Re: 4WD shift light comes on while driving

I had this issue once or twice. I threw it in 4w and back out. Never happened again.

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 ...

Re: 2018 PW Front Bumper

To heck with front park sensors. I reverse park almost everywhere I go anyway. My rear park sensors have been dead for a while, I never rely on them so I doubt I'll ever try too hard to get them fixed. Back-up camera is the bees knees, 3G owners get your salt ready to throw. Exactly. I reverse park...

Re: 2018 PW Front Bumper

not integrating the front parking sensors is a tad lazy But who has integrated it? Not even AEV has. Those front parking sensors suck anyway. Go off in the rain and offroad at unusual times.

Na, I'm kinda done waiting. Thuren bumper is already paid for and I pick up the 14th. Only decision left is bars or no bars and what type.

Re: 2018 PW Front Bumper

The center is narrow so the bull bar looks a little weird. Maybe consider tying in the outers. Yeah, I'm gonna look into that when I talk to a fab guy. Marcus's orginal bar design would work well with a Thuren Bumper. He never finished those ends, but there is one laying in my shed. Nice and tight....

I tried. Not worth his time, lol. And I totally don't blame him. But i did just this morning find someone who did what I'm thinking.

I pick up my Thuren bumper in 2 weeks. I'm debating having a pushbar of some kind added before I have it powdercoated.

Here's an update: Don is make custom outers for my bumper to fit the AEV flares, they will hopefully be done in a few weeks. If you're considering AEV flares but are reluctant because there aren't any bumper options aside from AEV, call Thuren. When we talked a few weeks ago he said he was probably...
