    Thanks for that! That is nice to see. There is not much of a 2014 brochure out yet so the manuals give us something.

    There are brochures on ramtrucks.com (bottom of page under RESEARCH). The brochure for 2014 Rams does not say much but at least has a table showing which options go with which models. The 2013 brochure has much more info most of which is true for 2014. I've heard that dealers do not get printed versions because of cost cutting.

    That's all Ram provides. Their website is a work in progress and most popular info should find its way there eventually. In the meantime there are review and consumer sites that try to cover the details with varying degrees of success. It would be great if this forum had a section that organized all the latest specs and options so we could make sense of it all--not an easy task with a moving target! Even the people who should know stuff may not; when I was asking a Ram rep questions, he tried to answer a couple of them from an iPad through his corporate links but came up empty.

    Well said. I'm sure that most of us internet guys know more about the trucks than the sales people do. One thing I am trying to figure out is what is standard in each trim level(in detail). I know the little 5 page (really 2) brochure shows some but not all.I like your idea of creating a section in the forum for this.

    8 Quarts for a Diesel?? I realize it's only 3L but that seems like not enough. I would defiantly put an Am soil bypass filtration system on it. Or any vehicle you drive a lot for that matter.

    Other thing I don't like is if you use anything over B5 your service intervals get cut by 20%

    My 2.8l takes 6.4 quarts. I put an oversized filter on it, and it brings it up to 7 quarts. My old 7.3 IDI took 11 quarts. For a motor less than 1/2 the size of my 7.3, that is enough for me.

    Man maybe it's just the newer motors my for Gassers take 7qts and the diesels take 14.


    Now that you say it, looking at it that does seem about right. I wasn't used to my BMW though; 1.9L and 5qts of oil.

    Thanks! I'll probably know more than the dealer when my truck arrives!
