titanman2789 is on a distinguished road

This thread was the one that showed up on the main page by the 2011 section. I have a 2012 though, and I love my truck. So far it has treated me well. Got it 3 months ago and have 4,000 miles on it with 1,000 of those miles towing. Of course, 4,000 miles is nothing on vehicles these days and you should expect not to have any mechanical issues on a new vehicle in that many miles. Everything is great on it BUT I get some crazy rear diff whine (at least that's what the dealer told me it was) and my TPMS light comes on about once a month and then goes off, but the tires are not low.
Some of y'all say you had terrible experiences with past Rams and have bought another one. I don't know if I could do that. My stepdad has over 100k miles on his 05 F150 with no problems and I drove my 2000 Camry to 217000 miles with no problems, just had to replace an EGR valve at 200k, other than that just maintenance. I expect the same out of my Ram. I've read a lot of people say about Rams they have had for a few years and with 100k miles or so on them - "oh it's been great, no major problems besides replacing the trans at 70k miles" or whatever. If I have to replace the transmission before...say...200k miles, I will probably be going with Ford for another truck. Definitely if it goes out before 100k.

But I won't go with Chevy. Ever.
