  7. Safest tube doors?

    I use the RR Tube doors, the construction is pretty good, they are almost as heavy as the regular doors, but not so sure how good the hinge is, you adjust them with some bolts. If t-boned the wall thickness of the Tubing is pretty decent, so how they hold up is unknown, but the aluminum skin...
  8. 50 MPGe - What that really means

    Lets face it, people buying these are in it for the green, 7500$ green LOL I am curious to see the early folks who buy these what they actually see for mileage.

  9. 50 MPGe - What that really means

    Well with 375 HP combined, I can see a lot of spirited drivers hammering these things which will negate the increase, expect a ton of these folks migrating to this section bitching about gas mileage. In my 392 SRT if I keep my foot out of it on the highway on long trips, ie do about 65 I can...

  12. Do Higher Trim Owners Look Down on us Sport/Sport S owners?

    What viscosity. I can tell you on the Ram forums there is a long thread where folks punted the Penzoil 5w-20 to the curb and switched to 5w-30 Redline and many reported back their valve train clatter and tick went away. I decided to try the Redline in my Overland, was running primarily PP or...
