Yeah, their US office and showroom are in Oregon...pretty close to Portland.
If you click that, it takes you to their main page. You’ll see a Chat bubble pop up on the bottom right. They are real good about timely communication...they can probably quote you out in a few...
Howdy and welcome.
I think we all agree that you made a fine choice with the 470!
I don’t have anything to add regarding your first 2 questions, but as for rims, maybe consider some take-offs
from your local craigslist.
I have picked up 3 complete sets of Toyota’s “snowflake” rims, all new, from...
Any real-world experience with sliders on KDSS equipped trucks?
Right now,I’m looking at White Knuckle, Metal Tech, and RCI...
Any others I should be looking at?
For those with White Knuckle, does the 11* angle prevent them from being used as a step? We have a RTT, and use the current running...
It shouldn’t...mine didn’t.
What it will do is leave the dash indicator light on...the one that has the green light next to whatever ride height you are/were set to previous to taking the rear air suspension out.
Somewhere there’s a video on how to pull a few fuses to defeat that dash light.
Short answer is no, you shouldn’t have a problem.
The front suspension isn’t electronically controlled.
Only the rear suspension is. If you replace the rear airbags with a traditional coil and shock, you’ll lose this adjustability.
If you mean the KDSS being “electronically controlled”, it only...
If you still have the stock skid plate like I do, be prepared to clearance it some on the passenger side.
The sway bar (with the lean eliminator kit installed) will prevent the skid from fitting correctly.
No. GX470 has a timing belt only. No chain. And it needs to be replaced every 90k miles or so.
Even if the truck doesn’t have 90-100 k miles on it, the belt is still 15 years old. Rubber degrades with heat and time...an original belt with low miles should still be replaced.
Most trailers with RTT’s on them have “legs” at each corner that you can deploy to keep the trailer from shifting.
It’s helpful if these kegs are adjustable, so you can accommodate slightly uneven ground.
For example, emissions codes indicating that the SAIS system is failing/ has failed.
There is an inexpensive bypass kit for it, as the oem system will fail eventually.
Oh, and the air suspension is only in the rear.
Greetings Joe, from a NWFA member here in Oregon.
My personal opinion (I also had a heavy, armored jf80, with 35’s and 4.56 gears) is that your eventual tire size should dictate your choice.
If you think 35’s, I wouldn’t personally go higher than 4.88, specially considering your description as...
