wd shifter moves back when accelerating

Does it on my 2015 as well. I've had zero issues, other than the occasional recall (of which we get plenty) so I assume it is normal.

Running 37" tires with minor trimming. Won't go back to 35s. Very happy with it. Still plenty of power.

Re: 2013+ truck steering nut recall?

I have an appointment on Monday for a different recall. I inquired about this recall. I was told parts were not available so the recall could not be completed. It sounds like maybe the weld fix is a stop gap for a vehicle that has already exhibited the issue.

Re: Locker Bypass Rebirth

I received my locker bypass today. The quality of the kit is top notch. I had previously bought a shelby kit, but never installed it, as it seemed highly questionable, given it essentially disassembled itself in shipment. The cables in the new kit look better than I would even expect from Mopar itse...

Anyone had any issues with warranty after installing this?
Pretty sure it would void any warranty, since it bypasses all the "safety" checks such as the 4L requirement.
With that said. If it was removed before service, I doubt it would be a problem.

I never had an issue with balance on them. The only issue I did have with them was quite a bit of sidewall flex and bounce on ...

Re: Wheel Talk

For what it is worth, I have been running the AEV Katlas for 6 months on 37" tires. They balanced perfectly and have had no issues with them at all. If the stock wheels had been 1/2" wider though, I would have stuck with them.

Re: Winching and Recovery 101

Hard to say. Would depend on how far down you would have to go through loose sand. In that situation, the blade type anchor might have an advantage.

Re: Should I buy a new power wagon?

If you are going to put up that much money into a new truck, why not take the time to go ahead and order it the way you want? Is there something wrong with the current truck? My personal opinion is to wait to buy one until you actually need one. At that point, trading the old truck won't hurt your f...
