    That looks like half a fifth wheel RV in your bed! I'd look at a set of Pacbrake air bags.

    What did you do with your 5th Gen this week?

    Picked it up from the dealer today with a new gas tank installed. I stopped to get gas and it worked perfect. It looks as though it has a new filler tube as well, though its not on the paper work.

    new hemi tick video, recommends hellcat oil pump

    Estop disable

    I've not seen that device. I believe if you manually select 8th gear with the selector, or put it Tow Haul, it shuts it down.

    Mine has developed an increasingly frequent vibration or drone, when the truck is moving and letting the truck coast. It almost feels like a bad ujoint or exhaust drone.
