My 2013 RAM 3500 (New Holland Blue) had a replacement RAM Air box.....it was equipped complete with sensors, lid, and air filter.
Yeah, I wondered about that, but didn't look inside, just checked the sensor connectors.

Just back from a run up to Indiana, now at almost 490K.

Ltngdrvr By the way, they also replaced the fan shroud, which I had just replaced only a short time back, and there was absolutely nothing wrong with it, just replaced as a matter of course with all the other radiator bits and pieces.

So, if anyone needs a like new radiator fan shroud, the part that is the plastic/polyurethane/rubber part that seems to deteriorate over time, I have one available.

troverman In a frontal collision, just front bags and seatbelt pretensioners fire. Side and curtain bags stay put. Still a mess you don't need.

Truck looks good! My 2018 says "Heavy Duty" on the pad under the hood.

Jimmy N. You never did the air bag recall, did you, Ltngdrvr?
Or maybe that one's for my 1500...because they can go off whenever.

Oh, yeah, surprised me too.

And, of course, it wouldn't have been just one air bag, steering wheel, seat, and side curtain probably. Would have kept me from being able to drive it home with just the mechanical repairs done.

And, my chest hurt way longer than just the next day, hurt so bad I couldn't take a deep breath for over a week. Still gives me a twinge if I sleep wrong.

Gator1 I'm for a dashcam also. I had a guy run me off the road in my PU we were both turning left at the light him in the left lane and he just came right on over into me, and up the curb and into the ditch I went. The whole time this guy was waving his hands saying I cut HIM off...It's a good thing my passenger and I got a good look at him, and his little RED truck, we will meet again I'm sure. Really, get a dash cam! Another time I got sideswiped in my PU by an undercover police car. I was sitting at a stop sign and this black cruiser blew through, swerved and clipped my bumper. The guy swore I hit him and he should know because he was driving a cop car. Funny thing was when he stopped he got out the passenger side to ask me what happened.... So I'm wondering the same thing what are you doing driving like that in a cop car? I take a look inside, and there's a teenage girl in the back seat curled up trying to hide and scared to death. She was the driver, and the car was the guys fathers going for a joy ride with some under aged jail bait. Would you believe I was to blame? Get a dash cam!!!

Gator1 Not to doubt your story, hit and run is a serious thing. But, who hit who??? Lol I doubt the driver even felt that little love tap you gave him if he was loaded. I've been hit twice in my KW, and both times someone had to tell me I was hit. One from the rear like you, and one from the side he slide under my trailer and then I ran him over. Never felt a thing. In both cases the guy that hit me was drunk, speeding, and tailgating.

gsbrockman Who vandalized your license plate?

Ltngdrvr So, I just got my truck back from the body shop.

Looks pretty good, lots of pretty new parts.

One new part I wasn't expecting was the cover between the radiator and the grill top, apparently an updated part from RAM because it didn't have the "HEAVY DUTY" bold lettering on the old one. Really wasn't anything wrong with the old one, but they replaced it anyway.

And, my truck is about 100 pounds lighter now, they vacuumed the driver's side floor!
