This vehicle received all service at Chrysler dealerships and yet had way too many issues. It is used for occasional towing of a 5th wheel (8500 lbs.) and a four wheeler on a light trailer as well as a 17 ft boat. Entire front end was replaced at about 30K miles. Next the front engine seals replaced at about 60K miles. Next at 102K and the front seals leaking all over driveway again this time at my cost of $3800. Soon after transmission pan leaking just under $500 for seal and service. Listed are just the larger items. My maintenance cost on this truck has exceeded $8000. At 110K miles and has been in the shop for weeks.
Everything about this truck is awesome.. from the lockers to the winch to the disconnecting sway bar. The only drawback is the clattering/ticking/lifter noise that makes these Hemi's sound like an old beater with a bad valve. I wouldn't recommend a Ram with a Hemi to anyone. Read up on the annoying as hell Hemi tick and engine clatter. It's embarrassing to drive a $52K truck that sounds like a sick diesel. Buyer beware!! Dealer says it's normal even though it started this at 2k miles!!
