  1. Ya, think I'll stick with stock leafs for right now. Does pretty well with a hefty load in the back, amazing how much the ride improves with weight. Will do bags if I start towing more. My track bar is due for a change so will go with a 3rd Gen conversion set up, coupled with some 1/2" longer control arms. Think the geometry will be fine with that? Hoping 2-2.5" won't alter much
  2. Looks like that set up works darn well! I generally haul decent sized loads of firewood, might look into an air bag setup. Do bags help the ride in the rear? I'd like to do leafs, but worried about losing capacity. Right now my stock front end bottoms out fairly easily. Mainly looking to get some better travel and ride quality. Guessing the front end will still be around an inch lower than the front with the thuren 2's
  3. My front shocks are worn out and I plan on replacing them with fox 2.0s and was thinking of coupling them with either thuren 2"or 3" coils. Not looking for any crazy lift, just a little more travel. My front end sits 3" lower than the rear and the thuren coils spec to 2.75" vs 3.75". Anyone have experience with those coils with a ranch hand brush guard on the front? Figuring it will take it down an inch Much appreciated
  4. Have thought about doing that if it keeps up. The only debris that I was getting in the valve was rubber shavings left over from the install. Hoping the strainer will catch the rest for now. Really like the whole system. My pressure has stabalized right around 20, lowest I've seen it is 17 getting on it.
  5. I probably have taken the valve out a dozen times now to clean it. When it would get stuck the pressure would drop to around 10psi and climb up to 18 through rpm range. Now I have the strainer in place so not having a problem with things getting stuck
  6. Ya I had trouble in the past with debris getting in the the return valve holding it open. The strainer alleviated that. Really like the system, just need to get the return valve in order
  7. Think my return valve spring was weak from the get go and has gotten weaker over time. Use to sit at 18 idle and 16 wot. The drop happens initially around 1800rpms and climbs back up in the higher range. The drop slowly got farther over time till I put some more shims in and slightly stretched the spring a bit. Think I'll keep an eye on the pressure so it doesn't get any higher. Wondered if fueling from hot rod VP44 and 7x012s had anything to do with it
  8. I was having some lower fuel pressure with my fuel boss: 16 idle and down to 10 full throttle. So I added a couple shims to the return valve and now I'm at 22 idle 17 full throttle. Contemplating taking a shim out, is that pressure too high? Thanks
  9. Does he slam the throttle at the end or did it really take that long to spool? Pretty nuts either way
  10. Interesting about the oil temperature vs coolant temperature. With the Quad I'm usually cruising around 208-212 degrees oil temp, but my coolant is from 194-204. Have a napa thermostat and seems to open at 201ish. Does this mean my timing is too advanced then? Thanks
  11. So I installed the new fuel pressure sensor system with about 5' of air lines, needle valve + snubber, and PTC fittings. Everything appears to be back to normal! Pressure is steady around 17-18psi cruising around. Definitely not fluctuating as it use to from the pulses. Thanks Moparman for showing your set-up. Mine is definitely not as clean/organized haha

  13. That's a pretty sweet set-up MoparMan! What size PTC fittings are you using for the male PTC going into the snubber and female PTC connecting to the sensor? 1/8" NPT to 1/8 tube diameter? Looks like I'll need a male PTC to come out of the snubber then a female PTC for the Quadzilla sensor. I went to test my pressure with a mechanical gauge that I have, but it is unfortunately broken when I pulled it out to the tool box. Started the truck to see what the quad sensor was reading and now it is up to 95-100 psi, so I'm fairly certain that the sensor is shot at this point. Will build up a system like yours for the new sensor. Thanks
  14. Then my sensor may very well be the problem! I'll check it with the tester first and start planning a new fuel pressure system. Think I'm going to bypass the electric pump at some point and solely run the fuel boss. Been fine priming the system by manually spinning the pump on fuel filter changes and not sure how much the electric pump really helps with start up. Should I just cap the ends going from the T to the pump? Would like to keep it somewhat intact incase I need it in a bind + close the system off to not expose to elements. Plus disconnect the electric harness to the pump. Betting it will throw a code though...
  15. I suppose the other possibility is that my Quad fuel pressure sensor has taken a dump. Though would assume it would not read at all: the pressure does fluctuate with fuel demand as expected (45psi down to 30's on mild acceleration). I do plan on testing it manually when I get to working on it. Ya I wonder if the bypass valve spring becomes weak over time, slowly dropping idle pressure. I've found all it takes is a minuscule flake of rubber to hold it up, thus dropping the pressure. I wish I blew the hoses out and added a strainer from the beginning, but I did the install in a parking lot haha.
