Yea they're expensive & yea it's a truck not a track car. But lets analyze the whole modern truck concept here. All not just dodge are guilty of sucking up to performance hungry individuals that yearn for something more, an edge over their neighbor or friend if you will. So it's human nature to modify & tinker to gain some kind of advantage in the whole truck / car game. I see how you could say it was the tuner & rams not responsible for damages incurred after the truck was toyed w/. I agree. But in the big picture if what people say is true about modifying vehicles such as our trucks then they shouldn't offer any of the following: No raptors w/ 400 plus hp, No ram runner kits for extreme off road use, No chevy SS models that beg to spin the tire & be launched down a track. No rumble bee's, No SRT versions 10 or 8 cylinder. No typhoons & no lightenings. All trucks as per those complaining about modifications should come standard w/ an inline 6cylinder for higher torque & be available in diesel or gas. No hemi's no ford 6.2 liter's & no GM 6.0 liters. Only dull boring in line 6 cylinder engines w/ high torque numbers & the occasional 4.7 or a similar small 8 cylinder that can't be tuned or touched. No lifts, no lowering & no added trailering aids like air bags just incase you put 3lbs over the limit on the truck & chrysler refuses a warranty claim. Why not just take the whole performance market & toss it into the crapper!.
the difference is the amount of R&D chrysler puts into those hp models and they warranty them. aftermarket you take your chances.
