Anyone have a Ram Power Wagon?

Recommended Posts

So I'm thinking of moving from my 2017 F250 diesel  to a new 2019 Ram Power Wagon 6.4 gas. The main reasons are I never use the F250, 3 years and only 19K miles and I tow with the motorhome mostly. I figure the Power Wagon can still tow a box trailer or flat bed when needed and the ride should be a whole lot better. On top of all that they look like they are trail friendly too, might be fun to follow my buddies in jeeps around on the easy trails.

Looking to see if anyone has any experience towing and/or trail driving the Power Wagon......

You have an AEV Ram pictured. I believe they still base those on a Power Wagon. Is that what you're thinking of buying?

I have a 2012 (5.7L) Power Wagon w/ factory 4.56 gearing. My company truck is a 2014 (6.4L) Power Wagon w/ 3.73 gearing. My job requires me to drive off road to some remote sites. I've towed with both.

We're seeing an issue with the MDS in the 6.4's. Other than that, there are a couple of other things you should consider.

I P.M.'d you my number. I'll fill you in if you like.

Already did that, running 37’s and stock rear leaf springs. It’s SBA but I’m ready for a smoother ride and don’t really need a diesel anymore.

I probably won’t drive it much more than the ford on the road. I’m hoping to hear it’s good on the trails and maybe it’ll get a little use there.

Why not just get a Jeep?

Thanks, I’ll probably buy a power wagon and do either Carli of AEV lift. The idea of 40’s with 3” lift is pretty cool but I need to do a little research.

Jeep can’t tow a box trailer.

Looking like it, but every time I drive it I start to second guess myself.

Every time I drive mine I love it. Trailer or no trailer. 18,000 miles since Sep 2017.
