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. Truck started having a shutter at 110,000 miles, first place charged for diagnoses and could not figure it out at all. Next diesel shop say $175 and referred to transmission shop. Transmission place says no it is maybe injectors. Forth diesel shop says maybe injector issue but can not tell which one says wait until it gets worse. One year later I am still driving it while it shakes. Two years now and still same problem. Dealers have different ideas so I am afraid to have a few unnecessary items fixed while trying to find the correct one.
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!!
