Re: Limiting straps

I got my thuren 3.0/2.5 shocks the other day and installed them. I noticed on the rear at full droop the brake lines are all pulled, and the drive shaft is laying on the skid plate. Has anyone done limiting straps with their thuren kit? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Limiting straps are primari...

No vehicles in wilderness.
Thanks for the clarification! Being from Texas I’m ignorant of such a distinction, that terrain is so foreign to me it might as well be mars lol.

5-10 feet from it you can carry on a conversation at normal volume. It’s by far the quietest compressor I’ve ever owned.

Re: Possible camp out in central Texas?

I’d be down for that! I’ve met up with rodeoflyer out at my place near blanco before. I think that would be great to meet some more centex power wagon guys and have some fun. There’s at least 3-4 other guys in the general area. A Texas get together would be awesome

Re: Borgeson 800123 box

Sadly there’s not a great box out there that I’ve found. I’ve tried all of them including the Borgeson and have wound up with a big 6 bolt rebuilt and tapped for hydro by Howe Steering. That’s lasted the longest for me going on two years so far.

Kings will break in just like an engine or gears or anything else mechanical. Give them about 5k miles before you make any decisions about valving. ...

Re: 2018 Power Wagon Brake Issues

You basically have to be doing something ultra stupid to get abs to engage on dry pavement in a newer ram truck. It’s not something that’s easy or safe to accomplish really. There’s so much computer manipulation going on to optimize braking performance that it’s difficult to get the truck out of its...

Plastidip is some pretty useful stuff. I used it on my external lowrance gps antenna on the truck. It’s held up in the Texas sun now for a couple years just fine

You can engage abs on dry pavement, but it takes some real dedication and I wouldn’t recommend it around other traffic.

Pretty sure it’s gear rollover. A lot of g56 guys run gorilla juice and/or slightly overfill.
