Re: New Equipment

Have you ever seen anyone offer the 2012 Red/Black decals in a different color? I was wanting to replace all the red on my 2012 with Blue logos. I was going to go for a "thin blue line" theme with my black truck. I talked to a body wrap place and they were going to look for similar fonts etc. Let me...

Re: Recovery gear questions!

Good to hear some more tanker stories. I spent my time as a hatch plug in my M1A1 back years ago. I miss those beasts, but they are a bear to get out when you manage to get one stuck!

Re: Tires

I grew up in North Dakota and started my driving at 14 with a 2 wheel drive F150. It stays cold and icy there pretty much all winter. That being said, I run 285 70 17 Duratracs on my 2012 and they seem to work very well in the snow. I tested them during elk hunting in the mountains of Colorado where...

Re: Oil help?!

I like the Amsoil brand, so I became a dealer after I changed my diff fluid. Let me know if you want to get some, and I can get you hooked up. They seem to make quality products and I like those types of things, so now I can help other guys out with oil and associated stuff. I am slowly switching al...

Re: 2012 New to Me!

They bolt to the same holes on the body as normal steps. This one had them on it when I got it. I was thinking about an S&B too....just waiting on some more funds. Do you think it is worth putting one on? Some of the other posts said they decrease low end torque. I had a K&N on my 1/2 ton and it see...

Re: My extreme snow run

Sweet! I am waiting for us to get snow here. Then I want to test out my chains! I got to do some snow driving during hunting season, but it has been dry since then. Looks like fun!

Re: 2012 New to Me!

It is a Superflow MV-89G. It was $129 and it seems to work very well. It takes about 20 minutes total for me to air up all four tires from about 25psi to 60psi. I wanted to try it before dumping a ton of money on another brand. There is one just like it that is silver in color that got good reviews,...

Re: 2012 New to Me!

I read a bunch of the posts on the forum about differentials, fluids, covers, etc. so I decided to switch over to Amsoil 75W90 in the front and 75W110 in the rear. I also added some filter mags in each. I cleaned off a bunch of metal goop from the front and rear locker magnets, and it seemed to spee...

2012 New to Me!

Bought my 2012 Power Wagon in September after looking for about a year. It only had 19K miles and it was in very nice shape. I had to drive about 10 hours to Missouri to pick it up. I traded a 2015 Ram 1500 because I had talked myself out of getting a Power Wagon 2 years prior. Then, I could not jus...

Re: Any Colorado run interests?

Here is a photo from our elk hunting. No elk, but did some good wheelin'. This was the end of the trail on Bears Ears Peak. I went down the trail on the back side of this the next morning and got stuck coming back up. Good thing for the winch. The other trucks in our group waited on the top of the t...

Re: Any Colorado run interests?

Let me know if you guys plan to get together. I am up in Loveland, and I would like to do some wheelin with some other PW owners. Did some decent trails this year when I was hunting. Just changed my diff fluids on front and back this weekend. I am waiting for some diff guards that I ordered this wee...

Re: 2012 or 2017??

Did you end up making a decision? I was debating getting one of the new 2017 wagons, or picking up one of the older ones with the 5.7. I ended up finding a used 2012 with 19K, and I love it. I liked the fact that the payload was about 450lbs more than the 2017. I had a 2015 1500 and the payload on t...

Re: Steering Braces

I haven't noticed any "slop"in my steering or suspension yet, but mine only has 21,000 miles on it. That being said, without needing anything right now, would this be the first suspension/front end upgrade to add? I have been reading about all of the other problems including ball joints, track bars,...

Re: Power Wagon Picture Thread

Here is a photo from this Sunday. Took the wife and kids out to do some wheelin' near home. It was a beautiful day and I dinged my front diff for the first time. To top it off, I ended up shooting a deer at my buddy ranch right at sundown. Got some blood mixed with the dust for the first time. Hopef...

Pulled the Trigger....2012 PW

I finally pulled the trigger on a new to me/used 2012 PW! I have been scouring the internet and researching since last hunting season about the trucks, and I found this 2012 in Missouri. I live in Colorado, and the Carfax showed that it was originally from Colorado. The skid plates were clean, locke...
