Default Picked up my 13 Longhorn - I am very happy but noticed some things

Well I finally picked up my truck yesterday and I have to say WOW WOW WOW...... The truck is awesome however I did find a few things that the dealer will be looking after. Let me start by saying that I am NOT complaining however I noticed that both the front and rear bumpers have to be realigned due to sticking out on opposite sides and being crooked. I also noticed that the RAM boxes also need to be adjusted.

I also located two small white specks of paint under the clear coat on the hood so they are not going anywhere. I don't want the hood repainted. All I can is that this is one beautiful truck. The truck is prairie pearl and gold.

My dad works on the line at Ford and he also agrees. The RAM is the way to go.....

Just curious is anyone else has experienced the same issues. I will post some pics once I get them downloaded.

Happy Easter everyone, stay safe....

One happy and excited owner.....LOL

Are you sure its your bumpers? The reason I ask, your bumpers are fixed to the frame. That's how much I know the box on my truck is misaligned, I went to the back of my truck and at the bottom of my tailgate, there is a spot where the bumper starts to wrap around forward, on one side I have a finger width of room, on the other side I have a finger and a half of room. I can also see the difference right behind the cab, on the right side it is pretty much flush with the cab, on the left side it is about a half inch in from the side of the cab. They can adjust this though. Good luck on yours.

I have been told that it is an adjustment however I will let you know when its done....I was a little frustrated but overall this is a sweet looking machine....I also added a mod. I put in the dvd headrests that I had to have special ordered due to the longhorn leather......

Do you know if they can adjust the ram boxes???

Multiple speeding tickets over a short time frame will make it easier to resist that urge. At least it did for me.

No doubt......I don't plan on beating on it. My last 2011 Longhorn was traded in with only 9700 kms.....
