Re: New appreciation for my truck

I would appreciate a little more if it came with 35’s but hey what’s another $1500. We just took a 3000 mile trip to the smoky mountains instead of my wife’s Durango because of the extra space( and hopes to go wheelin’ it cost a little more in fuel but it was worth the confort. Never no when you ha...

Re: October is expensive truck month, part 2

My Km3s lasted about 42K, better then the Duratrash at 12K, and no flats. The problem I see is if you do a lot of highway as I do they wear down fast, need to go less aggressive tread, and possible harder compound for highway. I am thinking of Nitto Ridge Grapplers next.

Re: 12K up Million Dollar Highway

I have no doubt the 8spd would help. When I was screaming, or lugging at around 35mph at times, I could have made better torque with one additional gear. The thing is I believe my future load will be even a little heavier when I retire with dump trailer and CTL. Might be time to upgrade to a newer P...

12K up Million Dollar Highway

Towed a Compact Track Loader, heavy Takahuchi thing up to my property for the first time. Heaviest load yet for the PW and I must say, it handled it like nothing, no real squat. However, 410HP feels like nothing screaming up those passes at 35MPH! :excited:

Re: Fun in Telluride

I did Black Bear/ Imogene Loop Labor Day weekend, that was a hoot. Spent last few days getting stalled road building project on my land up there moving again. Hopefully can still get it all done before too much snow flys.

Re: 2018 Transmission Failure

I have to admit, if my transmission goes out under 250K or so I would likely never buy a Ram again. Its just not normal on a modern truck.

Re: 2018 Transmission Failure

Isn't the transmission flushed at 100K plus? This is the kind of stuff that scares me on Rams. Mines has done some weird things, but performs normally most of the time.

Re: Do you keep your rain sense wipers on all the time?

I forget mine are on many times, then all the sudden it rains a little and I reach to turn them on and too late. Its pretty rare that mine will fire off randomly for no reason. Wonder if yours has a tuning issue, or like waldo said basically the speed is the sensitivity. I will say bug splatters in ...

Re: PowerSteps

The Raptor comes with a rock ready steps. Not sliders exactly, but I would take em. The cheap nerf bars they have are not appropriate. The PW deserves an innovative rock slider/step. May not be as nice as electrics, but they wont rip off as easy or be expensive to repair.

Its no BS in a full size, I will assure you. Thousands of foot drops and inches away.....Length is not horrible, its more the width.

Re: Drove away from an Accident

The problem with a 2019 is none have been wrecked or worn out yet, so the parts chain is lean compared to prior models. I would not be terribly surprised at a delay on parts. But that means a free rental with free wear and tear, and you can get a truck. WHOO HOOO free car. Thats how I look at it eve...

Re: Radiator Hoses: To Change Or Not?

All that being said, if you ever have major engine work done and have to pull things apart, replace all the stuff. If you need major work on the engine, you probably need belts, hoses, water pump, ect. But with 10 miles a year it may never be a problem for you!

Re: Radiator Hoses: To Change Or Not?

I have 50K in less then 2 years, holy cow! Seriously I don't know what they make modern hoses and belts out of but they freaking last forever these days. Not sure I ever replaced any on my 2005 Nissan Titan at 230K

Black Bear for Labor Day Weekend

Worked on our land a bit, and took a day to do Black Bear, Imogene and then cap off with the Ouray Hot Springs. I must say Black Bear was a snug fit, but we lived. Sorry no pictures, more worried about getting down :excited: Cameras and folding mirrors are definitely helpful.

Transmission Issues

One of the reasons I am so nervous about Rams is the terrible record on Transmissions. Well, yesterday on the way to work I would start out from a stop and eventually the truck would clunk 2x then take 15 seconds to get to 30MPH. It did some of this clunking new and everyone said it would stop after...

Re: 2018 Power Wagon Brake Issues

It finally happened to me. I planned on turning around at the end of a mining road but a huge tree I was going to winch out of the way stopped me. The winch only tried to pull 20 more trees down as it would not pivot. Anyhow, had to do a nasty turn around on the side of the mountain and several time...
