Re: Power Wagon Picture Thread

I decided Mule was onto something good, so I killed my fuel pump at the gas station an hour ago. This is really fun dude, good idea!

Re: Hardwired Lockers with OEM Knob

You could hardwire the smart bar but I’m almost sure it would be internal splicing, so you’d pull the housing like in Mike’s pic, drill a new hole into the housing and splice the hardwire wires through the new hole to those wires inside. The third wire is the sensor wire, correct. The mechanism is a...

Re: 2014+ Water Free Intake Ideas

The biggest items in reality are that you run a good air filter and you make sure your axle seals get replaced right away if they’re leaking. I run a Wix filter and have basically pressure washed it directly through river crossings with a gaping hole in my air box for my shock towers. Water just run...

Re: Air Box Hole Help

Ha I just left mine open. More airflow. My Wix filter takes care of water ingress. Hit a creek crossing going 55 and pressure washed the engine compartment, pulled the filter on the other side and it was dripping with water but did not soak any in. Beat it on the bumper and put it back in! You could...

Re: Quick question on tire pressures

I was lucky enough to have the tire tech not only ignore my instructions of 40/35psi with the new tires, but also ignore MFG spec of max 50psi, when he inflated mine to 65/80. How thoughtful of him. They even balanced three out of four wheels, too!

Re: PW model question

Tradesman, SLT and Laramie were the three trims for PW’s during 2013. Tradesman is the base model. KBB likely has poor info, which is almost universal regarding the PW platform.

Re: Front axle breather location

Evaluate vent is an interesting one, forgot about that entirely. Interesting because the fuel tank gets warm form running with the bypass fuel running a circuit through the engine, you could definitely suck water in due to the fuel cooling and contracting.

Re: 2016 Power Wagon and new tires and rims.

Stock wheels rub a touch, wheels with +18-25 will clear everything the best like Reloader said but that’s a big expense to prevent a little rubbing if you’re not wanting new wheels. You need to do a little trimming no matter what wheels you do to run 37’s, for sure the plastic fender liner needs som...

Re: 2016 Power Wagon and new tires and rims.

37x12.5R17 will work on stock rims, no new parts needs. Will get some run on swaybar and radius arm but very minimal. 37x13.5R17 would be best done with new wheels

Re: Front axle breather location

Anyone know where the breather for the trans is? The older dodges it was inside the bellhousing and you’d have to pull the trans to add a vent hose, is the vent in the same spot on the new trucks?

Re: 35" tire for those of us that tow?

The stock PW wheels are just good quality wheels, but they aren’t special. The original wheels that were forged Alcoa’s are the unicorns but those were only made for the first few years. Discount Tire has their own chart of tire/wheel mates that they follow. The Hutchinson’s are unique in that they’...

Re: 35" tire for those of us that tow?

1. Stock PW wheels do not have a beadlock. They’re the same as any other wheel. They have a safety lip like any wheel. 2. Discount Tire ignores manufacturers spec and will install a 12.5” wide tire on an 8” wheel. They’re putting 37x12.5r17’s on my 8” wheels on Monday. 3. 3200-ish capacity is good

Re: Herdina 4wd trial in Arches------any info

I believe we took that trail last year when they were doing construction at the end of Arches. We could take that route or take the road. That was a fun route, easy, some rough sections but it was not technical or sketchy at all, mostly sand wash or packed dirt. There were some cool dinosaur tracks ...
