I'm happy with mine but there are way too many recalls. Also Ram is still number one in tow haul stats......Ford still has to compare their F450 because its the only thing they have thats close.

If the integrated trailer brake controller stops working, there's no way to bypass it with a Reese unit as the computer starts going nuts, our 3500's system failed twice, and even with the brakes set for 10, you don't feel the drag on the trailer when on the brakes.
Transmission sucks, always hunting for a gear while going UPHILL, and never aggressive enough while going down hill unless you use the +/- on the lever.
Get a quality tuner and reset the factory throttle sensitivity, ours is like an animal now and runs like a raped ape.
The "jake" brake doesn't hold nearly as much as my former F450 with a BD exhaust brake, really lame.
Keyless FOB ignition is a fucking joke, it warns us the FOB has left the vehicle, even though it's in my pocket.
Steering sucks, really takes a half acre to spin a nut.
I never like the angle of the front windsheild, major blind spots when getting to an intersection.
Don't use all LED's as the canbus goes nuts.

Maybe don't buy a Dodge.

My friend doesnt go on this forum but yea he messed his dodge ram 1500 transmission as well so it's probably because he sucks at driving and he slows down but gearing down ( uses his transmission to slow down )
