Nice to hear positive feedback.
First time Ram/mopar owner (not counting the '70 Chrysler Windsor I bought when in school), bought it more on good faith than reputation.
Hopefully my experience will mirror yours.

Well congrats.....It's nice to see a great review.....I too also think the RAM truck is well built and the best looking truck on the market, but that's just my opinion.....Hope you get many more great years.....

My 2011 SLT Quad 4x4 Hemi is a year old as well. 13,000 miles and no issues with the exception of two deer running into the passenger side doors. 3 grand and two new doors later, she is like new. I have been a mopar man for years. Two dakotas for 20 years and loved em both, but this RAM is the by far heads and shoulders over the Dakotas! Look forward to driving it each day.

We have had ours since Nov. 2011 and yet we only have 2800 miles on it, we don't drive much! We really like it. I has been on a long road trip and getting ready to take another and we are looking forward to it. It is a very solid feeling truck. We have the QC Outdoorsman package with the 4.7 but still sounds very good. Soon to get windows tinted and exhaust. Already done some debadging on it as well

Got mine in July 2011 and it has been a good running truck. I have been a die hard ford man for years and liked the afordability of the QC. Made the change and no looking back.

Bought mine in Aug 2011, has been very troublefree. Only a few minor quibbles... 1) The fuel sloshing issue with the 32 gal tank. 2) The shiny trim piece around the console shifter (Will probably Plasti-Dip that soon). 3) The overly optimistic EVIC system that is usually 1-2 mpg higher than my real mpg. 4) MDS system is not as seamless as I had hoped; you can definitely tell when the Hemi is in 4 cylinder mode at low speeds. Easily defeated by switching the tranny to '5'.

As I said very MINOR issues, nothing even worth bothering with going to the dealer. I love the power and smooth highway ride of the truck. Pulls a 2000lb popup camper like it is a toy, even logged 18.5 mpg (true mpg, not EVIC mpg) while towing the popup to Palo Duro Canyon.

15k miles on my 2011 and no issues. Several long trips, hauling trailers and I'm very happy with it.
