Hi everyone...
First post on this forum, but I'm sure it won't be my last. Just got my new Ram 1500 QC Hemi today. Can't believe how nice this truck is. Black, fully loaded, I'm lovin' it...

Any special break in period on the hemi?

Or anything else I should know? :help:

Thanks

If you have a coinholder in your center consol you can be a member. There is a thread to join, but I am way to drunk to remember it. You can think of a coold number and join. By the way, lose the drop in liner, get a rhino, and debadge that sucker. Then get a DVD player, and you will be up to date!

To answer your question, the break-in period is the first 500 miles or so, and during that time it's best to keep the RPM's on the low side, and vary the speed as much as possible when on the highway. Don't gun the engine too hard during this time period either. Yeah, I know with those Hemi's it's hard resisting the temptation..... but your Hemi will thank you later for being kind during break-in. ;)

Welcome to DT! Now you need to set up a gallery. The coinholder is in the center consol, it is removable, if you have one you can't mistake it. About the debadge, if you have a Sport, I say debadge all but the HEMIs. If you have an SLT with chrome bumpers and stuff, I say leave all the badges except the dealer ones, they go well with the other chrome stuff.

I have a chrome theme on my truck, and still de-badged. Take 'em off the tailgate and doors. Leave the Hemi, unless you will want to race people. When people see that badge, they usually back off. It's like taking the GT off the side off a mustang; you become a possible sleeper car....

Thanks everyone! Pics coming as soon as I figure out how to fix my scanner(My wife's [email protected]#$ing cat pissed on it), or I borrow my friends digital camera. Probably the latter of the two. I think the scanners toast.

I have the slt with crome and I'm trying to picture it debadged. Maybe, but the hemi stays. I'm damn proud of that.

need to shoot that cat ....mumble,mumble,mumble

Don't gun the engine? I figured you of all people would know that the owners manual says that you should apply short bursts of wide open throttle durring the break in period.
