  • PitSnipe (Kyle): Wow, I have not heard of this issue. 15 hour job for a $50 part is nuts. Hopefully someone that knows of this issue will speak up.

  • downs44: Got an 06 that just went through SMOD. Got everything replaced. Now my low oil pressure light is flickering on after the engine warms up and the truck is at idle. Doing some digging on the forums it looks like a common problem is the rear timing cover gallery gasket leaking and causes the symptoms. Looks like a 15 hour or so repair for a $50 part. Was wondering if anyone else has had this issue and any words of advise. To save some dialogue, the oil pressure sensor is about a year old and I changed the oil and filter after i noticed the light and that did not fix the issue.

No tow package? Dang! Nice ride, Sunny. Love the white. Even though I'd rather tow with a diesel, those Hemis are nice.

Yeah, its pretty goofy, the model I got normally has atow package included but when it has the 20" wheel package installed the tow hitch gets removed as part of it... A tow hitch can go on it, its just one of those weird manafacturer things that if we add this we remove that... I did get the upgraded 3.92 rear axle which is better gearing for towing, it will max tow 10,350 lbs. And my rig and trailer wont touch that number.

It also has uograded entertainment system and dash display, bluetooth, speak to change stations, shows tranny temp, rad temp, oil temp, mpg's, tire pressure at 4 corners and on and on... Pretty sweet. Im happy with it.

Nice truck. I am pleased with the new Ram. I also enjoy the product. They have come a long way the 8 years that I have been working on Dodge.
Also the framing for the hitch is there. Just need to add the reciever part. 3 bolts holds it on and only takes about 15 min to install. Fishing the bolts through the frame is the fun part.

Elaborate a little more on this because when I look underneath it, it appears the hitch is already there but doesnt come out the rear, its like its tuck up behind rear bumper... Sounds like I just have to purchase the final part and install? Please explain a little further, not familiar with this...

Yeah. The frame of the hitch is tucked under. All you have to do is buy the final piece. Its the piece your ball slides into. It wil bolt to the frame under the rear of the truck.
