2005 do and donts

New here and have a 2005 ram hemi. Regular cab short box. Love this thing so far. My question is what do I need to look for, fix, mod, etc? Going to do a tune up in the next few weeks including plugs, oil, filter, fuel filter. Just want .02 from yall. Thanks

Watch your mailbox for the pinion nut and airbag recalls. If you recently bought it i would stay in contact with the old owner to make sure you get the notices and be proactive asking Chrysler/local dealer to get on the list to be fixed Don't be afraid to drive it but do get it checked out if you feel there's anything at all weird in the rear end. When the pinion nut comes loose it does so quickly and the rear end goes boom....pretty ugly carnage most of the time.

Welcome to HTC! The 2005 year is a good year to have. There is no serviceable fuel
Filter on the truck though. Like stated get the recalls done and enjoy. For a stock truck there really is no donts.
