Stock tires are 33" diameter. My 05 Ram came with 275/60/20's which are 33" in diameter. Sadly, the crappy GY HP's gave me the best mpg. In the 210,000 miles since new, gotta say every other tire...

I guess I'd want to know why the first motor failed. See if it was well taken care of, or it was driven till it stopped. Transmission and differentials been serviced? Seems a bit expensive.

Sorry for your disappointment. I've had great luck using "hemifever" and my dyno tuner TDP. Running a pretty hot cam, shifting at 6200 rpms and it shifts very firm, so, don't know. Have an old Diablo...

I like the Moog ones with the grease fittings. Try NAPA if you can't find. At Rockauto, you might want to talk to a human, rather than guess. Sometimes it's better to talk to a human.

Get that cylinder borescoped, if everything looks ok, then do a leakdown test. Could possibly be a lifter, pretty rare, but. I had a lifter go bad in my 05 at 175,000 miles, but it made a clacking...
