Default What does it take to stop a Ram?

I'm a new member here, and I joined 'cause this is a great site to see so many different, 100% awesome, custom Rams. I have a picture I'd like to share, to just show everyone exactly what it takes in order to stop a Ram. I see old 90s Fords, early 01-03 chevys, and cheap tundras slowly fail and die. I hear non-Ram-owners automatically diss the truck (primarily due to the fact that they cannot afford one).

We had a 1994 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2L V8 Magnum Quadcab. For ELEVEN years (*11*), we used that truck constantly. It had around 200,000+ miles on it, often towed an 8,000 lbs trailer (barely), and we worked it harshly. But it didn't take a heavy load to crack this truck. It didn't take constant usage. It didn't take climbing up mountains. It took this:

A 5 foot flood of salt water... courtesy of the Gulf of Mexico. I took this picture when the flood was 3-4 ft. I should have stuck around for the finale... the 5 ft water carried the truck away, where it literally Rammed into a neighbor's front door. Even he managed to see the irony. That is what is so great about the Dodge Ram. It takes a 5 foot flood (of corrosive salt water) for 4 hours, and drifting across the backyard, into the street, and smacking a house to finally kill it. Nothing less. We got a new 05 Ram with the popular 5.7L Hemi, and at 5 years old, it still looks and works like new.

If you want something that will last you, get the truck whose only weakness is being submerged.

That's an amazing pic, sorry to see the ram die, but at least you got an '05 HEMI out of it.

Thanks, yeah it was pretty surreal. We wake up early one morning, see the hurricane blew some leaves and branches around. We go back to bed, wake up three hours later, and and see our backyard chairs floating down the street...

We loved that truck, and thouht it would last long enough for me to use it in high school (I was 15). But yeah, we did get a better truck out of it. The old Dodge could barely pull that 8,000 lbs trailer. The hemi ram tows the trailer like it's a radio flier.
