Well I was tired of my Radiator Over Flow leaking all the damn time. My '02 Ram did it and my '04 was doing it now too. You can tell by looking at the seam on top of the overflow tank. Mine was always black and crusty and had fluid on it, always wet. After my last trip to Monterey and back I was fed up.

Fluid dripped out and was splashed onto my intake area and looked shitty. Which sucks cuz I had detailed the truck before the trip, including in the engine bay. So I had them replace it at my dealer this week. They love me and my warranty work there. :D Had that replaced and my upper and lower door seals in the last 10 days or so.

They replaced the Radiator Over Flow and Washer Fluid tanks with the new upgraded one off the '05-'06 Rams. The newer trucks have a combo unit, where the two tanks are side by side and mount higher on the radiator. Hopefully this new one does the job, I haven't heard of any problems with these yet. So if you are still under warranty, I suggest getting it replaced now and with the new unit.

Here are the part #s for the new tanks.

Here is a lil pic of what I was referring to. See how this one has a leak on the seam? You can see red fluid on it in this pic. Plus you could squeeze my tank and hear air whoosh in/out of it.

Do it to it. Should be free in my opinion, especially seeing as how they made an upgraded version and screwed you with the old one for so long.

No problemo Craig, glad they are gonna do you right! My truck was built 3/2004 and had the old style tank, glad the new design is better, probably cheaper for them too! Never assume this style is the only replacement, Craig had his fixed repeatedly and they used the old one. Just like when I had my door seals replaced they used the old style, not til I came in with the correct part #s did they do it right.

Yeah, that thing is huge. If I had the spare cash I would own one for sure.
