When i was looking for my ram i was going to get the 09 ram, i test drove it home. Its a very nice truck. They have no good insentives on it right now, they are all on the 08's. So i got the 08, but in my opinion, the 08 had more get up and go, the 09 seemed like it was limited. But i am VERY happy with my 08. Oh yea, i snapped a pic off my phone for you guys to see. Take a look!
