Ok any 2012 rams that have changes to a after market converter new to speak up. I talked to Andre personally. And he said he has had at least 30 2012 rams that ordered stalls. And had 0 bad feedback. So if any of you got stalls let me know your build date on your truck. And let's figure out if there was a converter change at mid year

The reason for this was because of the Torque Converter change. the 09-11 Rams were having issues, so they fixed it with a new design. My truck has had 3 converters before the issue was finally fixed.

So if the converter that I bought from edge is the old design then do I have to get a old flex plate.

hmm, this makes me think, i have a circle d stall and i do remember the installer saying he had to use different bolts.. apparently he didnt figure it was a major concern..btw, he is a dodge tech at the dealership so im inclined to think he knows what he is doing (although not all techs do lol)
