Default I can't find the 5 year check on lifetime

I have been reading on here about everybody talking about the 15,000, 30,000 and 60,000 service, then the 5 year check up for life-time max. I can't find it in either of my owners manuals and or the lifetime PDF. I change my oil every 3000 at the dealer with the works package every 2nd trip for rotations and fluid checks. I know the schedule says 7500 miles. I'm trying to start every 4000 miles if I can. It's hard to change old habits. But I just don't see any of these numbers anywhere. Could somebody please show me where they are at? Thanks!

Don't have the lifetime warranty, but it could be an option in the future. I know many members who do have the option and probably would know more about it. I would check your warranty brochure for some info on it.

Its not in the manual, keep all records of maintenance. Chrysler will send a letter regarding the 5 year inspection, usually sending them out 3 months till cut off.

My '09 factory warranty was 3 year, 36000 miles
just before the 36000 miles was up, i bought the Extended Lifetime Max Care Warranty

i never got any notice from Dodge & no one at the dealership told me it was time to consider an Factory Extended Warranty
I happen to over hear a Service Writer telling a friend about it & i just about ran the the guy that writes the Warranties, i told him that i wanted an factory extended warranty & he told me about my options

That's correct. I have the limited lifetime power train warranty and it is in my owner's manual about having my truck inspected every five years. You have 60 days either side of your in-service date to have this inspection done. For example, my truck's in-service date is 3-27-08 so 60 days before that date and 60 days after to get it inspected. Mine passed so good for another 5 years.

i will be reaching the 5 year time period for the factory lifetime drivetrain warranty in February, i will have them check my Ram out completely then
