TD's 2014 Red PW Build Thread

Postby adeluca73 » Wed Aug 06, 2014 9:58 am

Ok,

1. The truck's name given by my 7 yr old son is "Optimus"--why, watch Transformers and connect the dots.

2. I started this thread to chronicle the mods, enhancements, and those functionally questionable, yet athestically appeasing upgrades I install on my PW.

3. Seek focused and concerted advice from all of these gifted and talented folks I've witnessed on this site.

4. My own personal ROE (rules of engagement) on this thread are:
  • Describe the mod and it's purpose
  • Post vendor and pricing
  • Post before and after pictures, and any interim procedural pics deemed helpful during the install


The first set of pics will be the stock as is pics. I will take requests for others if you have a specific angle or componet you'd like to see.

He meant a lot more involved and expensive engine mods such as a tricked out custom built power plant. Things a wagon used for truck pulls would have, not a brand new DD! ;-)

Lol. That's kinda what I was thinking!!

For $2000 that'll buy only 1 Thitek head..... Not including porting and polishing.

A decent cam swap and stock SRT headers would be a nice bump in performance. But tuning will be the biggest asset to any mod.

Can you post more pictures of the axle wrap prevention they incorporated into the 4th gen? Couple of different angles and such?

I only do what the majority of the 4 voices in my head tell me to. In most cases, I ignore two of them because one doesn't speak English, and I suspect the other is talking to someone else.

I just dont get that whole shock thing. A shock doesn't prevent axle wrap. You need solid links for that. Thats why you have upper and lower links on a coil suspension. Just doesn't make sense. And the axle disconnect up front, that just disgusts me there :-(

On the 3G The shocks are on opposite sides of the axle and a little off of the center axis, if you upgrade to 2.5" shock with better valve control it lets the shock help with the chatter/shudder in deep sand and soft snow. The upgraded shocks can and does help with the controlling the shudder caused by uncontrolled axle wrap. The axle is somewhat limited by the shock on how quickly is can twist and unload helping to smooth out the effects of axle wrap. It in no way limits axle wrap it only helps control its frequency/speed.

This same principle is being employed on the 4.5G with the shock in the center giving the shock more leverage on the axle to control it better. Much like a steering stabilizer/shock helps to control or even prevent death wobble.

Carli did the very same thing years ago with limited success when one considers the cost of the system with that shock. Here is a picture of their example.

Only 2k for BOTH of those? I priced JUST the Line X'd Diamondback and it was $1700, then shipping was another $150, then I also needed the atv ramps, bars and tie downs, figured another $300-$500 for those to be safe. So thinking around $2300 for mine, damn atvs cost me so much money it's crazy, lol, oh well. And I love that load flat rear floor. I don't know why that wasn't an option for the '12s, even though it was in the owners manual. I wonder if a dealer could install that for me....hmmmm.

I priced JUST the Line X'd Diamondback and it was $1700, then shipping was another $150, then I also needed the atv ramps, bars and tie downs, figured another $300-$500 for those to be safe. So thinking around $2300 for mine, damn atvs cost me so much money it's crazy, lol, oh well. And I love that load flat rear floor. I don't know why that wasn't an option for the '12s, even though it was in the owners manual. I wonder if a dealer could install that for me....hmmmm.


The HD w/ Linex was $1600 & shipping was $190 (includes a military discount). I did not get the ATV package yet, but will eventually add it later. The mufflex manga flow was $314 shipped, so I guess closer to
$2100 actually :doh:

Are you ordering from them directly through their Pennsylvania warehouse? That was the only place I could get mine from since I had no local dealers that could get them (Too expensive, imagine that) and that was the prices I got over the phone.

So is that pretty PW going to be hanging out in Huber Heights area next week? I'll be out that way for work... Would like to check out one of the new wagons (unfortunately I'll be in a rental car!)
