Re: Thuren Valving for King 2.5's

Yes, Kings will make a big change. You don't need big shocks, but just being able to control the valving will make a big difference. For rock crawling I think a soft compression and stiff rebound valving would do you wonders. I know what you mean by getting beat up. Kings will take care of the body...

Re: Thuren Valving for King 2.5's

I have a question for anyone with kings, im thinking of upgrading, I have Dons Overland front springs/shocks now, rear is stock. On slower rutted out rocky trails like we have here in AZ the 3/4 ton suspension beats me to death so to speak I have to go much slower that Jeeps that I see... will the K...

Re: 4.10 to 4.56 axle ratio upgrade kit for 2015 PW?

Yeah, I was actually in a much higher elevation a few weeks ago, from Phoenix area to Prescott AZ, Prescott is close to and above 6,000 feet in some areas, truck drove totally different in the altitude. When I came back down home felt like I was in a different truck. For the OP, I would check with a...

Re: Power Wagon Picture Thread

Was out in the desert over the weekend, Butcher Jones area near Suguaro Lake east of Phoenix. Really Nice area with lots of hills to test out lockers ect. You can take trails down to back side of lake coves. I went up a few decent hills, was by myself so couldnt stop for pics on them. But here are s...

I will happily take shock in spring, knowing that I can stuff 4.0's in there. I wish there was a "middle finger" emoji to send the way of the "best gen" guys, as I fly past you with my 3.0's. Pfffffft. You guys do get stock long arms and engines that don't wear out cam shafts at 160,00 though [emoj...

Re: 2015 Front Spring/Shock Swap

Yeah , on the track bar, Thuren has it at Max when he sends it to avoid interference. Might want to check and make sure you dont have any issued with anything hitting at full stuff. Hope to get to see some pics : )

Re: 2015 Front Spring/Shock Swap

I've never heard someone say that Thurens instructions were good. That is definitely a first. He must give you "best gen" guys better write ups. I think my spring install paper said "remove OEM coils. Install new coils." It didn't mention the part where my driveshaft was sitting on my exhaust pipe ...

Re: 2015 Front Spring/Shock Swap

Yeah, I dont go off road here in AZ that much, would like to more, but I think air pressure is a big help with off road. My truck rides like a Cadillac on the highway at 70. Ridge grapplers are part of it. It s kind of stiff off road on big bumps, but I havnt taken it down below 40 lbs , im sure 25 ...

Re: 2015 Front Spring/Shock Swap

Ok, so its about time to order the overland shocks and taller hemi springs Thuren offers. Going to roll with the oem track bar for a good long while. Few questions. 1. Does disengaging the sway bar help at all in dropping the axle lower for the spring swap? 2. What size spring compressor is recomme...

Re: Power Wagon sightings

Was in Prescott AZ over the weekend. Saw 4 different PW`s A Granite Crystal Laramie 2016 or so, and a few 2014 or newer White ones, and a third Gen as well, plus Mine. :D All while driving so couldn't snap any pics, but was nice to see. Also saw a lot of Diesels. Looked like Ram Country !!!
