'81-'93 D/W image placement[edit]

Butting in again, my suggestions above were based on the incorrect assumption that it would be extremely difficult to create or obtain a new image; it now sounds like to do so would be easier that I thought. Assuming one or either of you could take a new photo, I think that would be ideal - not least because you can both (indeed already have, to some extent) discuss in advance what form the photo should take.
Could I therefore suggest the following: use the grey image for the time being, Scheinwerfermann will attempt to obtain a new image of the red vehicle which addresses some/all of the concerns expressed above - specifically with regard to cropping and background (though I feel background may be difficult, and we should be flexible) - and you replace the "grey" image with the new "red" image once it's available?

That would certainly work for me. IFCAR (talk) 20:37, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Same here. I'll see if I can chase down the red truck again (or find another). —Scheinwerfermann (talk) 20:42, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
Hokay, done and done. Found the same truck in the same car park, with the owner busily snapping pictures of it! He was getting ready to sell it, had washed and cleaned it, was taking pictures for an advertisement, and didn't mind my taking pics. I am pretty sure this new image satisfies all the image conventions, and all of IFCAR's stated objections to the previous red-truck photo, and I think it is a much better quality image than either of the two we were quarrelling over. —Scheinwerfermann T·C05:09, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
Most definitely. Very good photo.
Incidentally, I also saw the gray truck recently. It has shed some parts since I photographed it. IFCAR (talk) 13:49, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Manufacturer[edit]

I just want to know who in the world changed the manufacturer to General Motors...I mean, seriously?! Only a medically-certified retard would think the Ram is made by GM —Preceding unsigned comment added by 209.143.0.64 (talk) 03:42, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

looks like it was an abusive IP editor operating under two IPs. —Scheinwerfermann T·C04:21, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

No engine options for 3500,4500, & 5500[edit]

I believe currently they aren't offering anything but the 6.7 for the chassis cabs. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dana60Cummins (talkcontribs) 02:51, 23 August 2009 (UTC)


The 3500 Chassis Cab has the option of the 5.7L HEMI. I'll fix the paragraph. TBird100636 (talk) 03:04, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Cool. Thanks again.--Dana60Cummins (talk) 18:04, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Dodge RamRam (automobile) — The "Ram" is not part of Dodge anymore. I suggest to move the contents of this article to Ram (automobile) as an article about the Ram itself with Dodge Ram redirecting there and Ram (brand) replacing the current Ram (automobile). 65.92.25.137 (talk) 21:55, 14 December 2009 (UTC)

I suggest the article stay at Dodge Ram, since the vast majority of the article discusses trucks under that name, and it is still the best known name of the truck throughout history. Ram and Ram (automobile) can have disambiguation links to Dodge Ram. --Vossanova o< 22:01, 14 December 2009 (UTC)
The problem I see with it is the official name of the truck. Since it is not part of Dodge anymore, it would be unproper for Wikipedia to have an article of a car with unofficial name. It's as if you would have "Win 7" instead of "Microsoft Windows 7" for article name, for example.
I have nothing against keeping the phrase "previously known as Dodge Ram" and allude to it in the article, but for accuracy, I think it would be better to rename the article and keep the name Ram as much as possible. A person typing in "dodge ram" would simply be redirected here too. 65.92.25.137 (talk) 01:45, 15 December 2009 (UTC)
Changing everything this soon will just create more confusion. You're welcome to point out whatever official information there is about the brand change, but realize that even Dodge dealers are slowly transitioning. When we learn more about the Ram brand, and it has been official for at least several months, then we can consider renaming and moving information here. Bear in mind that recent events aren't inherently more important than historical ones, see Wikipedia:Recentism. --Vossanova o< 16:39, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

Sorry guys, I didn't see this before, but the current name is just Ram, not Dodge Ram. Yes, Dodge Ram is its legacy name. But what about other legacy items that were later renamed, such as the call sign at a popular TV or radio station? Just bringing up a point. Jgera5 (talk) 19:23, 1 February 2010 (UTC)


Notes[edit]

The Dodge Ram name should remain as the vehicle is still listed under Dodge vehicles in the corporate perspective.FeralLynX (talk) 00:43, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

Transmission changes[edit]

Propose adding a section on the transmission changes for the late 2007 model year. the 6 speed G56 was changed in gear ratios. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Overseer19XX (talkcontribs) 14:17, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

Add it. Find the gear ratios and source. Post here or there. If you post here though, it'll allow someone to make a nice table.--Dana60Cummins (talk) 17:52, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

Flagship pictures.[edit]

With the Ford Super Duty flagship being a fully loaded MD pick up. It's only appropriate to put a fully loaded Ram. Not a light duty half ton. This truck is also the most interesting being you can add the most wiki links for options: Alcoa rims. American Axle axles. Eaton rear dif. Alpine Electronics sound system Cummins B I can go on but this Ram seems to do a good job of acquiring parts from various companies. --Dana60Cummins (talk) 22:28, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

Oxymoron[edit]

Anybody else notice that "Dodge" and "Ram" contradict each other? If you dodge something, you're not ramming it. Personally, I'd rather have a vehicle that dodges than one that rams, but that's just me. Listmeister (talk) 16:50, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

Dodge ram mega-cab dually[edit]

How do I wire up and install seat in a 07 dodge mega-cab — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.197.217.60 (talk) 14:44, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
