Hey guys, I'm Josh. When I came back from overseas I really wanted a 4wd. My wife said as long as I don't go upside down. I owed 15800 on a 2011 Tacoma Prerunner. Well I found a single cab 2011 Ram 1500 in Belton for 13000. Both the trucks had roughly 130k on them. Yet the Ram I assumed used to be a work truck. Bare bones with 4wd and Tow Package (trailer brake and stuff) At first me, and my wife were hesitant because KBB said my Taco was only worth 12900 after I beat the **** out of it. The dealer offered me 18k So after tax tag n title I owe 10k on my Ram. Which made the wife happy 387 a month to 180. Anyways without further hesitation here she is when I got her. Side note quick comparison to my Tacoma.
Tacoma TRD Sport Prerunner rides much smoother then the Ram. I'm assuming its because of less weight, and stock bilsteins. We have a decently rough dirt road that has a 40mph speed limit tacoma had no issues flying down it. The Ram on the other hand even at 30 felt like it wanted to lose control (both in 2wd). I feel every bump in the road with the Ram. Honestly the pick up feels about the same. Obviously the ram tows more. The Ram being a base model kinda sucks hand cranking windows no fun. No power locks either so i tend to forget to lock my darn truck lol. I do like how roomy it is for a regular cab, and the wider bed. Also performance doesn't feel like it suffers with my sportbike in the back. The Rams headlights look new but they suck. The stock tacoma has much brighter headlights. Tacoma has much better approach angle. I slammed the **** out of the front bumper at Hidden Falls adventure park. Its pretty caved in well the bottom of the Ram.
