  1. Nearing Tune-Up Time!

    2014 Dodge Ram Forum
    Hey Ram Fans, My truck is nearing the 100k miles mark and I was wondering if anyone here had any idea of what a tune-up would consist of and if anyone has done the tune-up themselves. Would like to save me some money by not going to the dealer to get this done?:smileup:Any pointers and advice...

  4. Plug Change #2: 60,000 mi

    2013 Dodge Ram Forum
    Well actually 60,319. I decided to change them myself this time because the 3 dealers here all want over $300 to do it, but the parts are only $60 (OEM Mopar plugs made by NGK) on Amazon. A penny saved is a penny earned, so I just earned myself $240 in 4 hours. The job was not too bad though...
