Re: Sliders

I bought the aluminess sliders from a member on this forum. They mount up to existing hole so I didnt have to drill into anything and have been solid for me. No complaints. My main motivation for these sliders was honestly money, I got a pretty good deal when compared to buying new. Now that being ...

Re: Sliders

Despite being called "Sliders" I've always felt a hit is a better test. Any metal will handle being rubbed over a rock. But can it hold up to this: https://www.instagram.com/p/BiptpxUgRSc/ I think so. Know I've done that a few times. Tell you they hold up 10,000 times better than any of the stock s...

Re: Sliders

They're called "sliders". Aluminess work as designed. Cottonwood Ledge.jpg Yes, I went 4x4ing at Truck Haven a few weeks ago with my Aluminess sliders on the Power Wagon. They saved both sides rocker panels. Best $750 I've spent on the truck so far! LOL! They worked as designed on my 2010 and 2013 ...

Re: Sliders

I went with wk sliders. Drilling all those holes in the body to mount the aluminess ones scared the hell out of me. The rockers would be swiss cheese in no time around here with all the road salt in the winter. The aluminess offer a lot more ground clearance per se, but really the wk ones dont hang...

Re: Sliders

The Aluminess is aluminum, so it's soft metal. You'll put so nice grooves in them if you slide across enough rocks. I have their bumper. And I got some nice marks on the bottom of it. Aluminess sliders are steel. The problem with them is that they mount to the body just like step bars. Maybe OK for...

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

I have said this before, I think the manufacturers tires that are on many new vehicles are either made to a different standard or they are blems that they buy in LARGE quantities to get huge discounts. Vehicles that we bought new that had tire problems of one sort or another & they only last half a...

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 ...

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....:)

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...
