    2020 Ram 1500 Using Stock 20" Rims, what is the biggest tire I can go?

    From what I've read, the ReadyLift kit (and most top hat spacers) do the best job of maintaining ride quality. I think to get a ride that's better than OEM, you have to look at coilovers or other more expensive options. Definitely do NOT choose a pre-load spacer if you're concerned about ride...

    2020 Ram 1500 Using Stock 20" Rims, what is the biggest tire I can go?

    I'm in the same boat as you. Haven't been able to make a decision as I've been drowning in all the information out there. That said, I've read good things about this leveling kit from ReadyLift that includes top hat spacers and new UCAs...

    Anybody run Nittos at stock size?

    Want to replace my out of round (and not covered by warranty) OE Bridgestones with some Nittos. Does anyone run them at stock size (for me, that's 275/55R20) on stock wheels? Part of me wants to put on the 2" Mopar lift and run a larger tire but the part of me that has to pay for everything...

    Bridgestone OE tire warranty will only replace 1 out of round tire even if my brand new truck has 3 eggs on it

    I've had both the dealership and an independent shop check for all possible causes of vibration as well as measure the road force on the tires. Everything else (suspension, transmission, etc.) checked out OK, but 3 of the 4 tires had 25+ pounds of road force. One of them even measured 41 pounds...

    Bridgestone OE tire warranty will only replace 1 out of round tire even if my brand new truck has 3 eggs on it

    Page 62 of this PDF states that "Ride disturbance or vibration after 1/32 of an inch (0.8mm) of tread wear use" is not covered: https://msmownerassets.z13.web.core.windows.net/assets/publications/en-us/Ram/2022/1500_DT/P118091_22_00_TW_EN_US_DIGITAL.pdf However, that does not state anything...

    Bridgestone OE tire warranty will only replace 1 out of round tire even if my brand new truck has 3 eggs on it

    Per their original equipment warranty, Bridgestone will only replace a maximum of 1 tire within the first 1/32" on original equipment for any vibration concern. They do not warranty road force in any way. So Ram can sell me a brand new $67,000 truck with 4 brand new tires on it, 3 of them can be...

    OEM Bridgestone Tire Warranty

    Do you like the Defenders? I have a sinking feeling about this warranty claim. The OEM warranty doesn't say anything about this, but I did see their retail warranty limits you to a maximum of 2 replacement tires per vehicle for "harsh ride or vibration." That's unfathomable to me, but I guess...

    OEM Bridgestone Tire Warranty

    Was finally able to trace the vibration issues I've been having with my brand new Laramie to some out of round tires. 3 of the 4 tires measured road force above 24 pounds, and one of them even measured 41 pounds! So I've basically been driving on 3 eggs since day one. My dealership says they...

    Additional storage compartment next to USB ports under radio?

    My Big Horn was a Level 2 but my Laramie is a Level I, which is apparently different from Level 1 (my rear seat doesn’t recline or fold, which appears to be the only difference between I and 1). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Additional storage compartment next to USB ports under radio?

    That top picture is actually from a 2022 Big Horn. Seems like a no-brainer to have it there if there's no CD player.

    Additional storage compartment next to USB ports under radio?

    What determines whether or not you get the storage next to USB ports 1 and 2 under the radio, like this? I had a 2020 Big Horn that looked like the picture above, but my 2022 Laramie looks like this: I'd love to have that little storage area. Is it possible to switch mine out for the other?

    Has anyone replaced stock springs with ORP springs but kept stock shock absorbers?

    I've seen this question asked before here but never answered. Looking for the least expensive way to achieve the 1" lift of the ORP and this would seem to be it, if the stock (non-heavy duty) shock absorbers can support it. Has anyone done it?

    Ride quality difference with and without e-torque?

    So I think we've ruled out E-torque but narrowed it down to either the ORP shocks/springs and/or the Falken A/T tires. Which of those would be more likely to have a bigger impact on ride quality?

    Anyone ever upgraded from standard to off road package suspension?

    I should have put "so smooth" in sarcastic air quotes. I know I must sound crazy, but I do not like the way the Laramie rides.

    Anyone ever upgraded from standard to off road package suspension?

    I went from a 2020 Big Horn with the ORP to a 2022 Laramie with the standard suspension. I hate the way the new truck rides (it’s so smooth maybe I’m feeling too much?) and think I would prefer the feel of the off-road suspension. Am I crazy for wanting to do this? If I were to do this, what...
