The Ozark Overland Adventure Trail seems like an interesting place to explore.

Re: 2008 Winch repair/rewire help

Once you have the winch hooked to power, hook up the remote and power it one direction or another. If you hear strong clicking, your solenoids are most likely good. While powering in one direction take a mini-sledge to somewhat forcibly tap the motor housing to see if it frees up the motor to start ...

Re: Leaning truck

Also, I check measurement from bottom of rim through center of hub up to the bottom of fender flare. This ensures a vertical line and takes tire pressure out of the equation.

Re: Leaning truck

If you installed Thuren short arms, check your caster settings at the cam bolts. You could have one side sitting tall and the other laying back down low. Even if you didn't change the arms, check them. Also, check your coil springs are sitting nicely in position. Particularly check to top side where...

Re: 37" Tires on a 2008 Power Wagon

I know there are some people on here with 37x12.5 on 3rd gens, 3" Thuren coils. Not sure if you can still run the BDS long arm if they were designed for a 6 inch lift. Also. Not sure about that wheel off-set as it effects fender contact. I'm in a '13 4th gen with 37 x 13.5, I'm +22 offset with 17x9....

Still kicking. I think the traffic on here has gone down commensurately with the amount inflation has gone up in the last 2+ years.

Re: NH Overland battery mount

I would suggest a battery tray pad, and cut out holes where the bolt head are.

Re: Abel Components locker bypass kit help

I have a 2013, but may be similar. Inside cab, one connector goes to module, other goes to locker/swaybar control knob. You should be able to pop the control knob out of the dash. Disconnect the OE connector (no longer needed) and connect the wire connector coming from the Abel control module. Might...

Re: Abel Components locker bypass kit help

If you have the new version that totally bypasses the smart bar for lockers and swaybar, it is designed to install under the dash. It doesn't T in to the harness on the passenger side. One wire runs straight to the dash control. The remainder go through a provided firewall grommet where it splits of...

Re: 5.7 exhaust manifold issues again

I paid my mechanic a pretty penny to replace mine with stainless. Be ready to weld on some nuts to get the broken pieces out. At least a couple of mine were busted, or busted upon removal.

Re: RAMala Anderson's

Welcome. Seems like you've done some research and are on tte right track.37s, sliders and diff guards are definitely first priorities. Maple Offroad is another option for the slider, but can't go wrong with either.

Re: First service - any recommendations

Get a large tube of dielectric grease. You have lockers, swaybar disco and winch now. Pop the connections at the axle and smart bar and give them a little grease from time to time. They are a known failure point due to water / dirt / salt infiltration. Winch controller connector too. I have a new co...
