    Nice PW, Mike! I added some Bushwacker flares recently. I had installed some 35x12.50x18 BFG KO2's and the amount of tire outside the body was just a bit too much:

    ot Yeah it sucked. Lots of problems with the truck after the repairs were completed. After a few weeks of fixing 2 or 3 problems a week, and having more piled on top of those, I traded it in. Purchased a 2014 2500 Ram CC with the 6.4L HEMI. :)

    Man...that is a fact. And I'm having to break in the engine twice! :lol: I think my EVIC mileage is around 11.5 overall and it's been mostly stop and go driving with a some mileage at steady speed on the freeway. But EVIC calculated mileage is usually not that accurate. Gonna drive over to...

    LOL...I'll wait just a bit before I try that. Gotta break in that new engine! Thanks! I'm very glad to have it back.

    All Right!!!! Engine is in. The tech was performing new engine diagnostics (running it, checking temps and pressures, looking for leaks, etc...) this afternoon and they should have it all buttoned up and cleaned for me by late tomorrow afternoon!

    And that's how you do that!

    They also have Mercedes SLS/AMG's, Ferrari 458's and the like in the fleet. You'd think speeding was a big issue there, eh? :D

    Old engine is out: New one is almost ready to go in: Will probably get the truck back early to mid-next week.

    And that's how you do that!

    That's awesome. You should see some of their patrol "vehicles"...cause they should be called patrol "exotics"...

    The air suspension is just for self leveling under load. The tires I have on the truck are actually pretty much the same size as the 20's that were on it stock. Besides, the rear air bags are tucked way inside vs. out at the corners. Nope...I checked. :naughty: Wrong part number! :(

    Update: I had a funny feeling that something was up at the dealer Friday so I headed down there after I put in my 1/2 day's worth of work. At my advanced age, that's about all I am good for, whether I am there or not! Sure enough, something was up. The store manager saw me walk in and...

    I tried to get them to source me a Hellcat engine...No go, darn it! :D

    Oh, in the grand scheme of things it's a minor issue. My dealer has done a great job throughout taking action and keeping me informed. I just wish I had my truck back. I'm starting to miss it!:-|

    To continue the saga... The store manager, a really nice guy I spoke to at length the other night, called me late this afternoon. He told me that the diagnostics were finished, they sent the test results to Dodge and got back a reply that Dodge approves replacing the engine. A unit will be...

    OK guys...I got a copy of the Service Bulletin which has also been issued as a Rapid Response Transmittal. The Service Bulletin # is 09-002-15. The RRT # is 15-038. I was wrong on the cause of the noise. It's the pistons!!! Apparently Dodge got some undersized wrist pins and they went into...

    Well, there's trouble right here in River City... When I purchased my 2014 Big Horn CC last month I noted that the engine makes one heck of a loud clattering sound on cold start up. Honest, it makes me turn around a look for the old 5.9L 24V Cummins emblems! The noise, which sounds...

    Got the spray in bedliner done: Now I can get the truck box back in! Got the stock muffler and resonator removed, put in a Magnaflow 12999 SI/SO muffler on it. Left the resonator off and made up the rest of the length with some pipe and a simple turn down: There just ain't...

    More mods to the new truck have been completed over the last week: Some Weathertech mudguards and floor mats: I'm still gonna need flares, especially when I get the 35 x 11.50's on the black beast. Got the light bar mounted and the PIAA LED's wired in:

    What's next? I'm getting the spray in bed liner done Friday, hope to have the PIAA LP570 LED lights mounted on the bar and all wired up over the weekend along with some mud guards installed. After that, a leveling kit, put the truck box in, mount the HiLift and we'll see what happens after...

    Thanks, everyone. I wanted another MegaCab because of how the rear seats fold down providing that big flat deck back there. But I don't need a diesel even though I do tow. 6.4L HEMI MegaCabs are rare. While the crew cab fold out floor is not the same as what I had, it is already being used and...
