Just got the Ram back. Slow leak, no oil. The bearings overheated and seized. The moral to this is to trust but verify. I've owned this thing less than 2 months. I guess that when the dealership did...

I need a front differential!

My 06 Hemi 4X4 front diff grenaded and my dealer is having difficulty sourcing a used or aftermarket unit. The factory is way too proud of a new one. Help!

If the electrical contacts on the taillight circuit board show signs of heat replace them. They're about $23 on amazon. If they're not blackened a little dielectric grease may help.
