Default Really happy with my express

Having owned four previous Ram 1500's I bought a new 2014 Express in Flame red, my third Flame Red Ram. I looked hard at Sports and Laramie's but I got what I needed not what would have been nice, cost wasn't really a factor.

Quad Cab, 4 x 4, Hemi, 20" wheels, etc. (and red) for $29K, is that a bargain or what!?

Missed out on the Sport hood but for $29K I thought it was a deal.

Yes, it's a color matched dash topper brand, really the best one out there. Did Westin chrome step bars, MOPAR bed mat, added a MOPAR hitch receiver, weather guard floor mats, and flame red front bumper plugs to plug up the holes drilled for the front license plate.
The ucconect is a great option that came with the express, love this truck!

Nicely done.
I have the uconnect 5.0 and it's great! I can have my text messages read to me, send text replies, make and answer calls without touching my phone, and I'm sure more that I haven't chose to use yet- I'm a bit behind the tech curve, so the simple things amaze me.

very nice truck man. If the express came with the 8 speed it would be hands down the best truck purchase out there dollar for dollar.

Great looking truck. Looks exactly like mine although mine is a crew cab. You don't think that the Flame Red stands out that much until you see one coming at you from blocks away

As mquinn66 mentioned, the 8sp is a $500 option which is well worth the money. It makes the 3.21 gearing found on most trucks feel MUCH more alive, and it shifts smoothly through the gears.

It does now. I think it was a mid 2014 option. I'm pretty sure that the 8 speed Hemis only made it down to the Lone Star/Big Horn in 2013. My truck was the lowest trim I could find that combo in when I was shopping.
