Re: '14 Power Wagon needs new motor at 63k... :/

This is like reading about a bad dream becoming a nightmare. :shock: 2sticky. Keep your '08 PW. Because I think you would be disappointed with the performance of the ZR2 diesel. From what I've been hearing. Mileage isn't bad. But when you put your foot down. It will trip over it's self. The respons...

Re: 2018 Power Wagon issues

That is so true. I have been researching the ZR@ Diesel pretty hard. Lots of issues with the DPF & regen & limp mode. One guys has been in the shop 6x in 6 months. He was so discouraged with their service & the way he was treated, he said he would never own a GM product again. They are ALL told "DO ...

Re: '14 Power Wagon needs new motor at 63k... :/

It is at the point where the cost of new trucks is simply just not worth it anymore. $50k-$60k-$70k-$80k & even $90,000 for a new truck & then to get treated like that, is just unacceptable. Sorry but if you have a 3/4 ton you should get a 3/4 ton to drive until they figure their shit out. Not your ...

Re: Snatch/yarding block differences?

Again, the load can't exceed the rating of the winch at any attachment point. The physics are straight forward. You do get a theoretical 30K of load, but it"s split between two points, the pulley and the anchor point. That's just the way it works. Here's some mathematics that show it better than I ...

So much speculation.

Re: Tax money is already...........gone

Moving slowly on the trailer. Got some E-track installed along the sides, carpet of sorts on the floor & ramp & got some E-track 2x4 holders & using that for the bed platform-tall enough to fit the ARB fridge's underneath. Got some bicycle fork mounts mounted inside up against the front wall.

Re: More camper shenanigans

Shackles are on, bronze bushings came with them (to replace the just about worn through in less than 1000 miles white plastic bushings, so thin you could see through some spots). I realized they had no bushing around the top shackle bolt, it really didn't need one but it was useless to have a grease...
