    Running boards for big guys?

    Gun safe for my 2019 Limited

    Personally speaking, if you’re concerned about security, I wouldn’t get the Tuffy console box. It’s made of thin steel and the sides are hinged (ie: not welded) to the top to make it more compact for shipping. I went with the Console Vault myself because the construction is much more...

    Gun safe for my 2019 Limited

    For that style of console storage, you’ll have no trouble with a full size handgun. This is a Glock 19 in my Console Vault. You could fit a couple full size handguns no problem. The Lock’er Down will have pretty much identical storage capacity. Since you have a Laramie you don’t need to worry...

    Torn on color

    My wife and I liked Patriot Blue the best. We were fortunate to find one optioned how we wanted. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ram sales drop to 3rd place for the 1st Quarter

    I’d say nothing that happens Q1 of 2020 can be indicative of any long term trends. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Center front speaker gurus...have a question for ya.

    I’m wondering if it might have something to do with a single center speaker and the Infinity’s only being sold by the pair. The one that does “fit” happens to be a single speaker. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sensitive parking sensors

    Unfortunately no. To the best of my knowledge, they updated the computer. Have you asked the dealer about the parking sensor TSB? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sensitive parking sensors

    It’s hard to say if it’s better. It happens so intermittently to begin with. I can say it seems to happen less, but it’s still got me a couple times. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Water from muffler ?

    One of the chemical byproducts of combustion is water and because exhaust gases are so hot, it’s typically expelled as water vapor. In cold weather, the water vapor quickly condenses into a liquid state after leaving the exhaust. Seeing a wet spot or puddle under the tailpipe is typical, but...

    Who Switched?

    Traded my 16 Silverado for a 2019 Ram in October. 11k miles later and I’m still glad I did. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Is it possible to lock the truck, while the engine is running, from the outside?

    I do it all the time when it’s cold out. I take the fob with me, lock the door with the button on the handle, and leave it running while I run into a gas station or whatever. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Convince a car guy to buy a 1500 (please)

    I’m the quintessential “guy who owns a truck who doesn’t need one” I commute upwards of 100 miles daily and only “need” a truck because I enjoy doing projects and enjoy being able to get anything I want from the home despot for whatever crazy idea I drop on my wife. The 15-16mpg I’m averaging...

    what grinds my gears!!!

    GPS is very cheap to implement. At its core, a GPS unit just receives clock signals from satellites. A receiver is pennies to bake into existing hardware. I’m not privy to the exact makeup of the electronics of our trucks, but there are several layers of hardware and software that takes a raw...

    Did you like the look of the 2019 rams at first?

    I was a big fan of the styling of my 16 Silverado. I thought it was a nicely modern look that was a step up from the previous generation. Then the new models came out and they look awful. I test drove a 2019 and aside from the gaudy exterior, the interior looked even more bland than my 2016 with...
