    Anybody have the SumoSprings?

    Sumosprings actually told me they can be trimmed (flat or at an angle to give it some progressiveness) but that it would void the warranty on them. Low risk at $300.

    Anybody have the SumoSprings?

    Just to close this out, I reinstalled the modified sumospring perch and found that the universal energy suspension bumps I listed above work perfectly mounted upside down to the existing hole in the axle pad. When the sumospring is threaded off, the ES bump will contact the sumospring perch...

    Question re max towing capacity for Ecodiesel

    I rented a bobcat e35 (7,699 lb operating weight) this summer and pulled it home about 10 miles on a flatbed. Have the factory brake controller. I know I was over and it didn't do it well, especially up a big hill (3mpg) but it did it OK. If I were towing anywhere near that weight more than once...

    Anybody have the SumoSprings?

    Sorry just realized I contradicted your removal time and thought I'd share my method. I have some of those ratcheting end wrenches (these are 13mm) and it minimizes the otherwise very painful experience you described.

    Anybody have the SumoSprings?

    So I had this exact plan and was concerned with uninstall time but I couldn't find a better solution for my occasional hauling. I lived with the rough unloaded ride from the sumosprings while I had the cheap puck spacer lift but after putting Kings in this weekend, I had to fix it. I pulled the...

    Anybody have the SumoSprings?

    I put the medium duty sumosprings on my truck a few weeks ago. It is leveled currently, with no lift in the rear and I can confirm the reports of worse ride quality unloaded. They have about 1/4" gap when sitting level. Waiting for my kings to show up from Thuren, which should bring it to about...

    Front Air Dam Removal

    See my post above. Annoyingly the intercooler has to move to access the bolts. Quick and easy though. I have a perfect condition valance and AAD in my garage in Portland, OR if anyone wants them. Free minus shipping charges.

    Front Air Dam Removal

    It did make me briefly consider relocating the intercooler to a horizontal configuration. Working on a skid plate & Front receiver hitch design right now that would benefit from it not being there, but not sure I want to tackle that job.

    Front Air Dam Removal

    Took the dams off my ecodiesel today and thought I'd throw out the fact that removing the bolts holding the two plastic brackets on each side of the license plate requires that you move the intercooler temporarily. Not a huge deal as only two 13mm bolts hold it on, but thought I'd add it for the...

    Rear Support

    Yeah, it totally makes sense from a theory perspective, and obviously air bags at minimal pressure would provide better articulation than something solid. I was looking for a real world evaluation of what that actually means in practice on a truck like this. I don't have any feel for how much...

    Conflicting Oil Standards in Owners Manual

    So after some more googling, I found a Mopar chemical catalog that listed the part number from my invoice and sure enough, it is the Rotella T6. I've got a message into the dealer to see about replacing it. Leaving on a ~2k mi trip towing on Friday so might not get it done, but as others have...

    Rear Support

    Does anyone have any experience comparing axle articulation before and after install of a Sumo or Timbren fixed support bumpstop replacement? I'd like to retain as much as possible, but the simplicity of not having to adjust air pressure in bags has some appeal for sure.

    Conflicting Oil Standards in Owners Manual

    So I had the dealer (Lithia Dodge in Portland) perform the first service as I had a radio SW update recall and a tailgate question also. Made an appt 2 weeks in advance for my ecodiesel. Got there and was told an hour. 4 hours later, I'm still waiting as they had run out of oil filters. Anyway...

    Rear Support

    I've been wondering about this as well. I put a level/spacer kit on mine while I wait for the kit from Carli to hit the market. It is fairly level while empty but even towing my little 2k lb offroad teardrop it sags a bit low for my liking. It has an offroad hitch on it for articulation so I...
