There is another guy in my office with a 2011 Ram. He always gave me a hard time about his interior compared to my 2006 that I traded in. He cannot stop looking at the 2013 though. He made a good point though, the generation gap from early 3rd gen trucks clear through the 2012 was not that much, but 2012 to 2013 is huge!

I'm a machinist and suspect I know the inspiration for the Maximum Steel color. When hard steel or stainless is cut, the resulting chip from the tool is often a blue-black color from the heat that is generated. It's very close to the paint color.

Default Paint Choices

I too had a tough time choosing a color. Max Steel, Brilliant Black, Black Gold Pearl, and Mineral Gray were my short list. I picked Brilliant Black just because I've always wanted a black truck. However it was tough to do. The Black Gold Pearl almost won with me. I loved how the color changed from gold to black and back again depending on the time of day and light available. I love the stairs I get when driving through town, especially when I pull up to other trucks and look down into their cab. Its priceless.

I still get compliments on my '09 during the day, they call it sunburst orange, i call it burnt orange
You don't want to see it under sodium lights, that are in some parking lots though, i can't describe the UGLY color that it turns into at night under those lights

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!
The Maximum Steel is beautiful indeed and overall it is a beautiful truck. I need a truck, have looked at Ford, Chevy, Tundra, Titan, Sierra, all of them. They are all readily available. But I keep coming back to the Ram even though I cannot yet get what I want.

Like you said, this truck is a WINNER for sure! That's why it is so hard to get!
