Very helpful info !!!! Where did you find this online?
I know it's available in your Owner's Manual but do you have a link?

Have not driven it a ton but some highlights so far:

No Rattles

Holds the Road

No Shaking

Overall I like the Interior Better (door panels could be tighter)

Love the Allison and Duramax only issue so far is figuring out how to make it hold gears longer with the 37s (can manual shift or use tow haul)

The rear sliding window cable was busted when I got the truck but in lieu of having the dealership take the seat out and dismantle the interior to fix it I sealed the window (never used it in the Ram)

The body of the truck is definitely higher quality than the Ram



Anyone know of a good product to get a dr pepper stain off the ceiling? (My bad)

LML Denali, order you some Meguiars All Purpose Cleaner Plus from autogeek.net. It is super concentrated so order the measuring system that is optional. It will last forever and should get your stain out!!
