    Chirping sound while turning

    Are you sure you're not accidentally in 4WD high?

    Dumb question- 4 Auto

    Totally fine in AUTO mode. My truck did not come with locking rear diff so I often use 4WD Auto when I need to aggressively get going from a stop. I'm at 130K and no issues.

    Transmission Oil change and other fluid changes.

    Yes, because the filter is part of the pan itself. You can either replace with an OEM style or get a PPE pan with a replaceable filter. I did PPE because I'm hoping to keep this truck for lots of miles.

    Just leveled and added spacer to my wheels

    @dlakeman FYI, your insurance company would probably cover the incident...BUT they would very likely then drop you like a hot potato and you may be looking at High Risk insurance rates...if you can find it at all. You're smart to err on the side of caution.

    Ticking noise, 6000 Miles Hemi.

    This is one of those times where it pays to read a few of the posts before commenting :LOL:

    Transmission Oil change and other fluid changes.

    As I believe 1BADRAM is alluding to above, make sure your mechanic knows the process for drain/fill...it requires careful temperature monitoring and leveling the transmission.

    Transmission Oil change and other fluid changes.

    OP - if you plan to keep the truck, then yes, for sure do all the fluid changes. The tranny refill process is a bit tricky but certainly doable, the diffs and transfer case are super easy.

    Transmission Oil change and other fluid changes.

    If I might offer an opinion on this...you may want to consider having a reputable transmission shop do the change, and here's why I say this. Dealerships are often not familiar with doing these fluid changes as they'll hide behind the "lifetime" fluid thing, so it's not part of their daily...

    Anyone have their windshield replaced yet? Decision!

    I had that windshield installed in June of 2022...Safelite's aftermarket brand. They did a great job and I've had no issues, even with the ACC, etc, and I feel lucky that my installer was a 21-year veteran of the industry. Of course, that windshield got a star crack in it about a year ago but...

    MPG improvements with different tires?

    The weight of the tires seems to make a significant difference, so often times you'll see a big hit when switching to an AT tire. I've even seen non-AT tires that are ~6-7lbs heavier than OEM tires. On a separate note, I run the OEM Bridgestones in summer and Michelin Defenders in winter...

    Bad BCM Module

    You didnt happen to have your windshield replaced or tinted recently, have you?

    Just curious

    I've got a 2019 Laramie 4x4 Crew. Pretty highly optioned. I have 129K miles on it. One manifold replaced under CPO warranty, third brake light leak I fixed myself. 12" Uconnect with zero issues. I replaced the brakes at about 110K I think, but only because the rears were shot. Otherwise...

    Setting my WDH

    Using measurements only is a bit of a red herring. It is WAY better to get your rig to the CAT scales and do the three measurements method.

    Towing capacity confusion???

    I think too that most people overlook the fact that those running boards you installed, your tonneau cover, the tools you stuffed under the rear seat, the napkins in the glove box, the spouse/kids/dog, the beer cooler, and the WDH itself ALL count against your cargo(Payload) number...this is why...

    nitto ridge grapplers on 2021 ram 1500

    The member (name escapes me) that does the youtube series about high mileage 1500 was running those for a while. I found this video, should help you out.

    Increasing Payload in RAM 1500 with air suspension?

    Did the limited have the flip up towing mirrors? That undoes the ability to have the 360 cameras. (I'm not 100% certain this applies to Limiteds, but I know it did with Laramie Level2 packages in 2019)
