Re: Rusty's Build - 2008 POWER WAGON RC

Did more work on the truck today. 1st pic. Got lots of suspension travel in the front. 2nd pic. Measuring for limit straps to keep the front springs from falling out. My 14.5' Carli straps are too short. Need around 16" straps. 3rd pic. Replaced the rear brake line with a 4" longer stainless brake h...

Re: SimonandSimonBeast Build

Powder coat. The first rock chip and it's done for. My front bumper is done with Line X. It's held up well. But the red in it is fading bad. If you get it done in black. You then can always touch it up with rattle can spray liner. I'm planning on redoing mine with rattle can bed liner in black.

Re: Rusty's Build - 2008 POWER WAGON RC

My King shocks finally showed up. :rockon: It's been since 10/13/20 that I've been waiting on them. Now to find time to install them.

Question for those with King shocks. What type of clear vinyl are you wrapping the shock bodies with to keep them looking good?

Re: Aftermarket ball joints?

I believe EMF makes Carli's, so they're probably the same. And yes the splines or knurled BJs are only for use in a hole that a smoothie is loose in. I have still yet to jack the front up and test any of the joints, hubs, etc so this is just a shopping comparison and questionnaire. But I'll most li...

Re: Aftermarket ball joints?

Stay away from any ball joints that are splined unless you want to ruin your axle. The splines on the ball joint ruin the hole that the joint sits in.

That's odd. I just ordered a bunch of stuff from Don and he responded right back.

Try calling him. I can also send him a note on your behalf since I have a thread going with him.

Thuren still in business?

Is Thuren still in business? I still haven't gotten my King shocks that I ordered back in Oct. Don isn't answering my e-mails. I've been real nice on the e-mails too. Just asking for an up-date once a month since the end of Dec.
