I love my dodge ram. It is a 02 quad cab. My first one. Picked up last Saturday. Have 3 kids and a Mustang Gt just wasn't doing the job lol. But honestly I love this truck. It has so much room and the ride is very comforting. Trying to talk my dad, Chevrolet fan since forever, to buy one. He is after driving mine. Lol.

One time it was raining and I saw a Corvette in front of me punched it around the turn and lost control while doing it so as I am laughing at him I cut the wheel put the pedal to the floor drifted around the corner and continued to go down the street sideways and then corrected myself and came out of it perfectly I had a huge smile on my face.

Another time is when I was up at our hunting camp and I saw a little mud hole. So I figured, ahhh I can make it through. I actually did, but little did I know what looked like dry ground right passed the hole happened to be some sticky stuff!!! Well I eneded up getting stuck, but the whole time I was slinging mud I had a huge smile on my face





I love driving my Ram

Alright, I got a couple for ya. My In-Laws live literally 5 mins walk from my place, They know when I start my truck b/c it's so loud!

My Father-in-Laws chevy truck broke down and I lent him my Ram. He was stopped at a red light and the police car pulls up right beside. You guessed it, the light turned green and my in-law was too scared to hit the gas and idled off the green, thought the officer would write him a citation for excessive noise violation!

Gotva great smile today; got to pull a stuck Honda out of a ditch. The fun part was I came to the rescue after a dude with a 4x4 ford ranger couldn't get the job done.

Got to love the RAM!

Just look at my Profile Picture to see what makes me smile.

The Yukon's Fixes:
Air Intake gasket
water pump
3 transmissions in 80K miles
countless squeeks

The Rams fixes:
Cat and exhaust was rattling (sounds much better now)
....... that's it......
The Ram also has 20K miles more than our Yukon.

Nothing built like a Ram.

Friend of mine pulls up beside me today in his F150 5.4 and wants to race for the token $50. I suggested that although a complete waste of time, I would accommodate him as soon as I dropped off the trailer. He reminded me of my "Any Time Any Where" comment, and he was picking 'Now and Here'. So off we go. Fortunately, I was in 4wd, so was able to ask the Hemi for all it had, knowing full well that this was not going to turn out good. Surprise, surprise, the Ford got me out of the hole, but 3 blocks later, I was passing him.

He follows me to my shop, hands me 50 and comments that if he had known the trailer was empty, he probably wouldn't have been so brave. I smiled, opened the trailer, and recruited him to assist me in removing the 3200Lb payload.

Have I ever mentioned how much the Hemi makes me smile.

Best story I have is from this winter when we had tons of snow in NJ. During one of the snowstorms, I was getting gas (which I spend a lot of my time doing) and a Prius pulled up. The guy made a comment about my truck having really bad gas mileage. A couple miles down the road I see a Prius in a ditch. He'd slid off the road and was stuck.

I even had the self control not to say anything when I pulled his Prius out. I just smiled and he clearly got the point.
