Re: Power Wagon vs. Rebel... Sibling rivalries???

Hey man, sure if you're not DD'ng it, can you buy a specialty rig like a MOG to do your weekend warrior duty or plow snow, I guess, but most folks here want a 'do it all' factory DD truck. Too bad the Power Wagon isn't that truck... It is shit on road and shit off road, where is the "do it all"? Bu...

Re: Power Wagon vs. Rebel... Sibling rivalries???

I am seriously disappointed Ram could not offer a decent nanny defeat switch and a manual transmission, or at least an auto that works. Besides a used Unimog, where would you go to get any of that in a full size truck? You seem confused, to put it kindly. No, I have a plan. The PW should have fit i...

Re: Power Wagon vs. Rebel... Sibling rivalries???

Hype?? What other truck can do what a PW does off road? Every 4x4 rag since the PW was reintroduced states that the PW is in its own class in off road performance. That's not hype, that's pretty much an accepted fact even from the haters that own other brands. FourWheeler mag had the PW trounce the...

Re: Power Wagon vs. Rebel... Sibling rivalries???

For that matter a Taco or Rebel isn't the same animal off road as a PW. The comparison is useless. Why not compare a Jeep Renagade to a PW because it's more practice for suburban living. Like comparing a domestic house cat to a mountain lion. The PW is not a vehicle for those that have to ask if th...

Re: Power Wagon vs. Rebel... Sibling rivalries???

The Power Wagon is really only a half ton. The Tacoma has a greater rated payload. Which is fine with me.... Half ton? Not quite. Just cause the payload rating is pathetic (for a 3/4 ton truck) dosnt mean its a half ton. I guess it depends on how you look at things... In my mind it is a truck with ...

Re: Working on the truck today - question

You could cut the brackets back towards the antenna base and radius the corners. Less noticeable and less dangerous minus the sharp corners. Yeah, I've been thinking about that. I may go that route. One of the reasons I'm reluctant, is that the bracket, screws and antenna mount have been painted to...

I don't think I would be too worried about changing the diff fluid yet. I used to run some Cummins trucks commercially towing and did 50k changes. Never lost an 11.5 rear end in a Ram but did have to rebuild the Ford Sterling rear twice for noise, every 100k miles. I did run Amsoil Severe Gear in th...

I was curious, I have the trip B on lifetime, 19,825 miles. Lifetime average is 15.7 :jawdrop: I figured it would probably be around 14 but almost 16? Crazy. The only thing I tow regularly is a two place snowmobile trailer. The truck goes off road all summer and is in 4wd most of the winter. It sits...

Re: Powerwagon Ike gauntlet

How about we solve the annoying shifting issues of the new Power Wagons by demanding RAM offer the PW with the 6 speed manual transmission! There, I just solved the problem ;) I don't think FCA is going to see the six lost sales as much of a demand. When the 6 speed was offered on the 3rd gens it a...

Bottom line on the trans is that the programming is utter garbage. The absolute worst I have ever encountered and this is closing in on vehicle number 60 for me. Upshifts and downshifts occur at the wrong times most of the time. I started adapting to this poor behavior and I think it adapted to my a...

Re: 6.4 oil

If you insist on the Pennzoil it is going to be tougher to find and expensive. I have been using Mobil 1 0w-40 euro formula from WalMart and buying the 5 qt jug for around $25-26. The MS spec is just a scam to get you to buy Pennzoil. It is a good oil for sure but there are no magic elixers in it. T...

Handling with wieght in the bed

This was the first time I had loaded any kind of weight into the bed, and it really wasn't all that much. Dry aspen firewood rounds, a little over half a cord I suppose.

AEV uses a stock height Ram 2500 spring, the Power Wagon uses a 2" taller spring. Those are not the same springs.

Not the same suspension arms either, PW front suspension is different than standard.
