Recently when my wife and I were on a camping trip as we pulled into a campground a fellow came up and said nice truck, love those Ram's. Then on the way out, he and another guy said you can leave that truck here.

I'm the old geezer in my old '93 Dakota pulling up to places where y'all boys are saying, "Nice truck!".

I've had some fellow RAMmers, and a few non RAMmers, comment on my 3rd gen truck. It's a Ram, so of course the say "nice truck"! But then they ask me about the spikes on my hood and my wheels. Are they vinyl? Nope. They are Plasti-Dip, just like my wheels. Some nod their head and say 'kewl", others get a strange look on their face and ask what Plasti-Dip is. Well, that's another tread entirely, but I splain it to them and then.. click! The light bulb in their heads turn on and the idea's start to nurture. Gawd, I love my nice truck!

Speaking of girls, one of my friends is a bikini model and the first time she rode in my truck, she said she liked it and was asking about what subs I had.

AND???????????????????????? Seriously though, at my local 7-11 there are always a bunch of guys hanging out there drinking their coffees. I always get "Damn, did you just drive that out of the showroom?" or "Wow RCSB Hemi? That thing must be fast as hell!" I thank them, then when I pull out of the parking lot with them all expecting me to stomp on it, I just ease into it and let her do a low growl down the road. Let 'em guess! LOL!

Got a few compliments at the gas station and stores over the years. I mostly provide the "nice ride" compliments when i see other Rams.

I always get a stare and head turn from guys going by in their lifted Cummins.
Actually, I don't know if this is cool or not. I work for a school district and help with the band quite a bit (yea, I was a band geek). They just had band camp and I was opening the field for their parent preview and like 8 of the kids said they loved my truck and were going to beat me up and steal the keys... hahaha.
The story would have been much better if it started off with......"This one time at band camp"..........just sayin'. LOL.....

I've had quite a few compliments...

Moving into my apartment building. This is an upscale building where there are far more Mercs, BMWs and Audis than any other brands.

Parked out front unloading my stuff, some bookish older guy (walking by with a tight, trophy Asian hottie) said, "That's a nice truck!"

One guy in my new office, who drives a BMW X1, raves on and on about my truck...

I've had a few Ram drivers give me a thumbs up or a wave on the road. Usually guys driving older Cummins rigs that are obviously well cared for.
