    Add another windshield crack

    Some thing here. Woke up in the morning with a crack from the bottom lower driver side running halfway up. There was a very small impact point. The dealer was nice enough to cover it for me considering all of the other issues. However, I argued a good deal. There is absolutely no way a...

    2019+ Rams with Lifts/Levels, and/or aftermarket wheel tire setups

    I had the 2" Motofab Leveling Kit installed on my Laramie yesterday. The ride doesn't seem to be affected. I wasn't initially in a rush to get it leveled, but I'm pleasantly surprised; it looks night and day better. Below are measurements from center of wheel to top of wheel well. Cost was...

    S.O.T.A. Scar and Nitto Ridge Grapplers

    How’s the ride? Waiting on my 275/60s and thinking I may switch the order to 55. I like the lower profile but don’t want to compromise ride quality.

    275s on 20 x 10

    Is anyone running this size? I’m looking at Nitto Ridge Grappler P rated and the width skips from 275 to 305 (all sizes in between are LT rated). I’d rather stay at 275 to have a flatter side wall vs a 305 and the tires are $100 less each. The specs say good up to a 9.5” wide rim. However...

    305/55/20 Ridge Grapplers XL

    I’m trying to make this decision now. Looking at 20” after markets and debating on Terra vs Ridge and E vs XL. I’d like to keep a lower profile and wondering if sticking with an XL rated will offset the lack of sidewall. The Terra G2 has a mileage warranty and wondering also if they will last...

    305/55/20 Ridge Grapplers XL

    Did you ever make this switch to the XL? I’m wondering if it’s that much of an improvement over E rated to be stuck with limited sizes? Also saves about $100 per tire!

    305/55/20 Ridge Grapplers XL

    Wow, what a difference the spacers make! How is the ride with the XL rated vs the stock Duelers? You probably have the same amount of sidewall. I’m debating on XL vs E and Ridge vs Terra G2.

    Bad fuel mileage 5.7 hemi

    13.7 MPG at 4,000 miles, mostly highway, 2WD, mid 70s on the highway and average on the pedal. I’ve stopped remote starting to try to conserve fuel. I haven’t noticed a difference. I’m not thrilled with the fuel consumption.

    Fingers Crossed...Brake Squeal Resolved

    I’m having the TSB performed in a few weeks. I’m averaging 13.7 MPG with 4,000 miles, which are overwhelmingly highway miles. I’ll update if MPG improves.

    I’m not sure how to find the build date. However, a TSB was issued, and the parts are on order. It should be another two weeks.

    Did you notice a reduction in MPG with the 35s?

    Rough Country or Readylift 3.5" lift

    That’s the gloss finish I assume?

    Price negotiated from MSRP

    See my comment below. I can’t make heads or tails of it. Maybe dealers have flexibility in how they are applied.

    Price negotiated from MSRP

    I’m not sure. I’ve purchased several vehicles and can never find a rhyme or reason as to which incentives will apply. It differs at every dealership even though the rules are supposed to be specific. That’s why I find it’s best to shop all of the dealers and see what they offer.

    Price negotiated from MSRP

    Reedman Toll in Springfield but that doesn’t mean that’s the best dealer. It depends on inventory, and timing for each dealership. I’d be happy to give you more details on the process if interested.
