Christmas sale?If anyone is questioning the strength of our sliders mounted to the body you should take a look at these pictures. One of our customers was hit at 50mph by someone who ran a red light. These particular sliders were made out of chromoly, but are still mounted to the body of the vehicle.
I wonder why they don't make a regular cab version?
You’re right about that. I test drove a new body style 2010 PW this last fall (a purdy Black one!) and was amazed by the power it didn't have. It was more gutless than my stock Tahoe Z71 with a 5.3L. Our high Colorado altitude eats up a lot of power just due to the nature of living here but it was noticeably slow. On the other hand, board member Coloradobill and I test drove a used 2005 or 2006 old body style Quad cab Power Wagon with the same 5.7L Hemi and…. WOW, that one was fast! It would actually leave a two tire fire just poking the pedal to the floor at a dead stop and ran out like a scalded dog. We think it had some ECM tuning done somewhere along the line. Like GM engines, I think Chrysler has the gas engine calibrations set up with too much torque management to protect the driveline. Turn off torque management and add a hot tune gives them an all new personality. The bone stock 8.1L in my 2001 Silverado doesn’t have near the power the 8.1L does in my ’78 K10 running tweaked ECM calibrations. The stock 2001 Silverado 8.1L has plenty of power while the same engine in the ’78 is just flat out mean.The 5.7 Hemi V8 doesn't really seem to have enough oomph to push around these big trucks especially loaded down with the typical gear you might find on this board.
