Yes I plan to get a 2013 Ram 1500 Sport 4x4 Crew Cab with 3.92 LSD....will have to sell my 2007 Ram 1500 Quad Cab Sport 4x4 first...

Still very much on the fence about the 8 speed...don't like the knob but I DO like the lower first gear! I am a bit concerned with the "new" transmission having some issues and may go with the current A6 but I feel these days the new vehicle "bugs" are less prevalent. Much of the "new" technology we are talking about in the Ram have been in the 300 or Grand Cherokees for a year or two...

Getting the itch to let go of my 98, regular cab SLT with 8' bed with 59K original miles on it. It is still super clean and I don't really need a new truck but why should that stop me? Just waiting to hear a few more comments from new owners with a few thousand miles on a 2113, V6, 8 speed. I may have to give up the 8' bed regular cab for a Quad cab unless I special order one. Not many 8' beds in the dealers here in Maryland that are not work ST's or Tradesman's. I'm thinking about Spring or early Summer unless the bug bites sooner.

Never Again! Way too many issues and quirks with my 12. Chryslers give a d@mn is busted when it comes to taking care of customers. My paint and engine noises have taught me a major lesson. It's too bad cause these trucks are the most powerful and best looking on the road. JMO

Default not a good buy

I purchased a 2013 Ram 1500 Laramie. I am not pleased. My 2010 Ram 1500 was much better. This 2013 doesn't know what gear to be in nor does it know how many cyclinders to use, plus the lights are so poor, i might as well use candles. The U Connect is completely useless. The truck has trouble tracking down a paved road. The engine feels flat and tired all the time. I could go on listing the disadvantages. surfice it to say that I wish I had kept my 2010. It had flaws but not this bad.

i ordered my 1st Ram truck ever. i ran out of time on GM trying to update thiers. I waited till about 3 weeks ago so i could get the Hemi with the 8 speed Tranny. I was issued a VIN but no confirmation yet on MPG difference.

Im excited and these next 5-6weeks are going to be tough waiting for my new ride.

Just because you got a lemon doesn't mean everybody gets a lemon. Go read about guys with bent frames on their Raptors and see how happy those guys are with Ford.
