Sweet, looking forward to some pics! I see you like to mod your trucks, upgrading the shocks and 35" tires are the best bang for the buck to improve your off road performance.

A PW will fit in Steel Pass. Very slight scratches on my rear bumper coming over the rock falls.

Placed order late November. Supposed to arrive last week of January. So about 10weeks, but we did have two holiday weeks there as well.

Can't find the exact one I want especially since I want a 17 and not many are on the lots yet. If I'm going to wait and spend that much I mind as well just order

Cars.com has a fairly advanced search engine that will allow you to look at zip codes and distance. Do a search for Ram 2500's and then narrow the search for "22P". I used it with very good results when initially researching trucks. By the time I was ready to buy I knew where almost every new Power Wagon was for sale in eight states. Since I travel a lot I was able to physically look at them, however I ended up buying sight unseen from DD.

Granite crystal was my second choice but the blue flame in the maximum steel is awesome in the sun when clean. I did not realize that it was so dirty in the bottom picture.

Yes sir, they are the WK sliders with full diamond plate. The place I got them coated used a very textured powder coat and they are not slippery at all.
