Default Great looking site.

Hi all. My name is Tony, and I am from Tennessee. Been wanting a new Dodge truck for a while, so I went yesterday and got one. Well it's kind of a funny story.

Went to our local dealership 2 weekends ago and was looking around, but found nothing I liked. Later that day I looked online and seen a beautiful Flame red 1500 4X4 that I just loved. It had a leveling kit under it and big massive tires and wheels. I go to the dealership and ask about it, "I don't see it must have sold it" was what the salesmen told me. I leave the lot sad.

Get a call from another of their salesmen this past Friday and he said he found the truck on another one of their lots and could have it trucked here within the day. I said yes get it so I can see it. The truck arrived that evening around 7:00 and while it was being unloaded the driver smacks into a pole with it and damages the passenger side under the doors.

I go on the lot happy to see my future truck, and was very disappointed to see the metal dented and ripped.

The salesmen comes out and said he was sorry about it, but they could have another truck sent to them and put all the upgrades on it. I said sure. The same day they had a truck deliver a load of vehicles and there was another 1500 Flame Red just like the wrecked one. They put a group of guys on it and had it fixed up in about 4 hours.

By the time they had it fixed up, we had all of our paper work done, and came home to put the hardtop and full door on the 2008 Jeep Wrangler that we were trading in.

So all in all, it has been an eventful few days. I now have me new "mini monster truck" and am very happy.

Sorry for the long first post, But I just had to write the story out. I have the pictures of the damaged truck I will post tomorrow if anyone is interested.

Tony

Howdy, Tony, and welcome to what's affectionately known as "The Z". We love stories and pictures. Thanks for sharing and posting the pics. Nice looking truck you got there. There's a lot of great knowledge, ideas and info available here on the Z cyber world. Don't hesitate to ask a question or boast about your beast.

Thanks again for the warm welcome, and the good comments on the truck. I found out that it's not as easy to park this thing like it was my Jeep. It takes me 2 or 3 try's to get in a parking spot . My Jeep you could park it in the small compact spots with no problems.

Tony
