    Oil change prices

    Yep, typical of your previous postings, you continue to prove the point I made in my earlier post…one more dealership idiot.

    Oil change prices

    I don’t insult every dealer employee as often as possible - only you! I know it gets to you more than most and love ruining your afternoon!!!

    Oil change prices

    Not the case with my Ecodiesel. I took it in with 400 miles on the odometer and a leaking transfer case seal. Service Manager had the nerve to ask me if I did any maintenance on it…I damned near died with a stupid question like that with 400 miles on the odometer. He said they’ve never seen...

    Oil change prices

    That is the bare minimum I’d do on any vehicle. With my Ecodiesel, I’ve been following my standard procedure mentioned above PLUS getting the receipts notarized, obtaining three non-familial witnesses to execute and get notarized a form attesting to the fact they watched me do each maintenance...

    Oil change prices

    I use a method which paid off on my wife’s Jeep Wrangler that had the 3.6L develop serious issues. It was a 2014 Wrangler with the 3.6L and I did all the oil changes. I had the same on one of our Cummins and one of our Hemi’s (minor issues that the dealer wanted to document routine maintenance...

    2021 eco diesel gas mileage

    I’m old so I’m not in near as big a hurry as I used to be so keep my speed at 65 on the interstate. The truckers set their speed in the right lane and let the “bunny rabbits” fly by so I decided to adopt the practice. I’ll speed up when passing do as to not hold up traffic and it seems to work...

    RAM lighting rant...

    Now I feel bad for wasting everybody’s time as it appears my rant about not having a GAU-8/A Avenger 30mm cannon mounted in the grill is minor. 😉

    OBDLink MX+ and Ecodiesel

    Yes, I leave it plugged in 24/7 and have not had an issue to date.

    Hellwig? Hell, yeah!

    Many of us have done it. You'd think as many as Hellwig has sold on this forum alone that they could afford a 5 cent sticker that says "This Side Down" or "This Side Up". ;) It doesn't bother me when I mess up and my good friends on this forum help me get it corrected but that "Walk of...

    Anti Theft for 2022' 1500 Limited

    That would be such a cool video to see in action as the perpetrator is clawing at the windows to get out…bet it would go viral overnight but then we’d see the thugs wearing ear plugs when they go to break into a vehicle. Then again, yellow earplugs on someone walking down the street would be a...

    MOPAR OEM PARTS DIRECT - aka Grand Junction CJDR of Grand Junction, CO - DO NOT PURCHASE PARTS ONLINE FROM THESE FOOLS

    Agree, I submitted it yesterday. And I just placed my order with Accessory.Parts - extremely competitive, fast response via this forum and great to deal with!

    What would you buy?

    My 21 Big Horn Ecodiesel has 1,731 lbs payload and 10,131 max towing.

    MOPAR OEM PARTS DIRECT - aka Grand Junction CJDR of Grand Junction, CO - DO NOT PURCHASE PARTS ONLINE FROM THESE FOOLS

    I have no issues paying a restocking fee (and have done so in the past without issue) unless the parts department screws up an order and sends me something I did not order…like the primer’d mirror caps instead of the PR4 caps I ordered. As for the restocking fee these fools charged me, I placed...

    MOPAR OEM PARTS DIRECT - aka Grand Junction CJDR of Grand Junction, CO - DO NOT PURCHASE PARTS ONLINE FROM THESE FOOLS

    I didn’t realize we had a MOPAR parts vendor on the forum. I’ll send you a PM momentarily. Thanks!

    What would you buy?

    I LOVE my Ecodiesel and wouldn’t recommend purchasing anything else in the 1500 lineup. I owned two 2nd Gens and now this 3rd Gen…night and day difference, and IMHO nothing to be afraid of as it appears they (FCA/Stellantis) learned from their mistakes.

    MOPAR OEM PARTS DIRECT - aka Grand Junction CJDR of Grand Junction, CO - DO NOT PURCHASE PARTS ONLINE FROM THESE FOOLS

    Agree 100% with BAM. They have always been stellar with every purchase. I tried to go cheap with the other guys and cheap is typically never good. I’ll stick with BAM or my local dealer from now on.

    Rebel with P0088 code

    When is the last time you had it in to the dealer for a PCM/ECM update? I feared it was a pump issue but in reality, all it took was a simple update. P0088 is a generic code, so it can have many potential triggers. Here are the most common: Failed fuel pressure regulator or fuel control...

    MOPAR OEM PARTS DIRECT - aka Grand Junction CJDR of Grand Junction, CO - DO NOT PURCHASE PARTS ONLINE FROM THESE FOOLS

    A heads up for anyone thinking of purchasing from MOPAR OEM PARTS DIRECT as these guys are crooks. When you place an order online, they give you a price for shipping however it is an estimated price. I've found their price of shipping is actually 40% to 50% higher than the "estimate" price...

    Extended Warranties

    You can purchase the extended factory warranty from Zeiger and finance it at 0% for 12 months. Don't get Zeigler's price and then take it to the dealer where they will roll it into your loan with interest. If you purchase from the dealer, make them match the price and 0% for 12 months. If...
