M1K3Y's 2015 PW Build

Post by M1K3Y » Sat Oct 24, 2015 7:17 am

Hi Guy's

New on here and noticed everyone is putting on their builds, well this is a crappy forum all its going to do is make me spend money, go out and have fun and probably break shit LOL!

Jokes aside I just turned 30 and bought myself a Power Wagon! I have wanted one for a long time, I work in Africa and will be home in a couple days....apparently I will be spending some money on some upgrades after seeing some trucks on here.

Well it might be a slow progress but I will keep posting pictures I guess as I add more stuff, for now here is the Truck in its "Original Condition" which I plan to change in 1 years time.

Some of the plans I have;
- Toyo MT tires
- Bumper swap out front and rear
- Rigid fog light install
- Snorkel Kit
- Overload springs
- Custom snow camo paint or wrap (since I'm from Alberta, Canada it's kind of suiting)
- And anything else I see and like

Hope you enjoy and thanks for looking and any feedback I get. P.s. can someone explain to me how to make the pictures bigger on here, I haven't figured that out yet.

Thanks,

Mike

thanks!

tires go on Thursday morning decided to go with a in-between size just to make sure I have enough clearance, went with the LT295/70/17 Toyo MT's.

just out of curiosity 315/??/17 .....what is the exact one your running with no mods on factory rims?

ok you guys are making me really think.

with the 315's how much room do you have before rubbing? just to be clear there is no rubbing at all on anything correct?

Hi Mike, I replied to your email but if you need any more info on running 315/70/17 ties let me know (i.e. pictures).

I also noticed you mention overload springs. I have the Airlift Loadlifter 5000 air bags with the Daystar cradles. After some custom mounting of the cradles the system works GREAT! Let me know if you want any info on that too.

Sure that would be great. I loaded up a car hauler trailer and sagged my back end really low so wanted something to fix that.

Could always just tell the tire place their the wrong size! Sorry your just hardly going to notice a difference from 285-295! and yes I was referring to 315 /70/17! It's like a 34 3/4" tall tire the new radius arm wagons seem to be able to fit 35" and up tires with minimal work as Jeff statesd!

So I'm not too mechanically inclined when it comes to this stuff. But what would you have to replace to make them fit with no issue?

X2. If you want no rubbing at all on the radius arms you could attempt to go with an aftermarket wheel with just the right amount of offset.

LOL! If I didn't live where it snows I might agree, but I have to always make sure I have room for tire chains. There are days I really envy you southern folks.

M1K3Y Can you tell us what over load springs you are running. I have a 33' bumper pull camper and it pushes the rear spring down a little more than I like. Thanks!!!

I would be interested in that cradle info. I had those stupid air lift plastic spacers and they kept breaking and separating
