I'll probably get kicked off the forums for saying that lol
I like how people say that until they are actually faced with the decision.

"I won't drive such and such a brand, I'd rather walk.". Yeah, OK.

I saw a review on the new Ram on tv a couple weeks ago. It rated well and they were very impressed with it. I like it's practicality and functionality, but I have never liked Dodge trucks, let alone have no need for such a gross monstrosity of a vehicle.

The new Rams have a great rear suspension though

And IMO the 09 F150s are hideous

Why is everybody going to the ugly toyota look? Ford started it with the raised bed and window lines on the F150, then toyota took the ugly even further, now everyone is trying to be ugly. It's as though they are trying to discourage people from buying a new truck.

ONLY on 1500 models......it's old technology anyway, my '71 chevy came stock with coils in the rear. It's basically my chevy using a 4 link rather than trailing arms and panhard bar.

IF you really wanted to play that card, which i do agree with, you'd be saying the '94 dodge took truck looks to a whole new level....then all the others copied it: '99 with the super duty. '99 silverados...'01 HD silverados.
Then dodge drastically changed in '02 as well...taking trucks to a whole nother direction in styling and aero technology(laid back windshield).

Word around the watering hole is Cummins will be replaced by Benz diesels.
