Big trip coming up next week. Hoping for an uneventful tow.
I don't regret the decision to buy my Ram 2500 diesel for a second.
Just turned 22k miles since purchase in November, about a third of that towing. Have been across Texas to Cali, through Death Valley, then up to Portland, and back across through Wyoming and back to Tampa.
I've done one service so far, at six months. Had both fuel filters done as well as the oil/filter change at a dealer in Portland.
I have had to add one quart of oil in that time, which I chalk up to break-in consumption.
Zero issues; engine pulls like a train.
I've enjoyed the tech as well. Last month I finally realized it had a feature on uConnect where you can search for an address on your phone, and then send it to the truck. (I had this on previous vehicles). You can then click 'go' on the truck's "Send 'n Go" app and navigate to that address.
I've been doing that the night before lately, so that the day's waypoints are already in the Nav system the next morning for our drive that day.
