    1st ram

    Everything on the truck is original! Other than the noise coming from my 37's tires on the highway, she is still running as if I bought her brand new and I abuse the truck like no other (Well I went through 4 Wheel Hubs, and broke my Icon Coilover when I Duke n Hazard jumped it haha) . Tow's...

    1st ram

    Congratulations on your new truck and the research you did with the hemi's! Like you said, unregular oil changes and high idles will get you the hemi tick that will result in the lifters going bad and the camshaft. These hemi's hate idle, but they love when you go a little hard on her from time...

    What DON'T you like about your RAM?

    For sure, I never said it was the trucks fault - its just that I've now experienced the cam lifter failures like other people had. I couldn't ask for a better truck for my needs and it has accomplished it. Now that's its fixed and working 100%, I will stick with it for now until I need to...

    What DON'T you like about your RAM?

    Just had a $6000 repair bill to replace all the lifters and push rods. Surprisingly the Camshaft was in great shape, so that was untouched... 150,000 km on truck, and I have as much idle time as engine hours due to a lot of idle time when I used my truck for work in the oilfield... I think I...

    What did you do with your 4th Gen this week?

    Just dropped off truck at my mechanic, the hemi tick got very louder than usual after sitting for 3 weeks in -30*c weather and missfire on cyl # 7. Hope its not lifters / cam... 150,000km and a shit ton of idling from work use

    Creative Ham Radio Mounts

    Curious if the frame is plastic or metal. Depending on the length of the antenna, it may cause a lot of stress on the antenna base and break? I do love the product idea

    Long crank when hot outside

    I have same issue on my 2017 (150k km / 93k miles). Cold start has no problem. Once I shut truck off for 15 min, or its already warn, it does it long crank for 5 seconds and struggles to start (But it always starts) I've changed Fuel Pump assembly, CPS, MAP, etc... and no changes. Mechanic...

    2015 ram 1500 sport front sway bar cracked

    I've had my front swaybar removed for about 4 years now. Have not seen a difference, though I have rear Airbags filled all the time so that balances the truck... BUT I am taking a risk if there were to be a accident that something may happen... so be advised

    What did you do with your 4th Gen this week?

    Put my Sport bumper back on to relief the weight in the front, kinda liking the original look. There is a company in my country Canada that makes a hidden winch behind the stock bumper and reinforcing the middle area versues the weak stock one, so I am probably get that...

    Stumped - CV Axle angle looks too far forward

    Well, today I visit my local dealer and luckily there was another truck with the same lift that I took a peak and it's exactly the same way. So, never mind then lol

    Stumped - CV Axle angle looks too far forward

    Not sure what you mean there, but I'm guessing the cam bolts for the lower control arms? It's still all good, there is CV grease all over cause the boots torn apart. There isn't any fray or stress in the lines when I doubled checked now.

    Stumped - CV Axle angle looks too far forward

    They have, yes but this was about a 2 years ago. Anyone with a 6" Lift can take a picture inside their wheel well and see how your CV axle align?

    Stumped - CV Axle angle looks too far forward

    I cannot for the life of me figure out why my CV Axles are moved forward near the knuckle, any ideas? I had the dealership install a new front diff because my old one passenger stub went bad and had no time to wait for part , so I'm wondering if they installed the brackets incorrect... But...

    Keep or disable DRL?

    In Canada, its by law that you need DRL so I would check your state to see what they require. You could just go rogue and have it off, but like @Socalramfan mentioned - its pretty amazing how people cannot see big trucks. I love the DRL on the highway because people that are on-coming traffic...
