Re: Ever get in a shoot out with terrorists and need to launch your rocket pack?

I find it hard to take people seriously who specialize in standing in the open and shooting paper while changing magazines as fast as you can. Never been in a situation where i couldn't, you know, seek cover while reloading. Shooting is the same as driving a manual transmission. Shooting is the thou...

Re: What came with your 2018

Thank you. The dealer says the key was found and in the mail. I just thought since it was a FCA product, it would come with the nice canvas recovery bag like my Jeep did. Would assume that dealer prep would do the unwind and hook connections on the winch. Probably better they didn’t, it’s a bitch a...

I'm sure we are getting the 426 in 2022. It'll probably be the 6.4L upgrade for a bigger size.

CM makes some 6:1 8.5T shackles in 7/8 for like 30 bucks. Skookum makes a 16T 1inch with a 5:1. For lighter stuff I have some 9T Warn Epic 3/4 shackles but they don't publish saftey ratings.

Re: Correct Recovery?

Any expierence with using the pullpal? I’d like to have some kind of Anchor really, I’d rather have too much equipment being by myself. I haven't needed it yet, but I wouldn't go solo without it. Even in a group it would come in handy providing an anchor point where none exists. Pull Pal is used by...

Re: Added 37” BFG KO2s to my 2018

The biggest consideration of 35s vs 37s is where are you gonna put the 37 spare as it won't fit in stock location. I've thought about that. I'd love to do a vertical mount on the bed cover, one one each edge next to the Ram boxes. I think if I elevated the tire about 2" off the bad the doors wold b...

Re: Added 37” BFG KO2s to my 2018

37s on stock wheels will rub some at full lock. I ran through Moab like that, and it's fine I'm now on 37s with +18 offset with 0 rub. My biggest regret and waste of money was not going 37s right off the bat. You don't need to regear. You won't lose MPG except maybe start and stop MPG but your freew...

Dakota Todd on the facebook pages has one. I'd ask him. I've seen it in person and it's decent. But I'd research it more.
