    Where will your build thread be for the 3500? I'm kinda considering a Power Wagon or a 2500 Big Horn (Gas) regular cab with the Snow Chief package/heated goodies

    Is ATRAC always on?

    Always on in 4hi and low but it is RPM sensitive

    I was also looking at IMS. Ironman has a better warranty and customer service which played into my decision. Plus they weren't quite as backordered and I got free treds!

    https://www.electriccarpartscompany.com/72Ah-CALB-UL-Certified-Batteries This place has USA Stock. They are also on ebay and alibaba. I got mine from some leftover scientific equipment that was being recycled.

    My height didn't change after the 600 miles so far. I really don't mind the very slightly stiffer ride on smoothish pavement. It's basically eliminated the terrible nose dive (and subsequent seat belt tightening/brake locking) I experienced with the stock suspension. After doing some slower...

    So here's some info on the battery pack/house system. Capacity wise this falls somewhere between something like a Jackery 500 and yeti 1000. This is all scale-able if someone wanted to double their capacity and run two packs (144Ah pack). Given that LiFePO4 batteries can be discharged far more...

    2019 GX460 - The beginnings

    Where are there 4? I am aware of the two loops on the frame in the front. My problem with them is the location is so low/far back that it makes it pretty hard to attach to and pull without messing up the bumper. I ran a hidden winch mount with recovery points on my 470. Really wish there had...

    2019 GX460 - The beginnings

    I get it if you need to run something like a 35" for rock crawling or something but for the majority of people I think it's all about looks over need/function. The difference between a 31.5" tire and a 32.5" tire is so minimal that it's not worth it to me. In my real world experience all over...

    2019 GX460 - The beginnings

    I can't imagine swinging out a spare and then the gate every time I want in the back. How annoying! That half inch just isn't worth it. Plus C loads are relatively common in the 265.

    2019 GX460 - The beginnings

    265/70r17 is enough (.5" nominal clearance difference) and fits in the stock spare location along with other pros. Does it fill the wheel wells quite as much ? No.

    These look great. Was planning on RSG but for my needs these might be just the ticket.

    So far I am pretty happy with the ironman lift. I have a couple of quibbles with the airbag delete kit (packing, hardware, and instructions) that'll pass on to ironman for other folks. Otherwise though the lift is pretty decent quality and netted a very even 2 1/2ish lift all the way around...

    460 Luxury Lift: KDSS/Air Compressor/AFS Questions

    Well lift install went fine, no lean, and no lights. Need to adjust the headlights and will play with the compressor at a later date.
