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.

Re: Diff and Transfer Case Oil Recommendations

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. He ran the Signature Series for 23,60...

Re: Diff and Transfer Case Oil Recommendations

Amsoil is what I would recommend for both. I can get you set up with both diff fluid and t-case fluid. Mine have been doing great since I switched. Send me a pm if you would like some info. A few of the guys here have bought some stuff and lots of them run Amsoil. Do some research and you will see t...

I have Cooper STT Pros in 315/70R17 and I was able to fit one in the spare spot no problem.

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.

Re: 2012 New to Me!

Used a Hypertech speedometer calibrator to adjust for tire size, and I ended up getting better performance and mileage. The truck feels just like it did prior to the tire change. I also got sick of the squat when towing the camper, so I put on some Airlift Loadlifter 5000 ultimates with the internal...

Re: New from nevada

I am partial to that year PW myself. Welcome to the forum. I started 2 years ago with a black 2012, and I have been steadily making improvements over time. These things are addictive, but they are well worth the wait. I wanted one for a long time, and I kept talking myself out of it. Now I am having...

Re: 2012 New to Me!

I had to remove my sliders as the Aluminess body mounting system did not work well. They sent me some parts to attempt a fix, but it would still be body mounted. I have decided against that, so I am going to have the Aluminess sliders modified and mounted to the body in a similar fashion to the Whit...

Re: Engine Oil Temperature

I have a 2012 with a 5.7 hemi, and I noticed my temps run high especially when towing in the summer over the Rockies where I live. When I am towing in the mountains, I regularly run oil temps around 220F. I have gone up to 269F when running the "Ike Guantlet" up to the Eisenhower tunnel. I was nervo...

Re: Sliders

I have since talked to the guys at Aluminess and they agreed to send me a kit they made to address this issue. Hopefully, it will address the issue, and I can get the sliders stop rattling. I will keep you posted.
