2009 Dodge Ram 1500 QC, purchased in February 2009
86,000+ miles right now & about to leave on a 7,000 mile trip next week

original brake pads look good, some sign of ridges on rear rotors
one exhaust manifold had cracked, replaced under warranty
recall on 2 intake manifold bolts
needed a few Flashes for updating software
rubber along roof line was lifting, needed some adhesive, no charge
didn't like Goodyear Wrangler tires, not gripping the road as i thought they should, replaced with Michelin LTs
Shock Absorbers have reached that point, where they need replacing

still getting 17.4 MPG highway, sign down, flags & lights removed, with all my tools & equipment, the truck is 1,000 pounds heavier then stock

picture with sign down


work mode, i get 15.7 MPG


what is in my bed, usually hidden by soft tonneau cover

still stock pads....nice living in "flat orlando"..
Indeed! They are very thick still too, I'll easily get 100k miles out of them, maybe even closer to 150k. I also brake very easy.

Build date was Sept '08. Just cracked 44k. Only problems were a rear pinion seal leak and a stripped out blend door motor for the HVAC system.

Original tires, brakes and battery. Exhaust sounds much better as she ages. If I am not mistaken the first few months built came with the sport muffler.

Enjoy it just as much today as the first time I jumped into the drivers seat.

115k miles problems were exhaust manifold bolts on right side and heater box door actuators all 3 of mine broke...but living in PA that is expected. you go from heat to ac and then back to heat all in one day. and that old girl is driven hard we just had eco boost for lunch.
