Re: 2020 Power Wagon - Spied

Andre says he will ask the engineers when they meet in 6-7 weeks for a media test drive session of some sort. So stay tuned.

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.

Re: 2020 Power Wagon - Spied

Some highlights from the video; 1. Very cool winch stuff, Xenon, with synthetic and a modern hook, easier remote hook up, and a place to wrap line and hook for storage. 2. Over 50:1 crawl with new Transmission, 50% improvement 3. LED lights 4. 7MM lift on front which should help with 35s rubbing and...

Looks like crawl Ratio is jumping to 50+ if it has the 8 speed.
The TFL guys did not give it live but they mentioned it was a big jump since with the 8 speed they have a much lower first gear. Some good stuff for sure. Now about those tires....

Re: Alpine Loop - Colorado Camping

I cannot wait to try it in a PW, it was open last year when I was around but the freaking Dura Trash tires kept going flat and we went home early after I used up all the tire plugs at the gas station. I was so pissed. Then again, I will live there some day so maybe it does not matter :cheers:

Re: Alpine Loop - Colorado Camping

I will be their for the 4th for sure 3-7. But I will be there at other times planning, and eventually building a road. Black Bear should be scary but doable. Poughkipsee is the only really difficult trail. Most are fine for PW. Old Mule to Mine trails can get scary. However, that being said, because...

Re: Front Diff Blow Up

Front end of a Chevy 4x4 is considered throw away and replace before going off road, as well as engagement system. Power Wagon is in its own class here as well. Hopefully the idiotic front end issues have been corrected in 17, time will tell. Everyone is having some MDS problems with valves unfortun...

Re: Locker Bypass Rebirth

Man, already getting tired of the hassles on my 2018. What a bad design. The rear seems to rarely be an issue, but its like pulling teeth for the front now. And when I need to idle up a steep, icy hill to do a recovery I can't drive 2 miles to get it engaged.

Re: The Power Wagon Curse

Exactly, and its non stop. The neighbors Tundra fell apart plowing yesterday and wedged sideways on a hill. Had to bust out the snatch block on that one. He went and bought a new Tundra last night. Hoping the electronic LSD gizmo and IFS will do it. Says somewhere he saw the Tundra rated #4 best plo...

Re: The Power Wagon Curse

I just want to say as a Noob with only a year in a PW, these things are so awesome in the Snow. I attribute that to a lot of things, none seem particularly ground breaking on there own. Ram engineers seem to have really tuned things nicely. 1. Ground Clearance ( Of course) 2. 35's ( ok so Ram Cheape...

Re: The Power Wagon Curse

Oh my god, another day. I head up and road is clogged with AWD vehicles( including Telemundo TV or what ever) and regular pick ups. I cleared my driveway with the snow blower but a rear locker now BARELY gets you in and out of the neighborhood. We have to get the county going, or snow plow fixed, or...

Everyone's holiday guests wanted to bail out before the next two monster storms and I had to tow them out of our neighborhood. Everyone in town is like " oooh, mountains look pretty let...

Nutty thing is, my 1996 Montero has a drain plug, lol imagine that.( all Monteros did) To boot you don't even have to go that far, it has a hatch under the cargo area to access the fuel pump. Now was that so hard?
