Yes, 2014+ will have the coil sprung rear. It will also have 4.10 gears instead of the 4.56 in the 2013 and older PW.

rugby Not sure if it's the same engine but my tuner buddy was saying that the pistons in the 6.4 are weak if you want to do power adders of some sort. They did that in the challengers so you could buy the 6.4 and throw a blower on it and have a hellcat for less.

Any issues with the 2015 model year?
The springs are only part of the problem, the rear track bar is the other issue. The problem seems to be when the truck starts cycling a lot, the rear track bar causes a decent side to side motion. When towing this can cause some instability. The stock springs are progressive, the initial is fairly light, and then a much heavier 500ish lb/in rate. You basically want a decent amount of tongue weight to get the rear well into the secondary spring rate and keep it planted.

I swapped in some 1" taller lower rate soft ride coils in the back to get rid of some of the harshness. I then found it had too much "but wiggle" when hitting large bumps and dips at highway speeds. Towing was fine however as the suspension sagged a bit. I threw a 3" rear track bar raise on it and that fixed that issue when empty. Its solid and drives great now. I do wonder if a track bar raise would benefit a stock height truck also.

These are the only problems I've seen so far. I do wonder if the rear link design being so high and leveraged on the rear axle will cause premature bushing wear? The rear bushings are larger than any I've ever seen on a 3/4 or 1ton truck however.

Dont know of any issues specifically.

I would suggest finding a truck with 4.10s if possible if you plan to tow a lot.

Does the GM 6.2L require premium fuel?
IIRC you need premium to see the 420/460 numbers but is still just fine on 87.

95steel 19 gets the HD8speed auto. I haven't driven one but have read reviews. All of them were extremely positive.

For 2014-18:

Front AAM 9.25
Rear AAM 11.5

Those may have changed in 2019, but Im not sure.

Not sure if anything has changed on the 6.4 over the years. Seems like some people have issues with the mds system. You can go with the hellcat delete, and it addresses the issue.

Harvester of Sorrow Hi-Jack continued...

Pulled the trigger last weekend on a 2015 F150 3.5L EB with 56K miles. So far the truck is a dream.

I really like the layout of the F150 over the Hemi.

You can get a 6.2L V8 in some F150 trucks and GMC/Chevy offers their 6.2L V8 in the Silverado/Sierra 1500s........but only one V8 is available in the Ram 1500?!

What's the power specs of the current 5.7L Hemi?

pcorssmit I first looked at getting the windows version (since we didn't have any Android devices), but ended up getting a $50 Fire 7 tablet to run it. I haven't used it a lot, but so far so good. As a bonus, I can use it to stream music in the garage instead of having to use my phone.

Android only is a bit of a drag. Search led me to RamForum. There's actually some decent tech there and a good bit of traffic.
