The only thing have discovered about my '98 ram 1500 is it takes me into the mountains and brings me home. Thru mud/snow/rock slides and flooded creeks. No surprises. Everything works as it should from the day i bought it. Best dam ram.

remote express front window down, using the Key FOB, you press the unlock button twice holding the button down on the second press and the front windows will open remotely. once they are opened to the desired height you just release the button. but of course i think this is in the manual.

The remote down feature for the front 2 windows is only available in the 2009-2011 model year. They did away with it for 2012. The reason?
People were complaining about coming out to their trucks after a day at work and the windows being down, or some other nonsense like that. They did away with it because people didn't know how to use the feature. I loved it on my 2010 1500. Never a problem. I never accidentally rolled them down or anything. It was probably just enough people complained about it to make them take it off. I miss it. It's as good as remote start I think, on a nice hot day, roll them down a bit before you get in.
I also like the 3 click lane change turn signal. I use it all the time.

I"ve found that after a long road trip my truck has the ability to put a HUGE smile on my face... this happens consistently

I think I discovered a secret that most people in the nations capital area haven't discovered yet.

That skinny pedal on the right...makes the vehicle go! HOT DAMN. who woulda thunk. I wonder if that is in the manual?

I read about this in the manual (I fell asleep reading it from cover to cover the entire week after purchase).. I bookmarked the page and tried it the next day.. simply one of the best, coolest and most practical features in my Ram!

last year i found out that I get a warning chime when my turning signal has been on to long while the vehicle is in motion (2-3 miles?). First time i heard it after owning the vehicle for almost 10 years.

With my 2007 Ram 1500 Hemi I found that the more I haul & or tow the faster the fuel gauge drops.

I was upgrading my 2009 RER radio with a newer version & also up dating my Navigation
My Ram was parked in my driveway & i don't live in the best neighborhood, so leaving the doors unlocked is an invitation

I had 2 CDs, one for each thing that i was doing
The was a warning that neither of the processes could be interrupted once started
I did the radio update, only took a few minutes
Then i started the Navigation map update & it seemed to go on forever
long story shortened, i had to stop the process & i caused the whole radio to go out, with the CD still in the player.
I tried everything, doing key dances, radio On/Off, doors open, doors closed, looking for a place to insert a paper clip to eject the CD, etc.

Then i remembered something that i had read about the Climate Controls & the Radio being some how tied together. With the key on, i started pressing & turning the Climate Control knobs & the CD ejected !!!
Everything worked again, i went into the house & got my spare FOB
I then restarted the Nav Map process & locked my Ram using the spare FOB & let update run, i just checked on it every once in a while. After quite some time, the process was completed & the screen displayed the prompts that i had to follow
