New guy here,
I acquired my dad’s 2011 PW in August. I actually picked this truck up for him in 11’ brand new in Denver and shortly after installed a Northern Lights Slide-In for him. He rarely drove it over the years, and now it has a mere 32,000 miles on it.

I drove it back to Montana from West Virginia and on the way home experienced DW. I mounted a set of 315/70R17 Toyo MTs and never experienced it again. Then I went with Thuren Control Arms, Thuren Track Bar, and Day Star Cradels for the Firestone Air Bags. I also installed a new Mopar Steering Kit (wasn’t necessary, but fairly cheap on Amazon), Marathon Seat Covers, and Weather Tech Mats.
I had Dodge change out the plugs, flush brake fluid, and install new front rotors (not sure why they were warped).

The truck feels rock solid, I haul a 325 gallon water tank off road with it and with 50 psi in the bags it handles it really well. We also ordered a Four Wheel Camper Hawk model to put in the back. It does have surface rust on the axles form being driven occasionally on salted roads and then sitting for long periods of time. Everything works, lockers engage (slowly), winch works, sway bar disconnect works...

That's a great looking truck!

Welcome. I really liked my Toyo MTs. The RTs are almost as good, but the next set will probably be MTs again.
