    Towing impact to battery / alternator

    I've been towing a lot this summer with a new 2020 Ram 1500 Long Horn 5.7 non-etorque hemi. It has the stock 160 amp alternator (not optioned up). My dashboard digital gauges indicate the charging system is normally around 14.2 v. However, on long towing days (>4 hours), most of which have...

    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?

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...

I'm looking at an exhaust for my next mod, Borla S Type is at the top of my list at the moment. I also want to get a...

    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...
