05 PW upgrades!!

Postby 05PWrockcrawler » Mon Apr 08, 2013 11:45 am

Well my name is Jeff and I live in Goliad, Texas. My 05 PW has 150,000 miles and is in need of upgrades. Just ordered a set of Dynatrac ball joints, RCV shafts, and Spyntec free spin kit. Serious chunk of cash missing from my bank account. Can't wait to see my new parts arrive. I'm going to order a new power steering gear box and hydro assist with linkage upgrade next month. Also need to order front and rear diff covers. Trying to get it ready for a Moab trip early next summer or spring. Hope to meet some of you guys soon!

I have been wheeling for years my rockcrawlers but am tired of hauling rigs around. Gonna make the PW into a dual purpose rig. Can't wait to watch this transformation. It only cost $$$$$$$!! here is a muddy pic of my truck!

Well gonna call Dodge Offroad tomorrow once I get paid and order my steering gear box with hydro assist, shaft, joint, brace, etc. that way when I get off of work in 2 weeks I will have something to do. This Power Wagon is costing me a ton of cash. Damn!!

Well I talked to Dodge Offroad and ordered my Power Steering Gearbox with hydro assist and new shaft. Also ordered front and rear diff covers. I am pretty much broke now. Dumped a ton of cash into this thing in the last 3 months. I could have bought another truck lol. Never gonna sell this truck. It will be my daily driver and wheeler for at least another year or so. So anything that breaks will get upgraded for hard core wheeling. Eventually it will be turned into a truggy in 2 or 3 years. But for now I drive it like I stole it. Gotta build bumpers next. Then I will done for a while. Sold my buggy to finance this build so far.

Nice. You will enjoy the PSC hydro set up. Just dont mount it low, I mounted my ram high near the pitman arm off the frame, running the Thuren Steering kit. Ballzzz tough, and up out of the rocks. I will post pics of my design today.

I sold my Tube chassis buggy to build my Dodge. So I feel your pain, but in the end, it was WAY worth it.. AND still have about 10k left over from selling my tube chassis after building this dodge.

So kinda a win-win..
