    @patoz I ran a co2 tank for years in my old Toyota. They work, but sucks when they run out lol. And cold weather. Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk

    Hmmm ping tanks may be the answer! The idea is to increase the volume, run a large airline between the bag and tank, and it allows the pressure to change more gradually as the bag gets compressed. Supposedly keeps the spring rate more constant. Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk

    One other thought, using a different bag, the Firestone specs on this one say it's a little under sized. It's what kelderman has always used, on the earth roamers and what not as well, but I'm thinking maybe a larger higher-capacity bag would take less air pressure to hold the load. But in the...

    Its full air in the front. Running firestone bags only. The issue I think is the bags have an internal bump stop, they need to be infalted to 8" minimum to give 3" above the bumpstop.

    :D Yes coilover. Looks like Dana/Spicer has a CTIS system also. Can't find anything on the D60 front, but defiantly have parts for the 110 rear. Internal system it looks like. Might be worth looking into.

    Right, Low is fine for slow, but I generally do a couple hours of highway to 10-30 mins of dirt. Its that transition that I would like to figure out quick.... Maybe a bigger air tank is a start. If I could air up in 2 mins it might be ok..... Still sucks when its dumping rain etc tho. Hence if...

    30psi on the highway? I'm not worried about airing down, its just the time it takes to air up an down for say 20 mins of gravel driving. Wife hates airing up LOL If its 50 miles of gravel airing down is a no brainier, its when its 10 that it becomes a PITA. I'll take a look at the Air CTI, but...

    Big truck little roads! As stiff as the M608's are they still deform at street pressure under a heavy ass truck. Not bad at all. Climbed til it was too damn hot and went and jumped in the river for the rest of the afternoon. Beware of nude beach :D Stopped for lunch at a lake, its SUPER...

    Its the frame, not the door. My door doesn't sweat (well the window does) but the frame is aluminum and it sweats a lot....

    Yep hard to fill the hole, but that saves me 900$ too and my door does work fine :D Plus I'm not sure the Tern door has fixed my biggest pet peeve.... Sweating. Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk

    I didn't realize they had a square bottom door now! I will have to look into that. I am not real wild about the "RV" door I have.

    Lots of leg powered excursions lately, so we haven't used the truck in forever, but with thunderstorms predicted all weekend that sounds like a perfect reason to take the truck. Spent Friday night up in the mountains. It rained so hard it sounded like golf balls being poured on the roof! Yep...
