    Transmission issue while towing

    While towing my boat my truck gets to a high RPM (4,000 to 4,500) before shifting and will not get out of 6th gear unless I let off the gas and let it down shift. I have video of me going 55mph in tow mode with cruise control set and it wouldn't shift up, it stayed at 4,000 rpm until I let off...

    Exhaust Mods & Towing

    Looking for some help, I currently have the Carven Competitor cut & clamp (with stock resonators) on my 2019 Bighorn, 5.7. Have had it on for about 2 years but in the last few months the tone (and drone) seems to have increased and have not been working for me (or maybe my ears have changed)...

    2WD Rear coil spring suspension

    I don't like the deep bounce when I am towing my travel trailer. I installed the Air Lift bags in my coil springs. I would like a system that is more substantial. What do you recommend?

    2019 V6 Pentastar Reviews?

    Hey all. I'm strongly considering getting the 2019 Ram 1500 Big Horn with the V6. I'm tired or reading what the EPA says the mpg "should" be or how much the truck "should" be able to tow. What's it like in the real world? (MPG, towing, overall utility, etc.) Thanks!

    11,000lb camper towing with 2019 big horn

    So I just bought a used 2019 ram bighorn recently and I just discovered the max towing is only around 9,000 lbs since I have the 3.21 gear ratio. Would I need to upgrade to 3.92 gear to get the towing capacity of the laramies? I think they tow close to 13k? This is my first ram ever and I bought...

    possible to add power folding mirrors?

    Despite the window sticker verbage "Power Multi–Function Fold–Away Mirrors", my 2019 Limited Ram pickup mirrors DO NOT fold by themselves against the truck. There is a space for a button to do this, like my Tahoe, but Ram just put a plastic filler there - no actual button. Has anyone ever added...
