Best money I've spent on the truck in a while.



What truck did you put them on? Did you replace the Fox 2.0's in the pic with the Kings? I'm about to go with Thuren springs on my 98 Dodge 2500 and am torn between the Fox and the Kings....


2014 Ram 2500 4X4 with Cummins. I tried a set of Fox 2.0's, and while it isn't a fair comparison to the Kings as the Fox's are 2", the Kings are 2.5 with reservoirs, the Fox's left me very underwhelmed. the shop that I buy from was very gracious in giving me a full refund on them so I bought the Kings through them. Had the Fox's on for about a week. I suppose the "big" Fox's with reservoirs would have been ok, but these Kings impress the hell out of me.

I guess I'm a little more picky than most, some would call me anal smile , but I've had the factory shocks, Bilstein 5100's, Rancho 9000's, the Fox's, and now these Kings. Happy with my last choice.

Installed Rancho RS9000XL shocks all the way around on the F350. I liked the adjustability, and the current $100 rebate from Rancho makes them a good deal. Limited miles so far but I like 'em.

Had 'em on my Ram. They were good for about 15k miles, unfortunately. Great when new, but didn't last.

Good to know. I'll save my receipt and keep an eye on them.

Installed a new thermostat before going camping. Supposed to be a 185*, but holds a constant 202*. Got word today that they're sending me a replacement, so I suppose I'll have a high-temp t-stat should I ever feel the need.

Those look fantastic and have even better reviews.

Air filter obstruction gauge has never moved. There was a post (CWH2?) about running problems and found air filter plugged. I thought it probably was time gauge be damned.

I'd swap fuel and air filters annually which worked out to 12-15k.

I only get 1/2 that mileage on this super duty. Air filters are on mileage now like all else.

I would call them. These are absolutely the best seat covers I have ever seen or used. By using the code TACOMA WORLD gets you $75.00 off.

Yeah... that was probably due! Weird that the gauge didn't move. What symptoms did you see?

The tricky part with the diesel is that you can pull a fair bit of air through a dirty filter. So your daily driving stuff works fine, but then you hook a load up to it, and the turbo tries to spool up and.... can't. At least that's what happened to me.

No symptoms at all. Remembering your post I thought I'd change it whether it needed it or not.

Hauling a7K GVW trailer was no problem. Of course I didn't know I had a trailer flat tire at 21K GCVW last summer at 65 mph!

Nothing of note lately on the do-it-all-diesel, but I changed the transmission fluid/filters and the transfer case fluid in the wife's Durango last night.

Installed a set of Firestone Airbags and found a leaky axle seal in my Power Wagon. Dealer discovered that it was an axle bearing that went and caused the seal failure. Glad it's warranty...

Removed the AFE cold air intake that the previous owner has installed and replaced it with the factory air intake box/filter arrangement. This was on my '06 Silverado with the Duramax diesel. I don't particularly care for oiled gauze type filters and the ambiguity associated with them ( too much oil, not enough oil, when to clean, etc, etc, etc).

It's something I've wanted to do for several years and finally got around to doing.

Replaced a broken tailgate latch assembly. Real easy to get done. Seems to be a common issue with older Tundras.

Changed spark plugs in the Wife's Durango. Much easier than expected on the little 4.7L.
