0007, I think you are incorrect. I owned a 08 Tundra with the drivetrain clunk. Most (not all) of the clunk was removed with adding grease to the yoke. I just drove my 2010 Ram. What everyone is feeling is not the Toyota drivetrain clunk. I belive the other posts are correct, its the gas tank. Like the Tundra clunk, no big deal, just a little annoying. At least we can prevent it by keeping the tank full. (Gook luck with that)

Ha ha gas sloshing in the gas tank makes perfect sense now doh! So glad its not a drive train issue. I have the 32 gallon tank, just filled it up this morning and no bump. I'll have to pay attention when she's 3/4 full.

Guys.. My truck has been back to the dealer 3 times and Chrysler headquarters got involved. Hunter Dodge confirmed that all of their 2010 Dodge Rams with the 32 gallon tank do this with 3/4's of a tank. So Chrysler engineers told them that if all the trucks are doing it then there is no fix..Wasted my time and money trying to get this fixed. I guess this is what I get for switching back to American finally...Aggrivated Dodge Ram owner... Trust me if the truck would have done this on the test drive I would NEVEr have bought this truck.. Other than that is a great ride. I don't even think DODGE is trying to figure out how to fix this!!!

Very interesting because the Chargers experience this condition also. Some more severe then others. I've experienced this twice with the Charger. Sitting at a light when all of a sudden it feels like you were rear ended. MY buddy also has a Charger and his was more severe - dealer was no help.. We assumed it was the trans. Still curious if this is fuel related since the CHarger has 2 fuel tanks..

The LX body cars have one fuel tank that is saddled across the drive shaft.

My understanding is that the 26 gallon fuel tank does not do this. Is that correct? if so, I wonder why Dodge doesn't give us the option to have the 32 gallon tank replaced with the 26 if we desire. I am with you in regards to purchasing this truck. If this had happened on the test drive I would not have bought the truck. I reported this to Dodge yesterday and the person I spoke with said that was the first they had heard of the problem. Go figure.

There have to be two different things going on here. Liquid sloshing around when you come to a stop making a light thud noise from the rear is NOT the same as the 'feels like I was hit from behind' driveline thunk that is happening to some. As I mentioned elsewhere, the latter issue has been around with the HEMI and 545RFE trans since at least my 2005 Grand Cherokee. With that issue, it actually makes the vehicle move against the brake AFTER the vehicle has been stopped for a second or longer. My guess is that the Chargers with the issue also have that engine/trans combo.

I was searching for the clunking/thud after stoppping and came across this thread. I to have a 2010 Ram 1500, less than week old.

It happens only when I break hard, if I am coming to a light and it changes and have to stop sudden, then there is the thud about 1 second after a complete stop. If I stop slowly and hardly use the break nothing happens. I thought it would be the hill start assist engaging as it only happens when I press the break hard. but then as some have said 3/4 tank does it too. As it seems to have started around the 3/4 tank mark.

Cause the dealership let me take it over night before I bought it, the truck only had 1/4 tank, and ran perfect. After taking possesion I filled up the truck and it still ran perfect, now at 3/4 of a tank it seems to be doing it. As I am not the only person with this problem, I will see what happens when I get down to 1/2 tank and so on.

I have no idea what size tank I have, is there a way of finding out? I pay 1.14 per litre in gas, and it took about $120-$125 to fill so I am going to assume the 121 litre tank, is there away to actually confirm this?

I believe you can find out by looking at the window sticker that was on your truck, look at the OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT part, about 5 lines up from the TOTAL PRICE,

another thing that you can do is, take that window sticker into the dealerships parts dept., it has the VIN # on it, request a print out of what your truck came with, my print out was 3 pages long & has everything that was on my truck when i drove it off the lot, including their code for the parts.
like NFX 32 gallon fuel tank
