Re: 2020 Power Wagon - Spied

I really wonder if the reason why they have not taken the upgrades to the PW seriously is: They really don't want to take away from the Jeep line, as it really outsells the PW.

Re: 2020 Power Wagon - Spied

If it's just some cosmetic BS I'm not going to get worked up about trading. Not a big fan of all that plastic. It always fades/chalks with age....always.

Same crap tires. That's at least a $1200 loss right there to throw them away and replace with something with a sidewall.

Re: 6.4 Burning Oil

I'd just let the dealer chart the oil use like they want to and see where it goes from there.

My 16 has around 35K on it and doesn't burn any oil.

Re: Perfect world PW

Dump the CAD.

Ability to kill all traction control in 4WD.

Bring back 4:56 gearing.

Redesign the front of the truck to give better off road vision. The 3G trucks were much better with regards to this. Won't happen though.

Get rid of the Duracraps.

Re: Fed up!!! (More dura trash)

I have said this before, I think the manufacturers tires that are on many new vehicles are either made to a different standard or they are blems that they buy in LARGE quantities to get huge discounts. Vehicles that we bought new that had tire problems of one sort or another & they only last half a...

Worst truck tire I've ever had. I threw mine in the trash and put on Mickey Thompson ATZ P3s. It's like driving a different truck.

Re: Pro Cal Disaster 2018

Glad you got that fixed.

Those duracraps are the worst tire I've ever had the displeasure of having on any truck I've owned.

Threw them away and put Mickey Thompson ATZ P3's on and those have been great.

What issue do you have with hill descent control? Hill Descent Control does not work at all on the 2018s. Apparently, it is a know issue and is incorporated in the cruise control recall.

Re: Fan stuck on?

I think my 16 6.4 has done it once that I can recall. Quit after a mile. But my 07 5.7 has done it in the mornings once in a while also. Always quits.

Re: Trans Issues - 2016

My 16 has 30K on it now and it runs they way it should,,,now. But that was after an EGR valve, the solenoid pack and having everything reflashed a couple of times. I'm finally happy with the way the trans shifts and no surging.

Re: Trans Issues - 2016

Thanks guys. No, I have not had the recall completed. I wonder if that is why I am having issues. I thought it was for solenoid connections? Not all of the 16 trucks got recalls and yes it was for the connectors. I doubt if that's your problem as it said it would cause the trans to go into limp mod...

What pressure did you run in the Duratracs when they would "carcass roll" on the highway?
65-68. Really didn't matter. Felt like you were driving an unresponsive boat. Night and day difference.

Finally got new tires for the 16.

I had an old thread here last year about tires after a stick went through the sidewall of the OEM Duratrac. I got busy and never got around to buying new ones until now since they still had plenty of life left. Anyway, I ended up with Mickey Thompson ATZ P3's. Can't even describe how much better the...

Re: 2020 Ram 2500 Power Wagon spied

Meh, I'll wait to see it unwrapped. But I was hoping they'd give it some better front end off-road visibility. The big, square front end doesn't let you see anything nearby. The 3G trucks are much better in that respect.
