Default what i don't like

The cruise control on the stalk is really stupid. It is totally inaccessible at night cause you cannot see what you are doing and it is also dangerous anytime you start to use it cause you have to take your eyes off the road. Really dumb, Dodge Engineer.

The cruise thing doesn't bother me....after you use it like 3 times you have it memorized and don't need to look at it. The only thing bad about it IMO is that when you press the button to turn it on/off it usually also pulls inwards like you are cancelling the setting...every cruise control I've had has been on some sort of "Stalk" or level off the column.

The first day I got my truck, I took the headrests off, put the metal part in my vise and put my shoulder to the headrest that took care of it. Now it's the way it should be.

Yeah, I didn't like the way the seat was. Way too low in the back part of the seat. So I took the two bolts out of the floor bracket and put spacers between the bracket and the floor, that raised the seat up and it feels just right. My complaint is the poor gas mileage. I would settle for less HP and get better gas mileage.

Hi there, brvheart. I put the headrest rod, the part that goes into the seat, into my vise on my work bench and bend the headrest back, one of there rods at a time. Sure, it takes a little doing but it works. Just throw your shoulder against the headrest pad a few times and the thing will bend back. In other words, GET MAD AT IT.

passenger seat belt noise for real

other than that it's good now that the rear end got replaced (21k).

the fact that I didn't get the sun roof (I know that was my fault, not the truck's)

the center console bezel glare (haven't gotten around to painting it yet)
