    Do Dual 220 Amp Alternators Lessen Fuel Economy?

    Unless you are actually drawing the additional amperage from the second alternator, there is no practical additional load on the engine. Just minor additional pulley friction. If your load requirements don't require the additional alternator, don't waste your money. If you have a Limited or...

    RAM CARES and DRAG LINK RECALL !

    I just bought my 2018 2500 last month. Checking the VIN# shows it was "completed" Jan 2019. How do I find out whether it was welded or replaced? The chassis was undercoated, so even if I crawl under there, I doubt I would see a weld. The truck wasn't bought from the original dealership. Would...

    Map updates

    Crap... Truck just tried to kill me again! Twice in one day now. Had me turn right onto a street with no signs, right into traffic coming at me. Luckily, I whipped into someone's driveway. I usually use Nav as a crutch to remind me when I haven't gone some where in a while. Today I had to go...

    Map updates

    How often do they update GPS navigation? Website says maps on my 2018 2500 are up to date, but roads are wrong, and this morning, it directed me to turn into on coming traffic.

    Drop in bed liner for 6.4 5th wheel prep

    I just picked up a 2018 2500. It has a Weather Tech drop in bed liner and tail gate liner. It fits pretty well and is pretty sturdy. When I took it out to clean it, I found out I also have the fifth wheel prep. Now I have to find plugs to cover the holes too...

    camping set up with ram boxes

    Don't know what PW is, but this has worked great for me. EZ-Lift Tent. Extends out with tail gate down for more room. You could probably still access your ram box. I don't have them.

    Payload - Hitch Weight - Trailer Size Confusion

    My only hassle now is that the 2500 weighs over 6000 lbs. In NY, it has to be registered "commercial" :( , so no driving on NY Parkways. Guess who lives next to the Parkway. I just added 4 miles to get home by commercial routes. I love the 2500, but I think I also screwed myself.

    2017 Limited 1500 Rear Coils/Height

    Yes, they have worked better than expected. That 360 TW was in addition to maxing out the payload. It handled the weight so well that I haven't felt the need to put the stiffer springs on. They act like helper springs. Easy to put on too. Didn't even jack up the truck, just crawled under and put...

    TOW/HAUL and OVERDRIVE Explained!!

    I use tow/haul in my 17-1500 - 5.7 all the time. Almost always at or over gvwr. Engine braking is the main benefit for going down long steep grades. Definitely helps from over heating the brakes. Hold the brake peddle until it downshifts the release brake peddle. It will stay in that gear until...

    Towing Advice

    You're renting the correct size truck to move it, then once you're there you want to know if you can pull it with the wrong size truck. I think you answered your own question before starting. All of those numbers are estimates. Only the scales will tell you the truth. Could you tow it one time...

    Did you use the VIN# or manual calibration for the set up? I'm having a hard time setting mine up.

    2017 Limited 1500 Rear Coils/Height

    Just an update... The sumo springs are great! They barely touch the axle plate, so I still have a cushy ride when unloaded. With 360 lbs of tongue weight, it only dropped 3/4" and rides firmer with no clunking over bumps. I would recommend them to anyone.

    Payload - Hitch Weight - Trailer Size Confusion

    Well, the Corona Virus put a big damper in my plans and trips, but I have learned a lot in the mean time. I packed up the truck for camping and towing the boat, I went to the scales. GVWR is maxed without the trailer, so overloaded by whatever tongue weight I put on. GCVWR with boat still...

    Brake upgrade

    I had 40K on the truck and the rear rotors were shot (deep groves but not warped). Front was OK but not smooth. The Powerstop pad and rotor kit made braking night and day. I never realized how deteriorated my braking was. The only problem was getting the old rotors off. Road salt up here is a...

    2017 Limited 1500 Rear Coils/Height

    Thanks all, I decided to try out sumo springs. I've just had no luck with air bags and leaks over the decades. Besides, I really like the cushy stock spring ride when not loaded. I'm gonna load it to the max and tow the boat to the scales this weekend. I'll have the weight loaded and some...

    2017 Limited 1500 Rear Coils/Height

    It seems, the more I learn, the less I know :) I'm trying to set this up for towing and can't decide if I should/need to change the rear coils. I bought the truck new, so I know no one has made any changes. I printed out a build sheet of my VIN from a web link, but it lists the options...
