Re: power wagon went onto it's lid at Uwharrie

I have too much other stuff going on in my life to take on a project like this. I would cut my losses and start anew.

Re: Diff guards

I ordered my White Knuckle Sliders without their logo. It might be an option with the diff guard, if you call.

It is $1040 for the thicker version before you even add powdercoat and shipping:http://www.white-knuckleoffroad.com/ram2014-2017.html

Re: What Thickness of sliders?

Mine took about six weeks total. Then again, they had a problem with their powder coater and they had to ship all the way to eastern Tennessee.

From this website (steel, not aluminum, but the principles should hold true): http://www.atcgroup.com.au/customcastingforging/thedifferencebetweencastingforging.aspx Forged steel is generally stronger and more reliable than castings and plate steel due to the fact that the grain flows of the steel a...

Re: Dodge Ram Power Wagon Global Production Numbers 2005-201

Thanks for updating. It was cool to find out that I have 1 of 177 2017 Laramies in the US market. My previous 2007 was 1 of 431.

Close all social media accounts and don't watch / read the news. That will get rid of most of your exposure.

I know the 2012 and 2017 are vastly different inside and underneath. That being said, I wouldn't jump into a new payment until the new bodystyle comes out in 2020.

Re: Diesel Power Wagon... Again..

I tried to get a 2014 Power Wagon but as everyone remembers, there was a delay in manufacturing that year. I bought a 2014 Cummins instead with the intent on eventually building a diesel Power Wagon (not that there really is such a thing). I had a series of issues, all emissions related. They cleane...

I have always heard the wheel should be half the diameter of the tire for the best compromise.

Re: 17 Power Wagon steer issue

I always assumed it is because the front tires don't stay flat on the pavement as you turn the steering. The weight of the front in is now on the edges of the tires. I believe this is what causes the scrubbing sound you refer to. If you turn your steering wheel (either direction) until it stops, put...

Re: Diesel Power Wagon... Again..

I am sure a lot of people love the idea. The calling gets much smaller once you factor in who can actually afford it. The diesel option (~$6,500) plus the Power Wagon option (~$6,500) makes the Diesel Power Wagon demographic pretty small from a business perspective.

Re: Duratracs have to go, need options.

The KO2 is available in size 315/70R17/E. This is the same type and size as the new Raptor but with a higher load range: Part Number 08806. It is 34.4" tall and 12.7" wide. It is also approved for our stock wheel width if 8 inches. This is probably the tire I will go with when the time comes.

Re: Duratracs have to go, need options.

I try to be objective about OEM parts and stay out of most of the bashing of manufacture's designs. When I saw several forum members bashing the Duratracs, I took it as more of the same. I did look at a lot of reviews and found a mixture of good and bad. That all changed today. I pulled into a comme...
