Re: I put my order in

so does the dual alternators really make a difference? looking for an opinion from the experience side, not theory.

Re: Traction control on 2011?

TC=Total Crap. Be glad you don't have it. If the main roads are in bad shape you should be driving slower anyway.

I've had (2) PW's, one with TC and one without. The 05' PW was awesome without TC.

I wish you could order this tradesman exterior with the laramie interior.
i second this for all HD pickups. i love my longhorn interior, but too much chrome on the exterior.

Re: Lawn mower follies....

i was told by a mechanic not to use fuel stabilizer for the winter but to run aircraft grade fuel through for the winter.

and yes......ethanol rots rubber quick so make sure you have a fuel filter on the inlet side of the carb.

Re: Unfortunately I need to sell my PW

i think the price is too high. it's an 06' and probably has some good miles. it may be a preferred year of pw....like my 05' was, but alot of people don't look at it that way except the die hards.
