Re: New to Board - I'm a steel fabricator

It took them a few days to get back to me as their main business is other welding projects in that part of CO. Once they got in touch, I set up a time with the owner and drove out to have them install the bumper. They did a really nice job, and I am very pleased with my bumper. I did a write up on m...

Re: Diff Protection AAM 10.5/9.25

I have a 2012 with front and rear Purple Cranium guards. I also have a Thuren track bar, and there are no issues with fit. The rear guard really does not look like it will do much for peeling the diff when it hits. It really looks to help out with collisions with rocks etc. I don't really know of an...

Re: What did you do to your PW this week?

I finally fixed my driver headlight that was starting to look like an aquarium with all the condensation collecting inside. I finally broke down and took it out, found a leak on the top of the light housing and sealed it generously with silicone. Now the condensation is gone! Not sexy but it really ...

Re: 2012 New to Me!

They started by removing the bumper and taking the bolts out of the winch cradle. There are 2, shim plates that go inside between the frame and winch cradles. Once they were in, they lined up the holes and traced the outline for the bumper onto the front fender liners. They removed the bumper and tr...

Re: 2012 New to Me!

I was able to make a trip to High Country Customs where I met with Ryan (the owner) and one of his employees, Thomas who put on the new bumper. They did a great job and fit me in even though the shop was officially closed for the holidays. I was going to head up last week, but we could not make it w...

Re: Towing 8K lb trailer, Air Bags w/Cradles or WDH?

I run a trailer that is 7600lbs loaded, and I got the Airlifts with the internal bumpers. I don't need them to lift much when I use my Andersen wd hitch, but they level the truck and give me a pretty nice ride. I had too much air pressure at first, but now 17-18 psi does the trick when my camper is ...

Re: Kinzer bumper- now from HCC off-road

I am headed out to Gypsum this Friday to pick up my new bumper from HCC, and I hope to have some photos to share soon afterwards. I always liked the look of this bumper on some of the trucks on the forum, so I was excited to hear they were available again. Can't wait for Friday!

Re: 2012 vs 2019

I have a 2012 and I think about the same thing sometime. However, I really don't care for some of the overboard technology stuff they put in the new ones. I have been really happy with my rig, and I hope to have it for a long time. Also, the new ones have that crappy dial shift knob, and I hated tha...

Re: 04Ram2500Hemi's Build - 2012 Power Wagon

Those look good. How do they feel on the road? I have the STT Pros and they have been doing great. I just got back from Moab last week, and I did Poison Spyder trail. The tires were great. I am becoming a fan of Cooper tires.

Re: I still like this truck.

I used to work on towers a bit with Great Plains Tower out of ND. We built some out here and lots of them up in that part of the country. Didn't have a power wagon then. Wish I did to get to some of the sites.

If you switch to Amsoil, the recommended fluids are as follows: Engine Signature Series 0W40 Front and Rear Diffs Severe Gear 75W90 Transmission and T-Case Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF (Signature Series or OE) I did some oil testing on mine and my buddies Toyota.

A few of the guys here have bought some stuff and lots of them run Amsoil. Do some research and you will see t...

Re: New

I had a 2015, 1500 that had the shifter knob, and I hated it. I was very pleased to be in the PW with the normal shift handle. It is sad to see Ram move to that for their HD trucks. It never worked well for me especially off road.

I also got sick of the squat when towing the camper, so I put on some Airlift Loadlifter 5000 ultimates with the internal...
