The digital copy takes up much less space - and is searchable by keyword :poke:
Yeah, but can you put sticky notes on the pages. :poke:
You can, to a degree, with Adobe Reader DC comment function.

Re: owners manual ,lol!

Digital version available on Ram owners' Web site. But yeah, that owners' guide should have came with the truck. The manual has to be bought, they were about $50 four years ago.

Re: One headlamp not working.

No fuse or relay, then could be the Total Integrated Power Module (TIPM). If it is, it is not not a cheap fix. You should be able to find the pin out on the Web and find the wire to the headlight and diagnose. The TIPM is not clear to me because under the PCM (or IPM) is where all the harnesses conn...

Re: Best Drop Hitch (w/ball)

I use a 2.5 in. Gen-Y. 6 in. drop/3 in. raise or flip for opposite. 3k tongue/21K tow. Cheap is subjective. The Gen-Ys aren't cheap in my book, but it's the last hitch I'll ever buy.

Permatex or 3M kit. I've never had one detach unless I knocked it off. Preparation of surfaces are key.

Re: One headlamp not working.

Running OE bulbs (halogen I assume)? Any hotter and wire harness may have melted somewhere and is shorting out. How is the socket assembly? Check the whole harness for short to ground, major PITA though. Checked fuse and relay?

Re: cruise control issue.

Could be a fuse, speed sensor, etc. If fuse is blown, then there is a short somewhere. Personally, take it to dealer and let them figure it out. I assume still under factory warranty? Today's vehicles have complicated electronics and just not worth the headache to sort it out, even the simplest of i...

Re: stock running lights

You have to buy the printed OM from MOPAR. Ram Brand owners site has a digital version, which can be downloaded. All you got most likely was a "quick start" manual that doesn't tell you anything. I think Alpha OBD will disable the DRLs. The bed lights are another matter. As eluded to earlier, you ma...

After being passed up the chain to a star case manager, they say there’s nothing they can do because my track bar is within specs and welded. FCA IS calling this their permanent solution to the track bar problem. They won’t reimburse me for the synergy because mine was welded already. This is prett...

Re: What did you do to your PW this week?

Phillips X-Treme Vision is the prevailing halogen upgrade for the standard quad lamps. Not my recommendation, but recommended by people who live and breath automotive lighting. The bulbs have short life though.

Agree, major PITA to change bulbs.

Re: Chains up front?

Probably because the stock tire on a dually is pretty narrow and chain wouldn't be slapping/hitting the suspension. A 3500 4WD Dually with 33s and up is another matter.

Re: Weirdness with Nav after Time Change

There was a GPS roll over, or whatever it's called, on the birds on or about NOV 3rd, or so I am told. 18.45, for most 8.4AN, is the fix. My distance was off by several hundred feet and the navigation would go crazy after making a turn and recalculating for several seconds, sometimes minutes.

I'd wire them on their own circuit with the reverse light triggering a relay or on a switch in the cab. The center pin on 7-pin connector is supposed to the aux/back up light connection. Not sure of the wire color, probably, blk, yel, or purple
