Yeah I found something written in double-speak that said exactly that. I'm just going to go through USAA instead. I'll be calling HQ to complain for sure though, to go from 1.75% to 8.43% is a slap...

I don't carry load, but I have noticed the typical rear shimmy you experience in a truck. it's not bad, but it really kills the smoothness of the independent coil suspension. It's a cute little sway...

Yeah, I drove it on the interstate home from the dealer. It's fine. Just baby it a little bit for the first 1 or 2 hundred miles. You don't have to baby new engines as much as people think you do....

Headers are definitely a PITA to install. They may not be too bad on the Hemi since it looks like there's some wiggle room in there. When I put longtubes on my LS1 I paid a shop to do it. Lol.

That's awesome! My dad had a new Ranger a year before I was born. Then bought a new 2000 Sierra. He recently got a new TSX because he commutes to DC everyday. When I told him I wanted a truck he kind...

Be sure not to touch them after you clean them, as the oils from your hands will transfer to the wheels and leave you with either poor adhesion or a fish eye effect on the final product. Good luck!...

I say go 2012. The 13's are temping I know, but that 8 speed tranny just sounds like a headache to me. I honestly don't even like the 6 speed that I have in my 2012 Ram. I just purchased my Ram for...

The only problem with cut outs is they are illegal in every state. I would love a full exhaust set up with a cut out so I can run open headers when I want, though.

Haha alright awesome. So I guess the only difference between selecting 5th in ERS and hitting T/H is ERS disables MDS, whereas T/H changes shift points and increases engine braking. I think I got it...

Oh ok. Well just FYI check out the SLP Loudmouth 1 resonator. It's literally an expanded piece of pipe with nothing inside. It looks like a muffler though so technically you can point at it and say,...
