Prep yourself. My owners manual is 876 pages! No lie!

Congrats on a wise pick!
You're gonna have a permanent grin!

Just keep the oil and fuel filters changed on schedule and prepare for a long, long ride. That motor may outlast you. The truck will wear out before the motor.

Never let it run out of fuel....

Join a Ram diesel forum, and make friends with those of the 2015-2016 model years... you will be glad you did. Books can tell you a lot, but those that have lived through the trials can tell you more.

congrats on going to the dark side.

I have never seen gas nozzle marked diesel with green cover!!! Larger diesel nozzles won't fit in the Ford DEF tank, you make mess trying to put in - you might get the smaller gas nozzles in the smaller DEF tank filler. I guess Ram could be different, never checked. I guess you could take the blue nozzle marked DEF put in your diesel tank.

The green gas nozzles all over around here. Amaco's was great for this. And lately they've been switching all the green diesel nozzles to yellow.

Diesel nozzle's in Canada are yellow.

I buy the DEF in a jug from the service station and don't have to worry about yet another color of nozzle.

It all happens....google it, and you can search on here. A dude put def in his diesel tank and posted it on here a month or two ago.
