Default New Truck - Bought Saturday on the jobsite Monday

Hey all,

Im new to the forums - I just brought home my first truck... a 2010 Ram 1500 Big Horn 4x4 Quad Cab. I work in construction as a project engineer, and the audi A4 just wasnt cutting it anymore! To be honest I never thought I'd buy a dodge, since I really didnt like the previous generation. When the 2009's came out they really caught my eye.

6 months ago I went to Chevy, Ford, and Toyota, but I couldnt even get a decent 2wd full size for much less than $30k! Dodge's incentives are killer right now and I ended up walking out the door with a mineral grey 4x4 quad cab big horn with the 390hp hemi, tow package, folding tow mirrors, power adj. pedals for 24,900 - the sticker is 27,000 so 12,000 off MSRP. Not only that, but I got the interest rate (5.19% for 72) I was quoted by a credit union matched by GMAC.

They tried to sell me on a Mango Tango Orange one, bu I just couldnt picture myself in it. Overall Im very happy, I love my truck (so much hp!), and I plan on keeping it for a long time. I also have a 1968 AMC Javelin with a 401 and 4 speed, so Im not new to the Mopar game (even though AMC is sort of a redheaded step child). I just graduated college, so this is sort of a present to myself.

Im looking forward to learning about my truck, and hopefully a lift and tires are in the future next year. I was pretty excited to use the 120v outlet on the jobsite today to charge my rigid tools!
