Okay so I still haven't picked my truck up yet, I was going to on leave but there was an issue with being able to paint it or somthing, but I was able to look at and drive a comprable truck. As I was looking at it I noticed that the frame was merely painted black, unlike chevy trucks which have the tacky grease all over the frame. Are there any issues with rust with ram trucks, I heard the horror stories about the chrome bumpers and thankfully I ordered a painted greyish one so I think I will be okay there unless some one else has a diffrent experiance. Also the underside of the bed and cab looked as if it is susceptible to rust. Due to the truck being black and I belive that the issue with having it painted was that the paint was inferior are there issues with rust on the outside now? It may seem as thought that rust is my only concern but I have had some bad experiances with rust in the past so I don't want my first new truck to have issues with it right off the bat.
