    17" rims with 47x12.5" tires This is only a 3" lift with a 1" body lift, Does the body lift even factor into the equation? I really was trying to keep this simple. It sounds like it might fall apart when I hit a transition in the pavement at...

    I'm open to all solutions at this point, just want the truck to flex like expected. Way too deep into it with the 37s to not spend a bit more to make it right. I know when I bought the White Knuckle sliders they asked specific if I was using...

    My daily driver is a 2013 GTI with a Borla exhaust and Unitronic 1+ tune. The 2.0L turbo and 6spd is fast, fun, and gets 30 mpg and has a fighter pilot cockpit. [img] My 80 is 23 years old. It is loud, slow, and creaks. I struggle to get 12...

    Bit of a tossup between the 80 and the 911. I've wanted a 911 since I was a kid and finally got one last year. I absolutely love it. Like the 80, I picked it up a little rough around the edges, and like the 80, it's a never-ending work in...

    Yeah, wish I would have known the same. Live and learn, I'm used to that, just super disappointed that I did all this and still can't get out on trails.

    My 97 LX450 is my favorite and first never sell vehicle. The reliability and versatility it provides allows me to have other purpose built vehicles that are far less practical. It's been a mall cruiser on DUBs, daily driver on 33s, winter only...

    Short answer: Yes Longer answer: Because other rigs just didn't or can't hold a candle to the usefulness. Not just off road features, but it has the best heater and A/C of any rig I've owned. Tracks truer & more stable on ice and snow-packed...

    For my current situation the 80 is definitely my favorite. I live out in the woods, lots of dirt roads, a lot of time exploring and taking road trips, 19 month old kiddo, my wife, the dog always in tow, snowy climate, ski trips, towing a firewood...

    Short answer, no. Long answer: The 80 serves it's purpose and is a great all around truck, but doesn't do anything for me emotionally or "cool factor"-wise. It is a compromise between my desires and my wife's desires, which makes it the perfect...

    Waiting on Dobi retailer response. I got home late Friday and didn't send emails until yesterday afternoon, so likely a Monday response. Castor plates that are on it came with the Dobi kit.

    Just a quick note from my experience with CO2 (maybe others have an opinion). I'd recommend limiting how long you allow CO2 to stay in your tires. When I first got my powertank setup I used the air for both trailside fillups and to eliminate the...

    @Jgunner ... welcome to my world on this. If you find a solution, please tag me when you post it. I'm having that same issue and was just about to try the u-joints. Same thing with no wheel play as well. Very frustrating.
