I took off the ported intake manifold tonight........I was fighting with a "lean bank" engine code and think all the added airflow was causing a lean condition

I also felt that the truck did great at higher RPM and I lost some low end grunt

After disconnecting the neg battery cable and swapping the manifolds, I feel that I have all the power back

I will post the manifold up to sell............likely best to run it on a custom tuned 5.3L

The funds will hopefully go towards tires

On the 2019+ the issue is space between the rims and the upper ball joint. Seems like if you want to run a 12.5” wide tire, you need to change rims with a different offset, or run wheel spacers.

I hear you on the gas tank. My truck has a 24 gal.

Ended up switching my 19 from 275/60R20 to a 285/70R17.

Can anyone confirm......

2019+ Ram 1500 and Ram Rebel trucks use the same bolt pattern as the Sierra 1500 and Silverado 1500???

My service brake assist also came on today

Google says a ton of 14-18 trucks and SUVs were recalled
I highly recommend you look into this. It could mean the vacuum pump has failed or is failing. These new ecotec motors don’t pull enough vacuum off the brake booster at idle or in 4cyl mode so it has an accessory pump. It is lubricated directly from engine oil and failure of the pump can take out the booster as well as spread particulate into the engine oil.

Mine went out a few yrs ago and fortunately everything else was fine. Giant PITA to change.

I am calling a local dealership tomorrow to see when I can drop the truck off

Sounds like its a NHTSA safety recall, so warranty should not matter

If they are 6 x 139.7 (6 x 5.5) they should fit as long as the hub size works.

Bed cover sold FAST on Ebay!

I am going to get some 285/65R18 tires this week, just because they are CHEAP compared to other sizes I have looked at AND I know I won't have any clearance issues

285/65R18: 32.60 X 11.20

Current size:
265/65R18; 31.60 X 10.40
