    Dealer said No for transmission fluid change.

    I got the same answer back in the day. Mine is a '17 1500 5.7 and I changed it at 125k with Amsoil. I currently have 278k on it with no issues - truck is running strong except for the Hemi tick from broken manifold bolts.

    Manifold bolts breaking.

    I have a '17 Crew 5.7 and also have the exhaust manifold bolt issue. Had Endurance and they denied the claim. I currently have 230k on the truck and just put up with it. With regular maintenance I never had any other issues.

    RamBox worth getting?

    Unless you need all of the bed space all the time I will never get one without it. Waterproof, locks with the fob, built in lighting, drain port for use as a cooler. My truck is my portable office and I keep all of my field equipment in them. For me it frees up the back of the cab for people, my...

    Did a test drive in a 2020 Rebel and was... disappointed

    Sluggish..... recently viewed an article that FCA has filed a patent for an in line 6 producing 525 HP. Should be interesting...... Take the cheap route and add a Pedal Commander to decrease the lag time.
