Re: 37" tires with 4.10 for those who do have

If you only do work in the forward direction, it reduces to a question of optimization... If backing something heavy up a winding hill in 4Lo is in the picture, I would think twice about the "weaker" gear set. I've been in 4Lo reverse with the wheels taking turns breaking loose - stock gears - hopi...

New owner from the PNW

Welcome, what part of the NW? I'm in the Everett WA area. Hoping to do some snow runs in the local area this winter to get the truck under my feet a little. I'm used to jeeps, wanting to see how a full size throws its weight around. In the snow, not as well as a Jeep. The big rear diff hangs low an...

Re: Recall done

On my 2015, the cruise on/off button stopped working after a day of wheeling. Oh crap, what did I break? My passenger googled it, there is a known problem with the button. He said flick it. I flicked it. Cruise worked again. No shit, there I was. . .

Re: adeluca73's Build - 2014 2014 POWER WAGON SLT FLAME RED TWO TONE

Highly recommend a helper to run the floor jack and hand you tools. I did everything but the rear track bar solo in a single day and I was smoked. With one or two assistants it should be an easy Saturday project or two very easy days if you split it up front/rear.

You may find this shocking, but Ram routinely has mistakes on their website, including the build&price tool.

Re: WTB: 2017-2018 PW wheel hub caps

Have you tried the dealer? If the center cap is common across their black wheels (thinking of the blacked out Cummins models, which seem to be pretty popular) they might actually be pretty cheap. I needed to replace a corner bed cap for my RamBox and expected to get raked over the coals for it. Deal...

Re: 18 PowerWagon Newbee

I love the truck overall but the transmission will not hold the truck at a slow pace on switchbacks without a heavy dose of braking. Wondering if anyone has geared down or if there might be another alternative. Low gear lets the truck accelerate to 25mph before kicking down to approximately 18mph b...

Re: 37x12.5 on AEV Saltas – metal trimming or liner only (2018)?

Good looking truck jameswyatt.i know this has most likely been answered and or bet to death, but how much more offset do the aev rim have than stock . Thanks I've seen conflicting numbers, but I think the current PW rims are +44, or thereabouts. The AEV Ram wheels are +27. So about 17mm less offset...

There is build, then it goes to another building where things like the bedliner is installed (not sure what else) and then it waits for a train. Then it spends a few days or a week+ on the train to get unloaded and transfer to the next train in a week or two, then they unload it a few days after th...

To add the axles, the wiring is very easy. Just need 12V hot and ground wires, and switches in the cab. The other two wires in the plug are for the sensing required by the smart bar. A little searching on this forum will show you the pin outs in the plugs. If you want to move the smart bar over, jus...
