Just bought this 18 PW, looking forward to getting into some off roading and learning more about this truck.

Looks nice. I love the ram boxes. But don’t expect your steps to survive long off-road. And have a tire repair kit with the stock duratracks. Which I have not yet replaced either. Well, other than the one I destroyed.

Welcome Rusty.

I'm a new PW owner myself. Lots of knowledge on this site and these guys are great at sharing it.

The "get rid of your duratracs" hype is real. I didn't think too much of it but had 3 flats in 2 months with one tire ruined.

Great color!

x infinity on the Duratracs. I had them a couple sets on my last truck, this truck, blew the tread out on one and a sidewall on another. Pulled them off at 40k miles after buying two new ones and utilizing the spare in rotation. 20k miles on BFGs so far with no issues.

Otherwise the truck is ready to rock. Put on WK sliders.

Me 3... ruined a duratrash in the pasture this weekend. Congrats on the PW ! I’m new too and still working my way through folks builds. This is a great site, I sold my M1715 And traded my diesel one ton in to order my powerwagen. It’s by far my favorite vehicle sine my 67 chevelle SS.
