    Vehicle Service/Maintenance with Dealers

    Go to where you feel you get the best service. You are not bound to the dealer where you bought the truck. This works for routine maintenance and warranty repairs.

    Rear Window Issue?

    If you're referring to the rear window surround being cracked the answer is yes. You didn't state what year/model you have but if it's a 2019 5th gen and newer there are numerous posts on this forum about this. Do a site search and you will see at least 2k posts on this. If your truck is...

    Roll up bed cover

    There are two retention straps on the underside of the cover. When you roll the cover back you slip the straps into the tabs to secure the cover in the rolled position.

    Back headliner on my 2019 dodge limited is wet

    I have a 2019 1500 limited that is not leaking yet. Several of you in the thread have recommended a marine grade gasket available at Lowes or Home Depot as a replacement for the third brake light OEM gasket. What exactly are you referring to when you say marine grade and what does it look...

    Look at these dealer fees- they still do this??

    Agree with you on this. If at the last minute the dealer tries to stick you with some ridiculous fee your response should be that either the price of the truck is lowered by the same amount or the trade in value is increased by a like amount. This is also true for any so called non-negotiable...

    SiriusXM Plans & Strategy

    I have had Siriusxm for four years now and never paid more than $100/yr for the All Access plan. Giving a credit card is no big deal as when the renewal notice is sent at their prevailing high rate all you do is call and tell them to cancel your service. They always come back at a lesser rate...

    Water Bottle Storage Hack?

    Buy two 20oz bottles and use both holders in the center console (just kidding).

    Blocked/Blurred license plate

    In my neck of the woods folks blur their plates in an attempt to defeat red light cameras. They are a big money maker for local jurisdictions.

    Water pooling on Truxedo LoPro.

    Interesting. I replaced the OEM tailgate liner with a weather tech liner and found the tailgate was difficult to close unless the tailgate was closed first so the header seal was on top of tailgate. Also, my addled brain came to the conclusion that if the seal was not on top of the tailgate...

    Water pooling on Truxedo LoPro.

    I noticed from your pictures that you have open stake holes in the back. I have stake hole plugs like in the picture from Rick J above. No water in the bed at all even when the pooled water sloughs off over the tail gate. Also, I assume the rubber gasket on the cover is on top of the tail...

    Water pooling on Truxedo LoPro.

    I have the same product and the same problem. I don't worry about it much as it will get only so deep and sheds off when moving out of the driveway. I would worry if it leaked into the bed but that has not happened.

    How do I know if it is a 5th gen?

    Another dead give away is the 5g badging is on the hood while the 4g badging is on the sides of the front panels. Were you told it was a 5g when you bought it?

    AGM or Lead Acid Battery

    WOW!!! Six months later you are the only one to answer my original question. Thanks for your input. My first thought was that if it didn't have the AGM markings it probably wasn't. I even asked the service guys at the dealership and they were split on AGM or LA. I would have thought that...

    Tried to order a ram

    Here's an interesting web site to help determine MSRP vs Dealer Invoice vs True Dealer Cost. When buying a new rig information is power. https://www.car-buying-strategies.com/dealer-invoice/ram-1500-4wd-prices.html

    Took ownership of pre-owned ‘19 Limited, service cost??

    I did the same as you. Go here to register the truck with mopar and get all the info you are asking for. https://www.mopar.com/ramtrucks/en-us.html Full synthetic oil and filter at my dealer runs about $100. I change it when the oil life gauge says its time or 7500 miles, which ever comes...
