Default Looking for First Ram

Greeting everyone. I currently own a POS car, and am looking forward to get my first RAM when I get back from Deployment. All I do during my spare time is research Rams, and look at pictures. It's kinda been an obsession on the thing to look forward to when I get back. On here to learn as much as I can for when I finally get to walk into a dealership and drive away in my First Ram and First Truck. Can't Wait.

Thank you for your service sir! And yes, we look forward to your safe return and turning your key in a new Ram! You definitely work hard so you need to play hard bud! If your single, 2014/15 Ram R/T. If you got kids and toys to tow, 2014/15 Crew with Hemi or Cummins!

I appreciate the advice. I'm thinking a 2013 Laramie 4x4 CrewCab. Thoughts? I was trying to decide about leveling it. Are ramboxes really worth the extra cash with all the extra storage already on the truck? I plan to keep this truck for a while so I want to make sure I make the smart/right choice. I'm more concerned with that than I am about the price. I"ve seen lots of complaints about the touchscreen radio. Does anyone know what Ram is doing to address these issues?

You can go wrong with a 2013 Laramie. Ramboxes are most definitely worth the extra cash.
I can't address the touch screen issue since I don't have one. But I think for the 14 model year they have worked a lot of the bugs out.

Hey Welcome to the 'Z'. Here you will be able to find everything you are looking for. Great people here to help answer any questions you have about your truck, any ideas you have for Mods, and also put awesome Mod ideas into your head. Glad to have you with us and I hope you enjoy your time here as much as I have. Any questions on any mods ideas or problems you have feel free to post a message on my profile by clicking on my name or clicking HERE and I will try my best to help. I am sure they will soon have the touchscreen radio kinks all fixed if they not already do. Every manufacturer has kinks to work out for the first few years after a new model (Example the ford eco-boost still sucks with major issues). The Ramboxes are a great feature, all depends how you use your truck though. It does make the box a bit more narrow, but allows for you to be able to safely lock and store items in the boxes. I have heard from Chunkem that I beleive it was 2 24's and ice will fit perfectly in them
