    Okay, after all the crap I got about my Hellcat badges, you have to admit it is more subtle then the new Ram badges. Just saying. The truck is beast though!

    Personally, I do not care for the 5 foot tall RAM on the front and rear. I am soooo glad Marty bought his RAM this year!

    That's what I thought when I got the message. Thinking tailgate party in a Ram and then I see the giant Ram badge. Yikes! Still bad a$$ truck

    I can't believe they made a 4 minute long video bragging about the grill. That's hands down the ugliest feature of the truck. If that or the stupid tailgate make it onto the HD trucks I'll be shopping Fords next time around.

    I've had 5 Dodge Rams with Cummins engines (91, 94, 2000, 91, 2006 ). This trucks grill is ugly and the giant letters on tailgate look stupid. Hope they "evolv" this to the trash bin. It's hideous

    The grill is HIDEOUS, but thankfully it's only going on the Rebel (from what I've seen). I don't believe it's going on the whole Ram line, nor is the huge RAM on the tailgate.

    Thought you were going to give us tips on grilling for the 4th????

    I like the truck but will have to stick with this truck for a couple more years

    I would love to compare them side by side.

    I had a 2011 F-150 and traded up for a 2013 Ram. Night and day difference. Ram is better in every single way. The Ford was downright boring to drive and had some annoying details. Love my Ram and my only complaint is the lack of a decent door armrest. You either put your arm up on the window ledge or you have to let it hang there (sadly spoiled, aren't we?). I also wouldn't consider a GM truck. The interior still looks like it's from the 90's and the powertrains are still a little weak.

    Ram offers/offered a 3.91 rear gear and an 8-speed tranny. Also gotta love the air suspension and the bed lock boxes.

    Forgot to add: I love how the Raptors look. That's a mean truck, especially the supercharged ones!

    Yes I love my raptor as well :) Raptor does have a couple styling flaws in my opinion but this dodge is just hideous! 2015062495144534.jpg

    Put 1000lb in the back of that ford and watch the rear end sag in agony Now put that same load in the bed of a big horn and tug it down the road with no squat , no drag, no excessive gas consumption. Say its not accurate! Hope all my buddies at Allen park wind tunnel dont read this they already ride me hard about owning a couple Dodge products. Yes I still have an undercover Ford

    Raptors are made that way for a reason. They arent built for towing. Just like big horns were not built for the dunes or trail blazing. U need to compare apples to apples. Come on man! FYI raptor was traded in for the hellcat and next vehicle will be 4x4 ram sport crew cab. And that thing also isn't made for towing which is fine cuz I rarely have more than 100 lbs in the bed. However, if I decided to get a boat or whatever there's plenty of options out there to increase payload. Thx for bringing up this old thread tho. Love that pic of my ol ford. I was brand loyal to ford since I was born. Both my parents work there but no more. I don't like the direction they're going. American company trying to appeal to the European market. Some ppl love it some hate it. Clearly I hate it. Mopar or no car!
