    Anyone have a Ram 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.

    Paddle clearance

    Quite the contrary. Purty sure I've read every post in every thread you've started and I've learned a lot. I can't wait to see some pictures of this when it's finished.I remember when you posted it up strapped on the 18 wheeler flatbed the day it was delivered.

    Flashlights 2..uh..

    Check Amazon for Maglite LED conversions. I've bought a couple of LED replacement bulbs by ABN for older Maglites. About $17.00 and they work. They claim 220 lumens, but I've found that the new Maglite LED series lights give off a better, brighter adjustable beam. ABN are not bad bulbs though if you want to save an older light, make it brighter and increase the run time.

    Plenty of good flashlight info posted here so far. If you're OK with a simple Maglite, just check out their LED and LED ML series C & D cells. Compare the claimed lumen output and the run times on high, low, and eco modes to get what's best for you. Not that expensive for something that can save your ass if you have to be out of your truck after dark.

    I'll bite. As far as Maglite goes, I tried upgrading mine and found (for me) it's just better to buy a new LED version. I like the heft of the three-cell ML300LX. It's programmable for different light/flash patterns. Duracell's are easier to pick up than the National Enquirer and I replace batteries at least yearly like it's a smoke detector. https://www.amazon.com/Maglite-ML300LX-3-Cell-Flashlight-Foliage/dp/B00S7W3GDQ/ref=pd_sbs_469_3/144-1264491-9249548?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00UCYDJ02&pd_rd_r=e3b5a2b6-73b4-11e9-a70e-fdfd69152f1b&pd_rd_w=PQeZw&pd_rd_wg=Jupif&pf_rd_p=588939de-d3f8-42f1-a3d8-d556eae5797d&pf_rd_r=XN3Z8Y76Y16X9JZYV8RY&refRID=XN3Z8Y76Y16X9JZYV8RY&th=1 For a mini light I like the 800-1000 lumen Streamlights. Pricey, but it's cheaper than stepping on a rattlesnake. They've even got a 3500 lumen model. https://www.amazon.com/ProTac-CR123A-lithium-batteries-lanyard/dp/B079D35ZX8/ref=pd_sbs_469_11?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B079D35ZX8&pd_rd_r=df688606-73b3-11e9-a617-ef95815d54ab&pd_rd_w=Lfgbv&pd_rd_wg=pz9H8&pf_rd_p=588939de-d3f8-42f1-a3d8-d556eae5797d&pf_rd_r=EZB726YMM5EJFJZM736Z&refRID=EZB726YMM5EJFJZM736Z&th=1 I sent my in-laws a Streamlight Siege just before Irma. They used it during a two day power outage. We moved them to Arizona last October and the Siege wouldn't light. I sent it back. Streamlight sent me a Super Siege in return. About a $75 upgrade. 1100 lumens. Nice of them. https://www.streamlight.com/en/products/detail/index/super-siege

    2007 FUNCO GEN 4 39K

    It's all explained in his updated CL ad. Still for sale. $38K. ATTN: Guys on glamis dunes buggies for sale have been bashing me and this car. You just gotta love the social media BS! Just want all to know the truth about this car. (1) The ad on that site is from 7/2017 and was on last page now moved on front page? (2) Bought car from a buggy dealer in Indio, (car was from AZ) he never registered it in CA so I'm second titled owner. The car was not done so I had all other work finished here in SD along with a complete once over. (3) One guy low balled me I never said I'd take his offer told him minimum amount I would take and was waiting for others to look at it. (4) Another guy tried to buy sight unseen, thought that was kinda strange? (5) I feel bad about last guy I did say ok on his offer as I was facing couple surgeries. Apologized to him and yes was a dick move by me and decided to have surgeries and see how it goes. So I did contact him back after a year (2018) of recovery per our agreement. (6) Then I re advertised car on Craigslist starting in 2019. Those guys all have commented on it being a clean car and in great condition. I am not hiding anything or playing games and will sell it for a fair price. Hope they cool all the "troll" comments on glamis dunes and let me sell the car. Funny the guys bashing me also have cars for sale, maybe theirs will sell first? I Put 60 Hours On It After I Bought It And Went Through Buggy / In Excellent Condition / All Receipts From First Owner, Guy In Indio And Myself / Turnkey Engine Supply LS6 @ 450 HP / Mendeola 2D / Full Roof / Custom Dash And Hood With Cooler Opening / Intercom System, IPod Player And Car To Car Radio / Funco Gen 5 Style Front Fender Extensions (keeps sand out) / Entire Body Has Been Powder Coated (paint and wraps don't last in the sand) Rear Trunk And Under Seats Storage / On-board Air Compressor / Nose And Engine Skid Plates / New Front Baja Pro Tires / Trailer Wheels With BF Goodrich A/T Tires / 4 Headsets And Storage Case / Whip Antennas (night and day) /Adult & Kids Seat Belt For Rear Bench Seat / Buggy Has Been Religiously Maintained By Firefighter 38K /// Also Have 16' Carson Trailer (buggy fits with paddles on), Has Hydraulic Surge Brakes, Spare Tire And 8' Ramps 3K /// NO TRADES, NOT A FIRE SALE, REASONABLE OFFERS WILL BE CONSIDERED
