NPORA Fulltime Resident (4/5)



  1. Should be no issue. I’ve carried a truck on a 15ft trailer nearly 800 miles. Just keep it around 60-65mph. Don’t drive like you normally would with no load. When I did that it was fine. When I started to get north of 70mph constant for a significant period of time, it wasn’t too happy with me and let me know it. Got just a tad warmer than normal and went into safe mode. Let it rest for about 30 minutes at a gas station and we were back in business.
  2. Mines been this way since I bought it about 6-7years ago! it had just under 1/4 tank when I bought it. I test drove it for quite a bit so it was warmed up and went through the gears rigorously including 4wd. All checked out so I bought it and headed down the way. About 5 minutes later it started sputtering really bad and I got P’OD something bad and the seller wasn’t answering his phone which made me even more upset. He did call me back and ended up following me to the gas station to fill it up. Never a problem since now that I know that when I’m hits the 1/4 line, I better start looking for fuel. I now use the mileage meter as my gauge and have a Jerry can on board just incase! My guess is the fuel warning light it tied to the arm placement and nothing else. Mine never comes on except for the few times it’s done as the previous post mentions where it will drop to the bottom while driving for a period of time and come back up. While it’s down at the bottom, the light comes on. Otherwise, I never see it because my truck is slap empty at right about 1/8 of a tank on the meter. still get between 325-350 miles per tank regardless as long as I’m not hauling anything. my gauge arm also never goes above 3/4 of a tank either. Just something over had to adjust to when driving it-which unfortunately is extremely rare!
  3. Lol, naw but I guess it may be helpful to add in my setup for additional insight. Rancho 5000 strut w/ OME HD lift springs. Sent from my SM-A215U using Tapatalk
  4. Ok NPORA family, dusting this thread off to show that I DID try to research my issue before posting a new thread, but I still would like more current input from the pro's on here. The pic is kind of hard to tell, but my passenger side has developed a slight negative camber. It occurred after an off road adventure awhile back. Another issue worth noting is that when I took the front spacers off and drove it, the steering became increasingly erratic. Very much like the lower ball joint not being intact causing random pull. With the spacers on, this specific issue is not a concern. Not sure why the spacers matter with this issue. The steering has become more loose overall and has a slight "wiggle" in the steering wheel, hence why I'm doing a complete steering/suspension overhaul of original parts. To the question at hand, based on your experience do you think I bent my strut when wheeling? Are there any other things that I should consider before forking out for a new strut assembly. And since I will already be doing a complete overhaul of the entire front suspension already. Are there any brands that would be better than others for replacement parts? Thanks in advance for any insight provided! Sent from my SM-A215U using Tapatalk
  5. @onespiritbrain, must just be us that enjoy to wet a line now and then! Here's a few shots from a recent overnight float in the okefenokee swamp last weekend. Sent from my SM-A215U using Tapatalk
  6. Got the brakes bled, made a more permanent mount for the pop charger filter, and strapped up the recovery tracks I ordered awhile back. Sent from my SM-A215U using Tapatalk
  7. Strapped on the recovery tracks! Sent from my SM-A215U using Tapatalk
  8. Brakes all the way around today. First time doing drum brames. Wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Tomorrow, going.to have to bleed the brake lines i think. Still a lot of play in the pedal. Also will figure out these camber bolts for the passenger side to level the camber and hope to finally fabrocate the small spacers up front to level out the front end a little bit more.

  14. Thanks Bro! I may need to go check that place out. Need to change my back window out. It has some metal that partially melted in it from cutting metal and the sparks were flying into it! No telling what else I may need though. Sent from my SM-A215U using Tapatalk
