    I don't deserve my name any longer....but now with pics

    ...here on GMi. I traded my 2006 Silverado in on friday for a 2010 Dodge Ram. It was sad to see the ole Chevy go, but it was time. 60k and 4 years later, she was a great truck but had a few problems. I've never owned a truck other than Chevrolets before, so this is uncharted territory for me. I'll post some pics of the Ram tommorrow morning!

    BTW, it's a black crew cab with the Big Horn package and the HEMI. I love the dual exhaust out the back....really cool from the factory!!

    Isn't it technically just a Ram 1500 now?

    Just think of it this way, your name relates to your new Ram's Kelley Blue Book value!

    Seriously, though, congrats on the new ride. Looking forward to the pics...

    Congratulations. I hope it serves you as well as has my 1998 Caravan when I bought it from lease in Denver that fall. Good solid van to haul my stuff and plants and pets back then when I summered in Denver, wintered in Tampa. I often got 29 mpg on those long road trips between Tampa and Denver many times even when loaded for bear.

    I hope that truck is a gem for you.

    I wonder why GM bailed totally on mini-vans? They are not in that market all.

    Had some problems?
    Out of curiosity, was your Chevy truck at any point during your ownership ever "like a rock": dead on the side of the road!!

    ??



    P.S. Congrats on the new truck!

    At least he still supported his country. Nothing to ashamed of with a HEMI powered Chrysler product.

    Congrats. May your next 60,000 miles plus of ownership be problem free. Who knows you may be interested in Chevrolet again down the road when they get this next full size truck re-design done.

    Charger is on my radar as a possible G8 GT replacement. All three Detroit brands get my consideration from now on.

    Think of it this way, before you had (2006) 5 yrs/36K mile powertrain warranty;with Dodge it is now a 100K warranty on par with GM's on the powertrain. So you are getting a comparable Truck buy!

    Additionally Best Wishes with your new RAM!

    Oh my goodness, that sounds like a great truck. Excellent, fantastic choice.
