    Welcome to the forum.

    Having a near new 2014 is quite a treat to read about. Read around here and learn more on how to keep it running like new.

    Welcome Ronald enjoy the forum & the truck. Useful things to know; keep an eye on your coolant reservoir or degas tank. Some 14s had oil coolers that didn’t get the shaving cleaned out and the shaving would wear through an internal passage and cause oil to get in your coolant. If you see the reservoir tank go black you know what has happened. Heads up 5 years from when the original owner took possession your 5 year warranty is due to expire. You should find out when this is and get any leaks documented at a dealership prior to this expiration so that it can be covered under warranty should a problem arise.

    Also many EGR coolers develop a leak (thanks EPA) and you start losing coolant out the pipes so again keep an eye on the degas tank to make sure coolant stays to the seam or higher. If in time it develops a leak the degas tank coolant level only drops so far while rest of the system continues to drop wreaking havoc. Last if you do the dreaded AEM update to collect some Chrysler bucks the emissions stuff such as the EGR cooler gets its warranty extended.

    PS under your avatar you might consider adding in your general location & model like abj below you did. Both can be helpful when fielding questions. Such as using a bra and or oil heater in the northern winters or telling the Big Horn owners they could benefit from a less restrictive grill when towing in the hot summers.
