How long to Break-in Ram 1500?
« on: April 21, 2005, 10:29:59 AM »
I have just purchsed a new '05 Ram1500 with a 5.7l Hemi and a 3.92 rear end.  My question is how many miles would you consider to be enough for a breakin period before towing my TT.

Interesting question!  I moved your posting to the TT section where people more likely to have the answer might see it.

Have you tried the technical support customer service of Chrysler?

I would guess that about 500 miles would be enough.  Best to check with the Chrysler techies and see what they recommend.

You should be able to find a answer to your question at  DodgeFourm.com  I'll include the link at the bottom of this page.  I have a Dodge Ram 1500 and am a member of DodgeFourm also.
When you go there click on Generation 3 Ram I'm sure somebody will be able to help you out.

thanks for the info and links.  I got my answer @ the dodge forum.  500 miles seems to be the magic number.  Thanks again
