2016 Power Wagon Build: ContinueCrushing

Post by continuecrushing » Sat Feb 24, 2018 12:29 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!
