  1. Front coil spring bending after Daystar leveling kit.

    I am no longer using the Daystar kit, but yes, that is how I installed it, with the pins coming through the top of the metal perch. I'm using the Teraflex kit now, much better quality but it's still getting the same result. I've had a bow correction kit sitting in my garage for several months...
  2. Front coil spring bending after Daystar leveling kit.

    I'm convinced it's a problem with the spring itself or a flaw with the factory spring perch (The piece that the bottom of the spring seats into) I took a look at a stock Gladiator recently and notices that the driver side spring still had a bit of bow to it.
  3. Front coil spring bending after Daystar leveling kit.

    Who is doing that? Definitely not me.
  4. How popular are Gladiators where you are?

    I live in area that has 3 cities totaling about 100k people, and I see at least one JT a week not including mine. What's odd is I was in Minneapolis about a month ago for work, and I was totally expecting to see a few JTs around, but nope, I never saw one.
  5. Front coil spring bending after Daystar leveling kit.

    Unfortunately, no resolution for me. I ditched the Daystar kit for a Teraflex, but am getting the same result, although the Teraflex is much better quality. My last option that I will be trying is to install a spring bow correction kit. Basically they are a pair of new spring perches that are...
  6. Received new meats for the Gladiator. Falken Rubitreks

    Well, I finally paired up the meats with a set of Quadratec 17 inch wheels. Putting that stimulus check to work!
  7. Just an FYI regarding fresh sap on your truck.

    Over the weekend I parked my JT in the driveway overnight, instead of in the garage like I always do. I came out the next morning and noticed the damn tree had dropped sap ALL over driver side and hood. Before I went to the store to pick up chemicals, I tried a bunch of stuff from around the...
  8. Received new meats for the Gladiator. Falken Rubitreks

    I weighed mine, they come out to 51 pounds real life weight.
  9. Received new meats for the Gladiator. Falken Rubitreks

    They are sitting in my garage right now unmounted. I'll throw one on the scale when I get home.
  10. Line-x for exterior paint

    Personally I would never do it to mine. The stuff is a nightmare to clean, you have to basically scrub it with a brush and even then it's tough to get the dirty look cleaned off. The more it's exposed to the sun the quicker it fades, even the high end brands. It's probably not worth the cost in...
  11. Received new meats for the Gladiator. Falken Rubitreks

    They're definitely a rare beast when it comes to tires, and that just makes them that much more interesting to me. I'll post pics when I get them mounted, which might be a while now. I'm probably going to put off getting new wheels to pair them with until this corona virus scare dies down a bit.
  12. Received new meats for the Gladiator. Falken Rubitreks

    Does anyone have experience with these tires? $130 from eBay. I haven't found much about them. They look very similar to Wildpeaks
  13. How many rolls of toilet paper can the JT box hold?

    That must have been from Andre the Giants personal stash?
  14. Front coil spring bending after Daystar leveling kit.

    I had it up on my hoist at work last Monday, and looking at it closely, I can see that the spacer is definitely deformed and stretching itself towards the tire, causing the spring to not seat onto it correctly. I've emailed Daystar to try and get a replacement through warranty, but they never...
  15. 33x10.5x17 options?

    They look awesome, and $155 is a heck of a deal!
  16. JT: Teraflex 1.5” Performance Spacer Leveling Kit

    I'm a little confused by this kit. It looks like 2 spacers per side, one says 1 inch, and the other .5 inch. So assuming you use both per side, that gives you an 1.5 inches of lift, but the instructions also say to use the factory isolator, which is .5 inches by it'self. So that would total out...
  17. 33x10.5x17 options?

    Would love to see some pics when you get them on!
  18. Front coil spring bending after Daystar leveling kit.

    I'm going to lift it up and take it a apart this weekend to try and figure it out. I'm guessing it has something to do with the poly spacer. Probably warping or being crushed excessively. Are you using the Daystar leveling kit like mine? This kit doesn't call for an adjustable track bar, and...
  19. Front coil spring bending after Daystar leveling kit.

    Just like the title says. I've had the Daystar 1.5 inch kit or a few weeks and I just now noticed it. The passenger side seems pretty good from my inspection. I installed this myself and made sure I seated the springs into to correct positions. Any advice or thoughts?
