It's a rarity that I see 3k RPM on my '12. Most driving (acceleration) is between 2k and 2.5k RPM.

Then again, I bought the truck, to drive, not to beat the shit out of it.

I do my best to take care of my purchases...but, as always, YMMV.

52k miles on my 08 (same front end and transmission as the 09-12s) and it has been babied and treated like a car.

Well I've gone through,
2 sets of tie rods
CV boots now spit grease
All calipers have been replaced
Ball joints squeak
OEM shocks were crap at 35k miles

actually the front end was revamped in 09 for these rams

i have a 2010 with 34k on it and do not drive it lightly, with some heavier 305/55's on it, drives beautifully

Of course it only has 1100 miles on it so far but in the couple years i've worked as a chrysler tech I can say I haven't really worked on too many rams.


Been doing the same to my Laramie haha. Love this truck but Ive seen Toyotas jacked up beside some of our rams and they do perform pretty well!

Exactly! As stated above, I don't beat the ball bag off mine, but I don't pussyfoot around either. My truck has performed flawlessly whether it has been stomping a winged foreign menace, or just driving to work. RAM makes a hell of a truck, if you ask me!
