I wrote to Ram Brand CEO Fred Diaz and told him how much I loved this truck and that bearings don't just go bad 2 months out of warranty. I further said I thought considering the factsI felt Ram Brand should, at the very least, cover some of the costs. I got a call this AM from one of the CEO's guys telling me that they are sending me a check to cover the complete cost of the repairs. My brother in law and my daughter both had '06 Ford Diesels. Both trucks were just junk and after several years and several lawyers Ford ended up buying back the trucks. Ford needs to take a lesson from Dodge on customer service.

Yet I'm still a dodge fan.
2007 Dodge 2500 quad cab 4x4 5.7L Hemi auto and slowly progressing build.
FYI: I've got a bunch of extra 14ga wire in red and black. Its a thick jacket 41strand wire (likely MTW wire) verse typical 19strand automotive wire. It has good flexibility but factor in the thick jacket. I'll ship out 100' coils for $18 (I can go 50' of ea for that too) if anyone is in need of wire.

Best truck I had in all those years pounding around the back country with BLM was a 1980 3/4 ton Power Wagon-put it in four low granie gear and you could go anywhere! Only problem was the radiator was to small, used to over heat all the time, but once we changed it to a bigger model, worked like charm. As a side story, when I was over in Thailand when I was in the army in the 1960's, we had two Dodge PW's in our unit that kept right up with our tac 3/4 and 2/1/2 ton military rigs when we were out in the bounies-they always impressed me after that and who knows, may yet buy a dodge-if my old ford ever gives up!

It is just about to roll over to the 400,000 mile mark.
Same engine. Same transmission. Same differential.
It is need of some help now, but up to this point has been flawless !
We can't complain after almost 400,000K miles.
Now we are racking the miles up on our 2010 Dodge Ram 3500 Diesel.
Think it is up to 110,000K already.
Great trucks !!!!
