I think 100K miles, not abusive miles but reasonably-driven, is nothing for vehicles these days. Or at least I think it "should" be a non-event given the dollars we're paying.

I was very lucky to...

Yeah, checked Tire Rack and it's a November release. They look pretty nice, and they are rated for severe winter duty as well. I might switch to those after my Silent Armors wear out, as they're...

I feel I can add some value here as I was looking for basically the same things in a tire (lot of fishing here all over the adirondacks in all seasons). That said, I now have 127K on my Ram and am...

Yeah, I would suspect that the unit is only sold as a whole, but seems easy enough to remove and replace yourself. In a quick search, I found a new factory OEM unit on ebay for $96 with free...

Does the howl happen under light throttle and seem to go away while coasting?

If it's louder with LIGHT throttle applied id say have the pinion bearing checked. FYI I've been through three...

I've participated in a few threads on this issue (which has plagued my 2010 since new), but I've read that the various PCM flashes and even converter replacements haven't cured the issue.

Yes absolutely - I've done it both ways, and MPG for me drops by at least 1MPG with the cover off. My cover is a fitted, snap-type travel cover with support poles, so less drag I guess.

No, MDS is not engaged at idle. It's definitely not a TPS issue - it's a surging that moves the truck. Not sure how to describe, but it's different than a shaky idle - it's a bucking or pushing,...

There was a drive in theater at the Willowbrook mall before there was a mall there?

Never knew that - btw I'm local - live about 10 min from there.

Calling Transengineer - possible torque converter issue?

Hey folks -

Within the last 20K miles or so, my truck has developed a very odd condition, and I'm trying to get some guidance. I have MaxCare on the truck, so warranty coverage is not a concern....

I'll never understand why some guys treat launching/retrieving a boat as a damned race. They back in at 30mph, and then are leaving rubber as they pull away. I don't often...

Do you tow a boat with your Ram? Check in here.

Hi all -

Thought I'd start up a fun thread for those of us that tow boats - fishing or otherwise - with our Rams (hopefully I'm not duplicating threads here).

That's it!

Of course, feel...

I could go on for an hour about the rear ends. Three rebuilds on mine BEFORE the recall was done. And I am 100% confident, like you are, that when it was done the first time, they over-torqued the...
