Which is better to own new or old Rams
 
Heres is a little debate, to be battled out.

Are you better off with a NEW or OLD dodge ram.

Now before you go all jumping in have a good think, as new rams yes they safer and more things on them etc, but the older rams have less to go wrong and built like a tank.
New rams cost more naturally and have more features.
Old rams cheap and good also a strong work horse but can be made a project


Both models also have there bad points too new ones will be packed with driver aids so really its not a drivers truck anymore, Older ones need more tlc and good driving skills you can say (no offense there)

So what do yo say is it better to have a Old Ram like a 1996/1998 or is it better to have a new ram like a 2008/2010

Can I take a Hemi and stick it in a 2001 body? I like the interior better in the BR/BE body style.

Well I'm partial towards the new 2009/2010 because I own one and I like it a lot. But I gotta agree with bones that some of the older models are sweet when modded out like his, RaiderJ's, and Cdnoilram's to name a few.

well ive had pickups fer nearly 20 years, always getting newer ones
first pickup 1975 ford f100 for 2 years then had
for 6 years 1985 gmc 4x4
for 1 year 1991 chevy 4x4
for 6 years 1995 dodge ram 4x4
for nearly 4 years now 2004 dodge ram 4x4
personally found that the newer pickups ride better perform better drive better stop better
so my next pickup will be a newer pickup than mi 2004 ram :smiley_thumbs_up:
ive got mates with 50s pickups ,
like this custom ,lowerd ,show winning 59 chevy apache

i think it all depends on what you want and how you use it

1. new
the warranty enough said!!!
limited to what you can do to it.
harder to work on
ride better
more comfort features

2. used
you can lift it,lower it, tub it, slam it,chop it,do what ever you want you have to pay for it if it breaks.
usally older body styles look better , and work better
easier to work on!!!
ride rougher but some how feel more like a truck not a caddy with a bed!

Do I get to have a Cummins 5.9L common rail and put it into a 2008 mega cab 4x4? Please? I love the older cummins engines = 100% modifiable by ANYONE! But I like the newer body styling and some of the creature comforts like power everything.
