Seatbelt use. Like most folks these days, I'm a habitual seatbelt user. However, I'm also an intelligent, thinking, focused driver who can decide to 'not' wear my seatbelt when moving a few feet. There is an irritating chime that sounds when the truck is moving (forward) and the seatbelt is not fastened. Thankfully there is an easy fix to silence the nanny.... ------------------------------ #turbodiesel

Have you heard of ranger bands. There are many uses. Bind items together, silence noisy straps on a rucksack, burn as tinder, etc. How do you use yours? @superessestraps puts them on their paracord straps robs fire down gear.

#recycle used #bicycle inner tube for #fire tinder. Each #rangerband is cut to 3/8" wide will burn for approximately 2 mins. Store them on a full size @biclighter for ease of carry and use.

Not a bad view from this miner's cabin high in the #sanjuanmountains Looking to do some more wandering and exploring in #colorado over the next week or so. Should be fun with the "package" I picked up yesterday. #colorado #explore #wander #wanderlust #overland #adventure #outside #optoutside #summer #sanjuanmountains #thisislivingoverland #silverton @visitcolorado @americanadventurist @outdoorx4 @utahadventurejournal

WeatherTech floor mats and adjustable spot mirrors. This 2017 Ram/Cummins has rubber flooring instead of carpet, which is cool. But that doesn't mean I don't want floor mats to catch and contain debris, particularly the wet, slushy, and muddy stuff. These are WeatherTech's mats made specifically for trucks with rubber instead of carpeting. Only in for a couple days, they seem to have a nice amount of grip, and are not as slippery as the OE rubber flooring. Ram's factory towing mirrors are perfect for my uses, but for over a decade I've been adding these 3" adjustable spot mirrors to all my trucks. They are just inexpensive, K-Source brand from a chain auto parts store, but work well. ------------------------------ #turbodiesel

Original, 100% stock. Every truck purchase and build starts with baseline measurements and data collection. Not even floor mats have been added. Full of fuel and ready to drive, with 4,600# on the front tires, and 2,800# on the rears. The 7,400# gross weight is 360# less than our very similarly equipped Tradesman crew cab. ------------------------------ #turbodiesel

Accelerator pedal mods update. I removed the pedal assembly from my ’14 and gave it to the 2017 (same part number), as it already had a hole drilled for the additional return springs I run. The added resistance improves control and enhances finesse driving, particularly with a manual transmission and on bumpy roads. The top of the springs are attached in a slightly higher location on the ‘17, and the added tension allows me to use a nickel instead of a penny (compresses the mounting tape more). The second image shows my low-tech but functional high-idle mod also already on the 2014 pedal assembly…one eyebolt, velcro wrap, and a small turnbuckle. ------------------------------ #turbodiesel

Driving down Donner Pass toward Truckee, California. I got off I80 at Soda Springs to drive the historic and beautiful Highway 40. It's better for the new truck to see different speeds, on/off the throttle (accelerator), some light braking, etc., to enhance wear-in. ------------------------------ #turbodiesel

Cummins ISB. While shooting my 'still 100% stock' photos, I remembered to capture the magic sound of the medium-duty, inline-6 diesel engine that changed the light-truck market forever. Since 1989. My proclamation is: "Inline-6 Cummins sweet music". 😀 ------------------------------ #turbodiesel

Stopped in the Tahoe National Forest for some ‘still 100% stock’ beauty shots, and to let the new diff gears/oil cool for the second time. Enthusiasts consider gearing break-in after a ring & pinion swap, but rarely remember the ‘new’ gears in new trucks. While damaging the gears is less likely with taller, stock ratios, why not give 'em a break. ------------------------------ #turbodiesel

White letter tires are not my thing, I’m a black sidewall guy, but the OE rubber does complete ‘the look’ and are part of the Snow Chief Group. I’m really lovin’ the black grille, the RoadTraveler 2014 Ram 2500 has chrome. Engaged 4WD briefly for the second time, also did it on my short, five mile test drive. ------------------------------ #turbodiesel

Accelerator pedal spacer. One more quick modification before driving off the dealer's lot. I added a spacer to the pedal to greatly reduce the 'take up' before the fuel requested is delivered by the PCM. I am a stickler for drivability, and precise control is even more desirable with the less forgiving and positive connection of a clutch and manual transmission. One of the advantages of owning an extremely similar truck is that I already know many of the mods and upgrades I want. This was just to get me off the lot and home...more on this subject later. ------------------------------ #turbodiesel

80+ psi with no load is ridiculous, and offers a poor ride, suboptimal traction and wear, and is potentially dangerous. I understand the reasons why this is 'required' on a 2500-series truck, but strongly disagree. I run 'appropriate' pressures for my loads. I'd not even left the dealership yet here when I pulled my valve cores to air-down to more reasonable pressures. 54 psi in front in about 40 psi in the rear, still more than necessary for this empty, new truck. It is the responsibility of the driver to properly maintain and setup their vehicle, this includes routine use of a quality tire gauge and 'appropriate' psi for the load(s).

Bought it! I had a good experience at Lodi Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, and really liked my salesman, Anthony Cruz.

I couldn't help but notice this nice Jeep Rubicon in the showroom, maybe I should consider buying one of these instead? I've owned a couple jeeps, including a Rubicon, and surprisingly new ones are about the same money as a Cummins-powered truck. But in fairness this is a more expensive Jeep, compared to a less expensive truck, apples and oranges. Just matters what we want and need our rigs to do. 4WD shopping. 😀📷☕️👍🏻
