    We had a u-joint go out on our 2003 at about 50k miles.

    As for my 2005, I have no problems from 0-80. Once you start getting to 90, there's a little rattle. :waving:

    No problems here, I've had it up to around 90mph...If I were you I would take it in and have them look at it.

    once its at 90, the only rattle you have is your foot hesitating wether or not to take it through the floor. right? lol

    I may be incorrect, but this has been discussed @ TDR a bit.

    Check with the dealer, it may be a misalligned rear axel, if memory serves...

    Hope this helps.

    Premier -

    Yes, that's what I was talking about... the rattle of the diesel trucking down the road.

    I guess I need one of those face-dealies with a tongue in it's cheek. :nod:

    I have it too. It is the engines natural vibration, maybe some have it worse than others. If you'll notice when you are going 72mph your RPM's will be or close to 2000. It is normal. I had the service mananger ride with me and I have a 6 speed. I thought it might have been a drive shaft. We got up to 70mph and he told me to push in the clutch, VIBRATION GONE. Mine has the same vibration at 35mph at 2000 rpms. Go to DieselRam.com. I am on there all the time. Take it in if it makes you feel better, but thats a 6cyl Cummins for ya.
