oh my! That is a beautiful creation. :SHOCKED:

ummm, if it isn't in the driveway in the morning.......it wasn't me!!!!! Kidding, great new ride.

Please give feedback as to the ride quality. I know the 2500's are 'stiffer' for a reason but I have been itching to buy.

take care

Thanks! Ride is a bit stiffer than the 1500, obviously, but not bad at all. With the light load button engaged and 60 psi in front and 45 psi in rear, the ride is not bad. I'm actually very impressed. With the 2013 CTD 2500, the 3.42 rear axle is required I believe, and so far, the mileage is not bad either. I've got about 500 miles on it, and averaging about 17-combination of city and interstate driving (empty). I'm sure it'll improve.

Still trying to figure out how to post pictures!

Here is a bigger picture. I ordered a 1500 Laramie Longhorn with all the bells and whistles on February 12 and had not received it by May 16. I found this truck on the same dealer lot and decided to pull the trigger. I figured it would tow the camper better, although the camper is only a anticipated purchase as of now. I'm having a little buyer's remorse for not waiting on the 1500, but as a previous diesel owner, it's hard to go with gas. The exhaust brake is amazing, the ride is good, and I'm very happy with the RA4 radio as of now. So far, no problems. The paint is impeccable, the interior is sheer luxory, and the diesel is very powerful.

I tried out the auto high beams last night on the interstate, and they work great...not too conservative on dimming...just about right in my opinion.

I wanted to say this is a great forum. I've been following posts for months now, and what a great bunch of folks here.

Nice truck I would have liked to get a 2500 but it was more than I wanted to spend. My trailer isn't heavy but my 13 with 3.55's get bad mileage even on the highway.

Beautiful truck Horseman. I think you waited more than long enough for the 1500 you ordered! Did you ever find out for certain why it still hasn't been delivered?

Very nice man. I like that color a lot. Won't see many like it on the road

ShaneDiddy 05-20-2013 12:38 AM
