    Danggg!!!!! Going to show this vid to my "Dodge is the only real truck" friend when he gets in to work this morning. Probably will be in total denial after he sees it. " It's a lone wolf"

    I remember my dads Jeep had this issue too...I don't think it was that severe, but it occurred after he lifted it. I believe they put a new steering rack in and it was good to go.

    That happened to my dad in his old ~1998 Dodge Ram Cummins. He had no steering at all though. Slowed down before heading off the road. Could have been bad. Rams are know for the death wobble. That is why there is a name for it. Something with things coming loose or breaking in the steering.

    His truck was stock.

    My friend Jeff, "Mister Dodge" just watched the vid. He goes "damn" that's f'd up. Right about then the Dodge logo in the middle of the steering wheel appears "violently". heh heh. He walked away without saying anything. :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::infantry::infantry::infantry::infantry::infantry::oldglory::oldglory::oldglory::oldglory:

    Holy smokes!
    I have two friends who just bought 2015 Rams. I act all happy for them but really in my mind i am cringing. They paid for their 1500 Rams more than i will pay for my 2016 Tundra.
    Hehe So do you guys think i am making the right choice on a Tundra?!

    The new Fiat Rams are probably good to go. The 2013 Daimler built and below Ram owners are the ones that are screwed.
