Default 3rd Gen Power Wagon

Picked up a low mileage 07 Power Wagon. Working on getting rid of most of the chrome. These trucks seem to be getting harder to find and this one had pretty much every option and only 55k miles. Added some 35x12.50 Toyo R/T's and had the bumpers, white knuckle sliders and Saltas all color matched. Also did a truck vault all weather and Snugtop Xtra Vision. Black Grill coming soon along with some Fox Shocks from Thuren. Upgraded the steering and track bar also. I really like the Saltas for the 3rd gen. Plan on taking this on the White Rim trail in May

Another 3rd Gen with Saltas here!

I agree, they are a great wheel for these trucks with nearly stock backspacing. AEV should really start advertising these to fit the older trucks!

Dang, that's nice, good find! I have been looking for a 3rd generation Power Wagon with a manual transmission for months now, which is really a rare combo, but not too often do low mileage 3rd gen Power Wagons come up in my search. I have located a manual wagon in CA and expect the owner to deliver it here to Billings in mid May. I have already purchased a topper nearly identical to the one you have (ARE with Windoors w/sliders), and plan on doing drawers similar as well. Definitely post pics when you get some trips under your belt!

Pete, you always seems to pick up the coolest rigs (the CJ8, YJ, Hemi LJ, Brute, Mohave GC, now the power wagon), and I never see you part with any I've them. I know I'm not the only one living vicariously through your purchases. Congrats on yet another cool rig.

Got the Grill and rings back from paint. I've been fortunate to find some unique rigs. Heading to Utah this weekend for a road trip to run my Dog in a NAVHDA Test but first off road trip will probably be the White Rim trail end of May. Working on a Willys Wagon Project now

awesome score! I love my PW. I like the AEV wheels on the 3rd gen. Looks to be a cool rig and project.
