Just got my first Ram-Need general help
Have a few questions, hopefully you guys can help. I just bought my first Dodge last week so I'm trying to get used to things.

1. Where to get Ram vinyl floor mats? My Ram has carpet mats, and while they look great, I'm more of a vinyl guy. I would like to get legit form fitting, Ram logo, truck mats. I'm having trouble finding out where to find them.

2. Oil. The Dodge dealer near me wants 70 (Blend) 95 (Synthetic) for an Oil change. In my old Silverado, chevy has a Dexos oil that is a blended oil, that is recommended to change every 5000 miles not 3000 for 44 dollars. The local Dodge dealer doesn't have anything like that price wise or even mileage wise. So my question is should I have the Chevy dealer do my oil changes? I don't really like going to quick lubes, so let me know your thoughts here.

3. Lights. In my 2008, the headlights don't seem to turn on or off automatically. I find this a little odd . I had a 1997 F150 that did this, and that was 11 years older, my last 2 other trucks also turn on and off automatically. I must have some setting wrong. So is there a setting to have your headlights work automatically?

You can go to any ASE Certified shop to get your oil changed, keep ALL the records, DATE, Mileage, Invoice. You could do it yourself too, keep the same records

Many of the members are buying floor mats from

if you can get the ones that have the lip to either catch the liquid or the other kind that go over the door sill, i think they are the better ones
i spilled a cup of coffee & it went right into the floor carpeting, nothing to catch the liquid, it just ran off my mat

I use synthetic and change it every 6000 miles. 3000 is just too often for newer engines and the availability of better oils.
