Default Brake Concerns

I have a 2010 Ram 2500 TRX heavy duty. When applying the brakes on a rough road surface or rail road tracks the brakes seem to fail. I am not sure if this is due to the tires leaving the pavement or this is actually a break failure. I had similar issues with my 96 ram 1500. Has anyone else had a similar experience?

By the sound of it it seems to be the tires leaving the pavement. If you had brake failure it would happen under any type of pavement. You will either have to give the springs and shocks time to break in or take it to the dealer. I don't know how bouncy these new trucks are supposed to be. Trucks are always inherently more bouncy than cars.

I wouldn't consider it to be a brake failure, between the ABS and traction control, if the tires begin to spin, they'll kick in and try to slow the rotating. If you're hitting really rough road, then you're running into contact issues. The tires (and brakes) can't stop if there's nothing to generate friction against.

Is the 2500 still a leafspring setup or did it switch to a coil as well?

i would turn the esp off. if the abs is engaging it might seem like there is no pedal because the abs is already braking

The 2500 is coil up front and there is no esp to turn off. I do not think the TRX's come with esp. My old 1500 had a solid front axel, might be inherent of the solid front axel. I would also think I am not the only person that is experiencing this.

I'd like to know a bit more about what you are feeling. Is the pedal spongy? Does it feel like it takes too long to slow down? Are these hard stops/panic stops or just normal braking?

It is a hard stop, not a panic stop. I haven’t noticed a change in the feel of the pedal, feels like there are no brakes so my natural reaction is to push harder on the pedal with no change breaking power/performance. If it was a panic stop the car in front of me would have my front bumper in their back window.

wow yeah that doesnt seem like stability control. and shows how well i pay attention i didnt see it as a 2500. the only other thing i can think of is to lock em up to test and see if all 4 wheels have brakes.

MADDOG, forgot to add it does feel like it takes a lot to get this pig to stop. I am not too impressed with the braking system. With as much as this thing can hall I would expect that unloaded it would stop on a nickel, too big to stop on a dime LOL
