It beat a Mega Cab and a F-150. That doesn't seem like much of a challenge. The Peterson Off Road with the Power Wagon and the Jeep Rubicon was a good read. Not sure I want to read this one.

:loud: OK people, lets be honest here. That was a lame test, to be sure, but this is a sore subject of mine, here's why. The name of the magazines are: FOUR WHEELER MAGAZINE & PETERSONS FOUR WHEEL & OFF-ROAD MAGAZINE. The very name of each of them implies thoughts of off-road four wheel drives. As such, the Power Wagon SHOULD have won each and every year since it was re-released in 2005---in the pickup category. It is the ONLY one that can haul ass, haul a real big ass payload & haul it's big ass up/through things that no other stock pickup can. I thought the very nature of these magazines would eventually cause all of the manufacturers to make a better more capable off-road worthy truck. At least Dodge/Ram listened. No one else did. So, instead, the other manufacturers cried foul (just like they did when Mopar came out with the Dodge Daytona & it swept all the NASCAR wins---NASCAR banned it), the magazines came up with "new criteria" for the tests. In order to "ensure fairness", it has to be "all new" or "significantly changed". That is just lame.

We know the deal. Many do not. They rely on magazines like them to pick thier vehicle for them. I know guys that only buy one or two mags a year---The PTOTY issue or the FWOTY issue. Sad really, because if it was based on real world use & performance off-road (like their name implies) then the Power Wagon would have won every year since 2005. :D

I'm just sayin'. :D
