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.

yes, I've got those but they sure don't tell much :(
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.

LCR if you're asking about engine oil, the capacity is 10.5 quarts with filter.

There is an 800 number in the users guide that you can call to get printed copies of the Owners Manual, Diesel Supplement and the 8a.4 radio guide for free. You just give them you VIN and in about 3 days they show up at your door.

1-866-726-4636

You must be the first registered retail owner.

Just been reading the manual and found this Interesting quote
CAUTION!
All air entering the engine intake must be filtered. The abrasive particles in unfiltered air will cause rapid wear to engine components.

If this is so why not filter the EGR. Just saying ��

same question !!!! I just purchased a 2016 ed. All I read is related to an OWNERS manual...NOT a service manual. 'In the old days' (2004 for example), you could buy a Helms manual(s) for GM vehicles. These were service manuals...not simple owners manuals. If you find out, let us know.

Just a thought

Anyone reading the owners manual notice that the engine redline per the manual is 3200 rpm?

The tachometer redline on the instrument cluster shows the redline at 4300 rpm

Hopeeveryone reads the manual

Yes, misprint in the owners manual. Good catch.
