2006 Power Wagon Alaska Build

Postby Wilsonsinak » Wed Jun 07, 2017 12:36 pm

I joined the Power Wagon forum recently. We purchased a stock 2006 Power Wagon to take wheeling and get the entire family out in the wood hunting.

The list of mods so far is short but I will update when we get more done.

So far I have installed Super Duty Bushwacker cut out flares. I have a set of 37X13 Boggers to run on the trail but I am looking at going with a set of 39's for now.

Here is the truck stock on 35's when we bought it.

During the install of the flares. I gained about 4 inches of room with the flares.

I read a write up where someone installed these flares and reshaped them to keep the flares off of the doors. I didn't want to do that so I just trimmed the flare so the door clears it when its opened fully. I really like how they turned out.

Image

I like how the drivers side rear flare turned out with the fuel door opening.

Image

After the boggers went on and headed out for a short trip with the wheeler and dirtbike.

Boggers on after the flares where installed.

I have a set of my buddies 42X15.5 Pitbull's in the garage so I mounted them up just too see how it would look with a massive tire on it. This picture is with the bed side cut for the flare just not installed yet.

With the 42's the truck is not driveable let alone able to be taken offroad. I need to build my long arm setup and move the front axle forward to make clearance for the big tires. For now I'll stick with the 37's until I come across a good deal on a set of used 39's for it.

Future mods include: Snorkel, Front Longarms, small 2-3 inch lift, led lights for the dark Alaska days, on board air, sliders, front and rear bumpers. More ideas will get added to the list as I research what other guys have done and where the weak points on the truck are.

I am running 37X12.50's on the street and will be running 37X13 Boggers this summer unless I come across a deal on a set of 39's. Once I go with a 42-43" tires I will still daily drive the truck on 37-38's.

I was just test fitting these to take notes on where they hit so I could build the truck this winter to fit that size tire.
