Its embarssing to be driving this thing around when people ask you if its real or fake because so many posers decided to flood the market with fake ones. On that note, good bye Ram R/T, going back to Chevy. Lesson learned.
I'm not one to be rude, but I'll call a duck a duck and if I see a Jacka%$, I call them a Jacka$%. You Sir are being a Jack a$%... First off who cares what someone else does to their truck, it shouldn't effect your decision regardless. Second, get your comparisons right, it's fiero/FERRARI. Besides these were two different car makers, one in which was a euro sports car company and the other not so much... Your comparing apples to steak... The ram express/ram RT are one in the same, with a few options that separate the two. They both have the same body, engine, transmission. The only big differences are the 4.10 gears, Torque Converter, springs and then the cosmetic stuff that every other truck has that Dodge sells. Do you even know what RT stands for or did you have to google it??? Grow up kid... If your old enough to act better then stop wearing your kids pants...

Yeah there was a few minor differences here and there, but like the OP, I know I can do things with this truck to make it mine and still have money in my pocket during the process. And thanks for the compliment on my truck and the quad cab is my wife's truck. I got it for her March of 2010 to replace a 2009 Journey (The Jalopy edition) that was about to get drove off into a river somewhere. That derned car was making Dodge look real bad.
I hear you. I bought my truck about 6 months before the express came out, and if I would have known I would have got the single cab express, and bought the wife an suv(we need the backseat, hence the quad cab). I'm still debating trading mine in for an express and getting her a new car as well, just not willing to take the financial hit...

In this day and time you gotta watch the money. Never know when it will go away.

I think you jumped the gun here, Im pretty certain hes referring to the rarely tasteful Fiero to Lambo body conversions. There are also Ferrari body conversions for Fiero's.

LOL!!! My bad, so they had both kits... Still the same concept and he was still being a Jacka&$. I guess I didn't know my fiero history as well as I thought I did, um... Yeah I'm ok way with that, no jumping the gun here, lol...

I actually decided to keep it. But i am going to take the emblems of my grand national and change that to a regal t-type because its the same car except for a few things I love that, its the same EXCEPT. If you say except then its not the same. And i hate to say it the truck isnt all that fast. I personally think y silverado ss was faster with the 6.0. But i dont buy these to race, and i have no idea what they did for times. But if i did want to go fast i wouldnt be shoppng at chevy,ford, or dodge for that. I dont think a $25-30k truck is ever going to be fast with out putting another $15k into it. Unless you think 12-13's is fast.

It's all relative. 12's and 13's is pretty quick for a street car/daily driver, especially when it's a near 5,000 lb full size pick up truck. And even more so when it's got a back seat . Of course the guys that run top alcohol probably wouldn't get much thrill from running a 13 second truck down the strip, but like I said it's all relative. A big heavy truck that runs as fast as most brand new sports cars do off the lot is pretty impressive.

I think what he's trying to say, is that the hemi (ram) does pretty good for it's size and there are some sports cars(not talking about the beast of sports cars) that can barely hang with it. I don't think he's comparing it to a new camaro SS or a new 5.0 mustang, We all know the Ram's limits even though we'd all like to smoke one.
