    Paint for Ram Side Steps

    The silver shinny through is the aluminum of the side step...not chrome.

    Paint for Ram Side Steps

    I have a set of black Ram Side steps on my 2016 Ram 1500. The steps are holding up well except for the area were by foot goes the paint has worn off. I have the driver's seat set are far back as it will go which means that when I step out of the truck my foot contacts the side step not on the...

    Ready for a laugh?

    So I noticed 10-12 drops of oil on my driveway. I looked underneath my 2016 Ram 1500 Sport and noticed the front of the transfer case was covered in oil. This was in the area of the front seal. I thought my seal was leaking so I decided to book an appointment to get it repaired (I am getting too...

    Having stereo read text messages

    Turning on Bluetooth uConnect "Show Notifications" fixed the problem. I now get a pop up on the truck screen that I can tap and have the text message read to me while I am driving.

    Having stereo read text messages

    Under Messages? I just checked the Messages and I see that "Focus" was not turned on (I have now turned it on). Under the "Allow Notifications" section its turned on. "Show in CarPlay" is turned on even though I don't have CarPlay. "Show Previews" is set to Always. "Customize Notifications" is...

    Having stereo read text messages

    2016 Ram 1500 with the 8.4 Stereo. I have it paired via Bluetooth with my iPhone. I used to get a pop up message on the truck screen when I got an incoming text message and I could tap the truck screen and have the text message read to me. I was playing around with my iPhone one day and now I no...

    question for the "northerners"

    I have to park outside and we have long spells of -20 to -30 C weather. I plug in my 5.7 whenever it is below -15 C. Just makes the startup so much easier. I run a timer so the block heater is only running for 3 hours and I also use a heated battery blanket. On startup my coolant temp is usually...

    T20 sunglasses pocket screws

    I used those screws to mount the head unit of my icom radio. I had to get longer screws but found them in an auto parts store with the correct thread. They were on one of those racks that have all the trim repair parts.

    Hemi carnage - All 8 intake valves bent after cam swap

    Just speculating here .....What about the possibility of bumping the cam bearing backwards out of position during the installation of the new cam? The new cam runs OK with the assemble lube but then seizes up due to lack of oil and that shears off the dowel pin on the cam phaser?

    Yes the 3rd brake light antenna mount is cool but the pricing on them is crazy expensive.

    -32 C...No start

    Come out this morning and its -32 C. Had the truck plugged in on a timer for 4 hours but it was a no crank/no start. The stock battery has lost its mojo in the cold. Looks like I will be shopping for the biggest/most powerful replacement battery I can stuff in there. I think I will also get a...

    Ham Radio Antenna

    An online source for Hams in Canada..... www.radioworld.ca They also have a retail store in Toronto and Calgary if you are near those locations. I have purchased many radios/gear from them over the years. Saves the hassle of cross border shipping/duties etc. Oh yeah....i'm VE6JHC

    Ham Radio Antenna

    The roof mount provides a better ground plane and offers better performance 360 degrees. The fender mount saves you from drilling through the roof but gives up some performance in the direction away from the hood. The higher roof mount can also be a clearance issue in your garage or parkade. All...

    Ham Radio Antenna

    I didn't want to drill my truck either. I used a fender mount for the antenna that uses the stock fender bolt. Yes I would get better antenna performance if it was mounted in the center of the roof but it works great on the fender mount. The radio is mounted under the driver's seat and the head...

    Mud flaps yes or no

    I have the plastic Ram ones....You don't notice them on the truck really. It does keep the rock chips away and it helps to stop the wheel spray from making the sides of the truck dirty. They are not heavy duty units but for my street use they are decent.
