Re: Facebook Group & Forum - Tire Popularity Poll

well, shoot; I've been trying off & on for a couple years to buy some used DuraTracs but they were either sold or too far away or.... Finally I just bought a new set from my local tire store; I have been pretty satisfied all around with the DuraTracs. My Cooper Discoverer STT (old tread pattern, not...

Re: 2019 build and price, kinda

benking -

Hope you enjoy your new truck; you shouldn't have to wait very long.
Let us know how the 8-speed works!
According to my local dealer, the Trademan with Power Wagons are being built but there was 17 Power Wagons on order waiting for "next allocation"

Thanks for link with "Build & Price"

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...

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.
