Default V10 maintenance

Hey so I looked in the owners manual and the service manual for my truck (96 2500 v10 4x4) I wanted to make sure everything was up to date. I noticed that there didnt seem to be anything other than plugs, wires, air filters, and fluid/filter changes for my motor. The manual has you do checks and replacements on other engine parts but only for the 5.9. (EGR PCV, ect..)Does anyone have a thought?

Default Factory Service Manual

I downloaded a factory service Manual for my 1998 for less than $20 bucks from ebay. PDF format. The real deal. I saw one for 2001 Ram also.

You are going to want to grease your Zerk fittings on all suspension components, your drive lines and while you are down there, look around for things that seem a miss. loose wires, frayed cables, rust, loose bolts and any leaks. If you feel Ram-bunctious, check out your brakes and tires (air pressure and wear).
