Re: Chrysler Extended warranty

Does anyone know if the lifetime warranty is only for the original owner?

That is, can I buy a used 1, 2, or 3 year old truck and then buy the lifetime warranty?

Re: "Welcome Thread"

Welcome to the Forum; lots of great information here. Enjoy your new truck! Sorry to hear about the Durashakes; have read several others complain about that. I know a lot of guys that run DuraTracs locally here with very good satisfaction. However, we are in an area 3+ hours from the nearest road wi...

Re: AEV Ram!

Re: Couple more news questions

Bones - I have only seen pictures of 2 newer power wagons with snow plows. One was a Fisher on a 2011 PW and they were able to keep the winch & tow hooks but it was a custom mount. (See http://www.plowsite.com/showthread.php?t=152515) "monteholic" on this forum does have a Boss plow, but said he had...

My truck isn't a power wagon, but is 2003 Dodge Ram 3/4 ton with 5.7L Hemi and 3.73 gears, Automatic Transmission. I have an Excel spreadsheet on my home computer with every gas fill up since I've bought the truck 10 years ago. The lifetime average fuel mileage is right around 12 mpg, but has been d...

Re: Orders to DC--PW future?

Just my 2 cents; if it were me I would park the Power Wagon but try to run it a little every few months at least. As long as you have a decent place for storage should be no problem. You have done a lot of nice Mods; would be the pits to have to start over. I have only been to DC once (as a tourist)...

Re: 'Decked' truck bed organizer DR4

adeluca -
I am pretty sure the Manufacturer's web site said it does not work with RamBoxes.

Wow, $500 is a great deal. I'm guessing that would fit my truck (2003 6'4" box).
Now if I had a little more vacation maybe I would just take a drive there; it's only 1300 or so miles and fuel is cheap ;-)

Re: $$$ Kinda Interesting...

When I ordered mine in '08. It sticker for $42,000. Chrysler had a $4,500 discount going on, I used my work discount of $4,500. That's $9,000 off of $42,000 for a total of $33,000. Trade in on my old Ram 1500 4x4 was $5,000. So I paid a total of $28,000 for my PW. No, you still paid 33 for the truc...

That top ABS part that the body color metal is attached to would appear to not have much structural rigidity to resist warping (maybe compounded by the w...

Re: Rambox Panel Warping

You must have gotten a part that should have been rejected; you should stand firm and tell them to replace the entire box (truck bed) including the Ram Boxes if that is what it takes. It sounds like you have already been checking on some of the other Ram (non - Power Wagon) forums; I don't know if y...

Enjoy your new Power Wagon! 04Ram2500Hemi has some nice looking mudflaps (also dig the rock-rails & lower rhino-liner). Also check out Cory1337 2015 build - think he has Duraflaps.
