Re: Tradesman/power wagon vs power wagon snowplow prep

There are people on this forum that have added snow plows to their trucks( just do a search), you don’t need the snow plow package to make it work. That being said, you can’t have the power wagon package and the snow plow package, try building a regular powerwagon, snow plow prep is not an option th...

So doesn’t the power wagon package on the tradesman include the same suspension that’s on the power wagon.
That’s how they are advertising it from Ram I haven’t found anything to say otherwise.
Yes, they have the same suspension.

Re: Control Arms

I believe Carli has 2 types, a standard and a high clearance, both considered short arms. The standard are 700 and the high clearance are 950, both are 1/2” longer than stock. Thuren’s short arms are 760 I believe, they are 1/2” longer than stock and bent for better clearance.

Re: 3G frame skid bars. Bad news!

It looks like a diesel with a DPF, so that plate on the passenger side would protect all that useless emissions crap.

Doesn’t look like they are using the same radius arms as the other 2020 models, they don’t have the holes in them.

Re: Overkill? (Snatch Block)

No need for a 36000 pound snatch block unless you like the added safety factor, none of the pulleys will be loaded to 36000 pounds individually. I attached a sketch, I’m no artist but it should give you an idea of the loads.

Re: Thuren Track Bar

You will need an extension, turning the wheels all the way to the passenger side gets you a clear line to the bolt but you will still need a small extension to have enough clearance to get your torque wrench attached. Also removing the axle skid may help as well.

Shallow socket and an extension should work. A deep socket may not fit between the tie rod and drag link

Re: Thuren Track Bar

I just installed one last month, I greased the treads on the heim, threaded the jam nut onto the heim, threaded the heim into the bar, measured to set length, put red thread locker where the heim met the bar then threaded the jam nut down against the bar. Set the bar in a vice, used one crescent to ...

Re: Thuren Track Bar

If you do the instal without jacking up the truck then the drag link will be in the way of the passenger side track bar bolt, at least that was the issue I ran into with mine. Had to dig out a shallow socket with an extension to make it work, the deep socket would not fit in between the drag link an...

There is always legacy power wagons. They will build you whatever you want. If I had 200k to blow that’s what I would buy.

I feel your pain, mine went in today for a stumble during startup. I have 93000 on the clock and thankfully it’s still under warranty. First words out of the service managers mouth were “have we replaced your cam shaft”? They seem to think I have a stuck lifter that has worn out the cam, no evidence...

Re: Rock sliders

The aluminess sliders are made out of steel. Their main flaw is they mount to the same spot the factory steps do, I believe Ram4roks had them and ended up ripping the mounting holes from repeated abuse, if I remember correctly.
