So I went to Columbus to pick up the truck, my dealership did a dealer trade for the truck I wanted. They let me drive their truck down to get mine.

So no one has said anything about it being an Ecodiesel yet?! I came on here and posted that I was going to the darkside and buying a Hime. After talking with Keith again and doing some research of my own, I found out they moved the EGR pickup tube back behind the muffler so it is not picking up super heated exhaust gas. This should keep the Gen III trucks from having cooler issues. My 2015 was going on it's fourth cooler and with the cost of the DPF unit I wasn't going to keep it. Here is to hopping Ram got it right this time. So you guys are going to have to put up with me for a long time ;)

Well yes and no. It still has the high pressure EGR just like it always did before, and these are still getting sooted up just like before. It's just that they added a low pressure EGR to help minimize it a little, but even then it's getting post-DPF heat that's several hundred degrees.

Nice looking truck. I really liked that color when I was shopping. I think it's great.
