Just bought a new 2011 Outdoorsman Ram 2500. Loving the truck but need some help. Have less than 300 miles on it and after driving it a distance have begin to notice a smell familiar to breaks being applied. Any clues? Doesn't seem this should be normal; am gonna give it another few days then take it in if it persist.

is it like a burning type smell? if so its probably from the regen process. i noticed it a few times before i delete all the emissions crap.

give it a few more miles, Bud. it's new. the burning smell is the regen process. also run your EB all the time! keeps the veins in the turbo from sticking, if you are gonna keep it stock.

Its normal, Mine is a few months old and did it until I removed my DPF. Yours will change after some miles. At first I though it was on fire or melting badly

Regen for sure. The exhaust heats up to about 1100' when this happens so theres your burning smell

The smell or the regeneration process?

Smell? Who knows.

Regeneration? Life of the vehicle unless deleted.

I would say it's oils on the exhaust and motor burning off from assembly process, and/or DPF....... much like mine smelled!

Might not hurt to do a search and study up on the regen/regeneration process if you are not familiar. It helped me to know a little better what was going on.
