Thumbs up What did you do to your Ram today?

First off, I apologize if there is already a thread for this. I looked and used the search function and did not see one.

I'll start off:

I changed the oil and went to synthetic, changed the transfer case fluid, killed the door chime and sealed the LED 3rd brake light the previous owner neglected to. Last night, I installed my old 12's under the back seat.

Washed it last night for the Toronto RAM meet this morning. There were seven Rams present for breakfast at Zets. Good Times.

My truck is new ( 263 miles ). So, I tightened the wheel lugs and checked the tire pressure.

Some stupid person before I owned the truck overfilled the transmission fluid and it leaked out a ton around the dipstick and made bubbles in the fluid. Its raining now, so I didn't have time to drain fluid. Hopefully there's no damage to the transmission.

On the bright side, my third brake light doesn't leak anymore.

Rotated tires, set tire pressures to 37psi., torqued lugs to 130ft-lbs. and set spare tire pressure to 40psi. I have big respect for all of you DIY'ers! We would make my Pops, GrandPops, and Great GrandPops all proud God bless their souls. Hahaha!
