hey new to the forum here from SASK, CA. i bought my 2014 eco longhorn back in May in Ontario while visiting home. as soon as i got in this truck i new i had to have it. i have now put 29,000km on her and i just love it, however a few things ive noticed, the park assist sensors dont like water and freezing as i often get a wipe sensor message when they are clean, and that the goodyear wrangler SRA stock tires are not meant for the truck. had all four tires split at 6000km. goodyear covered 170$ a tire so i put GoodYear Duratracs on and put a front and back leveling kit in. even with the new tires and lift im still seeing 10-11 L/100km avg on the hwy. ive also towed 8300lbs behind it while being over payload limit driving through northern Ontario and the truck didnt seem to mind at all. incredible truck so far. leveld up.jpg new.jpg

Welcome to the forum and thanks for sharing your experiences with your RAM. I think you are putting it though a little more work than most of us so we would love to hear how well it operates for you in the coming months,

That sucks about the tires. Haven't heard that happening with other peoples. Do you think you did anything in particular that may have worn them down faster?

Thanks!. well i was thinking that possibly the 2600km trip i made while hauling 8300lbs behind it was enough to cause the split. but lets face it. those wrangler SRA (P rated) tire has no place on a heavy half ton. i believe with its factory towing specs that RAM should be putting a (LT rated) tire on these heavy halfs, but at the end of the day i know very little about tires.

How have the heavier tires affected your ride,noise,etc? I know I have to upgrade mine and here we have to run 8-10 ply to keep the tires from getting cut on these shale roads and lots of trucks here run the goodyear wranglers,but they are sold out of 20's.
