Smile Hi from Northern British Columbia

Hi. I am new to this forum. I am seriously considering purchasing my first Ram truck. Actually my first Chrysler product since owing a 1975 Chrysler New Yorker 4 door hardtop back in the late '70's.

Regarding pickups, I usually have had GM pickups and converted them to run on propane. I am currently driving a propane powered 2007 GM Denali pickup with 6.2L engine Unfortunately, the shop that did my conversions is no longer operating.

A year ago we sold our 2007 Cadillac Escalade and purchased a 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL350 blue-tec. I have been so impressed with the 3.0 L diesel in the MB that I decided to go the same route in a pickup. I don't need a 3/4 ton with big engine so the 2014 Ram with 3.0L diesel should do the trick. I do wish it was 445 lb.ft of torque like the MB, but the extra gear should help. The MB has a 7 speed.

I discovered this forum and it has already answered some of the questions regarding Ram pickups that I have been wondering. When they are available to order, I am seriously considering the Limited. Hopefully we will be able to order them soon.
