What Do You NOT Like About Your Rebel

These are definitely lovable trucks. They're gorgeous, functional, a nice overall package. But everyone has different preferences and different things they like and don't. There's always something you don't like lol.

So, what is it that you DO NOT like about your Ram Rebel ?

I don't like it that every time I plug my phone in, it automatically starts playing the first song on my play list.

Speed to get to entry/exit height
Fact that I can't drive in either highest setting or lowest setting at any speed I want without mods.

I can't think of anything I really don't like. It's everything I wanted in a truck.

The truck is set up very good , accept for the spare tire , I checked it when drove home from the dealer . The spare is a Good Year and the wrong size : too small : 265-70-17 , proper size : 285-70-17 . This would result in damage to the differentials after prolonged use . The spare is approx. 1" lower , total height . I replaced the spare with a correct size & brand . it also fits in place properly in the holder . I contacted the dealer about the issue & they told me I have to eat the bill of replacing the spare tire . Funny thing ,,,, on the window sticker , it shows : full size spare tire . So you folks with your Rebel model ram , check your spare tire ! Spread The Word ! I believe FCA should eat the bill for this issue , what do you folks think ?

It might not be the exact size but it is considered a full size spare. Working in the tire industry, I see this all the time. And as for the different size, you are correct as it is just barely within range for causing drive train issues. It should fall no more than 1" rolling diameter and it's definitely over 1".

On the flip side though, it is designed to be a SPARE to get you to the shop and not for prolonged use. I never understood myself as to why they don't supply a matching size tire. Be glad that you have a "full size" spare though. My ram express I had had a donut style spare (super skinny tire).

At least our trucks have a spare though. Kind of crazy that quite a bit newer vehicles don't even have a spare tire and some don't even come with run flat/zero pressure tires which leaves a tow truck the only option.

That's actually very interesting to hear. Are you more of a non-picky type of person or does it really just tick all of your boxes off that you wanted ?

Well what don't you like? Personally if I wanted something else or something more I would have bought something different. However, I wouldn't complain about new features or electronics I just happen to be overly satisfied with the truck.

If you really must have something. Android Auto would be nice.

I don't like the back seat area, they need to make the floor flat and give more room under the seats when they're down to store stuff.I have a plastic filing cabinet thing floating around back there where my F150 I could tuck it under it. There's no home screen for the center touch screen, my F150 had a home button where I would show part of the navigation, climate control, phone and radio so going between the different screens now isn't as smooth. The back up camera isn't centered so it throws me off looking at.

I was a little disappointing I couldn't get a drill case in the ram box.

2017 Ram rebel 5.7 Hemi. Fully loaded, tinted windows, SRQ back up lights, RB10 running boards, ASV window vents, Bedrug bed mat, more to come

Past 97 F250 LD 5.4L, 2003 F150 5.4L lifted and modded pretty good, 2013 F150 3.5EB predator- modded pretty good.
