Re: Maximum Steel

My 16 Laramie PW is Maximum Steel. Looks really nice when it's clean. I get a lot of compliments on it. I think the flake looks blue and gives the truck a blue hue in the sun but my wife says it's charcoal gray. I think she just likes to argue. I've only seen a couple 1500's around Colorado in this ...

Re: 2018 Power Wagon Brake Issues

Mine is a '16. I have gone off on a rant before on here. Sorry. I now have a little over 62k miles on it. The brakes have been the worst I have ever had on any vehicle ever. Even a 1968 AMC. If I am sitting at a stop I can easily push the peddle to the floor. I have bled them several times. I've hea...

Re: Tonneau Cover Recommendation

I went with the diamondback. They have two different guage metal. I thought getting the heavey guage would mean it would last longer and it may outlast the truck, but holy crap is it heavy! Unless you plan to put atv's or something on top, I would go with the lighter version. My dad has the lighter ...

Re: WK Sliders - To diamond plate or not?

I chose the thicker walled tubing, diamond plate & factory powder coating. They work great for steps. You get used to them being narrow vs a real step. I've got over 53,000 miles on mine and would do it the same again. A little bit of brown (rust?) discoloration around the bolts that are holding dow...

Re: Ever get in a shoot out with terrorists and need to launch your rocket pack?

Made me cringe! Who pulls out their pistol and puts their hand over the end of the barrel. I stopped watching there.

Re: 2018 Power Wagon Brake Issues

Mine has done this since day 1. It's a 16 and I have had more than 1 panic stop in Denver shit traffic and in the mountains where I wasnt sure I was going to stop. To the floor! I've had several dealers look at it an all they did was visual inspection and said all is good. B.S. I told them to drive ...

Re: Max tire size

I have a 2016 Laramie with GY Duratrac 35/12.50r17 E rated on stock wheels and there is no rub. I can even fit my tire chains. I think both the Duratrac & BFG's run smaller than their indicated size and are more like 34's when they are new. I believe some of the manufacturers are actually 35" like m...

Re: Auto Shipping

I just had my wife's car shipped from Las Vegas to Denver for $495 on open trailer. The company was JP Auto Transport. The Salesperson was Gerald Nicolas. His # 954-510-9251. Everything worked great. They are based out of Florida. I had to give them a credit card for $95 upfront and paid the drive t...

Thank you fbenross. I've never paid for any extended warranty before and probably never will on anything else. I hope to take my grand kids hunting/fishing in it in 20 or 30 years. There are so many parts and electric components, we decided to do it this one time. Your scout is beautiful! Great job!...

I ordered the DB HD with Line-x & Cross bin from truckcandy. Thank you for your replies. Now I'm waiting for it to ship. Still waiting on WK Sliders to ship. Good things come to those who wait... I guess... LOL.

Thank you gma3748! I think based on the feedback received and online reviews, I will go ahead with Diamondback HD w/Line-X. Did you order directly from Diamondback or a local store?

Re: Which Bed Cover

Thank you Timgco, I like the looks of the MX4 being more low profile. I just checked out their website. Looks like it would save some $$$ too. Their Bakbox looks a little cheesy to me. I will put it on my list to check out.

I am about 4 miles or so west of Southlands near Smokey Hill & Himalaya.

Subscribed! I am very interested but not sure if the dates work. I will watch the thread and as we get closer, I will jump in if I'm able. I also see the Overland Expo is the following weekend in Flag Staff (May 12th-14th). Man, if I could get two weeks off in a row! :idea: That's would be AWESOME!
