    I'm getting ready to do a bit of work under the hood of my new 5500 and looking to get fender protectors. Can I get some recommendations? There are a couple options on Amazon but nothing that really stands out and the same with a Google search. I'm don't care about brand name, just quality.

    I just bought my first dodge ram. It definately some TLC but I'm loving it! The previous owners never thought to change the rear diff gear oil, and when I purchased it a few months ago from them it had just turned 100K miles. First thing I noticed is a vibration or chatter only on slow tight...

I was reading through the manual and in the maintenance section it shows the maintenance schedule starts at 20,000 miles! :wow: Surely, this is not when I take it in for the first service, is it? I hear some say change the oil at 1000 mi but I haven't...
  9. Three years of free oil changes? Sure, that'd be awesome!
