Not a bit! But I haven't tried to flex it, or even take her off road yet! Haven't had time!

I like the wheels- that's a good idea. Do you have any good pictures of the wheels with tires mounted on them? I'm still torn on what I want to do for wheels myself.

"haven't taken it off road yet,,,,haven't had the time""""""

I once told my CO that I didn't have "time" to do something that he asked me to do........ Man did I get my ass reamed out...... He looked at me after he cursed me up and down and said " Dont EVER tell me that you don't have TIME to do something!!!!!!! If you wanted to do it,,,, then you would have MADE the fucking TIME TO DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!"

;) Just saying:)

LOL Gunny :cheers: !! I know!! I should say, the free time I've had has been spent on my snowboard with my boys, and travelling over the last two weeks of my Christmas break!! Out to BC, and then to Ontario. The wheeling I've done, has been in my Jeep, which is going under the knife, and getting a set of D60's over the next month or so, as well as a lift, hydro assist steering, and other "necessary" mods!! So taking my PW off road is low on my list of free time, with working every second weekend, and doing 12 hours a day, and the weekends I have my boys, we take it to the mountains to ski. So.................there!!! :lol:

As for the wheels, I just got them back yesterday, and need to order Lug Nuts that will work with the center caps. Gotta do that today. I WILL make the time to do that!! I'm gonna mount my 35" BFG MT's on the newer wheels so they're ready for summer, and if I really like the grey, I'll probably powder coat those as well. Once she' done, I'll post pictures.

And I have to talk to Bulletproof Bumpers in town here. I want one of their rear bumpers, but with my own ideas. A rear mount winch, LED lights, and I have a rear spare carrier from an H2 that I want to mount on it, as the 35' tires are iffy mounting underneath, and frankly, I think it will just be better off out back.

And I have a jeep to modify, and I have an SRT-8 300c that I'm playing with, and I found an '07 PW single cab Laramie 6 spd that I'm drooling over.......................I need two of me!! :rofl:

LOLOL I was just giving you shit... :) I completely get it.. I wish I had two of me, also.... I don't think my wife would be very pleased to have 2 of me walking around (think about it;),,, but we can all dream can't we..

A single cab PW with a 6 speed would be the PERFECT truck to build to be the ultimate crawler!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, got them mounted. Ran into a problem tho. I bought lug nuts for the older Powerwagon, so I could run the centre caps. The lug nut are a different thread. Dang it. So now I need to go back to the dealer, and see if these are correct for the older wagons, or if they ordered the wrong ones. My tire guy says these are more like the duallie lug nut than a 3/4. So here she is, minus centre caps. I'll get a daylight picture tomorrow!

Oh, and I've clocked the winch, and moved one of the spreader bars(for lack of a better descriptive word) that hold the halves of the winch together, and will be throwing it in soon. I had to get it set up to run off the bottom instead of the top. I'll get pics of what I did, and the install, but this winch will work in the ARB bumper, no issues, contrary to what Warn says.

I went to the dealership, and found out that Dodge changed the studs and lugs in 2014 to a metric thread. So I have the right lug nuts coming for the beast. They should be in on Monday.

Nice looking rig! I like the ARB bull bar on it, doesn't look like it hangs out too far. Years ago, I had an ARB bull bar on my Jeep WJ and that thing was way out there. Like a shovel for the front end.
