2016 Power Wagon Build: ContinueCrushing

Post by continuecrushing » Sat Feb 24, 2018 1:29 am

I've been poking around here long enough, and figure it's time to start a build thread!

Starting off, we picked the Power Wagon for a variety of reasons, and heavily considered a Raptor or ZR2. The ZR2 was just waaay too small for us (wife+kid+dog+me=overpacking for everything...) and the Raptor was too expensive for the (ab)use it would have surely been through. Started looking at 2017 models, but ended up finding a 2016 at a steal of a price, and brought it home!

Of course the wife said something along the lines of "don't mod it" or something, but idk, I couldn't hear her clearly and chose not to assume what she said. This is my first "real" truck, as I've had a handful of modified cars, motorcycles, and SUV's, but never a true truck!

Traded to 2019 ZR2, Red.

4Runner was a GREAT vehicle but could not even tow our 6x10 enclosed utility trailer comfortably, even when it was empty-ish.

It was time. Truck was still leaking BADLY every time it rained or snowed & melted. It was leaking at every single gasket (rear window, front window, all 4 doors). You could sit inside & watch it run down the inside of windshield, rear window & drip off the upper side door beams. It was molding on the inside & starting to stink. Needed new steering gearbox, shocks, new upgraded T-style steering, tires, brake lines, d/s manifold bolts that are barely recognizable due to rust-removed & replaced. Everyone around here would not even touch em once they looked at them.

So, say what you will. PW turned into a money pit. Was no longer a joy to drive. Hoping that this downsized 4x4 with lockers will fill the bill & have minimal problems, but..... As long as manufacturers keep making engineers design things that fail soon after warranty is up, we are going nowhere fast. Regardless of what you buy. :rockon:
