I traded my 09 a year ago with 160,000kms or 100,000miles
Sport 4x4 crew cab in bright silver 3:55 gears
Had the pinion nut back off and grenade rear , exhaust bolts snap off, control arms replaced, then the repaired rear pinion nut backed off an additional 3 times and was awaiting recall when traded.

What did I trade on??!!......

A 13 Sport of course with 8 spd and 3:21 gears
For those on the fence about the new trucks (13-14) and are unsure about upgrading to a newer model year, all I can tell you is I loved my 09 but this 13 they are gonna have to pry out of my hands.
Best vehicle I have ever owned PERIOD! And I have had quite a few over the years.
25,000kms so far and not a hiccup ( knock wood) lol
Runs 15.2 @ 91 mph and averages 900kms a tank

I see NO REASON you can't get 250,000 MILES from one of these fourth gen trucks.

Although mine isn't an 09', (2010 RCSB 4x4 Sport)
it was because I usually wait one model year to see if there are any bugs.

My 10' is four years old this week, and normally that's when I trade up.
But this one is a keeper at over 500WHP now, 0-60 in 4 seconds flat.
Quarter mile in the 12's and that's darn good for a 5300lb brick with 4WD and 3.55's

BTW, just over 40k kms (25,000 miles) and only 899 engine hours.



the 14's are nice, but I wouldn't even trade straight across to get one.

My '12 is at almost 71,000 km (44,000 miles). No mechanical issues. Has been in service for 27 months. Diff fluids changed at 42,000 km, plugs changed at 52,000 km along with regular oil changes and air filter. Will need front brakes soon as they are at about 20%. Was very happy with it but just sold it.

Hope to be back with a Ram one day, perhaps a 2015. Peace.

Well I bought my 09 in May of 2011 with 12k miles; I now have just over 80k.

Love the truck; biggest repairs were a new front brakes when one locked up and new condenser for the air conditioning. Both were taken care of under warranty. The first while I was driving through VA the day after Christmas a couple years ago and the latter with 45 miles left on my 80k extended warranty while I was on a vacation in Florida in April.

The only thing I don't really like about my truck is the dealer who sold it to me. Other dealers have gone out of their way to help me out but my dealer just seems like they want to stick their hand in my pocket and steal my wallet lol.

09 TRX4 I'm at 81k on it. Only issue is was the heater blend door, the pinion nut recall which they did a complete rear end kit on and due to previous owner the number 8 injector had to be replace.

Love my '14 Longhorn! Only has 7k miles but by far the finest riding vehicle we've ever owned. The only problem so far is all my new friends that have something to move, but they've become expectant of my consistent answer. NO!
I look forward to years of cruising in this one.
My brother in Michigan has a '13 3500 4x4 mac-daddy that he works like a Ram every day with about 30k on it. He has had no issues and loves it more than any chevy or ford he has owned over the years, and he has owned a lot of trucks.

So far i have 118,500 miles on my '09
replaced the right rear tail light bulb 2 times
3rd brake light bulb once
left low beam headlight once

the other things were mentioned earlier

the transmission rear seal is beginning to leak
i have been advised to do a throttle body cleaning, i did it at about 40,000 miles, guess it is due again, it will be done by a ASE Certified shop
