  1. I wasn't aware anyone still bothered with this given that basically everyone has a phone with bluetooth. Why pay extra for OnStar calling when you should be able to do the same, assuming you have a smartphone? 1. 15 minutes. 2. Common on a lot of vehicles sadly. 3. Probably a hill-hold feature if you park on an incline? Just guessing.
  2. The new Ram is a nice truck but after multiple issues with both my Jeeps and the dealer near me being unable/unwilling to fix them and what a POS the 2013 Ram we have at work is, I'm finished with FCA. In a few years all these new customers will learn the same lesson I did.
  3. First off I have no idea why they called it a speedo cable cause that isn't what it is. It's just a harness that plugs into an electrical motor. This post refers to a truck with power adjustable pedals. Do you have this feature? If not, this will not work for you.
  4. Driving in M5 will not hurt anything other than a loss of fuel economy at higher speeds. In town in every automatic I've ever owned I've locked out overdrive when possible. Driving in M4 or M5 on these trucks is how to do that. M6 is essentially the same as D, AFM will will activate and make that awful noise. I also feel like it causes hesitation. You need to check the oil level on your dipstick periodically and look for the level dropping. I drive in M4/M5 and switch to M6 on the highway generally. On long trips I just use D but there generally is no real difference other than I think grade braking is disabled in "M" mode.
  5. You never know when Canada might invade the northern US... I won the suppressor in a raffle. I’m only into it for the tax stamp so why not?
  6. 2017 Fans staying on

    From the manual: The electric engine cooling fans may run after the engine has been turned. off. This is normal and no service is required.
  7. Nine months to the day my tax stamp came in and I was able to take the suppressor I won last fall home. It is a Q Half Nelson. The gun is an AR pistol in 300 Blackout. Upper is from BCM and the rest is a mix of parts that I built over the course of last year. With subsonic ammo you don't need ear plugs. Pretty excited with how it came out. I'll probably need an adjustable gas block to run supersonic ammo.
  8. Wifi issue

    OnStar is not connected via satellite. It uses AT&T towers.
  9. With the right gearing I don't see why it won't work. Look at old Toyota pickups or something like a Samurai with 2-digit horsepower on 37s or even big stuff like 40s. They run like 5.30 gears though. haha
  10. I was all set to buy a Ram but before buying I changed jobs and the new place has a 2013 Ram as the shop truck and it has been nothing but problems and the dealer can't fix it. After two Jeeps that had issues I would never buy another FCA product.
  11. No factory tint in the front. The dealer may have added a film (front tint is legal in some states here but not others). Rear windows the glass has the tint built in. The Bak tonneau are nice. I am not familiar with those wheels. Lots of people here just buy steel wheels for winter use.
  12. Muffler swap with J pipe

    Yes. The flapper is part of the muffler. The only one to have this is the Chevy Performance exhaust which is a Borla system between the Touring and S-Type.
  13. The US is weird with emissions equipment. California has been able to set their own emissions standards since the 1960s or 1970s and over time, several other states have decided to follow their standards. California, Oregon, Washington and all of the northeast with the exception of New Hampshire use California emissions so any truck from those states should meet CA standards. If you are buying new I believe for 2019 all the trucks are 50-state compliant but I am not completely sure. The rest of the states used the less restrictive federal emissions standards. The cluster can switch between MPH and km/h on the speedometer but I do not think you can change the odometer or secondary gauges and displays (transmission temp, oil pressure and so on) to metric units as easily (I am not sure how important that is). For lighting you may have some luck with a GM dealer in your area to see if they have lighting systems that meets European regulations as I think you may have to change the tail lamps too. US and Canadian trucks have red for both the brake lamp and the turn signal and I think European regulations say the rear turn signal needs to be amber. For bed covers I assume you mean tonneau covers. There are many types. I have a soft "roll-up" cover from Extang called the Revolution. I am quite happy with it. Truxedo is the other major maker of the soft type. Bak makes many nice hard covers but they are more expensive. There are lots of vendors out there for these but I do not know how buying from overseas would work.
  14. Muffler swap with J pipe

    I have the Borla S-Type on the truck. Installed for a week. Even in 4-cyl mode there is no noticeable drone. I'm quite impressed with it.
  15. FN 509 Midsize. Great Glock 19-size pistol. I'll be ordering the holster for it this week.
