    I'd love a bigger DEF tank...or less DEF consumption

    It was a joke fellas. But look it up - DEF is indeed 'essentially' purified water and pee, among a few other things. I'm actually surprised nobody's bio-hacked this yet so people could make their own - kinda like the ones who make home made bio-diesel from the fry-cooker oil. I wouldn't...

    I'd love a bigger DEF tank...or less DEF consumption

    Considering that DEF is 'essentially' purified water and pee, maybe this problem works itself out during the long drive with a couple of Super Big Gulps and a big bottle of distilled water? :ROFLMAO:

    Power Window Wierdness

    Glad to hear I'm not the only one. Like I mentioned, I first noticed it with my 2012, but never got out of hand. Just a minor annoyance now and then, more than anything. I was surprised when it seemed to transfer over to my '21 (same conditions, same exact issue), but WTF?! If they've got...

    Power Window Wierdness

    I went through a Laser Wash one day back in the late 2000s in my '97 1500. Dropped the window to put in the code, then pulled forward into the tunnel and marveled for a moment at how cool my brand-new Gibson exhaust sounded... then the pre-wash water came on. That window had never taken so...

    Power Window Wierdness

    Thanks! I'll give that a shot. I do have in-channel visors on this one, but had the stick-on units on the Lone Star.

    Power Window Wierdness

    Is it just me, or do the power windows sometimes change direction and drop about a second after you hit the button to 'auto close?' If it's not raining, I drop my windows first thing after it's been parked for a period of time (overnight, usually), just to recycle some fresh air into the...

    Let’s see your Dogs!

    Exactly! After hearing stories about how even the Salvation Army has gone woke a few weeks ago, I made the easy decision to ignore the bell-ringer and head to the ASPCA booth right next to it. The ASPCA guys asked why I picked them over the bell-ringer, and I told him, "It's because people...

    Let’s see your Dogs!

    First road trip in the new Ram was to Oklahoma City to pick up these two from a ****er Spaniel Rescue about 5 weeks after I bought it. Odie on the left, Milo on the right. And yes, everything in this pic needs to be trimmed. I think they were distracted by a squirrel taunting them from the...

    12 inch screen users

    Thanks. Mine's just a little different than yours - A/C button's on the other side, for instance. I do use the hard buttons to change HVAC stuff exclusively as well, just when reaching for those switches on a less-than-perfect road (which are plentiful in San Angelo) has me changing...

    12 inch screen users

    It started with the touchsreen stereo I installed in my 2012 (because I wanted a back-up camera), and I've been trying to just use the top side of my fingernail to 'touch' things, which works for the most part, but I'm human and forget. I'll check into the screen protector idea - thanks for the...

    12 inch screen users

    I also have mixed feelings... but mostly not for the reasons listed above. I admit I'm also concerned about the screen bricking and losing pretty much all of the truck's electronics along with it. But, having been in the IT world since the '80s, I am that guy who loses my sh!t when there are...

    Anyone have a SwingCase in their bed?

    I have an Undercover Flex - which is just like the BAKFlip MX4, and I'm pretty sure the leading edge doesn't ride as far over the lip of the tailgate as the old Extang I had. Glad you like your BAKFlip and Swing Cases!

    Anyone have a SwingCase in their bed?

    I followed the directions for mounting, which I believe actually used one existing hole on each side (the rest had to be drilled). They only had about an inch of clearance from the bottom of the boxes to the floor/tail gate when in-place. They would swing in and out with the cover on quite...

    Anyone have a SwingCase in their bed?

    I had a pair in my 2012 Lone Star - loved 'em! I was hoping to get the flat universal tool kit out of the back seat area, but there was no way it would fit in the boxes, so I just had soft things (like straps, tow ropes, gloves, jumper cables, a bag of rags, etc.) stashed in them. When I had...

    2021 Ram HK stereo Issue

    I think you missed the part where I mentioned "(depending on recording level)." My hearing is just fine. I don't use streaming services - why pay for a music service that plays tunes I already have? I listen primarily to MP3s from a USB thumb drive. Believe it or not, even factory produced...
