Re: Best Build Decision? Leather....

I trashed one and got a repairable flat off-road at Moab. The other guy running stock tires trashed one on the highway driving to the trail and got a flat on a trail. Of the other 19 trucks I think there were 1-2 flats total. ! Toyo IIRC. That tells me these tires are just shit. To be clear, Moab t...

Holy crap. So cancelled my holiday trip to Silverton early. Cross over the Animas river since there is not bridge, went around Kendell Mtn and started up Astra gulch and with 2" between death and a rock wall the first Dura Trash goes sppppppppppffff. Got in 20 minutes of light duty wheeling. We then...

Re: Best Build Decision? Leather....

They will give me 260.00 trade in on the Duratracs. Of course one is a new 300.00 tire. As usual BFGs have to be ordered so no tires for the 4th. I was thinking of the KM3 M/T. I had A/T on my Titan for years was very happy. But to me the M/T would look nicer. Also thinking of one size up. Not sure ...

Because if you build a new Power Wagon with cloth you are stuck looking at the tread pattern for those shit Wrangler Dynatracs forever! :vomit: Seriously, how inappropriate is this soft tire for this truck? In 16K miles I have had a slight nick in a sidewall on a DIRT road that took out a rim as wel...

Re: Alpine Loop - Colorado Camping

I always go on the 4th. The 4th is a blast. Just cannot camp in the Valley near Silverton obviously. We are planning to camp off Stony Pass this year, maybe just camp on the trail. The parade is fun and we always take a massive amount of Moriarty Ordinance with us.

Re: Rubicon Trail and Fordyce Creek May12th-18th

Wow that is early in the year! Sierras are that dry this year? I will be going in August. Certainly not two trails for the faint of heart. Fordyce has become insanely difficult, but what a beautiful trail it is. Makes all the wrenching and welding worth it.

Warn Wireless Remote Issues

So really needed my winch the other day and again the stupid Warn wireless remote did not work, in 90 MPH wind and I chunked it across the driveway. I called Warn and they said to ask for a replacement. Also confirming it works fine with our winches. But not sure if they are just BS ing me. Does any...

Re: Quick question on tire pressures

Yes on the door but why? No way the stock tires need 65PSI. Hitting any bump and especially off-road is like crashing into a brick wall. I have owned plenty of rigs weighing in at 5-5500lbs and 28-35lbs was perfect. No way a 7K rig needs 65lbs.

Re: Quick question on tire pressures

After searching endless old posts here, I came up with 50 front and 45 rear. I believe that is perfect. I have no idea where 60 and 65 came from the it turns the tires into wagon wheels and the ride is brutal. And I live off-road so forget it. I towed a heavy forklift at this pressure and had no iss...

Re: Transmission issue.

Snooping around the internet this seems like a common problem for Wix. Causing transmission damage, and even fires from cracked external filters. Making cheap ass filters seems like a dangerous game not worth playing.

Re: Pennzoil Ultra Platinum rebate (for guys with the 6.4l)

Most modern transmissions blow if you don't use the exact oil. However its 100-125K oil changes which is bitchen. However on my 05 Xterra the metal in the cooling tubes inside the radiator were vulnerable to erosion from the transmission fluid and every one failed letting water into the transmission...

Re: Premier Power Welder or Ready Welder II

I use the Rediwelder. Its a monster. Have welded anything you can think of and the batteries would still start the vehicles. You can just disconnect the battery on the repair vehicle and bring over one from another.
