Talking RAM appearance to casual observer

To preface this I have to say that my wife has no interest in vehicles at all except that it gets her from point A to point B safely and it's a pretty color...to me, frustrating at best as I have a completely different view of the auto / truck world. She thinks that it's just a car / truck big deal.

As is my norm when going to the mall in this the silly season of the year, I dropped her off at the mall entrance and proceeded to go park in the back 40, all by myself, and walk to the entrance to meet her. Usually picking her up is the reverse of dropping her off with no radical proclamations or other comment from her except maybe "What took you so long".

Yesterday when I picked her up she remarks "Your truck looks mean". Taken back a bit by this observation I asked her what she had meant by mean. To my wife, looking mean is defined as the way Mr. Potter looked at George Bailey, "The Look" significant others give to their mates or the expression on the old man on the corners face when your St. Bernard deposits on his manicured lawn and you have no proper waste extraction bag. She goes on to explain that the truck when approaching her has a very "Don't mess with me" attitude and that she likes it. After a moment of silent disbelief I had to conclude that something miraculous and special had just occurred in that one brief statement. She gets it... If the same reaction is stirred within other's minds upon seeing the RAM, I can live with that.

LOL, that's a cool story and one of the things I have to say I like about the look of the 4th gens, they do have a very forward, aggressive looking stance and even though I love my 3rd gen, the current styling really does the RAM justice, IMO!

Pretty much the same thing here, one time behind the wheel and my wife fell in love with my truck. She even likes the exhaust on it which really surprised me.

Hmmmm...from the sound of some of these posts, it sounds like these women are getting out of control.

But seriously, my wife has the same reaction to our '12 Express. And she says driving it makes me aggressive.

We had to move this weekend, and I reluctantly let my girlfriend drive the truck. This was the first time I had ever seen it driven, and I must say, it's one badass lookin' truck (not tootin' my own horn)! It puts it in a different perspective when you see your truck from an "observer's" viewpoint. It made me like it that much more!

Couldn't agree more. I watched my truck being pulled around at the dealer today and was like "wow that is a bad ass looking truck." I am a Ford guy but I gotta say, ever since I first saw the 09 Ram I consider it to be one of the best looking trucks on the market.
