89 octane most of the time. Once a month I fill it up with 93. Have tried 87 and my truck did not like it much. Started to ping and knock.

I run 87 and sometimes 89 but both work fine with no.issues in my 09 hemi or the 05 rumble bee. Only reason I can see for high octane like 93 is if your truck is tuned. With advanced timing and other adjustments you need the high octane to avoid pre detonation. My cars are both tuned so I have to run 93. Later when I mod tune the ram I will probably have 93 in it like the rest.
