I traveled 3 hours on dirt/rock back mountain roads instead of the highway to get out of Big Bear and I've definitely had the front tires off the ground and I think the rears might have got a bit of air. That makes me Not a street queen!

Oh ya< I got totally stuck in Glamis with my stock tires! SO SO not a Street Queen!

I gotta put my 2 cents in here since I have been reading the posts since the OP. It starts out as a simple observation, "sweet Ram Runner" and turns into you being an A hole and actually working to offend every single person you can with your name calling and better than thou attitude. Really man? What is your problem? Why do you have to take your opinion, albeit way more educated than anyone else on this forum (if you don't believe that then just ask yourself), and try to one up everyone with your superior attitude? Why can't you just simply give your honest opinion in a civilized and mature manner, rather than that of a 12 year old kid trying to get all his buddies to believe he is the toughest kid on the block by punching out a 7 yo girl. I bet money I am not alone on this, I am just the only one willing to risk getting bounced for saying it. So be it.

They also have many products to compliment their suspension products which include body panels, bumpers and even auxiliary LED lighting. There is too much non-race oriented product being offered on their web site for me to believe they are doing this only to be nice to the truck owning street queen populaces.

KORE makes their money selling suspension enhancement systems to the masses so they can afford to play in the desert. They use their winning as marketing to sell their product. Being consulted by Dodge and having an active role in the design of the Ram Runner has likely not hurt their bottom line either. Here is a link to a great article in a 2010 Mopar Magazine that discusses the birth of the Ram Runner and KORE's involvement.

The growth of their company fueled by their reputation in the industry and affiliation with the Ram Runner has undoubtedly put them in a position where they are very busy. If you are busy and finding it a challenge keeping up with the orders, then you don't need to offer special deals to enhance your sales.

The only reason anyone is offended is because they let themselves be. Not my problem, I didn't know sugar coating the truth was a requirement here.

I've ridden in one. The two door Red one they had at SEMA. Imagine riding in a truck that rode just a little bit smoother when going fast in the dirt. That is the Ramrunner. It is a glorified stock pickup. Nothing more.

It does not take a genius to see your intentional insults (even you should be able to see it), whether it be someones intelligence or their preference of how they like their rig. (Street queens, Hillbilly 4x4s) Whatever ...Hey I may be wrong ..Is that you Carlos? Carlos Iribe?
