02325 is on a distinguished road

first truck was a 94 GMC Sonoma 4.3 auto RCSB 4x4. Got it in JAN of 1996 (for my 16th bday) and I still have it. ITS going under the knife (yet again) for a HPD30 frt axle and a 8.8 rear axle. First surgery was in 00 when it got the Trailmaster 5" lift kit. I drove this truck every day til about 18 mths ago. It is now in my back yard getting some updates. it only has 180k miles on it

than I bought (2006ish) a 01 s10 ECSB 2.2 auto for a beater. loved this truck. YES it was gutless but it got 16 mpg everyday and being sport side ZQ8 suspension it was fun to drive. SOLD it to my EX's cousin with 275k miles on the clock. I bought it with 145k with a blown trans.

than got a 99 s10 blazer "needing a motor" for cheap. after $50 in intake gaskets I had it running drove it for 2 years and sold it for my down payment on the NEW to ME RAM.

My dad has always had fullsize CHEVY trucks and still ahs a 02 2500hd 6.0 auto ECSB truck. SO I have always been a CHEVY guy.

I wanted something different. I loved the RAM looks and the ride. My friend has a 07 RAM 5.9l 3500 manual used for her horse farm. I have driven it many times and it rides sooooo much better than my dads Silverado. Having no issues in 150k miles, I knew I wanted a Chrysler product. Co-worker has a 08 RAM hemi I was trying to buy. HE wouldnt sale it to me. I drove it and loved it. These 2 trucks got me hooked on the RAM trucks. So the search was on for a RAM truck.

THIS is my first full size truck. I have always driven s10 stuff. Gotta say the RAM gets less mpg than my 99 blazer did, but it is SOOOOOOOOOOOO much fun to drive.

sorry for the long post.
