Or are you affraid that i was right about the mds vibes...lol.
In an effort to discover this vibration you have mentioned, I stopped by my local Dodge dealer to talk with the service department. They have had a few customers complain of this vibration, and had one in their shop sporting that complaint. I spoke with the technician, and went on a test drive with him in bother that truck and mine to compare the MDS experience. End result, I have absolutely no idea what the owner is experiencing, because I was unable to detect any vibration that would be considered abnormal.
As this peaked my curiosity, I waited an extra 15 minutes to meet the owner and discuss this with him. He offered to take me for a drive (as long as he got the opportunity to ride in my Ram....I think he likes it.
), so off we went. At the point in time where he reproduced the issue, I was unable to detect any vibration, but did hear the MDS in the exhaust, so suggested that he turn up the radio a bit. His comment - "It only vibrates with the radio off".
We then took a ride in my truck. He immediately noticed how the MDS was much worse in my truck than his. I didn't correct him.....but.....after the test drive with the technician, I put my tune back in with MDS delete.
What he heard was the deep rumble of my MagnaFlo muffler, which I guess was what prompted him to say - "I sure am glad mine doesn't use the MDS at idle like yours does."
My sample size is quite small, but I will continue to look for a Hemi Ram that vibrates. I really want to experience this phenomena so I can relate to those that have it. The Service Manager indicated that he would contact me if/when they get one in that really vibrates.
OH Yah....about the other forum. Bin there, read that. To me, it's just more of the same. So far I have only 'heard' of this issue, but even those around here have yet to reproduce it for me.....other than the false positive I mentioned above.
I sure wish I could witness the trucks you have mentioned. The biggest issue I have with the internet, is it closes the communication gap real well, but does nothing to bring stuff like this physically closer, but sure presses the desire button. What we really need is an internet transporter!
