10 Things to Love and 10 Things to Hate

Post by FordyceCreekTrail » Sat Jul 07, 2018 11:03 am

With 8 months and 18K under my belt, here are my top 10 things to hate, and to love about the Power Wagon.

Things to Hate;

10. MPG
9. No rear step system
8. Front bumper needs angled ends like other modern 4x4s
7. Ground Clearance under some chassis parts
6. Garage Door opener barely transmits
5. No rear tail gate dampener, very odd
4. No Electrical out lets in bed. VERY Ghetto. Fridge is a PIA
3. Tire size for truck is too small
2. Weight, would be far more capable with even a small weight savings along with MPG
1. Dura Trash Tires don't hold air

Things to Love:

10. Fit and Finish
9. Dual Alternators
8. 8.4 Uconnect
7. Accepts 35s from factory
6. Heavy duty drive-train basis
5. Solid Towing capacity for an off-road truck
4. Sexy Looks
3. Only Factory Sway Bar Disconnect
2. Only Factory Dual Lockers
1. Only Factory Winch
2018 Flame Red, Moon Roof, Dual Alternators, Ram Boxes, Luxo Package with 8.4 UConnect, Enter and Go with remote start, Auto Wipers and Lights. Ordered missing skids and White Knuckle sliders.

I have an 18 that is a week old. The garage transmitter worked better than the factory liftmaster one!

My garage transmitter works great. I switched out a garage door opener and function was buggy when used close to the original remote. It's not the truck's fault garage doors are kind of crappy.

I get 15-16 on the freeway out of my 16. The 07 gets 12 going downhill, with a stiff tailwind. :P

He didn’t say he gets 10mpg... its #10 on the list :run:

I get 13mpg on 37’s in my ‘11. But that just goes with having the best year of Power Wagon.

I can get 18 on the highway. But combined average is around 14. I drive up a mtn to get home. I look at it this way, if they reduced weight it would also be more capable off-road. Its not just about MPG. My wife's 2015 Four runner opens the garage door perfectly every time. Mine barely opens it and only when next to it.

My list of things to hate:
1. The stock Duratracks suck.

Things to love:
Same 10 as yours...:)

This is my 3rd Power Wagon so I knew all your things to hate were part of the deal before I bought it....:)
