    ABS Issue Update at NHTSA - Recall looks promising

    I'm over 50 years old. I learned to drive a long time before cell phones were around and sure as hell didn't have cruise control on my first several vehicles or any of them I put a couple hundred thousand miles on for Uncle Sam in my time. Perhaps you don't mind critical components taking a...

    ABS Issue Update at NHTSA - Recall looks promising

    Thank you for posting the update. I'm in the same situation having not enjoyed my cruise control on two separate 2000+ mile trips now over the past 18 months. I also just about put it in a ditch a month ago trying to get out in to a short opening in traffic, glad there wasn't a cop around as I...

    FCA emissions recall 67A

    I won't be taking mine in for any recall related to this crap. Mainly as it ****** me off to no end that we have an American company being fined billions of dollars by our own government for something their competitors in China and India don't pay any attention to. Who do you think is going to...

    66rfe valvebody failure

    My 18 is closing in on 90k relatively trouble free miles. We just replaced the solenoid packs in our 2012 1500 at 140k. Is this common enough that I should consider swapping in some new components before experiencing any issues? I don't do a lot of towing and I baby the truck most of the time...

    NHTSA finally opens ABS/HCU investigation

    After 10 months of listening to that annoying dinging I finally pulled the fuse and shut it up before a 2k mile fishing trip to Canada last month. The red brake light, ABS and TC lights are on all the time but the noise and disruption to the EVIC display are gone. I'm basically giving up on it...

    Drag link recall performed without notice - now steering wheel misaligned!

    They'd be cutting those welds and correcting it or replacing the parts to make it right. I had my truck aligned at the dealership and found the same issue. I made it a block down the street before turning around and taking it back. Took all of 15 minutes to straighten out the steering wheel.

    2017-2018 2500/3500 brake system issues

    I reported mine months ago but good on ya for making sure people do. Mine's been out for coming up on a year now.

    2017-2018 2500/3500 brake system issues

    I'm getting ready for an 1800 mile round trip and would prefer not to listen to the annoying alarm going of for this issue every 15 seconds. Does anyone know which fuse I can pull to silence it? I looked on the lid of the fuse panel and it looked like there may have been a couple possibilities.

    2018 Failed ABS HCU Teardown

    Thanks for the info, mine is doing the same and that makes sense. I thought it was likely a busted solder joint but perhaps not.

    Anyone tried the ball joint delete option?

    Stumbled across this option on Youtube and hadn't seen it before. I haven't checked mine yet but the steering has been a little wonky and the steering column insert bearing option only made a slight improvement. I've got 85k on it and have been running wide 35's since it had 5k on it. Not...

    Busted drag link

    Just had mine replaced under warranty today. Glad it happened while parking and not on the highway!

    NHTSA finally opens ABS/HCU investigation

    Does anyone else who is experiencing this issue have it come and go? It's almost as if mine is made worse by bumpy roads. We had warm dry weather here today so I took my 2500 on a 3 hour round trip to pick up a new kayak. When I started the truck both lights were on but I wasn't getting the...

    NHTSA finally opens ABS/HCU investigation

    I've had my 2018 2500 parked for months due to this issue. I fire it up and drive (very carefully) around the country roads to get everything up to operating temp on occasion to hopefully prevent the batteries from dying and to keep everything lubed up. Mine went out when I went to accelerate...

    2018 RAM 2500 ABS module and the Hydraulic Control Unit

    I suspect mine is failing as well. It decided to let me know when I was on the interstate in a light rain and went to accelerate/pass. You get some strange looks and some thumbs up when you kick an 8000lb truck sideways at 70mph and somehow manage to stick the landing without losing but a few mph.

    Anyone using Wix fuel filters for the 6.7l?

    Just ordered a FS53000. This is the last truck I hope to ever purchase so I'm trying not to chance much of anything. Thanks for the responses gentlemen.

    Anyone using Wix fuel filters for the 6.7l?

    I ordered a package off of Amazon with a Mopar oil filter but both fuel filters were Wix. The rear filter was exactly like OEM but the front fuel filter looked very different from the OEM. The OEM has an oval opening in the bottom with an O ring, approximately 1" x 1/2". The Wix was wide open...

    Who all uses their trucks like a truck!? Let’s see pics!

    Seems like mine always has one of the two trailers on it.

    I want 37's, what are the consequences?

    I definitely don't fit into that category. I love my truck lifted and with 35's, I think it would look better with 37's but don't want to stress the drive train too much. It handled the 35's like there wasn't a change and I like the way the truck handles with the Thuren Overland suspension and...

    Appreciate the feedback gentlemen

    I want 37's, what are the consequences?

    I misspoke, it appears I have the 3.42 gears in my 2500, not the 3.92s.

    I want 37's, what are the consequences?

    I still have the factory spare under the bed. Don't ask me why, I wouldn't put it on if I had to.

    I want 37's, what are the consequences?

    Here is a pic of what I saw when I looked over while driving out to hunt a week ago. I think it may have been an omen. I know it was a suggestion. :anitoof:

    I want 37's, what are the consequences?

    I'm creeping up on new tire time and I'm starting to obsess about moving from 35's to 37's. I've got an 18+4 14k lb tilt bed trailer and an aluminum slant load 3 horse trailer. Aside from the unlikely possibility of towing my best friend's camper, I don't see me ever towing heavier loads with...
