    Will there be a 392 RAM?

    When it comes to fullsize trucks - I'm someone that's not open to an Ecoboost style engine, and this is regardless of manufacturer. Not GM's recent 2.7 unit, not Ford's, not Toyota's rumored engine, and if FCA does it? If I'm in the market at that point ( I have 0 intention on ever selling this...

    Post your Rebel pics!

    Love it! Probably my favorite mod I have a couple long posts in the official thread on it The sparknotes: 1) yes IMHO my mpg did improve. .5 city, 1mpg highway. At the extreme least .3mpg I havent seen below 15mpg in my almost entirely stop and go driving 2) Great response, lag was reduced...

    Post your Rebel pics!

    I've been driving Rebels since 2016, gotta say, I'm a big fan. I'm really glad Ram built these "more than a decal" offroader trucks! Complete with the Hemi V8, nice interior, comfy ride, no giant air dam 2in off the ground, a factory lift, 33in REAL all terrain tires - in a package I can afford.

    Just an update, still no rain. In another thread elsewhere on this board, I saw someone mentioned tire noise going up with a tire being underinflated. I started running the tires at 56/46 cold PSI, and also heard them at 54 cold PSI. I'm thinking there's some truth to that. I did some more...

    Inconsistent power delivery when going full throttle

    My review post on it is in the middle of this page right here (It's a long post) https://5thgenrams.com/community/threads/mopar%E2%80%99s-%E2%80%9Cram-airflow%E2%80%9D-cold-air-intake-system-for-ram-1500.11037/page-34 the quick version? IMHO the MPG gain was between .5 and 1mpg (highway)...

    Inconsistent power delivery when going full throttle

    When I replaced my air intake with the mopar unit (which I highly recommend, it specifically seems to work best on the highway when air is flying at the intake, this is where I noticed the biggest improvement) - I saw something funny concerning the old one. When I picked it up off the ground, a...

    New BF Goodrich KO2

    SUPPOSEDLY the KO2s "Get louder" as they get old but, whatever. When I had KO2s on my last ram I F-ing loved them. To me the best tires for a truck, are A/Ts with a 3PMSF severe snow rating. That list includes (but is not limited to) BF Goodrich KO2s, Duratracs, Falken AT3Ws, and now the Toyo...

    Hmm. Interesting. Truth be told tire noise is never really something I paid a lot of attention to? I think a lot of times I would attribute such noises to the wind hitting the trucks, maybe not knowing better. Now to be fair my last Ram had a Borla XR1, soundwise it was a V8-orgy everywhere I...

    duratrac or ko2

    I had KO2s on my old Ram rebel, and Had the duratracs stock on this second gen one. Between those, KO2s for the above stated reasons. I think both tires are good, but I think the KO2 was better.

    Easy and Cheap 20" Light Bar DIY Install (no fabrication needed)

    It's not impossible to put things in the upper grille, but I do believe there are the active grille shutters already occupying that real estate

    2021 Ram 1500 Laramie vs 2021 GMC Sierra Denali

    I think the GMC AT4s look awesome! I think this is a hotly competitive segment, and the end winner is us, the buyers. To me, I'm a V8 guy when it comes to fullsize trucks. Not interested in small displacement boosted gasoline engines, in a full size pick up. There are people who love them, they...

    - Dueler Revo 2 A/Ts - A glorified highway tire, PS: Do not turn in the snow. Had good MPG. It was a simpler time then, I think we were still on BFG A/T K/Os. Not even the KO2. Might have been 2008? More aggressive than a dueler H/T, didn't ruin the driving characteristics. - General Grabbers...
