Can I just buy power wagon axles

Post by Thatdodgeguy » Mon Oct 21, 2019 3:00 pm

So I wrecked my 2010 pw I miss it but not the mpg. Got a2016 Cummins. Can I just buy some pw axles I know they started using the 11.5 & always used the 9.25 and other than maybe figuring out how to control them right which could be done, don’t they operate as a torsen limited slip when unlocked anyway? That would get me gears and lockers easy. Just no winch yet, and no sway bar? Still turn my head like a kid at every power wagon I see tho!!! I genuinely miss mine like a family member but hey 120 mph on the interstate wasn’t a good idea in that thing & I drive like an old man now. No one else was involved in the wreck but me. I had the governor turned off wish now I hadn’t done that. But hey I get 18 mpg now easy on 35s
2010 Ram Power Wagon. dual exhaust, CAI, 87mm moes throttle body, diablo intune, spyntec manual hub kit, icon control arms, top gun customz panhard adjustable bar, 2 inch coil spacer. Stock shocks. 35x12.50x17 general grabber red letter out, amp power steps. Electric fan. Top gun customz +2 sway bar end links.

My absolute favorite things I've put on thus far, the amp power steps & those icon control arms (tire rub drives me nuts). That & every performance bolt on I've put on I freaking love, but if I had to choose it would be those steps (gotta bad leg & the steps are a major help) & icon control arms.

Buy the right parts the first time! Because the job is done, when it's done right!

If the axels are the same, just get lockers for your rig, you don't need to get Power Wagon axles. While you're in there get lower gears...:)

Yea. You’d mostly likely be better of just regearing your current axles and adding lockers.

Regarding re-gearing:
Keep in mind that the optimal gear ratios in our gassers are different from the optimal gears in your CTD. 4.10:1 would be low for the CTD and 5.13:1 would be low for the 6.4's.
