    Never owned a dodge .. I just bought my first Ram 1500 2014 truck and did some searching and found this forum. I now have to figure how to do some mods just trying to figure what will work and what won’t ..

    Which engine does it have? I see Eco in your avatar info, but "Don't have" as the year so a bit confusing. If you have a gas motor, the PCM's on 2014 and earlier are not locked, so you can plug a tuner in without having to buy a second PCM like the 2015 and up guys have to do.

    Sorry I should have stated the engine as well .. it’s a 3.6l. I will give all details that I can
    2014 ram 1500
    SLT model with a 3.6
    With 136km yes from Canada
    Right now I am reading and trying to figure out what half of you guys are talking about. I can say I had just did the seatbelt chime mod .. next mod will be the tailgate and the fog lights on with high beam headlights..

    No worries, sounds like you're well on your way to modding it out. Not sure what there is to do on a 3.6, but I have read some that a tune will help with a little more juice and drivability. Good luck!
