Re: Radiator Hoses: To Change Or Not?

Since you can't always visibly see if a hose is going bad I would replacement them just for peace of mind. I would also recommend replacing, if you haven't recently, the thermostat, the thermostat inlet tube, and the radiator cap and heck you might as well throw in a new serpentine belt while your a...

Re: Full weight of PW on OEM rockrails?

I have the OEM Rock Rails and use them to lift my truck all the time, in fact they are at least as strong if not stronger stronger than any aftermarket rails you can buy. That being said however the frame is still the safest way to lift the truck because rock rails weren't really designed be used as...

Re: Coyote Flats Trip Pics/Vids

Coyote Flats were on my to-do list this summer. So far I haven't made. I will likely be in Papoose flats very soon though. Papoose flats is very scenic was there a few years back, definitely a lot drier no water anywhere. If you have time you can also see the old Saline Valley salt tram station on ...

Re: 2006 Dodge Ram Power Wagon Title

The 05-09 PW is a Dodge Ram 2500 5.7 Hemi with one of the following packages SLT 26P or Laramie 22L. It was marketed as a distinct model but technically wasn't so when you run the VIN it will show as a 2500 SLT or Laramie. See my window sticker below.

Re: Missing smart bar

Great news, remember the dealer has to program the new smartbar into the trucks computer before it will work. No they don't. I installed the smartbar and plugged it in. Everything works great. In fact, my lockers lock quicker now. :rockon: The dealer never seen it. :rockon: Glad you didn't have to ...

New 4x4 In the Family

No it's not a new PW however I took my wife vehicle shopping this week to replace a well worn 2010 Jeep Liberty and lo and behold, she wanted a new Jeep Wrangler. After several rounds of "are you sure this is what you want!" keep in mind she is by no means an off-road enthusiast. We now own a 2019 J...

Re: PW vs Raptor Video

These raptor vs power wagon comparison videos rarely ever drive down any trails that have realistic rock-crawling, something that shows the true benefits of front and rear lockers and a disconnecting sway-bar, somewhere you might actually need that winch.

hmmm...I wonder if the performance increase is from a "better"/newer-design coil or if the old coils were just "worn out"(do they wear out?). Coils do wear over time they develop increased electrical resistance until the voltage drops below spec or dies and throws an error code. However OEM Hemi co...
