"If the 8.4an fails is the whole truck undrivable?"

The most number of failures I have seen posted have been the radio won't cut off and it kills the battery. There have been all sorts of other things like the AC won't cut off, etc. Some have reported it can't be driven but from what I have seen cruising the forums is all sorts of random small failures leading to having to disconnect the battery nightly to prevent discharging and the radio being unusable.

Everyone was thinking it to be a software problem. Yesterday was the first I heard it to be a hardware problem - not good.

I am personally still considering my purchase and as of tonight, even considering all the radio problems, I am leaning towards going ahead with my purchase; there are a lot of things to like about these RAMS.
