i had to change my opinion too! had ford trucks, the chevy truck treated me well! but love the RAM. i think most guys on the forum used to drive other brands before their RAM.

i think this guy was just a bit jealouse! what you can't have, you hate

Ya, I deserve all the crow I'm choking on too. But I'm THAT content with my truck that I can easily blow it off "

I know what you guys mean. I have in-laws that would rather push a Chevrolet than drive a Ford or Dodge. Me, I'm not hugely brand loyal but I know my personal experience. I've had much better luck with Ford and Jeep vehicles. Every GM product I've owned had constant repairs.

Yup, I totally agree about the cloth its rough compared to before. I have an LTZ work truck (not bad for a fleet truck) and even the leather seats aren't as nice anymore. The old seats with the flip down arm rest and sweet, sweet lumbar support were the nicest seats I had ever sat in in a vehicle. If I had to take a guess I'd say there shifting to more of a work/fleet truck market. The last thing I want to do after driving a work truck all week is hop into a truck that feels like a work truck.

I get crow from a lot of the guys at work that are hardcore chev guys or ford guys. Most of it is in fun of course. It's like cheering for a sports team. Some guys are loyal through thick and thin. Thats fine as long as the loyalty isn't costing me money.

In a voluntary filing with the SEC, Chrysler mentions upcoming plans for the 2013 model year. Couple of links below with details. Found these links along with a few others on Google. All dated March 08, 2012.

Well said! lol

I noticed the bottom cushion in back seat of the crewcab Chevy doesn't lift up anymore like in my 04'. That supports your theory about them going toward fleetishness
