Have questions.
Does Thuren make the 3" to fit the 3G?

Also, do they make the rear with a remote, not a piggyback?

And can you run the rears upside down? I'm think rock clearance. i don't want chit hanging low.

I believe you can custom order the 3” short bodies for only the 03-13 trucks and not 14-present.

You must run the rears shaft-up because the factory brackets barely allow them to fit, you could not bolt the body in that position. If you weld some custom brackets on the frame you could flip the shocks and run hose remote or stick with piggyback.

I welded in the Carli shock mounts out back and had to cut the bed sheet metal in a couple places to fit my 3,0 bypasses shaft down. It’s not a lot of cutting really, doubt if you could make it happen with stock mounts though

this bad ass truck just got sold guys....no longer own a powerwagon.... dealer gouged me.

brought it in for service to diagnose a service 4wd light and cluster notification.
I was driving it for over 1000 miles after getting it stuck at my lease and having some issues with the systems.( i thought wet swaybar module or CAD module)

I did another inspection post multiple cleanings and found a transfer case shifter linkage bushing missing?....wow. Confirmed it was in 2wd but honestly, it may have been in 3wd with CAD and no right front? it had been driving non typical but the 37s were worn out of wack.

i have no idea what actually happened but they wanted me to remove the air swaybar bypass and my abs kill switch and the locker bypass harness. lol

i said deal with it yourself...$37k for a loaded 18 with 39k miles and a fender bender on the carfax.

someone is going to get a killer deal.

PS Im looking for a 3rd gen Cummins for a tow rig.

if you have insight please lend it... it is greatly appreciated.

or..if you prefer to convince me that a 3rd gen powerwagon with a turbo and airbags is towing capable enough..that is also greatly appreciated!!!!

(i need a diesel to tow a swamp buggy, it just happens to be the necessary tool on my swampy lease. 10k acres of high and dry and low and get your truck swamped in a second)(a sxs works but its not as much fun as a land pontoon in which you can jump off and tackle a boar shark or hang high and reel in a 10 point Buck fish)
