It is only showing 1/4 of "safe".
So I have the right dipstick>?

You do! It is the exact same length as my stock one. If you want to run with less oil, you will need a longer dipstick.

I don't. I want to run with what MOPAR recommends.
So if I have the right dipstick and it says 1/4 on the "safe" line with 10 US QT's I am good?
Thank you.

GSJake-

One final comment:

If you ever have your engine out and your pan off and you fill that pan with 10 qts of oil, you will see exactly why you don't want to run with 10 qts of oil.

It is your truck and I'm just some guy on a forum, I get it.

Best of luck.

Listen to Ronnie. I'm at 90,000 and 30 oil changes. 8 1/2 quarts every time and reads right in the middle on the dipstick.

Car dipsticks are totally different.
I’ve also had two kinds of dipsticks in trucks - flat bar, and braided steel with a lead bullet on the end.
I usually end up about 9qt or so...

Got the ps fluid leak fixed. The drip started to pour around the gasket for the pulley so got a new pump installed with the JTSVP ps lines.
Was not a cheap fix but just glad it made it to WI from CA on my trip.

Question: Did the QC's not come with 5th torque Bilstein shock off the diff?

So now just going to put some miles on it and enjoy!~
Shits kinda sluggish and the 3rd to OD shift is WAY too early as mentioned before. I will need the tranny bands adjusted at 60K with a flush so that will be next with a tune!


Thanks for all the advice guys!
