Re: 2020 Power Wagon - Spied

I have not wheeled mine enough, but have blasted around the San Juans a bit. I can do most tight switch backs with out backing up. Significantly better then my Titan did. I was actually pleasantly surprised. A Rubicon or a Gladiator would definitely be easier on tight mountain trails. But I would no...

Re: Swing tailgate

I like em. TFL video from the Chicago Auto show showed Roman Actually hanging on the long one. VERY sturdy. Also the engineer guy walks in and out of the bed blind which is cool.

Re: Locker Bypass / Locker Engagement question

Not really sure what a limit should be. I probably would not try over 15mph. I have seen other makes allow engagement up to that speed. I am sure as speed goes up so do potential stresses of things aligning by a good measure. I cant wait to get mine installed so I can use them with high range on the...

Thanks for posting that. Shows where the 17+ graphics inspiration came from. Now that I see it, the new version looks MUCH cleaner.

Re: 2020 Power Wagon - Spied

Glad I still own my 05. I don't like anything about these newer gen PW's. They have lost their "off road beast" appeal IMO The extra horsepower and TORQUE doesn’t appeal to you? :poke: Or the improved reliability? Or lack of Drug Lord trim and dragon vomit graphics?(as FCA puts it) Or 360 cameras? ...

Re: Scuffing sound on take off with BFG KO2s?

I live off road, and while the high pressure is rougher on road, once I get to my dirt road it was brutal.

Re: Scuffing sound on take off with BFG KO2s?

You CAN run more pressure in a good tire with out the tire falling apart like the Dura Trash. However for such a brutal ride off-road why would you?

Wow, that's some high air pressure unless you are towing a space shuttle. Try 35-40PSI ranges.

Mine never did that, but had a lot off tapping new. That has gone away. Seems like these engines run smoother after some break in.

Re: Mojave edition.

When my Dura Trash sidewall blew destroying a rim the rim repair place really wanted to black out the machine face. I guess black out is still all the rage. I am not a chrome guy and the "Drug Dealer" era of Power Wagons did not interest me. But these rims with the machined face really look great to...

Re: Dude I Love my Ride Video

Roman could hardly contain himself. But it does make a valid point that a PW is not for everyone. Too many want a cushy ride, not to have to climb, better gas mileage, less of a loan payment, ect. And while its "cool" to everyone, its really for a certain personality.

Re: Tire Feedback

I have never used a snow tire specifically, and have never seen the need. I am not someone who wants to change tires 2x a year to drive in some snow. Mud Terrains and All Terrains do plenty well. Granted they have gotten better, but I lived at 11,200' (Saints John) back in 1992 and have driven with ...

Re: Tire Feedback

The KM 3 is out standing in the snow. Best snow tire I have ever had. We have had many deep snows and solid ice events in my neighborhood, at times the PW is the only one to make it out. I also drove to Taos in a huge storm, never felt bad at all.

How many miles do you have on your KM3's? How do you think they are holding up tread wear wise with such a heavy truck? I have a set coming in 37s.
