2012 Ram 3500 Laramie 4dr Crew Cab 4WD LB DRW (6.7L 6cyl Turbodiesel 6M)


Traded off a 2008 Ram 3500 Mega Cab for a 2012 Ram 3500 Crew Cab. Huge improvement over the 2008. Interior quality is much better. Seats are very comfortable and good for long road trips, leather quality is excellent. Audio system sounds great. Very quiet for a diesel and more quiet than the 2008. Feature overload, still have not figured them all out yet.

Best Features

Cummins Power! Remote Start, Smooth Automatic Transmission, Quiet, Nice Ride. The truck seems to be very solid and well put together. Good attention to detail, this truck looks and feels much more expensive than it is. By far the best interior of any truck on the market. Basically you feel like your in a upscale Mercedes.

Worst Features

Steering does not seem to be as good, truck seems to wander compared to the old truck, not sure if this is specific to just my truck or normal for these new trucks. I plan on having the dealer check it out. Back up camera does not turn on immediately when turning truck on and putting truck in reverse. Annoying message on radio during start up that you have to agree to their legal message that you will be careful when operating the radio while driving. Wish there was a way to remove it. Head room seems to be less than previous models. Truck sits lower than similar 2008 truck, don't like that.

I recently purchased a 3500 DRW with the 6 speed auto, someone suggested I remove a foam filter from the air filter system (just on the back side of air filter apparently) I am wondering if anyone else has heard this?

I think people remove the foam filter to increase the sound of the turbo. I would suggest leaving the air filter alone. The stock system works better than aftermarket cold air intake systems on the market.
