Getting ready to start Mods on mine such as new running boards, bumpers and possible bed bar. Looking forward to conversing with fellow owners about best mods for the money.
Welcome to the forum. Hide your wallet. Mods can get :cash: . Be careful of going down that rabbit hole. :lol:
Oh RustyPW I have already got the list of items I wanna do I just need to see or hear from others about what's the best options out there. Been looking at a lot of the Go Rhino products and some better wheel to wheel step ups for wife and kids to us getting into the thing. Gonna go mild cause I really like it the way it is. Will post pics once I get back home from my job at Shaw.

Greetings!

I've been a guest on this site for a while now. I pulled the trigger on a new 2017 RAM Power Wagon! I'm going to pick her up on Tuesday. I'd love to give the new PW 6.4 Hemi some rumble, 35's, and lightning upgrades.

Oh and delete those factory sidesteps.

picked up my 2017 PW last month in Northern VA., drove it across country to AZ pulling a small trailer (maybe 4k lbs total) and didn't care a bit about the MPG. The ride was excellent, all 5 days worth of it. I ordered white knuckle rock sliders a couple of days after I purchased it, still waiting for the delivery! Will eventually put bigger tires and replace the stock muffler. Currently trying to plan the PWIM trip next year, by plan I mean get it ok'd with the wife!

Pulled the Trigger....2012 PW

Post by ghaugo » Fri Sep 22, 2017 3:14 pm

I finally pulled the trigger on a new to me/used 2012 PW! I have been scouring the internet and researching since last hunting season about the trucks, and I found this 2012 in Missouri. I live in Colorado, and the Carfax showed that it was originally from Colorado. The skid plates were clean, lockers and swaybar worked, winch was clean and worked, and there was no rust underneath. The engine hours were low, so I could not resist. I was apprehensive to drive 10 hours to look at a truck as I was not sure if I could trust the dealer, but they were great. I made the decision to take my 2015 Ram 1500 out and they gave me a good trade, so I picked this guy up. It was all stock from the factory with 19,000 miles on it. The only things I could find added were the sliders (Aluminess I believe) and a K&N drop in filter. It had the original tires which I switched to Duratracs as they worked well for me on work and personal trucks.

The drive back was amazing! I was concerned about getting the 5.7 and the gas mileage, but I don't drive everyday as I have a work vehicle, so I came to terms with the lack of mileage issue. However, I was actually surprised when I got 15.0mpg on the interstate doing 75mph. I reset the computer at Sterling, CO and I drove to Loveland. I set the cruise at 65mph and the computer showed 17.2mpg when I got to town over 110 miles! I was floored as this was about what my old 2004 1500 would get when I drove easy with it.

Anyway, I have quickly come to understand why all of the folks on this site have such an affinity with the Power Wagons. I thoroughly enjoy mine. It is the truck I should have purchased all along. I am hoping to test it out this elk season, and I can't wait.

I also wanted to thank everyone here for all of the information as this was a long decision for me. I have been reading other Ram forums as well, but this one has the specific knowledge I was looking for about what I believe is the best truck around!
