lpennock Greased front drive shaft on both the 06 and the 18. Was able to do 18 in truck. Had to pull the 06 and do on bench. The cross member just didn't allow the gun to get to the fitting.

@G. Mcpherson has hooked me up and will be shipping out the open ended lug nuts today. I was going to blast them and paint them, but figured I'll run it as-is and maybe paint them after this season.

I feel like I'm driving my wife's SUV with how low she sits now. Granted, I only have a leveling kit, but it looks beefy when the 37x13.5's. Ripping around now with these pizza cutters, it has so much pep and pick-up. These trucks should have been able to be optioned with better gear ratios, I have the Nitro 4.30's.

I have it on linear actuators, so I retain full access, but cut down my bed space by another little bit for them.

Yep, Australia, where anything from the US, Canada, the UK and the EU seems to attract an inappropriate premium to be imported and stocked locally. It's only copy cat e that comes from China that is cheap.

I'd also install a snorkel myself as I do with bumpers, exhausts, inter-coolers, etc. Even done several engine swaps over the years. That said I'm getting older and if it's something easier accomplished on a hoist, I'd give someone else the pleasure of the work

Jimbo Mounted up the 275/70R18 Bridgestone Blizzak LT's to some factory base 18" wheels with sensors (that I sourced from a local guy on Facebook marketplace). They were a b**** to seat, as the sidewalls were almost touching each other, but they're finally on. I'll balance them and get a picture later today, as I find time between working.

My truck is going to look so neutered, but it'll be much safer. Not worth the risk when I'm driving my 2 year old around.

If you are "going camping" then you must have a few river crossings to do and therefore there is nothing conservative about the snorkel. Even without a river crossing or two, I like the idea of a clean dust free air intake away from the engine compartment. Even with the RAM Active Air it is still sucking air from a lot closer to the dust zone when you are on unsealed roads. My 2c


On AEV’s website only $420 for the non-prefilter set-up. I’ll install myself. I can only imagine your in a far-a-way land?
