RE: 2015 RAM Rebel

So all of the talking heads seem to like it. As for the Raptor it's not trying to compete with it and why would we? There is not enough profit in it to make it worthwhile. Maybe Ram is testing the waters to see if a radical change to the Ram would be welcome? Like the new grill on the Ram Limited. From what I'm hearing there will be some big changes coming in both the 1500 and the HD line in 2017 and 2018. Don

RE: need good windshield, wiper blade cleaner

I use alcohol wipes. Not on the wiper blades, it/they will dry the rubber out! Use dawn dish soap diluted in water. Remove the blades and using a clean rag gently wipe the whole wiper blade down. Rinse off with garden hose and they are ready to reinstall. As for the windshield, the alcohol wipes would work or any good cleaner like Windex. If you have a bodyshop near you you might ask them if you can buy a small amount of paint prep (wax and grease remover). Add a small amount to a clean cotton rag and wipe the windshield down. if you go with the last idea MAKE SURE you do not get any of it on the paint. As the name suggests it will remove the wax and I mean right now! Don

RE: '03 CTD question?

It seems to sound like air is passing somewhere You also mentioned less power... check turbo/intercooler boots and intercooler for cracks/tears/leaks, worn out boots/tubes can cause loss of power as air maybe escaping from the turbo or intercooler on the way to the intake. Also check intake manifold area, could be a leaky gasket. This is where I would go first. X3 Check the black rubber boot that connects the air intake to the turbo. Mine on my 04 cracked and only showed up under load made a sound like you are describing. Ordered a new boot from the dealer power resorted and all was good again. Note at the age of your truck it maybe time to replace all the intercooler hoses also. Don

RE: What might that noise be?

Yep GM single handedly killed the diesel car market in the USA with that joke. Hope the clown that decided it was a good idea to take an Oldsmobile 350 V8 gas engine and change it into a diesel got fired and never had the opportunity to work again. Don

RE: I am at lost. Another bad luck with my TV

Lots of Ford owners carry that kit with them and do it on the side of the road. After a couple, it shouldn't take much more than 20 minutes. You might want to carry a couple of coils with you too! Absolute BS.. Just because you are a "Dodge Guy" it doesn't give YOU the right to spout of this kind of GARBAGE.. Did you notice what he drives? LOL Here is a little history for you. I worked at Doehler-Jarvis and we did the RD work on their at the time new alum heads. Our Engineering Department told Ford they should add steel thread inserts to the spark plug openings. Their response was the inserts were not needed and if there was a failure it would happen well outside the warranty period. Gotta love those bean counters! BTW the cost of adding the system to the casting process was about $180,000 per die, the cost of the insert itself was $0.03 each or $0.12 per head! How much does it cost to fix Ford's inept engineering? Again you have to love the Bean Counters and it's the same at EVERY company no mater the product! Don

RE: 2015 RAM Rebel

Funny the wife seen one the other day add said she liked it :h As for the "telescoping steering wheel" your 100% dead on troy. I have a $53,389 truck that I love except for that. I need to have the seat moved up so I don't feel like I'm reaching for the wheel. We build telescoping steering wheels just for some reason they don't out them in the trucks.

RE: What to do about a useless limited slip rear end?

My 2004 Ram with LS 4X2 CTD would get stuck all the time UNTIL I bought some better tires. Before you go dropping coin on rebuilding or replacing your rear end buy a set of mud and snow tires for the rear and see if that doesn't work. Don

RE: Nissan Titan - Diesel Goodness

BTW speaking of fairness, do you think it was fair to compare a 2016 5.0 diesel with a 2004 5.9? :R Who did that Turtel? All I said was it's output is the same or near the same as my 2004 5.9 not the mileage! Nothing could touch the older 2003/2004 5.9 HO for fuel mileage in the truck market! Go back and re-read it if you must. :R

RE: Nissan Titan - Diesel Goodness

In the fourth quarter of 2009, when the new Ram division’s trucks were hitting the streets, the company eked out a paltry 11 percent of the market share for full-size trucks. The two other Detroit automakers were lapping Chrysler around the track, with shares of 42 percent for G.M. and 37 percent for Ford. Since then Ram has conquered more and more of the market every year. In August, when sales surged 33 percent over a year earlier, Ram commanded 21 percent of full-size pickup purchases in the United States. Most of that success has come at the expense of G.M.’s Chevrolet Silverado pickup, which despite its own recent redesign has lost market share this year. Ford’s F-Series pickups remain the overall market leader, but their sales have also dipped this summer as the automaker prepares to introduce a new generation of trucks made with an aluminum body. Link IT, if you don't know the difference between a slant six and an in-line six you are a bigger clown then I gave you credit for LMAO. BTW Ford sales of their F-series -4.6% in march Chevy +7.0% GMC +3.2% Ram -2.2% Ram sales Ford sales All truck sales march 15 Maybe if you weren't such a troll people wouldn't argue. Oh well have to go to bed working 12 days 7 days a week for the past three months at the plant that is slowing down. Hay just a little FACT for you IT. I noticed Ford is the ONLY car company laying people off. Flat Rock Plant to end third shift do to POOR sales. No GM or FCA plants laying off.

RE: Nissan Titan - Diesel Goodness

Itguy you're so full of bull excrement that it's not funny. Fact, my dealer does Eco-diesel oil changes for $65 + tax with a tire rotation and fills all fluids. Fact, @ 70 MPH my Eco-diesel makes 27 MPG not 22.8 what the 2.7 makes @55 MPH! Fact, Ram trucks are taking market share from both Ford and the GM twins every quarter so someone must like them. Now back to the topic. No V-8 diesel can make better mileage than the in-line Cummins. The output ratings for the 5.0 V8 Cummins are what my 2004 5.9 were but without the fuel mileage. Will it sell, yes, yes it will. It fills a market segment and you can bet GM is going to join in on this. Ford had better get on board if they want to keep their BS claim as the best selling truck (F series trucks that is). Here are the pics I posted back in January, looks like a very capable truck to me. http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/2015%20Detroit%20Auto%20Show/2015%20Ram%201500%20Eco-diesel/20150118_131042_zpshkzhizeg.jpg height=500 width=500 http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/2015%20Detroit%20Auto%20Show/2015%20Ram%201500%20Eco-diesel/20150118_131034_zpsy0to7khc.jpg height=500 width=500 http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/2015%20Detroit%20Auto%20Show/20150118_131404_zpshcrfq2z9.jpg height=500 width=500 Note the 6 lug axle! http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/2015%20Detroit%20Auto%20Show/2015%20Ram%201500%20Eco-diesel/20150118_131219_zpshnxpxcko.jpg height=500 width=500 http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/2015%20Detroit%20Auto%20Show/2015%20Ram%201500%20Eco-diesel/20150118_131134_zpstezraczk.jpg height=500 width=500 http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/2015%20Detroit%20Auto%20Show/2015%20Ram%201500%20Eco-diesel/20150118_131127_zpsgxrzmjgf.jpg height=500 width=500 http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/2015%20Detroit%20Auto%20Show/2015%20Ram%201500%20Eco-diesel/20150118_131118_zps4zvnl7he.jpg height=500 width=500 http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/2015%20Detroit%20Auto%20Show/2015%20Ram%201500%20Eco-diesel/20150118_131207_zpsktbeoor5.jpg height=500 width=500 Don

RE: Nissan Titan - Diesel Goodness

Assuming they can price it appropriately. They've got to undercut the Duramax/Ram Cummins/Powerstroke 3/4 tons at least a little, or they're in trouble. Agreed, I could not get any info on pricing at the NAAS in Detroit in January. Was told it would be out sometime in the second quarter of 2015. Wounder what is holding up the launch? Don

RE: I'm confused - Suburban 1500 tow up to 7,500 lbs?

That's nearing the top end of it's rating and will most likely tow it but will struggle pulling the grades. If you are OK with that then go for it, slow and steady wins the race. If you have to be the first up the hill pulling a RV to make up for other shortcomings then you will need something else. Good luck Don

RE: Def fluid in new Ram

Well I did buy my first 2.5 gal there... $22 tax included. It was the service man that told me that...said they've had to replace a couple systems, about $7000, due to bad def fluid purchased somewhere. So the tech is guarrenteeing that mopar def will never be bad? I bet the owner of the dealership would loive to know his tech just put him up to pay for any damages done if his mopar def goes bad OMG people, the dealership won't give a rats red behind because Mopar AKA FCA will be paying for any damage not the dealership! SMFH Also maybe some of you don't know but unless noted ALL Mopar parts and Accessories are covered under a three year no mileage warranty. Some have a lifetime warranty! What is that jug of DEF @ Wallmart going to cost you if your truck ends up with a DEF tank issue and the dealer finds crystals in the tank and injector? Think Wallyworld is going to come to your rescue and pay that repair bill? Buy what you want just understand the risks of going cheap! Start checking around and you will quickly find this is a bigger issue than most of you think it is. Don

RE: Def fluid in new Ram

Here is what you do. Go into the dealership and tell the service manager you want that put in writing and signed by him and the owner of the dealership. It will be fun to watch how their story changes and they start to stammer like Daffy Duck. :B Be sure to post it onto Youtube so all of us can enjoy! :B Or they will just say you can use any fluid you like, BUT if you us the Mopar fluid and we find crystals in the DEF system and injector you will not have any issues getting the repair covered under warranty. Bet there won't be any stammering at all. There have been issues with water contaminating DEF system. This is NOT a covered repair and IS a very expensive repair! If water gets in the tank it will form crystals that clogs the pump and injector. Leading to a costly repair. If you are using the Mopar branded DEF fluid the you WILL be covered! There is a dealer bulletin saying just that. Sounds more like the person telling the OP about it just did not do a very good job explaining WHY you would want to use the Mopar fluid. This is not just a Ram thing, it's a ALL brand thing. The question is does Ford and GM tell their customers this or would they prefer them to us an off brand fluid and then charge their customer for the repair? Don Oh and BTW I filled mine up at the Flying-J, but after seeing the bulletin I may start buying it from the dealer from now on.

RE: Is a reflash of the ECM necessary

Mich800 yep I agree if you're not having an issue then you don't need the reflash. You also would not be asking for it if you were not experiencing an issue either. My truck was flashed for the latest updates, one for the trans and the other for the powertrain (high DEf usage). BTW the topic was "Is a reflash of the ECM necessary" and the OP was asking because it was going to cost him, OP corect me if I'm wrong. Don

RE: Is a reflash of the ECM necessary

A TSB is only a road map for the dealer or shop to diagnose and fix a common issue. They are not free unless you are under warranty (they are not the same thing). On a reflash if you bought your vehicle from the dealership shouldn't they do it for you, even if the vehicle is out of warranty? I know my dealer does, even if you didn't buy it from him. A reflash does not take any time to do most are under 10 minutes and all they do is plug the unit in via the ODDII port set it up and wait for it to complete the upload. They are not changing parts or anything. The service write up person should even be able to do it. Don

RE: Back Up Camera

Kit to add back up cam NOTE you will need to upgrade to the 5.0/RA2 radio. You can pick up a 5.0/RA2 radio on e-bay also or any junk yard.

RE: Is a reflash of the ECM necessary

I didn't know a service/repair shop had the ability to do a manufacture re-flash to update your ECM. Dealers yes but a non dealer? If there is an old re-flash that has not been done the dealer should do it at no charge for you. They can check the history by using the vin number and let you know if there are any outstanding re-flashes. That is why they are only done at the dealers. Note, a TSB or Technical Service Bulletin can be issued for anything that does not require a manufacture to issue a Gov. mandated recall. They are not just for re-flashes. Don

RE: New to me 6.7L F350-First Tow Update

Very nice set you have there! Just a heads up until you figure how much DEF your truck uses I would just fill it to the half way mark. From what I have been reading DEF does not have a long shelf life. So buy only what you will use in 6 months. The Mad Norsky look at your jack under the passenger seat you might find that Ram supplied you with a long neck funnel. They did with my 2015, it is to be used to add DEF and fuel. The cap less filler neck has a double flapper valve and the long neck is needed to open both so you can add DEF or fuel. Don
