lol, 1) yes, their is a supply problem with the radiator, but not a HUGE issue, just go get another one, I have had 2 guys get theirs replaced and it is fixed now

2)???? and this is any different than past trucks???? It just depends on your dealer

Believe me GM and Dodge are having their problems as well, but if you consider all the new emissions, turbo set-up, computer, the 6.4 has really had a good record for being a new engine

The radiator leaked, but they replaced that no problem. I broke the left front axle, but that was my fault. There is an annoying sqeek coming from under the bed, I think its the carrier bearing and thats about it
