Re: 2012 PW

JBA claims these will fit with moving the heater lines. Am I falling for their marketing hype? Have to admit, I didn't research it too deeply yet.

Welcome to the site man, and congrats on the new rig!

Broken manifold bolts sound like an excuse for headers to me. ;)
Yup. Mine was fixed under warranty. If/when it goes again it is time for shorties!

I have been dying to since I joined the forum but it seems like I have something else that gets in the way every year. I'll get there one of these days even if I just drive over for the day and wheel with you guys.

Been thinking about this for on the truck to use in the field.

Re: Another PW lifted with Blocks and Spacers

Dean I have a 2012 and am on 37s with no lift or leveling kit. I did do the Thuren control arms to move the front axle ahead as much as possible. I rub a tiny bit at the rear of the fender well with the 37s on the factory wheels. I think you should be fine on 35s. I would echo others and say skip th...

Re: Frustration...

I keep thinking a 2nd Gen with a P or VE pump is going to be my next one. I can spend a ton of money going through it and building it to suit me before I would hit the price tag on a new one that wouldn't be nearly as reliable.

Re: 2011 PW Tailgate pops open while driving??

Mine will do that if I don't slam it shut (2012). I can tell if it is fully latched or not by pulling on it after I close it. It is in the latch mechanism somewhere. I have not pulled it apart yet since I can still get it to latch. I guess I should before it gets worse.

Re: Tire Feedback

I’ve been really happy with my 35/12.5/17 Toyo RTs. 25k mi so far and they’re between 10/32 and 11/32 (for reference, new is 18/32). I came across a set of 5 brand new 37/12.5/17 RTs in the classifieds near me so I jumped on them. The height/width looks great, and I think they fill out the wheel we...

Re: A Tale of Diagnostic Woe

I was thinking today my dream truck is a rolling chassis without a powertrain or warranty. Imagine if you could buy a brand new Power Wagon with blank integrated computer like a Holley and then fit any engine and transmission combo you wanted. Knock $20k off the price and build your dream truck. No...

Sorry to hear that brother. I was just without my manly steed for a week too while flying monkeys and dwarfs played with it. They were not happy yesterday when I drug them into the parking lot in the 90 degree heat in front of the boss to let the 70 PSI of air they put into my 37s down to a pressure...

Re: Recent Warranty Work

In this episode of I Love My Extended Warranty we replaced upper and lower ball joints on both sides, complete tie rod assembly, front pinion seal and a starter or ignition computer module (turn the key and get 12 to everything but it would not turn the starter over).
