tguil is on a distinguished road

I have had three Rams....2003, 2007 and now a 2013. My wife has had four Tacomas ...1992, 2002, 2005 and 2011. Guess I am qualified to share my opinion. The Tacoma is a better truck as far and fit and finish. I have had paint problems on all of my Rams, especially my 2013. None of the Tacomas had any paint issues...none! The Tacoma has a better interior. My 2013 Ram with a Hemi and 3.92 rearend gets almost as good mileage as my wife's 2011 Tacoma Sport with a V-6. I get about 17 mpg under regular driving conditions with my Hemi. My Ram is a Quad Cab and it has considerably more interior room than the Tacoma Crew Cab. It also has a much bigger box. My Ram has a much more comfortable ride than the Tacoma. Over the years, my wife's Tacomas have been in the shop less than my Rams. All of our trucks have been driven over 100,000 miles before trading. We live in the country but drive frequently in a city of over 200,000. The Tacoma is a heck of a lot better in tight places. Again my major complaint about my Ram centers around fit and finish. Chrysler needs to get with it. If they don't, I'll be buying a Tacoma next time around. Both are very handsome trucks and I think that I look darn good in either and I am not a teenager....far from it at age 70. :-)
