Re: Fed up!!! (More dura trash)

Dick Cepek. Toughest tire I’ve ever owned.
They may be made by cooper. But they make them to different standards.

Re: Extreme Country or Fun country

Well. After 2 days of testing I have to say that these tires are really good. A tad bit noisier than stock. But the real difference is how the truck handles. I can’t believe how terrible the stock tires are. It’s incredible. Night and day. What a difference.

Re: 2018 Power Wagon Brake Issues

Tried mine out last night. In reverse, low range. Hard to stop. But that’s a lot of torque. Plus you’ve got the elevated idle in low range. I’m sure they are all the same.

Is anyone else receiving private messages from some guy half way across the country that “loves” your powerwagon. And wants to buy it? Total scam :angry:

Re: Max tire size

So what did the Ave procal do for that. Just to dial in the tire size so it can update the speedo? Or does it update shift points and so on?

Extreme Country or Fun country

:cash: So one of my duratracs was leaking from the sidewall. No marks or gouges. Unrepairable I’m told. I’m sick of these junk duratracs. Thinking of Dick Cepek. I had fun country on my last truck and loved them. But am torn between them or the extreme country. Anybody have any experience with the e...

Max tire size

First off I want to apologize for a topic I’m sure has been beat to death. I woke up to a flat front tire. Took it in to get fixed and there is a hole in the sidewall that is unrepairable. 15k Km. You can’t even see the hole. Anyways I’ve heard nothing good about these duratracs. 90% of my driving i...

Trans shift update

Had the two recalls don’t to my ,17 powerwagon. I’ve read that there’s negative comments about the reflash, so I was reluctant. But I love what they’ve done. Downshifts a lot better than it used to. You can really feel it. Not sure what’s not to like?

Re: Horn Delay

I agree the horn in these trucks are horrible. They have a delay and it is impossible to just give someone a quick toot. It sounds for like a second, minimum.

Front and rear diff guards

I know this has been discussed to depth. I just want to make sure. The consensus is Thuren diff cov in the front and purple cranium in the rear. Plus there was a guy selling skid plates but don’t recall what for

Thanks in advance boys. Appreciate it.

Re: Using the winch in the winter.

Just a flap of rubber covering the top works great. Easy to flip up and use. Folds down after use.

Two tone paint powerwagon

I am in love with what some of the Chevy dealerships are doing this year by selling with two tone paint. Just like the 70’s and 80’s. I had a 81 Chevy Sierra grande with black and chrome illusion fire in between. My 17 people is black. Has any one seen any cool two tones to add to a black pw. I migh...

Re: White lettering on tires

I was thinking the same on the white being throughout. I Hate wasting money but I hate whitewalls even more. So I guess I’ll get the tire shop to remove and remount. As for the red. I’m not sold on that. Thinking it will be a short lived fad. Thanks guys

White lettering on tires

:vomit: I don’t know how other people feel but the white lettering is kinda dated in my part of the world. Has anyone used a product to get rid of the white or am I gonna have to go to the tire shop to have them Installed inside out.
Thanks in advance

Re: Portable Air Compressor

Ya, they are more meant for heavy duty applications. You can run a 3/4” air impact all day if you want. I use it for changing edges on dozers and loaders in the field. Doesn’t miss a beat

Very slippery though. I added black sandpaper tape. That fixed that problem. Unfortunately when you slide out of the s...
