Re: Not a PW owner ... YET!

You can go to a dealer and "order/configure" the 2019's now and get pricing but my local dealer said orders won't go in until maybe April, with possible delivery in July?? I did see someone on the Forum has ordered a Tradesman version already. I stopped by my local dealer last week; he did a configu...

Re: Another Government Wagon Auction

Wow! - That 2005 is almost the same as my 2003 except I don't have the PW package.
I do have more rust on the body/fenders but the interior & topper on mine are nicer.

I would say it is worth $5500 if that is the price range someone is looking for.

Wow, that's funny that you have not plowed snow yet! I've plowed at least 15 times so far this "snow season" - those snow piles in background are 8' high! Interested to hear how the PW works out for you for snow plowing.

Re: Thoughts ? 2008 QC G-56

You might be able to get around $28,000 or so selling it outright; there was a similar truck on here a little while back (think it was auto trans). The problem is there are too few people that really know what a PW is worth. Toyota's are supposed to hold their value - if you got a real good price wh...

Rochester is pretty nice town; I was there at Mayo Clinic for a hip replacement. Some of the best medical care in the USA & maybe in the world.

That Orange is a "catchy" color - looks like they added just about every available option to that (can't add Ramboxes with low volume paint color).

If you don't have your heart set on brand new; try a Nationwide search on CarGurus for used 2017 Ram PowerWagons; there are several pretty nice 2017 models for sale around the country with fairly low miles.

That tire tread pattern looks very, very similar to the new Yokohama Geolandar M/T G003, and also very similar to the Cooper Discoverer STT that I have (no longer available). Should be a great tire, too bad it's so difficult to get Toyo's in these parts. I have noticed that wider tires seem to be co...

Re: Power Wagon sightings

Out for a morning walk; spotted two US government Power Wagon Tradesman in black - a fair size boat trailer behind one. Not sure if they are Border Patrol, special drug enforcement, or federal fish biologists. Both trucks have "law-enforcement style" laptop computers bolted in to the center console.
