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.

Re: Truck Coming in April - Will have 33s/Wheels/Grill

Lots of guys running Duratracs in this area and very satisfied so "crap" is a matter of opinion....

I am interested in the tires with or without the wheels. PM sent. Thanks

Here is a few photos of a Boss plow "undercarriage" on a newer PW, this was for sale last year & I never saw it in person - photos from dealer website.

Re: Western Ultramount II 8.5 on '13 PW

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.

I thought it was just Super-Glue, but it has been several years since I've had to do that.

Re: My extreme snow run

That's what a "smartphone" camera sometimes does - I have had similar photos where the phone software tried to make a panorama.

That is a good sized log to be carrying on your shoulder; has to be very dry wood and for sure not our mid-west hard maple...

Looks like fun in the snow!

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).

Re: Any Ordering Advice

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.

iBOOM -

How about some pictures? sounds like some impressive work using the winch?

When the trails get rough, I just slow down (slower than a walk); then the roll isn't so harsh - that is why I want a Power Wagon - for the softer ride in the rough stuff.

Re: Craigslist Finds...

That looks like a cream puff; probably never installed the hook on the winch line....
Average of ~4,000 miles per year for first 4 years, plus good maintenance records at dealers.
Nice, but I'm still going to wait for 2014+ with Ramboxes.....
