    Suspension change-up

    Yes correct. I'm not really a 'looks' kinda person and did expect to bump up to 35's which never happened. In retrospect I'm glad it didn't. I would like to go with 33's, but the ones I would like are not in the correct sizing (not wanting a 12.5" wide tire). Thanks for the .02! I'll...

    Suspension change-up

    '06 TJ Current - 4.5" currie jonny joint, fox 2.0 w/reservoir, 31" shoes I have been considering changing things up. THis suspension has worked very well the last 5 years. But, changes in life event has me considering other routes. I no longer plan or expect to do hard core off road. 33's...

    Good ol' tire discussion - considering 2 options

    your correct, but I need a year round tire. If I had abilities to have a dedicated winter tire it would be a different story. At least the 3 peak is better than just a MT Yeah, going 12.5 for a 33" height seems silly to me. ANd looks odd, plus a bunch of extra rolling resistance that seems...

    Good ol' tire discussion - considering 2 options

    Interesting. I have not heard of balance issues for the KO's before... Maybe their manufacturering has changed? I have had zero balance issues with my STT Pro's, and no wobble at all after a 4" lift. But I just need a winter 3 peak tire... Coopers are great, but I dont think the AT3's are a...

    Good ol' tire discussion - considering 2 options

    Hey all. So looking into what tire to get before winter hits. I currently have 31x10.5 Cooper Discoverer STT Pro. They are about 4 years old, and must be near their end. Plenty of tread left, but lugs are warping in a weird way. Anywhoo, I wanted to get a different tire anyway considering...

    Diesel Gladiator

    I do like the idea of good mileage, with cheaper gas - although the DEF fluid (I actually calculated it out the other day) makes a near zero difference between diesel and gas. Thanks for sharing your experinece, at least with the 4-door. Like you, after seeing my dad's '19 3500 and all the...

    Diesel Gladiator

    I agree on the emissions... it adds so much complexity and I wonder how much that stuff will hold up to bumping around off highway, let alone off road. Diesels these days are way more complicated than gas, which it's supposed to be the other way around. But I suppose the extra torque may make...

    Diesel Gladiator

    I'd like to know how this turns out. I've heard lots of pros and cons from various reviews. I must say the DEF fluid thing really sucks... My dad has a 3500 cummins 2018 and every time I drive it it irks me theres an additional fluid need - added weight and complications in place of ability...

    Whats it worth, vs. market cost, vs. monies invested

    Good points from everyone. Lets clarify. Yes most mods I agree are crap, and also done horribly wrong, which sucks for any buyer. So lets use an example of a vehicle purchased in fair condition, and essentially fully rebuilt using highly common parts. An example I could refer to is an older...

    Whats it worth, vs. market cost, vs. monies invested

    So I'm tiptoeing around the idea of considering to part with my truck. For various reasons. This question can apply to any vehicle or situation however. Ultimately the question is, for a vehicle to have been purchases, modified, maintained, in great condition as we all know costs money...

    I love my GE. But considering a frame extension with a stroker and some other goodies to make it more realistic for my needs. Bump to see if anyone else wants to chime in on the vintage trailer works XTR or XTR XL
