Re: 2014-17 tire size consensus

That looks fantastic!, Can you give more details about the leveling kit you used? And what kind of height did it give you?

Re: Frustrated with my Dealer

So, they installed new brakes on all 4 corners. Replaced the tires with a set of the Goodyear Wranglers off of a 2017 they had on there lot, finally got the alignment correct, no more pull. the lean is down to 1/4 of an inch and they flipped the bill for everything. It drives and handles great!! Too...

Re: Frustrated with my Dealer

I haven't tried that pressure, still don't have it back yet. They said they were going to put different tires on it and drive it. They still haven't done that yet. About to get snowed on here all weekend. I would really like to drive it. I said put the tires on it deliver it and if it's still not ri...

Re: Frustrated with my Dealer

They are Cooper Discover with 75 Percent left on them, I spun the bearings while it was on the hoist and they felt good. I failed to take my temp gun with me to check for variation in temp on wheels hubs and rotors. Rear Rotors and calipers were replaced and new pads and sliders were installed on th...

Re: Frustrated with my Dealer

Just got off the phone with them....they are saying as the tires heat up and break 62psi it is at that point starts pulling. They said it does the same thing after tire rotation also. They told me it is a tire issue....I said nah I don't buy that... they also said the rear axle thrust spec is .30. F...

Re: Frustrated with my Dealer

I tried the tire pressure 2 different times with the same results. And the truck is completely empty as far as weight throwing it off. Do you know what the thrust angle should be? My concern is that something could have shifted or something could be twisted on the truck. Only thinking that way due t...

Re: Frustrated with my Dealer

I know exactly what you are saying, the one tool I don't have in the shop is an alignment rack. I have however aligned many Civilian Power Wagons with a chalk line and achieved greater results than most modern alignment techs can do. It has been really hard for me to let these guys at my truck, it i...

Re: Frustrated with my Dealer

Those were my same thoughts, I have a ton of mechanical experience. And I am really close to telling them to give it to me and I will fix it. Since buying it I have put 125 miles on it. My hopes were that someone has fought this same condition.

Re: Frustrated with my Dealer

As Far as alignment it has a quite dramatic pull to the right. Only after driving roughly 10 miles as you first start out it is slight but not terrible. Here is the alignment spec sheet they sent with the truck. See what you all think.

Frustrated with my Dealer

So i have owned my 2012 Power Wagon for roughly two weeks, 9 of those days its been back at the Dealership. Brakes were hung up on the rear, it leaned horribly to the right, and the alignment was awful. They have brought it back to me 3 times and it has went back 3 times. The lean which was 1 1/4 in...

Re: Tuner Questions

On My 2012 non PW when you went to check the Tire Pressure after turning it off it was just a blank read out for Tire Pressure. Once I get my truck back from the dealer I will install it in my PW. And see what all it can do.

Re: Tuner Questions

I Have a Hemi Plus GT from BullyDog that I had in a 2012 that was not a Power Wagon. It seemed to work well I could turn off the TPMS but not adjust it. Considering installing it into my Power Wagon to see how this truck would react to it. I did notice a slight mileage increase in the old truck, I w...

Re: New control arms and tires!!

Ok, this makes more sense. As far as the lean I have the same lean front and rear, I have looked into several aftermarket control arms and fairly positive I will swap them out to allow clearance for a larger tire. I really want to correct the lean. I have sat and stared at it pondering how goofy it ...

Re: New control arms and tires!!

In reference to your control arms an my 2012, which I believe to have all stock components in, the lower arms are tubular, the uppers are a squared or rectangular arm. I looked at both a 2009 Standard cab Power Wagon and a 2016 Power Wagon and both had very similar appearing arms. Both of those were...

Have a tad bit of rubbing (expected) on upper and lower arms at full lock. These are the quietest MTs I've heard. Almost no road noise. Will report off road traction when ...

I would never sell a Power Wagon, just park it for a while until you miss it and then....get another one.
