Re: 220amp Alternator Upgrade for 6.4

Yeah, I'd thought about that. I know when I did the research that going to dual alternators changed a pretty major wiring harness and wasn't plug and play. It was fairly extensive. So the wires from the alternator to the battery would have to be verified for guage. Sent from my SM-N976V using Tapata...

Re: 220amp Alternator Upgrade for 6.4

I keep eyeing the Mechman 370A as it's the one upgrade I didn't get on the truck that I should have. But I just haven't ever needed it. But of course soon as I do... or the stock dies I'll do it.

Re: Patagonia mile stars

General concensus on these that I've seen is that they are a great tire but don't last under these heavy trucks. But phenomenal on a mid size rig. Ymmv.

Re: Sway and oscillation

Does it feel like the rear end is wagging? Because that is the rear trackbar. Or your tire sidewalls are too squishy. Usually the trackbar. Also... if you are towing airbags can help firm it up. Honestly the rear trackbar design is boarderline criminal and shoulda been replaced before it left the de...

WTS - Abel Components Locker and Break Bypasses

I have the locker bypass and the brake nanny bypass that I never installed. I've decided not to install them and looking to sell.

Let me know if anyone is interested.

I'm sure you could trade someone for the 2016 wheels. They are basically the same just silver. I'd even trade you if it made sense. I have a set of 5 in my garage.

Looks like at this point (March 2020) they only offer two 17" tires that might suit our trucks: our stock size and 35x12.50

Yea, I tried it without the spacer but the bag then required more pressure for the lift/support I wanted to achieve. I may remove it after I install the Thuren shackles and king shocks.

the lower gawr in the front is because the soft springs. i suspect the rating of the axle itself is 5000 or possibly 5500. it could use a 7000 lb axle but would still be limited to less than 5000 because the springs PW axles are actually the same or higher rated than non-PW axles. Front is 5700 and...

Re: Air Lift Bags and Uptravel

I don’t remember the number, I believe it was about an inch less travel. You usually will have even less than that due to the rapid spring rate increase of bags as you compress them unless you have them fully collapsed at ride height. This is true. I run my bags at 0 psi most of the time, as they a...
