My 48' PW.

No pics of my regular Hemi 2500 (PW wanna be) I'm in the process of modifying it to be a little more offroad friendly. I picked up a barely used Ram Power Wagon winch, installed a 160a alt, and did a few minor wiring upgrades so far. Future plans include a set of PW axles, OBA system and a small lift

No pics of my 05' Ram Hemi 2500 (non PW) nothing spectacular just a lightly used PW winch, 160a alt, and some minor wiring upgradès.

Hello from SE Washington.

Went up into the hills behind our place for a little shootin. and to try the PW gadgets out.

Image

The shootin' was good and so was the PW. Plans are to run the Back Country Discovery Route in WA and do the Barlow Trail down in OR this year.

I've been wanting one of these for several years and now that it's here, time to use it.

Thanks, its my DD/wheeler/fence puller/log skidding machine. I like my 05' too, but mostly it just sits in the garage because I'm afraid to scratch it.

New 2016 PW

Post by Gator Skin » Sat Jul 16, 2016 11:44 am

New to the forum. Just got a silver 2016 PW. Love it. First thing I did was take off all the decals and digital mud and paint the red grill vanes black so it looks very clean and simple. Then I put on the Truxx 1.5" level kit with BFG KM2 35x12.50's on the stock rims. The they look and fit great. Thought I was done at that point until wife, kids, grandparents complained about it being too high to get in so I finished it off with some amp research retractable steps. They are great and hide perfectly. Looking forward to many years of fun and work with this truck. Especially pumped that I can fit 3 kids in car seats across the back seat.

Post by yellowranger1 » Tue Jul 19, 2016 12:16 pm

Finally picked up my 16 Blue Streak PW yesterday morning. Drove it home from Idaho (near Boise) straight back to Southern California about 13 hrs. The stock duratracs have a wicked shake from 70mph up to about 80.... Glad they won't be staying too long! Plan is to remove decals and put some 35" ko2 on it. Beyond that, it will get some rock sliders and a bed rack/RTT setup later this year.

I combed the forums here for anything I could soak up on these before purchasing, lots of good info and great member builds on here. Looking forward to getting mine dirty!

Welcome to the Forum; lots of great information here. Enjoy your new truck!

Sorry to hear about the Durashakes; have read several others complain about that. I know a lot of guys that run DuraTracs locally here with very good satisfaction. However, we are in an area 3+ hours from the nearest road with > 55 mph speed limit (almost no chance to ever drive 70 mph, let alone 80 mph) so maybe with our slower speeds guys don't feel the shakes.
Trucks: 2003 4x4 Dodge 3/4 ton, 1972 4x4 Ford 3/4 ton (factory hi-boy), shopping for new Power Wagon (or may wait for 2020 model? - 75th year special edition?)

I think whoever mounted the tires was slightly distracted....... Says on the sidewalls max psi is 65, one was at 88, two at 75, and one at 80, so I'm sure it's just a sloppy balance job which is an easy fix, but a nuisance nonetheless! I have a set of brand new 37" ko2 I might try out on this truck. I'm just iffy about the decrease in performance/mpg.

So much for dealer prep that you paid for. :( It's the Mexicans at the factory mounting and balancing the tires. No QC there. :(
