Contadino: Coincidentally enough that works for me. I wrote this initial post back in Sept 2013 when I first got the RAM. I often say and it's true, I could have never afforded this vehicle when I was punching the clock and running to work. The gas cost would have been overwhelming. I figured that into the purchase knowing I didn't have to be as many places. There are many times the vehicle sits in the lane looking 'tough' for a day going nowhere. Sometimes for even 2 days. If I have to go somewhere I do. But I think a little how to double up trips and save one. On the downside and upside I am doing more dealing locally which means fewer trips to our capital about 12 miles away. Dealing local is the upside, the downside is most of my miles are around town miles. But as you said, I do a lot less driving. I mentioned I've had it since Sept 2013 and I don't yet have 2000 miles on it. The called me in for my first service around 1500 miles and told them there's no need to. But long story short. I agree with you! Jack ":-D
