My two biggest peeves with this truck are the crappy cruise controls. (Couldn't figure out how to make that part of the EVIC?) The other is the fuel tank slosh, which sometimes feels like you have been rearended by a small car. All RAM owners with the 32 gallon fuel tank will agree the slosh is annoying. (Again, they're too cheap to throw a couple baffles in the tank...) Otherwise.... I love it!

Hey just FYI I believe that clunk is not the tank but the HSA. Some other's have made the same comment as me that once they turned the HSA off the clunk went away. I have the smaller tank and had the clunk at random times, then turned the HSA off and haven't had the clunk for over 6 months.

Headlights are way to dim, and sometimes on the highway there is a surge like I just got rearended when I am in cruise control, I have had that seatbelt rattle happen too.

I guess the main thing is I have had the truck for a year and four months and it has had three rearend rebuilds, one water pump replacement and a leaking rear end cover.

Not so once you remember what does what. I hated it at first but now I prefer it as everything is controlled by one finger. Button on/off, down set, up resume, pull to disable.

Headlights ARE too dim
Seatbelt Rattle
Trim glare
Why does anyone still use full-size 12v outlets?
Smaller rear seat room
Dumb pockets on the sides of the center console that are thinner then my fingers.

Despite the annoying seatbelt rattle (address by adjusting the passenger seat) and transmission getting stuck in 4th twice (repair and replacement resulting), I've LOVED my truck until I recently got a Hemi tuneup at 30k miles. Not as much that the dealer charged over $500 for the service but more that now mpg sucks and it seems underpowered (downshifts much more frequently and higher RPMs just to maintain 70mph). Feels like there's constant resistance almost like it did when towing a trailer (prior to this tuneup in tow mode).

Taking it back in but expect this to be the start of a long saga given initial explanations of "reflash of settings means truck is relearning my driving pattern". When new it didn't drive like this so this explanation doesn't make sense to me.

The fact I couldn't get it in a 5 or 6 speed manual is about the only thing I didn't like about mine. I'll live though. The rest of the positives make it easier to overlook.

OPEN DIFFS ON A 4 WHEEL DRIVE TRUCK IS BEYOND STUPID IMO. I know most manufacturers do this too, it's false advertizing so KNOCK IT THE F--K OFF!
