    Tow hooks absent?

    Hey guys, recently got a 2019 Ram 1500 Sport (canadian one) and realized there were no tow hooks on the front...a little disapointed (I get stuck often haha). Anyway I can ask the dealer to install them or maybe add these aftermarket? Given tow hooks are usually attached to the frame of the...

    Stock big horn speakers V.S alpine

    That's what I thought. I've looked at a sport with and without the alpine system and the speakers look pretty much the same minus the alpine logo on the center speaker over the dash. Might stick with the stock ones then...seems like a marketing thing not really worth $500 imo

    Price negotiated from MSRP

    On the Ram website it says $8500 in discounts included in my build. Should that price be considered MSRP or should I add the 8.5k into the internet suggested price to get the actual MSRP? I've build up a 2019 Sport for $60 000 give or take. How much do you think I'll be able to negotiate this...

    Stock big horn speakers V.S alpine

    The sticker says the 2019 sport comes with a 10 speaker system...and the Alpine upgrade is 9 speakers. Im getting very confused. Im guessing the sport/laramie models have upgraded speakers compared to the tradesman/bighorn but still worse than alpine?

    Active air dam / grill shutters disabling?

    Anyone know if you can turn the active air dam and grill shutters off in the UConnect system? There are a lot of chunky rocks where i live and don't want to risk damaging the air dam even if it does go up when it hits something. Also it would be nice to be able to close the grill shutters when...

    ParkSense / Navigation worth it?

    Could you get in the truck without running boards or would it be too awkward?

    ParkSense / Navigation worth it?

    While on the topic of saving some cash, for someone who is about 5' 9 can you go without running boards? For $750 that seems like a waste of money if I don't need it

    ParkSense / Navigation worth it?

    Thanks, I'll probably skip the Nav then. Any experience on how much data the carplay uses from your phone on lets say a 2 hour trip. Only thing I'm worried about is remote places where cellular signal is at bare minimum and sometimes non-existant. Not a tech person but is there anyway you can...

    ParkSense / Navigation worth it?

    Do the sensors easily get blocked by dirt or snow? I live up in canada so the front of my car is constantly bombarded with snow and rain in the winter...

    ParkSense / Navigation worth it?

    Hey guys, just wondering what you thought about the parksense system on the 1500. For me to option them it would cost about $750 but I'm not sure how useful they are. How useful are they in parking situations when you already have a backup camera...Do they malfunction often in rain, mud, or...

    Aftermarket/OEM Skid plates?

    I've ordered my new 2019 1500 Sport but for some weird reason the Sport is the only trim without a skid plate option! Would it be possible to order one OEM or does anyone have some suggestions for some aftermarket ones? Cheers, Victor

    4 Auto on Pavement?

    Does anyone know the difference between 4 auto and 4 high? This question might have been answered elsewhere but I'm still a little confused. Is 4 Auto just a seamless switch between 2wd and 4 high or is it a completely different system like AWD? From what I gather you cannot drive in 4 high on...

    5.7 Weird Lag when Accelerating??

    Alright thanks. Just worried that it was a common issue. I'm pretty confident in ordering one now. Any of you tried an acceleration fron 0-60, and if so how smooth was the acceleration?

    5.7 Weird Lag when Accelerating??

    Just test drove a Longhorn with a 5.7 Hemi today (no e-torque) and had some issues. The driving was smooth and problem free but when there were some straightaways, I gave it a lot of gas (almost floored it) and there were lag points at wierd times...Not just in the beggining but when I hit...
