New Power Wagon after 5 years of dreaming

Post by benking » Thu Feb 14, 2019 10:48 am

I'm new to this site and to Ram truck ownership, but on Tuesday I ordered my 2019 "Power Wagon"! Quotes are because I opted for the Tradesman with PW package, RamBox, 220 amp alternator and clearance lamps. The vinyl floors and seats and basic radio in the Tradesman suit me well, and I still get all that sweet Power Wagon running gear!! I should have the truck by the end of April and I'm wicked psyched! Anything I should know about the Power Wagon or this forum, let me know. I look forward to gaining your knowledge! Thanks!

Congrats on the pending new truck. You may find Tradesman shaming on FB or other forums, but there's none of that here. A Power Wagon is a Power Wagon, regardless of trim level. Welcome to the fun!

Getting it in what is apparently a new black color, diamond black crystal? It'll be my third black truck, I like it! And yes, I realize how hard it is and no, I do not plan on keeping it that clean! I'm thinking 37s with a BDS lift is in the future. As usual, I've opened a can of worms! Thanks for the interest

Welcome, might as well introduce you to Thuren now https://www.thurenfabrication.com/
I'm guessing thats the direction everyone on this forum will tell you to go for suspension, they do good work for our trucks. Thats the way I'd go if i were set on a lift
If I start listing Mods I would have to change the list daily
