I read a post above about BURNT TAIL LIGHT connectors
Both of mine are almost black, definitely too much heat back there for some reason

I have no other mod, except the catch can, my rotating orange lights, & a auxiliary fuel tank with a electric pump

This is sounding less and less like a tune problem and more and more like a BCM (Body Control module) with a bad connection or defect, JMO

Man that can suck Clifford with just picking up your truck after your Service Department just made repairs. You know, a question I always ask is, exactly what was done to the vehicle prior to the problem occurring. I remember you saying you having a Y pipe welded on so maybe your truck did suffer an electrical spike to one of the control management systems. Or one more thing for thought, a very long thread ago I remember one Ram owner found their running issues pertained to a short in the wire harness that routed through the driver side firewall. Just some food for thought and hopefully you get your truck healthy again.

Replaced all my Lights on the truck with LED's, 1 year now, no black or overheated sockets everything is clean. Just a bit more info, food for thought.
