Re: New PW getting White Knuckle Rock Rails tomorrow

I’m going to finally install my WK sliders over the Thanksgiving holiday - any other advice beyond what’s in this thread? I have a couple jacks, stands, and a brother-in-law to help. They are powdercoated and I am going to Herculiner where they’ll be stepped on for slip protection. Excited to final...

2018 PW Newbee

The book you get with your new truck isn’t the manual. It’s an owners guide. The “quick start guide” if you will. The current manual is pushing six or seven hundred pages. If they printed it, it wouldn’t fit anywhere in the truck. You can google it. “Ram 2500 owners manual”. They don’t make it hard ...

Re: 2018 PW Newbee

Step one, download the owners manual.
Step two, read the manual.

Most of the answers to your questions are probably in there (you’re not the only one). Lots of stuff doesn’t work the same way as your Ferd.

Welcome to the party!

Hi All - We're long-time Xterra owners being "forced" into Power Wagon. I needed another 3/4-ton for work and can no longer justify having a dedicated trail rig. Looking forward to seeing what it can do. Welcome! Mine’s a trail rig that I daily drive during the week ;) The PW is going to make the X...

Re: Another Government Wagon Auction

Nice!

5.7L on the build sheet. It’s a 4G control arm truck.

The 4.5G was a rolling change in the 2014 model year.

Re: Another Government Wagon Auction

I was going to look up the VIN and see if it was a 4G or 4.5G, but FCA seems to have killed their build sheet generator on all their websites. So much for that. Glad I have mine saved.

Re: Instrument Cluster Lights

Maybe just leave your parking lamps on.... unless you want all your lights off for some reason. Stealth mode. For night photography, I'd love to be able to leave the truck running, all the exterior lights off, and the panel blacked out so my night adapted vision isn't ruined by sitting in the truck...

Re: First Power Wagon

Welcome!

If you’re doing frame mounted sliders, don’t skimp on the frame attachments. Have heard tales of guys with DIY or “I know a welder” sliders doing three and that’s just not enough support for these heavy machines.

Re: Relocating the USB / 12 Volt outlet from the center console?

Hi guys, I'm working on a project to remove the stock center console and replace it with a Troy Products console to hold 3 radios. So far, I've managed to un-bolt the center seat / console / arm rest. I'd love to be able to relocate and re-use the USB and power outlets found in the center console. ...

Mule's second line of text in the first post really covered this topic well. Get what the people you want to talk to are already using. If you go solo in places without cell coverage, get an InReach. Of all the satellite devices, an InReach bluetooth paired to a smart phone is the best you can get. ...
