Mine developed the same problem this morning, except its dash vents only. Does anyone know if the recall applies to the electronic system, the manual one, or both?

I'd say we have fairly different driving conditions. It looks like you've got a 4.7L down at sea level with fairly flat terrain. I've got a 5.7L 4x4 at 4,700' elevation with hilly terrain +/- 16...

Does anyone know if this problem has ever found a fix? Several months ago I had my truck back to the dealer and complained about it again. They told me that they sent the code to Dodge and that...

1) Headlights are horrible, fog lights are more useful.
2) Front bumper rusting. Dealer claims "rock chips". Not sure how I got "rock chips" even under the plastic bumper cap.
3) Keyless entry...

I don't know if you guys are talking about real MPG or trip computer reported MPG. My trip computer is always optimistic. It seems to be about 6% high. For example, the other day I filled up with...

A friend of mine painted some aluminum wheels on his car black. As I recall he just used Rustoleum or Krylon. Scuff them with a scotch brite pad first.

It sounds like a snow job by the MFG/EPA. If I understand the above correctly, MDS provides a 5-20% increase over 8 cylinder mode IF/WHEN it operates. Since my truck is one of the early builds...

If you're in 4wd Auto (if so equipped) or in 4wd Lock then "ESP Off" is ESP and traction control all off below 40 mph (64 km/h), above 40 mph it returns to 2wd mode of "ESP Off", which is just...

This is a relief, I thought my mileage decreased after I took the truck in for updates, but I'd only had it a couple of weeks. Plus the weather turned from cool to cold, so I thought I may have just...

Yup, I was looking at the $599 special that "ends today". :i_rolleyes: Their "normal" price is $799. I'll probably pop for it unless somebody gives a negative report first.

It looks pretty nice. Can't really beat the price. Their disclaimers about weathertightness make me wonder, but this could be a case of underpromise. I've been choking at the thought of spending...

This thought occurred to me this morning as well. Most of the time I lock my truck I'm at a store with automatic doors, so it could be a coincidence. I haven't tested this theory yet. My...

Comparing 265/70R17 to a 285/75R17 in a Toyo, the 265 turns 658 times per mile, the 285 turns 614 times per mile. So in a mile, the larger size only turns 93% as many times. I would expect your...

I dunno, but I've got 390 HP that says I CAN!

Doing it in a 4wd truck on pavement would probably be a religious experience. On snow or in sand though it's doable and fun!

For what it's worth, the stock size on my truck is a 275/60R20 which translates into a 32.9x11. So height wise 33x12.50 is virtually identical. A BFG AT 33x12.50R15 is actually 32.6" high, so it's...

I'd agree with most everything said so far. Running a lower octane than recommended will increase your chances of pre-ignition (aka detonation, knocking, pinging). Your truck has a knock sensor and...
