And a 5-6 speed manual transmission WITH A REAL CLUTCH in your HEMI equipped RAM's wouldn't hurt either. Not that PS3 video game shifting automatics you make now.
Bitch motor? I guess they could crank out more horsepower if the customers stop giving a damn about things like durability, reliability and warranties. Getting 390 HP out of 5.7 liters while remaining emissions compliant was moon talk in the 90's. Don't like the way they're being built? Complain to Obama and the other hippies, tree huggers, and cry babies that are whining for lower emissions and better fuel economy.

Totally agree, RamTech. I have an awesome RAM truck for about $30,000 bucks that goes like a raped ape. I keep reading these posts about wanting these trucks to be like a top fuel dragster. If that is what you want to drive, you should be looking elsewhere. JMO.

Been to the dealer 2x and both times had them look at this and so far the pcm has left no codes and all my tires are just fine.
AMEN!!!

For the love of god do not follow suit with all the other automakers! Heres the breakdown of my 2012 Cummins and why I bought it:

Highs:
gobs of power and build like a real diesel should (Pre-urea, getting a DPF delete)
6-speed G-56 manual trans (as manual as they come, DO NOT DROP THIS OPTION!)
selectable 2wd/4wd with NO AWD, AWD gays up an HD model
solid axle front end

Lows:
non locking diff, would like to see at least one locker on the Ram
traction/stability (let me get into this further, its great you can take traction off, but why is the stability pump linked to cruise? I need to be in 4x4 low just to have all the safety bull gone... The most fun I ever had in my truck is when the pump ran a code and failed so I didnt have cruise nor stability... Thinking hard on breaking this again just so I can be done with stability!)

Long story short, as long as Ram keeps a hand-operated multi-ratio cog swapper and a foot modulated power output regulator in their trucks I''l always be loyal to Ram.
