  1. ASK A DODGE RAM TECH!
    Alright so check this out. I was driving my 2005 ram 1500 Hemi home from work and it was raining a little. I stopped at a light and all the sudden the battery gauge died, and the motor had no power. However, the motor was still running but I just had no throttle response. I quickly shut the...
  2. Suspension
    Recently I've been feeling a sway in the rear of my truck. Mostly when switching lanes on the highway or making turns I feel the rear sway a little after the turn. Almost feels slightly like I'm about to drift or fishtail but it's just the body/suspension that moves. Do 05 Rams have stock rear...
  3. Dodge Ram Wheels And Tires
    I have a 2005 Ram 1500 slt 2wd that I am going to level out. I measured it and in order to get it level I need a 3 inch kit. I found one on eBay and ordered it with shock extenders so my ride quality won't drastically change. My question is will I be able to clear a 35x12.50 tire on my stock 17...
  4. Electrical
    Hey guys, I just bought an 05 power wagon. I want to run a light bar and use the existing aux switches. Has anyone done this. They are the cluster that the sway bar disconnect switch is. Thank for the help!
  5. Performance Mods - Engine - 4.7 Liter V8
    So I bought a 2005 Dodge Ram slt with a 4.7 magnum in it then 1 month 1 week after owning it it dropped a valve seat just to test my patience.

    So here's another likely story of my 05 Dodge Ram slt that dropped a valve seat on me only owning the truck for about 2 months. So far I got the heads off and everything else that comes befor that but now I ask what should I do with it? These heads I am at dismay with first of all. I plan on...
  7. 5.7L V8 Specific Topics
    Drove to work today just fine, go to leave 8 hours later and no dice... Turning over fine, no engine light, no errors on the on/off/on/off/on test. Starting fluid in the air filter will fire it up. Gas gauge reads 1/2 tank but added 2 gallons just in case. New plugs, wires, crankshaft...

    Short Version: Sudden downshift when coming home, going approx. 70mph, no OD, P0700 code, limp mode, cleared code w/hyperpac, code came back but did have normal shifting. This is my daily driver/kid hauler/has to be reliable. Longer Version: 175000, very clean truck, no mud or offroad duty...
  9. Body & Interior
    I just smashed the back glass on my 2005 Ram last night and have found a used piece of back glass from a 2011. Is there any chance this one will fit in my 2005? Where would I look this up?
  10. Performance Mods - Engine - 5.7 Hemi V8
    OK Everyone, I'm hooking up an EFIE to our 2005 1500 4x4. My issue is this: I've checked all the wires on the O2 Sensors and have not found any wires that give me 12v. The readings I'm getting (even after driving it for 10-15 minutes to let it warm up to operating temp) is in this order of the...

  12. Dodge Ram 4x4 - Offroad Discussion

  15. Towing
    I'm trying to sell my 2005 Dodge Ram SLT a year after buying it at an auction. It has a ball hitch on the rear bumper with a wire harness near the hitch. I'm guessing it doesn't. If it doesn't, can a package be added and for how much?
  16. Performance Mods - Engine - 5.7 Hemi V8
    Decided it was time to get under the hood of the Hemi, change the oil and the spark plugs, I have been putting changing the plugs for the last 2 oil changes. After changing the oil, I began tearing into the engine, I pulled the air filter and the intake resonator gaining better access to the...
