Default New to RAM, new to MOPAR, new to Forum

I've owned a Nissan Frontier (traded for the ram ecodiesel), chevy, ford, toyota, etc... but this is my very first Dodge. Never considered before but my wife and i completely agreed on trim, price, motor, etc. ... and man, when the stars align like that you just have to go with it ya know?

Looking to learn more as information as it is available. already seeing great gas mileage. only 100 miles on the truck. doing 19.3 and continuing to increase with each trip. vs. the 17mpg my frontier got. ...

As far as getting a new truck, the only reason was for the safety of my family (good reason!) ... first daughter was born in april and my wife was literally in the dash of the frontier to fit the carseat in the back.

Glad to be here and thanks in advance for the welcomes!

Welcome to the Z, (your families safety) is definitely a good reason to upgrade from your Nissan. I had a 4 door Sonoma and a car seat in the back just wasnt going to be an option so I went on and traded. Congratulations on your first daughter, hope she and the mom are doing good. In September my RAM is going to have a new and more important job than ever before and that will be keeping my first child (girl) safe.
