    I'm sure there are billion threads on this but search seems to be broken, no results on threads with "warranty" or "lifetime" in the title.

    Did they reinstate it or not yet?

    Not yet..........looks like 8 years/125K miles or 7 years/unlimited miles. The same as its been since November 2018. FCA has been doing great up until this virus thing so I wouldn't expect them to bring this back unless business drops off a lot more.

    7 years/unlimited miles? They'd regret giving that to me, I'll be at 250,000miles in 7 years.

    Highway miles I assume? Much easier on your truck than stop and go.

    Yeah, my 2015 just rolled over 164,000miles.
    I don't know why, but I get a kick out of how many trouble free miles I'm getting out of this truck. My Ford was driven the same way and it was having issues by 112,000miles.

    Still drives exactly like it did when I bought it brand new.

    WOW that's impressive! My old 2015 that I sold to my best friend had the cam and lifters replaced at 32K miles, B-U camera went out twice, one overhead console LED light burned out and had to be replaced and several other problems. He has 73K on it now and is talking about trading for a new truck although I don't know if it will be another RAM or not. His previous truck a 2010 Silverado had the cam/lifters go out at 99K. I think he'll probably buy a Ford next time.

    If he's looking at the 5.0 you should tell him to go to the Ford forums and read up on the 2018+ trucks. They're having it worse than anyone right now in the V8 segment.

    I have to admit that when I bought my truck back on black Friday, I bought a lifetime warranty. The dealer is offering lifetime powertrain, but based on all the electronics on the Ram, I wanted to not have to worry about anything. Cost me pretty penny but the piece of mind is worth it.
