Re: Thuren suspension packages for 5th gen PW

My question is.. are their overland shocks better than the stock bilsteins? I've heard contrary. The overland's are twin-tube correct(?) vs the mono-tube stock bilsteins. Without a doubt the Fox and King options are superior to the stock Bilsteins.

Re: Anyone having excessive play in the steering wheel can c

I just went outside to see if that same little prone failure part is on my brand new 2016 and there it was. The outside housing appears to be about 1/8'' thick then the pin goes through some rubbery bushing within the housing. I can see it moving and this is a brand new and the part looks different ...

Re: Thuren suspension packages for 5th gen PW

Well the budget is relative but I'm open to any and all suggestions. The first thing I wanted to swap were the shocks/dampers because they make such a huge difference in ride and feel however I've been down that road before. The 2.0's are a good suggestion.

Re: Thuren suspension packages for 5th gen PW

I was checking out your build thread. Do you have the overland shocks or the King 2.5's? Well disregard...I'm reading the entire thread. I regularly (well in the four months I've owned it) load the bed and cab up with over 1000#'s of gear. I'm concerned about losing that capacity but will probably g...

Thuren suspension packages for 5th gen PW

Thuren now has suspension 'systems' for the powerwagons. I have a 2016 and it's so new I hate to mess with suspension upgrades yet but if anyone purchases their front/rear setup with the overland shocks please post your results. I Just don't want to be the guinea pig ;) . I like the on-road feel my ...

Re: New pw comparison

I post as verticallimit over there and keep trying to tell those guys who can't tell a torsen from a locker what the differences are :doh: . I also told them I hauled 25-55# bags of deer corn, 100#'s of icechest, another 100#'s of gear in the cab last weekend...OFFROAD :wink: . Give that a try in th...

Re: Swaybar popped out....2013 with 52K miles

The bar should co' and disco' pretty fast, but the bar needs to have no load on it. On level ground, it should be instant, but if mine is bound up I can usually get it to pop loose by just bouncing my fat butt back and forth in the driver's seat to rock the truck a little bit. I can actually hear i...

Re: Finally got one 2016PW

I do like the blue. I went white because I'm already pin striping it which is an understatement. Great truck!

Oh yeah. Thanks! The wheels are turning now.

Re: Swaybar popped out....2013 with 52K miles

I have a question (and it may not be the same on the later models...I have a 2016) while not assisting the op is relative. If the locker electronics are tied in to the smartbar/controls will replacing a defective smartbar with a standard one cause other issues?

With the 5 gens you have to purchase an 'unlocked' ecu which I'm not ready to shell out $1000 for just yet :o

If anyone is interested in a very lightly used K&N CAI I'm ready to sell it. I even purchased a blue Amsoil dry cone filter for it ($80) which fits perfectly (no oiling 100k filter).

Re: Performance gains

On my 2016 I've done the mufflex magnaflow muffler swap (very happy) and the K&N CAI which I removed within a few days. The truck really needs to be retuned to take advantage of the increase airflow from the CAI. It felt like there was loss of throttle response. Not worth the few extra hp in my opin...

Re: 2016 PW wheels?

I can't wait to swap the stock wheels. The first time they loaded up with mud it bricked up between the inside rim and caliper.

Re: 2015 level kit installed

I wonder if the longer center spud is designed to hold the spring at full droop? Bad design or intended?
