I hate that I don't have enough money to get all my mods all at once. And that's all I got to say about that.

Head rests are ridiculous! There are several fixes. 1) Turn them around 2) Put them in a vise and bend them (not me) 3) I rarely have anyone in the back seat so I swapped the rear ones to the front. Also greatly improves rearward visibility. I plan to eventually buy two rear ones. If anyone is back there they really need them cause they will hit the window with their head. I'm sure the insurance institute will not agree with me but I think the rear on the front provide more than adequate protection. The fronts are bent forward so in a collision your head is kept forward (not rocking front to back) which is the main cause of whiplash.

The tpms for the 2500 sucks the big kahoonah. You have to buy E-rated tires which severely limits your choices in 20" sizes. Light Load must be 60 fr 40 r. I don't remember how I managed it but I had them 50 F&R until it got cold and they lost a couple lbs of pressure setting off the low air warning.

The shutter when hitting rough close together bumps had been alayed quite a bit by running 50 psi and I think even more so from installing Bilstein's all the way around. Scared the crap out of me the first time. Thought I was gonna jump into the oncoming lane. I had an 8800 lb 2000 2500 that had a much stiffer suspension and it never did that crap.

I also didn't like the body roll and lean in while braking going into a turn. I installed a Hellwig BIGwig and problem solved. Still doesn't go around a turn as well as my 2000 QC, but I have a CC and the wheelbase is considerably longer.

The sun visor is dumber than hell too. If you're driving with the sun low it has a large area not shaded. DUH!!!

It really stumbled, hesitated and lugged when it was new. It still upshifts too soon causing the lugging, but the throttle response has improved. Guess it learned when I press on the gas I want it to go. Another DUH!!! I'll buy a Trinity after I get the stereo done.

Alpine and Ram ought to be shot for calling their sound system "premium"! If you're gonna amplify a system how bout putting some power in the box??? Very weak and for the premium price paid expensive proposition to upgrade. Pathetic Alpine...shame on you! You definitely knew better so why would you put your name on this crap?

After adjusting my headlights they are much better. Still weak on the high beams though. I'll be changing out the bulbs shortly. Pretty damn dumb process to get to them though.

Otherwise , I really do love my truck.

The only thing I dont like about mine is the passenger seatbelt buckle. Man, it drives me nuts.

The one thing some guys complain about that I find hilarious, is towing gas mileage. What truck doesnt that happen with? I have yet to find one.

That radio thing wears me out too man.. I spent a while trying to figure out to set my Uconnect up. Only to find out I cant.. lol.

I had a hard time swallowing the $29,750 MSRP for a regular cab 2WD... but I love the regular cab and they didnt have one in a 4x4 with the options I have... Heck I can manage without 4x4.. I only need it maybe 3 to 4 days a year here in OK because of bad weather.



I knew this.. and I have a 2WD.
Good to see another forum member in the 918!!

I can deal with all my issues:
- new torque converter
- main body wiring harness needed to be replaced after it was two months old
- new foglight because they kept getting water in it
- mds lifters on passenger side all replaced
- drivers front door window replaced 2 times due to scratches
- drivers door rusting where the door panel rubs on the bottom of the door
These headlights are best I've had and haven't had problems with anything else but I have so many creaks and rattles whether it's winter or summer and it drives me crazy

Dang thing sheet metal. Can't believe I munched the hood by pressing it to close.

The radio is cool but a hazard to use while driving. Voice commands suck. No normal play lists. Hate trying to search for music on the hard drive.

Canbus. I hate that crap.

As far as the oil filter I like where it is. I can reach it standing beside the truck. Love that.
