I thought it was the road. I have one corner that always shakes the truck. What I don't like is no programmer for 2011.

This is the only thing I hate about this truck. A truck with coil springs. I had to add a timbren system (with load levers) in order to hall a 6000 lb toy hauler about 7000 loaded with the bikes.

Weird, my truck seems to be very beefy in the back. Granted I don't tow several thousands of pounds, but seems to haul well, and I tend to overload the bed of my trucks. My truck also seems to have the highest payload of any from the tables I've looked at.

Chrysler is now thinking seriously about AIR SPRINGS on the rear end of the Rams, quite a lot like on semi trucks. the front end will still be coil springs

That would be nice but I would worry about longevity. Makes me think about when ford put the air suspension on the crown vic and had a handful of issues with it.

I'm not sure of payload buy my toy hauler (desert fox) has an 800 lb tongue weight (empty) and before I put the timbren in I had the load levers adjusted to the max and it squatted way down in the rear. It pulls great now lots of power just uses lots of fuel but that is to be expected. I didn't buy it for the fuel mileage

If I had to complain about my truck it would be the body roll. I have had many trucks and they didn't have near the body roll. Another thing is the tmps, it sucks. Always blinking. Even with the right pressure. Seat belt is great. Lights suck. Look cool but suck. And the fact that the trade in value really sucks. They loose value so quick.

I love the truck. I hate the support Chrysler gives it's dealers. Long story. NO ONE from Chrysler Canada will speak to me in person & my dealer cannot get answers from Chrysler on my questions to them. Pathetic customer/dealer repore from Chrysler Canada. As much as I like the truck I would likely NOT buy another Chrysler Canada product. JMHO.

This is my 4th Ram. I have seen the improvements and changes over the years and can say this is the best truck they've created and I've owned yet.

There is always room for improvement and here are a few things I dislike:

1) The chrome molding around the floor console where the cup holders/shifter is will down right blind you on a bright sunny day. Even with sun glasses on, the angle is perfect to hit your eyes where there's a gap between your glasses and face.

2) Changing head light bulbs. Whoever designed the way these headlights are mounted needs to be shot. It should not take the kind of time and effort to do something as simple as change head light bulbs, and you shouldn't have to remove parts like your grill to make it easier. I could change the bulbs in my previous trucks before 2009 in 5 minutes or less.

3) MyGig 730n RER w/ NAV not being able to upload custom Points of Interests. These days I think it's a must have option for GPS systems.

4) Wish there was an SRT-8 option with the 6.1 or 6.4 Hemi engine option.
