I have a 1998 Ram 1500 that I changed the exhaust on. I removed the cat and put 24" glasspacks on it with 3 1/2" tips. I also changed it to a true dual exhaust system. Some may think it's too loud, but the only time you really hear it is if you start rodding on it. Your best bet would be to weld the pieces together because depending on how and where he drives it, the clamps may not hold properly. Hope this helps

#142 of 180 1996 Dodge 4x4 woes
Dec 04, 2007 (6:40 pm)
I have a 96' Dodge ram 1500 extended cab 5.9 with automatic transmission. Put it in 4 wheel high today, truck was hopping horribly, so I stopped. Truck proceeded to make a few big clunks. I disengaged the 4 wheel drive and I made it onto somewhat clear pavement and it drove fine. However, when I put it into 4 wheel drive high or low, the 4 wheel drive light comes on, but the front tires to do move, the. The truck just sits there and clunks something bad. What am I looking at hear? Possible 4 wheel drive linkage? Somewhat mechanically inclined, and would love to fix this problem within the next few days because more snow is on the way (I live in Wisconsin). Please, somebody help.
#143 of 180 Oil Change requirements
Dec 29, 2007 (6:51 am)
I have a 2007 2500 with the 6.7 deisel. My owners manual says to change the oil at 7,500 or 15,000 depending on driving conditions. I plan to change it every 5,000 - 7,500 miles but my oil change light on the upper console goes off well before that. Is this light just based on milage or is there some type of sensor that determines the need to be changed? I've only had the truck for 6 months and have 10,000 miles and the light went off around 4,000 the first time and long before I reached 10,000 the second. Any suggestions? you can email me directly at barryetscox.net

Question: I just bought an '07 Dodge with 5.9L Cummins. It only has 3500 miles right now, but do I need to be using a fuel additive due to the low sulfur fuel?
Also, my truck is a dually. I have a problem with rock chips on the dually fenders. Do the front mud flaps work good to prevent this or should I install full length running boards? Any suggestions?

1 - No... my '05 3500 runs just fine on ULSD, same engine.
2 - I have front rubber mud flaps, but they don't do a whole lot. I had full length boards on my 1996 3500 dually, and while they helped a little, a rock will find the truck no matter what you do.

Hello, my maintenance book says that i should replace my spark plugs at 30,000 miles. Does that seem like low miles to replace plugs on todays vehicles
#147 of 180 Change axle fluid? 2006, 1500
Jan 11, 2008 (1:31 pm)
Is it critical to change axle fluid every 15,000 miles as it says in the maintenance schedule? at $147.00 a pop it gets expensive. Is this a job for a novice to tackle?

I waited until there was 6000 miles before changing over to Mobil 1. Using the OWNERS MANUAL as a guide and change every 6000 miles along with tire rotation. Other than Nitrogen filled tires, and a Tonneau cover, I haven't made any other alterations and get over 15 mph in city and 21.9 mpg on interstate while maintaining 65 mph when I can which is most of the time since most of my highway driving is from Sanford, Fl to Ringgold, Ga

Here, again, check the OWNERS MANUAL! I have worked at a dealership that uses their own menu, and while it seems to make sense, it is EXTREMELY costly, and (I think) unnecessary)

Please provide the step-by-step for changing the plugs on the 06 Hemi. I found them for the 05 (had great pic's too) but the 06 is different. I'm working on the 30k tune up.
