Re: Recovery kits

Dakota Todd on the facebook pages has one. I'd ask him. I've seen it in person and it's decent. But I'd research it more.

Re: Front Diff Blow Up

Rebuilding a 231/241/271 takes an hour or less. All of the parts come out and new parts just drop in. Taking out the old case is the hardest part of the job. They are also very cheap used. What actually seized in the front end? You think a dealership still knows how to do that? They are parts swapp...

What do you need the shocks for? How do you use your truck? Are you just doing it for length for the level?

Re: 2020 Power Wagon - Spied

I will say, I agree with comments about the 6.4 feeling gutless or lethargic. The 5.7 in my 1500 felt very sporty and responsive. And it only had 3.92 gears. The 6.4 in the PW works. But it feels like Ram designed the engine around the idea that a construction worker or a landscaper was just going ...
