They spoke the truth, the one to two upshift in the Ram has a real delay between gears and causes it to lag behind just a bit. I've noticed this in the R/T already...
According to this chart.....I should see the Chevy's tailgate through my windshield....but I only see their grill in my mirror! What am I doing wrong?

Now that's funny!
I must be doing it wrong as well.

In other news, although not a Tundra, I routinely smoke my wife's automatic and stock 09 Corolla S.

The Tundra's that I have seen tend to shy away when they catch a glimpse of my big blue Hemi.

A kid in a QC Chevy tried racing me last night from about a 65mph roll. By the time we hit 80mph I was almost completely in front of him and then he shut down. I tried getting video but I got about 2 seconds of me leaving him and him shutting down.

The only time I thought I was gonna have a chance to take one on, it turned out he was turning left at the light and I was headed straight. It was right after the new ones first came out, so needless to say I wanted to see what it could do. The douche driving it, and his idiot, monkey boy passenger, tried to rev up to get me to look at his "cool" brand new Tundra- and then started laughing as their light turned green and they punched it while I sat at my still red light. I never wanted to wipe the retard grin off somebody's face worse than that moment, but as I started to go for the left and chase them down, the left arrow turned red and my light turned green so I said screw it and continued on my way home from work. Every other Tundra I've ever lined up next to either had a grandpa or a soccer mom driving and none have expressed any interest in a good ole fashioned showcase showdown.- maybe someday...lol

as far as i know (havent proven myself ...yet!) the 09/10 rams can take both but i believe the 08 and earlier are a bit lacking on the power to weight ratio...this is all stock...not sure about after mods

does any one use their truck for work? Toyota builds a one size fits all truck. which is fine if you just want a truck for a status symbol. but american auto groups build more suitable trucks for every day use. I dont think I have ever seen a toyota or Nissan on any jod site i have ever been on.
