Re: 2020 Power Wagon - Spied

Unlock is a separate button, as apposed to turning the dial back. It may not be different but there is a chance. Let me get them to ask Ram. Suspension was raised 7MM in front per Ram and goes from 521 to 538 RTI. The 3 positions of the dial (Unlock - Rear - Both) are now 3 different buttons (Unloc...

Re: 37's Not Balancing

I finally got the KM3's on Friday. First impressions are great! Smooth and quiet. Height wise I can't tell a difference, but I'm pretty sure they measure .2" shorter than the STT. Width wise they are definitely narrower which I'm completely fine with since I NO LONGER HAVE ANY RUBBING! I now have a...

Re: The Power Wagon Curse

It’s just a list of trucks (and a Jeep).

Ha, reading comprehension fail. I guess can’t really complain about 50k rebuild on a high performance wear item.
Stock quality level replacements are going to be in that ballpark too anyway.

Jesus Christ. Glad I haven't had the budget to get a rear for either the PW or the GF's 4Runner. Amazing looking detailed products, but apparently not produce-able.

Re: New Rear Bumper?

Any new rear bumper findings. Got smacked on the way home yesterday. Same day my Thuren front shipped.

Or at a minimum for appearance sake, are the ‘17+ stock rests painted or powder coated like the front?

Re: Cooper or Maxxis?

I'm curious to see what the limits of this power wagon is, especially with 37s. I'll keeping pushing to find it. I saw a test drive video of a power wagon doing crown king. Wasn't too long of a video,but they did show it do one of the tougher obstacles with ease. I just have always wanted to do it ...

Re: Cooper or Maxxis?

Thanks! I love the look of this tire. Toyo is of course a great tire and have an awesome sidewall tread, but they are so damn expensive! lol I typically push the limits on wearing down MT's because it sure is painful to buy a new set. I might be doing Crown King next week as long as my jeep buddy c...

Re: Cooper or Maxxis?

Those look good. Ya know I never run my tires down to the wear bars, but I'm at 12/32nd and pretty sure the Toyo's say 11/32nd is the end of the shelf life on them. I think I'm going to run this set straight into the ground. I really just don't want to buy tires and wear them out over the winter be...

Is it really much cheaper after you factor in the cost of the car/insurance etc?
I’ve been looking for something. Depending on car, it’s close to a wash. But saves miles on the truck to help keep it around. I just can’t stand any semi-reasonable car on the recent market.
