I don't so much hear as feel something at around the same speeds mentioned.
I was wondering if it is transmission or TC related.
Does anyone know the TSB or RR number?
My truck was built Jan 18 2011. I wonder if it has the " old " TC.

I was just at the dealer this past weekend. No TSB for this yet (dealer was happy to inform me of this). There is a star case # that I found in another thread on this site which saved me a lot of explaining and visits.

Star Case # S1121000005. The release date was 6/30/11. Do a search on this forum for it as another member gives a link to a photo of the document.

My dealer told me they researched it and found no issues with the torque converter. When I gave them the star case number they seemed a little surprised and a little disappointed that they had to deal with it.

Are they going to help you out with this issue or just keep denying there is a problem?

Glad I haven't had this issue in 16,000 miles. Wonder if it's just the regular TC and not the R/T TC

is it safe to say this was addressed in the 2012 models? or could this still be a issue?

OP here. Nice torque converter video, GTyankee. That was very informative. The sound of those torque converter sections clanging together was a similar tone to the sound I'm hearing, except much more muffled.

Well, I take the Ram in to the dealer in a few minutes for the TC replacement. I'll post back here with the results.

When I drop it off I'm going to dump another problem in their laps. The brakes grab/pulsate when the truck is just about stopped. Since I'm going to be pulling a travel trailer around, I need perfect brakes.

Bill
