Been to tomball- which seems to be the best, but is way out of my way.
Then to mac haik which was a shit show.

- Dead pedal is an issue for sure, it seems to get better with updates, but it's still there. I've learned to deal with it.

- I was having MAJOR trans problems with shifting and lugging, but those have been resolved with updates

- Had the third brake light issue, I caught it before it let too much water in

- truck drifted right, I pushed for a new axle, but ended up getting an offset balljoint under warranty.

- I could never get the stock firestones to balance, so they swapped em out for Toyo AT2's and the truck went from drifting right to pulling hard right. I ended up putting a Carli high mount stabilizer on to help with the pull. Truck drove straight after that.

- I ended up burning through the toyos at around 45K, switched to cooper ATP's and gotta say, I love em. Funny thing is the truck started pulling left with the ATP's. Removed the stabilizer and truck drives straight as an arrow now

Out of the gate the truck was nothing but problems, but I really haven't had any issues in the last year. I'm still pissed I'm running an offset joint on a brand new rig.

Not looking forward to the days when I start having emission and tech issues though. Before I hit 100k on this truck, I'm probably headed back to DMAX High Country or Denali.

My pop's 3500 CC just burned through his factory Kuhmo's in 20K miles on his truck. Kinda bullshit that an E rated 126 tire is so shitty from them. They should be a minimum 40-60K tire.

I'll be running out of bumper/bumper warranty in 5K miles- so the next few months. If I run into issues, it's getting deleted.

I plan on keeping it for a while since I have to depreciate it long enough through my business to make it work- but I'm not crazy about it and will probably go back to ford when available.

Got it back yesterday.
Talk to Nathan, dude has his head screwed on right. He did everything I expect a service advisor to do, and did it well. Hell, I may try to steal him and have him work for me.

I take my '14 to Autonation Dodge in Katy (formally Allen-Samuals) and they do a decent job. I just rolled over 60k miles and its been in for a new driveshaft (balancing ring at the t-case fell the fuck off) and for a NOx sensor in the DEF system. Both replaced under warranty. The emissions runs out at 80k and once that happens ill probably delete it. Remaining warranty is out at 100k. I love the truck. Pulls straight and i got about 57k miles out of my toyo MTs. Switched to Cooper STT pros for a change in scenery. Its bone stock other than the 35s and the window tint. Pulls great and gets decent mileage. Ive heard the horror stories and i hope they never happen. Plan on keeping this one for a while as im tired of having a truck payment.

My 13 3500 5.7 gasser has only had the one wiring issue, and a recall on the track bar in 20k miles . Been debating getting a 28' 5th wheel toy hauler, and sell my slide in camper. The truck rides stiff as shit empty , so we were looking at 2500's with a diesel or 6.4 gas. I only drive 8k a year, not sure if I want the DEF drama. Reading this thread make me lean more to a Tradesman 6.4 gasser
