    Dash cam mirror tap: safe for Rams with radar cruise/automatic highbeams?

    Hi all, I’d like to get a dash cam. I like the idea of tapping the rearview mirror power, like the one below, for a clean install. Does anyone know if the mirror tap is safe for Rams with radar cruise/automatic highbeams? I think the sensor for those features is incorporated into the rearview...

    harman kardon is nothing than a bag of trash

    The HK is a perfectly good system marred by an utterly garbage subwoofer. If anyone is able to get a TSB or something else to fix the ludicrously bad sub, please be sure to make a follow up post on this thread!

    2021 Limited 1500 weak Lane Keep Assist

    The crappy lane assist was understandable when the Ram came out In 2018, at which time it was still competitive with the lane assist in most other vehicles. But Ram decided not to bother upgrading the tech for 4 years? Not exactly a commitment to excellence.

    2021 Limited 1500 weak Lane Keep Assist

    The Ram’s electronic drivers aids are 1 generation behind the latest from Kia and Hyundai, which are second only to Tesla.

    Kids highback booster that works in *middle* seat?

    Reclining seat back doesn’t seem to help unfortunately. After playing with it more, I think the issue is not the hump at the base of the seat, but rather the non-removable middle headrest that is angled forward and pushes the highback seatback forward off the seat of the truck. Really wish...

    Kids highback booster that works in *middle* seat?

    Hi folks, I recently bought a Chicco Kidfit highback booster, but it doesn’t fit in the Ram’s middle rear seat (2021 Laramie Crew Cab) due to the design (the Ram has a bulge at the base of the middle seat that prevents good contact between the back of the booster and the back of the Ram seat)...

    harman kardon is nothing than a bag of trash

    I disconnected the sub because while I like bass, I hate boomy, hollow sounding bass like the HK has. Unfortunately, it seems that you lose ANC when you do this. I don’t mind losing ANC for city driving, but on the highway the wind and road noise is louder than it used to be which is annoying.

    Chirp/Squeak from brand new Laramie Sport

    For those who say it is a brake clip issue, how can you tell…is it louder with the window down? My chirp is louder with the windows closed, so I assume it is not a brake clip?

    Chirp/Squeak from brand new Laramie Sport

    I also have an issue with a chirp over bumps. Hard to tell where it is coming from.

    Apple Watch app!

    I pay for it because remote start via app is a necessity. The parking garage at work is too far away for the remote start on the key fob to work.

    Trying to disconnect HK subwoofer w/o success: what am I doing wrong?

    Interesting. Did you just place a flat sheet of sound dampener between the carpet and the sub, or did you actually wrap the sound dampener around the sub?

    UConnect subscription renewal: cheapest way?

    Hi folks, I’ve had my 2021 Ram for a year and my Uconnect subscription is about to expire. I use remote start via app a lot, so I need to renew. Any tips/tricks on getting the renewal as cheaply as possible? My app told me to call their customer service number to renew and I want to be...

    How quiet is your truck in and out?

    The Ram is quiet, but I found my last-gen F150 to be a bit quieter. I noticed that on my F150 it was actually a bit hard to close the doors since they almost formed a vacuum. Once I got used to it, I appreciated how the semi-vacuum they created made the vehicle almost completely silent...

    Too easy to accidentally switch 4WD/2WD.

    Anyone find that they accidentally switch themselves out their desired drive mode? It’s easy to switch accidentally since the buttons touch the transmission knob. I run in 4WD auto almost all the time. But periodically I hit the gas at a right turn and the rear tires spin because I accidentally...
