Re: Powerwagon's best model year 2005-2020?

Best year(s) is the early 3G Power Wagon, 2006-2008. 2005 was the prototype with all the teething problems. -06 to 08 were Heavy Duty. Cast iron engine blocks and NO MDS system. Power Wagon design went downhill after DaimlerChrysler sold itself off to Fiat in the Obama economy. Just between you and...

Re: A major wheel vendor would like some input

There's a lot of flexibility for wheel offsets whether you're running 37's or 40's. +30mm to +12mm for 37's and -10mm to -35mm for 40's. My pick would be +18mm for 37's and -25mm for 40's.

Re: Ford Tremor

I just drove the Tremor with the 7.3L and I’ll say this, it’s one hell of a truck. The ride quality is on par with my Power Wagon, the transmission shifts are smooth, and it feels like the the truck has plenty of power. I just can’t get past the $71,000 sticker price. Ford is going to sell a lot of...

These things have just been a huge surprise. Feels like cheating honestly.
Cheating performance wise or not really the size marked on the side? Putting 38's on Ram trucks is pretty well known at this point. I think Don was running 38's in 2015.

Re: THE BIGGEST TIRE YOU CAN FIT

There’s about a $4-5,000 difference in cost of entry between 39’s and 40’s just in flares and wheels, and a $5,000 difference in vehicle value when you do AEV flares; that would be more but you’re already doing some trimming to fit 39’s so it’s not like it’s going to stay all pretty and new. It’s a...

Re: THE BIGGEST TIRE YOU CAN FIT

So after all of that the answer is still 37s if you don't want to cut anything. I don't think I'd go to the trouble of 39s, either stick with 37s or step up to 40s. :lol: There is no trouble with 39's though. I can use my existing wheel. I could use stock wheels. I chose the BFG because it's the bi...

Re: Welding Axle Tubes

My understanding is most of the PW tubes spin when the axle bottoms out against the bump stops. The order I went was truss, hydro, gears. I don't think you'll ever be sorry if you truss the front end.

Re: Overland 1.5 inch Spring w/King OEM 2.5 Shock

If I were starting over today the first mods I'd do would be the rear track bar and hydro assist. The front end on the '14+ trucks don't just up and wear out and they definitely last longer with hydro. I don't see the benefit of changing the tierod unless it is damaged.
