    Nice looking truck. I've been watching the new Ram 1500 diesel too, just haven't decided I "need" one yet. Good Luck with it and let us know how it is runs.

    Mike - What's up? Are you ANTI-SOCIAL? Just a 2-door pickup! Three person cab? You don't want to haul your wife, three kids, two dogs, the family goat, and the oldest boy's 4-H club calf everywhere you go? INSIDE the truck cab!

    If so, You sound like ME! Even when I drove over-the-road 2500-3000+ miles a week I drove a short nose conventional cab tractor with no sleeper bunk! Less space to accumulate junk and have to clean!

    SON got a new '14 Ram 2500 4wd CTD back on 12-29-14. Has about 7200 miles on it now. It's been TOTALLY trouble free. It impresses him, AND ME, more all the time. 4-door truck, short box, but has the gooseneck/5th wheel prep package installed. He's looking for a toy hauler.

    I kinda suggested he buy a Ram. I've had my '96 PowerStroke since new, over 19 years & 300,000 miles, had 2 F-150's before that for 16 years and 200,000 miles. Son had two F-150's over 15 years and 175,000+ miles. The RAM is the only new diesel pickup to buy today. Best pricing, best mpg, best towing performance, best reliability.

    Unless you're too tall for the cab and hit you head when trying to sit in it... Can't even think about a new RAM due to them lowering the roofs in order to increase MPG.
