Haven't figured out how to start a pole so you experienced ones tell me how. Now since I don't know how to start a poll, just report in. Hemi owner's how many miles have you logged and did you have any problems? Me personally I have an '03 with 54,000 and have had no problems.

my '06 has alil over 29 thousand on it, no problems whatsoever. I just added my flowmaster exhaust, so Im going to have a big grin on my face every time I drive my truck from now on. I couldn't be anymore pleased with my truck. Obviously I didnt buy it with the expectation of doin somethin like 40mpg lol. I enjoy my truck year round, but I especially enjoy in situations like I experienced last winter : I was out on a Sunday, real wicked bad snowstorm. Drivin up a snow covered road, cars and 4x2 trucks were skiddin off to the sides of the road due to lack of traction and then here I come in my big black Dodge just motorin up the hill like it was nothin. My truck felt like a rolling fortress. Definitely the best vehicle Ive ever owned thus far in my life, and I dont know if I will ever buy another car ever again. :rck:

Yeah Sgt. Bratwurst what clips? I was reading a post in 3G Ram general info and someone with a 3.7 has logged 140,000 miles. That is why I wanted to start this. I am still waiting on that Hemi Owner who has logged a million miles, uses no oil, drives it like he/she stole it, and the only problem is a hard pull in the front end either left or right depending on what side the gas station he/she is passing is on LOL. Seriously though, I would like to see some really "HIGH" numbers with little or no trouble reported. I think DC has some awesome engines, but the real life behind an engine is maintenance!

Well I was refering to the rear end clips and after I posted that I realized that you wanted motor info. Mine has been great, the only problem I have is the tick and that will be corrected really soon.

EGR Restrictor plate for your CAI, that will take care of the tick.

Brian06QuadCab,

You can only correct it to a point. The Hemi is known for a valve train tick which actually is normal and hurts nothing. Other engines with similiar valve trains have ticks too such as Mustangs, and the LS1 Chevy engine. The tick is amplified if you install a CAI. I did not see a CAI in your signature so I am thinking your induction is stock. That being the case I would say you will have to live with it, could be a fix that I am not aware of though. If you have installed a CAI you can install a EGR restrictor plate to soften the tick.

Well then I will have to do some more research before I decide on what kind of CAI I want to install, if any. You're correct, I'm running the stock induction with a K&N filter in the box. Rumble Bee 883 has a "old school" CAI on his truck and I may consider that setup for my truck as soon as he posts all pertinant info on it.

Actually there is a case number associated with the tick. If you call Diamler Chrysler and ask about it and there is also a thread associated with this topic. What they are doing it replacing the exhaust valves, if I am not mistaken the valves are not think enough causing the tick. As soon as I get my new beehive springs I will have the warranty work done and the motor guy has agreed to also install my Mopar Performance cam at the same time free of charge.

Almost 65K on my '04. No issues at all except a $36 outer tie rod end and one set of front brake pads and one set of tires, all at about 62K.

I was disgusted when I drove my neighbor's '02 1500 QC SLT and looked down to see....only 23K on the clock! He has a company truck so the Ram only moves on the weekends.

Doesn't it? If it weren't for the wifey taking the kid around all week, it'd sit more.....she doesn't like driving the truck since it was lifted....but that's just fine with me ;)
