new dd, ranger=trailer queen

All the trail near home are closing one after the other so after a week of thinking i decided to buy a tow rig to get to the nearest trail 3h away and mainly to get back. Has im a mecanic at a dodge dealership to choice wasnt too hard

Its my first brand new vehicule, pass the entire weekend just driving. Now i just need to repair the ranger and buy a trailer to have some fun.

AWESOME! I'm trying to convince my dad to get a new Ram, he's got a used GMC right now, but he had a new Ram for 08-10. I love the looks of the new sport.

The cabs of the fully loaded Rams I have to admit are very nice. Chrysler has always had very comfortable seats. Ive just never had much luck with the reliability with them. and when I worked at a Chrysler dealer it kinda turned me off to them, but time will tell how the Fiat replacement parts hold up to the Mercedes parts...

Nice truck though

The mecanical quality isnt bad, to date we dont have any recuring trouble on that plateform. The interior is really amazing, anyway all the 2011 chrysler model have amazing interior.

p.s. lol imagine im used to drive a ranger on 39inch tire so yes there low and the funny part is for a dd i kind of like that. No more trouble having people climb on the passenger side

yes, prefer the ride of the ifs and rear coil 1500 over the solid axles 2500. Has the truck will only tow between once to twice a month i went with the better road ride

The only 2 reasons I like the ram is because of the mimicking style off of the 05-07 f250's and the fact that the cummins is offered.

That ram is sexy. I'd drive it if I could afford one.
