Yes full delete. Although I don’t think anyone needs to go full delete unless they have emissions parts fail where it is more expensive to fix than to go full delete.

I’m a transporter contracted with Airstream, Forrest River, Gladiator boats, & a few others. So pretty much all day every day like a big truck. I bought the ED prior to falling into this business so yo speak. I would have bought a 3/4 diesel for the business but since I already had the ED & Airstream & Gladiator boats are not that big I appreciate the better mileage especially now with the crazy fuel prices with this administration & socialist government movement in power.

Just over 20,000 since February 1 on my 2021. Been towing travel trailer all over the country and back twice. Had the first oil and fuel filters change at 8,000 and the second at 17,000 or so. As of last week the 4 OEM Goodyear Wranglers (265/75/18) and crappy donut spare are gone. Replaced with 5 Michelins. The spare is now an identical tire on an identical matching alloy rim.

NEW RAMers: WARNING!!!!!!!
That "Full Size Spare on a Steel Wheel" is NOT what you expect. Its a narrower, lower profile donut. Don't be surprised by it out in the middle of nowhere. Especially towing off road. RAM's idea of a "full size spare on steel rim" is a crime. The spare is not only narrower and lower profile, the tread pattern is nothing you want out there in the rain or even on hard dry dirt. Its got practically no tread. What is criminal to me is that this tire was put on a $60,000 truck with a full trailer tow package.... Something like A 245/55R20. "Full size" my ares!
