Barry, from Northeast Oklahoma. 13 PW with every option except sunroof. Side note, I will never again buy a truck that does not have Ram Box.

No real mods... well, LineX bed... and intake... and exhaust... but that's it...

Anyway, here's her pic



Welcome to the :winchmob:

Im right with ya on the rambox... sure is handy!

'13s come with those wheels/tires? I thought '14 was first year?


My '13 PW came with BFG's as OEM, the '14 came with Goodyears as OEM



My bad, the Goodyears are replacement. I do have in excess of 90,000 miles on her. Rims though are the ones that it always had

Wheels I've always had. The Goodyears are replacements, I've got 90,000+ miles on it. The BFGs were gone long ago.

Does your truck have 14mm or 9/16" lug studs?

Hi All,
Noob to trucks and the forum.
Have learned that I am a truck guy! After many exotic sports cars, if I had to choose one car to spend the rest of my life with, it would be a truck. I love my truck!

2016 Ram Power Wagon, AEV Prospector

I live in S CA. Considering adding a four wheel camper, habitat, or off-road trailer: teardrop or turtle.

I look forward to learning from the members of this board!

Well, it's been two and a half years of PW envy but I'm back. Picked up a 2017 Tradesman with the PW package yesterday. It feels so good to be back in a PW. Had a regular 2500 with a 6.4 and it just didn't cut it. Loving the ride, the look, and the feeling of knowing that I can go just about anywhere. And now the mods begin! :cash: :winchmob:

Welcome! How is the ride difference between the PW and the standard 2500, since you have a straight-across comparison?

The ride is a night and day difference to be honest. Although the rear coil springs on the 2015 2500 were a lot softer than the 3G PW I had, but this new PW runs circles around a normal 2500. On the way to the dealership, the freeway roads were incredibly rough and in the 2500 you felt every bump. The PW took those same roads much easier. You felt the larger bumps, but I didn't even notice the smaller ones. Also, you really notice the 2 inch ride height increase. I haven't noticed a large difference in fuel economy, but I have noticed that the PW stays in "ECO" mode more than regular 2500 did. I think this is because of the 4.10 gears vs 3.73.

Welcome, I'm like you. I was a sports car guy. Sold my toys to finance a dream (traveling the US for a couple years full time), which required a truck. And then discovered that I'm a truck guy. I got the itch. I still love go fast. But I get trucks now too.
