RE: 2015 Ram Trucks

Well I have to disagree 110% with your comment "10 years ago, Dodge had front end and transmission issues with the worst fit and finish truck. While being owned by Daimler they made huge improvements each year. " Damn-Lire had owed us for six years ten years ago and those were the worse times Chrysler had ever had! Robert Eaton....never mind. Enjoy your new truck I'm sure it will serve you well. Don

RE: 2015 Ram Trucks

Well congrats Bedlam and thank you sir! I know you had a Ford, can I ask what made you go with the Ram over the Ford SD? Don

RE: Turbo small displacement - displacement on demand- a winner?

They have a looooong way to go. Even the latest engines are under 35% efficient. So there's a lot more power hiding in every gallon of fuel. Yes and the weight reduction 'wars' have just begun,how far will that battle go? win for the consumers. No win for the average consumers, unless you think $52,000 for a pick up is a win. Most consumers can't afford one of those trucks. Don

RE: UPDATE! Ordered a 2015 Eco-Diesel today! :)

Have to say the one I test drove didn't even sound like a diesel it was so quiet. I had said to the wife, I think it needs an exhaust like the one the Ole Red. She looked at me and said no way, no how, not going to happen!!! LMAO

Dual tail pipes, not a true dual exhaust.

RE: UPDATE! Ordered a 2015 Eco-Diesel today! :)

Nope one is in inspection and the other should be with it it by now. They both have to go to the outside vendor the OD for steps and spray in bed liner and the Laramie for just steps. Pburg Dodgeboy VIN: FS500203 Status: I (Inspection) Est. Build: 10/17/2014 Est. Ship: 10/18/2014 (well we missed that date. LOL) Pburg Dodgeboy (2) VIN: FS521332 Status: F (Paint) Est. Build: 10/18/2014 Est. Ship: 10/23/2014 (oops missed that date also! LOL) I'm thinking or hoping first week of Nov second at the latest. Thank God my dealer has given me a car to drive since August 26 :E and has not said a thing about it! Now that's one great dealer!

RE: 2015 Ram Trucks

The 2015 trucks are just now arriving at the dealers. If you are going to put that slide in camper in the bed I would strongly recommend you order a 2015 with the rear air suspension. You can now get the 2015 HD trucks with the rear air suspension. If you go with the 2014 you are going to need to add air bags with a slide in camper. There was a guy on here that was complaining how poorly is 2500 handled with a larger slide in camper and was not happy that he needed to add air bags to his brand new truck. I'll see if I can find out if Ram even recommends the 2500 for use with a slide in camper. Don

RE: Warranty Claim Denied

I was traveling a few years ago and had a Ford warranty problem. The dealer told me too bad nothing could be done. DW called the 1-800 in the Ford user manual. Ford Direct. Talked to the guy on the phone while we sat in the PU in the parking lot. He put her on hold for a few minutes came back and said all was taken care of. Funny before we could get out of the PU the head manager was running towards our vehicle complaining that we had no need to do that BUT bring the truck around and we will take care of you. So give it a try. May or may not work. I had the same thing happen to me with a VW TDI. Every time II took in in for the the "included" oil changes they would not remove the belly pan and it would fill with oil and leak all over my garage floor. After getting nowhere with the service manager I called VW of America about a half an hour later the owner called me screaming and swearing at me for calling VW. I told him if he didn't like it the first time he sure was not going to like the call he gets in about ten minutes! Yep I got a call back apologizing for his actions. Have your buddy call Ford, but I suspect you won't get very far with them. The Domestic car companies do not care about their customers like VW does! Sad!

RE: UPDATE! Ordered a 2015 Eco-Diesel today! :)

Buddylam that is what makes the Cummins the best diesel in a pick up period! The in-line six of my 5.9 even with the 48RE was turning under 1500 RPM in OD @ 65 MPH. That is why they run forever. Unlike a V-8 or yes even a V-6 diesel, the up side to the new 1500 Rams are they are running a eight speed trans. So it is going to be quick off the line but in the top gear will not be turning high RPMs so it should have a long life. Only time will tell how well the EcoD works out but all I know is we can't make enough of them to support the demand right now! Hottest truck on the market, maybe it might even out sell the mighty F-150 someday! Don

RE: UPDATE! Ordered a 2015 Eco-Diesel today! :)

Lets do a reality check for some of you guys shell we! First, MOST of the buyers of the Eco-Diesel will not be towing anything with it other than maybe yard stuff and lumber for a weekend project myself included. Second, The number one reason everyone has said they have or will bought/buy an Eco-diesel is the fuel economy the truck gets, yes myself included here also! The cost of the truck compared to the same gas truck (option wise) is within dollars of each other. So with the quality and option improvements under Fiat the Ram is as good as the Ford or GM products being built today. Third, barring any major issues with the VM engine the Ram Eco-diesel will fetch a premium price when selling it used. Don't think so, well I got $18,500 for my 04 with 150K last month and could have gotten $19,500 or more if I held out! The same truck with a gas engine was selling for $13,000 tops in mint condition like my truck was. I fully expect to do the same with the new truck when I sell it in 2024. Now if you sell or trade every 2-3 years then NO you will not recoup and make a profit off your truck as I did. As for cost of ownership, a diesel truck cost no more or less than a gas if you do ALL the math. Fuel cost are less even with the cost of diesel. Are oil changes higher, yes but not by that much. You don't have those $800/1,200+ dollar tune ups with a diesel that you have with a gas engine. Plugs, wires and air filter on my DD 1998 2.5 Avenger ES just cost me $450+ had I not had my employee discount it would have been 25% higher! Bottom line, if you need the status of owning a new vehicle to make yourself feel that you are something special then maybe a diesel is not the right engine choice for you. If you need to be at the top of a long 6% grade FIRST than a LD/HD Ram is not the truck for you. We might be a minute or two behind you but you will be spending more in fuel and repairs in the long run. If you want top end speed then maybe you should NOT be towing an RV anyway! If you want to tow a big honking RV around then NO the Eco-diesel is not the correct engine choice for you! But if you want a truck that can make 30+ MPG solo on the highway and 14 to 17 MPG towing a 7000#+ trailer then YES the Eco-diesel is the right choice for you. GM, Ford and Ram ALL make great trucks so spend YOUR money on what will work best for you. That is what I'm going to do. BTW if you look at any of my posts about what makes a good tow vehicle, all of you should have been able to figure out that I ordered this truck without the intentions of it being a tow vehicle. At least not towing a larger RV, it is a SWB Ram 1500 not the LWB. If I had thought for a minute we were going to get a 28'+ RV I would have went with the LWB and 17" wheels not the 20". Don

RE: UPDATE! Ordered a 2015 Eco-Diesel today! :)

Our 2008 Honda CRV AWD would get 26 MPG on freeway, the 2012 Touareg with 3.0 TDI and AWD and 5000#s gets 30 -32 mpg, all the time, when not towing a trailer, a bit less come the cold of winter, maybe 28 or 29. Hoping Dodge Perryboy gets his Eco broken in soon enough so we can see some towing numbers for mpg come next spring, when it warms up a bit. Well unless I borrow a trailer from someone that's not going to happen very soon :( . We sold the Cougar last Oct and do not plan on getting a replacement anytime soon (I think). BUT, Camping World just opened up shop next door to the Bass Pro Shop about 7 miles from me and Mamma has said "we should stop in CW and see what they have :) . If we do buy it won't be much longer then 25' with no more then 7200# GVWR. The Outdoorsman I ordered is in the paint shop right now and should go into final assembly late to night or early morning (tuesday). The Laramie has not been started yet :( and that is the one I'm going to buy. IdaD is the first person that I have heard reporting low fuel numbers he was at 14 and change on that particular tank. I'm assuming he was towing a trailer :h , if not he should take those trucks back and go by an Ecoboost LOL. There are now 2 E-diesels at the plant I work at and both are guys from New York from closed plants. Both drive back on the weekends when they can and are reporting between 27-32 MPG. If they hit a strong head wind they drop to the 27 mark and both have the 3:55 gears in 4X4 short box trucks. One is a Outdoorsman and the other is a Limited. Hybridhunter for someone that hates diesels why do you post in diesel threads? We get it buddy you hate anything that does not have a blue oval on the grill and gasoline in the tank.

RE: UPDATE! Ordered a 2015 Eco-Diesel today! :)

Pics are due any day now, Don. On the production line, of course. At one time we used to be able to go to the plants and walk with our vehicle, but not anymore. If you work at the plant that builds it then you can still walk with it but otherwise no way. :( The Eco's are being built but have a QC hold for an updated ECM build coming. This should only hold things up for a week or so, from what I'm hearing. I'm thinking I should have the truck early November. Don

RE: UPDATE! Ordered a 2015 Eco-Diesel today! :)

Well I have a build date for the new truck/trucks LOL The first one (Outdoorsman) and the one I'm not buying is to be built Oct.15 with a ship date of the 15th. The second one (Laramie) and the one I am going to buy will be built on Oct. 18 with a ship date of the 22th. Dealer should have it some time in the Nov. then it gets sent to Line-X and Z-Bart so I should have it about a week after that. I ordered the factory spray in liner but there was a problem getting it built so they took that out of the build. Don

RE: Need FAST Reliable cheap ball-joint mech Mesa AZ

:R Really? Yep REALLY...maybe try reading what I wrote...never did I say for him to do it himself, not one time! What I said was "some of you must have more money than brains!" telling the OP that $1000 is a good price for two ball joints! Sure if you have cash to burn and a $1000 is cigar lighting paper then go for it. Lets look at your post shell we. You paid a shop $100 to do an alignment!? Wow they are $35 here, unless you opt for the lifetime alignment then it's right near $100. "Add it up and I had 10.5 hrs of time $200 in parts, $50 rental, 105 miles of driving (6 gallons of gas at $2.80 per gallon back then." Sorry you don't have the tools to do the job, but taking 10.5 hours to change two ball joints is crazy. Maybe you should have spent the $1000 if you don't have the tools to do the work! My post was telling the OP to go to a different shop, not to do it himself. Before you slam someone make sure you have the facts right! :R:R:R:R:R:R:R:R:R Don

RE: Hit and run! - Dully owners

Fist congrats for doing the right thing and taking care of her mail box. More than I can say for the two people that took out my mail box and the street light at my house. One winter someone hit just my box and another winter they got the box and light pole! Did you put some blue or red reflectors on the box for her? If not it might be a good idea and might keep someone else from doing the same thing in the future. Good thing it was a mailbox and someone walking on the side of the road! Don

RE: Need FAST Reliable cheap ball-joint mech Mesa AZ

Wow I have to say some of you must have more money then brains! I have done ball joints in my garage for many people that can't afford a $600 bill let alone a $1000 bill! No freaking way should two ball joints cost a grand! OP if the guy on CL has the abillity to do the job then let him do it. See if you can supply the parts or at least pick what parts are going on the truck. None of the OEM's make their own ball joints so why pay a steeler for their over priced TRW or Mooge ball joints! Pick them up at Auto Zone or wherever and have the guy install them. Just because someone works out of their garage and not at a shop, does not mean they are incompetent. Most guys are off duty mechanics trying to make ends meet. Rent a car and go see what he has to offer and what tools he has. If he checks out let him do the work, if not find a shop that is not going to rip you off like the place your at now! Don

RE: Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat

My dealer said he has two sold units ordered and one for stock and will NOT be tacking anything onto the sticker, but you will be paying sticker for it. And we will need more people to go in on this thing, I'll take Sundays as it's the only day I'm guaranteed off for a long time to come! Don
