Re: springs question

figured I would update this. my ocd wouldn't let me forget the driver side was leaning, so I kept trying to figure out what the hell was causing it. 1/2" just seemed excessive. my last '16 truck was within a 1/8" or less, side to side. so why should this '17 be any different is what I wanted to kno...

Re: springs question

I just did my truck in the driveway a few weeks ago and then had it verified on an alignment rack. My calibrated eyeball netted me 4.8 and 5.1 caster and 0.04 total toe. We’re essentially aligning a covered wagon or buckboard lol. It’s hard to screw up if you don’t over complicate things

Re: Rear Shock Question

My understanding is it’s not so much about valving as length. Stock gas and diesel trucks have shorter coil free heights than power wagons or his own lift springs. You don’t want coil springs popping out on the trail as you articulate because your shocks are “too long”

Re: Tires Fitment

Beat flat and paint worked for me. I did a couple relief cuts on the pinch weld so it folded over perfectly flat and rounded the end of the pinch weld that was still standing with a grinder.

Re: Front Locker Tear Down

Good work sir! Could you tell where the metal chips came from that were interfering with the locker? My front carrier case had started to crack from repeated shock loading I guess, and I found some little bits like that.

Re: Front axle breather location

Do breathers and a loop if at all possible. I’ve had axles and drivetrain parts push fluid up non looped breather hoses and cause spills. Potential fire hazard that’s easily avoided

On the 3rd gens at least, it’s on top of the trans where the bellhousing meets the case.

Re: 35" tire for those of us that tow?

The rt’s on my lifted one ton van see a shit load of highway + towing and dirt. It’s a great tire all around, does well on road and very stable when loaded heavy or towing. Wet pavement traction is great, I can’t comment on snow or ice. Offroad they are remarkable in hardpack,gravel, and dirt/sand a...

Re: DYNALOC™ HUBS

The dynaloc hubs are pretty damn nice, I have a set. They only work on the original long hub free spin kits though, the new shorty free spins don’t have enough internal room to use them. Believe it or not the Yukon hubs are a great alternative that use a simpler mechanism and are hell for stout
