i drive a 2004 awd cargo van at work. bought at 260k kms from a government auction a few years back for a song, it now has 360k. its needed one set of brakes, three wheel bearings. a front brake hose ruptured while driving and the mechanic said it was poorly designed (banjo tight at full lock?)...
power wagons have dismal payload compared to normal 2500s...
just something to think about.
I think its funny, the guy asks about a 1500 ram to commute with, do some light towing/light off roading and it turns into "get a power wagon"
an import camper might be the ticket, I think they need to be raised up to clear the cab over anyways, so would give you some clearance for the ram boxes. just might need to extended the jacks out to clear the bedsides
I never even knew about speed ratings for tires until I looked up tires for my new truck and all they'd show where ****ty P series tires because the LTs where the lower speed ratings and "not compatible with my truck"
I need to buy some new tires before the winter, so i'm looking at winter rated A/Ts. my truck calls for S rated tires (180km/h) but most LT rated tires in 265/70r17 come in R(170km/h) or Q(160km/h). Has anyone been hassled with putting on a lower speed rated tire?
