    Sticky: Re: Tire Size and Gear Ratio

    I run in very deep, soft, and rutted sand. Large amounts of torque are needed.
    31" tires is where re-gearing begins. Otherwise you will need to run 4-low.

    A steering damper is not necessary on a properly functioning steering/suspension system. It will only mask any issues you are having.

    Re: 1998 Hitting 233 degrees

    The V8 Grand fan clutch solved all my issues. Now I can run in deep sand at 210. Or idle with AC on and the temp stays at 210. The factory gauge reads 200.
