Power Wagon suspension vs standard 2500 suspension questions
 
Hi guys, I just bought a 2013 2500 4x4 crew cab short bed Tradesman a few months ago and I was thinking about lifting it to look like a Power Wagon.

I am wondering how much taller the Power Wagon is compared to my regular 4x4. I know about the lower gearing, lockers, sway bar disconnects, and winch being the obvious differences, and I don't plan on altering those things on my truck. I just like how the Power Wagons look.

The questions I have are:

Does the Power Wagon use longer coil springs or spacers in the front? I don't really care about spring rate, I am fine with the ride my truck has.

Control arms, and track bar the same size as the standard 4x4?

Is the rear suspension the same height as a standard 4x4?

I would be glad to provide measurements from my truck for comparison.

Thanks.

Would this comparison not seem like Apples & Oranges? I've been trying to find these Power Wagons at auctions (the knot heads won't sell'em). Must be a reason. R...

The PW sits 2" higher than the factory 2500 4x4 (Hemi). They use taller springs in front (no spacers) and a micro-leaf pack in the rear (similar to a block). The spring rates for the PW are slightly different than that of the standard 2500 4x4 (Hemi) to be a bit firmer. Combine that with the slightly larger tires and a PW overall is just about 2.5" taller than your standard 2500 4x4.

I may have many left over Power Wagon suspension components soon - Rancho 4 inch lift is on the way :-) If you are interested I could probably be talked into selling them ?
