    Got myself a 2015 2500 6.4, couple questions for you guys..

    Yeah it’s built into the housing. I think I paid $140 from the dealer when I did mine because it stuck open and wouldn’t get over 185.

    66rfe Limp Mode - Stuck in 4th Gear

    I have a 2015 2500 6.4 with 66rfe. I get a hard downshift from 6-5 and 5-4. I will usually just manually shift into 4th as long as I’m not on highway. Keeps the mds from kicking in and it keeps the rpms up a little but the trucks feels much better not going into 5th or 6th. A little sluggish to...

    Got myself a 2015 2500 6.4, couple questions for you guys..

    I didn’t think you could get a thermostat for the 6.4 for colder temps. It’s a completely different style than your typical thermostat. They are controlled by the computer from my understanding. I may be wrong and something has come out recently that I’m not aware of. These motors are designed...

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

    Did the premium cluster upgrade this week and a couple of weeks ago installed the airlift 5000 bags. Really like the cluster. I can see different things at one time and the air bags are night and day while pulling or hauling any amount of weight.

    You are correct. I replied to that incorrectly before I realized it was for hd trucks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Transmission pan gasket

    I just did this last year on my 2015 6.4 with 66rfe and used a gasket. It has done well so far. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Newer 2500 Driving Stability?

    This ^^. The air pressure will play big part in how it handles. I just had new tires installed on my 2500 and noticed when I picked it up felt like the front end wanted to wander a bit. Just didn’t feel right. Checked the pressure and noticed they had air them up to 65 psi in the front. Aired...

    Toyo open country AT3. They are not 35’s but can get them in that size. Only have about 300 miles on them so far. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Is this the correct Redline 5w30 to quiet the hemi?

    I agree it doesn’t seem right. I’m going to keep an eye on it. I may be able to see it if I were at the end of the oil life but not 2k into it. I pulled my camper from Ohio to Florida and back and didn’t consume any with the Amsoil. Maybe just a freak deal but we will see. I really like the...

    Is this the correct Redline 5w30 to quiet the hemi?

    Just an update on the redline 5w40. Not sure if it has anything to do with the redline oil or not but I have had to add about a half quart so far since putting it in. It’s been 2k miles so far on the oil change and was on the upper full line when done. Checked today and was down on lower mark...

    Engine light on but truck runs normal

    I will sometimes run a scan on my truck just for the hell of it and it come up with codes that don’t even trigger the check engine light. I just clear them and go on. Figure if it’s not enough to trigger a light then it’s not that big of a problem. I’ve had anything from reverse lamp under...

    6.4 exhaust manifold project

    Thanks. They resurfaced it and made sure the original was true and put it back on. Which I was good with as long as it was flat and not warped. I agree with you about not trusting many people to do the job right and the younger generation of techs. One of the reason I let the shop take of it is...

    6.4 exhaust manifold project

    Got the truck back today. Everything sounds great so far. They had to extract 3 broken studs out of the head that had broke off. Probably not the cheapest shop around but I’m not going to argue with it because I’m just glad it’s done. They charged me 840 bucks for parts, labor and tax. Most of...

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

    And that right there is what just adding a set of nice wheels and lift can do to change the look of a truck. It looks 10x better! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    6.4 exhaust manifold project

    Thanks. I questioned my own skills on this one. I normally do all my own work if it’s not something electrical. Even then I will at least look into it. If it’s mechanical or just unbolt and bolt back up I don’t usually hesitate but I knew the possibility of these breaking. Quite honestly it...

    6.4 exhaust manifold project

    I think it’s fair to say! I miss my truck right now! I’ve been driving my wife’s car and my sons Xterra while in the shop and while are nice to drive it’s nothing compared to driving my truck. Just get used to driving a bigger vehicle and feel like I’m riding on the ground. Still waiting on what...

    2018 RAM 2500 4x4 Tradesman - Shocks, gas mileage

    I don’t think you would have got any better fuel mileage out of the 1500 while pulling your camper. When I had my 1500 the 5.7 did great pulling my camper but the fuel mileage wasn’t any better doing it. The 6.4 just handles it better with less effort. You definitely made the right decision...

    6.4 exhaust manifold project

    As of right now I think it’s only my right side. The left side looks to have been done recently but not 100% sure. I don’t think it is leaking but I have been wrong before. I’ll address it at another time if so. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    6.4 exhaust manifold project

    I live just north of Cincinnati Ohio. So the winters are very harsh on the vehicles here. Surprisingly my truck isn’t bad with the rust. I bought it used and think who ever had it before me did take care of it. I try to spray the underneath every time I wash it myself so it doesn’t happen as...

    6.4 exhaust manifold project

    Thanks I’ll keep that in mind if I end up doing it. The way the first one came out and broke makes me nervous. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    6.4 exhaust manifold project

    Yeah I think it’s going to the shop. The shop I use for our work trucks specialize in heavy duty trucks. Going to check with them Monday to get a quote on doing it for me. I prefer to do work myself but I think it’s best to let a shop with all the right tools handle it. I gave it a shot but not...

    6.4 exhaust manifold project

    Well didn’t go so well. I got the bolts removed from the down pipe and started on my first bolt out of the manifold and it broke at the head. I used kroil and put some heat on it and still broke on me. Very frustrating and don’t want to break anymore. It now sounds like even more **** than it...

    2018 RAM 2500 4x4 Tradesman - Shocks, gas mileage

    I have a hikeit x9 on my truck. Look into that one. Mine was around 180.00 I think. It’s just as good as the pedal commander in my opinion. To me it really wakes the truck up from a lag stand point. My 5.7 was probably peppier than my 6.4 is but like others have said it’s just heavy. It is...
