Re: Premier Power Welder or Ready Welder II

I use the Rediwelder. Its a monster. Have welded anything you can think of and the batteries would still start the vehicles. You can just disconnect the battery on the repair vehicle and bring over one from another.

Re: Super Bowl Commercial

Not very politically correct these days TwinStick, but you are correct. We have carried the serving thing way too far. Cops become cops because after 20 years they retire with a pension, medical, ect and start a new career all over again. My dad did that in the Air Force. Now to pensions plus Social...

Super Bowl Commercial

Frankly I love Ram Super Bowl commercials. But apparently this one is controversial. I actually missed it but just saw it on TFL truck.

Re: Recent Warranty Work

I really don't think so. Electrical Gremlin seem pretty rare on Rams. And things like Sat Nav are really solid. That being said my Garage door has un-programed 2 times and I am going to try to figure that out now. Anyone else have that issue?

Re: Recent Warranty Work

Maybe heavy duty trucks require more repairs? That seems counter intuitive. But you have to recognize where Japanese truck buyers come from. I would not expect repairs at all under say 125K. I beat the snot out of my 05 Titan( took it off-roading some, live off-road, got stuck fourhweeling towing an...

That is the good news, we tend to know the problems. Front suspension, Unit bearings, smart bar.....Hopefully no more transmission non-sense.

Re: Recent Warranty Work

Leaky hose I get, it happens. But you do have to wonder why after all these years they struggle with something like unit bearings. Time will tell, so far pretty impressed with how the truck feels. Not as smooth as the Titan in some ways, like engine idle, but that's probably MDS. Had some hard clunk...

Re: Recent Warranty Work

That is a lot of work for a super low mileage truck. Its the kind of thing that worries me about my long term satisfaction with Ram. My drivers seat belt retract er is operating like my Japanese counterparts did at around 150K. That is really annoying. I may need to get mine looked at as well. Stupi...

Re: Intial Impressions from a Noob

A couple of more observations. The ride improved dramatically already. Seems like the shocks needed to break in or something. Very nice now. Other thing is idle is rougher then any vehicle I have ever driven new. I assume its MDS or something.

Re: First Recovery

Never had trouble pulling in reverse before, but I have heard that. I think a light weight mini van would be ok though. Its crazy too, you can practically leave it in neutral to winch its so heavy :lol:

Re: 2019 1500 Info Release

Well numerous elements of this truck did make it into the 17, styling wise. To me the best thing they could do is swap to those better bumpers for 2019.

My old truck was an 05 at 250K and it was definitely enough. Test drove it for someone the other day and and I could not believe how badly it drove. Did not even notice driving it daily.
