If it's about Power Wagons, this is where it'll go.

Do they measure 36” with the truck on them, or 36” before they are installed on the truck?

Depending on air pressure, I think it is pretty normal for a tire to loose an inch in height with an 8000 pound truck sitting on them.

My 35” bfg’s measured 33.5” with the jeep on them, but were more like 34.25” before they were mounted (still quite undersized in my mind).
36” under the weight of the truck sorry for the confusion

Right now includes at 50 psi front 45 rear

Yokohama UPDATE

Post by Laramiewagon14 » Sat Nov 25, 2017 1:05 pm

So I got on the interstate today hit 65 front end starts shaking like hell. Rode to the mall where the wife wanted to shop and pulled into sears.

Guys hooked me up. Removed the bead balancing shit and balanced the tires. 3 of the tires took 4oz. The 4th took 4.5oz. Rides like butter now at highway speed. No vibe in the steering wheel.

Whew!! Happy to hear you got them properly balanced. I argue with so many people about beads I gave up. Lots of shops try to do it but always say no.

There are some tires that just won't balance well at all

https://www.pedalcommander.com

It’s a throttle response programmer that removes the electronic pedal lag you plug it in between you pedal and the computer under the dash. I got a hell of a deal on one so I figured I’d try it. It has multiple settings under different driving options. From economy to sport +, I run mine in sport setting 2/4 I tried the sport plus but I tend to spin the tires more than I wanted so I backed it off to the next level down.

When you bring it to the dealer you turn it off and it doesn’t appear with the scan tool

It is an expensive device that replicates you moving your toe about 1/2" farther. Just buy a damn tuner that modifies trans behavior and actually helps your engine if you're going to the spend money.

Depending on the price you pay it could be expensive, mine wasn’t to bad and at the time I couldn’t afford a full on programmer. It does what it’s meant to do. One day I’ll get a programmer. But so far I haven’t found one I’m totaly in love with. While we’re off topic what do you recommend as far as a full on tuner.

I can't recommend anything for the newer trucks. I've never run a tuner. I'll be getting a DiabloSport for my 11' so I can tune the trans and torque management. I have heard it makes a big difference in the bottom and mid on the 5.7 which is where it needs the most help right now. I need to tune the trans before I smoke it, these soft shifts are terrible on the clutch packs off-road at speed.

Did some trail riding today with the munchkin. Tires dig really well did 2 water crossings some icy frozen patches and some dirt trail climbing. No issues at all no slipping still want to do some further testing but since it’s muzzleloader season I couldn’t get down the trails without interfering with the hunters.

Exactly, not a huge chrome fan. But the interior package gave me all the heated options that help with long rides and bad days. Don’t want to have to give up driving a truck and wheeling because I got all busted up. Plus all the conveniences are nice.
