Sold mine over two years ago but I liked it a lot. Back in a RAM now the diesel type which I think is their strong suit.

How it looked an hour before heading for its new owners home back in 2/2019 some 2000 miles away. 37x13.50's with a simple set of Thuren leveling springs, The new owner is still active on here and uses the ever living crap out of the thing.

Yeah I’m not sure if I should go 35’s or 37’s. I like that I wouldn’t have to modify anything for 35’s. But I love the look and capability of the 37’s

I just don’t ever pull much, so the power wagon made more sense as I hunt a bunch and am out in the middle of no where often

There are guys running 37's on bone stock PW's, you have to trim a little but it's doable. Adding the Thuren front coil is simple and cheap and easily allows for those larger meats. My father went with 35's on his and he always wished he had done 37's instead.

I thought the same and I spend most of every September through February running around all over Texas chasing birds. When I needed air bags to handle a 1500lb payload and when I got 5-6mpg towing 7,000lbs in west Texas I called it quits. For me the diesel makes more sense, they always have prior and it has ever since. The PW was a gamble and a departure and while I appreciated its off-road capabilities its actual truck capabilities left me needing more. If you don't tow more than 5,000lbs and keep your payload under 1300lbs you'll be golden, so long as you can deal with the lack luster fuel economy and ticky Hemi haha.

Yeah my tent trailer weighs 2200lbs and that all I really pull... I may set up to an actual trailer but I won’t go above 6k lbs.

Any other mods you guys have done? Id like to do a dual battery set up, an air compressor, and better breaks.

And of course lights... already have a diamond back cover on the way

I haven't done much. I did had some baja design squadrons in the factory fog holes. I use a portable air compressor that way i can move it between our 3 vehicles. I also had a diamondback cover when i bought the truck. I liked it a lot and liked how easy it was to remove. I only switched to the softopper so we can fit a dog kennel in back.
