Re: 2018 Power Wagon issues

I am thinking of buying one within the next year. I truly hope this is just a case of bad luck with this one. I know it's gotta suck having all those issues with a brand new truck. I'm like Numbnuts though. When I hear stories like this, it really makes me hesitant to spend close to 50k on a truck ...

Re: Best Build Decision? Leather....

Gravel roads don't count for off road in my book! But that is just me of course..:) And of course, I don't know how you wheel your rig! Your miles may be all on the Rubicon for all I know! All jokin' aside, I'm also looking forward to what the Power Wagons are going to look like in 2020. I hope they...

Re: Best Build Decision? Leather....

I definitely wouldn't want the Duratrac tread pattern on my seats... I feel bad that so many have issues with the Wrangler Duratrac's - but mine have served me very well. I can't help but wonder if the continual tire pressure changes that many people do impact tire leaking. I never dick with my pre...

Re: Best Build Decision? Leather....

I could give a crap less about noise. I just like tires that hold air. LOL! Along with that.... I also like them to perform well and hold up at 15 PSI, grab rocks, hard pan, slick rock, dirt, and get traction in sand, etc. Oh, and also they need to last while towing a 7500 LB trailer with a couple ...

Re: What did you pay for your latest Gen PW

2018 PW: MSRP of $62.8K, discounted to $54.5K including Tread Lightly affiliate discount. It let me absorb a whopping negative equity from a 2018 Challenger T/A 392 that must have been assembled by three year olds. That's a pretty big difference in rigs there! Sorry to hear about the T/A being less...

My list of things to hate:

Things to love:
Same 10 as yours...:)

This is my 3rd Power Wagon so I knew all your things to hate were part of the deal before I bought it....:)

Re: Best Build Decision? Leather....

I had less than 2000 miles on my Power Wagon when I put some new tires on her. 315/70/17 Pro Comp MT2s. No issues yet, other than they are a lot noisier than the others I've had over the years.

Re: What did you pay for your latest Gen PW

Got my 2017 about 10 months ago. It has the premium sound, nav, ram boxes, etc... MSRP was 59,600 or so. Got it for $48,000 which I thought was a great deal for SoCal. I bought it on August 31st, around 8 PM or so... I think it was a "bonus" baby for the dealership. I was looking at 2 others at the ...

Hey guys, I have an AEV procal that I purchased that does not work with my custom tune on my truck. It never synced to the truck but the package is open. Its yours for $140 plus shipping.

When did you buy it? I have a 2017 PW, will it work for that model year?

I'm in San Diego.

Thanks!

Re: Intial Impressions from a Noob

Funny, but who are we to talk? Our 3/4 ton trucks can’t legally carry 1500 pounds. Very true, but our trucks are very specifically designed for off-road capability. It's a compromise that I'm willing to live with. If you want haul 2000 lbs, get a standard Ram 2500 with the 392 and the 4.10 gears fo...

Re: Intial Impressions from a Noob

The Titan was a pretty nice truck when they were first introduced. Then Nissan forgot they made a truck and let it rot for literally a decade before they got back around to an update. Realy shame. Competition left them in the dust. It was some serious competition when launched back in 2003. I remem...

I carry mine in the Ram Box.

Of course, I can't remember off hand if I have the Viair 400 or 300....! Dang, if memory is not the first thing to go... I forget what was!

If I don't get the same type deal again, I'll be giving the Falkens a shot next time around! Let us know how they do for you! Towed t...

Had 315/70R17" ProComp MT2s put on my truck a few weeks ago. Have not did a lot of wheeling with them yet, but have towed my boat about 100 miles and they felt fine. They have done very well during the little off roading I have gotten in. So far, after about 750 miles, they get a thumbs up. Oh, and ...

Re: Why has AEV turned to such shit?

Howdy, just out of curiosity... How much effect on articulation does the 4 leaf-1 ton helper springs have? I currently tow a max of 7700 LBs but with gear and stuff in the truck I'm probably pushing the weight limit a bit. The helper springs would be a great addition if they don't hose the off road ...

Re: Thuren King 2.0 IFP shocks for sale

Installed them last night and took it on the highway. Now the truck stays leveled when going over bumps and patches of uneven pavement as if it is floating. That leveled feeling when going over those bumps was something that the King 2.0 never provided. The 2.0 merely felt like you’re on a bouncy w...

Re: Duratracs have to go, need options.

BFG KO2's are just an excellent all-around tire that also rides quiet on the highway. Some older BFG's had issues with balancing but the new ones balance out great.

Wow, lots of options, black and white, they are soon to be 2 model years old though so you'll take a huge hit in depreciation... Exactly. 14K off MSRP isnt such a big deal when the vehicle is nearly 2 years old already. Wish mine was that cheap, though! That's what I was thinking. In March 2016 I b...

Great deal on 2 new 2016 PWs in San Diego

I thought about going back to a Power Wagon (currently towing heavier trailer so I switched to a 2500 Cummins 4x4 a few years ago....) but just couldn't pull the switch as for towing the Cummins is as good as it gets... (about 9000 lbs) These guys accepted $43,000 for this white one. It has some odd...
