Re: Fire Extinguisher

Mule inspired me a few months ago to install one. This is a 2.5 lb halotron from H3R Performance. I was going to install a dry chemical on the passenger side but lost interest due to the PITA install.
Yeah my floor is dirty so what? Yes that is yellow Labrador hair, it's everywhere.

Re: Factor 55 ultra hook

I got their flatlink multimount. Keep it in the center console when not in use. bought 4 Crosby 3/4" shackles and some tree-saver straps.
I don't use the factory Hook anymore.

Re: Help. My power wagon doesn’t always start

Sell the truck, or trade it in, and buy a new one from a different dealer. Seriously, you got a lemon (No pun intended) that may have been root cause of something dealer had a hand in.

Re: Improving fuel mileage

IDK about the newer Power Wagons, mine has been 10MPG combined hwy/cty since it was new. The Free spin kit didn't do anything except about 1mpg increase on the highway, with a tailwind. Parking it for extended periods of time is the best method.

Re: Overland Rack - Nutzo Industries Rambox 2

Looks like it is built like a brick house. They definitely have taken some ideas from Leitner designs.
Custom built. You pay extra for that.

Re: Price for Toyo 35" MT's

Those Toyo's are heavy at 75Lbs. I will never buy a tire that heavy for my PW. When I increased diameter to near 35" tall, I tried LT315-70-17 Firestones which were 67Lbs, compared to flotation size 35-12.5-17 at 74Lbs, and only 0.4" smaller diameter. At that time I was going from LT305 Goodyear's t...

Re: Chains up front?

I've run these on front and rear in slush snow/ice. Don't need chains when the snow gets deep. My Firestone M/T2's work great in snow. Diamond tire chain: https://www.tirechain.com/Truck-Tire-Chains.HTM They are lowest clearance chain-type chains I've found. Only cable chains can be found with more ...

Re: Does your sunroof leak?

This is why I never buy a vehicle with a sun/moon roof. It usually hurts your theft insurance rate too.

Thanks for reposting. By the total numbers, you can see how the 2008 stock market crash affected buying a 10mpg truck for years.

Re: Powerwagon's best model year 2005-2020?

Best year(s) is the early 3G Power Wagon, 2006-2008. 2005 was the prototype with all the teething problems. -06 to 08 were Heavy Duty. Cast iron engine blocks and NO MDS system.
Power Wagon design went downhill after DaimlerChrysler sold itself off to Fiat in the Obama economy.

Re: Tranny Guard for ≤'13 Power Wagon

I ordered a Maple Offroad 3 bar skid plate replacement $$$. That should show I have serious interest in wanting tranny protection for early 3G Power Wagon.

Re: Tranny Guard for ≤'13 Power Wagon

I would buy one for my 2006. I am always amazed at the lack of protection there when I crawl under the truck.
