For sale: 4th Gen floor mats (new)

I'm selling the OEM floor mats that came with my 2017 PW. They are pretty heavy duty and were immediately removed when I bought the truck. Asking $75 (OBO) for all three plus shipping (USPS).

Re: Calvinm119's 2017 Power Wagon Build

Timgco,

Its clamped on. I just took a reciprocating saw and cut off the resonator right before the rear axle. I didnt want to weld anything because of its proximity to the rear axle and the lack of space.

Re: Omaha Orange Power Wagon

XPLSV, :doh: I hate to say that Ram Customer Service is stupid, but they are. They are still making a Tradesman Version of the PW. You have to order a Tradesman and then opt for the PW package. Additionally, I have seen a few new Laramie PWs on lots. You can even build and price the Tradesman with t...

Re: Antifreeze like smell through hvac system

My 2015 Ram smelled like coolant/antifreeze. We had the coolant system serviced and the freon in the A/C replace and nothing worked. They claimed that there were no leaks in the system. Like Waldo said, its probably coming from the the tank when the gasses vent into the atmosphere. Luckily, my 2017 ...

Re: Chevy ZR2 with Duramax and Front/Rear Lockers

:shock: $45,000?!?! That's almost $6000 more than what I paid for my brand new PW! :wtf: . Honestly, like others have said, it seems each of the big three are making their mark in the on the off road truck market: the PW being an HD truck, Raptor-1/2 ton, and the ZR2- midsize. For whatever reason, t...

So when I installed the Flowmaster Muffler, I tested its sound without the resonator attached and I really like the sound. It had a nice low, ...

Re: Air box mods

You can also use a 3 in hole saw to cut out an airway at the bottom of the airbox and run airduct hose from the hole to the to the front of the vehicle. You'll need to buy a few things to make it look cosmetically good. I did that on my last truck and it worked pretty good.

Back in the fold

Its been a while, but I'm back and boy does it feel good! While helping one of my co-workers try to find a new Ram HD truck, I stumbled across this beauty. While I wasn't in the market for a new truck, I couldn't pass on this opportunity to own a PW again. She's the same color as my old PW (Brillian...

Re: "Welcome Thread"

The ride is a night and day difference to be honest. Although the rear coil springs on the 2015 2500 were a lot softer than the 3G PW I had, but this new PW runs circles around a normal 2500. On the way to the dealership, the freeway roads were incredibly rough and in the 2500 you felt every bump. T...

Re: My new 2015 power wagon

I think everyone hit it on the head. The new PW is a great vehicle. I miss my 06 PW, but I have learned to love my '15. Does it have all of the cool things the PW has? No. But it is far more capable for what I need. Good luck

Re: My new 2015 power wagon

I had a 2006 PW and currently have a '15 2500 w/ the 6.4 and 3.73s. To me, it's no comparison. The 06 was great, but the power of the '15 is night and day. I drive like a grandma usually but when I put the pedal to the floor this thing is a like a monster, even with 3.73s. It took a tuner, ported th...

Hmmm.... Looks cool, not much too it. It's definitely a cool looking appearance package. I give Ram credit, at least they are trying. I don't think there will ever be a direct one for one competitor to the Raptor. It's just not really practice to spend $50,000 on a 1/2 ton truck that doesnt tow much...

Re: 2017 Raptor

Verdesardog, you aren't kidding. And sadly it's not just Ford. Look at the new Cherokee trail hawk. It's got like four different types of 4x4 traction control settings (mud, ice/snow, rock, sand). It takes the skill out of driving off road and to me it just complicates things.

Re: Ram had 3 diesel options for the Power Wagon, but they .

I absolutely LOVE the new 6.4. Like others here, I will never have the need for a diesel but I do like the extra low end grunt that the 6.4 provides. Plus ram will more than likely fine tune the 6.4 to provide even more (low end) torque in the future. As for the "stereotypical" diesel truck owners.....
