New to the registry. Have a 2016 Power Wagon that I bought used with 3k miles on it. It still smelled new inside. Live in Colorado. So far added step bars from NFab. Looking to add a topper. Anyone have pics or recommendations on which ones are the best? Also maybe one day the locker bypass if they are still out there. :cheers:

Hello? Testing... THello Power Wagoners. I'm a long-time MOPAR fanatic who recently converted from 10 years of Cummins Diesel ownership. As we go through life our needs and wants change, I've always had a distant love affair with Power Wagons since the name was revived by then Daimler Benz. It was always the truck I wanted but could never work into my garage, my wallet, my scheme, or my lifestyle. But here I am finally scratching that itch and happily married to a 2017 PW in two-tone Granite Crystal , drool.

In my younger days I spent most of my time pioneering how to fit the biggest turbo into a Cherokee SRT8. I raced for many seasons in the Modern Hemi Street Shootout series and hueld a record or two on the 1/4 mile strip, briefly of course. That's where I met most of my fellow MOPAR friends and had a blast doing it all over the East Coast. Towing a race rig around with a forged-out Hemi in it requires a lot of heavy highway time, and the CTD just can't be beaten. So I've been staring at the PW at a distance for the better part of a decade like a long lost cousin, whilst sitting behind the wheel of my CTD not able to justify owning (much less where I would park) two full size trucks. But those days are past, sold my boat some time ago, got off active duty a while back so no more crazy cross country moves, and my racing days are now memories (until I stumble into a giant stack of money). The time of the PW is here, now older, broker, and wiser, the outdoors occupies more of my time. Camping trips, hunting trips, and the need for a HD work truck for a side business all added up to pull trigger on a 2017. When they dropped the Hotwheels graphics from the 2016 In favor of a more "rebel-like" truck it was like Sexual Chocolate (Randy Walker, aka Joe the Policeman from the 'What's goin down' episode of 'That's my Momma'".

Previous Rigs:
2003 Ram 1500 QC 4x4 Laramie 5.7 Hemi
2007.5 Ram 3500 QC 4x4 SRW Laramie 6.7 Cummins
2010 Ram 3500 MC 4x4 DRW Laramie 6.7 Cummins

Current Rig:
2017 Ram 2500 CC 4x4 Power Wagon 6.4 Hemi
-Leather Package
-Ram Box
-Sunroof
-Power Folders
-Convenience Group
-Trifold MOPAR Tonneau Cover
-LED Bed Lighting and Spray-in Liner

Eventually I'll post up a pic or two. I look forward to talking with you all about these amazing trucks.

FNG here from NC. Bought a brand new 2012 PW back in the day and only has 58k on it now. Found this site after going to I guess what is now the old location. 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.

New owner here. I bought a 2017 about a month ago. I replaced a 2000 2500 V-10. The old V-10 still runs great but after owning for 16 years it was time to upgrade. What an upgrade. I do like this new Ram!

I had been lurking for a while and thought I should post something. Great site.
