alright, just got in from screwing around with the lights.. rewired the connectors, and terminated the grounds all the way back to the battery. both lights now turn on but they start flickering randomly which is caused by the relay energizing and de-energizing. Anyone know what would cause the relay to cycle like this? i am assuming it is because the headlight signal is not 100%?? would connecting the signal to switched power be my last resort? Anyone have any knowledge with this issue?

Default Torque converter replaced already on 2011 Laramie

So I had my converter replaced already (18k on the truck only )! Thought I would escape the disaster of the torque converter issues with these trucks ! But nope not so lucky ! Why they put these cheap pieces of junk in boggles my mind ! On the good note the dealer I deal with was super amazing and he had the most current one installed and my truck back to me in 2 days! Runs like a 60 k truck should now . Anyone else had this issue yet ?

TC issue? what's the symptom of it? My truck has been shifting like an old drag car and it's getting really annoying.

Yea the shifting is really horrible , doesn't downshift and unlock the tc around 70 km/h, there's a shudder / noise when highway cruising between 70-100 especially under load . It goes away when u turn on tow/ haul mode . It's actually a huge problem with the 2011's. definitely a recall since there's a bulletin on the dealers service page. it's a super annoying issue and kills your gas mileage as well . Even worse when cold .

Hmmmm I've noticed a shutter when stopped. The truck comes to a stop, and about 2 seconds after a dead stop the truck shutters and almost lurches forward.

That's what I was thinking. I have the large tank on my truck so that could be the culprit.

I am however going to do the same shift solenoid swap as I did in my Challenger. I installed the blue top Mercedes AMG solenoids in my Challenger, I removed the brown tops and installed the blue tops. Firmer more solid shifts.
