2006 Power Wagon

Hey All, I am serously thinking of getting a Power Wagon. I went to the dealership today and test drove one. I loved it. Is there anything I should
be aware of for the 2006 model. The funny thing is the salesman kept asking me what I needed so much truck for. I told him I was going to use it to drive over Hondas. LOL. I am actually going to use it like it is ment to be driven. Taking it to the mountains to go to the middle of nowhere to go camping, off roading, and tow my Jeep YJ. Also, it looks like it can handle 35in tires. Will they fit without a lift kit or should I look at getting a lift kit also.
Thanks
Ben

Hi Ben!
Great choice! I wish I was due for a new truck right now, or I'd be getting one too! I have a 2002 regular cab Dodge 1500 4x4 5.9 ltr with a 5" lift and 35" X-Terrains that does quite well off-road. When it is 5 years old I will be getting a Powerwagon. I have heard that the Powerwagon will handle 35" tires stock. (4WD magazine, I think)
There is an 2005 left on a Dodge dealers lot near me that can be had for 35K OTD with employee pricing and 4.5K rebate for 2005 gas engine 2500... MSRP is 43K.(Jack Powell Chrysler Dodge in Escondido, CA)

The only thing I can say "bad" about them is while Dodge did put 4.56 gears in them, the potenail power gain from them is offset by the larger tires it has on it. It is a shame that they did not put in 4.88's or deeper to give it a real edge over a stock truck with 4.10's. As it sits a stock GM with stock tires and a 4.10 with a 6.0 would likely take it.
