But to say that Mopar doesnt make something that competes with it is a slap in the face to the worlds most off road capable stocker http://news.pickuptrucks.com/2009/10...wer-wagon.html

wanna get serious with wheelin get a Jeep! My 2011 costs way to much to crawl rocks or get into the mud. If that's what I'm gonna do then my Wrangler is where I turn! ARb's front & rear, 4:88 gears, 35" Pitbulls. I saw that mud you were in, it would be tough for my Ram. But that would be a walk in the park for the Jeep... What I'm sayin is build your truck to do what you want. Myself my Ram will stay mostly onroad, I'll beat the crap out of my $15000 Jeep, not the $47000 Ram.

Exactly! To each his own, but I couldn't agree more. I have a Jeep that will walk circles around my Ram, and it costs a lot less to fix when you break it. Obviously most people may not have a "spare" but it just scares the heck out of me to beat on a $40k+ Ram just for fun.

Well I agree not beating on $40k Ram but my Ram wasn't $40k it was less then $15k so I really don't have that much of a problem doing anything with it I am prob going to keep it. If I were to spend $40k or more I would buy a Power Wagon.
