What are all the flavors of the modern Ram Power Wagon? The 2017 model of the meanest off-road truck in Ram’s arsenal has a refreshed exterior and interior. Gone are the chrome crosshairs grille and chrome wheel, the new truck sports Ram’s new grille design, wheels, graphics, and interior appointments.

There is more to the story, as there is a way to get a more affordable version of a 2017 Power Wagon. Those who like the no-frills attitude of a base work truck, you can order a 2017 Ram 2500 HD Tradesman crew cab 4×4 with a Power Wagon Equipment package. This truck gets the same drivetrain and running gear as any Power Wagon, but it largely appears as a regular Ram 2500 4×4 (except for the winch cable poking out of the front bumper).

Many of us love to customize our trucks, and here is a look at some of the modifications that Nina Barlow, owner and operator of Barlow Adventures, made to her 2017 Power Wagon. One of the most common questions we get about the Power Wagon is: “can I upgrade to a larger tire?” The stock 33-inch GoodYear Duratracs are good, but look a little small in relation to the overall proportion of the truck. Nina has a few answers as she is running wider 35-inch tires on her truck. She also upgraded the bumper, the winch, and modified the exhaust system for a little more rumble.
