Re: New Rear Bumper?

Also, the mount for the trailer plugs didn’t fit right due to the thicker material so I had to very carefully adjust the stock clips to get it to fit; then stabilized it with RTV (aviation trick). There was interference between the trailer plug and the closest back-up sensor, plus the debacle with t...

Re: New Rear Bumper?

Interweb says that's about a $1450 rear bumper and you paid $100 extra for the clevis mounts. Did they just stick them to the face of the bumper with nothing behind them? Web says the bumper is all 3/16" and 1/4" steel. Is the shell 3/16" with no gussets or bracing? Looks decent from the outside, b...

Re: New Rear Bumper?

That thing looks almost as bad as my POS Fusion bumper. :lol: Does it have zero gusseting behind a welded seam where the clevis mounts are attached, too?!? The base metal is much thicker than stock, but if I didn’t have to pay an exorbitant shipping cost I would have sent it back. As far as looks g...

Re: New Rear Bumper?

Got the TDK rear bumper on. I’m really disappointed with the lack of gussets and it really is mostly for show. I wouldn’t buy it again if I had to do it over. The included lights for the license plate require cutting stock wires and I’m not down with that, so looking to source a stock female plug eq...

Re: 2017 Laramie PW

Laramie Power Wagons don't have black mirrors. I don’t think that there were any Laramie Power Wagons in 2017+? IIRC, Ram got rid of the 3 trim levels and made the standard Power Wagon model based off of what was before the Laramie PW. You can still get the Power Wagon running gear as an option on ...

Re: Max tire size for chains

Keep the stock 33s for winter driving; they may not hold up well off-road but they are the best winter tire for trucks or Jeeps that I’ve ever had, and I grew up in Alaska and live here now.

Re: For Sale- 4th Gen Locker By Pass from myoung84

I’m interested - what is the year cut-off or is it to current 2018 models? I’ll be honest, I’m not sure if there is a cut off year. I know folks made them work for multiple year 4th Gens, but I’m not sure if there are years that don’t work. Well I guess my question is was this made for the 2014+ tr...

Maybe focus in on the...

Re: Fed up!!! (More dura trash)

Are the OE Duratracs only that bad, or is Goodyear in general going downhill? I have run MT/Rs on my jeeps and been pretty happy with them, but those aren’t 7000lb trucks, either. When my stock Duratracs are worn out I was also wondering what to get next. That being said, I haven’t had the issues ot...

If I could find a set for under $150/ea I’d buy them in a heartbeat, but I haven’t seen any stock for sale (let alone that would ship to AK). I like the stockers!

Re: 2018 Power Wagon Brake Issues

Interesting... on my 2017 the brakes were initially pretty soft, then as they broke in that went away and now at around ~9800 miles they are very solid. I wonder if part of it is how they are broke in?

I have a Throttle Down Kustoms rear bumper sitting in the garage ready to install when I can find the time. While the bumper looks clean, there isn’t much in the way of reinforcement around the optional clevis mounts that I had him install. So, in that regard I’m pretty disappointed that it is mostl...

Re: What did you pay for your latest Gen PW

2017 PowWag @ $62k MSRP, OTD @ $54k including getting a local bed lining job. Not bad for Alaska. No sales tax up here, either.
