    2020 Ram 1500 Class SLT Crew Cab Paint bubbling

    Complained a few times, when they said they were going to fix the interior they screwed up I asked about the paint again and got nothing back until I contacted the dealer manager and said I was going to contact the right higher up name in the area at the time and let them know about it. Got a...

    2020 Ram 1500 Class SLT Crew Cab Paint bubbling

    I had that issue on my 14 (bought new) on the hood and on the driver fender after a little over 2 years. After numerous times with the dealer the finally got those repainted. Too bad it took them to take the interior apart for a recall with an axe and hammer (broke 3 panels and didn't say...

    Amber headlight reflectors

    I am looking for a set of the amber reflectors for quad headlights. When I took my headlights apart due to fogging, I noticed that one of the reflectors was warped/wavy. The were painted over and the paint wasn’t bubbling so they were like it when I bought them, and I did not notice. But now I...

    Do you use anti seize or impact drill on your lug nuts

    After having almost all the lug nuts loose on every wheel after a tire rotation at a shop I check/retorque the lugs when I get home I'll use an impact to remove them and living in the Chicago area I don't use anti seize on the lugs.

    Vasolene on gaskets

    When I've replaced anything with an oring of any kind I use Dow 33, and Dow 55 when the oring might need to swell up a little bit. Had a bunch of it from paintball years ago, but we also use the dow 33 at work when making pneumatic set ups to go into temperature chambers

    Mileage discrepancy.

    Stupid question, was the truck running or at least in the on position when you went through the gauges? When my 14 is just in the accessory position it reads 40631 miles since reset. As soon as it's in run position the mileage is correct for the oil change. I bought the truck new. Might be the...

    2006 Dodge Ram SRT 10 Quad Cab best true and proven modifications

    Careful with JTSVP. They screwed my buddies SRT10 up when they did a manual swap in it. Never ran right and had vibrations over 70 from the day he got it back. The vibrations were from a messed up transmission output shaft, not their fault the trans they put in was bad is basically what they...

    Ram 1500 Dreadful service expierence continued issues.

    I had the same issue with my paint, but mine was in the middle of the driver side fender along with the hood. The dealer took pictures and then never heard back from them. I would go back in and ask if any news and they were like "we have no record of you and this issue" I even brought it up...

    87 or 89 octane

    I never know what or when something will be on the back of my truck so I always run 89 at minimum. If I know I am going to be pulling something long distance I throw 93 in. I fill up every week, needing it or not so most of the time it's not bad.

    Battery drain mystery

    My 14 is like this. No major off amp draw on mine. If the truck sits 2 days it needs a jump. It is now on it's 3rd battery and thinking it might get it's 4th soon. The 2 OEM ones both had bad cells

    Why do trucks still come with carpeted floor mats?

    I do weathertech in the winter months and the carpet ones in the summer. I tend to take my shoes off on longer drives and the carpet mats

    Jscan - better than AlfaOBD?

    That's more of apple having their stuff "locked" then AlfaOBD adding the support. There area lot of devices that will not work right with apple because of this, hence why jailbreaking took off as well as it did

    It's (almost) here 8-17-2020

    Hope it's not like how the Dakota 5.9 R/T's were. Having less towing rating then the 5.2 trucks, to the point chrysler was buying them back or giving you money for parts and accessories. I think even the Viper trucks had a low towing rating with the auto and nothing for the 6 speed ones
