    2021 Ram crew cab etorque

    If you have your original battery that might be the issue. I would have it load tested, and evaluate the results. Not sure about the reboot. You might want to check your fuses, make sure they are seated properly. I checked mine a few months ago, and was surprised at how many fuses/modules...

    First oil change

    I would let the dealership do the first oil change. On my first OC (which was free) the dealership cracked the oil pan taking the plug out. It was replaced on their dime, but I have the feeling, if I cracked the pan on the first change it would have been my $$.

    Foggy Headlight cleaning hack

    I have an 08 Nissan Altima that I would sand and buff regularly. I finally just bought new headlight covers off Amazon for $160, and replaced the old covers. Took about 2 hours to complete (also replaced the windshield wash pump) and was pretty easy to do. No more buffing/sanding.

    Brand new RAM died in the middle of the road!

    I hope your truck dries out and starts working again. If moisture on the dash is an issue, why dont these tint shops put down a water barrier like a towel, or something?

    Oil Change frequency

    I dont put many miles on my truck, about 4k over the past year. I take my truck to the dealership each year and have the oil change and tries rotated. They use full synthetic 0W20 (with OEM filter change), and I usually have a coupon. One year it was free, this year it cost me about $77. The...

    New to Trucks - how would you upgrade?

    I like the look of your truck, but like others have said, new wheels and tires. Not a cosmetic item, I would also add a retractable bed step. I would put the remainder of the 10k in a CD and let it grow for future needs/upgrades.
