Default Compliments

I have only had my new Ram 4 days but have received more compliments on it than any vehicle I have owned. It is the Maximum Steel color. More than one person told me they thought it was black at first then viewed it in bright sunlight and thought it was blue. There are people standing around peeking in the windows almost every time I look out. Complete strangers have stopped into my office to ask me about the truck. Several have said it is the best looking truck they have ever seen. If they had a chance to actually drive the truck with the 8speed Hemi and air ride they would really be impressed. Ram has a winner for sure!

Yep, Im turing heads everyday.
Lol, funny thing is that I have to pass a smalltown general store where I live at in order to bring my kids to school. Well all the "old time" locals like to hang out in front of the store, BS'ing..drinking coffee etc...
Everytime I pass by I notice them looking and pointing at the truck ...Everytime!..lol never gets old.

I saw one on a dealership a few weeks back. My wife and I both assumed it was black - until we got closer. It is a great color. I've been leaning towards the cherry red or brown, but I'm still thinking about that color.

Now that you say that it looked black, my guess is that the local dealer has one but I didn't notice. Lord knows that I have spent enough time there in the past fews months checking on the build status of my white Sport!

Don't go by the brochure or build your own Ram site. The color is nothing like that. This is one color you have to see in person. It chanes color so much depending on the light.
I am not sure how to post pictures. I haven't even taken any. Guess I am not that into taking pictures.

I'm actually not sure taking a picture would do it justice. I think a pic might just look black. Like you said - it depends on the light. We thought it was black until we walked up to it. As light changed angles that's when we noticed it wasn't actually black.

I have had tons of compliments (and jealous people which I take as a compliment). I don't drive a whole lot, I do not have a job to drive to or anything atm so I only drive around to hang out. Last night I had two girls (sisters) I know go crazy about my truck right in front of there boyfriends. They both hopped in and were like wow this is awesome! And their boyfriends acted like they were not impressed and did not even get up close . Didn't get to give them a ride until today, I was driving with both of those girls and decided to show them what the hemi 8 speed can do! Spun the tires to 30mph then got to around 95mph before letting off. I believe one of them said "That was amazing! I have an adrenaline rush right now!". Also I get a lot of people noticing me, mostly because I think I have the only Sport in my town of about 30,000 people. I am very very happy with my truck.

I have a tradesman which no one believes is an base Truck! I got it with most options for that level.
I get compliments all the time, and Love it.
