Default Newbie from Warren, MI

I'm a former career IT Guy on the management side that is now semi-retired. I'm now working for a couple of event marketing companies that specialize in automotive events for many of the major auto makers as an on-call truck driver, event setup/tear down, hospitality, etc.

Over the course of my latest 'career' I've had a chance to drive a number of Dodge/Ram 2500/3500 series trucks as well as the comparable full-size GM models and I really like the new RAM's. I like them so much that I'm seriously considering ordering a new 2014 or '15 regular cab 1500 Hemi Express.

This purchase will be my retirement vehicle present to myself. I have been seriously considering a Camaro SS and Mustang GT but now I'm leaning towards a truck. My current ride is a 2007 GMC Canyon that has been modded and I ran it at Bonneville in 2011.

I'm thinking that with a budget Hemi Express, or possibly Tradesman, that I can build a nicely handling and performing truck by lowering it and boosting the power while saving thousands compared to the cost of a Camaro or Mustang. Plus you just can't beat the sound of the RAM Hemi exhaust right from the factory.

Bob

IT guy from MI here! My first new truck also is my RAM. I don't think you'll be disappointed. I thought about the fast car thing but I have a lead foot and already insurance is enough on my ram being one of the less expensive vehicles to insure! You wouldn't be disappointed tho... this thing HAULS
