Re: Tradesman/power wagon vs power wagon snowplow prep

If you build a tradesman and add the power wagon package you can add the snow plow prep package also. Just did it on the ram truck website. That’s why I am asking about this, ram states that the suspension is the same I don't think the dealer interface will allow the combination. Hence, it can't be...

Re: Rusty's PW Journal

Nice job! I bought the Thuren arms, but they're still in the box. I should have got these things. I may still do it. I definitely need the Thuren shackles. The ones I have are a little short. Do you Kno how the Thuren soft ride coils compare to the Carli progressive coils? The Thuren coils are a lo...

Because the snowplow prep group includes heavier front springs and the PW comes with linear rate 2" lift coils.
Yes. Actually I believe they (RAM) advise against putting a plow on a power wagon. Just like putting a camper in the bed.

I agree the horn in these trucks are horrible. They have a delay and it is impossible to just give someone a quick toot. It sounds for like a second, minimum.
Try to give a quick tap tap and see what you get :D
Just a quick tap never seemed to work for me.

Re: Trans Issues - 2016

I have always felt that if the gearing were a bit lower (say 4.56’s or even 4.88’s with the stock tires) then the truck would probably drive and shift so much better (at least to my liking).

However, the shuddering must go now. And that is just the EGR valve?

My 16 has 30K on it now and it runs they way it should,,,now. But that was after an EGR valve, the solenoid pack and having everything reflashed a couple of times. I'm finally happy with the way the trans shifts and no surging. Man, wish I could say the same. This tranny has me ready to throw the t...

Re: Towing Capacity

Yea. The dry weight of our travel trailer is 7000 pounds. Even at that, if I was towing it around a lot more than I do then I would be looking into a diesel. The hemi works, but it almost gets annoying with all the revving and gear changing just on the slightest of grades.

The loss you're going to take selling the Power Wagon without locking axles and winch will exceed the cost of lockers and a winch in the new truck. Wiring the electric lockers is simple, it's just positive and negative through a relay.

Thanks guys. I am going to look again. Can somone send me a link for the needle that works for this application? Amazon? I will keep you posted on the trans issues. Dropped the truck off this morning. While it's in there, request that they grease the front driveshaft... just for shits and giggles.
