Winter is on its way, but we bet that doesn’t faze you. You’re a Ram truck owner, ready for whatever nature throws at you. Your Ram truck is equally up to the challenges of tough winter weather — with just a bit of maintenance and preparation.
Advanced vehicles like today’s Ram trucks don’t require extensive winterizing like trucks in the past. Simply review your owner’s manual and service records and make sure your maintenance schedule is up to date. Check all your under-hood fluids, giving the engine coolant level special attention. Inspect your tire pressures and tread wear, and/or install winter tires if you use them. From there, you’re pretty much good to go.
Before winter arrives is also the perfect time to give the windshield wipers and washers a thorough inspection. Snow, sleet and ice will give your wipers and washers an important job this winter. Replace worn wiper blades; check the washer nozzles for proper aim and delivery, and fill the washer fluid bottle with winter-grade windshield solvent. It doesn’t hurt to pick up an extra gallon to stow in the cab. We’ve all tried it both ways, and this we know: Winter driving is far more relaxing and enjoyable when we’re looking through a nice, clean windshield. Enjoy the holiday season, and stay warm!
