Re: PW as a Toad

I like the idea of a car hauler for the PW. Time to break out the "google foo" to see what is out there!

Re: PW as a Toad

Came real close to buying an Unlimited Rubicon. For us, though, the PW makes more sense.

PW as a Toad

I am 10 months into PW ownership, so I thought I'd give a quick update before moving on to the main topic.... Right at 17,000 miles on the PW, using it as a daily driver and a couple of road trips. Average mpg is 14. No issues, except an annoying squeak coming from the dash (I think) - will have it ...

Re: Should I buy a new power wagon?

Yeah, buying a $50 - 60 K vehicle will set you back a lot per month. I just bought one. Fortunately, my credit union gave me the money for a six year loan at 2%, so it made sense to use their money vice mine. As someone had mentioned earlier, don't be too afraid of the monthly payment (as long as it...

Re: Opti-Coat Pro

Thanks for the invite, I think.... :P , but I think I'll pass. I know I bought a Power Wagon, but, at this point, I am not that interested in scratching it up. I am actually planning on doing more expeditionary driving out west than the woodsy trails we have here on the east coast. Additionally, it ...

Re: Opti-Coat Pro

It cost me $800.00. Initial quote from detailer was $1800.00. I expected it to be expensive because of the prep work involved, the size of the vehicle, as well as all the surfaces I wanted coated - I had all chrome, steel, and trim pieces treated with Opti-Coat Pro, along with the paint, and I had ...

Re: Opti-Coat Pro

Opti-Coat Pro is, indeed, applied by a manufacturer certified detailer. There is a version available to the general public. I opted for the detailer installed version. There was only one dealer within 100 miles of me. Prep prior to application of the Opti-Coat Pro was extensive. It included washing,...

Opti-Coat Pro

I went and had Opti-Coat Pro installed on my truck over the past week. Opti-Coat Pro is, basically, a ceramic clear coat to protect the factory clear coat. The intentions, for me, are to protect the appearance of the truck, to make it shiny, and to make basic cleaning maintenance (wash and wax) easy...

X3. Possibly consider hiring an attorney.

Re: TD's 2014 Red PW aka "optimus" mod thread

Nice, as a reference, I paid $395 + $100 for the lifetime warranty (if I recall correctly). Thanks for that. I doubt I'll be able to negotiate such a sweet deal, as both the detailer and I know the detailer is the only one in within one hundred miles of home able to do this. I do have a limit of wh...

Made an appointment for next Saturday to get an estimate for the opti-coat pro. Will have to travel almost three hours to get to detailer. Nobody around my neck of the woods is qualified.

Re: Finally Buying a PW

Speedy recovery. And that is awesome that your wife likes to drive a PW! Thank you. I had my first pain-free day yesterday in about four months (thanks to a block administered by the anesthesiologist) - man, I had forgotten what it is like! I will work very hard to rehab that shoulder. In two years...

Re: TD's 2014 Red PW aka "optimus" mod thread

Hi adeluca73. It has been a little over a year since you had the opti-coat pro applied. From everything I have read, watched, and 'internetted', it seems like this stuff is the cat's meow. Do you still like it? Are you satisfied with its durability (I know it is "only" one year old, but that is more...

Re: Brakes Lacking Power?

I just got my 2015 PW a couple of weeks ago. Without a doubt, my heavier F-350 Powerstroke has a better brake-feel. The F-350 also has brake pads for towing duty; I forgot the name-brand - I'll look it up soon. It is a very noticeable difference. I must agree with one of the previous posters: it sho...

Its been a while since you posted pics of the truck. Whats the hold up? :P Well, as easy as it would be to blame the hurricane for the lack of PW pics, the truth of the matter is: my wife has taken the PW from me! :o The reason she is getting away with that cruel behavior is that I am simply not ma...

First mod completed. Actually did this last Wednesday during a break in the rain here. Just in time for the massive rainfall we have had over the last few days, and whatever we can expect for the rest of the day/night from Joaquin. Decided to go with Weathertech fitted liners. Both the wife and I ar...

First impressions of my new truck: It is an impressive looking vehicle. I love the granite color. I suppose it will, unfortunately, show off the inevitable pin-striping. It is quite the climb into the cab, especially so with "adhesive capsulitis" (frozen shoulder), recently acquired thanks to being ...
