Re: SimonandSimonBeast Build

Looks great. Really changes the entire look of the truck. Thanks. Functional, too. I kissed my OE bumper on a monster boulder when I was in Virginia a few weeks ago. This would have cleared easily. It would have been all tire. Now I have to get a rear matching bumper to finish the de-chroming. Liki...

Re: Peter's 2019 Power Wagon Build Thread

Yeah,. The run of the mill jack stands just don't cut it. I had to put a 6x6 timber on top of my jack stands, and very carefully lay the chassis down on it to put on my Thuren shackles.

Re: SimonandSimonBeast Build

That's good to know. I have a meeting with the local Line-X shop today. So, the side attachments can't bolt up with Line-X in there? And where the bumper mates with the frame rails can't have Line-X in there? Just confirming. Is there something you recommend coating those parts so that they don't ru...

Re: SimonandSimonBeast Build

Yeah, that's what I worry about with power coat. It looks great to start, but once it fails moisture tends to get behind it where it cracks. I was thinking something textured or flat would be more touch up friendly.

Re: SimonandSimonBeast Build

The Thuren bumper showed up today in all its bareness. I want to get it coated professionally in black. I am tossed up between powder coat or something like Rhino Lining or Line-X. Any recommendations based on experience are very welcomed. Here's a couple unboxing picks. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn...

Re: SimonandSimonBeast Build

Verdict on the VL60 / Jackery 1000 is about 2 days (48 hrs) without any charging and with the left side set to 36F and right side at 0F in a controlled environment I will need to test both sides set at 36F and also one side turned off.

Re: SimonandSimonBeast Build

The ICECO VL60 arrived and here it is getting the first shake down with the Jackery. Will run it until the Jackery poops out to get a feel for run time. Of course outside temps will impact that, but just trying to get a feel for consumption with this combo. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210401/...

Thanks guys. Looking forward to wrenching and wheeling with him. Already spent a few hundred on bringing the interior, which wasn't bad, up to date. Rough Country seat covers, Weathertech mats, Grabbars, bluetooth JVC marine spec stereo and Infinity speakers all around. Next mods will probably be s...

Back to business with the Power Wagon. I went a little crazy with the bonus this year. First up, The Thuren front bumper I ordered on Mar 23rd looks about to ship. Got a tracking number anyway... Also ordered a Jackery 1,000 for some portable power in the house and on the road. Arrived today, pics t...

I was hoping my 18 yr old Owen would be there with his LJ, which will have a nice set of sliders by then, but he has a bash at OC, MD with other graduates that weekend....(read:. Trouble[emoji849]). So, just the 3 of us this time.

Looking good. I will be watching to see your off-road performance and long term review of the tires after you get some miles on them.

Re: Is there an exhaust fix

Do you know if this is a bolt up option for the '13 5.7, without and other modification to the exhaust system? And wrap or not wrap them? This is an area of concern I have little experience with, so any help is appreciated.
