I ended up buying a new Jeep Wrangler 4 door after the 1 ton. I paid $4k for the 1 ton and sold it for $6k so it worked out quite well.

I dove the Jeep for a couple of years but it was just too small and I wanted a truck again. So, I went with the truck in my sig for a great deal. It has all the offroad goodies that RAM offers minus the air ride. I slapped a set of 33x12 AT's and it has been good to me. After a 2" leveling kit, I feel like it will do what I want. I took my winch off of the Jeep and will be getting a front receiver hitch and a tray for it.

I have owned 4 Rams Hemi 1500 4x4. Excellent Trucks no issues always got good trades for them. I always had the 3.92 Limited slip Diffs. Quad cabs. Pulled 6200 and 7700 lb campers no issues at all and easy pulls with a 3.92 Gear. MPG first 2 not so good MPG maybe about 14 all around average no loads. The last two about 17 to 20 MPG Average not pulling any loads.
None of them was ever in shop from new until trade off.....two had well over 100k on them.

Good luck to you Rams are excellent trucks.

IMO get yourself a low mileage ram 1500 4x4 with the quad cab....
