Default Had My Truck for 4 Days - Impressions

Good Day all,

I've been waiting for my truck for about 10 weeks, it came in on a Friday and I picked it up on the following Thursday (my choice).

I did a lot of research on what truck I wanted and took a good look on the features and I was very practical about everything down the line. Dodge Ram won, and I specifically wanted the TRX 2wd QC.

When I finally test drove it, I was amazed, impressed, shocked (good way) pick a good superlative and that was me!

The way the sun glinted off the hood, the gleam of the tires and rims the colour scheme inside and out, everything just struck me the right way.

I must admit, being a 2wd I thought it would sit lower than a 4X4 and I was looking/reading about having it lifted, but it's perfect. I don't know if it's because it's a TRX model and they are supposed to be higher than the standard, or someone made a mistake but I love how it sits. Much higher than a lot of stock F150s, Silverado's etc.

The colour popped, the inside is so comfortable, quiet and large, everything is easy to set (U-connect, Preset stations, Serious radio). I have the radio controls on the back of the sterring wheel. I love everything about it.........it was very much worth the wait.

It's tough to keep the foot off the gas for the break-in period. It feels like the ponies just want to let loose. Yes it's a 4.7L but driving nothing larger that my intrepid (with a 2.7L), it feels powerful to me. (I think you Hemi guys must be in heaven, when you let it all out on the highway).

I haven't let the wife drive it yet, I'm afraid she'll want one too, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.............

Way to go Dodge, keep it up.
