Hi everyone! It's actually nice to be part of the club finally! I lurked for awhile and didn't see a need to register till i actually had a ram.
For the better part of the last six months I started talking about getting mustang GT and it was beginning to drive everyone crazy. One day while i was at work i was expecting a delivery for a our job site. We were in a underground maze of a parkade and he was a new driver so he had no clue where he had to go. I ended having to go top side to meet up with him and show him to our site. I got in his truck and was looking around inside and I asked if it was new. It was 2 days old. I couldn't believe how NICE it was! Storage! Storage! Storage! and it handle nice and tight!
I made up my mind that i would test drive the ram to see if i liked it. The weekend i was planning to look around I ended up getting sent out of town so it was an excrutiating week waiting to get back and test drive. I DID while i was out of town, lurk around on the forum here and keep an eye out for what i wanted.
So when i came home friday morning i grabbed my room mate and we went to this one dealership to look at a mustang gt. While I was driving that the salesman asked if we had other cars in mind and i said the Ram. Which he thought was off the beaten path after looking at mustangs. LOL I thanked him for the test drive and went next door to the dodge dealership. Norman greeted me and noted that he saw how much time I spent at the other dealership.
So I sat down with him, he asked a bunch of questions and went to the get a truck from the lot. He pulls up with the 07 Ram which drove to see if i liked it. To be honest it impressed me more then i thought it would but it still felt, very ''trucky''. When he asked me what i though that was what I told him. So he said, well, let me pull a 2011 out and you can try that.
I gotta tell yah, NIGHT AND DAY difference! It was like driving a car only higher up! It handles very well, enought to satisfy my sports car side and the hemi definately also satisfied that side. My roommate even noticed the difference as a passenger! I pulled over and let her have a go and even she was impressed (no easily done i might add) She even comment that she could get into one had she driven one before buying her Focus.
So what else could i do? I bought it. With all the incentives and trying to meet my monthly payments and stuff, he took 10k off the 41k sticker price. Cuase it's a new truck I was able to get a 5% finance rate with my roommate co-signing. (my credit isn't the best and the whole thing almost didn't happen)
So anyways, 2011 SLT CrewCab shortbox, console/bucket seats up front, silver, power group, 115v outlet, beige cloth interior, heated mirrors.
I. LOVE. THIS. TRUCK.
Now before you start going:
I've only had the truck 14 hrs as of this post. so don't worry, i'll get them up soon.
Thanks for reading, all! Hope to get to know you all soon.
For the moment i only have one mod planned and that is the 14'' magnaflow exhaust. (anyone got a price/part# ?)
