Lots of GM hating.... even for a RAM forum....
Don't get me wrong, I mostly agree with everything that has been said. I also didn't care for the Ram's up through and including the 3rd gens. They must've grown on me, as I found myself owning an '08 QC. I really liked the '08, though I think my '04 F150 rode better, it just didn't have the power.
When the newly redesigned '09 Rams came out I didn't like them, even a little bit. I thought that they were ugly, un-stylish, and a few other words that are not publishable. They too grew on me, and I started to like the looks of them. After I purchased my '10 CC, I've turned into a lover of the Ram. In my opinion there is not a better looking or better made truck on the road. It also has the best ride quality of any truck I've ever ridden in.
Perceptions change. We tend to evolve after we've looked at a product for awhile. Let's all give the new design a chance to take hold, and if it doesn't perhaps GM designers will figure it out, and actually design an attractive truck for a change.
What I'd like to see is a step side truck again. I've always liked the look of the stepside.
