I bought a 2015 4x4 crew new in 2017. It was a leftover without all the bells and whistles. They practically gave it away. The guy said everyone wants shiny rims and bumpers etc. I knew I was putting aftermarket stuff on it anyway so I bought it. 27 mpg on my way to Austin from Houston. First thing I did was get a green diesel tune. It added 2-3 mpg and 20-30hp and eliminated turbo lag. Since then I've added 4" lift, 35" nittos. Lost some mpg but still more than any truck you can find with 35's. 70k miles late and the only thing I do is change the oil. Zero issues. Best truck I've owned. The tune also doubled my def life.

I just turned 61k on mine. Had a steering wheel button replaced that was glitchy from the factory when I first got it. Other than that, the truck has been a pleasure to drive and I just got a $3k check for the emissions stuff. Couldn't be happier personally.

Still waiting since May 13th to wrap up my no longer than 6-8 week recall check processing. Love the truck. Hate the bull [censored] from RAM. Dealer won't even discuss the pedal lag issue. They suck

My servicing dealer didn't put it into Ram's system for a month that they'd done the recall work. So that could be part of your delay and there isn't much Ram can do about that.

Just read this article. Not sure I believe it but let's hope it is correct.

Mine ran better after the tune. Weird. I hope they don't force another flash.
