Default 4th gen electrical fires???

My buddy just told me I better sell the ram before it burst into flames... He's a chevy guy so nothing he says really matters, but he sent me a pic of his friends 2013 r/t that burnt to the ground from a electrical fire under the dash. Anyone hear of more cases of this???

I've seen one other case on here but other than that I've never heard of Ram's having issues with electrical fires.

Well this is the 2nd one I have heard of out of the half a million or so 4th gens manufactured. Nothing to worry about.

I agree. I just wanted to see how many have been out there. I'd still rather drive a ram on fire than a chevy!

Actually, I drive a Ram BECAUSE I had one catch fire with me in it. I like my SuperDuty as well though.

One of the MotorTrend guys here in Dallas had one get toasty on him while driving up highway 75. It wasn't until the 4th or 5th passer by honking at him that he took the hint that he was about to be the truck's marshmellow. He got it stopped and made it out OK.
