New owner from the PNW

Post by Eightyproof » Wed Aug 15, 2018 12:17 pm

Greetings all, I picked up a 2016 PW a couple weeks ago. Already have it on 37s and some parts on the way to do some modification to the winch. :cash:
Not new to dodge, I've owned an srt8 charger, two ram3500 dually Cummins, and two Durangos.
Looking forward to some great adventures with my PW :cheers:

I'm in the Everett WA area. Hoping to do some snow runs in the local area this winter to get the truck under my feet a little. I'm used to jeeps, wanting to see how a full size throws its weight around.

In the snow, not as well as a Jeep. The big rear diff hangs low and will get you stuck if there’s a crust layer on top. If you’re tying to air down to increase floatation, that diff just gets lower. A Power Wagon on 37s is going to get stuck a lot more than a Jeep on 37s (or 35s).

It’s still fun to give it a go! I’m looking forward to winter, we get some really interesting wheeling opportunities up here in AK when the snow falls and the ground freezes.
