Default New R/T Owner

Hello everyone, Another new R/T owner here and lovin' it so far. I Plan to pretty much leave it stock since it is my daily driver, probably just throw on some tint and (partially) debadge it. it is a Used 2011 model.

I love the truck, feels a little sluggish at times but then again my other vehicle is a 500whp C6 Corvette so its really an unfair statement when i think something feels a little sluggish.

Congrats on the new truck. I just bought my new 2012 R/T saturday. So far Im loving my truck too. I really like the interior and overall look of the truck. I just sold my 720whp Procharged GTO to get this truck so I know what you mean by feeling alittle slow now... lol Im probley going to do a few boltons to mine. I really want to get the ARH headers but there seems to be no tuning out yet for the 11-12 R/T trucks

Yes, congrats on your purchase and welcome to the Z boards.

Every time I see a new RT on these boards, I wish I hadn't jumped into my purchase.

Love the RT's

Thanks guys..

I had been looking for a regular cab short bed truck with the hemi, honestly I didnt even know the R/T was available until i started doing some research, I am a dodge newbie!

I used to work for a dodge dealer back around 1999, used to want a dakota R/T back then but never could afford one

Hey psycho:
Nice truck. Black may be a bit warm in the Austin summer. From the looks of your garage, you are used to it.

We trudge on.

Default AHHHHHH...Black!!!

Black...keeps ya busy!!! Great looking truck. I just become the owner of a black, 2012 crew cab Sport - a retirement present from my dear wifey....her retirement!!! I've been retired for over 7 years, and now this month she will be too. I had a 2009 Challenger 5.7 - black, of course, and got tired of not driving in the winter (Ohio). I bought an older F--- truck, that I just sincerely hated. So, the F--- and the Challenger were sold and I got a N0n-descript 2011 Ram basic 4.7. Well, in the 16 months I had it, I tried to make it fun to drive, but that didin't work out. Wifey to the rescue!!!!! She took me to the dealer, I found THE truck, and now it's in my garage!! She says this is my last one, so I better enjoy it!!!! NOw, since I'm retired, I have to make up excuses for places to go to drive it!!

Welcome to the site. The truck is a real looker and the black ones really look good with what ever you do to the exterior. This is a great place to see what it can look like with what ever level of mods you decide to do....... someone on here has done it and took pics.

Now that is a beauty and of course I love the color choice. Well mine is also a DD and I have done tons of stuff to it for the better. I'm pretty sure the mod bug will find it's way to you as well. Enjoy the new toy.
