I'm assuming 4th gen 2500? If so then yes, I fully agree that the 4th gen heavy duty trucks looks absolutely mean lifted. I can't wait to get mine there.
I'll pretend that you didn't mention anything about Ford....
Sweet man, that time will go buy pretty quick. Plus it will give you some good time to really plan out what you want. And by then there might be 5th gen Rams out there that you can get in to!
I know what you mean about the darker colour too. Although my 3500 is still Mineral Grey which is somewhat dark it's 100 times better to have than black. Very happy with that colour choice so far!
