I just traded my 2012 Ram 1500 Express for a 2012 Ram 2500!! What a difference!!! I need to find the trailer tow mirrors though. I want the flip up ones. Do you know where to get them?

Very nice upgrade. I would check the Mopar store maybe for the mirrors.
I upgraded from a 2010 1500 Big Horn to a 2012 2500 Power Wagon this past Jan. It was between that or the Cummins. How do you like it so far?

I love it!! Love the torque!!! I already put over 150 miles on it since around 11:30AM today!!

Been playing with it just a little. I will have my break in miles down by the end of the week for sure as I drive over 300 miles just to work in a week.

It takes like a 100k for a diesel to break in, you are going to have a lot of seat time! J/K.. Nice color choice btw, you'll love it. Even when it is dirty it looks just as good. My last car was black, with no garage that was a never ending, loosing battle.

Not that bad. I had 14500 miles on it in just about 5 months. That hurt me a little. I got 28K on trade in. Plus they sold me the truck for invoice and the rebates. I owed less than trade so that was good. My friend up in Asheville sold me the old truck at a stellar deal in April. I also get my money back from the extended warranty. I plan on getting bed Line-X'ed and put my trailer tow mirrors on it.

28k for an express?? Sounds kind of shady. They are cheap to start

It was 4x4, running boards, and trailer brake controller. I only had it for 4 months. It was spotless short of the higher mileage on it. The appraiser looked at it mutiple times and went over it with a fine tooth comb. He looked at it for about an hour. He came back with the 28K which I took. I looked it up on the nada and it was around 29k.

I am happy with the deal. Payments right where I figured. Never told them what I wanted to pay per month.
