Somehow I don’t think I could afford the truck with all the stuff I we have talked about

Oh and dual rear axle option would be nice too.

WTF would you want duals on an off road oriented truck?

Hmmm, love my 2022 PW, but how about...
> Option to remove those ginormous PW decals on the rear quarter panels (dealer did it for me)

Already exists. "Tracer graphics" like the 75A are much more subtle, and you can order with a graphics delete entirely.

> Larger rims & tires, those 17" are way too small

Off road oriented truck, taller sidewalls are the better option for intended purpose. The Rebel is what you want if you want the PW look but more road/tow oriented.

At least 35" tires, and maybe even a 37" tire option. There are all types of vehicles available with at least 35's today. Obviously if they offered 35's stock they would make it so a 35" spare fit.
Lower gears to match the larger tires, like at least 4.56 and maybe even a 4.88 option (they offer a 4.88 option on Wranglers now even with the smaller tires).
Greater fuel range...either by better MPG and/or bigger fuel tank. Call it a 32 gallon tank all you want, but I've never gotten more than 26 gallons in it even after running well past the low fuel and 0 miles left range. Would love at least 40 gallons (or at least 8-10 more gallons than currently).
In regards to the graphics, there have been decal delete options available for several years. For 2024 if you get the monotone paint it just comes with the "tracer" door graphics like the 75A and not the huge rear fender decals (though a lot of people buy a PW for those).
Wonder if they could offer a factory rear air bag setup (in addition to the coils) so they could bump up the factory "legal" payload and towing capacity. That is one of the biggest complaints I hear about for a PW. The rear springs just can't support high bed loads or heavy tongue loads, but if you add in aftermarket airbags people jump on here and say it will explode, kill a bus full of nuns, and you will go to jail over it.

I think they added a cummins option this year. A bunch of stuff other people suggested is already on the newer models. My 21 has buckets with a full center console. 8 speed is a huge upgrade over the old transmission.

Cummins is only available in the Rebel version.

One option that might be coming is the new Cummins 6.7 in line 6 GAS engine. Cummins rates it at 325 hp and 650 torque. This would put it well above others in torque for a large gas engine.

Drive shaft dampener ring thingy. Either attach it like they mean it or delete it. As is, it falls off if you think about going off the pavement.

I had thought the same thing about a factory airbag that worked with the simple cradle setup. That would at least fix the legal issues. The inline 6 may also help by reducing weight.

> Option to remove those ginormous PW decals on the rear quarter panels (dealer did it for me)
> Larger gas tank
> Remove the security access gateway so we have tuner access (I'm aware it can be bypassed)
> Set gas tank capacity to actual, so E means E
> Larger rims & tires, those 17" are way too small
> Improve mileage (my 2022 has > 20,000 miles & I've never seen 18MPG highway)
There is an option from the factory to get the PW without the decals.

Sorry if I missed this in the comments, but how about getting some Aux/Upfitter switches as an option please. The Wrangler Rubicon comes with them. Why can't the Power Wagons!?

Already an option you can select if you are preordering.

Since when? 2025? I had a 22 and it wasn't an option. I just tried building a 2024 and I don't see the option. Maybe I'm blind. I also pre-ordered my 2022.

It isn't on 2024 and down. Are you thinking of the VSIM? That's the only 'upfitter' option on the PW. Non-PW can get the aux upfitter switches, but the PW uses that space for the axle locks.

I’m in Canada and I can order a new PW with the aux switches and the upfitter module. Two options. I’ve been able to do that since 2020. I went to the USA site and saw that you can’t order them. Maybe ask your dealer and back door it.

Interesting. Do you have a picture of them and where they mount? I went to the Canada build/price and selected them but don't see it in the computer generated view of the interior.
