    Sounds low. i would guess the dealer ship is working on a 20-25% margin on your trade.

    What DON'T you like about your RAM?

    I think the seats could be more comfortable. Also I lack a little bit space around my right knee when driving.

    2020 RAM 2500 6.7 Cummins blown due to dealer error

    If I was in the market for a new truck I would rather buy a truck with a new engine. Just make the dealer ship write a statement that explains that it is a factory new engine And the reasons why it was installed.

    Transmission Temps While Towing

    My 3200 runs at 168 99% of the time. Once it reached 197 on a very steep grade with many switchbacks. I was not towing and the speed was around 20 mph. So very little airflow.

    Previous Canadian truck.

    I would check idling hours. Did see a truck with 9000 miles on the dealer lot that had 850 idling hours!

    DPF regeneration

    I towed about 500 miles and got another regeneration message. What surprised me was that it started regeneration more or less 30 seconds after a cold start? Engine and oil temps under 100 degrees? I would have expected the system to be a little bit smarter and start the regeneration when temps...

    Advise on towing

    Hi guys, Have a 3500 SO 68 RFE. When I talked to the salesman he recommended to only use gear 1-5 when towing on the freeway. (Eliminating gear 6) Going up steep grades he said use gear 4 if it is hunting between 4 and 5. My travel trailer is about 9000 lbs fully loaded. So not so heavy. I...

    CP 4 vs CP 3

    I know that the CP 4 is not as reliable as the CP 3. I also know that if the CP 4 goes bad, it is very likely that the fuel system up stream from the pump is likely to be contaminated. What happens if the CP 3 goes bad? is there risk for fuel contamination?

    What inspired you to buy a RAM truck?

    I fell in love with the ride quality. it rides smoother than the Ford. Then I like the design and the fact that the engine still sounds like a diesel engine.

    Charging RV with alternator on Truck

    Yes on my F-250 I used Anderson connectors. Did run 6 AWG and that was enough to get 27A from a 30A DC/DC Charger. (4 AWG would be enough to get 30A) Used a solonoid that was activated by one of the upswitches. That had the advantage that I could deactivate the charge from inside the truck.

    Charging RV with alternator on Truck

    Have a 2022 3500. Want to run a 6 or 4 AVG cable from Battery to a 30A DC/DC charger on the travel trailer. Anyone who have done this on a generation 5 ? I’m a little bit concerned that it might confuse all the computers that are present in the truck if 30/40 A disappear out in thin air. Did...

    DPF regeneration

    Thanks John, That explains why so many people including myself thinks that the truck never goes in regen. (On a Ford the regen message comes up independent of what info. Is activated in the cluster) Sitting looking at the DPF load display gets old. There are much more interesting displays to...

    When Is It Ok To Change To Synthetic?

    “Lifters, piston rings, crankshaft and bearings are all new designs. The block is even CGI” Is that true for both the SO and the HO?

    Cold Air Intake really though?

    I watched Banks explaining how much more air it can handle. However he never said anything about more power. i think for normal driving it will not give a significant power increase.

    DPF regeneration

    I have 2000 miles on my Ram SO 3500 2022. I have never seen a message of regen in the cluster. Nor have I seen the DPF load go above zero. (My F-250 did regen every 500 mile.) My question: Will you get the regen message independent of what display you have active on the cluster, or will...

    Those who tow a TT - will gas prices influence your travels?

    Will not change my holidays plans because of increasing fuel. Fuel is not a significant cost in the ownership of truck and travel trailer.

    Will this recall letter be available on the Mopar web site? Have a 2022 SO 3500 and the DPF gauge have never moved. Neither have I seen a regen message @ 2000 miles.
