    It's happened exactly 3 times since I've had this truck. Exiting my driveway and the 'auto lock' kicked in and locked the doors. My wife had her arm on the door(window down) and when it locked she screamed like something terrible happened. I tend to get upset when startled so there's that...I gave her the 'how in the Hell did you manage to get hurt by that?!' look. Fast forward a week or so and it happened again to her. I could not understand what she was bitching about:Violin:. So guess what happened to me the other day? Same scenario except this time it was my enormous and fantastically shredded tricep that fell victim to the door lock plunger. This thing was out for blood but I wouldn't give it up...Got a bruise, no joke. I'll never admit how much it hurt and played it off like a true man.

    Literally just happened to me for the first time. Hurt like a mother! It felt like I was getting stung by a wasp.

    Its one thing Ive noticed about my truck: the power locks (doors and tailgate) all seem pretty heavy duty at least from the noise they make.

    I try to keep my arms off the door panels.... the soft leather is easy to indent.

    I just laughed so hard reading this. Glad it hasn't happened to me yet.

    Next time I get in the truck, it will happen to me now.

    edit: Just realized this is for the 19. Maybe mine wont bite so hard?

    My wife’s 12 Charger used to do that to me every fuckin time I got in it. I hated that damn car.
    I know your pain felt it many many times.

    My 2014 Ram does it to my wife. I try to remember to lock them myself before she gets comfortable and rests her arm there.

    I'm just waiting for some moron to sue FCA over it. "Emotional distress from my arm injury" or some other B.S.

    Vehicles that bite their owners. Sorry but the descriptions and visual you get is funny. But I have noticed that all my Ram vehicles have heavy duty fast locks.
