My only worry is, the bottom of the radiator grill is swept backwards...................Should be great for collecting snow!


Plus the bed is getting smaller and smaller.......................Soon it will become a car!

I'd like to have a brand new ram as well only I would like it in electric blue instead of that other blue. Don't get me wrong I do like the other blue but it would imo show more scratches being a darker color.

One of the best changes by dodge, IMO It gives it a more muscular stance with a certain ellagance also a fresh look seeing how everyone except ford has changed there lines to look similar to the RAM.

Seems to me Dodge made a conscience effort to make this an everyone truck, But in doing so they split the hard core truckers from the home owner needs a truck now and then type. This 09 version is mechanicaly superior in every aspect to previous rams, But the "take my truck to the formal shindig" look to attract a bigger niche market only alienates more people than it gains.

Its more user fiendly, But if it didn't change to look like an older F150 (from the side view) I might have consided spending the extra dough and bought an 09 instead of an 08.

Rams used to lead the way in style , Now they blend in with the other mush thats out there. Thank God the Hemi kicks ass. Its Chocolate ice cream in a vanilla market.

Default new 2009 body

the new body style is nice. it makes the truck look sleek, but the one thing that i really like about the body is the box that is built into the sides of the bed. i wish they came out with that sooner for stock trucks
