Florida sun is intense already.

Parked for about an hour and half with windshield facing direct sunlight (10am -11:30am). The TRX center console plate got pretty hot. Hot enough to feel the sting when I placed my arm on it getting in.

Was not expecting that. Something to be aware of as summer comes.

I guess if the center console plaque is of real metal, it would get real hot in direct sunlight. Like the sheet metal on the outside. Maybe a window shade would help?

Tint the windshield. Oh wait, you can’t because apparently sometimes it shorts out the dash on Rams

What do you mean?! Never heard of this. In AZ, even though it is illegal, almost everyone tints all their windows including the windshield. It's too hot not to. A/C will never keep up. haha.

It was in the tint thread. Someone had a tint installer refuse to tint the windshield because it often shorted something behind the dash on Ram pickups.

Huge issue with the 5th gens. If the installer is not careful, excess water will run down the windshield and soak the BCM and all electrical hell will break loose. This is all over the 5th gen ram forms on FB. Would not recommend.

THANKS! 100%! I’ve owned a quite a few cool cars & trucks but this one......Man!

She’s driving & running great, only 300 miles but its such a blast, really is. I kept reading comments from guys here saying how’s she big & pictures dont do her justice, blah, blah, blah,, lol! When I pulled into dealership & right up to my truck I couldn‘t stop laughing, it has such a presence in person that pictures just dont capture.

Took it right from my dealer to my detailer for Xpel Fusion ceramic coating & some limited PPF. Love everything about it, the ride is better than I was imagining, the tech is amazing, it’s probably the most comfortable vehicle I’ve owned. And the sound, love it. Looking forward to getting on it harder. Guys are leaning out of Jeeps etc to take pictures of it on the highway, its just fun man. Caliche my friend, its well worth the wait! Hope yours is coming very soon!

I traded in my ML63 AMG, look how adorable the TRX makes it look:

I have heard people have had success with putting towels all around it before doing it but idk man, still could be a risk. You would still also have to find someone to install it in the first place.

If I was still in socal I would risk it

I seen another video of a guy that had towels on the module that would cause the issue to prevent it from getting wet someone posted the other day.

Any new news KnightMare for you? In repair purgatory? Do you know what for?

All the aggravation about waiting is going to melt away once you get your hands on her! I can’t believe at one time I was thinking of walking away, Fuck me!
